It is winter. Icy winds and lingering mists caress lethargic landscapes. The sun barely breaks through the sleeping dawn. And, sheltered by unique hearths, Paradores awaits its guests with special rooms brimming with warmth, tranquility, and hints of romance. Exclusive spaces for demanding tastes.
Cangas de Onís. A mid-afternoon coffee or a glass of wine as a prelude to a special dinner takes on a different meaning in front of the fireplace at the Cangas de Onis Parador. On its embers, the inhabitants of the San Pedro Villanueva Monastery used to cook daily. Today it is a charming corner, which admits exclusive reservations for a romantic dinner or to feed a good conversation.
Artíes. Watching the quiet dance of the snowflakes from the warm shelter offered by the fireplace of this Parador is an incredible experience. And if you add a warm pot of broth, the occasion becomes sublime. One of the coolest places in the Valle de Arán for après skiing, the Cuina de Portolá, the ideal place to recover your strength after a day of intense activity on the slopes of Baqueira Beret.
Jarandilla de la Vera. This 15th-century medieval castle-palace zealously guards the exploits of famous historical deeds in Jarandilla de la Vera. The Emperor’s Lounge and the flames of its great mantle warm the long winter evenings. The atmosphere exudes tranquility, only disturbed by the anxiety aroused by such succulent specialties as Extremadura crumbs, revolconas potatoes, lamb stew, or cinnamon milk capers.
Cañadas del Teide. Sometimes a beautiful picture is worth an escape on its own. Can you imagine the pleasure of seeing the summit of Mount Teide surrounded by a blanket of snow, while the heat of the Parador de Cañadas del Teide chimney caresses you? Before your eyes, a National Park with views that will leave you speechless. And, at your feet, the exquisite and original Canarian cuisine, which offers dishes such as rabbit with salmorejo, wrinkled potatoes with mojos, Canary Island stew and tasty fish from the Islands.
Segovia. Just a breath away from Madrid awaits a perfect combination: the endless fire of the Fireplace Hall and the excellent gastronomy of the Parador de Segovia. Its exceptional location offers unbeatable views of the city while enjoying a delicious roast suckling pig, the star dish of a welcoming and modern establishment with the best of Castilian cuisine.
