Santillana del Mar | Ref: HSAN3 | Bedrooms: 14

...

This large 16th-18th century house, in a quiet corner of Santillana del Mar, was for sixty years home to the organist at the Colegiata and has views both to that beautiful building and others of the ancient village and to the surrounding meadows.

Santillana del Mar

Santillana del Mar, about seven kms from the sea, is a beautiful village of grand old mansions, each with its coat-of-arms, and traditional farmhouses. It is justly popular with visitors as a cultural centre: there are two museums and often exhibitions of more than local interest while the wonderful Romanesque Collegiate Church holds concerts. It also has some very good pottery shops as well as stalls selling the local milk and cake (sobaos), and trinkets, and has a good choice of cafes and restaurants. In summer it is busy – but even then, the local farmers continue about their business, so that cows and carts mix with the camera-carrying tourists.
