My mother-in-law lives in Leon, and I wanted to bring my parents to the North of Spain for the first time, until now, they had only known Spain from beach holidays. They do have a big dog, and he is very friendly, but also very wild. They are interested in history and botany, and enjoy good food and drink. So I searched for a house to rent, with a garden, close to Las Medulas and also Prada a Tope, and found the Casa Canedo.
The garden is gigantic and all fenced in, the dog was ecstatic when we got there. There is also a stork nest about 20m away from the house.
The one complaint I have is about the beds. I'm almost 2m tall, so my single bed was too small, and my parents also were a very tight fit in one of the 'double' beds, and they are not tall. Apart from that, everything is top-notch. The bathrooms are super-nice, there are bikes to use and there is wood for fires, there are motion-sensors for the lights and radiators that can be controlled electronically individually and there is a good BBQ on the terrace.
Don Canedo also has a nice setup with the locals, who will come, and offer to BBQ for you, and the local bakery will drop off a list of their products and you can have them delivered.
Sadly, the pool was not yet ready when we were there, but then again, it was pretty cold and it rained a lot , but we still had an amazing time.
We had a wonderful time at Merche & Ricardo. We felt absolutely welcomed at their place, their house is beautiful, the pictures don´t lie. They are a lovely couple and they even provided a little tour for us.
Thank you Merche & Ricardo we will never forget your hospitality and kindness
