Why we love it...

An historic country inn

The Place

You arrive at this secluded retreat, between the mountains and the sea, under an imposing stone doorway bearing the coat of the arms of the Villa-Setién family, the historic owners of this 17thC stone house. It is situated right next to the village church, San Esteban de Mentera. Current owners – a brother and sister team of Josu and Zorione – provide an excellent Cantabrian welcome and, with their extensive knowledge of the surrounding area, can help organise activities such as fishing, horse-riding and quad biking.
Inside, every effort has been made to ensure the comfort of their guests; there is an airy dining room and a sitting room with an open fireplace for when the temperature drops. The ten bedrooms are spacious and comfortable but ask for a room with a balcony to make the most of the spectacular views.
You’ll eat well. The restaurant serves up an excellent buffet breakfast and Cantabrian dinner – and reports of Zorione’s cooking are universally good.
Some have reported that the hotel is hard to find; take the first left after the sign for Mentera village and try to arrive before dark.
