A few years ago, an Asturian customer left on the coffee table of the room named “los Ventolines” an envelope with a message: “Because we believe it reflects the spirit of your home”. Inside the envelope there was a poem entitled to an Asturian writer named BERTA PINAN and in his last stanza “A House” we read:
A story to tell & An experience to live
Posada la Cotía
You will have the feeling of being in a loved place, having stopped the time, a time to feel the place, a time to…
We know that the house was built in 1860 by the date carved on the lintel of the front door.
The farm now divided was initially belonged to the “Garcia-Bustamante” family whose arms appear on the coat of arms, carved in the stone arch that leads into the house of our neighbors.
A member of the Bustamante family, delegate of the Spanish crown in a region located between Brazil and Argentina that currently holds the name “Cotia,” was ordered construction of what is now our home. The neighborhood where the house rose was named “Cotia” in memory of american land in which he lived.
Over time, the farm and the house changed ownership and uses. It was “parsonage Reocín Valley” and while doing rehabilitation to make it Posada Rural several forms of papal bulls dated in 1965 appeared under the original chestnut wooden floor.
