Overview

When we visit Asturias, this is the Rustical Travel cottage of choice for ourselves.

For one, it's so peaceful and comfortable. And then there's the location (just perfect), which allows you to pass effortlessly between the picture book mountain interior and the coast with its sandy beaches.

Here you have all the luxuriousness of a country hotel with a feel of a home. The villa is beautifully kept and has been finished by the owners (who are charming) down to the last detail.

Traditional in its use of stone and timber, the house is spick-and-span and softly furnished from top to bottom.

It accommodates 8 people extremely well. The sitting room is properly provided with sofas and armchairs for all, and the dining areas both inside and outdoors seat eight guests, also.

Similarly, the four bedrooms are all ample.

We think quality sleep is an often overlooked element in the holiday experience and here slumber is a pleasure. The latex mattresses and fine bed linen are first-class, and the only sound we heard was the friendly but distant hoot of the baker’s delivery van bringing fresh bread and croissants in the morning.

There’s a special off-peak price for fewer people that makes it interesting for couples and small families, too.

One of the double bedrooms is downstairs, where it shares the ground floor with the main room, an open plan arrangement combining living and dining areas with the kitchen.

The other three bedrooms are on the upper floor – which is all wood under foot – and have access to a rear garden or to the gallery terrace: a typical element in an Asturias cottage and a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the view.

The accommodation’s high standards are continued in the kitchen, which is very well equipped and maintained. You will sit down to dine on quality china with matching cutlery.

And you have a choice of places to take meals, sit and have drinks, read and relax.

There are living and dining areas indoors, of course, but outside, as you can see in the photography, there are furnished areas upstairs on the gallery balcony, downstairs by the garden, and also a large covered area with a barbecue.

The gardens are lush and green, planted with colourful flowering shrubs, and there are swings and a basketball hoop for children. Apple trees, hazelnut, cherry, walnut, chestnut, peach and fig trees complete the picture. The gardens are not fenced off and partly shared with anyone staying in another cottage nearby.

All around, as you can see, is gorgeous Asturian countryside and the upstairs terrace has views of the valley and mountains.

The house is blissfully quiet but not isolated. There are three or four other houses close by, including the home of the owner, a hospitable lady whose personality and desire to provide the best possible comfort are imprinted on the villa.

She makes sure the house is prettily decorated with plants and don’t be surprised if there’s a baked cake or fresh farm eggs awaiting your arrival. The property belongs to her farmstead and you will see hens and cows around and about.

Above all, this villa is for those who wish to come and enjoy walks through countryside and in the exhilarating Picos de Europa, while also having a choice of some of Northern Spain’s best beaches at an easy drive.

You don’t have to get in the car to go hiking, but the superlative walks (with or without children) are worth driving a few minutes to get to.

There's a wood near the house and a hamlet above following the country lane (and the nearest restaurant is a walkable 1 km), but we recommend taking the car 10 minutes to the path up to Alto de la Tornerilla. Here you have an easy 30-minute walk to a summit with views you won’t forget in a hurry: the snow-covered heights of Picos de Europa to the south; and simply turn round to see the sweeping line of the Dinosaur Coast, with the sea sparkling beyond.

Another 5 minutes and you’re in the mountains themselves – or at the Casaño River, an idyllic destination for a day out.

Head north just a quarter of an hour to the sea and you’ll understand why Asturias is such a special place in Spain. Nowhere else will you find fabulous mountains and beaches so intimately close together.

There's a sandy beach before you reach Llanes fishing village (20 mins) and there are lots more to choose from.

Cottage AT21 is just the place for a natural, relaxing, healthy holiday in northern Spain.

Other than that the limited WiFi signal, we found the property hard to fault. High, reliable standards and a good price, too.

There's central heating if you come out of season and a first basket of firewood for the hearth is thrown in free of charge, also.

For practical needs, there’s a good supermarket 2 km away, as well as a fine restaurant with produce from its own beef farms. There’s also a nearer restaurant with a less inviting décor that provides a take-away service of good home-cooked food. You will find restaurants and day trips described in greater detail in the local guide we send you before you travel.

If you are interested in being initiated into the art and science of birdwatching, a short and particularly bird-rich guided route is often available in the Springtime.

