La Casona de San Pantaleón de Aras is a charming small hotel located among the fields, rivers and mountains of the Aras Valley, in eastern Cantabria. The hotel is set in a 17th-century “casona”, typical of Spain’s north – somewhere between a rustic mountain cottage and a palatial mansion. The hotel is surrounded by a large (4,000m2) garden with an orchard, a fruit garden and authocthonous trees set on the river Clarin.
The seven rooms are individually decorated with colourful walls, antique-style furniture, wooden floors and each comes with unique details. Room facilities include heating, a TV, a telephone and a bathroom with a hairdryer. Some rooms have a balcony, a sleeper sofa, a safe or a DVD player.
Inside, enjoy the cozy living room with its fireplace or outside laze on the veranda. Breakfast (included in the rate when booking direct) is served in the atmospheric dining room. There is also a small spa and relaxation area with hydromassage and chromotherapy bath.
Bicycles (first come, first serve) can be rented to explore the surroundings.
