Province Cantabria and Asturias Village Renedo de Cabuerniga Location Type Village
General Description For those looking for something special, this is a beautiful house in a beautiful location.
A lovingly converted barn and mill, it stands in delightful, carefully maintained, extensive enclosed grounds, set in the nature reserve of Reserva de Saja with the River Saja running by, offering trout fishing (with a license) and swimming a little further upstream.
With a cobbled courtyard with a covered porch and a terrace with lovely views to the ruins of the old mill and hills and a BBQ area, sitting and dining out here are particularly special.
Great care has been put into rebuilding, furnishing and equipping this property, with the best local materials and antiques, to make a very comfortable and charming home. Many of the ceilings are beamed, floors are tiled or of polished oak. Interesting paintings, wall hangings and ornaments create a lived in feel. Central heating and electric blankets make it an excellent choice for an out-of-season holiday.
A cottage adjoins the main house, but with a separate entrance. The owners live here, never intrusive, but, on hand to share their knowledge of the area and help out if needed.
Should you require extra cleaning or a meal to be cooked for you, this can be arranged locally.
This makes a great base for exploring this very beautiful part of Cantabria with gently rolling hills, rising to the sierra behind, much of it wooded, and the villages have fine examples of regional architecture in their mix of palacios and farmhouses.
There is good walking and cycling in the locality and the local hotel (a five minute walk) has a spa, indoor pool and outdoor pool open to the public. The market town of Cabezon de la Sal is a fifteen minute drive and the coast with its beautiful beaches forty minutes.
NB_The owners will accept pets. Accommodation Description Front gate opens from lane into the drive, garden and a cobblestone courtyard with covered porch area with garden furniture.
Front door from the courtyard into a small hall and from this a further door into a high ceilinged, spacious living room with sitting and dining areas. French doors from this into the garden.

"The house was absolutely magnificent and the gardens were absolutely stunning. "
This was our first time to Cantabria and we loved it, from country walks to waterfalls, Cueva el Soplau, Santillana del Mar (and the labyrinth nearby), Barcena Mayor - all fantastic.
Thanks also for the North Spain and Vamos apps - they were super helpful too."
"Excellent property, ideally described on the web site, exactly what we expected.
The property was ideal for a large (8 )group of friends.
We had plenty of space for everybody in a very peaceful location.
We rented bikes and cycled several days and also walked in the country side, a great location for those that like the countryside. We were also within driving distance of the beaches and Santander City.
Great holiday location in a beautiful part of Spain", (Client 2017)
