Casa de Cervera 1 (CER1)
Cantabria and Asturias Village
Cervera Location Type
This large old south facing farmhouse, with majestic views of the Picos de Europa beyond, has been cleverly and carefully converted into two very attractive and comfortable semi-detached cottages.
Stone walls and wooden beams keep a sense of tradition, while the owner, an interior designer, has used her flair to decorate, furnish and equip these properties stylishly and imaginatively.
The two cottages are very similar, each with their own, independent sitting out area, but also with a shared garden.
Casita de Cervera 1 is slightly smaller than 2 and, while centrally heated, does not have a fireplace.
Set up in the refreshingly unspoilt, traditional, "hidden" village of Cervera, in the parish of Cabranes, with a handful of farming neighbours and hens roaming freely, you are tucked in between the Sierra del Sueve, the coast at Villaviciosa and the Picos mountains.
In the heart of cider country and in the area of impressive "Casonas Indianos", though you feel away from it all, at just one kilometre is the quirky village of Torazo with a couple of bars (one a restaurant too) and an excellent bakery; the surrounding villages offer more gastronomic choices, including a wonderful Japanese restaurant!
With gently undulating countryside in the most wooded part of Asturias, the area is immediately inviting for walking and other outdoor activities.
From street to covered, paved porch for sitting out. Stable style front door opens into large open plan living room and kitchen with five windows.
Polished oak staircase to the first floor and landing, bathroom and two bedrooms (one double, one twin).
