Away from the crowds in rural Spain

  • 4 of 5

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.

très beau moulin et restauration sympathique dans une région surprenante par sa verdure ...

  • 3 of 5

quelques remarques à savoir un lit très petit en longueur et largeur donc peu confortable. Le four de la cuisinière inopérant et le bruit proche de la nationale. Bon point de départ pour des balades et le patrimoine

Heel leuk knus huis

  • 4 of 5

Mooi verbouwde molen met oog voor detail en heel persoonlijk gemaakt. Het is heel knus. Wenteltrappen van keuken naar kamer en naar slaapkamer/ badkamer. Lekker terras in schaduw. Voor mensen die wat anders willen. Alceda is een klein dorpje ( lintbebouwing) en heeft de basisvoorzieningen, een gemeente zwembad, en een paar cafe’s en restaurants. Restaurante Augosta ligt schuin t/o het huis.

Als je wat bijzonders zoekt in Cantabria is dit een leuk huis!

Casa con encanto en un bonito lugar

  • 3 of 5

La casa estaba bien, pero le falta acceso directo al jardín. Falta iluminación tanto en el jardín como en la terracita de la segunda planta ya que cuando el tiempo lo permite es agradable cenar al aire libre.

En la cocina creo que falta un pequeño microondas para dar mayor rapidez.

Por otro lado, hemos notado muchísima humedad en toda la casa, dejando incluso la ropa húmeda y fría hasta en los días de calor.

Muy acogedora y original.

  • 4 of 5

Ideal para parejas con amigos peludos. Aunque está repartida en tres plantas, la escalera es cómoda, y está puesto todo con muy buen gusto, con muchos detalles, lo que la hace acogedora y agradable. El jardín no pudimos disfrutarlo mucho por el tiempo, aunque a nuestro gato le encantó. Y la terraza es genial para cenas y desayunos. Buen enclave para visitar la zona.

une bonne semaine dans ce joli moulin

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une bonne semaine dans ce joli moulin. En plus d'être aménagé confortablement, c'est un vrai musée avec plein d'objets décoratifs anciens. On trouve dans la ville d'Alceda tous ce qu'il faut pour faire les courses et boire un verre. La mer et Santander sont à 30km. Avec l'autoroute, on peut aller visiter Bilbao. Mais on peut aussi faire du farniente dans le jardin ou s'attarder sur la terrasse après le repas.
