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.

It was very interesting to find out about the ecological philosophy on which the farm was based. Everything that was said made so much sense. The animals were in beautiful condition and the local produce, in particular the meat, was delicious. My son-in-law, a chef, was very impressed by the quality. I particularly enjoyed using the fresh vegetables from their kitchen garden which they allowed us to use. The house was very comfortable and provided everything necessary for the stay. It was very clean and well taken care of. It provided a very necessary break for us city folk to unwind and detox. There were some really interesting visits and Marta told us about some speciality restaurants in the region which served up the delicious Asturias products cooked to perfection. We hope to repeat our experience next Christmas season. Thanks to Marta and her lovely family for sharing their lives with us.

October was a great time to come, warm but not too hot to walk in the mountains. The apartment was warm and cosy. there was five of us, which it slept comfortably, but there could have been more comfy seating for all of us for the evenings. If a light sleeper, sleep in the back room as the church bell rings very loudly on the hour and every half an hour! The bar, where we picked up our key and dropped off, was a stones throw away, and we sampled some Asturias cider here. We did not find the noise level from here was a problem. Thank you Isabelle for our stay. Thank you Isabelle for a lovely
