Overview

About the property

6 bedroom, 4 bathroom with views, terrace and garden

Casa Blas, a grand old stone farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century, is situated in the village of Banastón Usana near Ainsa. The imposing oak front door of Casa Blas is reached after passing by a small chapel and through a covered street, the longest of its kind in the region. This former farmhouse has been beautifully restored with great respect for the original structure. Traditional features such as wall recesses, windows and wrought ironwork have been maintained to give a truly authentic feel to this magnificent dwelling.

The entrance hall with its rounded stone ceiling, its stone walls adorned with agricultural artefacts and its original stone vat for storing olive oil plunges you into a wonderfully rustic atmosphere. The first floor is home to a spacious living and dining room with colourful baked earth floor tiles and balcony, a small well equipped kitchen and for those who enjoy taking a step back in time, an authentic Aragonese kitchen. Two delightful double rooms are also to be found on this level.

The top floor has four double rooms with wonderful old decorative floor tiles, a separate bathroom, laundry room and a terrace where the sunsets are not to be missed over the Mediano Lake and surrounding countryside. The amazing width of the stone walls allow guests to enjoy a naturally cool atmosphere in summer as well as great protection from the rigours of winter thanks to a good central heating system.

The owner, who lives nearby is a fountain of information concerning the history of village and for those interested, there is always the possibility of visiting the former bakery, wine making room and alcove sleeping quarters where the owner can regale you with stories from days gone by. In the immediate area you can go for walks (the Villarcillo Chapel is a half hour walk from Banaston) or go horseriding in Banaston Barrio de la Iglesia or Church Quarter. A tour of the region by car is recommended as is a visit to the medieval village of Aínsa. Not to be missed is a visit to the Sierra de Guara Park, the Ordesa Park or the Posets-Maladeta Park, all of which offer and endless array of outdoor activities.
