The location is amazing, surrounded by mountains and near a river. Cantabria is one of the best choices for a holidays in Spain.The mill is kept in perfect conditions, clean and well-maintained with all kind of facilities. We really enjoyed our staying during the Christmas season. I highly recomend it.

Despite my wife's back problems which arose just before we arrived, we really enjoyed our stay. Nearby Lierganes has plenty of facilities to fulfil needs, including a very helpful Doctor's Surgery! We visited the spectacular mountain passes just 15km up the road from the flat, as well as Potes in the Picos Mountains, and some local beaches (Galziano in particular was great). The top flat was worth the climb each day as the view from the balcony was great, and good for supping an evening glass of beer or wine according to the heat of the day. Easy to see Vultures and even an eagle soaring overhead, as well as small garden birds flitting back and forth, with a nightly owl calling too while we could star gaze without the usual UK light pollution. The bed was comfortable and the provision of washing machine and tumble dryer in the basement was helpful after so many hot days. The main bug-bear was the heat in the flat from being on the top floor.... opening the Velux roof windows was some help but that would then let various bugs in once the lights were on.... Overall still well worth while staying here.

Lots of care gone into the restoration of this house which is set in a nice valley with lovely views and river running down below which is a good way to spend a day paddling. The welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch. Loved the table tennis in the basement too, a fun way to spend time waiting for the washing machine to finish. Great base for our stay and there was so much to do in this area to keep the whole family happy - numerous stunning long sandy beaches with good waves, to prehistoric caves, scenic mountain drives direct from the door, high rope adventures at Alceda and lovely historic towns (Santillana del Mar). Nearby Liérganes was a pretty little town with great restaurants. Not far from Santander, and Bilbao was only an hour or so away. Both worth a day trip. Picos de Europa mountains about 2 hours away. Very impressed with Cabárceno wildlife park literally minutes away. Loved this part of Spain and the house was a relaxing place to come back to after a good day out.
