Casa de aldea & Hotel rural
La Montaña Mágica is located in northern Spain, in the County of Llanes.
In the year 1168 Don Alfonso IX, King of Castile and Leon, bestowed the name of Fuero to both the village and the surrounding “County of Llanes”. In 1230 the County was incorporated into the western end of the Asturias de Oviedo, itself adjacent to the Asturias de Santillana. In 1388 the Principality of Asturias was created, as was the title of “Prince of Asturias”, a title which still to this day designates the heir to the Spanish throne. In 1833 the Asturias de Oviedo became the Province of Oviedo, which has been known officially as the Province of Asturias since 1983 and remains the only province in the Autonomous Region of Asturias since 1981. Currently, all authorities and administration – tourism, lodging, etc. – are delegated through this autonomous region. La Montaña Mágica must and does follow all laws, norms, rules, and precepts that it dictates. As such:
La Montaña Mágica is separated into two distinct establishments regarding its administration. The first, La Montaña Mágica, casa de aldea (farmhouse), and the second, La Montaña Mágica, hotel rural (rural hotel). Imitating the system of stars introduced to classify different hotel types, the government implemented a similar system to rank casas de aldea. In place of stars, triskeles (Celtic-inspired, three-legged spirals) serve to distinguish the quality of the farmhouse. La Montaña Mágica prides itself with three, the highest distinction possible. La Montaña Mágica, the rural hotel, also boasts three stars. After creating this separation between a farmhouse and a rural hotel, the Principality of Asturias later introduced a brand to distinguish rural accommodation of a particularly high quality – Aldeas, Asturias Calidad Rural. La Montaña Mágica has been a member of this elite group since its inception. According to law, La Montaña Mágica must advise its guests of the distinction between these two types of accommodation.
