El Gran Sueño

Pintueles, Asturias
Bed & Breakfast

4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2



Be lazy and start your day as late as 11 if you like with freshly-squeezed Valencia orange juice (in season), freshly baked bread made with organic Spanish flours, homemade jams and artisan cheese from the local cheesemonger – your super easy hosts, Dave and Javier, are passionate about food and giving you a wonderful holiday. You’re in a pretty perfect spot too in a rustic charming hamlet at the top of a twisting road. The views are magical, the restoration sustainable and the styling is an exceptional mix of old and new. You can birdwatch, climb, cycle, raft and hike in the snow-capped Asturias mountains, head off with a picnic for a day at the seaside, or just sit quietly and read. Either way you’ll return to a restorative slice, or two, of wonderful homemade cakes – biscuits too – and then it’s up to gorgeous bedroom suites in warm whites and greys, one with a splendid private terrace overlooking the gardens, all with Juliet balconies and mountain views. Bathrooms are spoiling too with Spanish lotions and potions. You have shops and restaurants in Infiesto just a short drive away – but why go out?

This region of Spain is special. When you reach 'El gran sueño' it's breathtaking. Rooms are beautiful and stylish, very comfortable beds and spotless bathrooms. Breakfast in the quirky dining room or out on the patio with an amazing view of the 'picos de europa' what more can you ask for apart from the homemade sourdough and a different flavour jam and cheese everyday. Then a stunning 3 course meal in the evening, all locally produced and sourced, then cooked by Dave. The attention to detail by both hosts was second to none. Constantly perfecting their art. We felt like we'd visited friends.

Just back from 3.5 weeks in Portugal and Northern Spain and El Gran Sueno was one of the highlights of the trip! After several days in the hustle and bustle of Lisbon and Porto it was so nice to relax and recharge at El Gran Sueno.  It is located in a small hamlet that can be a bit challenging to find, but well worth the drive. Beautiful location and wonderful service from Dave and Javier, who both truly enjoy having guests. We stayed two nights in the Galeria room with large windows overlooking the countryside. The attention to design was very apparent, with the Pantone color swatches for

Simply the best! It is located in a small hamlet that can be a bit challenging to find, but well worth the drive. Beautiful location and wonderful service from Dave and Javier, who both truly enjoy having guests. The attention to design throughout the guesthouse was exceptional. Large bathroom with a wonderful shower and nice bath products. We were fortunate to enjoy two excellent dinners prepared by Dave and elegantly served by Javier. Breakfast was also very nice with homemade breads, cakes, jams, delicious local cheeses and a different artistically arranged fruit plate each morning!

Brenda, California

This is a very special place - quiet, beautiful and comfortable. Dave and Javier go out of their way to make their guests feel very welcome and at home. Javier has a wealth of knowledge about the area and can offer great suggestions for visiting lesser known places. Breakfasts and dinners are delicious, Dave is an excellent and knowledgeable chef who sources locally produced ingredients. Thank you Dave and Javier - your gran sueno is one of the best and memorable B&Bs in which we have ever stayed.

Carol, Colchester

We loved it so much we stayed an extra night - charming knowledgeable hosts, lovely rooms, stunning views of the Picos de Europe, incredibly peaceful, 3/4 hours drive to mountains, beaches or cities (Oviedo & Gijon) good local hill walks and best of all delicious food - we ate in three nights out of four - and not forgetting the dog Carson!!

Liz, Dorchester

A truly special place.... the house is a beautiful and eclectic mix of vintage and modern style. Every piece of furniture is carefully chosen or restored. There are quirky artworks on the soft grey walls and breath-taking views of the mountains from every window. Comfort and luxury are at a premium, from the thoughtfully provided fluffy robes in the guest bathrooms, to the Bose speakers in the room, enormous comfortable beds, anti-mist mirrors, the complimentary bottle of wine ... I could go on forever ! The garden is wonderful, Dave's meals are mouth-watering and the owner are pure gentlemen!

Louise, Kildare

El Gran Sueño is indeed a special place to stay. The views alone are worth the journey but when you combine them with the stunning decor, charming and knowledgable hosts and delicious, organic food, this really becomes the perfect destination in a truly beautiful region. Top quality accommodation which provides a relaxing atmosphere, free of pretension but with every need anticipated - what more could you ask for! Highly recommended.

Emma, Lytham

We loved it here. The location is perfect with spectacular views to wake up to or just enjoy during the day and over a wonderful leisurely meal. The breakfasts and dinners are sensational and the room very comfortable for a great nights sleep. Dave and Javier were great all week and made sure we had any information or suggestions that would help us get the most out of this beautiful part of the world. Without doubt a place we will return to.

Howard, Market harborough

We loved El Gran Sueno; a wonderful place to stay! The bedrooms are spacious, with large beds, top quality bed linen and all modern comforts. The bathrooms are very special with high class fittings and lovely toiletries. The whole house has been decorated beautifully and with great sympathy, the outside space is large with wonderful views of the Picos mountains. Nothing is too much trouble for Dave and Javier, they are truly gracious hosts and great company, (Carson too!!)! The food, both breakfast and dinner was sublime. This is a very special place and we will definitely return.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Dave Haxby

  • Pintueles is a walker´s paradise and a typical Asturian village, with an 18th century church, a proud collection of hórreos, and home to the El Sidrón nature reserve. Stroll through forests, spot wild boar or deer, soaring eagles and wild flowers.
  • Asturian gastronomy is famed throughout Spain for its quality. Sample authentic foods in the collection of traditional sidrerías and chigres or treat your palate to the real deal in one of the 1 or 2-star Michelin restaurants close by.
  • An all-year-round extravaganza of traditional village festivals including: the Hazelnut Festival, craft & farmers markets, Easter parades & Infiesto´s very own Feria de Abril, a small, but equally entreating version of Sevilla´s most famous festival.
  • Romanesque churches of Santa María (Villamayor) and San Juan de Berbío (Infiesto) line a stretch of the Camino de Santiago for pilgrims walking in-land from Covadonga to Oviedo. Infiesto is also home to the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Cueva.
  • Piloña is home to the rare ¨caballo Asturcón¨, a bread of horses native to the El Sueve Nature Reserve and Monte Cayón, where there is a picnic area with BBQs and walks through forests and hilltops offering impressive views of the Picos de Europa.
