The water comes straight from a mountain spring. While we like it, and to date no guests have experienced problems with it, you may wish to consider buying bottled water for drinking.

                                                          So peaceful

                                                          Susan M.Dalkeith

                                                          This was just perfect for us. Peaceful except for distant cow bells and fantastic views across the Picos. Our accommodation was ideal, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and a terrace to sit and read on. A welcome bottle of wine. Lots of walks from the village itself. Potes is a lovely little town and we were there during some sort of fiesta. Supermarkets for all foodstuffs and plently of choice for eating out. The taberna in Tudes was convenient for a drink and meal.

                                                          Uma estadia para recordar por boas razões...

                                                          Pedro N.

                                                          Uma casa muito simpática bastante bem equipada e com uma localização deslumbrante.

                                                          A realidade é ainda melhor do que as fotografias.

                                                          Acordar num local destes é algo que não se esquece.

                                                          Uma experiência que se pode recomendar.

                                                          Apenas um reparo. Na divulgação no site HomeAway, por onde fiz a marcação, seria útil colocar nas fotografias a correspondência com a respectiva casa.

                                                          Querido Pedro,

                                                          Ha sido un verdadero placer pasar estos días contigo y tu maravillosa familia.

                                                          Esperamos volveros a tener con nosotros en un futuro.

                                                          Muchas gracias y un saludo
