Beautiful and original apartment rustic style built on the ground floor of a PAS cabin. Spectacular views over the village of Esles and the Valley of Cayón, silence and tranquility, ideal to relax and enjoy nature.

The space

Spring is finally here! After a long winter of cold, rain and snow, the Sun and the warmth can be felt in Cantabria. Dairy cows and heifers again populate the meadows of the Valley and the slopes, grazing the tender shoots of new-born grass. Birds of all sizes and color range from here to there busy in the construction of their nests. The hens return to lay eggs, animated by the light of the Sun, and we have seen the first swallows!

Yes, spring is here...

Cosy, genuine Spanish feel. Incredible view. Quirky Spanish touches in the decor made it very individual. Lovely part of the world. Loved the cows with the soft bells.

Stayed for 3 nights after getting the ferry from UK to Santander. It was perfect. Easy to find. Big house and bigger than photos. Amazing view across the hills. Woke up one morning to see we were above the clouds. Steep hill up but did it twice walking and it makes you fitter! 30 mins walk down to village to enjoy a beer and wine. Helena was lovely. Friendly and enjoyed speaking English to us. Everything we needed in the house. Including eggs and cake! Lots of animals around like her giant dog, the chickens and the funny geese!! It was a great start to our 5 week Spanish holiday. I would recommend going there for a quiet relaxing stay away from the crowds.

We had the most amazing stay with Helena. The beautiful pictures of the house and views do not do the place justice. The views form the house are spectacular in all weathers and from all angles. We traveled with our eight year old, six year old and 6 month old and they all really enjoyed their stay. Helena has lovely dogs(which even my son liked), geese and chickens and great space for the kids to play in. It was a very relaxing place for our family. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The location of the house is very secluded up a hill but the lovely village of Esles is actually just a short drive. Helena is a really excellent host and very nice person. She was there to greet us on our arrival and also gave us fresh eggs, fresh milk straight from the farm and lovely local cake. She also gave us recommendations for day trips to the caves and the safari park which were both fantastic. She also recommended a beautiful beach which was brilliant for the kids and very beautiful. Esles is actually a great central location to explore the whole of Cantabria. It was our first visit but we will definitely be going back. Helena was an exceptional host and if I could give her a higher rating I would. We LOVED staying with her.

We had a magical stay in Helena's wonderful cottages in Esles. I can highly recommend a visit here if you want to get away from it all and surround yourself in the natural beauty of Spain. The hospitality shown by Helena is something else. We were greeted with fresh eggs and milk from the farm and treated to some local desserts and craft beer at different times throughout our stay. It was fabulous, and Helena's great knowledge of the area ment we had some great days out. This place is rural and beautiful and still close to lots of beaches, small fishing villages, a national park and Santander is 30 minutes away. It was fabulous to return to the mountain top and chill out after a long day exploring. Thanks Helena and all the ducks, dogs, hens, cats and geese for a fabulous holiday. We'll be back :))

This Airbnb experience, with Helena and Xavier, was unique. They could not have been more kind. Xavier came down the mountain to lead us in, Helena produced fresh eggs and milk daily, free of charge. Helena's English is very good, and she is a mine of information about places to eat and things to do. This is a rustic setting. So, expect dogs and cats, cows, chickens and geese. There may be flies, as on any farm. Your hosts live upstairs, and there is another accommodation beside yours. We did not find this a disadvantage. The view down to the valley is breathtaking, and, yes, you will be 3.5 km from Esles, the closest village. We did easy day trips to Bilbao, Santander and Comellas. Coming 'home' was so peaceful. The cottage is quaint with a flavour of Gaudi. Two double bedrooms, one with 2 single beds as well. We cooked, we used the washing machine, There's heating as well as a potbelly stove. Thanks, Helena and Xavier! Jane, Ian, Alix and Larry

Me encanta la naturaleza, la vida en el campo y los animales, de ahí que -aunque nací, crecí y hasta hace poco viví en pleno centro de Barcelona- me he venido con mi familia a vivir a la cima de una de las montañas de Esles, donde se encuentra mi casa y los apartamentos que os of…
