Beaches & Coast:
Superb beaches are only 5 -13 minutes drive or 3 km - 18km from the house. Some of the very best soft sandy beaches in Spain are located in this part of Northern Spain. These include Berria, Trengandin, Ris, Isla, Ajo, Langre, Loredo, Galizano and Somo. This area known as the Trasmiera Coast is noted for it´s long, fine sand beaches. They are extremely popular with surfers and water sport enthusiasts. There are many surf schools in the area and the first surfboards made in Spain were made here. Only slightly further are the beaches of Santander city which can be enjoyably accessed by the Los Reginas foot passenger ferry from Somo or Pedrena. And between each of the beaches mentioned are beautiful areas of high and low coast, important marshland areas and woodland offering lovely walks and stunning scenery. See videos of the area below.
Surfing for all levels is tremendous in this area. The owners of Casa Castillo would be happy to arrange for surf classes with one of the best surf schools in the area should any guests be interested. Classes are run by fluent English speakers and cater for all levels.

About the owner
I live here Cantabria with my wife who is Spanish and our two daughters. Cantabria has been our home since 2004 and prior to that we have lived in the Basque Country, the USA, Britain, Australia and Ireland. We enjoy travel and we have a keen understanding of the needs of holidaymakers as we both work in the tourism. You can count on us to ensure that our rental property (it is not our main residence) is exactly as described and that we´ll do all possible to ensure that our guests are as comfortable as possible while staying. We´re easily reached should guests need to contact us during their stay and we´re a mine of knowledge about the Cantabria area which we´d be happy to share with guests.
Cantabria is a place that my family and I love for it´s stunning countryside, superb coastline, excellent cuisine and all round good quality of life. It is a terrific place for a relaxing holiday with plenty of interesting and enjoyable things to see and do for all the family. It hasn´t been spoiled by mass tourism and is still very much off the beaten path.
Our property is located within the Trasmiera Ecopark which itself was awarded in 2011 membership of EDEN an acronym for European Destinations of Excellence.
We love the ease of access to pretty Santander, historic Santillana del Mar, Asturias and the Picos de Europa Mountains, Bilbao, San Sebastian and the Rioja wine region. We moved here for all the above reasons and specifically to this house (it is not our main residence anymore) for it´s comfort and space, it´s location in an authentic Cantabrian village, it´s close access to many fine beaches and coastline, it´s mountain and woodland surroundings and it´s ease of access to all the great places mentioned above.
ISAF SAILING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SANTANDER SEPTEMBER 2014
Our house is an ideal base for competitors and visitors wanting to attend the ISAF Sailing World Championships in Santander in September 2014 as it is only 20 - 25 minutes by motorway from Santander city and it offers an economical alternative to costly Santander city hotels.
Our house is a home-away-from-home for our guests. A cliche but true. It´s sturdy, very well kept, spacious, comfortable, centrally heated, well furnished and well equipped. People don´t go on holidays to be less comfortable than they would be at home and at our house they won´t be. As this is our rental property guests will not find our personal belongings lying around in wardrobes and cupboards. Once guests unpack, they´ll feel right at home. The house has 3 roomy and bright bedrooms with new beds, 2 fully fitted bathrooms, a modern, well equipped kitchen and a spacious basement laundry with plentiful storage space. The well tended garden is ample and peaceful. For our English speaking guests we have SKY TV installed. All bedlinen & towels including beachtowels are supplied.
