This modern mountain refuge is located in the foothills of the Picos de Europa and looking out at the fertile Liebana valley. It is surrounded by woodlands and hillsides in a region of small hamlets.

The building is at the bottom of the cable car which travels up to the Aliva viewpoint. Look down into the valley and see the Parador of Fuente De in the middle.

The classical mountain style decoration of warm wood and leather furniture recreate the so appreciated warmth of home.

Taste the traditional Cantabrian cuisine in the hotel restaurant such as:
"Cocido lebaniego" which is a local stew of the Liebana valley;
"Ensalada de gallo de corral" which is a chicken salad made with a free range cockerel;
"Solomillo al queso de Tresviso", a sirloin steak with Tresviso cheese;
"Lomos de venado con salsa de arándanos" being venison with blueberry sauce;


The restaurant has a special gluten free menu,.

If you want to make a cultural visit to the Cantabrian villages of this region, start off in the monastery of Santo Toribio de Liebana, followed by the church of Santa Maria and to the Infantado Tower in Potes.

In Autumn you will be able to attend the festivals of Potes, the Cross, the Cattle fair, or the Orujo (liqueur) Fair.

On July the 2nd, you have La Santuca and you can see the pilgrimage there.

Go walking, take a mountain bike, horse, 4 wheel drive vehicle or even go hang gliding to explore and enjoy the Picos de Europa (”Peaks of Europe”) mountains.

We recommend you to follow by foot the Cares route, going from Poncebos to Cain or take the cable car up to the Aliva viewpoint where you can enjoy an indescribable view of the Peaks bedroom in Parador of Fuente De.

A warning on the hiking by a previous guest:-
"There are poles behind door to room. If you are going to the top in the cable car TAKE them. Also water, snack, etc. We ended up walking from the top to Espinima — 6 hours with none of these. We did not realize how long or dangerous the last part was — 90 degrees down and gravel paths. I had a bad fall and there was no one out there to help had we needed it. Walk to the Refugio and back — a better bet. You’d think we would have known better but the beautiful day and fabulous surroundings tricked us."

We stayed for 1 night recently and enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant very much. Anchovies with roasted peppers, green salad starters, roasted lamb, and tea mousse were all so delicious.

Stayed just 1 night. Convenient facilities, large room and bath, amazing views, excellent breakfast but lousy dinner.

Stayed only 1 night but wish we would have had time for more. Excellent facilities and wonderful view out our back enclosed porch. Great breakfast too.

I stayed for 3 nights mid-September. And it will have been my last stay at a parador. (I tried several other paradores over several years.) The room was at the level of the street so that all cars going to/coming from the parking of the cable car blew their exhausts into the window and all pedestrians looked right in my room and on my bed. As the hotel was pretty empty this was certainly not necessary. Furthermore, the 'exceptional' location doesn't leave you with any choice for dinner if you don't want to drive to the next village. So I opted for half-board, expecting a nice choice of some local dishes and, certainly at this time of the year, venison. ... But ended up with a choice between three boring meat dishes (chicken, beef and veal) and two seafish dishes (from the deep-freezer. All three dishes I had were of mediocre quality and heavily over-priced. Service was worse than in a 1000-bed all-in hotel on the islands: Fixed times, all in a rush. In sum, the concept of the paradores doesn't pay anymore. They are not up to modern standards in terms of service and location alone doesn't do the trick. What a shame and waste of a great opportunity!
