Posada La Pastora Personally recommended by Alan Connor

Our plan was to stay at Posada La Pastora for one night. That was in 2007, and we have been back every year since.

On that first visit, the hotel seemed a likely stop-off during a tour of Aragon. We got to talking to the proprietor, Miguel, about some ways of passing time there and, before we knew it, we'd spent the whole holiday exploring the nearby area: the natural pool at Pozzo Pigalo, the stunning lunar landscape of the Bardenes Reales, and the quietly fascinating towns of the Cinco Villas.

And the hotel's own town, Uncastillo, which at first glance appeared to be the kind of place you drive through on the way to somewhere else, turned out to be densely packed with interest. The town has a subtle, intelligent, modern way of showcasing its immense history and culture, as well as fiestas quite unlike anything you can imagine.

Most of all, though, the reason we keep coming back is the hospitality. Posada la Pastora is so much like a home that you don't want to leave for your real one. The breakfasts are better than they have any right to be. And now that we visit as a family, we find that the beautiful Apartamentos Uncastillo - run as an adjunct to the hotel - do the same comforting job for self-catering holidaymakers.

Miguel and Inma have created something magical here, in a tranquil corner of Spain that nobody has managed to spoil.
