Situated close to the breath-taking Parque Nacional Picos de Europa, in the Cantabria region, in northern Spain, is the delightful town of Pesaguero. Many people opt for a Pesaguero holiday each year due to the fact that the town is perfectly situated for accessing the national park, as well as a huge variety of activities and attractions that the region has to offer. Not only will a Pesaguero holiday rental apartment offer spectacular countryside views, it will come complete with all of the comforts you need to have a truly relaxing stay.
Although the emphasis of a Pesaguero holiday is to simply relax and take in the stunning scenery, there are a myriad activities available in the surrounding area for those who want a bit of action.

Should you decide to venture further afield on your Pesaguero holiday then it is worth heading for the Altamira Cave, close to the town of Santillana del Mar, on the northern coastline of Cantabria.
