Overview

Sometimes it really is the location that matters, even if the accommodation must have everything you want, too.

We have a number of good, well-kept holiday homes – here it’s a two-bedroomed beauty – but when you realize that this one is ideally situated for enjoying the very best of Asturias and the Picos de Europa, it makes all the difference in the world.

The cottage is just what a lot of couples or small families look for. It’s a very pretty, stone-built affair, set on a hilltop in private gardens, from where you have stupendous views of the Picos de Europa mountains. At less than ten minutes walk is Arriondas, right at the heart of walking holiday country.

From here you are also perfectly placed for exploring the gloriously undiscovered reaches of the Picos: Ponga, which we shall come to presently.

The rustically modern house accommodates four people in attractive comfort. Among features that we particularly liked were the smart kitchen, good mattresses and wood floors in the bedrooms, and properly cushioned terrace furnishings outside.

The spaces aren’t minimal, either. As you come in, an open-plan design spreads out from a high-ceilinged reception area; upstairs a gallery landing from decent-sized bedrooms overlooks the spacious main room.

It’s all neatly fitted out, well-appointed and inviting. There are two upstairs bedrooms, a bathroom on both floors, and 80 m² of covered terrace, including a barbecue.

Outside, children have loads of space to run around and play on the grass. There are also a couple of swings. Adults and teenagers have the use of bicycles: these are provided free of charge and you are simply asked to take good care of them for the following guests.

You’re very private here, high among the green hills, not overlooked at all. The only other building you can see in one of the photos belongs to the same owners and is an unoccupied outhouse. You have to drive up a steepish lane to get there, but a normal car's all you need.

The views aren’t just wonderful, they’re a hint of what you will experience every day and whichever direction you choose. Keen walkers are in their natural element here.

The central location puts you close to thick forest and sparkling rivers, forgotten villages and the pretty beaches of the Asturias coastline.

Walk the 800 metres to Arriondas and you find yourself in a small, well-provided for town, laid out along the banks of the otherwise tree-lined Sella and Piloña Rivers, against a backdrop of crumpled mountains. Try a snack with local Cabrales cheese and light, sharp cider decanted by your barman. Asturias is famed in Spain for its generous, tasty cuisine. You don’t have to go to either of the Michelin-starred restaurants in Arriondas to experience plentiful and marvellous dishes.

Arriondas has good facilities (there’s even a disco) but above all it is best known as the setting-out point for descending the Sella river in kayak, canoe or raft. This has become a popular activity and you’ll have no problem hiring a boat if you want to try it. In August, people come from far and wide to take part in the festive International Canoe Race, accompanied by music and street events.

You can also organize canyoning and similar outdoor pursuits here, and for anything you can’t find, a ten-minute drive brings you to Cangas de Onis, nerve centre for the Picos de Europa. Cangas Sunday market is a good opportunity to pick up fresh produce and to select from variety of intriguing (and often pungent) cheeses.

Before going into the rich depths of the mountains here, let’s not forget the coast. The cottage is a mere 20 minutes from the wild, natural setting of La Vega beach at Ribadesella. The mile-long strand, protected from development as a declared Natural Monument, is good for swimming. There’s a very fine fish restaurant at La Vega and children’s surfing boards can often be hired. In the eastern reaches of the beach there are fossilized dinosaur footprints.

Follow the coast road to discover the very best beaches in Asturias and the lovely small seaside town of Lastres and its nearby Jurassic Museum, a sure-fire hit with children, who can then hunt for more dinosaur prints on the beach below.

The cottage’s immediate draw, for most people, is the Picos mountains. From the property, as long as there’s no mistiness, of course, you see a range of snow-topped peaks, including Peña Santa. In less than half an hour you’re right amongst them and rising to the high lakes of Covadonga. Add the Cares Defile and the funicular to Bulnes for classic days out.

It’s spectacular, and yet curiously enough, it can be something of a challenge for hiking, since the terrain tends towards the abrupt. We have even better recommendations for walking and this is where cottage AT23 comes into its own.

Arriondas is the nearby town for the almost otherworldly Sierra del Sueve, where pathways meander the hills and you may come across the unique Asturcon horse. But there’s much more…

Twenty minutes, driving south, brings you to Ponga and, in our opinion, some of the most extraordinary landscapes anywhere in Spain. Make no mistake, this is way off the beaten track!

Drive along the almost daunting Beyos defile and you will find the wild cousin to the Picos that few people know exists and fewer ever enter. Unpopulated gorges, sheer rock faces, springy-grassed hillsides to ramble, wild forest, and view after view of endless peaks that are ultimately lost to sight in inaccessible territory of the province of León.

This is Ponga and it’s very special. Keep going, because it just gets more amazing. Around Oseja de Sajambre one comes across hamlets in another, forgotten time and people living entirely off the land. The village bar, if there is one, might not have a fridge, keeping wine cool instead in a stone recess beneath the floor.

After a trip out here, you can soon return to 'civilization' and shopping at the large convenience store in Arriondas, but you may wonder whether you dreamed it all.

Rest at home, looking out at the mountain massif over a barbecue in summer, or warm and toasty inside in winter by the open fire more than adequately supported by central heating.

