The House

 

The house is located on the outskirts of a small mountain village and is south-facing with great views on all sides. Built in 2008 by Julian Usborne and his daughter Anna in the traditional local style, it has all the advantages of modern living but with the charm of an older house. On the ground floor there are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a spacious entrance hall. Upstairs there is a large living and dining area with a wood-burning stove, and a separate kitchen area. It is comfortably furnished in a contemporary style.

 

 

The Village

 

The house is situated in the village of Berodia, a typical village of 65 inhabitants in the foothills of the Picos de Europa.  Idyllically situated on a green fertile slope surrounded by orchards and grazing cattle, it overlooks the Cabrales valley and the Picos mountains. There is a cheesery which can visited for purchasing homemade cheese. There are also regular vendors who come to the village selling groceries, fresh fish, fruit and vegetables.
