Valle de Manzanedo Cottage Rental Photos and Description
There was a time when a nice conversation around a warm fireplace was an essential part of everyday life and this is something that we try to bring back to our house.
It is said that, in times gone by, the evenings were filled with conversations, stories around the loving warm fire, tales of ancient heroic deeds or of things to come.
They were the twilight under the large candles, without the familiar sound of the television, which is the opium of today´s evenings.
This spirit, which has been lost in the last few decades and that left its mark on the evenings of our rural world, is what we have tried to recover in La Gándara.
There is no TV in the house and the dinners are made in the old style, around a large table, where all the inhabitants of the house sit: guests and owners enjoy a delicious dinner.
The aim is none other than to encourage the tradition, which has almost been forgotten, of speaking peacefully around a table and creating a meeting place.
The house has been receiving travellers for the last 9 years; travellers who are searching for a peaceful location in an ideal setting.
Crespos is a village which has preserved, in an extraordinary way, the values of the traditional architecture of the area of Las Merindades, and our objective was that La Gándara should maintain the same model of respect for its surroundings.
Used for many generations as a shelter for farmers, the house was totally renovated. We spent 2 years on this work, but we believe that it was well worth it.
