Amazing week!

5 of 5
Our family absolutely loved our stay in this property. The owners were so welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful with information about the local area as well as giving us a welcome gift. The house has absolutely everything guests could want and it is so well laid out for a large family or group of friends. The children really enjoyed the upstairs area and of course the enclosed garden. Good to know also is that a short distance from the house is a fence multi-sport pitch and play area. The property is located close to major road links and has very good restaurants nearby also. We definitely hope to return during the warmer months to be able to use the pool and explore this beautiful region further. Thanks very much to Ana and Gonzalo.

Excellent apartment in quiet location with a friendly service

5 of 5
This is a well-decorated homely apartment with good quality kitchen and bathroom. The owner Luga speaks good English. She was very helpful and responded promptly in answering our questions in the days leading up to our stay. She met us at the apartment and quickly made us feel at home. The apartment has good quality comfortable beds and good wifi connection. The location is walking distance from the centre, bus and train stations. There are ample local shops and supermarkets nearby. There are also some excellent seafood restaurants 10 minutes walk away. We'll stay here again next time we visit Santander.
