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.

                                                                                                      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
