About Gina Diaz and Emily Diaz Flynn

Welcome to our family home! This house has been in our family for generations and we are happy to be able to share it with you.

Gina Diaz and Emily Diaz Flynn purchased this villa in 1880

Why Gina Diaz and Emily Diaz Flynn chose Leon Province

Our house is the perfect getaway! It is nestled in the Picos de Europa and provides a warm, peaceful and restful vacation. Our central heating will keep you cozy on a chilly night, and the fully furnished kitchen is a gathering space for family and friends after a day of hiking, biking or day trips to the many locations nearby.

What makes this villa unique

If you love hiking, biking and mountain climbing, you have found your spot! If your ideal vacation is to experience the true Spain, and avoid the tourist shops and traps, you will find Ribota relaxing, beautiful and friendly. A glass of sherry and some cabrales cheese taken on the patio facing the mountain Niajo is an unbeatable experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ribota is a perfect escape from modernity, while this villa provides all the modern needs to make your stay comfortable. The air is fresh and the scenery is magnificent. We went on a 20 mile hike the first day and it was one of the most enjoyable I have ever had. I recommend visiting the nearby town, Oseja (2 mi away) for local food and also a great small bar/restaurant. I highly recommend this villa for a great family or romantic getaway that will be unmatched almost anywhere else in the country.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The Casa was lovely and in a beautiful location with fabulous views. A mountain right outside the window! Great walks from the village and within a short drive from the house. There are no shops or bars in the village so we ate in bar/restaurants in local villages which were all excellent, inexpensive hearty food. We loved the Picos mountains and our only disappointment was staying for only 4 nights! You need a week or more to really enjoy the area.

Genial

  • 5 of 5

Tengo quebdecir que la estancia fue genial. Estuvimos con un bebé y un niño de tres años. Fuimos además en un momento que había muchísima nieve y lo mejor de todo ha sido lo calentita que estaba la casita! Es verdad que la primera impresión es una casa vieja, pero luego te das cuenta de que no le falta de nada!

Nunca hemos estado en una casa que tuviera tantas cosas! No le faltaba de nada! Y en un sitio realmente impresionante!

Volveremos! Gracias por todo

Fantastic Natural Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is a DREAM. This is our second visit to this property and each time it is joyous! First, all the conveniences are available in this spotless home; from washer, to gourmet kitchen, to comfortable bedrooms, large bathroom etc. The views from each window are a breathtaking. We dream of our next visit for the relaxation, the hiking, the people, the location....you get the gist.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had the best three weeks in this wonderful house in the middle of the mountains in the Peaks of Europe (Picos de Europa). It was a true blessing to meet the wonderful people of the village of Ribota. I made a daily hike to neighboring Oseja de Sajambre and other beautiful neighboring villages. It was great to be there in the summer as many of the children and family members come "home" from Leon or Oveido to visit their families and be a part of the local celebrations. If you are an outdoor enthusiast there's plenty of hiking to do (make sure to do the 24K Ruta del Cares about a half hour south of Ribota) and visit the town of Cangas de Onis to the north (again about a half hour), to do canoeing, rafting, swimming and other great activities. If you're a homebody, you'll love the house and it's great spaces. There's a beautiful patio for coffee in the morning or a BBQ in the evening. They have a wonderful sitting room for reading and visiting and a great kitchen to do all your cooking at home if you'd like. They have trucks that come with groceries virtually every day. Monday, Thursday and Saturday someone comes with fresh bread in a van. Tuesday is the freezer truck day. They come with ice cream, frozen fish and meat, and other cold or frozen items. Wednesday is the fresh fruit and vegetable truck with many other necessities like cereal, sugar, pasta, eggs, etc. Since the couple next door to this rental in Ribota is next door to the oldest couple in town, all the vendors come directly to their (your) door and honk the horn to invite you out to the sale! All the neighbors gather around and visit as they do their shopping. I think it was one of the most unique and best experiences of my time in Spain. The beds are great. I slept well every night (and often during the afternoon siesta as well!). If you can swing it, I highly recommend this wonderful retreat in the middle of this wonderful place.

site exceptionnel, aménagement complet, salle de séjour désuette

  • 4 of 5

3 vraies chambres, une belle salle de bain, une vraie cuisine, une terrasse avec une vue de rève.

un tout petit séjour anglais avec un canapé cassé, des livres en anglais et 19 DVD anglais-espagnol, et un décodeur en panne.

Le beau temps a été au rendez-vous, heureusement car :

- à oseja il y a l'indispensable (épicerie bien fournie et abordable, 2 restaurants, boulangerie, pharmacie)

- cangas de onis est en bas du défilé à 40 minutes, il y a de tout pour tout le monde

à recommander pour la rando, le contact avec une nature magnifique, et la gentillesse des habitants.

à éviter comme pied-à-terre pour faire la côte et les sites touristiques des Picos, seul Covadonga est accessible sans trop rouler.

The Picos de Europa National Park is the setting in which Ribota sits- the new recreation site for Europeans- the mountains are spectacular, the hiking is unparalleled, and excessive tourist crowds are not an issue ever.
