“I spent 2 weeks in San Vicente de la Barquera (Cantabria) and would have loved to have stayed longer! The apartment was lovely and very clean. It had all one would need and plenty of reading material, too. It was very well located next to three lovely beaches - all next to each other. This was so convenient after a long day in the sun - not too far to walk to the apartment. The little town of San Vicente de la Barquera was accessed by walking across a beautiful bridge containing 25 arches. It was a picturesque small town which had a good bus service to Comillas, Santillana del Mar, Santander etc to the east and LLanes, Gijón etc going west. There were lots of small eateries next to the apartment and a wider selection of restaurants in the town. If you are a fish/sea-food lover, this is the area for you, I found the people in the area extremely friendly and I was met at the bus-station by Carmina who takes care of the apartment for Javier and family. She was so helpful. The location is very good for exploring little towns in Cantabria. The back-drop of the Cantabrian mountains --which can be seen from the beach- makes a wonderful vista. Yes, I would highly reccommend Javier\'s apartment and San Vicente de la Barquera as a holiday destination. Thank you Javier and family for the opportunity to holiday there. It was unforgettable - the apartment, the beach, the sun, the music and, of course, the wine (so cheap)!”

““San Vincente is a perfect start for exploring the Picos de Europa and the lovely region. Also it is a splendid place to relax and enjoy the magnificent beaches. Javier and Monica prepared their apartment for a comfortable stay. We felt very welcome. Within walking distance we found restaurants and shops. And above all: the beach. During our exchange we kept in touch, they provided us with lots of tips to make our stay an unforgettable one. Thanks for a wonderful holiday! Marianne and Ruud.””

Where is it?
El barrio es tranquilo y muy familiar. Tiene fácil aparcamiento. Está bien comunicado por carretera y sendero con el pueblo. Por la autovía del Cantábrico, se está en cualquier destino en minutos.
El apartamento está a 100 metros de una magnífica playa casi virgen, muy apta para el baño, el paseo y para el surf. Son actividades que nosotros hacemos a diario cuando estamos allí (bueno, surfista es mi hija). Igualmente, es una zona tranquila con los servicios básicos que una familia pueda necesitar: supermercado, tiendas básicas, restaurantes, bares... En el pueblo de San Vicente, hay centro de salud y estamos muy cerca de Torrelavega (hospital) y Santander (capital de la región).
En las cercanías hay un mundo maravilloso: los Picos de Europa con cumbres de 3.000 metros, geniales para hacer montañismo o senderismo. Están a media hora de coche. Las playas cercanas son una maravilla, al igual que la costa. Hay actividades para todos los gustos y una gastronomía de primera.
Nunca quisimos tener una segunda casa pero la zona nos encantó. Yo monto mucho en bicicleta, tanto de carretera como BTT y es el paraíso para ello.
teniendo coche se abre un mundo inmenso: Asturias con Oviedo y Gijón cerca; Santander y las ciudades costeras del este de Cantabria; el interior con los valles entre grandes montañas que te parecen estar en Suiza; el País Vasco, con Bilbao a menos de 1 hora y media.
No sé, es tan difícil recoger en unas líneas todas las posibilidades.
