We immediately felt at home when we were welcomed with open arms by Abel and his wonderful parents Ramón and Ana. Ramón insisted on carrying our very heavy luggage down the hill and into the house for us, before showing us around the gorgeous little house and offering us all the help we could need - from dining to the rather uncommon request of Spanish fishing licenses, which we were keen to acquire.
The house itself is typical of such a small Spanish village - not very wide, but four stories high. It has a kitchen, laundry, two bedrooms with double beds and a living room with TV which could double as another bedroom as needed. Facilities were all good, and they even provided us with a bowl of local fruit on check in.
The small town of Laspuña is located quite high in the Spanish Pyrenees, and the scenery is nothing short of stunning. Snow capped peaks tower on the horizon, while the temperature hovers around 30 Celsius in the summer months.
There's no shortage of historic towns and stunning wilderness to explore, with both medieval villages and unspoiled national parks on their doorstep.
The food was an undoubted highlight, with restaurant Casa Sidora only fifty metres down hill. Their rustic, homestyle cooking was the best we found in Europe, and we ended up dining their for three consecutive days. The quality and value was incredible.
Overall, I'd highly recommend Abel's charming property to anyone wanting to experience the best which the Aragon region has to offer, all at a bargain price point.
Thanks Abel, Ramón and Ana!
