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

Despite my wife's back problems which arose just before we arrived, we really enjoyed our stay. Nearby Lierganes has plenty of facilities to fulfil needs, including a very helpful Doctor's Surgery! We visited the spectacular mountain passes just 15km up the road from the flat, as well as Potes in the Picos Mountains, and some local beaches (Galziano in particular was great). The top flat was worth the climb each day as the view from the balcony was great, and good for supping an evening glass of beer or wine according to the heat of the day. Easy to see Vultures and even an eagle soaring overhead, as well as small garden birds flitting back and forth, with a nightly owl calling too while we could star gaze without the usual UK light pollution. The bed was comfortable and the provision of washing machine and tumble dryer in the basement was helpful after so many hot days. The main bug-bear was the heat in the flat from being on the top floor.... opening the Velux roof windows was some help but that would then let various bugs in once the lights were on.... Overall still well worth while staying here.

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!