Peter | August | 2016

A wonderfully quiet position close to mountains and sea. Lovely verandah and cosy bedrooms all with en suite. The hosts were very helpful. Recommend strongly for any groups/families."

Nick | July | 2016

We had a wonderful week at this property in early July. It is perfectly positioned for very easy access to both the Picos and the many amazing beaches on this stretch of coast. Marie and Jose, who live next door, were very welcoming and helpful even though our Spanish was incredibly basic. The house itself is beautiful and very well equipped. We didn't need to buy any household basics all week (loo rolls, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc) as they were all supplied. Note that wi-fi was better than expected, we seemed to get coverage throughout the house. The garden, whilst lovely, isn't as large as some of the photos make it seem. If you have small children with plenty of energy then this may not be the best property for you. Also it's worth noting that to get to the property's parking area at the rear of the property involves driving up a narrow, uphill path between two buildings. We managed it OK all week but it gave us a few hairy moments in an unfamiliar hire car. The local area was stunning and peaceful and the property was exactly as described by Rustical Travel. The information that they provided was good and helpful and they were able to help us out with a few requests. We're definitely planning to return to the area and would book with RT again."

We had a wonderful holiday in this cottage and the views were indeed spectacular. Marie Paz was very helpful and we managed to communicate despite our lack of Spanish. The fresh bread delivery each morning was an unexpected luxury. The cool, dark interior provided a welcome respite from the outside heat."

Michael | May | 2016

Excellent amenities, stunning location and lovely owners!!! We were welcomed with a home made cake ( which lasted a week, was that big!) fresh eggs from their free range chickens and home made jam, which we cheekily asked for more, it was that good! The main highlight was hanging out a bread bag every night with 1euro in it and finding a fresh stick of bread in the bag the following morning. Beaches were good and easy to get to. Your info pack was very well put together. A very good holiday, thanks."

Dear Rustical Travel, It is all too easy, after returning home from your holidays, to be so occupied with normal life that feedback is forgotten. So I am glad that you prompted me! From my first enquiry, until now, your communication has been EXCELLENT! Your directions to the property, and local information, was THE BEST OF ITS KIND WE HAVE SEEN. And by the way, my wife and I run a holiday cottage business in Cornwall, so we know a good thing when we see one. Congratulations to the Rustical Travel team for delivering such high standards. For independent travellers like ourselves you unhesitatingly deserve our highest praise. Oh yes, and cottage was fantastic too! And the hosts so charming! We had no Spanish, and they no English. So we spoke European."

John | June | 2015

The villa was charming and the scenery surrounding was fantastic. Everything in the property was good quality and comfortable. The owners of the property, although they could speak no English and I no Spanish, managed to communicate, and even told of us a festival to see in Cue, with a little help from another guest!"

Rustical Travel's handling of our booking was exemplary. The property is an easy drive from the port at Santander with the instructions for finding the property very clear. We were most impressed by the quality of Spanish rural roads. The cottage is as described on the website - very well equipped with friendly, helpful owners living nearby; cake on arrival and fresh eggs later in the week. Wifi has obviously been upgraded as we had no reception problems inside the house. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings with tinkling cow bells but with many beaches and cliff top walks a short drive away. A similar short drive inland leads to the Picos mountains which provide easy walking trails giving a close-up view of the peaks."

Jeremy | August | 2014

The house was in a lovely setting and a great base for exploring the area. We enjoyed some days hiking in the mountains and others enjoying the gorgeous beaches of Asturias. The house was a lovely 4 bedroom house with well stocked kitchen. The owners live on site (seperate building) and could not have been nicer. We didn't find English to be widely spoken in Asuturias which made it more of an authentic experience than other regions of Spain. There are a lot of options for things to do that would satisfy almost everyone and the local guide provided by Rustical Travel was probably the best local off the beaten path guide I have ever received from a region and it was exactly what we were looking for. The people in Asturia are very nice and accomodating and I would not hesitate to go back."

We just wanted to say thank you for our fantastic holiday in Galicia and Asturias. The weather was outstanding, the countryside and coast beautiful and the food delicious, but most of all we would like to say thank you for the houses and in particular the warm welcome we got from the caretakers."
