Maps can be deceiving, and it is a long drive out of Ponferrada to this little gem. It is located a small village at the bottom a steep drive down. Nothing around it.
The house itself, was clean and tidy and is well constructed with a tasteful and coordinated interior fit out. High quality appliances and fittings throughout. There is a wood fired barbecue on the balcony which allowed you to sit and enjoy a sundowner while the food cooked. Bed rooms are a good size, although the double bed is small for two people and should really be upgraded to at least 1.8 wide.
Because of its isolation, you do need to drive everywhere and after a few trips in and out of Ponferrado, it no longer felt that far away, 20 mins or so. Be aware that there is no supermarket near by and prior to arriving you should stock up.
We enjoyed the walk in the forest and the interaction with the villagers, especially Carlos and his miniature models of the village houses. The hills / mountains above the village are a great drive and offer spectacular views.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Walter was very obliging and pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended for a complete get away from urban life.
