Full property description & Rustical Review

In the abundantly fertile Bedoya Valley, as you enter the bowl of Liebana mountains from the coast, sweet little Trillayo village has a quiet existence, growing vegetables and fruit, keeping hens and not worrying about much at all. It’s a place where old people stop to talk and children play with baby frogs at the fountain.

We
re always on the look-out for cottages that are affordable to all pockets while providing an all-round satisfactory experience. This one has real character!

The cottage apartment is ideal for anyone wanting to stay in a real Picos de Europa beauty spot on a modest holiday budget. Why stay at a dull hotel or a campsite when you can self-cater in a whole house with a lovely garden?

If you appreciate genuine rusticity, you
ll find the 200-year old cottage has oodles of charm with its wood floors, solid beams, chunky furniture and viewing balcony.

It
s not big and all on one floor so everythings very handy. The kitchen is practical, with all the necessary equipment for meal preparation, and tables for dining inside or outside are just a few steps away.

You have two small bedrooms, a double and a twin, not luxurious but perfectly good. The double-bedded room is more comfortable than the twin, but lacks wardrobe space.

In the photograph taken from the balcony, you can see why the location is such a draw. Rolling, forested hills all the way to the high Picos mountains. The village in the distance is Colio.

The garden has plenty of vegetation, so it feels somehow private and intimate in spite of being in a village. There are peach trees and flowers, and a vine has grown up over the simple sitting area. You also have a couple of camping-style deckchairs.

Trillayo (population 31) doesn
t have any shops, but the caretaker will tell you where to buy local produce such as eggs, potatoes and fruit. Specialities in this Liebana area include cheeses (quesucos), veal and honey.

It's a proper faming community on a small, quiet scale, something you don't often find these days.

Just 5 minutes away is Potes, the hub for La Liebana, where you can do all your shopping, buy souvenirs, connect to internet, and arrange activities at any of the agencies.

The whole area is extraordinarily fertile and beautiful. It’s a truly blessed land, one of the top spots in La Liébana for hiking. The Bedoya Valley, famed among things for its red onions, is a gateway to the high peaks and along the way you will find one of Europe’s most ancient yew forests. The yew trees issue inexplicably from the solid rock.

And don
t miss the astonishingly thousand year-old chestnut trees of El Habario between Pendes and Cabañes.

There are walks from the cottage itself and a short drive will bring you to an endless array of hiking opportunities. It’s well worth getting your bearings at the Visitors Centre in Tama 2 km away, which is much more impressive than you might imagine, and near to here is Casa Fofi, a restaurant we highly recommend that’s always busy and has very tasty dishes.

The Lebe
ña spa, 15 minutes away, has the warmest natural springs in Cantabria. From here, there’s a good walk to a nearby small lake.

This area has a warmer, sunnier climate than most of Northern Spain, so you have a good chance of holidays with walks in dry weather. There's plenty to do and explore and you'll be able to read all about it in the detailed Liebana Guide we send you before you travel.

In less than an hour you can be on the beach at lovely seaside town of San Vicente de la Barquera, or continue to the huge sand dunes of Oyambre.

The drive from the ferry or airport at Santander is 1 hour 15 minutes. Add another hour if you're arriving at Bilbao or Asturias Airport.
