Reviewed 29 October 2011

We stayed with these excellent hosts .for three days. At first the drive to the property seemed a little daunting but is made up for excellent aspects of the Picos.The breakfast taken outdoors (if prefered) is a substantial Asturian fare, with delighful crockery and flatware. The rooms were well appointed with 32" TV and DVD player, safe, comfy chairs, en suite bathroom. There is a guests lounge with open fire, sofas, books, free WiFi, DVD's and an honesty bar for reasonably priced drinks and snacks.

Isabell is an attentive host and goes out of her way to ensure you enjoy your stay. The bedrooms are well appointed with great views over the valley. If you are there for the walking ask Isabell for her suggestions as she knows the area well. The town of Potes is a short drive away. If eating locally,do take an appetite

This delightful Posada is just outside Potes and has wonderful views straight across the valley towards the mountains. Though it has been built quite recently, it is in the traditional style and tastefully decorated inside. The rooms are well-sized and comfortable with wonderful views up and down the valley, and there can't be many better places to sit for breakfast than their terrace.
This is a great base for heading up the road to Fuente De and a few lovely mountain walks, and not too far outside Potes to walk back after dinner, yet comfortably away from the noise and traffic. The owner and his wife Jose Luis and Isabel are very hospitable without being too obtrusive, and the posada also has a fine swimming pool just above the building which wasn't advertised but was very welcome.

Fantastically located just outside Potes with beautiful views of the Picos and valley.

Clean and well done out, fun hydro-massage bath, lots of personal and/or helpful touches (free wifi, well stocked communal drinks fridge and coffee machine for 1.50€ each, DVDs to borrow). 

Nice pool area with decent sun loungers, again, great views - also children's play area and gazebo.

Breakfast well above average for Spain and can be served outside if desired.

A couple of words to the wise...!

Firstly, the driveway is tortuous, gravelly and steep, so any other motorcyclists, go steady!!!

Secondly, this is clearly a labour of love. The owners are friendly and helpful, and also clearly proud of their lovely guesthouse. When our room was cleaned, some of our clothes were hung away for us or packed into our cases, our toiletries were lined up neatly on the bathroom shelf... Depending on your opinion, this might be amazing service or a tad intrusive.

Also, a slight faux pas from us was we put a few picnic items in the aforementioned fridge, but they were removed, and when I enquired after them I got the distinct feeling our hostess was not impressed. 

It's no big deal, but it did make us feel a little like house guests of a tidy couple who like things just so, such that even though warmly invited to "make yourselves at home", we couldn't help but feel a bit nervous about doing something wrong again.

But this is a small point of preference and to be fair, we are a messy couple. Overall, great.

This is a an absolutely lovely place to stay in the Picos. The views are magnificent, the rooms delightful, the breakfasts delicious with local ingredients and the pool refreshing after a day's walking. Isabel and Jose are brilliant hosts; Isabel speaks some English and can give good advice about local walks and Jose does a great breakfast.

Posada el Bosque is a fabulous place to stay in the Picos de Europa. Our room had a full view of the mountains. The owners are wonderful and so are their breakfasts each day. They were very helpful with local recommendations and accommodating in every way. Their place is very well located, near the charming town of Potes, the tramline of Fuente De and the monastery at San Toribio. We will definitely go back to Posada el Bosque!
