Casa Nieves, Cantabria and AsturiasLa Acebosa | Ref: LAA1 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6
Detached modern bungalow set in a peaceful complex with easy access to the beaches
Despite its modern appearance the house is full of character, with high wood ceilings and open beams throughout. It comprises a fully equipped kitchen, a cosy living room with fireplace, two bathrooms of which one is ensuite, and three double bedrooms. Outside there is a spacious porch area with table, chairs and barbecue, two covered terraces, one with access to the living room and master bedroom and the other at the entrance of the house, plus a lovely lawn garden that surrounds the property giving it lots of privacy and open views.
Casa Nieves is located in a rural village where small farmhouses are intermixed with residential dwellings. With San Vicente de la Barquera and its seafront just a few kilometres away (even within walking distance if you don't mind stretching your legs a little), restaurants, shops and bars are conveniently close, and should you fancy a change of scenery, then why not head to the Picos de Europa mountains for some spectacular hiking or the city of Santander for some shopping?
Accommodation DescriptionA few steps lead up to the entrance door with a small terrace to the left. The door opens into a hallway from where all the rooms are accessed. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and access to another covered terrace which it shares with the living room. Here the main features are a large chaise longue and a fireplace. Both bathrooms have bathtubs and the kitchen is equipped with all modern conveniences. Tiled floors, wooden windows with inward opening shutters and a blend of rustic and modern décor adds quality and warmth to this beautiful bungalow.
Outside, a large porch with table, chairs and barbecue and a fully enclosed garden with sun loungers offers the perfect spot for outdoor living and entertaining. Parking is within the grounds right in front of the house.

Dramatically situated on two estuaries, backed by the magnificent Picos de Europa, San Vicente de la Barquera must have one of the best settings on the coast in the whole of Northern Spain.
Its old town has an impressive C16th Iglesia de Santa Maria de los Angeles and an imposing C13th castle amongst other interesting buildings.
With its lovely beaches and great choice of bars and restaurants (including Michelin two stars "Annua") serving fish and seafood delights, it is fairly bustle, but pleasantly lively in the summer months and for its grand fiesta "La Folia" in April when the Virgen de la Barquera is taken out to sea.
There is a good choice of small shops, supermarkets, a covered market and a weekly street market on Saturdays.
There are buses along the coast to Santander and to neighbouring Asturias, and trains from the FEVE station located on the outskirts of La Acebosa take you in either direction too.
- Lovely beaches - El Tostadero in the estuary. The beautiful long, open beach of Playa Merón. The nearby country beaches of Santillán and Prellezo.
- Surfing on Playa Merón or Oyambre.
- Canoeing on the Rio Deva and other outdoor activities.
