Totally as expected!
Wonderful small town in Cantabria to use as a base. The house is comfortable, clean, and perfectly situated. Everything was as represented, comfortable and basic. The owners were very gracious and helpful with minor issues such as changing the propane tank to heat water and turn the electricity back on after the fuse box tripped. They also gave great suggestions for nearby visits, including the prehistoric caves. Our eight-day stay (2 senior couples) in early May was as expected, somewhat rustic and genuine. Highly recommend.
Glad you enjoyed your stay in Puente viesgo. If you need any more advice on Spain, just ask. We've done it all.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation in Europe.

This is a lovely cottage in which to stay. Denise and Andrew were really helpful with ideas and tips for our stay. The property is really well situated for trips out to loads of places within very easy (and longer) travelling distances for historical, cultural and activity based days. They are right on the green cycle route which stretches in both directions taking in views, rivers and countryside is suitable for all ages. The cottage has everything you need for a family stay and we eeally appreciated the cool airy interiors after long hot days out. Highly recommended.
A wonderful cottage.
From the very first, staying here was a relaxing time. We were met by the owners friend Fernando, the only spaniard we have ever met who could speak English with a scouse accent. The cottage was excellently and tastefully decorated. A comfy lounge, kitchen/dining room and a downstairs bedroom. The village itself was a great place with many restaurants and interesting river walks. For groceries we recommend a short trip to the Lupo supermarket in Vargas, about 10 mins drive. Don't miss a trip to the ice cream shop for the cheese flavour, sounds strange but it's absolutely fantastic. You'll really enjoy your stay here, Andy & Denise are great hosts even if they support Liverpool F C!
All in all a wonderful vacation.
Real village home
Lovely little authentic house in a delightful village. Loads of things to do if like us you enjoy sightseeing. Particularly loved the prehistory and caves in the village and at the amazing Altimira nearby. Wonderful spa over the road. Andy and Denise very helpful settling us in with lots of good local info. Wifi a bit dodgy at times but it's the countryside! All in all, a good week!
Peace and quiet in a lovely village
We stayed a total of 15 days and it was a totally relaxing atmosphere in a lovely village. There is everything you need in Puente viesgo but the much larger Torrelavega is only 10 mins away, if you fancy shopping.
We loved it and would do it again tomorrow, if it were possible.
Totally exceptional and worth every penny.
Mil gracias a Andy y Denise ..... Un abrazo fuerte!!!
Really glad that you enjoyed your stay. Lovely and warm for April too!
Hope to see you all again soon.

Puente Viesgo, charming village
We loved our time in Puente Viesgo. The village is very small, but there is a wealth of places to visit nearby, and the caves in Puente Viesgo are much better than the Altamira Nuevo Cave. The house accommodated four of us easily, and although Andy and Denise were in the U.K., Fernando took good care of us.
The tiny autonomous region of Cantabria in northern Spain is one of the Iberian Peninsula’s hidden jewels and largely overlooked by the mass market tourist industry. Most British holidaymakers arriving by ferry at the Cantabrian capital of Santander only catch a glimpse of this gorgeous region through the car window as they pass through en route to one of the coasts. The Cantabrian climate supports a breath taking array of landscapes ranging from spectacular mountains bedecked with flower-filled meadows to lush green valleys and dense forests which provide a safe haven for some of the country’s few remaining wild wolves and bears. There are plenty superb sandy beaches which never suffer the over-crowding of Spain’s eastern and southern coastlines, hidden coves and pretty fishing villages to be found along the Cantabrian coastline. Fresh seafood is prominent on local menus and there are some exceptional dining spots to be found locally.
Golf: Golf - Abra de Pas (Mogro) only 20 min. away.
