The apartments are comfortable and attractive. Ours (Cielo) was designed to capture the early summer sun in the upstairs bedrooms. The living room had a small balcony that just fitted two people. The pool was an attractive extra during our stay in June. The common room was a bit of a dungeon - dark and cold, but might well present differently in colder times. I liked the way the buildings had been restored to fit the image of the village and the owner's neighbouring bar. The village is very small with no facilities other than the bar - this is OK if you know in advance and bring your own supplies. We found Tudes a great base for daily walks in the Picos - we stayed for 2 weeks and still had unfinished excursions. For days when driving wasn't attractive, there were good walks around the village and Tony has some good notes on this.
