Stylish, recently built cottage in large garden in coastal village.

This stylish, detached cottage, recently built with quality traditional materials, stands in a pretty, very large, well maintained garden, with beautiful open views onto the valley and the hills beyond.

Attractively decorated and furnished and very well equipped, though modern in style, its high beamed ceilings and solid wood windows and doors, give it a homely, warm feeling.
Practical and comfortable, WIFI and satellite T.V. are a welcome bonus as is a change of linen and towels during your stay.

At the end of a lane, with other properties around, you are in a lovely country spot here and the views alone let you know this.

In the coastal village of Orena with a couple of restaurants, there are stimulating cliff walks and you are perfectly based for visiting nearby Santillana del Mar and the Altamira caves and the delightful beach at Cobreces is just a short drive.

Located in a hilly coastal area, this long winding village is now mainly a low density residential area, though still with a few smaller farms with cows and horses stabled next to their owners. There are also a few restaurants and a bar and bread and fish vans rush and hoot energetically through the village.

Lovely walks through the little fields and meadows take you to the dramatic cliffs and to an imposing old church (originating from Roman times). From here, on a clear day, you get splendid views of the Picos de Europa.

A bypass cuts through the beautiful valley leaving the old village road relatively peaceful. The nearest beach is at Cóbreces, 10 kms away, the pretty village of Novales, famous for its lemons on the way, and the historical village of Santillana del Mar just 3 kms.
