- A delightful three star posada
A beautiful three star posada in the heart of the Picos de Europa
Our base in the Picos de Europa is the beautifully appointed Posada El Corcal. Run courteously and with unassuming efficiency by the Soberon family, El Corcal is 2kms from the small town of Potes, which itself is a delight.
El Corcal is in a charming rural setting in the hamlet of Tama alongside the road between Potes and Panes near the Picos National Park. It is less than 5 minutes in the car to Potes, but you can also walk there in 40 minutes along a riverside track.
You will be more than comfortable at El Corcal. It is immaculately presented throughout. Whilst modern inside, there are some delightfully rustic touches. All of its en suite bedrooms, most with balconies, have been individually decorated with exquisite taste. Bright colours and stylish furnishings characterise every room.
After a day in the mountains, relax in the lounge over a book and a drink, or wander through French windows into an attractive garden with furnished terraces. Or you can take time out in the hotel’s health spa, where there is a jacuzzi, sauna and small gym.
At the entrance of El Corcal’s driveway just 50 yards from the posada itself, there is a traditional Spanish taverna restaurant, Casa Fofi, which is also run by the Soberon family. Each evening (except Wednesday) we meet here to enjoy an excellent three course dinner (with wine included). A good breakfast is served everyday in El Corcal’s attractive breakfast room.

Wonderful hotel in peaceful place. Collett's hosts were really sound and made sure we had a great time. Walks were enjoyable, adequate for the heat, nothing difficult or technical. Area is very green, on the edge of the national park; to get into the higher mountains you need to take the Fuente Dé cable car or do your own thing.
