Make a holiday rental villa or farmhouse in Camaleno, Spain your home away from home

Camaleno is an inland municipality in the Autonomous Community of Cantabria, found on Spain’s Atlantic coast, to the north of the country. It’s a region of considerable natural beauty, boasting mountains, lakes, lush greenery and a long, scenic coastline. There’s also plenty of history here, with quaint medieval towns dotted around, and a number of prehistoric caves open to the public.

Things to do in Camaleno, Spain

At a Camaleno holiday villa you’ll be in the Picos de Europa mountain range, which spans much of northern Spain. A large portion of the range is found within the eponymous national park - is the largest in Europe. With numerous trails to be found close to holiday farmhouses in Camaleno, it’s a real delight for keen walkers or mountain bikers, and the vistas are truly astounding. Towering peaks and gorges characterise the mountain range, while the park supports an array of wildlife, including the endangered Cantabrian brown bear.

It’s ideal if you’d like to escape the bustle of city life, and would also offer the perfect setting to take part in some re-energising adventure sports. The Saja River is within 20 minutes of Camaleno holiday accommodation, and is popular for canoe excursions. The Deva is a little further, but is another hotspot for water-based adventure activities.

The town of Potes is within easy reach of self-catering villas in Camaleno, and is found within the stunning Liebana valley. One of the main landmarks in this historic market town is the Torre del Infantado, a medieval defensive tower.

Stunning views and central in this lively town

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here, the views over the harbour, town and far mountains were fantastic. Its a comfortable apartment with lots of space and the two bathrooms were a bonus. There are lots of bars and restaurants locally and just over the bridge there are even more! We enjoy walking and straight from the apartment you can walk along the coast in either direction for as long as you want, or your legs last out!
