There is everything you need in Puente viesgo but the much larger Torrelavega is only 10 mins away, if you fancy shopping. We loved it and would do it again tomorrow, if it were possible. Totally exceptional and worth every penny. Mil gracias a Andy y Denise ..... Un abrazo fuerte!!!

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.
