Considering living in Santander for the whole summer

by jane11e

My husband and I and 2 daughters ages 6 and 7 are considering living in Santander for the entire summer (June thru Aug) so we can improve our Spanish and immerse ourselves in a different culture. (We're also considering Zaragoza.) We are wondering which neighborhood(s) in Santander are best for a family to live in, and whether this is a good city for a family to immerse itself in. We live in Northern California. Any advice? Thanks!

Hello :
Santander is a nice town in the coast with nice beaches and good standard for living
From June to August you may rent an apartment for living, as at that time of the year ( June ) the students are leaving free many flats and the prices will not be so high as they may be in August , that is the peak season for Santander
For children is a nice town with many activities and no far away you may do interesting visits to the mountains , beaches...
Weather is mild , though you may have rain , this is the reason that this area is so green
If you are studying Spanish you may be interested in the Universidad Menedez Pelayo ( ) as they have a great experience in Spanish courses for foreign students
There are many good neighbourhoods for living , it depends on your budget and preferences : down-town , beaches , flats , house , the surrounds...
Here you will not find too many foreigners as most of the tourism we have is National
Zaragoza is very nice but very different
Any decision you take will be good for you and your children and you will expend an unforgettable summer in Spain

Buen viaje!!!

Long story short; Santander is one of the most beautifully situated cities in Spain, in a very beautifull bay with El Puntal beach, a magnificent atlantic beach, just across the harbour plus two beaches in the city itself just in case you like swimming and sunbathing. Santander has a lot to offer on culture too, frequent concerts and shows, art exhibitions, makes this town a gem. Santander is one of the most beautifull and welcoming cities in Spain. Santander airport has flights to Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Barcelona and other cities in Spain plus London, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Milan, Frankfurt, Rome, Pisa, Milan in the rest of EU.Santander is well served by air for its size. Ferry line takes you to Plymouth and Portsmouth in the UK, this ferry line is used by whalewachers, and other passengers of course, for whale spotting on the bay of Biscay.

Thank you all for this very helpful information! Santander does sound very attractive. We are now debating between Santander, Valencia, or a combination.

My one concern about Santander is that it would be too cold. Too bad there is no way to predict the weather. :)

Thanks again for your input!

La Bahía - The Bay

by elpariente

Santander está en la parte norte de una de las bahías más bonitas del mundo .
Cuando te orientas en Santander , ya puedes distinguir el mar abierto de la bahía , cuesta poco , pero es muy fácil
La bahía tiene su entrada flanqueda por el palacio de la Magdalena , la Isla de Mouro y las Quebrantas , al fondo de la misma se encuentran los muelles y la zona industrial .
La bahía es el sitio ideal para hacer un montón de actividades :

Santander is in the northern part of one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
When you are in Santander you must distinguish the open sea of the bay to get orientated , it takes some time , but it is very easy
The bay is flanked at the entrance by the palace of La Magdalena, Isla de Mouro and the Quebrantas and in the bottom of it are the docks , the airport and the industrial area.
The bay is the perfect place for a lot of activities:

Liendo. 5km from Laredo there...

by Andares

Liendo. 5km from Laredo there is a small village called Liendo. It is not very touristy, you can still smell that typical 'cow scent', to put it nicely...
If you happen to pass by and feel like a beer or coffee, you ABSOLUTELY MUST stop by a bar named 'Los Topos', especially if the weather is good! It is a small wooden house with a garden with trees and tables to sit at. The owner, a very pleasant guy, seems to be an ex-hippy and likes to play David Bowie, Janis Joplin, Lou Reed and all the old good ones. It is cheap too. If you sit out there on a summer night and watch the stars you will never forget it... Don't miss it, especially if you like real places and not those new, fancy clubs with little personality.

There are a lot of great Fish...

by wiegandg

There are a lot of great Fish and Seafood restaurants
near the town hall and Paseo Pereda. One of my favourites is Casa San Miguel, where you get a great
choice of dishes, like Lubina a la plancha, gambas al ajillo or Salpicon. Try also the Tapa-bars. All kinds of fresh fish and seafood. Try the Rioja-wines or sherries. The Different sorts of cheese and meat are excellent: try queso manchego or Chorizo.
My favorite racion: Bacalao con tomate. Sorry, I don´t know the translations in English.

Mountains. Liebana Valley (Picos de Europa), Reserva del Saja, Puerto de Lunada.
