The
Experience

Gaze on huge views – from the hammock in the garden to the carved balcony above. Surrounded by pastures, woods and gentle hills, this 18th-century building stands in little Carmona. Both house and village are beautifully preserved.

You feel at home the moment you walk in, thanks to hosts Lucia and Fernando. A narrow hall leads to a wooden stair and bedrooms above (the bigger two in the attic). Pour yourself drinks from the honesty bar, look forward to tapas at supper. Breakfast is a speciality here (local, varied and delicious) and at weekends you can sample their ‘cocido montañes’, the famous Cantabrian stew.

Cyclists will be happy, and this mountainous terrain is home to the ‘10,000 El Soplao’ every May. There are surfing beaches in the north, and Michelin stars in Santander. Put your foot on the pedal and you can be there in an hour.

Reviews

La Infinita is situated in a tiny stone village, full of charm, surrounded by peaceful countryside. Less than an hour from Santander, but far away from anything you can imagine. Hosts Lucia and Fernando are a friendly couple who fled the stress of city life to make their home in Green Spain. This an ideal base for active holidays if you enjoy walking, cycling, surfing or golf. Also a good destination for those looking to take it easy, enjoy the regional cuisine, stroll around the village and take a drive on winding roads with lovely views.

Location

The neighbourhood

The cobbled village of Carmona is a delight to wander, and its restaurant-bar, Posada El Puente, is a three-minute stroll. The village is set in a green region known for outdoor pursuits, especially hiking and biking. Cantabria is also renowned for its caves, from the stunning crystals of Cueva de El Soplao (13km) to the cave paintings of Cueva de Altamira (40km). Cantabria’s capital Santander (65km) has handsome belle-époque buildings, great sweeping beaches, and some of the most exciting restaurants in Spain.

Local points of interest from Fernando De Otto Samaniego

  • Las Lindes Church: walking from La Infinita, follow a beautiful path that arrives at this Small XVII Church. The views from there are spectacular. The walk is 4km and a little bit uphill so that you can take in views of the valley
  • Lamiña Waterfalls: Just 10km from La Infinita, there's a nice walk following Saja river rivera that arrives at a wonderful area full of waterfalls where you will have the chance to have a wild swim
  • San Vicente de La Barquera is one of the most popular fishing villages in the north coast. This is the perfect place to enjoy seafood and one of the most stunning beaches in Cantabria, Oyambre Beach which stretches over more than 6km. Relax or try surfing!
  • Comillas is an old village where high society people use to holiday in the past. You will see magnificent buildings including El Capricho de Gaudi, one of the most popular buildings from this incredible architect, creator of La Sagrada Familia
  • Santillana del Mar: Another beautiful stone village, part of EL Camino de Santiago. Walking around the streets is something magical. You can also enjoy their famous caves with one of the oldest prehistoric paintings in the world
  • The stunning park of Picos de Europa, one of the first National Parks in Europe, has one of the best mountain views you ever can imagine. Once you are there you cannot forget to visit Potes and Fuente Dé
