Here is a 16th century Asturian mansion complete with its own tower, chapel and surrounding wall. It sits in grounds of 18,000 sq m, in a commanding position looking out at the Picos de Europa, the Sierra del Sueve and the valley of the River Piloña.
Unlike most country houses of this age, the Palacio de Cutre still stands in splendid isolation more than 2 km from its nearest neighbour. The resulting tranquility is as impressive as it is overwhelming.
All of the decoration, rich and ornate but with a touch of country style, has been carefully preserved, so that in one corner you may find an 18th century cot once used for the daughter of the family of the house, while in another you will come across a grand Louis XV cabinet containing a collection of Victorian porcelain dolls. There are several lounges, one converted from the original kitchen and still complete with a solid stone sink. Outside, the terrace and gardens have magnificent views of the Picos de Europa.
Each of the guestrooms is distinctively different and very well-equipped. The Superior rooms and Suites have an internet connection, minibar and a large TV with CD and DVD. The Suites also have hydro-massage baths.
For active visitors, the mountains of Asturias are one vast playground with room for everyone. There are some absolutely stunning hiking routes, well marked and documented.
The Asturian mountains are one of the last remaining wildernesses in Europe, where even bears still live in the wild. (Don't worry, there are no bears roaming in the grounds of the hotel, so far as we know.) You can enjoy the splendid remoteness by day and return to the unashamed luxury of the Palacio de Cutre each night.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|"Just to say many thanks for putting us in touch with the hotel we stayed at. Your service was good and we throughly enjoyed our time.|
I would recommend Northern Spain to any one that loves to walk."
|"We stayed in the Hotel Palacio de Cutre for one night only unfortunately, on our way back from Portugal to the ferry terminal of Santander.|
The hotel is fantastic - the grounds and views were fabulous. We sat outside admiring the view with a glass of wine - a perfect way spend an hour or two. The food in the restaurant was excellent too, infact, there was nothing disagreeable apart from the fact that we were only stopping one night!"
|"Had a great time in Asturias and the hotel was wonderful.|
Was a little surprised that we had trouble booking as only us and three other people there !!!.
Will certainly consider using you again as inclined to head further west towards A Coruna."
|"Palacio de Cutre was the first stop in our recent trip to Northern Spain. We chose it because it was near the Picos de Europa and it looked very nice. I have to say that the photos we'd seen didn't do it justice.|
The hotel itself is beautiful as is the location. We stayed in "La Cala" which is a superior room and one of the nicest we've stayed in, albeit a little small.
The thing that really made the stay special was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was set up for the benefit of the guests. This meant that breakfast went on until 1130 hrs and the restaurant was open for lunch/dinner from then on right through until 2300 hrs.
The food was plentiful and very good, so much so that we ate pretty well all our meals there. This was also due to the fact that the hotel is relatively isolated.
It was also very good value for money. We would certainly recommend it."
