La Peñiga History
Everything have a beginning
About forty years ago I spent summers in a residence in the Cantabrian town of Mazcuerras. The La Peñiga farm remained on the mountainous slopes outside the town, and it always attracted me especially for its wonderful trees, which I later reported were due to the fact that the farm had originally been a nursery. In the eighties, when I found out that it was being sold, I rushed to buy it. It should be noted that when I did it, it was just a mountain, with a small cottage that we still have.
La Peñiga had the two requirements that I considered necessary to make a big garden:
Its unevenness and the water. I started by planting those trees of the species that most interested me, and at the same time started, with the invaluable help of a great friend, the construction of the first phase of our current wooden house.
During the following years, my wife and I made a series of trips through England and the United States, visiting their great gardens. And with all the information collected, we started the first plantings and the construction of the ponds, carrying out the expansion of the house at the same time.
By the passing of time, and after much effort and enthusiasm, it can be said that La Peñiga, as a project of garden and landscaping, has reached its maturity, providing us great satisfaction. We have recently decided to put the farm on rent, with which we hope to make La Peñiga become an enclave of beauty shared with our guests.
