La Casona del Pastor
Reviewed 10 December 2012

The place is fantastic. The rooms and common areas, as well as the garden, have real charme but best of all is the warm hospitality of Jonathan. La Casona del Pastór (you'll soon find out who the shepherd actually is) is a very welcome change from the norm in mountain / ski hotels. The slopes are 20' drive from the Casona. A really wonderful family vacation and we look forward to coming back, either for skiing or to enjoy other seasons. Thank you!!

The place is really lovely, with a big garden to chill and have a beer or a wine.
The room was very big and clean. The bathroom the same. Breakfast was plentiful and very very tasty.
However the village has not much to offer and you have to use the car/bike to go anywhere.

Small annoyance: While paying we realized that the price for the room announced was without VAT, so that made the stay a bit more expensive.

We - two adults and two children - stayed at this amazing hotel, situated in a small village with the most fantastic view of the mountains surrounding it, for two days. The landlord, Jonatan, made us feel completely at home after five minutes and gave us two rooms at the same price of the one we had booked in advance because they were available and he wanted us to enjoy the stay as much as possible. He let us use his kitchen and told us to use his private winebar if we felt like it - at no extra charge. In the small village - Valganon - absolutely nothing happens. Three old guys sit at the square. Theres a tiny little restaurant and bar serving food out of their own kitchen. Cattle with cowbells walk around minding their own business and wild game appear in the backyard. It is so beautiful and amazing and everybody working 9-5 year after year should grant themselves two weeks at this place every year to wind down. La Casona del Pastor has a beautiful garden where you could choose to enjoy your breakfast which is homemade and different every morning. You eat what they serve and we loved it. If you want a truly rural journey and dont need cable- tv, Disneyland and McDonalds this is the place to go. On the day of our departure Jonatans mom picked fresh cherries and strawberrys from her own garden so we had a little something to eat on our drive to Bilbao. Thats the kind of personal service you would like to have everytime you go on a journey. Hasta luego -La Casona!

I had a marvelous experience staying at "La Casona del Pastor". It was like being home, the owner let us use the kitchen, we also made a fab BBQ in the big green garden overlooking the hills. The rooms were comfortable and the hotel is the perfect place to relax away from the big city. We went for undisturbed walks in the mountains during the day and spent the nights around the fireplace with the feeling of experiencing the "real rural Spain". I will definately go back at the first chance as i know that there will be loads of chill and the purest mountain air awaiting!

Room Tip: All the rooms we had were very nice, suppose the rest look the same.
