In Bierge, by the Sierra de Guara which is universally recognised due to the canyon descents, we find this small family hotel which pampers its guests. From the new building, complete with a swimming pool and recognised restaurant, the Hostería has become a favoured location for bird lovers and a place for people who enjoy both sport and silence. The hotel is surrounded by arable land, with views of village and mountain range. The rooms are luminous, with big windows and the care of the three sisters who manage it is apparent throughout. During the summer months the terrace overlooking the garden and the swimming pool are a favoured area. In the winter months, the drawing room, small reading room or the fireside sofas are equally enticing. On cold days the restaurant and coffee shop fire places provide cosy retreats. Rosa, Ana and Eva, know that post dinning conversation can go into the small hours of the morning and they boast the cultivation of returning clients, whilst enjoying an after diner drink of perhaps a chess game. In summer, the olive garden which surrounds the swimming pool provides coolness and shade, which allows us to forget that we came here to explore the most recognised Sierra of the Aragonese Pyrenees.
The hotel has wheel chair accessible room. It also has Brail and raised signage in certain areas of the hotel.
Canyon descents, bicycles, trekking, bird watching, visits to wine cellars and oil pressing sites.
