The Palacio is lovely...it was more beautiful than the photos! We spent a wonderful week at the Casona Asturias. We were welcomed by Pili, who attends to the property, and although we speak limited Spanish and she spoke no English, we were able to communicate well. She was delightful in explaining all of the amenities of the house and kitchen. The house was emaculate with fresh hydrangea in vases in many of the rooms. The casona was spacious and eclectically decorated. We love to cook, and found the kitchen to be well appointed. There was even a dishwasher! Additionally, there was a new washer and dryer in the laundry room, plus an indoor clothesline for delicates. The most stunning room is the sitting room off of the master bedroom. The view is outstanding and we had many lovely evenings sharing wine and watching the kayaks on the river below.The location of Palacio is perfect. We were close to many interesting and fun small towns and beautiful beaches. We enjoyed kayaking on the river and hiking nearby. There were a variety of restaurants to chose from very close to the small village of Torano as well. Isabel and Marta have a book with their favorites (including menus and directions). Isabel and Marta were so gracious as to stop by on our last day to offer us some great restaurant recommendations in San Sebastian where we were next headed. We often rent homes in the countries we visit and this was an exceptional experience. We look forward to returning and bringing friends and family!
