“Comfy stay with motorcycles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We only spent one night here, but it was everything you'd want from a B&B. Food was excellent, owners are welcoming and it's cosy and comfy with it's own bar and shaded outside seating areas. We'd definitely stay here again.

We returned to La Pisa this summer for two overnight stays, having been before during the spring, when we were snowed in for 3 days (great fun). La Pisa is set up high in a beautiful valley a few Km from the wonderful town of Potes, deep in the Picos de Europa mountains. The routes to Potes, from the north & south are stunning, requiring concentration when driving or riding, but both routes allow frequent stops for stunning photos to be taken or a drink in a village. The road to Aniezo is excellent and the road off to La Pisa to be taken with a bit of care, especially the up-hill u-turn into La Pisa.
In the summer, La Pisa is delightful & looks beautiful set amongst the woods, fields & houses of this hamlet. The vines around the building were in fruit & will be ready for picking later this year, & the cherry tree was full of delicious cherries.
The surrounding village is quaint, with an interesting mix of houses and farm buildings, a small and interesting water wheel, a small church with two bells, and on the other side of the stream a small typically Spanish cemetery.
Our hosts, John & Gwen, were delighted to see us again & share with us the memories of our last visit. This time it was hot, sunny and so relaxing that we wished we did not have to leave quite so soon. We quickly settled in with drinks and nibbles at the bar where they serve a very nice cold beer and decent glass of red wine.
Our room, as with the rest of the place, was very clean & tidy, with plenty of storage space and room to move & the bed very comfortable. There’s plenty of hot water, even in winter.
We thoroughly recommend eating dinner at La Pisa. John's culinary talents are of a very high standard and although the daily menu may not be as large as that of a large hotel, it changes daily and is truly delicious. Any personal preferences are catered for without a fuss. The wine list is varied and like the food menu, very reasonably priced.
La Pisa is a great place for one night or a few days. There plenty to explore in the surrounding area : numerous beautiful walks, the Picos de Europa National Park, Potes, Riano, Leon, the cable car ride to the top of Fuente De, and the pretty villages along the north coast. Access to both Santander or Bilbao is easy and 2-3 hours away.
This place is an absolute gem in the mountains of northern Spain and well worth a visit.

Stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was lovely. We had no trouble finding it from the directions given. Really is quite rural and you would have to drive to find somewhere else to eat but we would recommend the dinner option as the food here is wonderful. The rooms are spotless and beds comfortable - very quiet too as not near a main road - would highly recommend.

We spent a week at la Pisa in May. It's in a sleepy village with spectacular views from the lovely terrace and garden, and our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean - but what sets it apart are the hosts.
John and Gwen are friendly and welcoming, and their extensive local knowledge helped us to make the most of our visit to this beautiful area. John's food was absolutely superb - a different menu each day, every dish was delicious and beautifully presented and Gwen's efficient and unpretentious service made dinner a highlight of the day. We also appreciated the tasty packed lunches John prepared for our mountain walks.
We intend to return to the spectacular Picos de Europa as there are so many lovely walks and when we do we'll certainly stay at la Pisa again. It was one of the most relaxing places we've stayed in for a long time.

We spent 5 days at La Pisa in May 2012 and had a marvellous stay. John and Gwen were lovely hosts and John's cooking was the icing on the cake. The area is stunning and John and Gwen were very helpful with suggestions for what to do and where to go locally. We hope to be able to visit again on another trip to the Picos. The village is so peaceful and a great base for walking and exploring the countryside.

We found La Pisa via a biker friendly accommodation website before checking out the fabulous reviews on Tripadvisor. Booking the accommodation was easy, helped by John's & Gwen's daughter in UK. Finding La Pisa in the beautiful Picos de Europa mountains was easy too. Just follow the signs off the CA-870, after passing through Cambarco en-route to Aniezo. The place is set in a small village of beautiful, quaint and interesting properties, which includes a small church, a typically Spanish cemetery, fast flowing streams and an interesting water wheel contraption. The welcome given was fantastic; warm and friendly and made all the better by a log fire, warm comfortable rooms and beds, and a well stocked bar. The food was first class; varied and well presented, prepared by John, who's culinary skills are clearly Masterchef level, even a Michelin star as another reviewer has suggested. The wine selection was good too, and we tried several. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, be they directions and travel advice, to hot drinks, beer, spirits & snacks. Wet clothes could be hung in the store to dry out. And when we became trapped by the sudden heavy snow fall staying an extra night or two was no trouble at all. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning. We highly recommend La Pisa to anyone travelling through the area by motorbike, bicycle or car. Stay at least two nights if you can and visit Fuente De and take a ride in the cable car to the top as it's worth it. And to John & Gwen, Thank You just doesn't say enough. Daryl & Catherine.
