House with a view

My father had the bright idea to buy a house in Luanco, Summer destination in the North of Spain, where he used to spend his holidays as a kid. Here's the view from the house which I tend to come to every year to escape the Madrid Summer heat !

A fishermen village

Luanco is a small city, or rather big village, which reaches its maximum occupancy during the Summer months. It is above all a fishermen place and has charming houses and small pedestrian streets.

Being on the Northern coast of Spain, it is quite cold and rainy, even during the Summer.

The region is also known for its gastronomy, so don't miss tasting the fresh seafood and delicious typical recipes!

    I like places that have harbours like that -- I'd enjoy that tortilla Espanola too -- maybe with a sidra or two to follow ....

    This place looks quite charming! Only one tip, Vanessa, but it's a GREAT tip! I'll have to remember that word: "sidreria." Let's see how many gulps it takes for me to slur my Spanish! ;-)

    Did you get drunk very fast with sidra? No, no me respondas, creo que me se la respuesta :-p

    I have not been yet, but it is on mind to travel a little more around the north coast of Spain... Beautiful views of the house!
