About the Owner

Originally we are from Holland. My husband and I fell in love with this beautifull region of northern Spain and decided to live there permantly. We purchased the property in 2001 and we are very hapy here with our 2 children who had 1 and 3 years of age when we went to Spain.

We live within the property, at the other side of the house. We´re always happy to offer help and advice during your stay, whilst at the same time, respecting your privacy. We hope you will enjoy Cantabria just as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Die Fotos und die Beschreibungen im Inserat haben sich mehr als bestätigt. Das Cottage bietet Ruhe und einen wunderschönen Ausblick. Selbst bei Regenwetter konnten wir trocken und gemütlich auf der Terrasse sitzen. Die Wohnung ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und hat eine gemütliche Atmosphäre. Mit Fragen und Anliegen konnten wir jeder Zeit zu unseren Vermietern gehen und wir wurden sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit beraten. In der näheren Umgebung konnten wir viele Ausflüge machen: Strände, nette Orte und Städtchen und auch Wandergebiete sind gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Es war ein Urlaub, den wir gerne wiederholen möchten, auch weil Kinder dort viel Platz haben, sich zu beschäftigen und zu bewegen. Danke für die schöne Zeit.

A lovely place to get away from it all!

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint cottage in a very pretty and peaceful setting with birdsong and flowers through the meadow. It is well equipped and Judith is very helpful. There is a terrace under cover which we used as the weather was changeable. We enjoyed trips to the Altemira caves , Comillas and Santillana. Del Mar and the beach close to San Vincente ( Oyambre). You will need a car to get around but the upside tis the wildlife, I saw a wild boar crossing the road!

Perfect, beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional place to stay from all aspects: full and accurate advance information and directions to get there; clean & well-maintained; very helpful hosts, Judith and Martin, who went out of their way to give their guests the best experience. We particularly liked the private swimming pool after our day's walking, and the large private terrace and views of country and mountains: you do not often get that. The shower room is attractive and spacious, with endless hot water! The two bedrooms above were helpful even for a couple (if one snored, the other could move and close the door!!). It is quiet at night, unlike some village-based properties. It is a perfect area for many hikes, in the Picos de Europa and in the Saja Besaya natural park. Could not be better: we will return and recommend to everyone.

Beautiful cottage in lovely location

A warm welcome from Judith preceded a very pleasant stay in the cosy and comfortable cottage. Set in easy reach of beaches and places of interest only a short drive away. Thank you!

Really delightful setting and a lovely experience!

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple with two young boys, we hired a car from the airport and stayed in the cottage for 5 nights. The holiday was a great success for the many different things to do and see in the surrounding area – but at the root of having a great time is the place you stay, and this cottage was fabulous for the tranquility and picture perfect location. It’s beautiful outside, but the inside is also good with nothing wanting for guests. Judith is very nice and welcoming. Leaving freshly laid eggs at the door one morning was a really thoughtful touch, as was bringing out a trampoline for the kids to play on. We all highly recommend Judith’s place in Cantabria.

Alovely place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful spot. The house is small but has everything you need and is comfortable. Particularly good when the weather allows you to use the outdoor space. Judith was very helpful and welcoming - thanks again for the eggs :)

The mountains are stunning and well worth the effort of getting to them. The Altamira replica cave was a bit disappointing, but the limestone caves at El Soplao are superb.

Ankommen - durchatmen - sich wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Die Fotos und Beschreibungen haben sich mehr als bestätigt. Das Cottage bietet Ruhe und einen wunderschönen Ausblick. Im Garten gibt es viele schöne Plätzchen, an denen man sich gerne aufhält. Vorallem Kinder haben viele Möglichkeiten, sich zu beschäftigen und zu bewegen. Die Wohnung ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und hat eine gemütliche Atmosphäre. Sehr genossen haben wir die große überdachte Terrasse, auf der man sich auch bei Regenwetter geschützt aufhalten kann. In der näheren Umgebung konnten wir mit dem Auto schöne Ausflüge machen: Strände, hübsche Orte und Städtchen und Wandermöglichkeiten waren gut zu erreichen. Wir finden, dass es ein Urlaubsort ist, von dem man ungern wieder fort fährt und gerne wieder hinfährt. Danke für die schöne Zeit.

The Picos is home to over 70 mammal species including lynx, wolves and bears. It is ideal for bird-watchers with over 176 bird species including hawks, kites and eagles and 155 species of butterfly.

Coast/Beach:

Many gorgeous sandy beaches to enjoy, for example La Concha´de Suances at 25 min. drive, a shell formed beach ideal for swimming and sun bathing.

Another Suances beach is Los Locos, more natural and famous for it's big waves, ideal for surfers. There is also the natural park of Liencres, a beautiful dune reserve with stunning beaches and pine tree woods, for long walks on the beach.

Travel:

Cars can be hired at Bilbao or Santander airports or you can bring your own car on the ferries from Portsmouth or Plymouth.

Distances:

The house is located in a quiet and natural surrounding, at 1km from the village of San Miguel de Cohicillos. The town Cartes, at 5km, is worth visiting for it´s beautiful medieval ´Camino Real´ connecting it to the even so beautifully village of Riocorvo. Santillana del Mar is at 15 min. Colourful fishing villages as Comillas, San Vicente de la Barquera at 25 min. Santander at 30min. Potes and ´Los Picos de Europa´ and Bilbao and he Guggenheim museum at one hours drive. Close to Cabárceno.

Further Details:

A delightful rustic cottage set in the foothills of the Ibio mountain range but only 20 minutes from the Atlantic beaches. Ideal for those who just want to escape to an idyllic location and relax or those who are looking for adventure.

The northern Spanish province of Cantabria forms a large part of the area known as Green Spain, a region far removed from the frenetic activity of Spain's southern resorts. It is easy to imagine that you are in an entirely different country. This is a traditional, still largely undiscovered Spain where countryside and coast combine to reward visitors with a truly unforgettable experience.

To wander the network of cobbled streets of medieval towns like Santillana del Mar or Potes has often been likened to entering a living museum. There's absolutely no doubt that Santillana is one of the most perfectly preserved medieval villages anywhere in Spain. All around us you'll find some of the most spectacularly beautiful countryside imaginable.

All along the Cantabrian coastline you'll also discover any number of gorgeous sandy beaches blissfully free of crowds.

The property is ideally located to explore the breathtaking natural beauty of the Northern coast of Spain.

If you like fish and seafood then San Vicente de la Barquera is the place for you. A lovely small fishing town with a castle on a hill, and a really long sandy beach. Loads of great fish restaurants. The proximity to the coast influences many aspects of life from the painted fishing boats in San Vicente and Llanes harbour to the range of local seafood available in restaurants and local shops. But you can also escape to the mountains, losing yourself on twisting mountain roads and discovering tiny remote village.
