Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Cantabria (and Northern Spain), via ferry from Portsmouth. It was pretty hard finding villas to rent as the area is obviously much less frequented by UK tourists than Southern Spain. We booked this property based on reviews and availability and hoped it was going to be great, given was fairly expensive.

And it WAS! A superb holiday home. We have stayed in many holiday homes and villas all over the globe and would say this one was the best and worth the extra money due to its character, space, location and feeling of being in a home, not a holiday let.

As another review says, the pictures do not give it justice. Spread over 3 floors, the space is huge and the 5 of us had plenty of space. Our 2 girls use the bedrooms and bathroom on the top floor, but also loved using the unique studio above one of the second floor lounge areas. All the bedrooms very spacious, fantastic views to the sea from many rooms. Ground floor with kitchen and big dining room was great, in particular the huge window in the dining room giving great views down to the sea, lovely for when eating in.

We did not use the outdoor living area too much but when we did it was great, and the gardens gave plenty of space for playing games with the children and getting in some sunbathing.

5 minutes drive to Meron Beach, a great beach with plenty of parking (always parked easily even in August) and lots of space, with good waves on some days for body boarding. Use magicseaweed.com to check surf reports if you plan to surf or board there as during our time varied from 1 foot to 6 foot waves!

The location is also good for getting to lots of other fun places. We had very active vacation with caving (we did the adventure option at Soplao caves, well worth booking), cycling (I found great 20 miles route from the home along the coast via Comillas and lovely inland villages), river canoeing (used Adventure Trophy from Panes), bodyboarding and some hiking. Also only 40 minutes into central Santander along quiet motorway. And driving around the Picos de Europa was very special, under an hour from home to Potes.

Rosi, the cleaner, lived nearby and was very discrete, coming each day at 11am to clean up the house. And her son did good job of translating so we managed to communicate via a mix of English and Spanish. Definitely pays to have some basic Spanish in this area as not a lot of English spoken, even at tourist sites.

So I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this amazing home.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely astonishing! We choose this place for vacation with our children and friends (2 x 2+2). First of all, this house doesn't look like a rental house. We felt there like we were visiting someone's private house. Atmosphere is unique... Furniture, paintings, sculptures, everything - posh and cozy. Our children were amazed, too. They found this place magical, they spent hours in the garden, in their secret places. Last but not least, we had wonderful support - Rosi. She was very helpful and she's a great cook. We'll come back next year, for sure!

Magnífica Casona

  • 5 of 5
Una casona magnífica!!! todos los muebles preciosos y la vajilla, cubertería y cristalería amplias y bonitas.
Hemos estado estupendamente con nuestros hijos y nuestros nietos!! creo que repetiremos y si puede ser más tiempo mejor.
Las vistas desde el dormitorio principal y desde el comedor espectaculares!!
El caseto de fuera es el sitio ideal para estar tanto si llueve como si hace buen tiempo.
Rosi fantástica, una buena cocinera y una persona muy agradable!!
La casa estaba en perfecto estado y limpísima y a diario Rosi limpia la casa y cambio la ropa de la casa a mitad de nuestra estancia.
Por supuesto que recomendaría esta casa a algún amigo.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
As the photos on this page show, it is a marvelous place. The best thing is that in reality it is even better. I could easily replace the pictures with even more beautiful ones. The house is loved by the owners, and you could feel this love in every corner of the house. Comfortable furniture, a surprising collection of lamps and original art make you feel at home. There has been no attempt to save the beautiful things collected by the owners from possible guest's abuse.

It made us very respectful towards the house and its belongings. A very nice balance between a very old house and classic-modern furniture makes you feel at home.

That balance you even find in the garden, where the controlled beautiful wilderness of non cut grass full of flowers is balanced with the spaces where the grass is nicely cut.

Fully equipped kitchen, and that what din't work properly was replaced the very same day by Rosi, who cleans the house on a daily base, cooks great meals for reasonable prices if you like and will help you find your way around. And ready to do the things for you that we considered one of our tasks, as cleaning the barbecue after using it.

Lots of unspoiled beaches at a 5 minutes drive, even at 20 minutes walking distance you find a vast one.

We were very lucky with the weather, only one early morning drizzle 'spoiled' a sunny week, which of course influences this positive story. But I confess that I am ready to come back one day in autumn, because it makes you appreciate the house itself even more. In spite of the good weather there has not been one little reading corner that we didn't use, nor one lamp that we didn't light.

Well, you already understand that we loved it from the start and felt sorry when we had to leave the place, for we rented it only for one week.

At last, I want to express my true satisfaction about the contact with the owner (who we never met). Quite informal in a positive way: always attentive and friendly. You really feel treated well and welcome. Things are obviously thought of from the perspective of the client.

In our second Abritel booked house in France) that was unfortunately not the case. That made us appreciate the treat received near San Vicente de la Barquera even more. Thank you Haydee.

FIN DE SEMANA

  • 5 of 5
Hemos pasado un fin de semana increible en la casa Las Brañas, una casa preciosa, puesta al detalle, y no le falta absolutamente de nada. Quiero hacer mención, a la atención recibida por parte de Rosi, ( es la amabilidad en persona),a la limpieza de la casa.
La casa dispone de varios espacios que te invitan a viajar en el tiempo,....

Es una casa Unica. Nos ha encantado, estoy convencida que vamos a repetir.
