Villaverde de Pontones is a village located 15 minutes from the city of Santander and 45 from Bilbao. Both city airports offer many and cheap flights with Ryanair, Easy Jet and Iberia. There are frequent Brittany ferry connections with the UK on a weekly basis. Cantabria is most known for its great possibilities concerning ‘active holidays’: Climbing, surfing, sailing, swimming, paragliding, golf, horse-riding…, and it has consolidated as a very popular holiday spot for Spaniards. The village is lively and maintains the charming rural image with its 350 inhabitants. The ‘El Cenador de Amós’ is a Michelin-awarded restaurant, rated in the top six in Spain and organizes a lot of beautiful wedding parties. There is a supermarket, bakery, bars, bank, playgrounds, church, pharmacy, etc.
The house is located away from the ‘main street’ image and instead surrounded by the spectacular views of the local regional mountains, aged and established forestry, monasteries, a small creek and animals enjoying the green hills. The interior of the house is functional, bright and perfect for children. At the same time the fantastic views from every room, decorative chimney and the choice of warm materials give the house a cozy and homely feeling. The large spacious living room and integrated kitchen are in harmony to the natural beauty of the area and with an open porch leading directly to the outside garden; the functional space of the house and the local beauty of the area are brought together.
Vær så venlige ikke at ryge indenfor i huset og generelt at passe på husets interiør.
Muy buena experiencia en casa de Pauline. Su suegro Tomas nos dio la bienvenida y fue muy amable enseñándonos todos los detalles de la casa. Súper cómoda y muy bien situada para nuestro viaje de golf en Pedreña. El año que viene volveremos seguro!
Jolie maison dans une zone rural
Idéal pour des vacances au calme dans une région à découvrir
Enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Tomas and Pauline's house - it's a lovely property in a idyllic country setting. The house is v well equipped and has all the comforts of home. Lots of beaches just a short drive away, langre and galizano in particular are stunning. Thanks Pauline and Tomas!
Thanks a lot, Chris. We rent the house during the peak summer months and we usually pre-rent it too. We advertise the house on the (website hidden) site as well. Most of our guests are from the UK. July and August are normally fully-booked already in January or February...

La casa está tal y como aparece en las fotos, está muy cuidada y limpia.
La localización es perfecta para visitar Cantabria, muy cerca de Santander y de la A8. El entorno de la casa es muy bonito y tranquilo, a las afueras pero muy cerca del centro de Villaverde de Pontones, donde recomiendo una velada en el Cenador de Amós.
Es estupenda para una familia con niños, pero si van muchos adultos algunas camas se quedan pequeñas y puede llegar a ser incómodo.
El trato con los dueños ha sido perfecto, no hemos tenido problemas para organizarnos con ellos.

We are a Spanish-Danish family with three children who has always tried to live in both countries at the same time. With help from a very good architect we made the house with all our love, effort and best experiences from Denmark and Spain. Since we are now living in Denmark most of the year, we offer other families the opportunity to enjoy the house meanwhile. We speak and write English, Spanish, Danish/Swedish/Norwegian and some Italian, French, German and Portuguese. Please feel free to ask and we will prepare your stay the best we can!
