Special Groups

Over the years, we have hosted many special groups from all walks of life. As a result, our hotel has been steadily upgraded to meet the special requirements that groups require without them actually realizing it:
Drying facilities: For wet clothing and anything else (mobile phones included).
Abundant solar powered hot water (with conventional backup): So nobody gets the “last” cold shower.
External hosepipes: Used for cleaning various forms of transport from boy toy motorbikes, classic cars, normal cars and horses.
Individual tabs per person in the restaurant and bar: To stop squabbles over who drank the most (or least) in the bar.

Early morning Photo Shoot
Dating back to 2001, we have been not only involved with providing board and lodging for various photoshoots & TV productions, but also acting as; location scouts, drivers, fixers and even models! A special mention also has to go to our “young” 1992 Landrover Defender, that has appeared in more glossy magazines than your average “super model” ……..well, nearly!
Here are some of our friends from our photoshoots.

Bike Tours in the Picos de Europa
Bike Tours in the Picos de Europa
On many an occasion, after returning from a day out, exploring the high mountain passes of the Picos mountains, or the winding back roads along the “Costa Verde”, clients have not been able to resist the chance for “one more blitz” along the famous AS114. This 23km stretch of road makes up a small section of the stunning “Golden Triangle”, 200kms of perhaps the finest biking scenery in Europe.

Great place to stay

Probably the most popular of all special groups are private and organized trips to explore the fantastic picos mountains, including the classic Cares Gorge, the Lakes of Covadonga, an exhilarating ride up the cable car at Fuente de and also the superb coastline of the “Costa Verde”
