Find your ideal villa:


La Cepada, Cantabria and Asturias

Carrandi | Ref: COL4 | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 6

House of character; stunning views of Sueve mountains & the Dinosaur coast.

A traditional, three storey, detached house in a quiet, farming corner with a handful of neighbours, in the picturesque village of Carrandi which is spread out on a backbone of the foothills of the magnificent Sierra del Sueve which forms a spectacular backdrop.

Not only do you have the mountain views but, being just inland from the coast, you are spoilt for choice with a fantastic panorama of the coastline and its lovely beaches as well as the ancient fishing port of Lastres.

Nicely traditional and cosy, the house has been gently restored with two modern bathrooms and a newer attic floor. With its beamed ceilings and wood floors upstairs and traditional furniture, it is very well cared for and maintained with most mod cons with your comfort in mind.

Just sitting out in the garden or by the front door, you will feel a complete oneness with the nature around you, yet you are not far away from essential facilities with the market town of Colunga at three kilometres, the ancient fishing port of Lastres, a little further, and the most beautiful, sandy beaches less than a ten minute drive.
A perfect spot for exploring this delightful corner of Asturias.

Backed by the magnificent Sierra del Sueve with the 'highest peak nearest the coast' in Europe, Picu Pienzu, with spectacular views of the coastline and Playa de La Isla and the ancient fishing port of Lastres, Carrandi is a picturesque farming village stretched out on a backbone of the foothills of the Sierra. Away from it all, a perfect spot to admire dramatic views all around.

It doesn't have a shop or a bar but the bread van comes every day and the fish van once a week. The town of Colunga with most facilities is just three kilometres away. The lovely beach at La Isla is a very quick drive down the hill at three kilometres.

Reviews of this property

The location of the property was stunning and we were very lucky that the weather allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the views. We were well looked after by the owner and provided with a variety of different vegetables on an almost daily basis.
