The house is recently restored in an excellent way. It has a beautiful view on the Cantabrian mountains. Equipment is good (it's a pity there is no horno). We enjoyed the perfect garden chairs! There are some great hikes in the surrounding, but also interesting places to visit (to visit Santander, take the train from Lierganes). WiFi is avilable in bar San Vicente in San Roque. The coast is nearby, so enjoy a lunch on one of the many nearby beaches!
What an incredible stay we have had at this wonderful property. 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!
