Spain, on Europe’s Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. The capital, Madrid, is home to the Royal Palace and singular Prado museum, housing works by European masters, and Segovia to the north has a fairy-tale medieval castle and Roman aqueduct. Catalonia’s capital is Barcelona.
Cantabria in Northern Spain offers a stunning coastline, an enviable range of historic villages and ports and the beautiful Picos de Europa mountains. Our 4* hotel has a spectacular setting in the village of Isla, overlooking the bay and close to Santander, a perfect base to enjoy this picturesque corner of northern Spain. We include fabulous excursions and wine & mineral water each night in the hotel.
