This place is fantastic! The setting is lovely (if a bit hard to get to) and the surrounding area beautiful and full of interest. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. Most important, your hosts could not be nicer. The whole family — even the dog! — is warm and welcoming; we really felt at home. And our day out birding with Javier was wonderful; he’s generous with his time and his knowledge, and we saw, and learned, a lot: it was a real highlight of our trip.
The food was delicious, prepared with the same care and generosity displayed by other aspects of the inn. Our only quibble would be with the Spanish emphasis on large portions of meat and fish to the detriment of vegetables, and the late meal hours, which really don’t suit birding: I’d prefer to be outside at dusk. And, though breakfasts were ample & delicious, I found myself wishing that bread and cereal were simply left out with a toaster & coffee machine, so we could get an early start. But in fact, I wished for that every place we stayed in Spain; it’s just not how it’s done. Oh well, it’s a minor quibble. These people were wonderful and the place was terrific; we’d happily stay here again. Maybe someday we’ll be lucky enough to return.

This lovely place is everything it says it is in the description. Javier and Valvanera are perfect hosts and we left feeling sad that we were saying goodbye to real friends. Javier is highly knowledgeable about birds in general and his local birds in particular. I learned a lot. I loved this place and hope to return one day. Only a couple of hours from Burgos or Bilbao, fantastic countryside and many, many birds. Pleanty of parking, super accommodation and great food.

Unos dias maravillosos junto con Javier y Valvanera, mejor que en casa. Recomendado 100% para quienes les guste la naturaleza, estar en un entorno tranquilo y disfrutar de los pájaros. Las excursiones fántansticas, con las explicaciones de Jaiver, la comida excelente, el trato maravilloso. Aposté por ellos a ciegas y gané. Gracias por hacernos las vacaciones tan fantásticas.

When you spend a day birding with Javier you will encounter and truly remember every species you observe. Javier takes the time (and the equipment) to make the birds you encounter well identified. You will be provided a delicious lunch during the day and will return to the posada with many ‘life’ species to add to your life list. You will enjoy your entire stay (good beds, delicious meals served elegantly) and will plan to return for another time in another season to experience much more.
