Why we love it...

Palatial 18thC house with outstanding gardens

The Place

After several years living abroad, the Castaeda family returned home to transform this palatial 18thC house near Torrelavega into an exemplary rural hotel.
The house, with its stone walls, spreading eaves, bay windows and timbered ceilings, has been restored with great care, especially noticeable in the former library (now the reception area) and the private oratory of a former owner (approved by a bull of Pope Leon XIII).
The hotel’s most outstanding feature is the 4,000 square metre garden which surrounds it on three sides with hydrangeas, climbers, and a magnolia several hundred years old, under which you can sit. The terrace is covered by a shady grapevine.
Demetrio Castaeda and his daughter Sonia serve their guests in person. The restaurant enjoys a reputation of its own: chef Manuel Cespedes supervises the excellent cooking which includes too many specialities, all exquisitely presented, to list here in full.
It is a shame that the main Oviedo to Santander road, with its heavy traffic, runs so close to the hotel. When booking, make sure you ask for a room on the other side.
