The room is spacious and bright, and is equipped with a complete private bathroom, heating and a perfectly isolated from the outside to guarantee a perfect rest.
The magnificent stone "Maragata" style house is located in Santiagomillas, a quiet village declared historical artistic set, surrounded by an austere landscape of clean lights. The access is very easy. A paved street located on the outskirts of the town, takes us to the secluded and quiet area where the old Guts Muths inn is located, where since a couple of years I live my retreat dedicated to the care of flowers, the house and the enjoyment of nature , and with the help of my nephew Pablo (who manages the reservations and web management) I want to continue to keep it alive by hosting anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle in search of peace and nature.
I recommend visits to the surrounding villages, as well as to the tourist city of Astorga with its cathedral, the Gaudi palace ... you can even do a small section of the Camino de Santiago to experience the spiritual feeling of the pirgrims, at least for one day (we could organize it, and I can leave you and pick you up wherever you start and you finish). In front of my house there is a small barn where horseback ridings are organized.
Enjoying the spring and autumn sun on the terrace, reading a book in winter in the glazed old style corridor or watching the stars on the summer nights, you will experience a peacefull and unique tranquility. Hiking on the mountain, where you can go pick up some mushrooms in spring and autumn, chestnuts or medicinal herbs that I would love to explain you how and where to find!
Previously I was a cook, specialized in the famous "Cocido Maragato", which for long stays, I could prepare to let you enjoy the typical gastronomy of this region.
In 2001, the avant-garde was chosen to renovate the decoration of the house, for a week, students of Fine Arts of the University of Salamanca stayed here and painted on the walls what the environment suggested.
The result was a novel and unprecedented decoration, characterized by freedom both in technique and in the choice of material, its theme ranges from the poems of Leopoldo Panero to the rural environment that surrounds us.
As I said before, I don't speak english, but my nephew Pablo (who is writing this) is helping me with the reservation and all the web management. And he will be always available by phone, wassap or mail, to help you in everything you need.
Chek in complety flexible, but in any case there is another guests leaving or coming, you should come after 12am and leave before 11am, but if not there is not problem to come sooner or stay longer :)
You will have absolute privacy in the room and in the bathroom where you can only access from inside the room. The garden, the kitchen, the living room, corridor, the patio and others are common areas, where you can relax, read a book, play the guitar or the piano.
Interaction with guests
I will always be in the house, in an attached apartment with my own bathroom and kitchen, in which you can find me all the time, but I will always try to give the greatest independence and freedom to the guests.
Other things to note
I have two kittens, which are wide-ranging in the surroundings, are very friendly and sociable, although they are village cats and you may not even come to see them. Dogs are welcome in the house, but have in mind that they are not going to be the only animals in the garden :)
