Parador de Bielsa - Traditional-style mountain hotel (3*)
Located in the spectacular and wild Ordesa National Park, under the slopes of Monte Perdido (the third highest peak in the Pyrenees, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site), this cosy and welcoming Parador exudes an air of warm hospitality, making it an ideal destination for those wishing to get away from it all.
Built somewhat in the style of a stone- mountain refuge, but on a larger and more luxurious scale, the Parador de Bielsa has an extensive balcony on which guests may dine while enjoying unsurpassed mountain views over the river.
The lounge area resembles a hunting lodge and, with its mahogany décor and old log fireplace, it provides the perfect cosy shelter from the cold during winter months. Benefitting from a garden and access to the river, Bielsa's Parador is a haven for those looking to soak up the area’s natural beauty. The rooms are decorated in the similar mountain-lodge style, with many boasting beautiful views of the surrounding Pyrenean scenery.
Local specialities on offer at the Parador de Bielsa’s restaurant include Migas aragonesas (a dish involving breadcrumbs, pork and sausage), Trucha del Cinca a lo fino (trout stuffed with onion and mushrooms) and Pasteras Belsetanas (thin, crispy pastries stuffed with jam and chocolate).
