Carlos Sr. and Jr. are the perfect hosts. They welcomed us with sparkling wine and Quesada, a local treat. Next, they helped us find an open supermarket and took us to buy groceries. That set the tone for our perfect week-long stay. Our first evening, while dining in the large back patio, Carlos Sr. returned with a group of musicians and we were serenaded (tono). How delightful and memorable! One of our adolescents required medical attention and Carlos Jr. helped us find it. They were responsive but never intrusive.
The house is as pictured, large, clean and well furnished. It sits on a former fig farm and is surrounded by working farms. At night we heard cows mooing and in the morning roosters! It's surrounded by evergreens to provide privacy. It's 10 minutes to Santander and just a few more minutes drive to beautiful beaches of Some and Sardinero. The zoo is about half an hour away.
Everything about this house and our stay was perfect for our family of 8! We were sad to leave.
