The dining room and terrace are particularly well furnished. The main bedroom is very comfortable but the second bedroom lacks privacy. Very clean and well equipped kitchen. Within waking distance from shops and the centre.

A mountain right outside the window! Great walks from the village and within a short drive from the house. There are no shops or bars in the village so we ate in bar/restaurants in local villages which were all excellent, inexpensive hearty food. We loved the Picos mountains and our only disappointment was staying for only 4 nights! You need a week or more to really enjoy the area.
