The kitchen is a little cramped by the mill wheel and some maintenance on the cooker would be helpful. The first floor lounge is comfortable with views across the village and the top floor bedroom, though dark, is cosy. A good bathroom with ample hot water completes the top floor. All is connected by a modern metal spiral staircase. You have to be fit! There is an outside sitting terrace which could do with a sweep,and tidy up. Parking is up a short, narrow cobble lane and turning is on a steep slope, good practice in manoevering. The village has several small supermarkets and lots of other shops and bars, everything you need is there. The village also has a large wooded park with adventure features. This is an area superb for mountain scenery and walking. Anyone into wild flowers will be amazed. The nearest restaurant is just across the road past the church. Brush up your Spanish, very little English is spoken, but everyone is friendly and will greet you.

The location is incredible, so quiet, amazing views and stunning wildlife make this place worth a visit even without the great villages and sights to visit nearby. San Sebastian 2 hours away is beautiful and great fun, Bilbao an hour away is a really interesting and intriguing city. The mountains are great for walking, even with a 7 and 4 year old we had a good trek and some wonderful views. Espinosa about 10 minutes away is a lovely town and the market there was superb, we ended up with half a kilo or a kilo of everything as our Spanish was not up to scratch but really great to feel part of Spanish rural culture. We were also lucky enough to be around for the festival Las Nieves in the local village Las Machorras, again it was fantastic to be a part of local Spanish culture and amazing to see such a large event take place in such a tiny village, they really went to town! As for the property itself, we fell in love with it. Well equipped and with everything you need for a family of four. The evenings were a little chilly so the huge wood burning stove was put to good use on a couple of occasions and added to the enjoyment! Borja has been fantastic with information and ideas leading up to our stay and the arrival and departure were so easy it was fantastic to start and end our stay as we did. We can't recommend this place highly enough if you want to really get away from it all!
