Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Penagos, Spain your home away from home

Penagos self-catering holiday accommodation is set in the region of Santander, not far from Cantabria’s coast. This is a part of the country that contrasts with many people’s notions about rural Spain. Here you’ll be in a landscape of vibrant greenery, with oak forests, grassy hills and undeveloped beaches that remain quiet even at the height of summer.

Things to do in Penagos, Spain

You can embark on a hike or bike ride from your doorstep, finding quaint little villages, woodland and ancient monuments along the way. Less than four kilometres from Penagos self-catering apartments is the Cabarceno Nature Park, which is a zoo with a modern and sustainable twist. Species from all over the world are kept here, but have the freedom of huge enclosures that replicate their natural habitat.

Head a little further inland from holiday accommodation in Penagos, and the landscape becomes more mountainous, and within a half hour drive you’ll be able to enjoy activities like fishing, canoeing and, if you’re feeling especially intrepid, rock-climbing.

On the other hand you could go north from Penagos villas, to discover some of Spain’s most unspoiled beaches. The Cantabrian coast is home to some 70 beaches, a healthy portion of which are blue-flag rated. Santander’s beaches, including El Sardinero and Los Peligros are no more than 25 minutes by car, and offer clean sand and water despite the urban setting. The city is also home to some wonderful seafood restaurants, as well as stunning landmarks like the 12th Century cathedral and the Palacio Real de la Magdalena, a former royal residence.

Great property and lovely people

5 of 5
Property has amazing views over the bay and the balcony is a lovely place to sit on a warm summer's evening. The house is very comfortable and pretty spacious. Wonderful hi-fi system and TV which was a bonus as we had some bad weather. There are 5 restaurants within 5 minutes walk - some selling fresh BBQ fish. There is also a very good butchers, fishmongers, grocery and small supermarket within 5 minutes walk. Plus the ferry to Santander is just down the hill. The owners are very kind and willing to help out with any information or other issues concerning the house. They definitely want anyone visiting to make the most of the area and enjoy their holiday. We would be very happy to go back. Santander can be reached by the ferry (15 minutes) and has plenty of shops, restaurants and museums. There is also a very good market and the Botin centre that are worth a visit. Somo is a lovely long sandy beach with plenty of room for everyone. (Somo can also be reached by ferry). If you are into water sports there are surfing schools (with English speaking instructors) etc in the town. If you feel up to it you can walk to either end of the beach - with Loredo at the far end. It is also worth taking a trip inland to places like Lierganes or the Altamira Caves.

Excellent mountain location.

Irene was a very helpful and attentive host. The apartment was clean and comfortable and in a good location to explore both Santander and Bilbao. The local beaches were excellent.
