The property is located in the centre of the town of Comillas, a coastal town in the western part of Cantabria between Santillana del Mar and San Vicente de la Barquera, 48 km from Santander. Declared a Historic-Artistic Site, it is considered one of the most beautiful and emblematic towns in Cantabria, a noble and aristocratic town set on the hills of the western coast of Cantabria. The Marquis of Comillas was its driving force, founder of the Pontifical University. With great architectural prestige, numerous modernist buildings, such as the Palacio de Sobre llano and its Pantheon Chapel. The Pontifical University with its characteristic reddish colour and its wooden coffered ceilings, or “El Capricho”, a clearly modernist palace designed by the famous architect Antonio Gaudí. Comillas perfectly combines the mountains, the beach, the port and an enviable architecture.
It was the summer resort of Alfonso XII and the high bourgeoisie, a mixture of aristocracy and modernism. Its own style…

This property enjoys South, West and North orientation.

The property forms part of the catalogue of buildings protected by the heritage of Cantabria. This mansion is one of the most emblematic in Comillas, both for its architectural and historical value and for its location, well before the great urban and artistic development promoted by the arrival from 1860 of Don Antonio López, in all his social and economic splendour, which was manifested with the construction in the 18th century of the great Modernist buildings, the mansions of his family and social environment and the ensembles that embellished the town of Comillas.

Ashlar façade facing the Corro de San Pedro, with a tree-lined garden enclosed by a wall to the north. It has a balcony overlooking the square, a gabled roof and two storeys.

It has wonderful views and access from three streets. The main façade, with access from one of the most picturesque squares in Comillas. Access to the interior of the property for wheeled vehicles, with permanent ford. Third access, from a pedestrian street.


It was conceived as a family summer house, and maintains the distribution of the period. It needs updating of the installations and refurbishment with a new distribution, adapted to the needs of the future owner.

It is easily divisible into three large independent floors.

It has undergone general maintenance and is in good condition, except for the ground floor. All the exteriors are made of stone, wood and wrought iron and it preserves its original character in the interior.

We believe that the best approach to the house, due to its central location and characteristics, is tourism, in all its possible versions, from a boutique hotel to a tourist hotel operation. It is already a trend to convert historic buildings into boutique hotels, enhanced with a gastronomic offer within the project. A new life for this unique property is to become one of the most fashionable places to stay in Comillas, with year-round occupancy.

“A mansion with history, in the centre of Comillas, 10 minutes away from the most valued beaches by surf lovers and for international travellers, seekers of places and experiences”.
