    hi, you may find it too snowy . you can see snow on the hills as you land at santander .
    we do it on the way back in april . still can be very snowy . we watch the snow every morning in april while parked up near san vicente de barquuera . fresh most mornings .but its usually ok to either get from riano to ribadesella via congas de onis or to san vicente via potes . but be careful. its narrow . we are in trucks so you will be ok .
    all that area and the coast there are the best part of spain in my book . shame its not just that bit warmer in winter . it can be almost ok by the coast .
    friends were there in june still snow on the ground .
    but great area . best done in spring . but have fun i,m sure you will.
