"La Rondita is a charming cottage in a beautiful area between the coast and the mountains. We found it to be well-equipped and spotlessly clean. Sara and Bill are on hand to help whenever you need them."
"We were delighted with La Rondita. The house was charming, comfortable, and well equipped, the garden beautiful- and hard to leave. Fuentes is a picturesque hamlet nestling in hills by the river Selle- and even has its own station. We particularly loved swimming in the river- just 5 minutes walk from the house. We went walking in the mountains, explored lots of beaches and enjoyed the celtic music and dance festival in Arriondas. Sara and Bill, the owners, live next door with their lovely children and are very friendly and helpful."
"Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be! A charming village, an excellent location (between the coast and the mountains) and a lovely place to stay. The house was very clean, well-equipped and we had plenty of room (a bonus when you have two small boys!). The garden was a lovely place to sit and take in the view. Sara and Bill were exceptionally helpful and made sure we had everything we needed (including lots of thoughtful extras such as toys and books for the children). The welcome pack with information about the region and recommendations was excellent. A wonderful holiday!"
"the house was very clean & peaceful, with ample facilities in a very pleasnt little village. Good access to mountains,sea,beaches,and all the many attractions this beautiful area has to offer.the hosts made us very welcome,and enhanced our holiday by being so helpful."
"Five out of five on all aspcts! This property delivers all it promises in the add, and more!"
