Casa La Ribera, Cantabria and Asturias

Lon | Ref: POT19 | Bedrooms: 2 | Sleeps: 5

Beautifully restored cottage nestling below mountain peaks in the Picos.

A beautifully and very recently restored detached stone cottage with an enclosed garden and covered porch. Nestling below the majestic peaks of the Picos de Europa, it stands at the top of the picturesque farming village of Lon, renowned for its goat cheese.

The owner, with her artistic eye, has lovingly restored the original furniture belonging to the house which fits in perfectly with the beamed ceilings and stone walls and modern additions to make a very comfortable holiday home. Tastefully decorated and presented with a feeling of space and light, the views are a pure delight.

With mountain walks and easier strolls directly from the door, a good restaurant in the village and the market town of Potes just 7 kms away, you couldn't be better placed for a real mountain holiday!

NB_The owners will accept pets.

The pretty farming village of Lon is tucked under the mountains, two kilometres off the main road that goes from Potes to Fuente De.

It is a peaceful, rural spot with good marked walks from the village. A local dairy produces its own cheese, and the farmers keep goats and hens.

The Posada in the village has a nice bar and restaurant with home cooked food and the camping near the main road has a bar/restaurant and swimming pool (3 euros per person).

There are no shops, but bread vans and other mobile shops come to the village. Potes is 6km away with all facilities.
