El Jardin de Carrejo lies at the edge of the picturesque little village of Carrejo on three hectares of vibrant green land. Crossed by the Saja River, the estate comprises vast lawned gardens, shrubs and flower beds, an orchard and a variety of towering centenary trees that provide shade to clients who partake of the clusters of teak furniture dotted around the property. Built in the late 19th century to house a light factory, it was later converted into a family home where Isabel Alvarez, the friendly manager, has fond childhood memories of spending the summers here with her grandparents.

The large, 3-storey stone building is pretty with it´s dormer windows and covered porch that no country home should not be without. Here one can take in the peaceful surroundings leaving all worries behind. The rustic exterior contrasts splendidly with the contemporary design of the interior; noticeable immediately upon entering the house. The miminmalist-inspired décor and a soothing colour scheme of greys, white and neutral tones together create an ambiance of rest and relaxation.The salon and library offers a tranquil setting for reading a book from the library or simply gazing out the large windows that overlook the garden. A fantastic photography collection adorns the walls throughout the Hotel.

El Jardin de Carrejo´s 12 bedrooms, divided amongst Doubles, Junior Suites and 2 very large (and very contemporary) Garden Suites maintain the fresh, avant-garde style. A few of the rooms on the first floor of the main house feature balonies from which to take in more of those views, and the Suite´s terraces are lovely for sitting out and enjoying the air. All are equipped with TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi, mini-bar and hairdryer. For an added touch of luxury, the Suites have both hydromassage baths and showers, whilst the Junior Suites have feature large hydromassage baths. Bathrobes and slippers are provided in both of these room categories. The other bedrooms have full en-suite bath; if you have a preference please let us know at the time of booking. This is a non-smoking Hotel except outside in the garden.

A buffet-style breakfast, complete with tasty homemade treats (including fresh fruit, compotes and tarts made with pickings from their orchards) is served in the bright and airy dining room. Although lunch is not served at the Hotel, light meals of salads, sandwiches and other snacks are on offer for dinner.The helpful staff are happy to recommend restaurants in the area in which to sample more hearty regional cuisine.

The Hotel´s location, just a few kilometres from Cabezón de la Sal, is superb for exploring this stunning area of Cantabria. With the seaside town of Comillas at 10km away, and the sandy beaches of San Vicente la Barquera as well as the Omeyes Natural Park at 15km, there is something for everyone. On the doorstep of both the Saja Besaya Natural Park and the Cabuerniga Valley, not to mention the Picos de Europa, this is a walker´s paradise. Do not miss some of world´s most important prehistoric cave paintings at Altamira which are a mere 19km from the Hotel. Tours of the caves are available. Horseriding, cycling, canoeing, kayaking and quad adventures can be arranged in reception.

An ideal Hotel if you are looking for a tranquil retreat wiith friendly and attentive service. An excellent base from which to explore the natural beauty of Cantabria.
