Casa Guareña

Casa Guareña

Rural accommodation the province of Burgos in northern Spain

Menchu and Agus

Hello, we are called
Menchu and Agus

We were both born in Madrid. Some years ago, we visited the little-known area in the north of Burgos province called the Merindades and we fell in love with it. So we decided to move here and find a way to share the place with other people, who love exploring nature and enjoying its tranquility like us.

We built La Casita and El Mirador ourselves using ecological materials like wood and straw. Perhaps this is why we think the house is so cosy. We are sure that people who come and stay with us, will enjoy the comfortable rooms as much as the garden and mountain views from the terrace all year round, and the welcoming wood stove in the colder seasons.

Once our house was built, it was time to gradually increase the family and now we have one dog (Lucas), four cats (Michi, Panceta, Comino and Canelita) and two horses (Whiskey and Swing). Our guests can also enjoy their company. 

La Casita

La Casita is ideal for 4 people, a family or friends.
