Overview

About the property

Total privacy, comfort and cosiness in an overwhelming nature.

Romantic holiday villa, on top of it's own hill, amidst a half acre rural garden that is part of the lustrous green Natural Park of Oyambre and at a 4 minutes drive to a white sand beach of 3 kms width. With great views all around; on the Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa's mountain ridge; the Cantabrian Sea; and the Parque Nacional de Oyambre.

You will appreciate the unmatched privacy and tranquility of the villa Los Milanos amidst an overwhelming nature that combines a lot of green, sea and mountains.

Cantabria is a part of Spain that has hardly been touched by tourism. Its mild climate is absolutely ideal for outdoor activities! During the summer days the temperature stays comfortable and the nearby sea makes the nights nicely cool. At Los Milanos you will sleep well. Guaranteed!

Winter in Cantabria normally does not require much more than putting on a pullover.

Does it ever rain? Yes, that also happens from time to time.

But, day long “English weather” is luckily a rarity!

We are willing to help you!: Help you with what? To get the best out of your holidays

How, e.g.?

We inform and advise you about the possibilities that this region offers. Or, we assist you with arranging things that you need.

We'll make sure that you will find a nice Spanish hot meal ready the day of your arrival and the breakfast for next morning, at no extra costs to you! So after traveling to your holiday house you don't need to go out immediately to shop for food.

Of course we will explain to you the ins and outs of Los Milanos the day you arrive. If you come by car, we will provide you timely with a clear route description to Los Milanos. We advise you about local restaurants and make reservations for you. We can guide you to special points of interest in the region that might otherwise escape your attention. Or simply, we help you where the Spanish language is a problem.

If you come, we wish you already a very nice stay in Cantabria. Los Milanos will be already a good start to that end.

Cantabria = spending time outdoors: Just to mention some possibilities to be outdoors

Beach. 3 Kilometers of white sand beach at a 4 minutes drive down from the hill upon which Los Milanos sits. Because coming back from the beach is going up hill (60 meters) it is recommended to use a car for these trips. There are parking lots directly next to the beach.

Golf: there is an 18 hole golf course located in a beautiful spot, designed by local hero Severiano Ballesteros, just 1 km away from Los Milanos. Buggies/trolleys, clubs, etc are available for rent.

By the way, Seve Ballestero’s beautiful home course is only 40 minutes drive from Los Milanos.

Tennis: 2 outdoor courts, with flood lights, less than 5 minutes away from the house.

Horse riding: there are several stables close by to give you the chance to get to know the area from another point of view.

Biking: through picturesque countryside roads or mountains, there are endless rides to do.

Walking and hiking: as much and as hard as you want. Nature is so beautiful here that you can do just that.

Swimming, surfing, sailing: close to your door, from the nearby peaceful, white sand beaches.

Mountain climbing, wild water canoeing, fishing. In the Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa all this is possible.

Skiing: at 1,1/2 hours.

About Guido van Oppen

Who we are & languages spoken.

Guido van Oppen (1946), Colonel (RNLA) Ret.

For the past 40 years I have held a variety of appointments in and out of the Netherlands, the last two being diplomatic posts in the Dutch embassies in Washington DC and Moscow. We chose Cantabria to settle down after retirement with my wife Rosana and our 3 sons. Here we have found here the best quality of life. Cantabria was indeed love at first sight!

Rosana Ardanaz (1959)

Born and raised in Madrid, I studied History and Geography at the Complutense University of Madrid and English language at Cambridge.

The diplomatic nature of Guido’s jobs abroad enabled me to gain wide experience in offering hospitality to people of many nationalities.

By the way, I also fell immediately in love with Cantabria!

Because we speak the language and know the area well we think we can really help you to enjoy a wonderful holiday!

Apart from English we can also help you in German, French, Dutch & Spanish.

Guido van Oppen purchased this villa in 1997

Why Guido van Oppen chose Costa Cantabria

As the villa sits at it's own hill top you enjoy complete privacy and security. No other roads nearby than the entrance to the villa. The big garden provides a safe playing ground for children.

Outside you enjoy magnificent views at the sea, mountains and the Natural Parc of Oyambre.

