Wirklich schönes Apartment in toller Lage in einem Tal unweit von Santander.
Für 3 Personen sehr gut geeignet
Used the apartment as a base for exploring the Green Coast of Northern Spain. Despite my wife's back problems which arose just before we arrived, we really enjoyed our stay.
Nearby Lierganes has plenty of facilities to fulfil needs, including a very helpful Doctor's Surgery!
We visited the spectacular mountain passes just 15km up the road from the flat, as well as Potes in the Picos Mountains, and some local beaches (Galziano in particular was great).
The top flat was worth the climb each day as the view from the balcony was great, and good for supping an evening glass of beer or wine according to the heat of the day. Easy to see Vultures and even an eagle soaring overhead, as well as small garden birds flitting back and forth, with a nightly owl calling too while we could star gaze without the usual UK light pollution.
The bed was comfortable and the provision of washing machine and tumble dryer in the basement was helpful after so many hot days.
The main bug-bear was the heat in the flat from being on the top floor.... opening the Velux roof windows was some help but that would then let various bugs in once the lights were on.... Overall still well worth while staying here.
While it is obvious the owners have taken great pains to restore and re-make a beautiful farmhouse, some obvious attention to detail is lacking. Keeping in mind that this farmhouse is in the countryside and in a rustic setting, we were still disgusted to find dead bugs, spiders and mice droppings throughout the apartment (even on the beds, around and on the sofas). Our friend, had the choice of sleeping on stained/dirty futon or the small "cabin bed" area which had spiders and dead bugs around it. The Internet barely worked, so we could not get in touch with the owners or their helpers in time enough to make it worth bothering them. Although these apartments are well priced for visiting the area, having to clean an apartment upon arrival after travel is less than ideal. Putting screens on the windows to keep out the bugs and making sure the apartment is cleaned and checked right before guests arrive (as it turned out, running into the cleaning person right before departing, our apartment was vacant a while before we came) seem like obvious and simple things the owners could do to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay.
It is a real shame to give a review like this when the area and the house are beautiful and well worth a visit.
This is a beautiful apartment, comfortable and homely with much more space than expected. The views are amazing and the area could easily fill many days of exploration not to mention the diversion of the great food and drink options available. Thoroughly recommend!
Stayed 7 nights and enjoyed every one. After visiting nearby towns...not so nearby but we had a car and explored a lot we couldn't wait to get back and relax with the awesome view. We stayed at the Besaya on the main floor. Very clean and had all the amenities. We had a bbq one night and enjoyed our bottle of tempranillo thinking we were in heaven. The owner provided us with perfect instructions for the keys so....no problems. The area is so peaceful and relaxing that we hated leaving on our journey. I could go on forever but in brief, this is the view that adds 10 years to your life!!!!!
We stayed here with our teenage daughters in July 2010. We all loved the layout of the apartment and felt really comfortable as it is furnished well and has all the amenities one needs.
We had benefited from a stay in the ground floor apartment earlier and enjoyed the different characters of each. We were able to visit the coast within half an hour of the apartment and the beaches are so unspoilt and beautiful.Equally,the drives and walks in the mountains were really enjoyable and relaxing.Lierganes is a charming spa town with a beautiful old centre.
There is so much to see in this area and we still didn't have time to explore the caves and the nearby town of Santander...we hope to make a return visit and definitely recommend it to others!
