Posada de Rosa, Cantabria and AsturiasCigüenza | Ref: CIG1 | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8
Fabulous country house set in a lush valley famous for its lemon trees
The large central staircase is just one of the impressive features of this roomy holiday home where everything is taken care of down to the last detail. A lovely country kitchen with all the modern appliances, a cosy and very spacious living room with a fine variety of sofas and armchairs to relax in, a huge garden for the kids to play in, and a covered terrace for eating and chilling out after a busy sightseeing day.
Upstairs there are four large ensuite bedrooms to choose from, all decorated in the same tasteful style as the rest of the house, with a fine blend of elegant antiques that enhance the inherent character of the property.
A large garden surrounded by stone walls offers plenty of rest areas and magnificent views of the village and its monumental St. Martin Church. The only noise here is the gentle flow of the nearby river and the occasional sounds of dogs barking and bells tolling.
Ideal for those who are looking for a private and quiet retreat, but want to be within easy reach of some of Cantabria's most popular attractions such as the fishing villages of Comillas and San Vicente de la Barquera, the famous Altamira Caves and the fantastic beaches of Oyambre Natural Park.
