Overview

Santillana del Mar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom apartment sleeping up to 6

Our fully renovated farmhouse is over 100 years old and is situated in a quiet rural position on the unspoilt coastline of Cantabria. We sit on over 13 acres and the grounds have been landscaped to provide plenty of space to relax and enjoy the uninterrupted views of the Cantabrian Sea and surrounding countryside.

We are within walking distance is the medieval town of Santillana del Mar and the Altamira National Museum which is considered to be one of Europe's leading museums of prehistory. Locally you'll also discover any number of colourful fishing villages and gorgeous sandy beaches blissfully free of crowds.

To keep the kids entertained we've an area set aside from the house for ball games. There's also a trampoline, table tennis table and a basketball hoop. We also have boogie boards, buckets and spades and sun umbrellas for the beach.

We're a family of four and originally from Berkshire, England. We also live within the property and we're always happy to offer help and advice during your stay whilst, at the same time, respecting your privacy. Please take the time to read our reviews as we try to offer more than just a roof over your head.

The spectacular Picos de Europa (Peaks of Europe) mountain range, to the south west of us, is one of the best places in Spain for hiking, climbing and various other outdoor pursuits. For those more interested in history and culture Cantabria is a treasure trove of medieval villages, ancient monuments, grandiose architectural gems and well-preserved prehistoric cave paintings. One of the region’s most precious assets is the Altamira Cave where huge multi-coloured paintings dating back 15,000 years adorn the ceiling. These days access to the cave is severely restricted but you can see a recreation of the paintings at the Altamira National Museum which is only a 15 minute walk from us. Forty five minutes drive from us is the Cabarceno Nature Reserve which is one of Cantabria’s top visitor attractions. Here you'll find all sorts of endangered and exotic creatures from five continents roaming semi-wild. The park is home to more than 500 species including elephants, leopards, bears and lions.

Whatever your level, beginner or expert, Cantabria offers a wide range of either on-road or off-road cycling. For those in search of steep trails and wild off-road routes the Picos de Europa mountain range is only an hour away. Local to us you'll find traffic free trails suitable for all ages and abilities. We can provide a safe place for your bike, cleaning facilities, general tools and, for adventurous couples, a Cannondale mountain bike tandem to explore with.

For those wishing to improve their Spanish language we can organise private tuition for all ages. If you’re considering a more permanent move to Cantabria we can provide advice about such things as residency, employment, property purchase and health care. We can also help by providing introductions to local English speaking builders, architects, estate agents, independent solicitors and council representatives. Please feel free to phone for more details.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I recently spent a few weeks in an apartment in el chaparral, and would highly recommend this location, not only for the delightful property, but also the surrounding, beautiful countryside. The apartment was warm and comfortable and equipped with just about everything to make for a very pleasant experience. The kitchen was very well equipped too, and anything extra which was needed, the host owners were more than happy to provide. There are delightful walks, spectacular views across the hills and countryside to the sea. The very popular village of Santillana is gorgeous. It has just about everything one would need. The village is only a short rural and attractive walk from the property. All in all, a very pleasant experience thanks to the friendly and welcoming owners.

Excellent comfortable family apartment

  • 5 of 5
As we are a family of 5 we stayed in apartment 1 and it suited us well. The layout was good with a double bedroom a second bedroom with a bunk bed and a single bed. The living space had room for relaxing and also eating indoors if we wanted to. Actually we most often chose to eat outside to enjoy the stunning view down to the sea.

The kitchen area was well equipped for self-catering and it was great to have a washing machine as we could pack less, fly with a budget airline and wash clothes as we needed to during our two week stay.

The apartment is well located for the beach; in fact the local beach was so lovely we never looked for another one nearby. It was a bonus to be able to borrow boogie boards from Rob and Becky who own the apartment, as our boys found the waves great for surfing and we could not have fitted body boards in our luggage.

Our 3 boys, aged 9, 7 and 5, enjoyed using the play equipment in the garden most evenings. The trampoline, basketball hoop and table tennis kept them entertained, and they especially enjoyed getting to know the 9 year old son of the owners. Rob and Becky were on site in their own house and therefore around to give advice on local museums, such as the days for free entry, or what places were good to visit. We found this really helpful and it saved a lot of tourist information centre visiting.

