"Slow Hotel" philosophy
For those of you who are unaccustomed to the terms Slow travel, Slow food, and Slow hotel, it is all about, you guessed it, slowing the whole thing down. Making careful, conscious decisions to do everything as well as possible, remaining focused on quality rather than quantity. Less is more in a Slow Hotel.
We, el gran sueño, have fulfilled our big dream to create a special place, something unique focused on quality. To achieve the best results, we knew from the beginning el gran sueño had to reflect our personalities, our own experiences in travel as well as our commitment to the environment and the local community. At the time, we were not aware of it, however, we were already on track to creating a Slow Hotel.
This Slow Philosophy continues in our kitchen too. Our perception that a commitment to healthy living and organic, locally grown produce is the secret to great food. We are not professional chefs, however, we do love cooking, and we buy the best quality ingredients from local suppliers who care about what they supply. We love pleasing our guests with a Slow Food experience.
If Slow Travel is important to you, el gran sueño is perfect. We use Wikiloc to record walks right from our door. Neighbouring villages such as Pintueles, Espinaredo, and Ceceda offer typically Asturias character without the necessity to drive too far. Furthermore, and slower still, our garden offers the perfect Slow Travel experience. There is no need to leave the place, just relax in one of our garden chairs and take a deep breath of fresh mountain air. Slow right down and enjoy!
