Disappointing start to the holiday
When we arrived at the property it was evident that it had not been cleaned from the last tenants. Towels were damp and were hanging haphazardly in the bathroom or on the floor. The linen on the beds had not been changed and some of the beds had not been stripped (although they had obviously been slept in). It is unpleasant to start your holiday having to clean up after someone else. We contacted the owner via the HomeAway email and the HomeAway app but the owner did not reply. This is discourteous. Unfortunately, I could not recommend this property despite it's charms, until the owners can ensure that tenants don't have to start their holiday cleaning up after previous tenants.
Very nice house
Very old and rural house, in beautiful mountainous area. Only disadvantage is its practical location from the coast and other trips for which you have to cross a ridge
A fantastic rural getaway
A very comprehensively equipped, spacious house, full of character. It comfortably accomodated 6 adults and a baby, with plenty of living space.The kitchen is amongst the best equipped I've used in a holiday rental - you can tell that it is a well-loved holiday home. The location is fantastic for mountain walking, yet pretty handy for Potes, the nearest market town. The only downside is having to drive to get your bread most mornings (bakery vans do visit some days). If you're reasonably fit, a bicycle would get you to Potes and back in under an hour, and would be much more pleasant - should we return, I'll bring mine! Thank you for a fantastic time.
Magical rural retreat - we'll be back soon!
We too have had the most fabulous holiday in this wonderful house this August. Based in a working village deep in the heart of the Picos de Europa it is the perfect base from which to explore the region. The house is clean and very well equipped, with comfortable beds and bedding. We were 8 and it absorbed us all easily. I agree wholeheartedly with the positive reviews of the property, but was a bit surprised that one visitor thought it ‘too rustic’! It’s a very sympathetically restored 16th Century rural farm house, with the original, if a little uneven floors (as can be clearly seen in the photographs). The stairs, also original, are wonderful, with wide wooden treads and thick handrails that our children scampered up and down without incident. As to the hamlet, it is a tiny working farming village, high in the mountains of rural Spain – of course there are farm animals housed in barns! I would think that most people who head to this wonderful undiscovered and unspoilt corner of the world, to walk, climb, bird watch or just unwind, will embrace the rustic quality of both house and hamlet, which is integral to what makes this such a special place to stay.
Great outside space but too rustic
We had a 11 day stay here at the beginning of July. The property is very rustic and its situation amongst some semi derelict properties (one housing small livestock) was not what I was expecting. Our stay was not without incident with a mix up with keys delaying our access, having no water a couple of times, the gas stove being out of action for couple of days and the cleaner turning up a day early thinking we had already left!
The floor downstairs is very uneven and the stairs are very steep so wouldn't be suitable if you are young or old and unsteady on your feet. Saying that the kitchen facilities were good and the outside area with the view to the mountains was amazing which is where we spent a lot of the time. Two twin rooms were quite small but the beds were very comfy with quality bedding.
Birdwatching in the area was very good with numerous birds of prey seen from the garden along with flycatchers and woodpeckers.
Overall I thought the property was too rustic and not as I expected.
Herrliche Tage in einem wunderbaren Haus!
Wir verbrachten zwei wundervolle August-Wochen bei tadellosem Wetter im El Empedrado. Ausstattung und Sauberkeit des Hauses, alles war in bester Ordnung, der e-mail-Kontakt mit den Besitzern, von problemloser Einfachheit. Das Haus haben wir so angetroffen wie es die Bilder versprachen, es gab keinerlei negative Überraschungen! Einziger Wermutstropfen waren die Betten, die wohl schon etwas älter sind bzw. nicht mehr heutigen Ansprüchen genügen, da sie für Personen über 1.80 schlicht zu kurz sind. Wir hatten das Gefühl, willkommen zu sein und man hat sich seitens der Besitzer sogar nach unserer Ankunft persönlich erkundigt, ob alles zur unserer Zufriedenheit geregelt sei. Insgesamt ist dieses Haus unbedingt zu empfehlen für Leute, die Gewissheit haben, in einer solchen Einsamkeit ihre Ferien verbringen zu wollen. Für uns war es ideal - jederzeit wieder! Nos gustó muchissimo esta casa, sin duda queremos volver al Empedrador en el futuro!
Unser doppelbett ist 1,9 M. (6 foot 2.75 inches aprox).
