  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here with our son and daughter-in-law and our grandsons, 1 and 3. The accommodation was excellent, it was clean with comfortable beds and good facilities. The layout of the house meant my husband and myself could have our own bedroom and bathroom without disturbing the rest of the family. The views of the Picos from the back garden were amazing and there were fantastic nearby beaches. There was a good nearby supermarket and petrol station. Car is essential.

On a wet day, we visited the el soplao mine, Fuente de cable car was also good fun. The grandsons had a marvellous time too, especially at Pechon, our favourite beach

In all, a peaceful,relaxing stay in a comfortable house with an amazing position.

Lovely restaurants, which we sampled usually at lunchtime because of the age of our grandsons, Comillas was a favourite.

The owner is extremely helpful and pleasant and answered emails very quickly.

We hope to return here in the next couple of years, we would certainly book this property again

Vacation between Atlantic and high mountains

  • 5 of 5

In July 2011 we spent two very beautiful weeks in this house with two families (6 persons). The house offers all comfort, is clean and lies in calm situation. The small overslept village does not offer purchase possibilities, so that a car is necessary. Abanillas is an ideal starting point for numerous trips to the coast (very beautiful beaches) or into the mountains (magnificent high mountain landscapes). Spanish knowledge facilitates the communication with the house administrator and the neighbours. The house owner (who also speaks good English) is very friendly and forestalling. She reacted fast, competently and uncomplicatedly to all inquiries. We are altogether so content that we rented this year again this house.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this property for its quiet location. The house is very well cleaned and is as in the description. The village of Abanillas is very quiet however 8km away the town of St Vincente has everything required.

Having some Spanish would be a bonus as we hardly met any English speaking people.

We spent 2 weeks with our children, 10,8 and 1, and we all had a great time exploring the nearby fantastic beaches and taking day trips to places like the nearby mountain range - Les Picos, Bilbao, Santander and many many more interesting places. A car is necessary.

Alojamiento estupendo

  • 5 of 5

La casa está en un lugar precioso, muy tranquilo, una pequeña aldea, pero con el coche cerca de los lugares de interés de la zona y de grandes supermercados. Es muy acogedora y amplia, y todo funciona perfectamente. Te sientes como en casa. Estupenda elección.
