Host Marta is very welcoming and full of useful information, communicated in Spanish. The house is homely, clean and cottagey, but rooms are large and beds very comfortable. It's next to a stunning and very cold stream that became a river after rains. The village of Leirganes is 20 mins from Santander but has a totally different feel. It's a good place to visit the stunning mountains and gorgeous hill-towns like Potes, Fuente De with the 1,800m cable car in the Picos Europa National Park. We also recommend Bilbao and the Guggenheim, that and Picos are approx 80 mins away. Lierganes is a pretty, small town with a few restaurants and cafe's by the river. Highly recommend - a lovely weeks stay.
We absolutely loved our holiday, location-wise the apartment cannot be beat - Lierganes is out of this world for families, so friendly, clean and packed with family-friendly amenities but quiet and quaint too. The apartment has a lot going for it, no less the view from the balcony and window seats in the kitchen area. Perfect size for a family of four. We had some trouble getting into the apartment when we arrived and there were some cleaning issues but we contacted the owner and housekeeper, both of which were very amenable and friendly and helped us out accordingly. We couldn't find the river for swimming, but again got prompt help and advice from the owner which resulted in my children snorkelling in the river with fish nibbling at their toes which they adored.
A few finishing touches in renewing a few items and sorting out more thorough cleaning would transform what is already a wonderful place to stay. The garden looks amazing but we couldn't use it due to it being so overgrown - although the grass was cut the day we were leaving.
The water is always hot and plentiful, the apartment is stunningly situated and very quiet at night. All in all we had a very special holiday and the owners are a pleasure to deal with.
