Traditionally a destination for Spaniards escaping the soaring temperatures of the South in July and August, Cantabria in Northern Spain is now attracting international visitors thanks to great connections by plane with Ryanair and ferry with Brittany Ferries.

And the fact that it hasn’t been spoiled by mass tourism and is still very much off the beaten path is very appealing for a family holiday.
