Casona de la Paca is a large Spanish-American house built at the end of the XIXth Century by José Martinez, an eccentric man from Cudillero who having made a fortune in Cuba returned to his roots full of memories of the new world. With the riches obtained and the homesickness accumulated he built with pride a stately home, full of crossed memories: neoclassical architecture, exotic vegetation and rich people’s manners in poor man’s land. The house has been through complete restoration. Today La Casona de la Paca is a welcoming hotel, the restoration done on it has left the Spanish-American spirit of the house intact, but has adapted it to the new needs and with the comforts we expect from a hotel with charm. The common areas, as are the main drawing room with a fire place, library and a small bar or the breakfast room which turns into a meeting room, or a space for playing games or reading, are our favourite corners. The new summer drawing room, a totally glassed in gallery, also turns into a privileged meeting room with views over the garden. The silence, the singing of the birds and the aromas from the garden change with the seasons in this hotel which nearly peers out onto Cudilleros´ port which we can go down to, on a pleasant walk. In the garden there are also some two storey apartments integrated in the surrounding landscape and very well equipped. This is an extra sensorial hotel, a coastal refuge sheltered from the buffeting of the Cantabrian Sea.
