  Pleasures

 

Since you’re already taking a few days to relax take advantage of our agreement with Balneario La Hermida where you enjoy their fantastic spa.

Our superb location, at the foot of the Cuera range, between the sea and the mountains, in a landscape full of impressive colors, smells, and orography, will let enjoy everything one hopes for from a vacation: relaxation in your apartment and all that Asturias and Cantabria have to offer just a few meters away.

 

We also have a garden this year where you can learn while you pass the time as well as try some of the delicious products from our land. The mushrooms to be found close to the apartments are an excellent excuse to take a stroll through the countryside. Speaking of food, feel free to ask us about the great restaurants and other places to eat. We can plan a gastronomic tour for you including all of the places where both the food and service are exquisite and the prices are reasonable. We’ll tell you all about our favorite places to get a special meal.
