Gastronomy, walks and villages to surprise your partner in the Aragonese Pyrenees

If you want to enjoy a trip for two full of charm we recommend you to visit the Aragonese Pyrenees, specifically the region of Sobrarbe, where you can find fairytale villages, know unique routes and taste unique products. What more could you ask for? Surprise your partner with a trip that neither of you will forget. You provide the love, we, at Casas Pirineo, provide the accommodation.

A unique house

In order to enjoy a romantic trip, it is essential to have a good accommodation. If you are one of those who like to blend in with your destination, what could be better than staying in a 16th century palatial house but with all the comforts of the 21st century. Casas Pirineo meets both requirements by offering you spacious facilities, fully modernized but with reminiscences of the past. A stroll through both this former mansion and the village of Gerbe, where it is located, is the best start for a trip as a couple.

A special dinner

Dare to prepare dinner yourself. The products of our area will make it easy for you because they are top quality, natural and artisanal foods. In addition, at Casas Pirineo you will find everything you need to prepare it. Start with a snack of cheeses, pâtés, jams or cold meats with authentic local bread. You can accompany it with a salad with truffle, a product difficult to find in other parts of Spain. To continue, we encourage you to try the chiretas, tortetas or Sobrarbe sausage, the most outstanding products of our gastronomy. In the case of the chiretas, you can buy them ready to eat and the longaniza and tortetas can be grilled on the barbecue available at Casas Pirineo. And to make your dinner a rounded one, we suggest you to taste the wines of Somontano or the beer and pacharán made in the territory.

Fairytale villages

In the Sobrarbe region you will find many villages that you will surely fall in love with. Aínsa, Plan, Boltaña or Tella are just some of them but in today’s post we want to focus on one that really seem to come out of a fairy tale. We are talking about Torla – Ordesa. Its houses, streets and flowers will leave you open-mouthed. A great plan for a romantic day!

Torla – Ordesa is located 1033 meters above sea level and is the gateway to the Ordesa Valley. In winter you will find its streets full of snow, in spring and summer, surrounded by flowers and in autumn by the dozens of colors that autumn offers in the area. In addition, you can see old mansions or the church of San Salvador, of Romanesque origin but rebuilt in the sixteenth century. By the way, don’t forget to look up to see the witch scarecrows that were placed in the chimneys to prevent witches from entering the houses. Today, there are many neighbors who continue with this tradition of placing elements such as stones or crucifixes on their chimneys.

Relax in the middle of nature

Remember that you are far away from the big city so relax and forget about running from one place to another. Take the opportunity to walk leisurely and enjoy your surroundings. You can find routes of all kinds, from those that run through the Natural Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido to those that reveal places full of magic and legends such as the visit to the ibón de Plan, also called Basa de la MoraA Pyrenean ibón that you will surely fall in love with, so put on some good boots and enjoy!
