El Gran Sueño
, Caspio la Vega, Caspio la Vega, Pintueles.
El Gran Sueño (The Big Dream) was the "big dream" for Dave and Javier, but they weren't content to dream: they went out and made it a reality. For anyone wanting to slow down and dream, El Gran Sueño is a perfect grown-ups-only Bed & Breakfast in the hills and mountains of Asturias.
A traditional village house that had seen better days has been brought back to life, renovated and endowed with modern conveniences and style yet retaining all the character of an Asturian house. There is a large garden where guests are invited to relax and recharge. High-speed wi-fi extends throughout the house and there is underfloor heating from a ground-source heat pump (reflecting an overall commitment to clean-living and sustainability).
The guest rooms are large and comfortable, each one with a sitting area. The furniture varies from antique to contemporary but is all of great quality. This quality shines through too in the beds and bed linens which assure a comfortable night's sleep.
El Gran Sueño is perfectly placed in rolling green hills, with the Picos de Europa mountains on one side and the rugged cliffs and long beaches of the Asturias coast on the other. Javier has prepared mapped walking routes for guests straight from the hamlet of Caspio la Vega, while guests with a guide book will quickly realise the huge choice of walking, cycling and driving routes that are all around them. The town of Infiesto is just a ten minute drive away where there is a wealth of bars and restaurants.
An organic breakfast is served daily, with seasonal fruit, freshly baked bread, cakes and biscuits, home-made jam and local cheese.
Evening meals are available on request, only for guests. A three course meal is lovingly prepared with organic ingredients sourced from local suppliers. Relax, take your time and enjoy fresh, healthy food in an unhurried atmosphere. Vegetarian, vegan and special diets are catered for if required.
If you're planning a day trip, Dave's lunchboxes will keep you sustained with a variety of baguettes, pastries, cakes and goodies.

|We used El Gran Sueu00f1o as a base for exploring Asturias. At the end of each day we were struck by the marvel of the hotel as we returned. It lacks for nothing and is beautifully decorated. The breakfasts are stupendous, and the dinners... wonderful! And all prepared with tasty organic ingredients.
