This secluded village has one tiny café to try local sherry and “Serrano” ham, yet shops and restaurants with excellent seafood and meats and are less than 1km.away. Beautiful beaches are a 10 min drive away as are picturesque villages. Hike on ancient Roman Road in nearby hills, climb in Picos mountains.

A lovely property in a good location

A great place to spend a few days or even a week. Lots to do in the area and a well appointed property. Nice outside space too.

Lovely Apartment in a real rural village

  • 4 of 5

Overall everything here was great. Clean and well presented.

The location is easy enough to find, and handy for day drives to the Picos Mountains, Altamira Caves, Santillana del Mar and the beaches at Comilla and Cobreces.

My only comment would be; it would be nice to turn the outside lights off after 11 pm so that we could experience the real dark of a rural area.

Simply marvellous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Gatehouse which was just not long enough. My 9 year old son Sebastian just said "Time flies when you are having fun."

The home from home is very well equipped with everything we needed and we loved the peaceful, beautiful location in the small village of Hualle. It's a short walk to the nearest restaurant and a short drive to a choice of marvellous, Green Coast beaches and historic towns.

The nearest station on the Feve Railway is Treceno, about a mile away, where you can catch trains to Oviedo and Santander with lots of interesting places in between.

We hope to return very soon.

Thanks you so much Margaret.

Best wishes,

David, Julia and Sebastian

Charmant gepflegte Ferienwohnung in einem altwürdigen Palacio

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Feriendomizil in einem kleinen rustikalen Örtchen mit zuvorkommender Betreuung. Besuchenswerte Gastronomie befindet sich in ca. 2 km Entfernung; ein gut sortierter Supermarkt (Mercadona) ist in 5 Autominuten zu erreichen; das Meer (Comillas) ist 20 Autominuten entfernt, schöne Bergwanderungen beginnen praktisch vor der Haustür. Man erreicht viele schöne Anlaufpunkte (Cueva de El Soplao, Valle Rio Nansa, San Vicente de la Barquera, Playa de Berellín, Cueva de Altamira, Santillana etc.) sind in 30 bis 50 Autominuten zu erreichen. Wir waren begeistert. Vielen Dank an die Eigentümerin Margaret Jova.

Naturaleza pura

  • 4 of 5

Estuvimos alojados en el apartamento para 4 personas. Muy cuco es el apartamento, el cual está rodeado de prados verdes, colinas que te abrazan y de unos vecinos muy sentía como en casa. Lo mejor del lugar es que hay mucha paz y tranquilidad, estás en naturaleza pura. Y si quieres entretenimiento está muy cerca de todos los sitios típicos que hay que visitar: Santillana del Mar, Santander, San Vicente de la Barquera, Comillas, etc...todo a 30 minutos máximo.

Golf: The Real Club de Golf de Oyambre. It is the first golf course created in Spain, in the late 19th C. It was created for the use by the King of Spain, Alfonso XII, and his entourage, who spent some holidays in the area. It is a 9 hole course, right next to the sea, but very pretty. Rental of equipment is available.
