What's included

Accommodation

Enchanting Holiday Accommodation

It is our pleasure to introduce you to the wonderful hosts of two delightfully unique hotels: José Luis and Jennifer of “El Acebo de Casa Muria” and Gustavo and Josse of “Hotel Barosse”. Their warm Spanish hospitality and charming hotels will leave you with an unforgettable night’s stay. From the moment you step inside, every aspect of their accommodations exudes tasteful attention to detail in an atmosphere that is like a home away from home.

Their type of accommodation is referred to as an “author’s hotel” in that it is designed to create a haven of comfort from its exquisite aromas and original décor to its scrumptious breakfasts.

El Acebo de Casa Muria

El Acebo de Casa Muria is made up of 4 houses that are huddled together on a green mountain slope in the shadow of a giant centenary holly tree and a lush forest beyond that.

Within the home, José Luis and Jennifer pay homage to the world’s most iconic mountains and their respective cultures: the Toubkal Room, which is Moroccan inspired; the Posets Room with Pyrenean décor, and; the Fuji Room with a Japanese zen-inspired atmosphere. The rooms are all very pleasant, contemporary-ethnic décor done with meticulous detail and beautiful taste.

Hotel Barosse

Under the benevolent gaze of Peña Oroel in the idyllic village of Barós, a mere 2 kilometres from Jaca, lies Barosse. It is a perfect choice regardless of the time of the year. The pilgrimage route to Santiago winds through these lands along the banks of the Aragón River where unique, Romanesque, historical jewels merge serenely with forests, rivers, and green meadows. Barosse Hotel (formerly called “Barós”) was built from stones rescued from the ruins of an abandoned house in Paternoy. Now, visitors can see this historic structure in the full splendour of a second youth.
