Casa Nieves, Cantabria and Asturias

La Acebosa | Ref: LAA1 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6

Detached modern bungalow set in a peaceful complex with easy access to the beaches

Within close proximity to the ever-popular fishing town of San Vicente de la Barquera, this lovely detached bungalow is the perfect retreat for families with smaller kids or people with walking difficulties, as the living space is all on one floor. With the motorway just a short drive away, the house is also perfect for those who want to explore some of Northern Spain’s prettiest and most treasured attractions, not only in Cantabria, but also in the neighbour region of Asturias which is nearby, offering a good choice for excursions.

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 Description

A 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.

La Acebosa

The rural village of La Acebosa is centred around its church, a small square and a bowling court where the locals meet over a game of ”bolos” – a traditional and very popular sport in the area. There is even a bowling school here. A country road connects the village with the colourful harbour town of San Vicente de la Barquera, walkable in aproximately half an hour.

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.
