What People Are Saying

“If you would like to live an unique gastronomic experience among the impressive mountains of northern Spain, in a small old village of many centuries with 90 inhabitants and your own wood fire, just come to Pozos and meet the chef Esmeraldo and Laura, the warm hostess so thoughtful to your comfort.

You’ll enjoy your own two story house where on the ground floor you will learn to cook with “Es”, a renowned chef still working for great hotels in Singapore for many years. It is really an adventure you will never forget”.

–Denis – Montreal, Canada 2014

“Great food, fabulous company and by far the best vacation spot ever. Very relaxing. Laura and Es have been so welcoming and so has the entire village. Just so amazing. Thank you for this awesome experience”.

–Michelle & Jamie – Canada 2013

“We had the most amazing time here in Pozos, exceeding all our expectations and hopes. We feel very privileged to have had so many wonderful experiences during our short stay – last night, cooking paella…drinking cider and the fabulous music – gaita, drums and dancing jota, plus la ronda - well! … Thank you for the wonderful memories”.

– Jane & Tony – England 2013

“The hike was amazing…we will never forget. The view was beyond words. One must go and experience it. Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay here longer”.
