Small but perfectly formed, this cosy one-bed village house will make a perfect retreat for someone who is looking for tranquility, spectacular landscapes and who loves to hike in the mountains. With many clever touches to make the best use of space and a craftsman’s care evident in many details throughout, the house is full of charm and ready to use from day one.

Currently the energy supply is from a solar panel but the preinstallation for mains electricity is already in place throughout the house so it would be possible to get a connection if desired. It is on mains water and has instant hot water supply via a bottled-gas powered heater.

Downstairs is the small bathroom, entrance hallway with storage shelving and the kitchen to the rear. Upstairs is a mezzanine style bedroom with seating area to the gallery. The mezzanine-style construction gives a double-height entrance and allows natural light from the sky lights into the whole house.

Located in the well-preserved traditional village of Bermiego in the mountains of Quirós from where many tracks open out onto the mountains of the Cordillera Cantábrica it’s a truly stunning location in the heart of nature and the local area is a popular destination with hikers, climbers, bikers, animal and bird spotters as well as having snow-shoeing and cross country skiing opportunities on the nearby peaks in winter.
