The rendezvous with a very welcoming Vidal was completely problem-free and the house is delightful and spotlessly clean. Mind your head on some low beams! The house is peaceful and an ideal location for a variety of walking. Sit in the sun by the front door like the neighbours after the hike. The last 200m access by car can be tricky; if not confident maybe leave the car in the village main street and walk up. Our first visit to the Picos and Sotres, greatly enjoyed Casa Pedro, sure we'll be back one day. Muchas gracias Vidal!
We had a great time in Sotres, staying at Casa Pedro. Vidal was very helpful when we were planning our visit, and also while we were there, answering questions promptly via email - he lives elsewhere. The village is beautiful and perfectly situated if you want to walk the mountains. We fell in love with the place. Fifty metres down the road is the Restaurante Casa "La Gallega". There you will find Ana, great hospitality and some lovely wooden spoons made by 88-year-old Pedro, of Casa Pedro. He is Vidal's grandfather.
Location, location, location! We took walks around the area, including a 16km hike in the Picos de Europa, every day. The apartment's well equipped and we prepared several meals here (tip: If you're planning to cook, be sure to stock up on groceries before arriving in Sotres). The skylight in the bathroom/toilet was a nice touch.
Tip for drivers: If you're planning to drive to Sotres - the journey here is amazing, by the way - it might be easier to leave the car in the parking lot in the village centre and walk a few minutes up to the house as the roads are very narrow.
Very nice and remove mountains city. Very cozy village house with good location for hikeing in the mountains. We miss a tarrasse to set outside.
Cette maison en pleine montagne est un vrai plaisir. La vue est magnifique. La maison a les commodités nécessaires. Décoration digne d'un chalet. Accueil cordial de Vidal qui avait tout prévu pour répondre au mieux à nos questions. Le village de Sotres est tres joli et c'est une bonne base pour randonner.
Stay in this house in the middle of the mountains is a true pleasure. The view is great. The house is fully furnished. Warm welcome from Vidal who had prepared everything to answer to our questions. The village of Sotres is very pretty and is a good start for trekking around.
He estado una semana con mis hijos y hemos estado muy a gusto. La casa está perfectamente equipada y cuidada.Perfecta para ir en verano. Si te apetece hacer la ruta del Cares o ir al Naranjo de Bulnes, es tu casa!!. Muy bien situada para disfrutar de Picos de Europa. Eso sí, los once kilómetros de subida a Sotres no son aptos para niños que se mareen!!
This is a beautiful village high in the mountains of the Picos de Europa. The cottage is comfortable and has a really authentic feel. We didn't want to leave it at all. The village is beautiful with its tiny narrow and steep streets. There are a number of good places to eat here and you must try the specialties of the area. Fabada and Cabrito. Sortes is ideally located for those wanting to hike the Picos with a variety of different to pick up from the village.
The town of Arenas de Cabrales is a 30min drive down the mountain roads with stunning views around each corner. We fell in love with the area and this house.
Vidal was very helpful and I would highly recommend this to everyone. It was fabulous.
Casa Pedro is a gorgeous house surrounded by what must be some of the most spectacular countryside in the world. The view from the bedroom window is breathtaking. The village is idillic and locals are very welcoming. Our two boys loved the whole experience, especially the home delivered bread and the amazing walks through the mountains. We wish we had booked to stay longer than three days. Vidal was very friendly and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy this remarkable area.
We spent three nights at this super cool house in Sotres and loved the place. The house has a lot of charm and is very comfortable. Although there are several bars in town we enjoyed cooking at home and found everything we needed there (not the food, obviously, haha). The views are spectacular and the location perfect.
Vidal was a very kind and helpful host. He gave us very good directions to arrive and was very nice about everything.
Thanks a lot, Vidal!
My husband Ben and I had a lovely stay at Casa Pedro! Vidal was a very friendly and helpful host, and was most patient when we were very late to the house. The house itself is incredibly clean and well equipped, and has fantastic views of the Picos. We had long walks in the mountains and enjoyed the local cuisine (the Cabritu at Hotel Sotres was excellent, but I would recommend sharing as the portions are very large!). We would definitely recommend Casa Pedro for anyone wanting a vacation in the Picos!
