The apartments are fully independent, spacious, well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The decoration includes murals based on medieval illustrations. There are excellent views of the Picos mountains. Communal areas include a large pool, gardens and a social room. Tudes is sunny and picturesque and its 30-odd inhabitants can still be seen herding their cattle and sheep through its streets. "A quintessential mountain village with its customs and traditional architecure well preserved in a magnificent natural setting" (in the words of the judges of the Village of the Year competition). There is a delightful tavern (under the same ownership as La Casa). The area is a walker's paradise.

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...
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.
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
