General Description This wonderful, traditional, detached, family house, set in 13000m2 of the most lovely, fully enclosed grounds with centenary trees and a river running by, delights the senses.
With a drive leading up to it and with magnificent views of the mountains and lush surrounding countryside, you could not ask for a more peaceful and relaxing spot.
Beautifully and artistically decorated, furnished and presented and very well equipped, your comfort and enjoyment of the ambience are the top priorities of the caring owners.
The three bedrooms upstairs each have their own ensuite bathroom whilst the two bedrooms downstairs share one and the two sitting rooms and attractive covered porch with a dining table for al fresco meals ensure that everyone has their own space.
Though on its own, there are other houses nearby and the historical town of La Cavada on the Rio Miera which was home to the Royal Artillery Foundry (now a museum) for many centuries, is an agreeable walk (1.5 km). There you will find interesting bars, a couple of restaurants, a supermarket and smaller shops and a municipal swimming pool.
The nearest beaches at Somo, Loredo and Langre are eighteen kilometres, the lively city of Santander, a little further and the spectacular valleys of Soba and Ason are within easy reach - great for cycling, walking and touring!
