About Viveca

This beautiful house belongs to my close friend Nacho, a photographer who lives in Madrid but whose family comes from the village of Cofiño, where he spent all his childhood holidays. As I know the house well, have had excellent experiences renting out our own country house in the Sierra de Gredos, and can attend our guests in several languages, he asked me to give him a hand with the holiday rentals of his country home. I am an art dealers in Madrid, of Dutch-Argentine-American-German origin.

Viveca purchased this house in 2004

Why Viveca chose Parres

Nacho and his brother Alejandro built this house several years ago in the village where their mother's family is from, and where they spent all their summers as children. The house was planned to hold many large gatherings amongst family and friends, and a great effort was made so that all guests can be perfectly comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Perfect house for enjoying enjoying the best of the region in total comfort, from mountains hikes next to the house or in the nearby Picos de Europa, of which it offers breath-taking views, to relaxing days spent on the most beautiful beaches of the Asturian coast.

House needs attention and investment

  • 2 of 5

Only ok....

Cheap uncomfortable beds

Flat cheap pillows

No wine glasses and just 3 breakfast bowls

Kitchenware in very bad condition: knives, chopping boards,

Dirty and ripped cushions and bedlinen

Pretty dirty in general- shower with lots of residual shampoo- ughhh

One set of keys for all guests

Very little electrical potential so lights go all the time if cooking or washing clothes

Tv screen damaged/scratched

Remote control do any work

Exterior furniture could do with some varnish - in bad condition.

In general the house is nice, the views are amazing but the house needs some attention as is falling into mediocre condition. As it is I would if not stAy here again

Maravillosa casa maravillosas vacaciones

  • 5 of 5

No hay mejor cosa que cuando estás de vacaciones y sales todo el día y cuando llegas a casa te sientes bien cómodo en todos los aspectos. Una casa maravillosa de muy buen gusto y muy bien cuidada y con vistas magníficas. Hemos llegado y sentido desde el primer momento cómo si fuera la nuestra, nos han recibido muy bien y la dueña fue muy atenta a cada detalle y que estamos comodos. La ruta hasta la casa tiene muchas curvas pero merece la pena ir hasta allí que está a 10 minutos de Arriondas. El pueblo está muy tranquilo y no tiene nada que algunas casas y un hotel de 5 estrellas justo pegado a casa pero muy tranquilo. Hay diferentes rutas que salen de los pueblos al lado que son maravillosas y sólo si caminas entre los pueblos y bebés del agua de la fuente del otro pueblo al lado merece la pena porque es la mejor agua que he bebido en mi vida. Por la noche la casa es la más tranquila y cómoda. Yo la verdad que nunca he dormido tan bien relajado. No podemos poner ninguna queja la verdad. Fue todo perfecto y repetimos seguro el año que viene.

Un gran lugar y una gran casa.

  • 5 of 5

La casa es perfecta: Amplia, bien mantenida y dotada de todas las comodidades. El entorno es simplemente espectacular,. Un lugar alejado de todo y a la vez, muy cercano.. Además tuvimos suerte con el tiempo. Sin duda, un lugar al que regresar.

Excelente, como dicen en mi pueblo "no le faltaba ni un perejil"

  • 5 of 5

Siempre me he alojado en hoteles y tenía un poco de miedo de hacerlo en una casa rural, pero la experiencia ha sido muy buena. Hemos pasado una semana fantástica, la casa es espectacular, no le falta un detalle. Las vistas maravillosas, además ha coincidido el rally de Llanes que ha pasado por la misma puerta, nunca he vivido este acontecimiento tan cerca.

La recomiendo.
