For those seeking a relaxing holiday in a truly Spanish atmosphere away from the typical, densely-populated tourist areas of Spain's much-publicised costas, this charming property in Asturias is a must.
Set in Lledia, in the lush green countryside of northern Spain, against the imposing backdrop of the Picos de Europa mountain range, it offers simple, unpretentious yet comfortable accommodation for seven. A mere 2 km. from the attractive unspoilt beaches, sandy coves and rocky inlets of the Bay of Biscay, it stands on the outskirts of the picturesque hamlet of Lledias. A charming two-storey building, comfortably furnished throughout to ensure a pleasurable stay. The ground floor, surrounded on three sides by large picture windows allowing plenty of sunlight to flood into the house, comprises an entrance hall, a single bedroom with en suite bathroom and a large L-shaped area encompassing the fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and living room. The upstairs accommodation includes one double and two twin bedrooms, with a bathroom and shower. The house backs on to a large garden with an attractively-landscaped swimming pool, an outdoor dining area with table and chairs, and ample sun loungers. The garden is profusely planted with trees and flower-beds to provide a natural yet well-tended environment offering plenty of quiet corners in which to relax in the open air.
Salmon and trout fishing, horse-riding, trekking and climbing are just some of the many outdoor activities available in the area, while the nearby towns of Posada de Llanes, Rivadesella and Llanes, a few minutes' drive away, offer a wide variety of restaurants, bars and shops. For those interested in history and ancient buildings, the region of Asturias abounds in churches and other architectural and historical monuments. For two families holidaying together an ideal option would be rent this house together with the neighbouring property La Casona.
