Some opinions of our visitors

  • Javier
    Extraordinary option for lodging. Everything was perfect: the location, surroundings, utilities, charming owners with lots of knowledge of the area. We've been able to stay in tons of other houses of this style around Spain and I must say this one is just in a whole new level. Thank you Alfonso for making it possible.
  • Noelia
    Unbeatable, a 10!  We were in the House on the Side for 12 days during September and as I said,unbeatable!  The house is cozy and had everything we needed. The garden was amazing and our dog loved it! Barcenaciones, being town of cantabria in 2012 is beautiful and perfectly located 5 minutes away from the freeway. Also, the owners are beautiful people and they really made sure we were comfortable and happy. I definitely recommend it! I hope I can come back soon!
  • Alberto
    We couldn't have asked for anything else from the Vallejo House or Barcenaciones. We were there for some days during September in this amazing house and we're sure we'll come back, we still have tons of other things to see! The Vallejo House has everything you might need! And the weather was just beautiful! Thanks for everything really, we will come back soon!
  • Samuel
    Wonderful place and house. We were with a group of friends there during a weekend and the experience couldn't be better. Barcenaciones was wonderful and the house is probably one of the best i've ever seen in the area. We definitely recommend it! Thank you!
  • Gloria
    Charming and cozy house. It's clean and very well equipped. Although we were there during the winter, we could even enjoy the terrace to have a couple of meals while the kids played in the park opposito to the house. We will definitely repeat!  
  • Alicia
    We just spent one full week in the Vallejo House and we loved it ( end of August 2016). The house is perfect, filled with details that make you feel at home. The town is very quiet and calm, the people that live there are also so charming... it was really the perfect week of relax...which we really needed! Thank you Alfonso, we're so happy to have over-fulfilled our expectations. We will definitely come back!
  • Alfonso A.
    This is the second time we come to this magical place. I don't know which one of the times was better, but I'm 100% sure we'll come back! The place is perfect to have a couple of days with your family in a beautiful and natural setting. I can't think of a better place.

    This is the second time we were in this house, and for the second time we've left the top score in TripAdvisor... We're already thinking of the next one! We were there for a weekend ( 2 nights) with another couple and total of 4 kids, we were 8 people total. Todo Everything was amazing, we could enjoy of a marvelous weekend in which we couldn't think of anything else we needed. The house is amazing, it has everything you might need for a weekend with kids. Everything was in perfect shape and everything was clean and shinny, like new! We extensively used the kitchen, we even made a Paella! ( it was delicious btw) Thank you so much Marian and Alfonso, you were super helpful. Congratulations!
  • Marie Laure
    We were two couples and we loved it. The house is very functional, beautifully decorated and respecting the style and charm of a historic building. The heating, showers, the beds, it was all a pleasure we loved! Marian, the lady that received us and helped us check-in is a beautiful person. The owner, although he wasn't there when we arrived, was super attentive to our needs and he communicated with us permanently through phone and mail. Thank you so much for everything!

    The house, as you can see in the pictures, is beautiful and completely equipped! The beds are so comfortable... We loved it! The town is beautiful and incredibly well located to do some meaningful tourism in Cantabria. The service was amazing. In front of the house there's a small park where kids can play basketball and football.
  • Sebastian
    We were in this house for one week during July and we can't just express enough how happy we are we stayed there. Everything was perfect, the equipment of the house, the beds, garden, bathrooms... everything was perfect! We wanted to especially thank the owners for their great service. Barcenaciones is an amazing village, don't miss it, it's beautiful and very very quiet. cheers!
  • Chema
    Beautiful Cantabrian village, small, well-maintained, very well located and quite close to the Luaña beach. It never gets overcrowded, its the perfect place to make tons of trips to other areas of Cantabria ( Cabarceno park, Comillas, Santillana del Mar, Suances,etc). My wife, two sons and I have enjoyed a lot of the peace and tranquility of this cozy house. We loved the garden and the terrace, which allowed for some pretty amazing lunches and dinners. The house has all the facilities you might need for some days of real rest. We would also like to thank the amazing treatment we received from Alfonso and Marian.
  • Arturo
    We were in the House of the Rock for a full week at the beginning of July. Overall, the house is great and we were super comfortable. We are a family with two little girls and a baby. We loved all the advice from the owner about the places to see and the restaurants to eat in ( the restaurant in the village is amazing by the way!) I can't talk about any inconvenients. The town is quiet, well located and with a very beautiful kid park, which was great to have for our children.

Named Town of Cantabria in the year 2012, Barcenaciones is a small rural village with lots of charm and history. Around the year 1000 AD, Barcenaciones already appeared in the Cartulary of Santilla del Mar, and its cobbled streets and stone architecture, present nowadays, go back to the XVII century. In Barcenaciones, we can also see one of the best collections of millenary trees of the area. Set in a beautiful valley, the town has direct access to the Saja river, as well as plenty of rural pathways in which to enjoy nature at its best.

Being 10 minutes away from Torrelavega and less than 40km from Santander, Barcenaciones is located in the municipality of Reocín. We have a privileged access to some of the best-kept jewels of Cantabria. The town of Santillana del Mar, Comillas or San Vicente de la Barquera, as well as the ancient caves of Altamira, or the impressive caves of El Soplao are all a few kilometers away from our houses.

From walking in the countryside, to enjoy the Cantabric sea, skiing in the resort at Alto Campoo, or trekking through the Picos de Europa, there aren’t many places on this planet that are able to offer the vast array of activities in such a natural, historic, and well-preserved environment as is Barcenaciones’.
