Testimonials

"Rachel and Leon's beautifully restored B&B in the picturesque village of Soto d'Agues is a wonderful place to stay. The family are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble - all they care about us that their guests have a great stay. Their two en suite rooms are beautifully decorated with wonderful attention to detail. The superbly comfortable beds guarantee a good night's sleep and you can choose between a balcony looking onto authentic village scenes or a balcony over the murmuring stream which runs beside their house and garden. Rachel's breakfasts on the terrace (more lovely views)feature home made bread, jams, fresh fruit, porridge, as well as fry-ups- absolutely whatever you fancy.
Meanwhile spectacular gorge and hill walks of all levels beckon where you can dip in sparkling pools, stroll among the wild flowers and admire breathtaking views. The village has a surprising number of really good authentic restaurants - and if fish is your thing, Rachel won't let you go without trying the spectacular fish restaurant on the other side of "her" stream where the fish are caught to order (or you can catch yourself if you want to).
It's easy to get to - daily budget flights at 11 with pick up by local cab . Perfectly do-able for a long weekend but you'll love it so much you'll want to stay at least a week! "

"We spent 6 days in June 2014 staying with Rachel and her family in their house, and had a wonderful time. Rachel recommended walks and advised us about the various places to eat in the village. Rachel was very helpful and friendly and told us how to say 'no garlic' in Spanish in the village restaurants. The village has a small shop to buy food for a picnic lunch when doing one of the excellent walks from the village, there are many other walks a very short drive from the village. When returning from a day out Rachel would provide tea and homemade cake. Soto de Agues is a completely unspoilt, none touristy village and is a good base for exploring the local area. Probably the best thing I can say is that we hope to make a return visit to Rachel's B&B. "

"We have recently returned from a wonderful walking holiday in Soto d'Agues and this B&B provided an amazing base. Rachel and her family were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, accommodating our early starts and helping make reservations in the local restaurants, nothing was ever too much trouble. The breakfasts were amazing, sitting on the terrace next to the stream, consisting of scrambled eggs, bacon, porridge, pancakes and plenty of fresh delicious fruit. Every afternoon we were treated to a home made cake and coffee/tea. The rooms are beautifully done and spotlessly clean with extremely comfortable beds. We were in the twin room at the front by the street and slept soundly every night - essential after such busy days walking! This is a wonderful place, a beautiful B&B in a picturesque setting, but it is the hard work that the whole family puts in to making you feel welcome and looking after you throughout your stay, that makes it truly special."
Stayed June 2013, traveled with family via Tripadvisor

"Can't recommend this enough as we had a fantastic stay. We came across this looking for a weekend break in rural Northern Spain, away from the usual haunts, and to explore this area through walking. The 'story book type' bed and breakfast is run by an English couple, Rachel and Leon who have integrated into village life. The accommodation was modern, clean, spacious and homely at the same time. They've restored the house to a high standard and the bed was bliss (important after a day of exploring) Rachel cooked and baked a lovely breakfast each morning but it was her local knowledge that enhanced our trip. Her recommendations on walks, the fresh fish restaurant, organic bakery in the hills and village history- things that don't feature in the guide book made it a unique experience. 2 nights wasn't near enough so we are going back and taking the kids!
