- Karen Brown's Recommendation:
Gregorio Sánchez and his family moved from Madrid to Asturias where they totally renovated his family home and turned it into a small hotel—an awesome task that took two years to accomplish. The result is an absolute gem. From Panes, you wind up a narrow road, past cows grazing in the fields, to the very top of a hill where suddenly you come upon a tiny, remote village—no more than a cluster of houses, surrounded by the magnificent, natural landscapes of the Picos de Europa. The prettiest of these homes is La Casona de Alevia, an appealing, 17th-century stone farmhouse. Inside, loving care is shown in every detail and a cozy warmth exudes from every room. The renovation was accomplished with great skill, installing all the modern amenities to make a stay here one of absolute comfort, yet meticulously retaining the original rustic appeal and authentic architectural details. Downstairs are two lounges, one a comfortable parlor with a fireplace and the other a library/games room. Antiques abound, including a display on the walls of antique, handmade chestnut-farming implements. A central open staircase with a skylight above leads up to the nine guestrooms, each individually decorated with an abundance of family antiques and exquisite antique lace at the windows.
