Overview

This lovely little Asturian cottage is situated in the Sierra del Sueve, the pretty range of misty hills that rises up almost directly from the Atlantic coastline. It’s walking distance to the village bar and restaurant and 40 minutes’ drive from beaches.

The views tell the story.

It’s not just a gorgeous location: it’s a great base for holiday options, too. There’s walking in the Sueve itself, in the Picos de Europa, swimming at well cared-for beaches, visits to fishing villages (Lastres and Tazones are especially recommended), strolls round tiny, ancient hamlets like Espinaredo, not to mention the justly famed local cuisine and sampling different sorts of cider and cheese… there’s even a top quality Japanese restaurant nearby.

The accommodation is traditional on the outside and modern on the inside. It’s very neat, uncomplicated and sunny. The large windows that wrap round the upstairs living area like a gallery mean that fabulous views are ever present: you can open the windows and really breathe in Asturias.

The upstairs room is a bright, wood-floored and open-plan living/dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has built-in appliances that keep it tidy and a large worktop for food preparation. The views are of a grand, evergreen valley that sweeps down from the Sierra del Sueve with the Picos de Europa in the distance (40 minutes by car: not far). All you see are cows, hillsides, forests and the rugged scenery of the Picos – looking more alpine Swiss than Spanish – daubed with snow patches.

A staircase takes you down to a double bedroom and a small hallway off which the shower room/WC leads. Doors open from the bedroom to a 20 m² terrace with two garden chairs. The upper gallery is supported by wooden pillars to provide a measure of shade, but most people prefer to sit out in the sun. Alongside is a small garden area.

The cottage is located 13 km from Infiesto on the edge of the pretty hamlet of Anayo, along a lane that takes you into deep tranquillity and privacy, with very few houses nearby and not disturbing your independence and peace and quiet.

About 150 metres from the house is a traditional bar-restaurant whose set meal of the day promises a generous serving of tasty home-cooked food. It’s the kind of place where old men play cards and other local games. Well off the beaten track. There’s no written menu, instead the cook will tell you – or show you – what’s cooking. Food can also be ordered to be taken away.

For a touch of sophistication, the Japanese restaurant in Robledo de Anayo (just 10 minutes from the cottage) is regarded by many as the best in Asturias. It’s pretty special and needs to be booked in advance. Once again, the views are wonderful.

Holidays here place you in a traditional culture, where people maintain many customs including the celebration of fairs: do ask when you’re there if there’s a feria on somewhere, as it’s not something to be missed or readily forgotten.

Otherwise, the Sueve hills and majestic Picos mountains have trails and vistas to keep you rambling almost endlessly, and if you long for the sea, it’s only a short drive.

The well preserved fishing village of Lastres, for example, is only 40 minutes away. Right by Lastres and overlooking the sea (you can make it out in the distance in one of the photos) is the Jurassic Museum, which celebrates the major find of dinosaur remains here. On the sandy beach below you can see fossilized dinosaur footprints.

The string of beaches along the cliff-lined coast range from the barely discovered and semi-wild to quite busy (but only by Northern Spain standards) little coves. 

If you need to connect to Internet during your stay, the forward-thinking local townhall in Infiesto (13 km) provides free Internet with computers provided at a municipal centre. There's also WiFi at certain café-bars if you bring a laptop or similar.

YOUR REVIEWS

Lydia | September | 2016

We thought the views were even more fantastic than on the website picture. There was a constant lovely chime of bells from the animals in the fields nearby ,which reminded me of my time as a mountain cattle herder in the Alps. The kitchen had all the necessities even basics like coffee and oil was there. The sofa was very comfortable even to sleep on. Books to read and lots of walks and day tours by car nearby possible. Shower was good. We felt very safe there and secluded. We loved it . There were only 2 little things I cld not get the iron to work, but I did not expect there to be an iron in the first place anyway so no big deal. The bedroom stayed nice and cool during day when hot but I found it too foisty to sleep in at night so I slept upstairs, did not affect my partner though."

Rustical Update

We have informed the property manager about the iron not working.

This Cottage is very modern and well presented. Situated in an area of immense natural beauty it affords the visitor an opportunity to relax and unwind while enjoying unrivalled mountain views. Belen, our hostess was very friendly and helpful. The location, while remote is only a short drive to town amenities in L'Infiestu and other towns. The tranquility of Espinaredo is not to be missed and for hiking enthusiasts there are opportunities within reach by car."

An absolutely delightful break. The cottage is small but perfect for two-the view is breathtaking. Great local bar at the end of the road; genuine warm welcome and very helpful. A lovely region to explore but having a car is essential."

Philippa | August | 2016

A stunningly situated cottage. Inside though: - there were lots of info leaflets but unfortunately most were quite elderly! It would be nice if you could stock with info about things happening in the current year - especially since there's no wifi to check up on events. We were only there a week and a "head Start" would have been useful. - bedding - yes the room was 'bijou' but that would be improved with some modern fresh bedding - especially some decent, comfortable pillows."

