    We have had a fabulous Easter week despite the weather, as we have had the odd storm, but what can you expect in Cantabria (eastern). The enclave is incredible, literally located between mountains with large meadows around us, we recommend this accommodation to go with dogs or pets. You enjoy peace and silence in complete tranquility. The pool is great and has incredible views.

  • It has been seventeen years since I was going to spend a few days at this inn. I went when I was little with my parents and they had just finished opening it. This time I rented this mountain house in Cantabria with my wife. After passing the May bridge there are still things that have not changed: the calm to which it transports you, the stream that runs next to the house, the good food at the restaurant, the easy breakfast with incredible bread and the good conversation with the owner (Mari Ángeles).

We have loved it, it is very well cared for and is very cozy, in addition, the decoration is to the smallest detail. The town is very quiet, very close there are several town shops, small restaurants, pharmacy ... Good recommendations from the owner to eat in the area, we have tried the mountain stew and the meat.

  • I was last summer with my 3 children, who were thirteen, twelve and ten years old at that time. It was a vacation in western Cantabria that we still remember with longing. The atmosphere is beautiful but words would fail to describe the accommodations, Gloria decorated them with great taste, nothing is missing. In them you can see the delicious sensitivity of the owner, a captivating woman. We still remember our breakfasts on the terrace, the calm and accessibility of the site.

  • We got together fourteen people between adults and children so we had to rent the 3 complete rural houses. This charming accommodation was our destination to spend the Easter holidays and from the first moment everything was comfort. Wood for the entire fireplace and heating in the rooms, more than enough plates, glasses, cutlery and everything. We really feel at home. Of course, it rained on us but something typical of the Cantabrian lands.

  • We were spending a few days on vacation in August with friends and family and we were surprised by how beautiful the tourist rental house is with a special charm that intoxicates you as soon as you enter. We take advantage of the days to make tourist and cultural visits to the different surrounding towns, all of them are very worth it, but above all we recommend: Ampuero, Laredo, Santoña and Castrourdiales as they are located in the eastern part of the province. We ended up exhausted from kicking and eating so well! But when we got back to the rural house we knew that it would comfort us by how well it rests and how intimate it is to return to the tranquility and spend long hours of chatting during dinner and after dinner.

  • We were for rent during Easter and we loved it for its good location, very close to towns such as S. Vicente del Barquera or Comillas in the interior of the western area. We have eaten wonderfully and at a very good price. The house is exceptionally well cared for, all gleaming white in contrast to the green of the meadows and the surrounding vegetation. Highly recommended for its exceptional decoration.

  • We have spent a great week in one of the accommodations that make up this rustic house. The house is comfortable, clean, full of details and with ample space (we loved the terrace, where you can go out to disconnect and just listen to the sounds of nature). The house is located in the middle of the mountains of the Valles Pasiegos, a place to disconnect and savor the charm of nature and its details. And what to say about the owners, Cristina and Tomás, charming and with a very pleasant treatment, ready to help and advise you at any time, be it about places to visit, restaurants for meals, problems that may arise, etc.

  • His name takes it to show since we were like in a palace. We passed the bridge of all saints there and enjoyed its indoor pool, a full-fledged lojo. You can rent by rooms, but we, being many, rented the entire rural houses. A great place to disconnect and recharge batteries very well connected and close to the Ebro. We saw how cows were milked and worked with tractors, things that we are not used to seeing in the city.

  • October bridge weekend for 4 couples and four children. Nothing but good words, both about the state of the house and Gelines' treatment (not even the crumbs remained of the cake). We stayed in Eros dos (it is really a huge house that has been enabled to be 2 accommodations, one with capacity for about sixteen people and another for about twelve. Although that detail at the beginning threw us back a bit, interference 0, two entrances Totally opposite, with separate gardens, so we didn't even see the other guests.

  • We are regulars in rural tourism and we have to say that we are totally right with the rental of this rustic house. Very close to Torrelavega, we also passed through Santander one of the days. It is very well cared for, it shows that they pamper it. The garden is to spend hours reading a book and having a coke. We were 12 people and we had plenty of space. A vacation in July that we will remember.

  • We were in La Basna on the March bridge in the western area. The stay has been perfect from reception to departure. When we arrived, Tere and her husband were waiting for us with some warm, freshly made puff pastry, delicious. They showed us the whole village house and immediately left us to our own devices. They are very very friendly and nice. The house is fully equipped, no detail is missing. If you forget the charcoal from the barbecue, the house is available at service station cost, excellent!

We have been speechless with the kindness of Gregorio and his wife ... The rural cabin is very well equipped to be in the middle of the field. You live directly with the cows, with the farm animals and with the garden.

Where to sleep

Where to sleep in Cantabria

There are many options in Cantabria that will allow you to enjoy of the views and of its true natural paradise. We must tell you that it's a quite damp place, so you should pack some warm clothes, your scarf and a pair of gloves if you're staying during winter. And it will be even better if you rent a house with a fireplace.

You can find some of the most charming towns, very popular amongst tourists, such as the village of Santillana del Mar, known as the "town of three lies". It is a very charing village, with tourism as its main economic activity.

Another popular destination in Cantabria is San Vicente de la Barquera, a small fishing village with the most spectacular views of the sea, with its great views of the castle coming close second to it. But if you would prefer to ditch the car and truly want to stay in a magical place, still stuck in the old times, Bárcena Mayor is your option, as its stone-paved streets makes it impossible for cars to move around.

What to do

What to do in Cantabria

There is no denying Cantabria is one of Spain's most beautiful regions. But there's much more than just green landscapes here.

You will find here unique, historical and artistic examples of national relevance in this area, such as the famous prehistoric site of the Cuevas de Altamira, a visit you mustn't miss during your stay.

Known as the Sistine Chapel of cave paintings and part and UNESCO protected world heritage, it is a true historical legend. But your journey underground doesn't finish here, since there are many other caves to be explored in the area.

The Palacio de la Magdalena in Santander, the old Convento de San Luis in San Vicente de la Barquera, or Gaudí's El Capricho modernist building in Comillas are some of the most important monuments of historical and cultural relevance you will find in this area.

We also recommend the road of Besaya, dating from ancient Roman times and a exceptional walk with equally exceptional views, surrounded by nature. Be ready for an adventure!

What to eat

What to eat in Cantabria

Considering its location, it should not come as a surprise that Cantabria has also some of the best fish and seafood coming from the fresh waters of Santander's bay.

You will find its seafood, specially cockles, crabs, barnacles and langoustines amongst others, is an essential part of most cuisine that is typical of this region. Don't forget to try also the Santoña anchovies, one of the most popular local foods in here.

But it's not all about fish here, since local meat here is of the highest quality too, specially veal, so much so that a livestock fair, the Feria Nacional de Ganados, is held every year in Torrelavega.

Amongst the regional dishes that we recommend is the cocido montañés (traditional stew from Cantabria) and for dessert, quesadas and sobaos pasiegos are our sweets of choice.
