Overview

Cabezón de la Sal Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

The 'Palacio de Hualle'. Wonderful gardens, views, close to restaurants

Beautiful, large 17thC villa-manor house, very comfortable and elegant, recently fully renovated to provide an unforgettable summer holiday rental on the green northern coast of Spain. The estate includes a vast park and gardens and a lovely little chapel. The big, beautifully decorated living room with fireplace and the dining room for twelve will provide the perfect setting for a gathering of family or friends. There are five spacious bedrooms as well as a study, TV room, small dining and several terraces, balconies and patios to enjoy the lovely views of green hills and fields with horses grazing nearby. A stream flows at the edge of the property where locals sometimes fish trout. This secluded village has one tiny café to try local sherry and “Serrano” ham, yet shops and restaurants with excellent seafood and meats and are less than 1km.away. Beautiful beaches are a 10 min drive away as are picturesque villages. Hike on ancient Roman Road in nearby hills, climb in Picos mountains.

Opera at Palacio de Hualle:

Opera Palacio de Hualle (Noches Líricas del Palacio de Hualle) will be held for the fifth season August 10 and 11, 2012. A beautiful concert in the covered patio of the Palacio, followed by a reception with a cocktail buffet and wines and sherry sponsored by Gonzalez Byass, producers of Tío Pepe pale dry sherry. Opera Palacio de Hualle is part of the Santander International Festival, one of the oldest and most prestigious summer festivals in Spain. The upcoming concert will be dedicated to baroque French opera. Four singers and five players will perform arias and pieces by composers such as Lully, Rameau, and Charpentier. The stonework of the tower and arches of the 17th C Palacio de Hualle serve as a beautiful backdrop for this exceptional and exclusive evening that celebrates early opera, Cantabrian countryside while opening to the public this beautiful manor house.

The Palacio de Hualle has been featured in various country house and decorator magazines.

Located in tiny village of Hualle: Note about the location: Actually not in Cabezon de la Sal, as the headline notes, but in a neighborhood of Treceño, Hualle. Hualle is a hamlet of about 25 traditional village houses. It is extremely peaceful. Nonetheless, well stocked shops are within walking distance.

Well equipped ,comfortable, clean, individual and original in a beautiful area. Friendly owner and locals. We found much to do within quite a small radius . We loved the sound of cockerels, the horse and donkeys together with cowbells and all the local animals

Time seems to stand still in Hualle

  • 5 of 5
The Gatehouse is a nicely converted barn with two spacious bedrooms and enough living area for our family of four to rattle around in harmoniously. It is tastefully furnished with an adequately appointed kitchen where we could prepare breakfast and light meals. There are plenty of good and well-priced restaurants within a short drive so cooking was not high on the agenda during our stay. The small outside terrace adjoins the entrance to the main manor house but is private enough to sit and enjoy the sunshine, the sound of cow bells and the peace of the village. We were warmly welcomed by Mari the housekeeper who showed us around the house and left us with the keys to make ourselves at home. Although we did not need her during our stay, she lives close by in case of questions or an emergency. The house has a lovely outlook from both sides; one looking over the field of horse and donkeys and to the fields and mountains beyond. The village is tiny and quiet but only a 10 min walk to a good grocery shop and butchers. We enjoyed being 10 mins drive to several beautiful beaches and near to great sightseeing in all directions: Soplao Caves, Altamira Caves, Comillas, Santillana, San Vicente and the mountains. It was hard to believe we were only 45 mins from Santander Airport; when we headed back home after a fortnight, we felt as if we'd been in Hualle for months.
We had a fantastic time here. Time to learn some spanish so we can immerse ourselves further next time.

This house is everything it appears to be and more

  • 5 of 5
This is a case where the house is even nicer than it appears from the photos. We had 3 generations – grandmother, parents, young adults and children – and the house and surrounding area had something for everyone.

The various outside spaces are wonderful for relaxing, reading, eating meals, and playing ball. The huge salon on the 2nd floor was our space for playing games in the evening. The house was well-equipped with all the appliances and kitchen equipment you need for taking care of a large extended family. Having the services of the housekeeper Mari was a real luxury (and she is a lovely person also).

We loved the region also. You can walk to shops, and the beach is a short drive away. Going a bit further, you can visit the Picos de Europa and many lovely villages in day trips.

We have rented homes in many places. This was definitely the nicest place we have ever stayed in.

absolutely beautiful property in magnificent unspoilt countryside and only about 19 minutes drive to a gorgeous and child friendly beach (oyambre).
house was organised so that we all had private areas and loads of beautiful garden space very level and safe. lovely outdoor areas for evening meals and a beautiful dining room inside,
maria the housekeeper is a godsend especially for me as a mother organising children, not having to wash up ,make beds and generally clean up was a real bonus and she cooks very well!
well stocked shops and petrol available within 2 minutes drive so very convenient.
about 1 hour to bilbao if culture infusion needed.
about 1 1/2 hours to picos europas mountains, stunning!
but the beach was a highlight,gold sands clear water and a great restaurant right on the beach.
a magnificent place to stay and we will certainly return.

amazing experience

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Palacio de Hualle was a beautiful life experience for all of our family. From Grandparents who revelled in the history and quaintness of the village, to my children who occupied themselves visiting the long haired sheep, feeding the local horses, wandering by the creek and pretending they lived in a castle. The history and depth of the house oozes from every corner. It is unlikely you will ever find a place that has so much to offer to everyone.

Explore prehistoric caves with wall paintings. The young people will love the superb aquarium in Santander or the nearby safari park. There is a wonderful golf course in Santa Marina and in Oyambre.

Golf: The Real Club de Golf de Oyambre. It is the first golf course created in Spain, in the late 19th C. It was created for the use by the King of Spain, Alfonso XII, and his entourage, who spent some holidays in the area. It is a 9 hole course, right next to the sea, but very pretty.
