Starting to replan another Camino for fall of 2022. Has anyone heard from Istvan and Barbara of Corazon Puro? That was such a wonderful experience and start to the Camino. Wondering if they are considering coming back?

I loved staying with them in April 2015. They had to shut down due to family illness in 2017 when I tried booking with them again. I think they returned to Hungary. As of 2019 there was still nothing showing on the internet advertising their private albergue.

Curazon Puro in Bizkaret is another pleasure that is only a happy memory.
I stayed in 2013 and 2014; their three course supper was always most savory with native Hungarian spices and their varied conversations were most helpful. ...Good memories of great hosts.

I have two Camino friends I originally met around the dinner table when I stayed at Corazon Puro. We have kept in touch regularly and every fall we meet up for a "Camino mini-reunion" in various locations as we all live in the Midwest.

Read a post from Barbara couple of years back. For family reasons they had to return to Hungary so we're closed for one season. They had paid the rent on the building for the full year but not long after getting back to Hungary, she discovered the building owners had rented to someone else who were operating under Barbara's business name. Obviously was very angry and asked that pilgrims should give the place a miss. She never got it back to my knowledge. I got on very well with her as she lived for a while in Belfast so we had a lot to talk about

One of the best things about Corazon Puro is how they would pick you up at the Pamplona train station...overnight at their lovely place, then drive you to SJPdP the next morning. SO convenient, and a wonderful way to start. Anyone know if anyone else is doing that?

Corazon Puro was my very first "taste" of the Camino Frances in 2015. Istvan picked us up at the bus station in Pamplona. The pilgrim meal was great and I am still friends with the two Americans at the dinner table and we meet up every year for a mini-reunion and we make tapas, Santiago cake...and have plenty of Rioja wine.
I remember going in the bathroom for my shower after the long flight from the US and wondering "Where are the towels and soap?"...oh yeah, I got'ta dig them out of my own backpack. Let the Camino begin! 😃
P.S. Istvan drove us to SJPdP the next morning to begin...
