Hotel Tierra de la Reina


Located on the edge of the picturesque village of Boca de Huérgano, this is a small and simple but cosy and authentic rural guesthouse with plenty of atmosphere. All rooms have private bathrooms and a satellite TV. Facilities at the hotel include a restaurant serving local cuisine with three courses for lunch and dinner (set menu with vegetarian options). Please note that breakfasts generally consist of fresh toast and condiments, plus cakes, juices and tea and coffee only. The hotel is located on the edge of the sleepy village which is very pleasant to stroll around and there is a local bakery with biscuits and pastries to enjoy. The hotel is the best base for wildlife watching excursions within the surrounding Riaño mountain range and wildcats are often spotted in the fields close by. Please note that English is not widely spoken at the hotel.

Local Wildlife

Europe's highest density of wildcats can be found close by. The remote hills of Riaño are also home to one of the highest densities of Iberian wolf in the country. Local guides regularly monitor their movements and den sites giving excellent opportunities for sightings. There are also good numbers of red and roe deer, wild boar, broom hares, chamois, otters, red squirrels, and a small population of brown bears in the region. The birdlife is also impressive with black and middle-spotted woodpeckers, white storks, dippers, goshawks, honey buzzards, golden eagles and griffon and Egyptian vultures.

Optional Activities

Wildlife watching and photography and walking.
