With Comillas just a short drive away, restaurants and shops are conveniently close, and should you fancy a change of scenery, then the Picos de Europa mountains and the city of Santander are less than an hour's drive.

Self Catering Holiday (min 7 nights)
The lovely old town of Comillas is only three kilometres away. Here you will find lots of shops, restaurants, bars, banks, a tourist office and a busy Friday market.
Comillas sits on the hills above a beautiful bay and a little harbour.
Although it is expanding, its fascinating mixture of old houses overlooked by the dignified buildings of the former theological seminary make Comillas a delight to wander through. The architect Gaudi’s folly El Capricho, now restored and open for visitors with tickets, is just one of the big old residences worth a look.
Comillas beach is long and sandy, very ‘seasidey’ with its esplanade, while the pretty walled harbour makes a good walk with splendid views along the coast, the comings and goings of the fishing boats an extra fascination.
Town and beach have a relaxed holiday feel about them – and fairly bustle in July and August.