Inside Los Milanos offers a cosy and intimate warm atmosphere. You will certainly feel at ease in Los Milanos

What makes this villa unique

Los Milanos is located in an overwhelming nature and is 10 minutes drive away from the motorway that connects France with North West Spain. Interesting cities like San Sebastian, Bilbao and Oviedo are therefore easily reachable from Los Milanos.

All around and close to Los Milanos are ample opportunities to do outdoors sports. Los Milanos' terrace & big garden invites to spending a sunny afternoon reading quietly a book.

Notes:
This is first of all a family home. We (5) have lived here comfortably ourselves for years! You will find everything you need. The house has not been down scaled for renting purposes! The 'garden' is almost 5400 sq meters. It's big! Sheep keep the grass short in the larger part. The garden together with trees and shrubbery provides all the privacy you could wish for! No neighbours to be seen or heard. Los Milanos offers a cosy and well furbished sitting room, a kitchen/dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a covered attic where children can play inside, a garage for storage of gear and a terrace/outside dining room. There is ample and safe parking space on the premises of the house Los Milanos is centrally heated, equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, iron & iron board, Sat. TV, video, DVD and radio. The nearby Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa, with its peaks of 2600 m and an area of 6500 sq. kms is an absolute must to visit.

Excellent in every respect

  • 5 of 5

We have experienced in Los Milanos wonderful classic summer holidays spending a lot of time on the exposed beautiful estate, the marvelous beaches as well as in the mountains. We do have appreciated the warmth and friendliness of Guido and Rosana very much. Their organisation was in every respect outstanding!!

You always had the feeling that someone is in the background in the case of need for help and assistance. When our little son had to see a doctor Guido was there! So we experienced more the hospitality and generosity of friends than the helfulness of a landlord. Guido and Rosana not only do an extremely good job, they let you feel their passion for the estate and the people coming to live there.

Nils and Monika and Fidel.

Herbsturlaub 2016

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden liebevoll empfangen. Ein grosses Dankeschön an Guido und Rosana, welche uns mit kleinen Köstlichkeiten begrüßt haben. Das Haus abgelegen auf einem Hügel, mit Blick auf Meer, Felder und Berge - einfach wundervoll. Jeder Atemzug ein Stück Erholung! Auch im Haus mangelt es an nichts! Es ist liebevoll eingerichtet und man fühlt sich von Anfang an sehr wohl. Auch in der Küche kocht und lebt man gerne, die Grundzutaten zum Kochen und diverse Küchenutensilien sind ausreichend vorhanden.

Wir hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub - vielen Dank!

Naturaleza y vistas

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado en los Milanos 15 días en agosto y hemos estado increíble de bien instalados: la casa es confortable, está en un paraje maravilloso, y muy cerca de la playa, sin vecinos con una sensación de naturaleza y tranquilidad impresionantes. Muy recomendable!

Car: recommended

Brittany Car Ferries from Plymouth brings you directly to Santander at 50 minutes Motorway drive from Los Milanos. Low cost Air Carriers fly to nearby airports of Santander and Bilbao. Cantabria has white sand beaches. The nearest is located at 4 minutes drive down hill directly in front of Los Milanos. All kinds of shops, med. facility and pharmacies, post office. Bus and train stations are at 3 km. Visits to nearby (Medieval) cities like Santillana del Mar, Santander, Oviedo, Bilbao (where the Guggenheim museum is located) and San Sebastian are really worth it. Cantabria is # 1 place in Europa to visit caves. E.g. the world famous prehistoric Alta Mira cave with its drawings of bison, deer and bears and its museum sits at 25 minutes from Los Milanos. At 15 kms the 6500 sq km Parque Nacional de los Picos de Europa with its mountains, ravines, wild rivers, lakes, bears, wolves, eagles, vultures etc. is an absolute must! For good and affordable gastronomy come to Cantabria!

Other Activities: Wild water canoeing; visits to (pre historic) caves;

Golf: within walking distance from Los Milanos a 18 holes semi professional golf course is located. There are many other Golf courses along the coast reachable by car within 1/2 an hour drive.

Ski: Alto Campo is a ski resort at less than 1 hour driving from Los Milanos. Alto Campo is normally opened during the Winter months.

Gastronomy: the whole region is famous for its very rich gastronomy, and there are plenty of restaurants that the owners can advise you to go to.
