La Casa is a former farmstead sensitively restored and adapted to create top quality self-catering accommodation. The rustic atmosphere and character of the centuries-old property have been preserved with modern amenities added. Enclosed within its own wall, it is a village within a village. The apartments are fully independent, spacious, well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The decoration includes murals based on medieval illustrations. There are excellent views of the Picos mountains. Communal areas include a large pool, gardens and a social room. Tudes is sunny and picturesque and its 30-odd inhabitants can still be seen herding their cattle and sheep through its streets. "A quintessential mountain village with its customs and traditional architecure well preserved in a magnificent natural setting" (in the words of the judges of the Village of the Year competition). There is a delightful tavern (under the same ownership as La Casa). The area is a walker's paradise.
"A fantastic fortnight on the mountains and on the beach. It's not often you come somewhere and find that the reality is even better than your expectations but this place certainly was. Thank you for a great stay." Steve, Helen, Harry, Anna and Ed. Henley-on-Tames, Oxfordshire. August 2010
What a beautiful place to stay! Fabulous scenery, mountains, rivers and villages with colourful flowers everywhere. We travelled from Northern Ireland and found the roads a bikers dream! Saw birds of prey, butterflies and deer in the mountains. We will certainly return! Tony and Lucia are lovely hosts and the accommodation is five star. James and Alison. June 2012.
Beautifully decorated and well-equipped apartment, and a pool too! We enjoyed dinner in the garden, the nonchalant chickens in the square, the bar, the walks from the leaflets provided, and two days of hot sun. We hope to return. Peter, Hilary and Mary. October 2012
This was just perfect for us. Peaceful except for distant cow bells and fantastic views across the Picos. Our accommodation was ideal, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and a terrace to sit and read on. A welcome bottle of wine. Lots of walks from the village itself. Potes is a lovely little town and we were there during some sort of fiesta. Supermarkets for all foodstuffs and plently of choice for eating out. The taberna in Tudes was convenient for a drink and meal.
