Overview

Quite simply one of the best houses we have inspected in Asturias. One of those very complete places where the owner is always thinking of ways to make the house more comfortable or pleasant for people to stay. We find this attitude immensely reassuring because we know that our clients will be the people who benefit.

The setting has just what we look for in an Asturias holiday villa: a natural and utterly genuine village and the scenic mountain views you associate with the cider country.

The village restaurant – an easy stroll away – is authentic, too, with heart-warming home cooking.

The holiday home originally belonged to the owner’s grandparents and her fondness for it, as she showed us around, was apparent. The attention to detail is excellent and an understanding of what constitutes quality and comfort shines through.

The house accommodates 5 people in perfect comfort. We also imagined it being a popular choice for a couple, and if you only need the Master double bedroom, you’ll see that the owner agreed to nicer prices in off-peak months.

As you will also see, the style is luxuriously rustic and furnishings well chosen in this practical and high quality villa.

Everywhere feels very homely and decorative detail has been taken given as much attention as the practical arrangements. In the kitchen, for instance, the owner decided to change the bare stone, so attractive elsewhere, for a wallpapered depiction of a mountain village, in order to make the snack area a cozier spot.

Little things like this can make all the difference in the atmosphere of a holiday home.

The three bedrooms, an upstairs lounge (which can double as a dressing room), and the main bathroom, are on the first floor. The other bathroom is downstairs, but the wood staircase is banistered and easy to use. Wood floors and timber ceilings, nicely chosen lamps and pictures make the bedrooms attractive and welcoming. They each have character.

Beds are 1.35 m or 1.05 m wide, although only 1.80 m long, so tall people might find them a little short. Mattresses are cushioned with viscoelastic, particularly comfy, and bedlinen is of Egyptian cotton.

The shared upstairs lounge-cum-dressing room has additional cupboard space, a chaise longue and mirror, and opens to the typical covered gallery balcony that is almost de rigueur in traditional Asturias cottages.

It’s the very best vantage point for the beautiful view of garden, mountains, hill and dale. The early morning view from here is an inspiring way to start the day.

The outside world is just beautiful and the main reason people choose the location. You have walks from the doorstep and it’s a perfect place for kids.

Children will be intrigued by the old wood store (accessible inside from the living room), which is now more of a rough-and-ready museum featuring old farm implements. An old horse-drawn cart sits on the stone-paved patio under the porch outside.

This is a good, safe space for children to play, as is the large garden directly below, where they will find soft, green grass and a swing. The private garden with its mature trees is looked after, too, looking and feeling lived in, the kind place that children will have fond memories of later on, when they’re grown up.

The garden slopes down to the dale to provide a fabulous vista from a well-built, covered dining area by the cottage. There isn’t a barbecue, but you can bring meals out here and use the sturdy wooden furniture.

Villas positioned on the edge of villages, as AT27 is, are often promising. Here rural seclusion and tranquillity combine with being walking distance to a long-established village bar-restaurant (children welcome), which serves inexpensive set lunches menus and totally authentic, delicious dishes with good quality ingredients. Don´t miss the cachopo mountain stew. It’s humble food, served professionally, where locals come to eat.

La Piloneta is as pretty and real an Asturian village as you could wish to find. Yes – it’s real rural Spain. Not a lot happens here: the historical character seems to have slowed time to a stop.

But you’re not cut off from shops and services, either. Just 2 km down the road is Nava, capital of the Cider Country. Nava town has a pleasant main square with a good place to eat out, supermarkets, some decent sidrerías (cider bars) and the area’s cider museum.

It’s an unpretentious small town, but no more than that. When you’re ready to leave the villa (we suspect you’ll want to spend most of the time there), then you’re better off heading for unspoilt little villages like Espinaredo, or areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the enthralling Redes and Ponga Natural Park, just one valley away, or even the Picos de Europa some 45 minutes’ drive.

Closer to home, it’s nice to just walk around where the cottage is. One proper walk takes you up the Pico de la Mue and beyond.

Your seaside destination is Villaviciosa and its beaches, half an hour from the cottage. Rodiles beach, just 35 minutes away, is a real beauty. It has a lifeguard all summer and is also ideal for surfing.

Around Villaviciosa you’ll see cider breweries. Do try Asturias cider and cheese, the cider decanted in its special ritual, it’s such an enjoyable way to get a true feel for local culture.

