vraiment très très bien
bonjour ,les toutes premières clés sont un peu difficiles à trouver car le coffre est minuscule mais ensuite tout va très très bien
Super merci encore
Sjofel en niet schoon, tuin vol onkruid. Ligt langs erg drukke weg.
Fantastische omgeving met leuke dorpjes.
Schönes Apartment mit wundervollem Ausblick
Wirklich schönes Apartment in toller Lage in einem Tal unweit von Santander.
Für 3 Personen sehr gut geeignet
Good location and facilities
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.
Would Have Been a Perfect Stay if We'd Arrived to a Clean Place
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.
I feel really sad and disappointed to read this review. We received your email highlighting your concerns with the cleanliness on your arrival and replied immediately. Not having any answer, we sent our housekeeper over who spoke with a gentleman who informed us that you were happy with the apartment and said it was nothing out of the ordinary for a apartment that hadn't been used for a while.
Our cleaners had been in prior to your arrival, but in the week before. They have always been fabulous, and we have never had anything but praise for the cleanliness of the house. In future we will ensure somebody goes in and cleans the day prior to the guests arrival.
It is very rural - we are situated in the middle of one of the most beautiful valleys you'll ever see, and the Internet connection is hit and miss, but is the best we can get.
We are sad you didn't feel you could follow this up with ourselves and needed to leave this review of our home.
Relaxing and comfortable with an amazing view
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!
