Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Santander, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

The city of Santander can be found in the surprisingly green region of Cantabria, in Spain. This is a part of Spain that is very well connected with the UK: with regular ferry services from Plymouth and a choice of local airports for you. Your holidays in Santander will be spent in the north of Spain and this is off-the-beaten-track, as far as the hoards of tourists are concerned in other parts of this very popular country. But this does not mean that there are less things to see and do in Santander - in fact, it is completely the opposite to this.

Things to Do on Holiday in Santander, Spain

Your holidays in Santander will be spent in the largest city in Cantabria and this means that there are numerous attractions right on the doorstep of your comfortable self catering apartment to keep you busy. Some of the most popular attractions include El Sardinero - which is a highly fashionable quarter of the city, filled with numerous bars and great restaurants. You may also wish to set time aside to view Santander Cathedral, parts of which actually date back to the turn of the 13th century. The Lighthouse of Cabo Mayor is another very popular draw for visitors on their holidays in Santander. The area is perfect for swimming, at the excellent nearby beaches; you can also indulge in walking, cycling and golf at a choice of courses in Cantabria.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Santander, Spain

One of the most impressive aspects to your holidays in Santander will be the fact that you have the best of all worlds in this part of Spain. You have the excellent beaches that tend to be far quieter than other parts of the country, but are equally, if not more, impressive. Then, inland and to the west of the city, you have the magnificent Picos de Europa mountain range. These mountains are very underrated and it is a must for you to hire a car and drive up into them. Head towards Potes and this is a drive that you will remember for the rest of your days, as it is just so spectacularly beautiful. The town of Potes is a dream, once you get there, with plenty of cafés and bars to replenish you.

Weather in Santander, Spain

For your holidays in Santander, you can expect a climate that is milder than in the UK, but nothing like as hot as the Mediterranean costas. Typically, expect the Winter temperatures to average at around 9 to 13 degrees Celsius and do prepare yourself for snow on the higher ground especially. Summers are very warm and pleasant and the highest average temperature in Santander would be around 23 to 24 degrees Celsius. The average rainfall figure for the city is actually quite high for Spain at 47 inches per year, but this is exactly why the area is so lush and green.

Travel to Santander, Spain

To make the most of your self catering apartment in Santander, you have a choice in how you arrive in the city. The most popular option is to take the luxurious ferry crossing from Plymouth to Santander - which can take as little as 20 hours. This is a twice weekly service and Portsmouth is starting to share this service through Brittany Ferries. Alternatively, you may choose to take the flight through Ryanair to Santander Airport (SDR). This departs from London Stansted (STN).

It is a residential area with the cafe Mimosa just 2 mins walk which served us excellent breakfasts. The apartment had all we needed as a family of four (two of which are teenagers) including wifi. It was nice and clean, and had instant hot water and a washing machine. Javier was an attentive host and communicated well with us before and during our stay (including occasional suggestions for things to visit or events happening). The Sardinaro beaches are approximately 40 mins to walk to and were well worth it (Safe swimming with patrolling lifeguards and clean golden sands). We visited during the Semana Grande and there was lots to do all the time.

There is a beautiful view from the balcony and the apartment is very modern. Loved our stay and the hosts are super helpful and kind.
