Molledo is found in Cantabria in northern Spain. It’s an Autonomous community famed for its rich greenery, dramatic mountain landscapes, wild coast and prehistoric caves. So a Molledo holiday villa could be the perfect rural getaway, whether you want to experience adrenaline-pumping adventure activities, or simply take in the immense natural beauty and tranquility of one of Spain’s less touristy areas.

Things to in Molledo, Spain

At a Molledo self-catering apartment you’ll be in a great location to make the most of both Cantabria’s mountainous scenery, as well as its coast. The shoreline extends for almost 300 kilometres boasting upwards of 70 beaches, 16 of which meet blue flag standards. The Atlantic offers wonderful surfing conditions, with a handful of surf schools clustered around Santander, just over 40 minutes away from vacation accommodation in Molledo. At Playa de Covachos you’ll be able to reach a spectacular outcrop, known as Isla de Castro.

Surrounding your farmhouse in Molledo are tall green hills among which quaint towns and villages are nestled. In nearby Silio is the Church of San Facundo y San Primitovo, which dates to the 1100s, while the Torre de Quevedo, a defensive tower from the 15th Century can be San Martin de Quevedo, just a few minutes by car from self-catering accommodation in Molledo. The Besaya Valley Roman Road runs through the municipality, and guides walkers through dense forest and over low-lying mountains

If you head south from your farmhouse in Molledo you’ll encounter Cantabria’s most spectacular mountain vistas.

Jose Ramón and Aída were very helpful and welcoming on arrival. The house was very comfortable, with lots of room for our family of 5. The highlight was the garden, which is a lovely place to sit, or fire up the bbq. The village of Novales is a nice place. We arrived on the evening of the lemon festival which was fun, and the nearby restaurant was good for dinner or coffee and snacks. We spent most of our weeks visiting the local beaches, which are excellent. If you want to be in the tourist centres of Northern Spain, this is not the place for you - but for us, it was perfect!

There were a few problems with door locks and a couple of other things, but Ernesto was quick to sort things out. There was a few problems with the electrics when if you turn on the dishwasher and washing machine at the same time, the supply didn't seemed to match the demand and the fusebox kept cutting out. You should also be aware that the houses location is right by a large industrial factory which dominates the view, but the location is great to reach places like Santander, Comillas, Santilano del Mar and Suances. Apart from small niggles with electrics and local factory an excellent host and an excellent house.

The location is incredible, so quiet, amazing views and stunning wildlife make this place worth a visit even without the great villages and sights to visit nearby. San Sebastian 2 hours away is beautiful and great fun, Bilbao an hour away is a really interesting and intriguing city. The mountains are great for walking, even with a 7 and 4 year old we had a good trek and some wonderful views. Espinosa about 10 minutes away is a lovely town and the market there was superb, we ended up with half a kilo or a kilo of everything as our Spanish was not up to scratch but really great to feel part of Spanish rural culture. We were also lucky enough to be around for the festival Las Nieves in the local village Las Machorras, again it was fantastic to be a part of local Spanish culture and amazing to see such a large event take place in such a tiny village, they really went to town! As for the property itself, we fell in love with it. Well equipped and with everything you need for a family of four. The evenings were a little chilly so the huge wood burning stove was put to good use on a couple of occasions and added to the enjoyment! Borja has been fantastic with information and ideas leading up to our stay and the arrival and departure were so easy it was fantastic to start and end our stay as we did. We can't recommend this place highly enough if you want to really get away from it all!
