We spent three very pleasant and relaxing days of our holiday at La Quintana del Cuera. The hotel sits in a lovely quiet village location, between the coastal town of Llanes and the Cuera mountains of the Picos de Europa.
Our room was very pleasant, southfacing, with a balcony overlooking the garden and the mountains in the distance. The beds were comfy and we had a settee, a small table and chair, big built in wardrobes and more chairs on the balcony. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and roomy. The lovely outdoor swimming pool is one of the nicest I've used and I've used a few. The garden area has some attractive shrubs and small trees, ideal for sitting quietly on a lounger and reading or sunbathing between dips in the pool. There are also several covered terrace areas and rooms in the hotel to curl up with a book or socialise with other guests if the weather isn't so good or even if you just want to sit out of the sun.
Breakfast was superb with a great selection of hot and cold choices to set you up for the day. Available up until 10.30am so no need to get up too early on your holidays. They serve evening meals during the high season but we missed out on that, arriving on the last day of August. It wasn't really a problem for us as we enjoyed our evenings wandering round Llanes and trying out the many eateries available there.
We hadn't pre-booked this hotel but I'd seen it listed in the 'Casonas Asturianas' book. After abandoning our planned hotel (which was not up to scratch), we decided to see if we could find this hotel, hoping they wouldn't be fully booked. The owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful as our Spanish left just a little to be desired. It was a good choice and we had a lovely relaxing few days here before moving on to our next planned location in the Picos.
We love this area of Spain and we'll definitely come back to this hotel on our next holiday in Asturias.
