The Space

Price of habitacion double 35€, habitacion individual 25€, extra bed 10€.
Casa Druna is located in one of Spain's most unpopulated regions. Surrounded by lush beech and oak tree forests and vegetation unique to the north of Spain. At only 3km. you can bathe in the Ebro Reservoir and sunbathe on its sandy beaches. This reservoir is a stop for all kinds of birds on their way to Africa from the North of Europe. A must see spectacle.

In the forests, around the reservoir and in the surrounding areas you might bump into roe deer, wild boar, otter, fox, woodpeckers, kites, owls, wolves (very unlikely), and will see packs of horses and cattle.

Autumn is the mushroom season! You can find a wide variety of edible mushrooms.

Las Merindades geography is composed of lakes, waterfalls, caves, historical and natural monuments, including prehistoric sites, paintings and Roman and Romanesque villas.

For the active minded, there are lots of opportunities to inmerse in any of the water sports offered by local companies. Those include, kayaking, canoeing, kite surfing, rafting, sailing, windsurfing, etc.

The closest airports are Santander International Airport (80km), Burgos International Airport (100km) and Bilbao International Airport (130km.).

  • An amazing place to stay- Marta was so nice and helpful (she gave us lifts to and from the bus stop and lent us her bikes to cycle everyday) the house is really nice and the landscape is breathtaking. I would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone.

  • It was an incredible B&B for starting an adventure in a well-hidden corner of Spain. The house itself was flawless; a 100-year-old rural home with the perfect pairing of vintage charm and clean, modern (and hot) showers. Sat in a town of 70 people, we were surrounded by horses, hens, and never-ending hills.
    The best part of our stay was Marta's recommendations of nearby sites (best if you have a car, or energy to bike great distances). There were breathtaking waterfalls connected to swimming lagoons (with cliff jumping too), one of the world's largest caves, bucolic hiking trails, and crystal-clear lakes -- all within a 40-minute drive through jaw-droppingly gorgeous landscape and medieval towns with populations in the single to double digits.
    We can't recommend the place enough!

  • Marta was very warm and helpful during our stay. She was around enough to help us our (she even loaned us a power cord for our camera when we brought the wrong one) but I never felt like I was in her way or in her space. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. She had lots of suggestions for things to do in the area and we really enjoyed everything she told us about. One word of advice: make sure you know where this place is, because our map didn't have the town on it. Luckily everyone in the little towns in the area did know where it was and were very helpful.

MARTA ( Norte de Burgos ) Santa Gadea de Alfoz Desde adolescente me inquietaba el comportamiento de los demás seres animales por lo que comencé a interesarme por la etologia, la zoología evolutiva y la psicología . A los 18 años me fui a estudiar a la Facultad de Veterinaria de León también aquí seguí jugando a baloncesto . Me gradué como Veterinaria especialista en Producción Animal , justamente estudié esta especialidad por ser la que menos me gustaba pero la que mas me preocupaba. Hice cursos y asistí a varios congresos sobre cetáceos , pero decidí trabajar en tierra firme . He pasado 10 años trabajando como veterinaria clínica rural para ganadería extensiva de vacuno y equino. Con estos años de experiencia y tras dar a luz a mi hija Sofia en 2005 , decidí hacer lo que siempre quise, luchar por la defensa y libertad de los demás animales no humanos . Junto con otros compañeros de profesión hemos creado la primera asociación del mundo de veterinarios abolicionistas de la tauromaquia (AVAT). MARTA (Norte de Burgos) Santa Gadea of Alfoz From adolescent behavior bothered me other living animals so I became interested in ethology, zoology and evolutionary psychology. At 18 I went to study at the Faculty of Veterinary Leon also kept playing basketball here. I graduated as a Veterinary Specialist in Animal Production, just studied this specialty because it's my least favorite but the one I was worried. I attended several courses and conferences on cetaceans, but I decided to work on the mainland. I spent 10 years working as a veterinary clinic for rural ranching cattle and horses. With years of experience and after giving birth to my daughter Sofia in 2005, I decided to do what I always wanted, to fight for the defense and freedom of other nonhuman animals. Along with other colleagues have created the world's first association of veterinarians abolitionists of bullfighting (AVAT).
