Enlightening Odyssey In Northern Spain

Two centre, DIY fly drive, of Northern Spain using Casa Cantabricas to source our accommodation. This is now our norm to book our own flights, arrange our own car hire and source our own accommodation. Works well for us but can carry risk as currently you won't have ATOL / AITO protection should a carrier fail. I have never visited the north west coast of Spain and was persuaded too. What a revelation. Lush, verdant, mountainous and 'alp' like...

Two centre, DIY fly drive, of Northern Spain using Casa Cantabricas to source our accommodation. This is now our norm to book our own flights, arrange our own car hire and source our own accommodation. Works well for us but can carry risk as currently you won't have ATOL / AITO protection should a carrier fail. I have never visited the north west coast of Spain and was persuaded too. What a revelation. Lush, verdant, mountainous and 'alp' like. Simply stunning and a warm, welcoming populace too. Excellent roads and so lightly used. We booked two properties, both fairly remote but in total contrast to each other. One being suited strictly to two while the other slept six with ease. In each case the properties were exactly as described. We will certainly return to the region.

Rating for tour operator:

From first use of their website to leaving Spain we really can't fault them. Booking and payment was straight forward. One of our first choices of accommodation wasn't available, the one Casa Cantabricas suggested in its stead was wonderful and fitted the bill perfectly. E mail contact, the delivery of directions to the casas was good. Their app surprisingly good and thorough too. It allowed access to all required documents to back up the ones we had printed. Quite simply everything worked. The properties booked were exactly as described on the website.

Fascinating and welcoming experience in an unexpectedly beautiful place

We stayed in very high quality and beautifully restored accommodation next door to our welcoming and helpful hosts. We were able to properly explore the fascinating area through making use of our hosts' local knowledge. They even invited to accompany us to the local village fiesta and introduce us to the locals.

Rating for tour operator:

Casas Cantabricas were very helpful throughout the booking process, in answering pre-holiday questions, providing assistance when we were delayed and in providing information at the accommodation. A 5-star experience.
