Host Marta is very welcoming and full of useful information, communicated in Spanish. The house is homely, clean and cottagey, but rooms are large and beds very comfortable. It's next to a stunning and very cold stream that became a river after rains. The village of Leirganes is 20 mins from Santander but has a totally different feel. It's a good place to visit the stunning mountains and gorgeous hill-towns like Potes, Fuente De with the 1,800m cable car in the Picos Europa National Park. We also recommend Bilbao and the Guggenheim, that and Picos are approx 80 mins away. Lierganes is a pretty, small town with a few restaurants and cafe's by the river. Highly recommend - a lovely weeks stay.
The mill is filled with objects representing rural life and that of people long gone, it has a rustic charm yet most of the facilities of modern days. 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.
