    A group of family and friends have spent a very interesting weekend in May in this rural house. The environment of the house is very good, within the Picos de Europa Natural Park, we went to Collado Jermoso, I recommend this route to anyone who likes the mountains a little. From this accommodation you can visit many other interesting places for their beauty. The rural house does not lack anything, cleanliness, architectural details, good rooms, enough bathrooms, equipped kitchen, living room with a fireplace that the owner always tries to have on and a garden with a barbecue.

  • I have spent the first week of November there and I have fallen in love with this accommodation. It does not lack a single detail, it is very large and for me what I liked the most is that each room has its own bathroom and it is something very important. I advise everyone who is interested in a rural house, because apart from the house, it has a perfect natural environment to rest, walk or do activities such as hiking and also take into account the nice people who live there.

  • We have been staying in this fabulous little house in Berlanga Del Bierzo. Manolo and his wife are very nice, their accommodation is very clean and well cared for and they have also arranged everything so that you do not miss anything during your vacation: appliances, WIFI to connect to the internet throughout the house, a large amount of kitchenware , a very nice bedroom with a bed that is nice to sleep in and a double window that isolates very well from noise and outside temperature. We were in March and we were not at all cold, the heating works like a charm.

  • We went for rent to this charming accommodation in the highest area of ​​Soto de Sajambre, away from all civilization but close enough to the town in case any need arises during Holy Week. At the entrance you can park very well. The house has its history, on the stones weights more than 100 years old and in its three heights you can see a spectacular panorama of the area located between mountains. We found the attic part of the superior rooms spectacular.

  • Staying here is always a guarantee of quality and knowing how to treat the client. We always travel a group of 16 people and this was our fourth time but it will not be the last. We usually go in winter, in February, for the matter of going up to ski to the nearby Leitariegos station, but really the area where it is located is to visit at all times of the year. Incredible landscapes, nature, charming towns, excellent gastronomy and above all, sensational people.

  • We chose this rural house because we found it very cozy and in a place lost in nowhere, which is what we were looking for to celebrate our wedding anniversary in May. The place where it is located is remote but has landscapes as if it were a story. We feel at home, because it has everything you may need. Things like board games that you would never imagine finding, music, movies, household items that are very complete and taken care of to the smallest detail to please your guests.

  • The house is beautiful and the children had a great time. They found a trunk full of toys that they loved. You just have to be a little careful with the stairs. They gave us a lot of information about routes and visits. The town is very pretty. From there you can take several walks among centuries-old chestnut trees and near the Cornatel castle. Of course, pure nature, there is no bar. We went to visit Las Médulas, which is very close and worthwhile.

  • Going to Babia or taking an excursion through the Valporquero Caves are just some of the interesting visits that you can do if you visit this area. The rural house is at the foot of the mountains, which is a real luxury for lovers of hiking and if you go in summer you can even take a bath in the river that passes near the accommodation. The lodge is very cozy, although we were always on the road since it was August. We will return in winter to enjoy the movies, the music system and the games in the living room and thus tour the areas that we have left to see.

  • I must say that the rural house and the treatment with Mercedes was great, she welcomed us with muffins, which were delicious. The house is very complete, we did not have any cold in any of the rooms despite renting in November, the kitchen utensils were complete, it had a toaster and dishwasher, very useful to avoid wasting time washing dishes. For my taste it is very well located since you are in the middle of the Picos de Europa park and you are in the middle distance of everything, if you are going to move through the Leonese area and if you go to the Asturian area, the only thing you should add is 30 minutes.

  • We are happy after our weekend rental in this clean and well decorated accommodation. The town of Peñalba in which it is located is unique, I recommend you get lost in its streets, the kindness of its people, its beautiful church and its postcard houses. From the same entrance there are several hiking and cycling routes. Gustavo is a star, he was always attentive in case we needed something during our rest days.

  • Villacalabuey is an ideal place to disconnect and recharge batteries. We went as a family with children and the truth is that it is ideal. Maria the owner is charming and very friendly. Food very good value for money. Everything is homemade and cooked by her with great care, the homemade eggs, her own vegetables, the strawberries from her garden of 10. Let the food be very good, the place is a little away from the chaos of the cirudad, ideal to disconnect in your holidays.

  • We stayed in this rural establishment, and although our stay was too short in December, it was long enough to feel like we were in a dream place. All you have to do is start the path through the Beyos Gorge to reach Soto de Sajambre, to realize the environment that awaits us there. The landscape it offers us is worth contemplating, and it hardly competes with the sky, the mountains, the river Sella flowing through the town, the typical houses, its welcoming inhabitants, the cows and horses grazing in its green meadows, the fireplace On fire waiting for us, and the unquestionable kindness of the owner Silvia and her entire family, who help make your stay unforgettable, in a way that makes you feel "local from Soto", as we do.

There is a lot of tourist information in the house itself with several walks to do, we chose to discover the Faedo forest with its impressive beech trees in Ciñera and we loved it, although there are many other rides to go.

  • My family and I stayed during our holidays in this accommodation, about 8 days in August. The rural house is fantastic, all made of wood, totally cozy, with incredible views. The equipment of the house is exceptional. My twins loved their room, because they were surprised by the decoration. The owners welcomed us and accompanied us, gave us advice to visit, eat and buy, so we liked it so much, that we plan to go back and reserve the 3 houses with our friends this coming fall.

  • We have been rented the last week of July for two couples with two children each in accommodations 1 and 2. We do not usually comment on our stays, but in this case we will say that we agree with the owner Mercedes that we must share the experience to help other travelers. The accommodations have a notable note both for their location and for how they are decorated and the atmosphere they represent, since it is an old house that is very well preserved.

  • Every year, a group of "lifelong friends" choose a place to get together and spend a few days forgotten about the day-to-day routine and enjoy each other. This year we chose León because we really like the province, but of course, staying in these accommodations, the visit to this region has been even better. We have been sharing these intense weekends of friendship and good vibes for years and it is the first time that we have all agreed that the accommodation chosen on this occasion has been, by far, the best of all where we have been.

  • We were in this rural house in August, my daughter, my wife, Bruno (my dog) and I. It was a great experience. The stay is very good, no frills but with everything you need and very clean. The setting is wonderful, looking at Las Medulas. In this house the word silence is the one that best defines it. The owners, Ricardo and Merche, were charming, always willing and eager to please. The environment and the house made evening evenings with the other neighbors, very interesting and enriching.
