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!

                                                                                                      We were looking for a suitable cottage for a family of eight in Cantabria with access to the mountains and the beaches. Somewhere with access too to facilities (food shopping, restaurants etc.) but away from any big towns. We found all of that and more. This cottage was perfect. Out of the village and looking over the fields it was close to a supermarket to stock up and lovely for having meals out on the patio. Every room was brilliant and all the facilities just right. Our hosts met us on arrival and kept in touch throughout our stay without ever imposing themselves. They met us again on our departure. Cantabria itself truly performed. Where else can you go from high mountain peaks to miles of sandy beaches in just a few minutes. The Picos national park is stunning but, as suggested by Robert and our friends, there are quieter and equally beautiful mountains closer to the house. Oh, and caves. Lots of caves, many of them of international importance where (you may need to pre-book) you can stand in front of real cave art (more well-visited caves may show you perfect reconstructions to avoid damage). If you add the stunning villages like Santillana del Mar and a load of local cider, Cantabria is a great place for a couple of weeks. This cottage is a perfect base and our whole family loved every minute of our stay.

The surrounding area ensures a peaceful and tranquil time with stunning views across the valley. The house contains pretty much everything you would need but if you like to drink tea then bring a large mug as the cups are quite small. Also, wifi is not available which may disappoint some technophobes. Access is fine except for a steep drive and steps to the side paved access which may prove awkward if you are unsteady on your feet."
