The Posada el Corcal de Liébana nestles beneath the beautiful Picos mountains and provides guests with the warmest of welcomes and Spanish hospitality.  The rooms are clean and comfortable with flower filled balconies and provide all you need for a relaxing stay in this area.  Breakfast is served in a prettily decorated dining room and a wide choice of freshly baked temptations are offered alongside the usual continental breakfast choices.  Every effort is made to make you feel at home, including a stack of Yorkshire tea bags and tea pots specially provided with English guests in mind.  Dinner is available at the Restaurant Casa Fofi located a short walk away.  If you are looking for a top quality gourmet experience, then you will not find it here, but you will certainly not leave hungry.  Colletts arrange a set menu with three choices for each course and including free flowing local red and white wines.  The restaurant also offers an a la carte menu if you are travelling independently.  There are also spa facilities on site which I didn’t have time to try out.  There are other options in Picos (a 5 – 7 euro taxi ride away – around 40 minutes walk) if you want some variety during your stay.  Casa Cayo (www.casacayo.com) offers a hearty Spanish menu and also accommodation if you would rather base yourself in the centre of town.
