Holidays in the capital of Cantabria

If you are looking for a vacation rental or an apartment in the northern Spanish port of Santander, you will benefit from a particularly large selection, especially in the Plaza del Cuado and Plaza Pedro Velarde areas. The modern accommodations not only impress with their high-quality equipment and extras such as free WLAN, but also with the promenade which is within walking distance as well as the numerous restaurants in the surrounding area. It is particularly beautiful to live in an apartment directly on the coast around the Avenida los Infantes, from where it is only a stone's throw to the beach. For families with children or larger groups, however, a vacation rental with pool in the outskirts of Cueto in the north and Camino de Orconera is the ideal solution.

Travelers and Activities

Santander offers fun for young and old

It doesn't matter whether it's a nature experience, a sightseeing tour or a relaxing day on the beach. Santander has something for everyone. However, the absolute highlight are the two picturesque sandy beaches Playa del Biquini and Playa de la Magdalena, which invite to dig, splash and relax together. The right contrasting program, however, offers cultural sights such as the Palacio de la Magdalena, the Cathedral of Santander and the two lighthouses Faro de La Cerda and Faro de Cabo Mayor, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama. While animal lovers can also look forward to a detour to the Museo Maritimo del Cantabrico with its many elaborately designed aquariums, fans of long past centuries will get their money's worth on a ramble through the Museo de Prehistoria y Arqueologia de Cantabria.
