Guesthouse in Aniezo, Picos de Europa, Cantabria, Spain - Peaceful Location superb walks from the front door
The steeply wooded hillsides of the sunny Liébana valley hug this tiny hamlet. Opposite the old waterwheel where sheep's fleeces were once pounded into Cantabrian felt, you will find 'La Pisa' (Spanish for 'water wheel') where John and Gwynneth, from Cumbria, have an established reputation for hospitable accommodation and excellent food prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Nothing disturbs the peace and the pretty village green is a place to relax and or makes a good starting point for local walks, mountain bike trails or simply getting off the beaten tracks. Rest soundly in the comfortable contemporary bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. We offer comprehensive local knowledge of the best hiking and snow-shoeing routes; locations for flowers, bird and butterfly spotting. You're close to the Fuente Dé cable car and the classic Picos town of Potes.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Josie - July 2012 - “Absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for more!”
My partner booked our week long stay at La Pisa so I had no idea what to expect... He surpassed himself this time!The room was perfect, comfortable and had complete black out shutters so we slept wonderfully each night.John and Gwen's local knowledge really enhanced our stay and ensured we didn't miss out on anything that was nearby. I would recommend La Pisa to anyone who understands that good food, good wine and better company make for the perfect holiday!
Emma - June 2012 - What a fantastic place to stay ran by one of the nicest couples you will ever have the pleasure to meet. You were made to feel welcome from the off - the room was great, the food was just fantastic and both John and Gwen could not have done more in helping to plan our walks for the days we were staying with them. We will be back!
Chris - January 2012 “A lovely base to tour the Picos De Europa” A warm welcome every time, superb cooking!
