Cosy apartment with stunning view

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. This top floor apartment is located two minutes from Laredo's lovely beach. It's very comfortable and clean and Marian the owner ensures you have everything you need. A 20 min walk along the beach or promenade will take you to the town itself and there are numerous bars, restaurants and shops a couple of streets away also. A short ferry ride from the other end of the beach takes you to the pretty little town of Santona.
