Sandy beaches and steep cliffs
This region is probably one of the best kept secrets of Spain. There is no mass tourism, and yet it is a beautiful and very privileged area, with a wide variety of contrasting landscapes. It has a beautiful, 200km long coastline, where sandy beaches are divided by steep cliffs. There are more than 90 beaches to choose from; one of the most spectacular and longest beaches on the northern coast is only 20 minutes away from us. Good to relax and get some fresh air or suntan after your Spanish lessons.
Soft green hills and peaked mountains
Further inland, the peaked mountains with their river valleys provide a captivating contrast to the soft hills and green meadows. The most famous mountains are the Picos de Europa, (it takes about 1,5 hours by car), however, there are numerous mountains and mountain passes closer by (within 20 minutes from the village), offering breathtaking views, wonderful walks and lots of opportunities to practise your Spanish. Why not rehearse your Spanish vocabulary on the top of a mountain?
If you don’t like climbing the mountains, why not immerse yourself into the subterranean paradise of Cantabria, with many caves to be visited? El Soplao, with one of the world’s greatest collections of stalactites, stalagmites and eccentric formations, or El Castillo and Las Monedas, with some of the world’s most ancient Palaeolithic paintings, are definitely worth a visit.
