Hotel Fuentes de Lucia is located 5 kilometers from the small lake of Valdemurio, where you can paddle on a kayak, spend the afternoon on the shores with a fishing pole or take a quick dip on a sunny summer day. In the next valley over, walk through the mystical canyon of Las Xanas to Pedrobeyo for a hearty lunch of Fabada, a typical Asturian white bean and chorizo stew. The Inn can accommodate 16 people in 8 rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, and either a balcony or terrace. It is perfect for your next family reunion, birthday, anniversary party, retreat or just an excuse to escape to a mountain haven for a while.

We begin the day with an early morning yoga practice followed by a hearty breakfast in the main dining room, formerly a mill, before the day's hiking adventure unfolds. We walk beautiful mountain trails, averaging approximately 15 kilometers per day, accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides who will fill our days with a soulful blend of scenic hiking, historical insights, traditional experiences and wonderful food.

We also savor local Asturian cuisine, sample aromatic cheeses and sip the traditional beverage, Sidra Asturianu, a cider made from locally grown apples. Besides that, we also trek through scenic gorges and alongside babbling brooks; dine in local taverns; explore 10th-century churches and relax under Spain’s oldest yew tree, El Tiexo, planted more than 1000 years ago in a sacred meadow.

Late in the afternoon, we journey deep into yoga's restorative practice to rejuvenate our trekking legs before enjoying lovely home-cooked dinners prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia.

Nestled in Quiros Valley, the casa rural is surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges and crystal clear rivers, and ancient forests, a paradise for those who love the great outdoors. An intricate system of marked footpaths leads you from one small village to the next; up and over mountain passes; and through river valleys. Our guides are able to take our guests through our magnificent landscape via well trodden pathways visiting remote villages where life unchanged, continues much as it always has.

Close by is the Senda del Oso, a 30 kilometer trail from Barzana de Quiros to Trubia, which runs through these valleys following the track of an old railway line once used for transporting coal and iron ore. Taking a leisurely stroll along is a wonderful way for individuals, couples or families to spend the day whether by bike or on foot.

    "I had a wonderful week at this very rustic yet sophisticated B&B. I was part of a yoga/hiking retreat and every day was well-planned and the staff was eager to please, informative and flexible. I had a private room and bath with a terrace and everything was spotlessly clean, room was spacious and the views were spectacular.Breakfast and dinner were included and the flood was always well-prepared, fresh, simple and delicious. We had a few folks in our group with special food requests (vegetarian, gluten-free) and they were always accommodated.A pleasant surprise was our hiking guide, Camillo, who added so much local, cultural history to our walks, It made every day a new adventure."

    "I wanted to thank you for hosting such a wonderful trip. There is nothing I would have changed. I LOVED all the surprises you had for us. Camilo was great, could not ask for a better guide. It was fun to have a "celebrity" lead us. The paths you picked for us were amazing. The gorge was a treat and the biggest surprise. Cooking classes were fun, your renovation turned out great, food yummy and the weather...how did you plan that?"

    "Thank you again for a wonderful Camino experience. I will remember this trip for years to come, and I have to say Im a bit sad its over and we have to return to our daily lives. The walking was a challenge at times, but I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. We have nothing but praise for Lu, Guillermo, and Spanish Steps! Your expertise, good humor, kindness, and stamina are the stuff of legend."

    "Dear Judy, I wanted to write to say thank you for a really fantastic time at the yoga retreat I just experienced. Fuentes de Lucia is a very special place. You and Juan-Carlos have created a fantastic destination in a beautiful setting. The food is pretty great too! Lu and Pablo were both truly fantastic on the tour. They were very patient and went far beyond the call of duty to accommodate everyone in the groups wishes. The process of booking and the transfer were very smooth, too: impressive given that I booked so last minute! Thanks for a wonderful experience. Best wishes"
