Overview

San Vicente de la Barquera Villa Rental Photos and Description

Total privacy, comfort and cosiness in an overwhelming nature.

Romantic holiday villa, on top of it's own hill, amidst a half acre rural garden that is part of the lustrous green Natural Park of Oyambre and at a 4 minutes drive to a white sand beach of 3 kms width. With great views all around; on the Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa's mountain ridge; the Cantabrian Sea; and the Parque Nacional de Oyambre.

You will appreciate the unmatched privacy and tranquility of the villa Los Milanos amidst an overwhelming nature that combines a lot of green, sea and mountains.

Cantabria is a part of Spain that has hardly been touched by tourism. Its mild climate is absolutely ideal for outdoor activities! During the summer days the temperature stays comfortable and the nearby sea makes the nights nicely cool. At Los Milanos you will sleep well. Guaranteed!

Winter in Cantabria normally does not require much more than putting on a pullover.

Does it ever rain? Yes, that also happens from time to time.

But, day long “English weather” is luckily a rarity!

We are willing to help you!: Help you with what? To get the best out of your holidays

How, e.g.?

We inform and advise you about the possibilities that this region offers. Or, we assist you with arranging things that you need.

We'll make sure that you will find a nice Spanish hot meal ready the day of your arrival and the breakfast for next morning, at no extra costs to you! So after traveling to your holiday house you don't need to go out immediately to shop for food.

Of course we will explain to you the ins and outs of Los Milanos the day you arrive. If you come by car, we will provide you timely with a clear route description to Los Milanos. We advise you about local restaurants and make reservations for you. We can guide you to special points of interest in the region that might otherwise escape your attention. Or simply, we help you where the Spanish language is a problem.

If you come, we wish you already a very nice stay in Cantabria. Los Milanos will be already a good start to that end.

Cantabria = spending time outdoors: Just to mention some possibilities to be outdoors

Beach. 3 Kilometers of white sand beach at a 4 minutes drive down from the hill upon which Los Milanos sits. Because coming back from the beach is going up hill (60 meters) it is recommended to use a car for these trips. There are parking lots directly next to the beach.

Golf: there is an 18 hole golf course located in a beautiful spot, designed by local hero Severiano Ballesteros, just 1 km away from Los Milanos. Buggies/trolleys, clubs, etc are available for rent.

By the way, Seve Ballestero’s beautiful home course is only 40 minutes drive from Los Milanos.

Tennis: 2 outdoor courts, with flood lights, less than 5 minutes away from the house.

Horse riding: there are several stables close by to give you the chance to get to know the area from another point of view.

Biking: through picturesque countryside roads or mountains, there are endless rides to do.

Walking and hiking: as much and as hard as you want. Nature is so beautiful here that you can do just that.

Swimming, surfing, sailing: close to your door, from the nearby peaceful, white sand beaches.

Mountain climbing, wild water canoeing, fishing. In the Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa all this is possible.

Skiing: at 1,1/2 hours.

About Guido van Oppen

Who we are & languages spoken.

Guido van Oppen (1946), Colonel (RNLA) Ret.

For the past 38 years I have held a variety of appointments in and out of the Netherlands, the last two being diplomatic posts in the Dutch embassies in Washington DC and Moscow. We chose Cantabria to settle down after retirement with my wife Rosana and our 3 sons. Here we have found here the best quality of life. Cantabria was indeed love at first sight!

Rosana Ardanaz (1959)

Born and raised in Madrid, I studied History and Geography at the Complutense University of Madrid and English language at Cambridge.

The diplomatic nature of Guido’s jobs abroad enabled me to gain wide experience in offering hospitality to people of many nationalities.

By the way, I also fell immediately in love with Cantabria!

Because we speak the language and know the area well we think we can really help you to enjoy a wonderful holiday!

Apart from English we can also help you in German, French, Dutch & Spanish.

Guido van Oppen purchased this villa in 1997

Why Guido van Oppen chose San Vicente de la Barquera

As the villa sits at it's own hill top you enjoy complete privacy and security. No other roads nearby than the entrance to the villa. The big garden provides a safe playing ground for children.

Outside you enjoy magnificent views at the sea, mountains and the Natural Parc of Oyambre.

Inside Los Milanos offers a cosy and intimate warm atmosphere. You will certainly feel at ease in Los Milanos

What makes this villa unique

Los Milanos is located in an overwhelming nature and is 10 minutes drive away from the motorway that connects France with North West Spain. Interesting cities like San Sebastian, Bilbao and Oviedo are therefore easily reachable from Los Milanos.

All around and close to Los Milanos are ample opportunities to do outdoors sports. Los Milanos' terrace & big garden invites to spending a sunny afternoon reading quietly a book.

