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.
