Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
In this particular varied vacation as in all of our vacations we always try to encourage and transmit the respect and sustainability required in a natural environment like the one we live in. We are located in the Aísa valley, a remote retreat in the heart of the Huesca Pyrenees (Aragón), that belongs to the Western Valleys Natural Park and is located near the French Pyrenees National Park. In this area inhabit the few endogenous bears of the Pyrenees, the bearded vulture, the Pyrenean triton and desman, and other vulnerable species of fauna and plants. It requires to increase the precaution when we walk through these valleys. So we try to make contact with the rangers, making a responsible use of the Natural Park and National Park resources.

As this is a self-guided vacation we will instruct our guests how to behave if they encounter the cattle in their walks, we will also inform them about the norms of the Natural and National parks they are going to visit.

We are a member of a conservationist association called AEMS (Ríos con vida), which tries to preserve the quality of the rivers and lakes in the Pyrenees. We also belong to a net of accommodations linked to the birdwatching activity in the Jacetania region (Birding Pirineos) with an excellent certifícate.

We also recycle all what we can: plastic, glass, organic rubbish. The most of our plants in the garden are local specimens to avoid the proliferation of exogenous ones in the area. We never use plastic water bottles neither in the meals in our bed and breakfast (we always use tap water) nor in our walks, in which we will use refillable bottles to carry the water.

Our guests house was originally a hut that was built in the nineteenth century. It was restored respecting the traditional materials (stone facade, wood structure, some stone tiles) to preserve the aesthetic of the surrounding buildings. We have put two solar panels on the roof to heat the water using the sun energy which is usually generous here.

The valley where we live is far from the overcrowded areas of the Pyrenees. It is an unkown retreat that we try to preserve. That is why all of our vacations are small group hoildays.

The Impacts of this Trip

Although this a self-guided vacation, we will offer the services of the guides with which we work if they are required by are guests. We always work with local guides and specialists from the area where we live. Our main guide lives in a neighbour town which makes a better knowledge of the environment that surrounds us possible. He will also show you the local neighbour architecture such as traditional houses.

We are passionate about the rural romanesque and mozarab architecture of this area of the Pyrenees. So we will inform our guests about the expert local guides that can show them in the best way the main, unique and sometimes remote heritage.

All the dinners in our B&B will be cooked with local food, typical of this area, and traditional dishes with some innovations. The majority of our products comes from local markets. That gives us the opportunity to support local producers and to show them to our visitors.

We try to get our visitors close to the local culture, encouraging them to visit local projects (wine bodegas, local farmers, restaurants, artisans, etc), and museums that show the history and the peculiarities of the Pyrenean culture.

Because there are still farmers in our valley, we always teach our visitors how to behave when we encounter the cattle during our hikes or walks, trying to disturb them as little as possible.

We are also a member of a local tourist association linked to the Wester Valleys Natural Park that tries to preserve our incredible valleys and to stimulate the local economy in the area (farmers, tourist businesses) by encouraging the cooperation with small local projects.