If you want to get off the beaten track, we have a place that will surely amaze you.  Drive straight up the mountain road opposite the villa, to Les Praeres. The views (and we’ve seen a few at Rustical) are superb. On weekends a rustic bar restaurant here is open and cooking simple good food.

From Les Praeres, if you want even more eye-opening views, walk up to Peña Mayor. On a clear day, the scene of sea and mountains is simply unforgettable.

YOUR REVIEWS

Julie | September | 2016

Really lovely property in the most delightful setting. The views are just wonderful and the gentle clanging of the cows bells just made it a superb place to relax. The owners have put effort in to making it very comfortable with a feeling of home from home. Just the two of us staying there so we were able to spread out! There are a lot of ornaments scattered around so might not be good if you have very young children. Enclosed south facing garden area with swings. Would have been good to have had some more relaxing outside furniture i.e. loungers, however it really was special, we will probably go back. We also had the most fabulous walks without having to drive, especially climbing the hill tight in front of the house (two hour climb to top). Very nice and not at all overlooked. Nice traditional bar in the village and owners have left Tupperware containers in kitchen so you can have a take away from the bar/restaurant."

Christopher | July | 2016

We had a wonderful time staying at AT27 near Nava. It was an amazing house, full of history and very comfortable. It really did feel luxurious. The views from the garden were superb and the constant sound of the cow bells in the valley was very relaxing. It was a good base to explore the surrounding area and to visit Oviedo, Gijon, the coast and the mountains. Your information pack was excellent and meant that we had no problems finding the meeting point with the owner (although she did not speak any English and I cannot speak Spanish but it all worked out in the end!). The only negative point on the property was that there could have been a few more cooking utensils e.g colander, more saucepans, more mugs/glasses etc. but this is a very minor point. Overall, we all had a great time and would certainly recommend Rustical Travel and Asturias to friends and family. Thanks again. Chris Walker"

Rustical Update

End of Summer 2016 we pass full list of kitchen utensils to property manager and she confirms kitchen has all neccesary items.

Beautiful rustic cottage with fantastic mountain views in a lovely small old peaceful village. Great spot for touring the area. Walks in the area. Highly recommended. Can't wait to return."

Elizabeth | September | 2015

What a delightful old stone property, full of Rustic charm! The property had been the current owners parents home, and had all the little touches and luxuries that made it feel like a home rather than a holiday villa, and it was a wonderful place to stay. It also boasts the fact that the Spanish version of Doc Martin was filmed here! It is in a great location in a small village, but within easy reach of the town and local supermarkets. The garden has a sheltered table which is a lovely spot to have meals whilst looking over the hills and listening to the sound of cow bells. The bar in the village serves good food with a very friendly service, and despite the language barrier, still managed to help us when it came to ordering food, and show us the etiquette of cider drinking. It is a great area for exploring the coast and mountains, including the Picos de Europa and is ideal for walkers. All in all I would highly recommend it."

Marion | September | 2015

Very happy with your service. Accurate description of house and location. Helpful information provided, including what to say, when phoning owner to inform her of arrival at the meeting place. Appreciated help in forwarding messages to Rosaura, as our Spanish is very limited. Only problem was the lack of wifi, which made it difficult to find information about opening times of restaurants, museums etc. We used the wifi at the tourist information centre in Nava, but they were not open every day and times did not fit well with days out. Planning a trip in the spring to Galicia. We'll be in touch. Regards, Marion"

Barbara | August | 2015

Thank you Javier, this propert ticked every box for us. Our first and last impression.... Fabulous! The whole place has been very tastefully decorated and felt like a home from home. It's cosy and comfortable. The bonus of a wood burner made early October evenings an absolute treat. The dark shutters made it almost impossible to wake up. It was bliss. if I have any small criticism, there was only one blunt kitchen knife, and a couple of smaller pans and a colander would be a huge help. I love to cook though not on holiday, however it was such a pleasure to come back to in the evenings, why leave? The owners were lovely, we struggled to understand each other but their daughter's English was very helpful. We must work harder on our Spanish! Everything was as you described, the surrounding countryside was beautiful with some stunning walks. Great tourist information in Nava. Thank you for your advise it was very much appreciated. Our second experience with Rustical was just as good as the first, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others. Our best wedding anniversary ever."
