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.

The property is located in a very beutiful valey away from it all so a car is escencial. A lot of oportunities for things to do easily reachable by car. A lot of shoping in a short driving distance too. Very convenient bakery/cafe near buy (5 minutes drive, loved it). Unfortunately the weather was not perfect during our stay but it was merely the ownly downside I could think off. Would be happy to stay there again in the future.
