Hidden in beautiful woodland and powered by solar energy, this charming craftsman-built Uzbeki yurt offers the perfect setting for a tranquil, low-impact holiday. It’s the perfect way to experience the Spanish Pyrenees.
If you’re looking for somewhere unspoilt and completely off-grid then you’ve come to the right place. Set within 42 acres of sustainably managed woodland and bordered by two ravines, the yurt is part of a finca but is completely self-contained, and it puts you about as close to nature as you could possible get. The yurt itself is spacious and comfortable, the grounds are diverse and the surrounding area is the ideal setting for walking holidays, bird watching or just getting away from the hustle and bustle.
There is plenty to explore on foot, from abandoned villages and country lanes to river paths and woodland full of wildlife like foxes, wild boar and birds of prey. Eight miles away is the district capital of Graus which is known for its architecture and cultural events, and further afield you will find the rugged national park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido and the mountains of Maladeta and the Sierra de Guara. Make sure you enjoy some locally produced food and wine as well as one of the village fiestas, or there are plenty of more active outdoor pursuits to be enjoyed.
Las Guardias is situated 15km from the town of Graus and 100km from Huesca. Public transport is available as far as Graus and then the owners can pick you up. Guests can also be collected from Barbastro or Monzon for a small charge. Detailed directions will be provided upon booking.
