Our beach house is located right on the surf spot!

The Atlantic coast of Cantabria in northern Spain, the "Costa Verde", is called the "Green Coast”.

The national park ” Picos de Europa” begins only 20km from the ocean, the mountain peaks are over 2600 m high.

The many surf spots (three in front of the door) in the area offer ideal conditions for beginners up to experts and the long sandy beaches are a paradise for sun lovers. Georges rivers, meadows and forests are a delight for nature lovers and offer pure relaxation. In addition to surfing and the usual beach sports, everybody can use our bowling, beach tennis…, try balancing on the Indo Board or slackline walking. You can try climbing and hiking in the Picos ", rafting, horseback riding ore scuba diving. You also can rent high quality mountain bikes to explore the park.

Ich hatte eine wirklich tolle Woche und wäre gern länger geblieben. Entspannte Atmosphäre, ein nettes Team, tolle Wellen und großartiges Essen haben die Tage wie im Flug vergehen lassen.
Ich komme sicher nochmal wieder!