During our stay we visited the local town, travelled further afield to the Picos de Europa and into Asturias for canoeing on a river and we enjoyed exploring the Jurassic coast too. We found the apartment comfortable and well located for a family holiday in Northern Spain. It was made even better by Rob and Becky's welcoming and relaxed approach. I would definitely recommend a stay here for a family. We are considering visiting again another time.

Perfect Introduction to Cantabria

  • 5 of 5
Though a tad difficult to find the effort was well woth it. (included map did help alot)

Thoroughly comfortable, clean, modern and very well appointed we had a wonderful stay getting to know the beautiful area. Both Becky and Robert were gracious, helpful and discrete. Both were well versed in the local points of interest and details of the countries policies and politics. Very informative.

We highly recommend a stay with them and will return ourselves soon.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
We’ve had a fantastic 20 days at el Chaparral. If you like quiet rural holiday with a history then this place is for you. Cantabria has it all: mountains and beaches (there is such a great choice that you won’t be bored with the same one everyday). You can easily leave your childrens playing around as el Chaparral is away from main road.
We couldn’t ask for better hosts. Let lack of Spanish language capability don’t put you off as Becky and Robert are happy to book you a table at the restaurant or appointment. By the way they know great restaurant that serve huuuge I mean HUGE portions and tasty local food. Both Becky and Robert are not only great business people but also very approachable and easy to talk to.
The apartment that we had was clean and well furnished. We had separate entrance and terrace with table+chair, BBQ and stunning view from each window. Plenty of car space in front of el Chaparral in very safe area. It is very close to Santander and Bilbao where you can take ferry or plane.
If you are horse enthusiast you MUST ask Becky to book you hack/ride at the local stable and I’ll promise you wouldn’t like to get off (they have comfy western saddles) and again views - you can even go to the beach. There is plenty of walk trails in nearby woodland however if you take dog like us you need to make sure that there is no hunters before you let him off the leash. If you like sport/outdoor activities try surfing with plenty of surfing schools and shops. Go to Picos de Europa which is about 1.5 h way by car but definitely worth it. You’ll be surprised how high and steep the mountains actually are. If you have equipment, you can climb too.
We’re not big fans of museums but we recommend visiting Museo de Altamira with Neocave and of course beautiful village Santillana del Mar.
“The cave of Altamira has the privilege of being the first place in the world where the existence of rock art from the Upper Palaeolithic age was identified.”

Thank you Robert and Becky for great service and atmosphere you provided, you made us feel like at home but with better view and weather :)

Incredible experience. Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 with young children had an excellent stay at this beautiful farm. Robert and Becky could not have been more accommodating to our needs. A perfect distance from the local village we enjoyed the countryside without a car and even though it rained a few of the days, our children loved the entire experience. The apartment met our needs perfectly, providing everything necessary for a great stay, including BBQ and baking cookies. With a baby in tow, it was great for safety concerns and also introducing the kids to animals. The owners provided just the right amount of interaction and hospitality without being overbearing. Our daughter often talks about her time there and we all look forward to going back again.

The northern Spanish province of Cantabria forms a large part of the area known as Green Spain, a region far removed from the frenetic activity of Spain's southern resorts. It is easy to imagine that you are in an entirely different country. This is a traditional, still largely undiscovered part of Spain where countryside and coast combine to reward visitors with a truly unforgettable experience. We are located within walking distance of the medieval town of Santillana del Mar. To wander its network of cobbled streets has often been likened to entering a living museum. There's absolutely no doubt that Santillana is one of the most perfectly preserved medieval villages anywhere in Spain. All around us you'll find some of the most spectacularly beautiful countryside imaginable. All along the Cantabrian coastline you'll also discover any number of gorgeous sandy beaches blissfully free of crowds. Playa del Luaña in Cobreces, our nearest family beach, is only 10 minutes away.

Thanks to Cantabria’s climate, the local golf courses are well-watered and well-kept. Probably the best of them is the Real Club de Golf de Pedreña, with its position overlooking the Bay of Santander, making it one of Spain’s finest. It was designed by Severiano Ballesteros, who was born in Cantabria.

Alto Campóo Ski Resort lies between the Cuchillon, El Chivo and Tres Mares mountains. Here you'll find 19km of ski and snowboard runs. The resort offers magnificent facilities for family skiing and offers some of the best views in all of Spain.
