Overview

Description

2 Bedroom apartment

This spacious apartment (75 sqm) has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It's entire frontage, with floor-to-ceiling living area windows and the windows of both bedrooms, has the same fantastic views across the valley below to the high peaks beyond. It is built into the side of a mountain and is all at ground level giving onto a private terrace. The apartment is ideally suited to those who appreciate space, privacy and quality - comfortable beds, duvets, cotton sheets, power assisted showers etc. Perfect for relaxing or enjoying the marvelous local walks. Although the apartment is centrally heated throughout, there is also a splendid wood-burning stove in the living room.


About the property

S26346

Comfort is the by-word – high quality twin beds, duvets, cotton sheets, soft towels with central heating throughout but cool in summer. Fully equipped kitchen, high pressure shower, heated towel-rails etc. This part of the Liébana Valley remains unspoilt with first rate walking, climbing, bird-watching and wild flowers. The coast with its white sandy beaches is only an hour away through the dramatic Hermida Gorge. Doing nothing is a definite option. We call it “Basieda Disease”.

Olmares in Basieda is ideally situated in the Liébana Valley between the National Parks of the Picos de Europa and Fuentes Carrionas in the Cordillera Cantabrica and is just an hour from some great beaches. For shopping Potes is 15km away.

The Liébana Valley: The wildlife and flowers here are varied and wonderful. The local walks from your doorstep are excellent. There are several restaurants close by and the locals are friendly – always ready to help and advise.

The Picos de Europa National Park: is justly famous for its natural beauty though it has become somewhat crowded in the season. Activities include birdwatching (the wallcreeper in particular), walking, climbing, horseriding, canoeing, canyon ascending and lots more. Fuente De with its cable car ascent is famous. The mountains are high – Torre de Cerredo is the highest at 2,648m.

Fuentes Carrionas: part of the Cordillera Cantabrica are much more of a back to nature experience. This Park is not nearly as commercialized and as a result has a special subtle attractiveness. The scenery is more open, the walking a little easier and the wildlife and flowers equally, if not more, wonderful. Because it’s quieter bears roam the high places at peace with the world. The highest Peak is Peña Prieta at 2,575m.

Peter Walker, the well-known environmentalist, has written an inspiring guide including this region – ‘Walking in the Cordillera Cantabrica’ .

The Sea: There are 2 roads from the Liébana Valley to the sea. The usual one through the dramatic Hermida Gorge is a little shorter but much busier than the Polaciones road. The Polaciones road takes you through some spectacular scenery and ancient villages of historical interest. Basieda is about half way between the 2 routes.

Touring: There are many wonderful drives with Basieda as the convenient centre base. Take the West to León and Asturias. The East to the Meseta with its Romanesque churches (the largest concentration in all Europe – details in our communal ‘salon’) and on to historic Burgos. Or take in the Roman ruins close to Aguilar de Campoo, some golden orioles and a very good restaurant for lunch! Further South drive through villages skirting the mountains and then home by the famous reservoir at Riaño. Take a picnic or eat in any of the great restaurants on your route.

We can give you a travel account number which will give you a discount of 20% when booking a Brittany Ferries crossing to Santander or Bilbao.
