With its towers peering out over the mythical valleys of Cantabria, this converted palace gives a fairy tale slant on the fiery culture, archaeological wonders and vivid flavours of an enchantingly overlooked Spanish region. Cantabria’s secret heritage arises in its local legends, superstitions, and thriving Celtic folk festivals, but its legacy goes back further, with the area being home to some of the oldest cave painting on the planet. By contrast, the regional capital of Santander abounds with distinctive architecture, cosmopolitan shopping, and lively restaurants and bars.

Rich in rural splendor, this 17th century country house has been transformed into a plush four star hotel, and weds antique stylings with modern comforts such as an outdoor swimming pool, sauna, and fitness centre to delicious effect. The on-site restaurant flaunts its traditional Cantabrian cuisine in an intimate, stone-walled room, while the kitchen keeps things simple with straightforward dishes prepared with local produce where possible. Warm receptions are in plentiful supply at the bar, which complements its sparkling selection of tipples with a roaring fireplace. The hotel’s handsome rooms are all elegantly decked out with individual details and antique furnishings, while windows look out onto the uplifting surrounds of the El Alto Ason valleys.
Get some fresh air in the foothills of the Natural Park of Ason Collados, where hiking and mountain biking trips may be embarked upon; or stray further afield to visit one of the regions’ various prehistoric caves. Housing both man-made and natural wonders, many of these cave areas are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and both the astonishing speleothems of El Soplao and 18,000 year old Paleolithic cave paintings documented at the National Museum and Research Center of Altamira should be at the top of ‘to do’ lists. After all that walking, re-charge and dazzle taste buds with a trip to the Bay of Biscay, where waters of yield a colourful supply of seafood, ranging from potent anchovies to lobster, red mullet, and gilt-head bream.

TripAdvisorsaward Hotel Torre de Ruesga a favourable 4/5 stars. Reviewers heap praise upon the scenic rural setting, accommodating staff, fine cuisine and locally sourced produce.
All staff are excellent, with a willingness to help whenever needed. The restaurant serves local food in season, and we enjoyed a wonderful gastronomic meal accompanied by Spanish wines.
