Pola de Somiedo | Ref: HSOM2 | Bedrooms: 10

...

Set in one of the most singular areas of the capital of the Somiedo council, this hotel is a mansion whose origins probably date back to the 15th century, although it is likely that the tower, perfectly conserved today, harks back to the Early Middle Ages.

From the access to the country mansion along a path lined with plants and bushes, the visitor reaches a garden surrounding the mansion where, with the passage of time, beautiful hundred-year old trees (birch, fir and pine) have formed a forest that gives shade to the Mansion.

A river of sparkling, clear water pass runs through the estate on the west side, mingling with extensive, green grasslands, where the majestic sight of the Somiedo mountains can be seen.
