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.

At the towns along the coast you’ll be able to enjoy some sublime seafood, while the shoreline is also home to most of Cantabria’s golf courses.

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.

A mountain right outside the window! Great walks from the village and within a short drive from the house. There are no shops or bars in the village so we ate in bar/restaurants in local villages which were all excellent, inexpensive hearty food. We loved the Picos mountains and our only disappointment was staying for only 4 nights! You need a week or more to really enjoy the area.
