Casa Marypaz 1
Cantabria and Asturias
Location Type


General Description
A 300 year old Asturian house with two traditional raised granaries (hórreos), set in a quiet and idyllic location, surrounded by mountains, woodlands and magnificent scenery.

The house has been lovingly restored and has a very cosy feel, with a combination of rustic charm and all the modern amenities you need for a perfect stay. The granaries in front of the house serve as an outdoor covered terrace with table, chairs and barbecue, and as a picturesque and original carport. The small garden to one side of the house is ideal for relaxing with a good book or simply enjoying the tranquility and peace of the surrounding countryside.

Although just a 20 minutes' drive to the beach and eight kilometres to the popular town of Posada, you are in a very peaceful spot here, ideal for keen walkers who will find a variety of scenic routes including a two kilometre long walk through a private forest. The Cares Gorge, one of the star attractions of the Picos de Europa, is just half an hour’s drive and the Lagos de Covadonga within easy reach.

Ideal for those who enjoy country life, but want to be within easy reach of the lovely beaches and fishing villages nearby. And should you be hungry on your arrival, then you can always satisfy your hunger with some of the homemade cake and jam (and if the hens are up for it, even some eggs) that will be waiting for you.

Accommodation Description
The front door opens into an open plan living room with dining table for 6 people, a 3 seater sofa and three armchairs, a fully equipped kitchen with an old cooking stove, solid wooden cabinets and granite countertops. Upstairs a hallway leads to three double bedrooms, one with ensuite, and another complete bathroom with a bathtub. Two bedrooms have access to either a balcony or a small garden, and one has a French balcony.

Outside, apart from the small garden that is accessed from either the bedroom or climbing a few steps, the two granaries offer space for outdoor dining and relaxing, and for parking the car. There is also a small chapel bordering the garden, and located at a convenient distance from the house, an area with swings and basketball hoop to be shared with any guests staying in another property nearby.

The property is part of an old farm, once owned by a rich Cuban family, comprising a couple of other houses, including the home of the owners and a woodland with a 2km long walking trail, so there is plenty of space for the kids to play and run around without having to worry about the traffic.