Rustical Update

We provide local information to our clients along with the directions to the property. It is important to remember to print them out beforehand.

We had a really great time. The accommodation is wonderful and every necessity has been thought of. Only thing missing is Wifi! Everyone in the village was very friendly. We met the owner one morning, a very nice man. Only one comment: the shower tray was slow to drain so may need clearing of hair, etc. We will keep your details handy for other holidays.

Rustical Update

The caretaker has been informed about the shower draining slow and will fix straight away.

We loved our week at AT17. The house was lovely with everything you could want and so peaceful and quiet. The views were amazing!! The local restaurant served great food. We look forward to using Rustical Travel again when we have our next Spanish holiday!"

We spent two weeks at this property which met all our needs was very relaxing and the view from the wrap around windows were ever changing.Amazing! The Bolero at the top of the road is a good place to eat and drink[very cheap but excellent] and to meet the friendly locals.Learn a little spanish and use an app on your phone it is appreciated.We are hoping to return to Northern Spain next year and will use Rustical Travel again as we found them so helpful."

Patrick | August | 2015

We absolutely loved the place. Very quiet. Practically the only thing you can hear is the odd cowbell. The view is utterly spectacular and can change hourly. The place itself was perfectly comfortable, well equipped and clean. We were met by the key holder who showed us round and then said just shut the door when you leave at the end of the week. So simple. The neighbours very kindly allowed us to park our bike under their grain store for the week which was welcome protection from the rain - which only happened once! With regards the weather, it was much cooler in the mountains, and quite changeable - much like an English summer - but the hot days were glorious! We never actually made it to the bar. We were too busy exploring the mountains on our motorbike. This place is not for somebody who wants a beach holiday as it's about 45 minutes from the sea although the nearest beaches are all stunning. For driving or motorcycling the whole area is magnificent but you have to be comfortable on very tight and twisty hilly and mountainous roads. Our only glitch was that the supermarket in Colunga was closed on the evening we arrived even though the details said it would be open. We think this was an irregular occurrence however. We raided the local garage for a nights worth of snacks! Our experience with Rustical was superb all along and will definitely look there first for our next holiday."

Steven | July | 2015

We like to thank you very much for a wonderful holiday in Asturias. The check-in by Belén was very nice and good. Furthermore the local guide you provided in an earlier mail was very good! We used it a lot (to find the good beaches). The house was beautifully situated (the surroundings quiet), very good and well equipped (perhaps the only thing I missed was wifi, but that kept the holiday rustical ;-)

Vicky | July | 2015

We had a brilliant time at this property! A really beautiful situation and the accommodation just right. We were a little bit worried about finding it and not being able to speak the language but the lady that greeted us did very well with her English and made us feel welcome. I have been recommending Rustical Travel to all my friends as I was very impressed with both the information that you sent us before we left and all the brochures etc. that were at the house - we did several of the recommended outings. I only wish we could have stayed there longer. Thank you.

This cottage really is in a beautiful location. Small but fine for two people, well equipped, with absolutely stunning views and the loudest birdsong we've ever heard. We loved it thanks. We also found the directions and local information supplied by Rustical Travel were very comprehensive and helpful."

Carole | September | 2014

Hello. We had a wonderful holiday thank you. The property was fab. The views amazing and such a lovely room on the first floor - very well equipped. Modern and stylish. We really enjoyed being there. The only suggestions we have are that you provide a small table for the outside so we could eat on the patio; and a corkscrew in the kitchen to open a bottle of wine! We made good use of the information you sent us about the area. That was really useful. The only disappointment was that the local bar in the village was closed for their holidays. We had specifically picked a property within walking distance of a bar as we didn't want to drive at night - so it was disappointing to find it closed We would be very happy to use you again and to recommend your to our friends."

A small folding table and two chairs are now available for sitting outside. The local bar remains closed during the month of September and this is now reflected in the property page (location tab) and in the document we send to clients.

The cottage was wonderful with stunning views that changed all through the day. It was clean and comfortable and stylishly furnished. Our contact was helpful. Your local guides were excellent, better than any guide book we found and we would have welcomed even more suggestions and recommendations - maybe some walks. A few updates: Sadly the local bar closed for the whole of September The supermarket in Colunga is now a bright yellow Minymas The bar/ restaurant in Esperando closes on Mondays Also, there was no tin opener nor corkscrew in the cottage. Minor irritations. We had a great holiday and we would certainly use Rustical Travel again."

The location and views from this property are stunning and if at all possible we will be booking another holiday here next year. We have also been very impressed with the service from Rustical and all the additional information provided. The only comment we have about the property is that the bedroom downstairs is far too small and claustrophobic. Fortunately we brought our own camp bed which we had with us for use later in our holiday so were able to use this upstairs. All in all though we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would go again."

