A stay in the Asturia region is very different from any other kind of vacation in Spain. Verdant meadows with herds of cows, soft hills and high mountain ranges as far as the eye can see. Anyone looking to get to know the beautiful side of Northern Spain will be in good hands at the pastoral Hosteria de Torazo, where modern comfort meets the warm atmosphere of a family-run hotel in an idyllic setting. Airy, light-flooded new buildings have been built with a deep understanding of regional architectural traditions. In addition to 30 tastefully furnished guest rooms, this romantic hotel offers a fantastic, glassed-in wellness area with swimming pool and overwhelming view of the surrounding landscape. A restaurant serves excellent cuisine from the Asturia region. Romantic Hotel: Magical landscape & high indulgence
In the Hosteria de Torazo, romance is ensured in peaceful, tasteful, natural surroundings, whether spending time as a couple, taking a bath in the whirlpool, or enjoying a relaxed evening meal on the panorama terrace. The view from the broad terrace or outdoor pool over rich green fields, forests and mountain peaks is on a par with any Caribbean sunset. Not in the least because of its beautiful location and prompt all-round service, the hotel is also frequently used for wedding parties. Family Hotel: Flexible room occupancy & children’s playground
Families with children are warmly welcomed to the Hosteria de Torazo. And that’s not all; special services and amenities are available for kids. Depending on requests or the size of your family, child beds can replace double beds or be ordered in combination. For smaller children, there is a playground in the outside area with various devices for play and two wood cabins. Food & Drink: Typical Asturian cuisine with a modern touch
Absolutely recommended: the hotel restaurant, where guests can either order a la carte or choose an alternating 3-course menu, served on the beautiful terrace. Both are based on tradition Asturian recipes with products typical for the region. A must-try: local cheese varities and the delicious rice pudding according to a house recipe! Athletics & Leisure: Relax, Swim and Hike
Swimming while enjoying a view of the green countryside is one of the nicest pastimes at Hosteria de Torazo. Both an outdoor pool and a glassed-in swimming pool are available. Indoors, there is also a whirlpool and steam room as well as a treatment room where various massages and body applications are offered. One regional specialty is sidro therapy, which uses the detoxifying effects of sidra, a regional apple wine. If you prefer to have a more active vacation, all sorts of wonderful hikes are available from the hotel door through the partially agricultural landscape (apple orchards, cow meadows and cornfields) and mountain surroundings. On request, the hotel can organize guide-run nature excursions or visits to sidra press-houses. Location: Magnificently secluded
The highlight of the Hosteria de Torazo is its location! From its elevated position, this country hotel offers wide-sweeping views of the soft, hilly surroundings with the peaks of the Picos de Europa range in the background. The next village is Villaviciosa (about 8 mi), Gijon is 25 miles away.
