Posada Torre de la Quintana in Liendo, an enclave to disconnect
Days ago we defined Liendo as our gateway to the Cantabria Oriental Rural. Staying in this small town embedded in a valley was a success for us, because just 10 minutes by road from the "civilization" of Laredo (another town with a lot of charm but of different conception) presents the complete disconnection we were looking for in this getaway . Even also for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago.
Access it from the A8 It does not have much complication, although we would recommend stopping at the lookout point of the nearest exit to Castro Urdiales (and not the first) because from there you will have a privileged view of the beautiful Liendo Valley in which you enter.
And what possibilities do I have staying at Liendo? Laredo 10 minutes, San Julian Beach 5 minutes, Sonabia 10 minutes, Castro Urdiales 15 minutes, Clean and Ampuero 20 minutes and entrance to the Cantabria Oriental de Ramales, Prehistoric Caves as Covalanas, Nature hiking, etc ...
What if I don't have a car to move?Multiadventure, quads, horseback riding, hiking, beach, diving, surfing, canoeing, mountain, bike rides (provided at the inn itself), ...
The facilities of the Posada Torre de la Quintana in Liendo
We must recognize that we had read about this place before going. The Posada La Torre de La Quintana in Liendo it is not a traditional hotel, nor a hostel nor a hostel, it is neither more nor less than a mansion from the 17th century that retains its aristocratic character and even its 15th-century tower and the heraldic shield of the Sopeña family. And here you can sleep? Yes, it is completely renovated and, without losing that atmosphere of the past, it has achieved a cozy atmosphere for the traveler
The entrance and reception areasAs soon as you arrive, you can see those old sofas, bedside tables, paintings, carpets or showcases of ancient times combined with stone walls, sturdy columns or a smooth and comfortable platelet slab for guests.
If we already enter the sleeping areas, there is no elevator but a small staircase accompanied by pieces of great value (trunks, dressers, vases, lamps, ...) continue to provide the facilities of that lost concept that can be enjoyed here
The room, of course, it was not going to be different, combining again the modernities that we all need (enough plugs, bedside table for a computer, television, heating ...) with even that ... (we would not know or define it) pool with old mirror that to know how many years It has already, but that is preserved in excellent condition.
He bath and the cleaning of room / building are correct (the bathroom is sufficiently spacious and with hot water) although perhaps we lack enough internet signal although in the common areas if it offers connection Free Wi-Fi
They are precisely these common zones, with also a large garden, the ones we liked the most, with a lounge where you can enjoy a quiet coffee or tea or even take a game of pool at the edge of the fireplace fire in winter or in an acclimatized area in summer.
Also stand out your buffet breakfast, not so much for all the availability of juices, coffees and other types of food, but for the place where it is located on the first floor, with that atmosphere of old and family house and tables of a lifetime. !We loved it! (pity not having photos)
The Posada Torre de la Quintana in Liendo also has a sauna and a hot tub in the main building and even apartments 800 meters away for those who want another type of stay.
Our opinions of Posada Torre de la Quintana in Liendo and prices
We have to recognize that we only stayed here one night but it gave us enough time to assess that it was all more than perfect, but especially the attention with which we were treated.
Prices?The cheapest room on Booking (You already know that we have it integrated because we always use it and it can be canceled up to 24 hours before) 60 euros And we believe that it is a very balanced price for what it offers.Check availability and prices here for Posada La Torre de La Quintana in Liendo.
Of course, with all the references mentioned, we get many PROs. We would highlight in addition to the attention, the breakfast and the atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation in a privileged enclave, with a multitude of nearby options to enjoy a non-overcrowded cove, that visit to charming villages or to have a few minutes the civilization of Laredo.
As AGAINST perhaps we would put the absence of possibility of dinner (and the nearby places to do it, although you can walk, require a good walk) and that you do not have a good WIFI connection in the room (although this is relative because in the Liendo Valley Do you really love her?)
Would we recommend it then? Yes, We believe it is an excellent and different option to enjoy and "disappear" a few days than we all used to. Of course, we would go by car to consider all the routes using it as a base because Cantabria Oriental has a LOT to offer
