This modern mountain refuge is located in the foothills of the Picos de Europa and looking out at the fertile Liebana valley. It is surrounded by woodlands and hillsides in a region of small hamlets.

The building is at the bottom of the cable car which travels up to the Aliva viewpoint. Look down into the valley and see the Parador® of Fuente De in the middle.
restaurant at Parador Fuente De
The classical mountain style decoration of warm wood and leather furniture recreate the so appreciated warmth of home.

Taste the traditional Cantabrian cuisine in the hotel restaurant such as:
"Cocido lebaniego" which is a local stew of the Liebana valley;
"Ensalada de gallo de corral" which is a chicken salad made with a free range cockerel;
"Solomillo al queso de Tresviso", a sirloin steak with Tresviso cheese;
"Lomos de venado con salsa de arándanos" being venison with blueberry sauce;

The restaurant has a special gluten free menu,.

If you want to make a cultural visit to the Cantabrian villages of this region, start off in the monastery of Santo Toribio de Liebana, followed by the church of Santa Maria and to the Infantado Tower in Potes.

Other interesting religious buildings are the monastery of Piasca and the pre-Roman church of Lebena.

In Autumn you will be able to attend the festivals of Potes, the Cross, the Cattle fair, or the Orujo (liqueur) Fair.

On July the 2nd, you have La Santuca and you can see the pilgrimage there.

Go walking, take a mountain bike, horse, 4 wheel drive vehicle or even go hang gliding to explore and enjoy the Picos de Europa (”Peaks of Europe”) mountains.

We recommend you to follow by foot the Cares route, going from Poncebos to Cain or take the cable car up to the Aliva viewpoint where you can enjoy an indescribable view of the Peaks bedroom in Parador of Fuente De.

A warning on the hiking by a previous guest:-
"There are poles behind door to room. If you are going to the top in the cable car TAKE them. Also water, snack, etc. We ended up walking from the top to Espinima — 6 hours with none of these. We did not realize how long or dangerous the last part was — 90 degrees down and gravel paths. I had a bad fall and there was no one out there to help had we needed it. Walk to the Refugio and back — a better bet. You’d think we would have known better but the beautiful day and fabulous surroundings tricked us."

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September. It's about 12k outside the town. It's a superb location in the Pecos area. Simply beautiful place. Mountains ,deep valleys, tumbling rivers,unspoilt villages, great roads. Walking cycling motoring brilliant place The hotel is at the end of a road in a superb valley. There are a host of camping sites alongside the river. Next to the hotel is the base station for the cable car that takes up to the ridge where there is simply breathtaking panoramas and there are a cross cross of long distance foot and cycle paths . And there's a cafe. The hotel is big and spacious, plenty of relaxing lounges. The rooms are again spacious and well equipped. The beds large and relaxing. I cant imagine that there is a room without a superb view. Front desk service was good. The small bar was poorly staffed. No one seemed to be responsible, any staff member who came through needed to be collared into providing service, without great enthusiasm. Breakfast was unmemorable . Dinner?.Reasonable value. Not bad,occasionally good for individual elements, just lacking pazazz or any serving style , friendly, just not gourmet, exciting or stylish. It just seemed understaffed and staff morale is suffering because of it. It felt a bit 1960s English country house, with unadventurous Spanish food. Would I stay there again? Yes yes yes. And I'd eat in Fuentes De and get taxis.

We stayed for 1 night recently and enjoyed our dinner at the restaurant very much. Anchovies with roasted peppers, green salad starters, roasted lamb, and tea mousse were all so delicious.

Stayed just 1 night. Convenient facilities, large room and bath, amazing views, excellent breakfast but lousy dinner.

Stayed only 1 night but wish we would have had time for more. Excellent facilities and wonderful view out our back enclosed porch. Great breakfast too.

The Parador® de Fuente De is in the Picos de Europa with mountain cable car nearby.