Enjoy natural Asturias!

YOUR REVIEWS

Daphne | May | 2017

We were very happy with the accommodation and the owner was very friendly and helpful. She left lots of food for us, more than we expected which was good because it was a public holiday on Mon, 29th May although this wasn't mentioned on any website or in any guide books. Although Elise didn't speak much English she left her daughter's phone number as she did. We had a little difficulty finding the cabana in the dark and stopped at the first house up the lane which happily was the owner's. On our last morning the water in the taps turned red so I hope that was sorted before the new people arrived! We enjoyed lots of lovely trips to the surrounding area, mainly the Picos and the coast."

Rustical Update

The red water from the taps was due to a drought in the area, but was solved that same day.

As a family of four, we were seeking a getaway in a quieter area of Spain and this cottage in the Asturias was just the ticket - well equipped, with stunning views and access down a steep hill in to the town of Arriondas. The town itself had all the amenities we needed from a bakery to supermarkets and some good local bars and restaurants. We made the most of our location to discover the Picos, the Ponga area and the charming villages on the coast. Out of the main season and the canoeing festival, this is not a touristy area, which was an added bonus. We found the locals to be friendly, in spite of our faltering Spanish and the owners of the house were incredibly helpful and welcoming."

Carlos | April | 2017

Really beautiful cottage, very cozy, amazing views. The owners were very nice and helpful. It is great for children (and adults) as you can visit their farm. Arriondas is located more or less in the middle of all the nice places to visit in Asturias (and there are many). I will come back for sure."

Every aspect of dealing with our September 2016 Rustical travel booking went smoothly and we got first class class professional service throughout. . The web site was informative and well laid out Photographs of property were comprehensive and proved to be accurate, as did property description Information was first class and wide ranging with packing, shopping, sight seeing, eating and beach suggestions. The payment arrangements were straightforward and reminders timely. Confirmations were prompt and reassuring Most of all the property was immaculately prepared, totally clean and ready for our stay. You got everything right and we will use your services again and happily recommend to others. You made things easy for us Thank you"

It was a fabulous cabana in lovely peaceful surroundings, just cows for company with a backdrop of mountains. The garden had plenty of shady places to relax and eat, whilst inside it was cool, comfortable and extremely well equipped. Easy access to beaches and mountains, good food and wine and very helpful hosts."

I wanted to write to say what a brilliant time we had in Asturias! the cottage we stayed in was fantastic, I cannot fault it - a really sympathetic and thoughtful renovation and everything was of such good quality. The area is stunning. Fabulous restaurants. We have returned inspired and recharged! And will most definately be returning. Thanks for all of your help and such comprehensive notes, directions and suggestions. All good wishes.

Judy | May | 2016

Almost 3 months has passed since our week in Asturias, and we have such fond memories! There were 4 of us, 2 couples, and we loved this place!! The property, both inside and out, was nicer than we even expected. We used the bbq, and the kitchen was well equipped (even the juicer was used). A couple of nights we used the fireplace, and the living room is very cozy. It was nice to walk down to Arriondas for a morning coffee with the locals, and the property's location was perfect for exploring the area. We hiked in the Picos, visited the coast, and Oviedo. Arriondas was a nice town, it did not feel 'touristy' although that could be because we were there in May. On that note, though, at night there were little, if no, dining options. This was usually not an issue, as the local grocery store has an excellent fish counter, and we would eat big, late lunches on our daily excursions. We would definitely return to this property. We only wish we had more time when we were there, to see more of the local sights, and sit on the terrace and enjoy the view, the quiet, and the cow bells."

Sarah | August | 2015

A wonderful holiday house - secluded and quiet, yet near to facilities with good road links meaning we were able to enjoy both the coast and the mountains as they were in easy reach. The house is beautifully presented and well cared for and we were given a very warm welcome by Elisa and her family who couldn't do enough to help us. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor space, which enabled us to have many barbecues, and spend most of our time out of doors, even if it rained! Our daughters (aged 9 and 6) enjoyed watching the lizards in the garden and the cows in the next door field. We all loved the fact you could see the mountains in the distance. A really fantastic holiday! We also were very pleased with Rustical Travel and the excellent service you gave us - always fast to respond to enquiries, very helpful and excellent information given to us before we went on holiday. We would recommend you to friends, and definitely consider booking with you again in the future if we return to Spain. Many thanks to your team."

Chris | June | 2015

We just wanted to say what a wonderful and very special holiday we had. The property is superb, total peace and beautiful surroundings and outstanding views. The owners were lovely people, never interfering but always helpful when needed. Arriondas was in our opinion by far the best small town in the area untouched by foreign tourism yet still with all the amenities anyone would need and without exception all the local people were friendly and welcoming. The surrounding area is again unspoiled by tourism and incredibly beautiful. We went to a lot of the mountain areas, the glacial lakes included - wow! We were incredibly lucky with the weather and no daytime rain, temperatures in the high twenties throughout. Your directions were superb, your description of the property very accurate and as for the walk to town and back, yes it was steep but easily walkable with breaks if needed, we walked into town most days. The road to the property has a ridge in the centre at one point and yes if you are not careful you could scrape the bottom of the car but like potholes in the UK - try to miss and you will succeed best if you travel slowly. Your advice about shopping and local food was spot on, we tried all your recommendations and more. This truly was a place where a bottle of wine is cheaper than a bottle of water. Thank you so much for everything."

