Nice penthouse, within walking distance of everything and in a quiet, rural setting. Possibility to rent adjoining buildings for large groups (maximum 40 people). Bielva is a small village within the Natural Reserve of Saja-Nansa, halfway between San Vicente Llanes. Located just 8 km from the coast, 12 San Vicente de la Barquera, 15 La Franca and Oyambre Natural Park, with some of the most beautiful beaches of Cantabria and Asturias, and 14 km from Panes, where access to the Eastern part of the Natural Park of the Picos de Europa (Potes, Arenas de Cabrales, Cares River Gorge, etc). Also in the valleys of Saja and Nansa, you'll find beautiful villages like Tudanca, Carmona, Barcena Mayor, etc., and most dramatically, in Bielva Cave Soplao recently discovered is, and (they say) the best eccentric stalactites in the world . There are other caves nearby.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

When I chose this House, I did it for the price; I wasn't sure what I would find. But when you get all doubts disappeared; a lovely place; quite quiet, with spectacular views of the mountain, next to the river Nansa, wild in many sections, but with the possibility of walked on a path of fishermen, and 10 minutes from the coast, and the El Soplao cave; It is a cathedral that you can not miss. Long ago that I would not have so happy holidays. Also on new year's Eve, the local people organized a big party.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your words, I'm really happy that you've enjoyed your stay. I know that you have got a lot of friends in the village; everybody remember you and your familly, and are waiting for you next year, maybe next summer. Next time you can visit also another caves, no so spectacular as "El Soplao", but also very interesting, and visit the Picos de Europa mountains, that now in winter is very hard because of the snow, but in summer is a majestic landscape. Finally, you have enjoyed the coast in winter, but in summer you will enjoy also the beaches. Best wishes.

cantabria en estado puro

  • 3 of 5

El apartamento muy limpio. en un pueblo con un entorno espectacular.

Muchos sitios cerca para disfrutar, (cuevas de el soplao, playa de Oyambre, pueblos como Carmona y Barcena mayor. Aurea, que es quien te acoge, un encanto y muy cariñosa.

No nos ha gustado que no tuviera calefacción ( la chimenea del salón no funcionaba, y el modo de calentar eran estufas de butano)

Nos gusta pues para verano

Muchas instrucciones del propietario, de cara a cómo limpiar la casa, el lavavajillas, etc...

Nice village!

  • 5 of 5

Nice village!

Family: 3 adults and 4 kids (12, 9, 7 and 4 years old). We stayed in Bielva one week in beginning of September. The village is small but nice. The people are very kind. The house is located in the center of village. It is completely rennovated and looks perfect. The apartment is on the top floor (under the roof). From there you can observe spectacular landscape on the mountains. The flat itself is also nice: there are three rooms: one bedroom for the couple, another - for kids and in the living room there are two transformable sofas that can be used as beds as well. The kitchen is not big but there you can find all the things you would expect from the kitchen: oven with 4 rings, dish washing machine, washing machine, etc. Small problem was simultaneous use of the dish washer and shower (then the boiler starts heating and together with dish washer heater it leads to the switching off the electricity in the flat as the fuse was relatively weak and triggered to the off-state even at small current). However this was the only problem we had and it did not disturb us a lot.

To stay in Bielva you need a car. There were absolutely no problems with parking. For buying the food use this place N-634, 33A, 39594, Cantabria, Spanien located in 11 km from Bielva. There you can buy nearly everything including the fresh fish and other fresh seafood. The nearest beaches are in approx. 14 km from the house (20 min. of driving; in Pechon). However I recommend not to stay always on the same beach but observe other places with fantastic views. For example, drive to Playa de La Franca, or to small town Llanes.

From the airport of Santander you will reach the house in approx. 55-60 min.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your commentary, I,m happy to read you've enjoyed the stay. I`m sorry for the problem with the electricity power. Now the company have installed a new system with a very strict control; and if you increase the power the cost is very high; thus, we have just the necessary; but no more..

Ideal para descansar y disfrutar la naturaleza

  • 5 of 5

A 10 minutos de la costa. Cerca de la playa de San Vicente de la Barquera, ¡ enorme! y la playa de Oyambre, dentro del parque Natural y una de las mejores de España. En Bielva está la cueva del Soplao, con sus espectaculares techos de estalactitas excéntricas. Comer donde Cesar o en Casa Andrés (en Celucos) son experiencias que no olvidaré, pues ya no quedan sitios así; además levantarme por la mañana y ver Peña Sagra en el horizonte es algo que sigo añorando.

Este acogedor ático es el lugar perfecto para olvidarse de que existe un día a día con estrés y con prisas. Los gallos nos despertaban por la mañana y el pueblo es hospitalario y tranquilo.

El valle del Nansa y el Saja, Bárcena Mayor, Cabárceno, los Picos de Europa... todo a pocos minutos en coche.

Tienes bosques de castaños, robles, hayas a un paso, donde nos hemos hartado de coger castañas y había bastantes setas y hongos; y casi tan espectacular como el Soplao; el Rio Nansa; el paseo habilitado por la orilla, llega casi hasta la costa por parejes sorprendentes y en absoluto frecuentados. Ya quedan pocos paraísos; pero... ¡ Volveré !

Owner's Response: Gracias Pilar y familia por vuestro comentario; me alegro de que hayáis disfrutado de la estancia; y a ver si me decís donde estaban las setas (es broma). Ya me dijo Galán que pasasteis todos los días a por leche recién ordeñada comprasteis algún queso; y disfrutasteis de huevos de corral; en fin, son las cosas que tiene el campo, y que hay que aprovecharlas al venir por aquí. Hasta pronto.

Bielva is located in Madrid Natural reserve of Saja-Nansa; one of the best preserved in Spain. It retains its rural atmosphere, traditional architecture corners full of special character, charming bars and restaurants; Typical beautiful mansions; and its friendly people that make us enjoy these places as if we were at home and definitely repeat. Traditions such as salmon fishing in spring, cattle fairs, the cow native ports, Trevinca; and many other cultural activities in the past, will not experience firsthand the feeling and the expertise of these people.

Other Activities: collecting mushrooms, chestnuts, etc.

Golf: There are golf courses nearby, and the ski resort of St. Anton; If you are interested in these activities, see the possibilities.
