Situated in San Pelayo, a peaceful farming village in northern Burgos, we find this delightful country house; a dream come true for your hosts, Englishman Graeme Hobbs and his friendly Spanish partner, Mari Cruz Totorica who spent more than a year restoring the property.
The house, which is all exposed stonework and hefty wooden beams, has five very comfortable en-suite bedrooms. An abundant supply of water in this part of Burgos means that the showers flow like a refreshing waterfall. Just what you need after an enjoyable late night spent sipping wine and chatting with your hosts in the cosy lounge with big fireplace.
Apart from a delicious breakfast, one can also enjoy tasty traditional meals prepared by Mari Cruz and served by Graeme in the comfortable dining room. A nice selection of wines and after dinner liqueurs is always available.
The countryside around the village invites you to explore and discover beautiful trails for which your hosts will be happy to provide useful information.
This property has been highly rated by all of our past clients who have enjoyed their stay here immensely as we have ourselves. It´s the perfect place to relax for a few days while you tour Northern Spain. It´ll be a highlight of your trip.
Burgos in full
The privileged location of the capital of Burgos lets visitors cover the whole province by following interesting routes to the heart of Castilla-Leon. One of these routes goes from
Burgos along the bank of the Arlanza River, unveiling medieval churches and convents, feudal castles and Renaissance palaces. These authentic gems of the architecture of Burgos are located in towns such as Lerma, Santo Domingo de Silos and Quintanilla de las Viñas.
The Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela, declared World Heritage, goes across the province of Burgos. It consists of an artistic and cultural route lined with churches, hermitages and pilgrim hospitals, along the towns of Belorado, Villafranca Montes de Oca and Castrogeriz.Ribera del Duero, the birthplace of one of the most acclaimed Designations of Origin for wine, surprises visitors with beautiful historic towns. Aranda, Peñaranda and Roa (all within the region of Duero) exhibit Gothic relieves, Renaissance coffered ceilings and interesting cellars.
Popular architecture spreads around thick valleys, high plateaux and bleak lands. There are lots of towns where, in addition to admiring their artistic and cultural patrimony, one can play environmentally-sound, outdoor sports. These include Miranda del Ebro, Treviño and Villasana de Mena.
Something that all these places have in common is their charismatic cuisine. Burgos cuisine is enriched by a great variety of local products, like pulses, cured sausages, game meat, etc. Suckling lamb baked in a wood-fired oven, soused trout and cod stew are some of its best main courses. For dessert, try the delicious "yemas" (a sweet made with egg yolks and sugar), fresh cheese with honey and walnuts, or caramel almonds. All this should be had with some of the famous wines that hold the label Designation of Origin - Ribera del Duero.
