An excellent family holiday in Northern Spain

We travelled to Spain on the overnight Brittany ferry arriving into Santander - with two young children and lots of entertainment on the ferry, that was an adventure in itself! From Santander, we drove our car along the coast and to a town called Nava, the heart of "sidre" country where we stayed for several nights in a mountain cottage.

We travelled to Spain on the overnight Brittany ferry arriving into Santander - with two young children and lots of entertainment on the ferry, that was an adventure in itself! From Santander, we drove our car along the coast and to a town called Nava, the heart of "sidre" country where we stayed for several nights in a mountain cottage. This was followed by a wonderful few days in Comillas on the coast at Casita Rikke - let and organised for us by Andy at Casas. The accommodation was perfect for our family of four, with a sweet upstairs bedroom for the children, and their own play area outside their room and then a cosy living area and separate double bedroom and family bathroom for us downstairs. The house had all the utensils and other items that you could need (too often we find that there is no tin opener or no cheese grater and the property is impractical) which made self-catering easy. Our children also loved the few toys available in the property, and we were able to enjoy the burner each night which kept us cosy and warm on the greyer days. We sadly left Comillas after just a few days (we would have stayed longer) but moved on to Bilbao for the sights of the Guggenheim and much more besides before our return ferry home to England.

Rating for tour operator:

Andy was very helpful throughout booking and during our stay - explaining to us the layout and amenities of the property in detail so we knew what to expect with the children, and even helping us on another part of our holiday not booked through Casas. The information provided by Casas of things to do and restaurants and so on was also very useful and Andy was kind in providing the information for all regions of northern Spain (about which he seemed very knowledgable), and not just for the Comillas area. We would highly recommend his services.

And thanks for those kind words! We really do try to go that little bit further to ensure you get the very best out of your holiday in northern Spain and it's so rewarding when that's appreciated. Hope to hear from you again sometime in the future
