A wonderful week discovering the delights of Asturias and Cantabria

We had a brilliant week in northern Spain,discovering an area previously unknown to us and a world away from the Costas and heavily developed islands. Our booking was processed quickly and efficiently, the hire car was ready on arrival and a much better one that we had anticipated. The Palacio de Libardon, our home for the first two nights was delightful and within easy reach of the coast. El Hoyal in Pesgauro up in the Picos de Europa was a more simple B&B, but absolutely spotless and with good food and a good base for walking in the mountains. Hotel Siglo XVIII just outside Santillana del Mar was also very pleasant and again well located for short trips out exploring.