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday! We loved the property. It was very roomy and was equipped to a high standard. It had everything we needed apart from a tea pot! The bathrooms were a good size with very effective showers. The setting was very peaceful, with lovely views. Elisa and her daughter were really helpful with the couple of minor problems we had. The lane leading to the cottage was very steep and winding, which we might have liked some warning of, but it wasn't a major problem. The cottage was well situated for all amenities, such as food shopping and restaurants, and it was easy to drive to the mountains and the coast. We would definitely like to have another holiday in Asturias! Thank you!"

The property was all we expected and more. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, able to assist withn some queries we had about local facilities. The cabana was very pretty, with plenty of information on local walks etc. It has an amazing view over the countryside and mountains, a perfect place to eat any meal and enjoy the sounds of the birds Both sea and mountains were with easy reach We were totally impressed with this first visit to Asturias and the property was a big part of that enjoyment"

Roger | July | 2014

We were delighted with the property, it was spacious, comfortable and tastefully furnished. We received a very warm welcome from Elisa (junior) who speaks excellent English and were provided with all the information we needed regarding the property and the local area. The property is in a quiet and private spot whilst being conveniently close to Arriondas and provided an excellent base for exploring the Picos and Ponga. The only drawback to the property is the state of the access road which is very steep, twisty and uneven - knowing about this beforehand would not have stopped us booking the property but might have prevented us grounding the car on arrival! We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there and would certainly consider returning and/or booking another holiday with Rustical Travel. Thank you."

The house was very pretty and tastefully furnished with comfortable beds etc..and we loved the area. We had a couple of very nice meals in Ariondas and the surrounding beaches were very nice. The only negative I would say was that the kitchen was very underequipped for any decent cooking - simple things like oven trays, potato peelers, decent bread knife, bread board etc... Also the oven instructions seemed very complicated and strange. Many thanks"

All aspects of the cottage were very positive. The location, facilities and cleanliness were excellent. The owners (and dog) were very friendly and helpful. The Picos and beaches in the area were stunningly beautiful, with the hiking particularly spectacular. We would be very happy to book with Rustical Travel again in the future and would recommend you to friends/family."

Sometimes you are apprehensive about whether the photograph of a property will meet up with the expectations in reality. The cottage actually exceeded our hopes. In a picturesque setting above the small town of Arriondas, two bottles of wine supplied by our hosts on our arrival, spotlessly clean and completely private. The cottage has everything you would possibly require for a quiet retreat, it has a lovely outdoor setting to enjoy the views in the evening and if you want to cycle, it even has bikes available. A final word to our host Elisa, we only saw her on our arrival and on the night before our departure when she brought us a large box of chocolates, a lovely touch. We enjoyed the local area visiting Ribadesella, Cangas De Onis, Covadonga, Oviedo, Gijon, Cudillero and walking a section of the Senda del Oso."

Fantastic property in a beautiful location. We cannot fault the property which was well equipped and beautifully constructed. The owners and their daughter were on hand for any queries and were kind and patient with us and our limited Spanish. A nice touch was a small gift left by the owner on both of the weeks we stayed (local cheeses, biscuits and candles). There is so much to do in the area we are returning again in 2014. Unfortunately this property was already booked up so we could not return which would have been our first choice. We can not rate this property highly enough, it is absolutely fantastic. By the way you also get regular visits from the owners dog, who is called Flora which our 6 year old son loved."

We had an excellent holiday in property AT23. The cottage itself was extremely well equiped and comfortable. We were particularly pleased to have a comfortable and covered area to sit out in and another area for eating; sheltered from the sun and the rain. The owner(s) and her daughter could not have been more charming and helpful. We very much liked the location of the cottage, being just on the edge of Arriondas and walking distance to its restaurants and shops and with good road and rail links. The long views to the mountains were fantastic. The very loud, late night music from Arriondas, which, went on over several nights, (and all night on one occasion), was not something we had anticipated but could not really be said to be a fault of the property! We would have no hesitation in rebooking the property. With respect to the services of Rustical Travel, we have no complaints whatsoever. The property was easy to book and we found all the additional information provided about the locality and facilties very informative and helpful. Again we would have no hesitation in rebooking through your company or in recommending you to friends and family."

Finding out about planned village fiestas that might disturb (or attract) holidaymakers is one of our initiatives for 2015, so that we can forewarn interested enquirers before they book.

This is a very special property and exceeded our expectations. It is well equipped and has very comfy beds. The owners were very hospitable and gave us a lovely welcome. We would certainly return. It is well situated, in a good location to access both beautiful beaches and the mountains. It is in a lovely, secluded position up in the hills, but on the occasions when the rock music festivals are on in the town, the noise can travel many miles and go on for most of the night - it may be advisable to let people know when the festivals are on. Thank you very much indeed."
