“Lovely country house, quiet rural location.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Casona de Cefontes is not easy to find, and I would say that you definitely need SatNav, but very well worth the trouble. It is about 3 miles from Gijón, which is much like any other city but it does have an impressive seafront and beach.
The Casona is in a slightly elevated position with lovely views over the countryside to Gijón and the north coast.
Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent with lovely towels and complementary toiletries.
We chose the expensive option for breakfast which was very good but not worth €11. We had fresh orange juice, cereals and yoghurt, croissants, toast and fried ham and eggs.
The house is a modernised farmhouse and the interior is very tastefully done and beautiful. The owners are very welcoming and charming, though speak very little English.
There are a couple of good restaurants about five minutes' drive away, or Gijón is about 10-15 minutes away.
Casona de Cefontes is an ideal place from where to visit the interesting and picturesque north coast of Spain.

Casona de Cefontes is in the hills above Gijon. In doing my research, I had no idea that it was so close to that charming city! While it is signposted appropriately, the area is fairly difficult to navigate, and I'm not sure we would have found it without our GPS. Once there, you will find an incredible property and truly lovely hosts! The Casona sits in its own grounds surrounded by trees, grass and flowers. Everything smells so wonderful, both inside and out. We had one of the deluxe rooms, No. 10, with two sets of French doors opening to the outside, There were two very comfortable arm chairs, as well as a nice table for the computer. The huge flat-screen TV was lovely, but carried only Spanish channels, which was fine for us -- we're not here to watch TV. Breakfast was extremely good with freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit and different sorts of breads, along with the usual toast, cereal and yogurt; excellent coffee. The entire house was spotlessly clean and decorated with an artist's eye for detail. We will definitely return to the Casona de Cefontes!

Room Tip: We opted for a deluxe room (they have two) and it was huge!
