It was a bit tortuous getting to the house though the tiny village, but it is in a lovely spot on the edge, overlooking fields and woods and hills. The house itself is large, spacious, and well appointed, with plenty of hot water for bathing, and a large underground cellar garage into which our two cars went easily. There is a shady veranda at the back with a large dining table on which eight of us ate all our meals. There is also brick-built barbecue in the garden, and an indoor fire inside a stove with glass door, all of which were great. The beach is about 15 minutes walk away, on quiet roads and tracks, going past a couple of little bar/cafe/shops on the main road which one briefly crosses, and which rarely had much traffic. The beach is small, incredibly scenic, and not very busy. The situation of the village is convenient, with many places within easy reach in a few minutes by car; Llanes, Posada, and further afield. Llanes is a beautiful, lively, harbour town, and of the of the prettiest towns in the region. Posada is not so scenic, but useful in having a broad general shopping centre, and is only minutes away. Both places have supermarkets handy for the road. We were there for the village fiesta, Santolaya, which included many villagers dressed in traditional costume, and a huge barbecue, and music and dancing that went on all night. There is huge amount to do and see within an hours drive, and I would quite like to go back in order to pick up all the things I didn't do this time around. While we were there, the weather was warm, a little mixed, but never oppressively hot. We had some lovely hot sunny days on the beach, and when a bit overcast, we went around the myriad of interests of the region. We had a a lovely holiday in a beautiful place.
