Overview

About the property

Nestled strategically near the beach, hiking, and town centre (10 min)

It is beautiful and terraced in a private urbanisation in El Convento de Ajo (Cantabria), a quiet neighbourhood. The house is nestled in a strategic place close to the village centre, the beach, and many rural walks and cliff hikes (approximately 10 minutes walking to either option). The house is equipped on a whim and it features a discreet back terrace for sunbathing and enjoying a good barbecue. It has 3 floors, and the last floor is ideal for children because it is open so they can all sleep together. All floors have a bathroom with a shower and according to need, baby cots for children under 3 can be provided. For a reasonable price, we can offer you a guide that will accompany you to visit the most beautiful places and to sample the delicious and varied gastronomy of the area.

About Mikel

We are a family from Basque Country and this chalet is our second residence, which we enjoy in winter as well as summer with our family and friends due to its large capacity. We like to enjoy the tranquillity and the gastronomy of the area, the beach weather permitting, and the long and varied hikes that the area offers.

Mikel purchased this villa in 2008

Why Mikel chose Trasmiera

We acquired this house because it is equipped with luxurious details and offers us the space necessary to enjoy satisfying meals and dinners with our family and friends all together.

What makes this villa unique

The location is the best part of the house. It is close to everything, but it is in a quiet area without bothersome noises. It also offers many safe spaces for children's games. The house is in a beach area, but also designed to be enjoyed in winter (fireplace and heating). It is 1 hour by car from our habitual residence.

Car: not necessary

The rental is located in an outlying district of the village centre among pretty walks along trails between forests and sea cliffs. It is equidistant from the beach and the village centre; approximately 1.5 km (10-15 minutes walking). During summer, there is a surf school on the beach and we offer sea kayaks, with all necessary equipment, completely free of charge. A car is not necessary in town, but it is interesting to drive around the Santander area (30 min by car) and to enjoy all of the big city services and the Cabárceno nature park (open zoo). There is an extensive gastronomy in the area (cooked stews, meats, fish, and top of the line seafood). It is an ideal destination for family travelling, providing many safe play areas for children and many options to enjoy nature (beach, hiking, forests, mountains, bicycles, etc.). In addition, there is the famous gastronomy of the area (delicious, varied and very economic). Ideal in any time of the year because the house is equipped with everything necessary to be comfortable without depending on the weather.

Lovely house, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week in Ajo. The house was very clean and comfortable and the surroundings absolutely beautiful. We loved the beach and the river walk and there are some great places to eat nearby. Thank you Mikel for being a perfect host.

A nice big house, very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 teenage children and both of the grandmothers. The house was very well equipped (though no canoes or beach equipment as listed). The upstairs room was perfect for the children and the downstairs living space was perfect for the six of us. The house was beautifully cool when outside was hot! The location is lovely ... A mile or so walk to the bread shop in town and two good restaurants even closer. The sea beach was fantastic and close and the river beaches were a real bonus. There were lovely walks right from the door. The only disadvantage was that we visited during fiesta week. The music started at 11:00pm and ended at 4:00am all 3 nights. The excitement that went it made sleep even harder. We would definitely recommend both the area and the house, but would avoid fiesta week!

Well equipped large place in a very good location.

We stayed here with our two teenage children and both their grandmothers. The house is very well equipped (though no canoes or beach equipment as listed). The upstairs room was perfect for the kids and the downstairs living space was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us. The house is beautifully cool when it is hot outside! The location is fantastic, a walk of a mile or so to the bread shop in town, and two very good restaurants are even closer. The beach by the sea was fantastic and also close and it was real bonus to explore the river ‘beach’ nearby. There are great walks right from the door. The only disadvantage was that we visited during fiesta week with music that started at 11:00pm and ended at 4:00am on all 3 nights. The excitement that went with it made sleep even harder. I would definitely recommend both the area and the house but would avoid fiesta week!

great large house, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

The house is huge! There is a nice "loft" on the last floor for kids, with toys, tv, etc. Nice small back yard with a BBQ and a lemon tree! The pictures are representative of the house. Here are the points to be noted. These points are not negative, juste informative: the house is on a gated street, you have to park about 50m from the house. Also, the urbanisation is an ensemble of maybe 30 houses, about 1km from the village. The person who opens and closes the house for you is uniligual spanish, but his wife is fluent in French and English. The neighbours are discreet, but you do hear them, the sound insultation between the units could be better. It is in no way an issue, but you have to think about it in regards to your own noise level!

By the way, the closest beach is in 2 sections, one of them is really natural and seems to be a great surfing spot. Happy holidays to all of you!

Muy contentos con la elección de este alojamiento.

  • 5 of 5

Estamos encantados con nuestra estancia en esta casa. No faltaba un detalle, ideal para ir con amigos, familia, muy adaptada para niños de todas las edades. Muy bien situada, desde Ajo nos hemos movido a todas las poblaciones cercanas y a sus playas, muy cerca de Santander. Y los más importante, al llegar la noche hemos podido descansar y dormir plácidamente, han sido unas vacaciones perfectas. Su situación es ideal para practicar Surf, en la playa de Cuberris, las mejores olas de la zona!!!!

Seguro que repetimos. Mikel y Silvia encantadores y nos recibió Gonzalo, muy atento y gran conocedor de la zona.

Hasta pronto!!!!

Yolanda, Gloria, Daniel e Iván.
