Make a holiday apartment in Miengo your home away from home

If you're fond of spacious Atlantic beaches, verdant landscapes and prefer temperate climes then a holiday apartment in Miengo could be perfect for you. The coastline here offers almost countless long sandy beaches, with huge expanses of sand, ideal for kiting, kite-surfing or simply taking it easy on warmer days. And if you've always wanted to give surfing a go, you'll have the perfect opportunity during your stay at a Miengo holiday home. Accommodation here is cosy and rural in character, but endowed with all the functionality you could need. Nearly all holiday homes in Miengo are a short hop from the beach and benefit from private gardens.

Things to do

-Beaches. The municipality of Miengo has five beaches, which are natural and untamed, with extensive sweeps of golden sand fringed by green hills. The facilities are still superb - Cuchia beach has disabled access, as well as a boardwalk, showers, cafes and car park. Usgo beach, backed by cliffs, is quieter, but no less beautiful - the currents here are quite strong, but the scenery is nothing short of sublime.

-Recreation. The neighbouring town of Mogro has the Abra del Pas golf course, boasting nine holes surrounded by woodland and dunes. There's also a driving range and practice green here. On the water, if you'd like to have a go at surfing then the Atlantic has some good swells here, and there are several surf schools nearby, including one a few minutes from Miengo at Cudon.

-Heritage. Cudon is also known for its cave, which has art from the middle and upper paleolithic periods, between 24,000 and 30,000 years ago. It was discovered in the 1930s and is one of a number of similar sites across Cantabria. If Cudon whets your appetite then there are other caves close by at Arce, Suances and Camargo.

-Food and drink. Right on the Atlantic, the cuisine here is founded firmly on fish and seafood, especially anchovies, mullet, sea bass, squid and sardines. Grilled sardines and fried calamari are two staples. Cantabria's greenery also makes it an important region for cattle farming, and the excellent conditions are reflected in the high quality of the beef from this region.

-Santander. Santander is an interesting city, known for its fine restaurants and delightful sandy beaches, and has some interesting monuments and attractions to check out. The Palacio de la Magdalena was the residence for the Spanish royalty in the early-20th Century, leading up to the civil war. Cantabria's prehistoric archaeological wealth is also showcased at the Archaeological Museum, while the old town is compact and picturesque with numerous old churches.

Weather in Miengo

Miengo holiday accommodation is in an oceanic climate zone, with neither extreme highs in summer nor lows in winter. There's also quite a lot of humidity on Spain's northern coast. It's a much greener part of the country, and this is down to the relatively frequent rainfall. Temperature-wise, summers are pleasant, with average highs just below the mid-20s in July and August. These months are also the driest of the year. Winters meanwhile are very mild, with temperatures getting up to the mid-teens, even in January.

Travel to Miengo

The simplest way to get to a Miengo holiday apartment from Britain is via Santander Airport (SDR). This small destination handles mostly domestic flights, but there are some connections to cities in Britain. The airport is a mere 17 kilometres from the town of Miengo, and the A-67 toll road will get you most of the way there. Santander connects with other Spanish cities by long-distance and medium-distance rail lines. You can get here from Madrid, Valladolid, Oviedo and Bilbao.

Perfect for the beach and visiting local villages. Lovely apartment.

5 of 5
The hosts were very welcoming, apartment clean and comfortable. Lovely outside area fenced in, great for our dog to lay in the sun. Close to several beaches, 13 minute drive to Santander. Lots to see and do, forest walks, but be careful of the processional caterpillars, they can be dangerous to dogs and small children. There are also naturist beaches if the weather is good. We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment for 24 nights, the bed was made ready and very comfortable lovely white towels, everything you could want for your holiday. We would stay there again when visiting Spain. When we needed to contact the hosts they replied very quickly and were available if needed. Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment.

A delightful apartment in the centre of Liencres

4 of 5
The apartment was well situated in the town of Liencres with bars,restaurants and supermarkets within easy walking distance. It was clean and well maintained with good customer service from the owner. The only downside was the apartment had no wifi but a couple of the local bars such as Casa Carlos had free wifi which we frequented. Locally there are three beaches all within walking distance of the apartment and lovely walks along the coastline and through a pine forest. Santander is approx. 7 km away and is a lovely city to visit with an excellent archeological museum and more beaches. If you have a car Liencres is well situated close to motorways from which to explore Cantabria and further if you wish. Among others we had day trips to San Sebastian, Laguardia in the Rioja region and Potes in the Leibana region - all of which I would recommend. If you are looking for a well priced apartment which is well positioned and clean Ii would recommend it. A very enjoyable holiday
