Property Details
A new 4th floor apartment of approx 100 sq m, overlooking the beach and close to the centre of this picturesque fishing town on the North coast of Spain. It sleeps 4/5 comfortably in three bedrooms. There are two bathrooms (one en suite) one living/dining room a kitchen and a small balcony with views of the beach and sea. There are wooden floors throughout, full central heating and ceiling fans in all bedrooms. The kitchen has what you would expect, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, electric oven and halogen top. There is a TV (Spanish only at the moment) and video and DVD player (DVDs in English). The central market is close by and the old part of the town (tapas bars, restaurants, supermarkets etc) is a few minutes walk away on the flat. The block is small (only 15 apartments) and there is a lift to all floors. As it faces the Atlantic, you go to sleep with the sound of the sea in your ears.
Area Details
Castro lies on the coast at the eastern end of the Autonomous Region of Cantabria. It is closer to Bilbao (10 miles) than it is to the capital of Cantabria, Santander (about 40 miles). It is a fishing town and has a small picturesque harbour which shelters the fishing fleet. It is very popular with the people of Bilbao, who flock out at weekends and public holidays to enjoy its many tapas bars and restaurants. The northern coast of Spain is quite different from the Mediterranean coast, consisting of wide, clean, sea-washed beaches (empty for most of the year) and spectacular mountain scenery. Besides Bilbao with its Guggenheim and medieval quarter of narrow streets with small shops, there is the little gem of Santillana del Mar, the caves of Altamira (known as the Sistine chapel of paleolithic art) the hidden valleys and peaks of the Picos de Europe and at least half a dozen nature reserves. The Basque region of France is only two hours away by motorway, as is the Rioja wine growing region.

This part of Spain is famous for its tapas, and for its fiestas. Hardly a month goes by without a fiesta; there are four in June, four in July and two in August.

Castro does not see many foreign tourists, most of its visitors are from other parts of Spain, so it remains very Spanish in character.
Travel Details
Public transport is good. There are frequent small urban buses which connect the two ends of the town and the outlying villages. There is a half-hourly bus service to Bilbao throughout the day, bus stop outside the apartment. There are buses to Santander and onwards to Asturias. You can get to the apartment from Bilbao airport by public transport.
