Many tourists love beaches, while others prefer to spend time in the mountains. Small hotels in Cantabria are the perfect accommodations for those who want to be close to the water and the peaks in a more intimate setting while relaxing in their hotel. The varied landscape in between these two extremes adds to the appeal of the region and its small hotels. Cantabria, one of Spain’s smaller regions, is also home to the Caves of Altamira, where tourists can marvel at prehistoric drawings. Many of the small hotels in Cantabria are located in Santander, the regional capital. Countless festivals take place annually in Santander, most of which have a religious background, and the museums give insight into both the city and the region.
