This is a lovely house with wonderful views, the garden is pleasant, full of birds which enjoyed the stale bread that we put out. The neighboring cat also enjoys the visitors food. The owner speaks good English and is helpful.The negatives were the arbitrary parking, the access road is very narrow and we had a problem with the septic tank being full causing a bad smell in the cottage. The owner did manage to get the tank emptied, so I guess we were just a bit unlucky.
Winding your way up into the mountains you find this lovely little house overlooking the town. The snow capped mountains behind lead down into the lush green valley with the prettiest cows. It is a truly stunning location. The weather and time of day bring new hues to the view from the veranda so you could just sit there all day becoming ever more relaxed and at peace. At night you can sit enjoying the stars and the hoots of the owls. We arrived in spring so got to enjoy the garden with the daffodils & tulips in full bloom. Inside it is comfortable, cosy with everything you need.
There are plenty of good walks straight from the house into the mountains or the one out the back of Pen to Santillan is well worth the effort, the bakery there do nice pasties too. The cheese factory is a short walk away and they give a warm welcome to visitors.
Maria is lovely, met us with coffee on arrival and she couldn't have made us feel more at home. Her bright personality and love of the place is infectious.
