    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Amid the scenic alpine landscapes of the Liébana Valley in Cantabria, Parador de Fuente Dé occupies a contemporary mountain lodge dwarfed by the oversized scenery. A comfortable three star hotel in a dramatic setting, it promises to immerse guests in the impressive natural environment of the Picos de Europa National Park and facilitate an array active and adventure pursuits. The famed cableway to the Aliva viewpoint departs from the surrounding lawns, giving you direct access to stunning panoramas nearby. An angular arrangement in the foothills, the hotel’s contemporary – though not modern – architecture is at odds with the natural setting. Meanwhile, interiors offer all the warmth of an alpine lodge, so that guests can feel totally at home, while broad windows allow picturesque views to remain within sight. There is ample room for relaxation at the end of a demanding day’s wanderings, with fireside warmth supplied to lounges complete with deep armchairs. In the warmer months, you can take a snack or beverage on an external terrace overlooking the lawns. A children’s playground is available here for the younger members of the family to play. Guestrooms continue the contemporary alpine lodge theme, with wooden floorboards underfoot and dramatic views from your own personal balcony. Upon an evening, hearty meals are served up at Restaurant Alfonso XIII, where you can sample Cantabrian favourites that exploit mountain ingredients in home cooked dishes. Meanwhile, the bar service is the perfect antidote to the end-of-the-day fatigue, allowing you to warm your bones.
