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's clean, well furnished, and well equipped. The property description and photographs on HomeAway website are accurate, and the view over the bay is lovely. Felisa (the owner) is delightful. She communicated with us on WhatsApp in the lead up to our stay which was really helpful. The two extra items that we requested for the kitchen were promptly produced. We would stay here again if we come back to Santander. Would thoroughly recommend both the property, and the owner who was a pleasure to deal with.

The flat is well equipped easily allowing you to eat in if you didn't want to experience the very good value local restaurants. Clean and tidy throughout. Thanks for a really easy rent :)
