POSADA UNCASTILLO ENVIRONMENT

This hotel for sale is located in the town of Uncastillo, considered the best Romanesque complex of the twelfth century in Spain.

CULTURAL HERITAGE

Uncastillo is next to Sos del Rey Católico, birthplace of King Fernando. Both are two of the most beautiful villages in Aragon. With a multitude of Romanesque churches, castles, walls, Jewish quarters and Renaissance buildings, these 2 impressive medieval ensembles are more than enough to justify a getaway to the Five Villas.

But that is not all, the cultural offer in this part of the Pre-Pyrenees is endless. Thus we can find countless castles and fortifications among which Loarre, Olite or Javier stand out. We also have monasteries such as Leyre or La Oliva. An extensive network of Juderías tells us about the Sephardic past in many villages.

Finally, the Roman past is manifested in the city of Los Bañales that still retains the hot springs and the aqueduct.

NATURE

The Pre-Pyrenees is a land of contrasts, in a few kilometers we pass from the deserted Bardenas Reales Natural Park to the lush and mountainous Protected Landscape of the Sierra de Santo Domingo.

The ravines, the gullies and the impossible erosions are the protagonists of the most spectacular enclaves of Bardenas Reales such as El Rallón, Pisquerra, La Estroza, Castildeterra or Tripa Azul.

The Well of Pigalo, the Foz de Lumbier, the Mallos de Riglos or Puy Moné are some of the landmarks that mark the landscape of the Pre-Pyrenees full of forests, mid-mountain rivers, ridges and foces. And all in absolute solitude.

In short, a paradise to get lost practicing, among friends, as a couple or as a family, hiking, cycling and mountain biking.

Inma and Miguel begin to look for the generational change with the sale of the hotel

 

Inma and Miguel have been in charge of the hotel for 20 years, a rural establishment located in the heart of the Aragonese Pre-Pyrenees that has given them great joys and good friends. The time has not yet come to retire, but both have their sights set on the near future and on ensuring the survival of their small personal project. Far from closing, the couple has decided to continue the business and seek successors to keep alive the illusion that led them two decades ago to undertake this adventure.

It all started in the spring of 1999 in Uncastillo, his hometown. Miguel left his job as a biologist in an engineering and Inma his career as a social worker. The two decided to give a change to their life and bet on a business that they were passionate about. “We have always been very hospitable, we really like to receive friends at home, and we spent some time going around. In addition, we relied totally on the tourist possibilities of Uncastillo, ”says Miguel.

There was a specific episode that definitely encouraged them to take the plunge. ”We made a trip to La Rioja where we met an older couple who had traveled and worked all over the world and who had left their companies for economic and health issues and He had retired to run a rural house. They told us it was their happiest stage. We already had the idea, but that was the trigger”he says.

Since then, they have worked very hard to carry out their project, although, as they themselves recognize, it has been worth it. ”It is a very sacrificed work, especially at the beginning, but we have always taken it with great enthusiasm and we have passed it very good. In addition, we have made friends because there are clients that after so long become friends, ”explains Miguel.

But after two decades at the foot of the canyon, the couple has decided to start thinking about when to retire, which will arrive sooner or later. However, they do not want this idea in which they have believed so long to be diluted, so they have decided to find medium-term successors for the business. “” It is something that will come and we want to get ahead. Although we are still 53 and 54 years old, we know that this is a process and we want to take steps to make something happen before reaching 65 ”.

The fundamental requirement for those who take the inn’s witness is that they share the same business philosophy as Inma and Miguel. ”Ideally, a couple would be, and that they be younger than us. The most important thing is that they like the business and that they understand that it is not just a job, it is a way of life. I still have a good time on the first day and it is a very rewarding job. It has to be people who want to, ”says Miguel.

The added advantage, according to the couple, is that their successors will not have to start “from 0”, as they did, but will take a business “underway, totally viable, with much less risk and with a portfolio of clients and a reputation digital demonstrables. ” That does not mean that there is not “much way to go” and that the future managers of the inn have to continue striving to move it forward.

In addition to the pure and hard sale they also propose a “plan B” consisting of the incorporation of workers with entrepreneurial character. These workers would later have the opportunity to take the reins of the business with a rental formula entitled to purchase.

An exceptional environment: Uncastillo is considered “the best Romanesque complex of the twelfth century in Spain”, as the website of the rural establishment points out. In addition, it is very close to the town of Sos del Rey Católico. ”Both are two of the most beautiful villages in Aragon, with many Romanesque churches, castles, walls, Jewish quarters and Renaissance buildings.” Nearby are also some of the most emblematic fortifications of Aragon and Navarra, such as Loarre, Olite or Javier, as well as the Leyre or Oliva monasteries. Not forgetting the Roman past, present in the neighboring city of Los Bañales.

In the Aragonese Pre-Pyrenees, natural wealth is another privilege of an area marked by contrast. “In a few kilometers, we can go from the deserted Bardenas Reales Natural Park (in Navarra) to the leafy and mountainous Protected Landscape of the Sierra de Santo Domingo.” The Mallos de Riglos or the Pigalo well are other highlights of the environment. Nature sports activities, in addition to the cultural ones, are one of the great attractions of the area, therefore, Inma and Miguel make their Pre-Pyrenees web page available to the inn’s clients. In it, they show from simple hiking options to do with children, to excursions of several days, as well as cycling and mountain bike routes.

In the middle of this privileged environment, the Posada de Uncastillo seeks to continue being a reference in rural tourism, that which moves away from the noise of the city and that fills the towns of life with the claim of its history and its nature. Here there are no queues or hurry, it is a very close and personal treatment, concludes the couple who has seen the project of his life.
