We loved our stay at Las Casas del Soto. Ana, the owner, met us at the home, showed us the home, gave detailed instructions on how to use the wood stove which had more than ample supplies (and which was absolutely lovely!) and showed us the local cafe. The home is located in a very small town, surrounded by fields and farms. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet, authentic rural Spain experience this is your place! The home is located a twenty minute drive from Segovia, which we visited twice and which is a gorgeous historic city. Coca, Salamanca, and Avila are all within driving distance of the home for day trips. Although we only drove through it, there are national parks within driving distance as well. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and in general the home was everything we were looking for. Thank you, Ana, for sharing your home with us!
A lovely, roomy, beautifully furnished cottage in the most stunning mountains in Europe. The house is very large, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, siting room and kitchen with al fresco dining on the terrace and off-street parking in the garden. The kitchen is very well equipped - the nearest supermarket 3 km away.
The owners are very friendly and left us homemade cupcakes and biscuits. We had one small problem which they fixed straight away despite our appalling Spanish.
Although we were travelling in summer, the nights were cold (the village is at 860 m) but a log fire in the morning warmed us. The weather was very kind to us - 5 days of sunshine whilst we walked the Cares Gorge to Poncebos (and back), from Pta de Pandetrabe to Fuente De (return by taxi), the valley of Posada de Valdeón and the high valleys round Amieva and Soto de Sajambre.
A great place to stay - many thanks
