Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Valdaliga, Spain your home away from home

Valdaliga is a delightfully rural municipality in Cantabria on the northern coast of Spain. Just a few minutes drive from Valdaliga accommodation is Oyambre Beach part of the Oyambre Natural Park, a fantastic conserved coastal ecosystem. Being within a natural park makes this a gloriously peaceful place to relax. The nearest restaurants and supermarkets are between three and eight kilometres away in La Rabia or San Vicente de la Barquera.

Things to do in Valdaliga, Spain

The most obvious thing to do while staying at a self-catering villa in Valdaliga is to enjoy the natural unspoiled surroundings. Towards the sea there are river estuaries, cliffs, meadows, cliff top forests, and sand dunes to explore. There are some very interesting waterfowl to be spotted around here. Inland are foothills and mountains with little villages and places of archaeological interest tucked away in unlikely places making this the perfect place for walking, riding, biking, swimming or just lazing on the beach.

A little bit further a field, but still within the auspices of the Oyambre Natural Park, is St Vincente de la Barquera, originally a fortified town, with numerous historic buildings and sights still to be seen in its old quarter on the hill. Fresh fish restaurants abound in the harbour here and there are other fantastic restaurants shops and tourist facilities.

If you are looking for some rounds of golf, Golf Dumas de Oyambre is just 500 metres from your Valdaliga holiday apartment and is highly rated. A little further away, but within easy reach by motorway, is the popular ski resort of Alto Campoo, which would certainly worth the trip if you stay in Valdaliga in the winter. In the summer the area affords activities like climbing and kayaking, while back on the coast diving is an option for the more active visitor. Also worth exploring are the Caves of Soplao in the Valdaliga hills.

Places to visit in Valdaliga, Spain

If you want to take a day out for more urban pursuits a visit to Santander is well worth the drive from rental villas in Valdaliga. The capital of Cantabria is dates back to Roman times, and along with its historic buildings, museums, galleries and sights it is a bustling modern city with all the shops, restaurants and facilities you could want. The cuisine here is particularly interesting, poised as it is between the mountains and the sea.

Weather in Valdaliga, Spain

If you are staying at a holiday villa in Valdaliga in summer you can expect the weather to be hot but not unbearably so. This area enjoys the benefits of the Gulf Stream meaning warm summers and mild winters with more rain than the more southern areas of Spain.

Just returned from our fourth visit to Los Milanos

5 of 5
The magic of Los Milanos draws us back year after year... we've been 4 times and are already planning our 5th visit next year! The location, comfortable accommodation, spectacular views and warm welcome from Guido and Rosana all contribute to a wonderfully relaxing holiday, for guests of all ages - I would highly recommend to anybody!

Perfect family holiday!

5 of 5
What a hidden gem! We rented the whole house for a family holiday - 11 people. There was so much space in the house, with all rooms ensuite and everything clean and well kept. Indoor and outdoor eating areas and a large garden. The house can be split in two separate dwellings for smaller groups. It is nestled between the mountains and the coast in a collection of small villages. Very peaceful indeed (except for a few mooing cows!). There were a mixture of Spanish tourists and pilgrims to Santiago when we visited giving it that unspoiled feel. Only a few kms from the great beach and small town of Comillas and of plenty of places to explore; Picos mountains, Oyambre golf and enormous beach. We didn't get a chance to see the nearby prehistoric caves or other beaches, and would love to come back to explore more. Richard and Carmen live next door and are wonderful hosts because they have all the knowledge and advice if required, but are not intrusive at all. Thank you Richard and Carmen, and we can't recommend it enough!
