Reasons for trip


We stayed with Jossé and Gustavo at the Hotel Barosse for one night, last year, during a road trip across the Pyrenees, and loved their amazing hotel and hospitality so much, we returned this year for four nights! The Hotel Barosse is situated in a tiny hamlet about 4km outside Jaca. As soon as you enter the garden, through a wrought iron gate and smell the incredible perfume from numerous jasmine bushes, you know you have found somewhere special!

The hotel has five bedrooms, all beautiful, and stylishly furnished. We have stayed in Ermita, a wonderful building in the garden, on both occasions. Ermita is spacious, with an extremely comfy bed, gorgeous linen, scented candles and has an amazing en suite bathroom with monsoon shower, huge fluffy towels and all rooms have L’Occitane products for guests’ use.

Guests eat in a communal dining room, again beautifully furnished, with a wood burning stove for use in winter. The breakfasts are sublime! The table groans under the weight of home baked cake and croissants, cheeses, meats, fruit and cereals. Fresh orange juice is squeezed to order, and cooked breakfasts of every kind, are on offer too! Jossé will cook evening meals if guests require them. From personal experience, we can very highly recommend his cooking! Chatting to other guests around the table has has provided us with some valuable tips on walking routes in the area!

Hotel Barosse also boasts a spa, sauna and jacuzzi, which is for guests’ private use, and is very welcome after a day hiking in the mountains!

The Hotel is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful region of Aragon and Huesca, and Jossé is a mine of information on the most beautiful places to visit. We were spellbound by some of the amazing scenery, on and off the beaten track, and there are numerous hiking trails in the mountains for every kind of walker, from ambler, to serious trekker. Jaca itself, is a ski town in the winter, but summer brings lots of walkers and holidaymakers passing through the Pyrenees. There are many excellent restaurants and Tapas bars to be found amongst it’s maze of streets.

We cannot recommend the Hotel Barosse and it’s lovely, welcoming and very knowledgable owners, Jossé and Gustavo, highly enough. This place deserves every bit of the high praise it gets, and we cannot wait to go back!
