The hotel rises amidst the lush forest of La Zoreda, where oak, birch, beech, chestnut, and hazel trees create an idyllic setting. Wild boars, foxes, and deer roam freely among the vegetation. The building, which dates from 1930, was once the residence of the Figaredo family, a noteworthy group of financiers. In 2009, this five-star accommodation was restored, with love and care, and turned into one of the best hotels in the Principality of Asturias.With a total area of more than 30 acres of woodland, the hotel boasts 25 rooms, spa, and a superb restaurant. There is also a large banquet hall with a capacity for 1,200 guests, perfect to celebrate weddings, family reunions, and corporate events. Its spacious rooms and suites combine contemporary decor with pieces from the 1930s, and all come with luxurious Bulgari products.
The stylish suite El Torreon is, without a doubt, the best. With over 1,700 square feet distributed over three floors, and a private elevator, it has a large living room, dining room for six guests and a splendid bedroom with stunning forest views. On the top floor, next to the tower´s battlements, there is a private Jacuzzi on the terrace to delight guests.
The hotel has a magnificent spa where guests can enjoy relaxing and revitalizing treatments, with citrus aromas of tangerine, orange, and lemon, as well as body massages and facials with mud and salts.