Idyllic rural location and exceptional hospitality

  • 5 of 5

With its unbeatable, hilltop location, stunning views of snow capped mountains and endless ocean, Los Milanos wowed us from the moment we arrived. We came looking for somewhere to rest and rejuvenate and we found exactly that. It has a marvelous, peaceful situation, surrounded by rolling hills and meadows - the nearest neighbours are sheep. The beach really is on the doorstep, a short walk or drive away. The house itself has great character - classic Spanish tiled floors, beamed ceilings and shuttered windows - and is very well equipped - we lacked for nothing during our stay. And plenty of hot water for baths and showers !! The welcome from our hosts, Guido and Roseana was exceptional ... including a delicious meal for weary travellers who'd been up from long before dawn. They could not have been more generous with their helpful tips and suggestions, starter pack of essentials (tea, coffee, bread, etc.) and offers of assistance if required. We have no hesitation recommending Los Milanos to future guests.

Just perfect !

  • 5 of 5

If your looking through the website for your perfect holiday home in this area, then look no further - you've found it! Los Milanos is a gem - amazing location, views etc, comfortable accommodation and welcoming hosts!

We stayed at Los Milanos for the second time last October - and, even though we didn't think it was possible, it was better than we remembered - oh, and it was so good we booked to go back this October before we left!! Can't wait to return.

Thank you Guido and Rosana!

Fabulous location, wonderful views, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Los Milanos is as wonderful as it looks on the photographs, the views are perfect and although the village is close by it was totally private and peaceful, we were lucky with the weather and the views were stunning. We were two days late arriving due to unforeseen circumstances, but Guido and Rosana were there waiting for us, leaving us with a wonderful meal and bottle of wine. The house has all the comforts you need for a relaxing holiday, we especially loved the Nursery for our 20 month old grand daughter. We would love to return.

A Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is a most special place. We have stayed at many properties over the years and have found this to be one of the very best. The location and views to the mountains and sea are stunning. The house is extremely comfortable and well appointed and the kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials. The Owners could not have been nicer, greating us upon arrival, showing us the house, and leaving us with a most delicious home cooked meal and local wine. And it is hard to describe the many wonderful intagibles like the sound of the songbirds and the cowbells wafting up on the gentle breeze. This place is truly special. We had a wonderful time and hope to return. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing, rural getaway - and there is so much to see nearby.

Very relaxing holiday in a perfect surrounding

  • 5 of 5

Most has been said already by the many positive reviews which I can only confirm. There is little places that offer such superb beaches, georgeous mountains, beautiful villages so close together. Also the food is delicious!

So the area is a *****, the location is a ***** and the hosts are two ******s helping in any way they can to make you stay an enjoyable and a memorable one!

We will be back next year, which was a no brainer for all of us (kids and adults).

So you better get going to secure your time slot for next year ;-)

Car: recommended

Brittany Car Ferries from Plymouth brings you directly to Santander at 50 minutes Motorway drive from Los Milanos. Low cost Air Carriers fly to nearby airports of Santander and Bilbao. Cantabria has white sand beaches. The nearest is located at 4 minutes drive down hill directly in front of Los Milanos. All kinds of shops, med. facility and pharmacies, post office. Bus and train stations are at 3 km. Visits to nearby (Medieval) cities like Santillana del Mar, Santander, Oviedo, Bilbao (where the Guggenheim museum is located) and San Sebastian are really worth it. Cantabria is # 1 place in Europa to visit caves. E.g. the world famous prehistoric Alta Mira cave with its drawings of bison, deer and bears and its museum sits at 25 minutes from Los Milanos. At 15 kms the 6500 sq km Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa with its mountains, ravines, wild rivers, lakes, bears, wolves, eagles, vultures etc. is an absolute must! For good and affordable gastronomy come to Cantabria!

Other Activities: Wild water canoeing; visits to (pre historic) caves;

Golf: within walking distance from Los Milanos a 18 holes semi professional golf course is located. There are many other Golf courses along the coast reachable by car within 1/2 an hour drive.

Ski: Alto Campo is a ski resort at less than 1 hour driving from Los Milanos. Alto Campo is normally opened during the Winter months.

Gastronomy: the whole region is famous for its very rich gastronomy, and there are plenty of restaurants that the owners can advise you to go to.

No neighbours to be seen or heard. Los Milanos offers a cosy and well furbished sitting room, a kitchen/dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a covered attic where children can play inside, a garage for storage of gear and a terrace/' outside dining room' . There is ample safe parking space on the premises of the house Los Milanos is centrally heated, equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, iron & iron board, TV, video, DVD and radio. The nearby Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa, with its peaks of 2600 m and an area of 6500 sq. kms is an absolute must to visit.
