This peaceful romantic little hideaway overlooking the beautiful Iguña valley has incredible views of tree-covered hills as far as the eye can see and the only sounds you'll hear are birds and the rustle of trees. A pleasant downhill walk takes you to the village (600m) where there's a locals' bar and, up by the church,a lovely play/bbq area along with the starting point of a marked walk. The nearby hamlet of Barros (2k) has a choice of restaurants and a general provisions store but if you happen to tire of being away from major civilisation or the sea, both are within easy reach giving you the best of both worlds. Casa El Pomar is totally open plan, with the exception of the shower room/wc, and is furnished to create a comfortable holiday environment. The water is sourced from the local stream and the friendly owner, who speaks English and is an organic farmer, lives just along the track and is always on hand should you need him - nothing is ever too much trouble. This truly is northern Spain at its best.
There is a £20 supplement per night for stays between 14-17 April.