The property was excellent - nicely furnished, well equipped and exactly as described. The views were sensational! We were also very impressed with Rustical Travel. The website was informative and it was very easy to book the holiday. The information provided was also very helpful and we visited several of the places recommended. We are now considering booking another holiday with Rustical Travel."

Mark | June | 2014

Overall I was very happy with both the holiday property and the high level of service provided by rustical travel. All communications were polite, efficient and clear. Rustical travel provided a great service to enhance the holiday experience. The property itself was very charming, clean and in a wonderful location with the best view you could ask for. It made a great base for exploring the Picos and nearby coast. Re the property I would highlight 4 minor things for consideration. It would benefit from a little outside furniture (table and proper chairs) so that meals can be enjoyed overlooking the great views. Finally it would have been great to have had a couple of wine glasses. I will definately use rustical travel again and would also like to stay in the same property\area in the future too"

Beautiful site! Very cozy and comfortable. The views down the valley in the mornings were stunning beyond belief. We had a wonderful time just taking some of the farm roads for long walks out back.It was easy as pie to get to Majada de Espineres for an entertaining and breathtaking day hike. The people of the town of Anayo were pleasant and welcoming. One possible area to explore. Perhaps we're the only ones to ever have this problem, but our cell phone didn't work. This would have caused us considerable problem if it hadn't been for a kind bartender at La Bolera (Patri or Patricia) who spoke a bit of English and was willing to call the key person from the bar phone. Would it be so bad to have the key holders meet the clients at the property, and provide directions all the way there? As it turned out, the house was about 1 minute from La Bolera. It would have saved us a little worry. Otherwise, the stay was magnificent. Well done!"

Bethan | September | 2013

We have just returned from our holiday in Asturias and wouyld like to say how impressed we were by the property we stayed at re its location and settng which was magical,being so peaceful and with such amazing views. The decor and layout were also just to our taste and the view from the living area meant that TV was not needed. If there were any issue with the proprty at all it was the lack of ventilation in the downstairs as there was no way to have an open window at night and we were advised to shut the outside doors. We had a superb time and enjoyed the walking especially the local walk from the property to the nearby hills which were in a Spanish walking guide we found at the house. We also went further afield to the Picos and the coast. We spent all our evenings at the house as unfortunately the village bar owners had decided to go on holiday for 3 weeks and the Japanese restaurant was also fully booked for the weeek. Those bendy roads were just too much of a risk at night to venture any further, but local shops provided all we needed for some magical meals, as we watched the twinkling street lights across the valley. All in all a wonderful holiday in a region we had never visited before and we hope to try another of your potperties in the future. Many thanks"

In response to this comment, the owner has added a new window downstairs for ventilation (photo available on request).

We want to let you know that we spent a wonderful time in Anayo, Asturias (1/8 - 10/8). Our holiday home was well equipped and had all the necessary things a home should have. But above all a splendid and stunning view over the Picos. This panorama and the quietness around Anayo were enough to stay at home and not to travel around. If you have an holiday address with a comparable view elsewhere, please let us know. We have two remarks and one suggestion for visitors in the future (we hope we will be one of them :-)). The remarks: 1. The exit for Colunga (N-632) is not Exit 344 but Exit 337; 2. The super market (Casa Vallin - friendly personel) is not on the right hand side but on the left hand side on the roundabout in the centre of the city. The suggestion: May be it's a good idea to put 'a guestbook' in the house where visitors can exchange useful practical information (places to visit, walks, ...) to future visitors. And a last tip, the Japanse restaurant Fuente de Lloba is so near the holiday property that you can go on foot (2 km - follow Robledo). You 've reached the place before you know it. So, thanks again for the preparation and organisation of our holiday. Kind regards"

Excellent communication from company. Excellent accommodation . We locked ourselves out however because we didn't realise that when you shut the door it locked automatically. This might be worth mentioning. We weren't sure what garden was ours and where we could turn round the car? Otherwise all fabulous and we had a lovely time thank you."

Just to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your little house. Belen was excellent - very professional and pleasant. Deserves commendation. We spent 7 weeks travelling around Spain this year and have done so for the last 8 years and Belen was definitely the best caretaker we have come across yet. Will in all probability stay with you next year - at the larger house in Anayo."

A stunning, romantic retreat ideal for a couple who want to get away from it all and enjoy the seclusion of surrounding Sueve hills. There's a bar/restaurant round the corner which sells essentials like milk etc otherwise it's an 11km drive to the nearest town, Infiesto. Highly recommend this beautiful retreat for couples who love hiking and nature."

The cottage was wonderful and the area was glorious, we will definitely be returning. Thank you very much for your assistance. Could you send our thanks to the caretaker. If possible could you satisfy my curiosity and tell me the history of the houses history, was it an old chapel or connected to the pilgrims in some way?
