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.

The cuisine here is particularly interesting, poised as it is between the mountains and the sea.

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!
