“Fabulous house in beautiful setting”
Reviewed 5 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a glorious week at the Old School House, exploring both the Cantabrian coast (which offers excellent beaches, rocky coves, body boarding), the Picos de Europa, and intriguing towns (Ribadesella, Oviedo, Cangas) with great restaurants. The house is in a fantastic natural setting, above the lovely village of Espinaredo, and is perfect for local impromptu walks, longer hikes, or relaxing in the orchard with a book. The kitchen has everything one needs, the décor is tasteful and the house has been thoughtfully renovated.

“Lovingly renovated house with beautiful natural garden in truly isolated rural location”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The property is a real away from it all treat. The house was beautifully restored and equipped. The children loved the orchard, dipping in the stream and having horses and cows as neighbours. A car is essential to enjoy all the area has to offer although it is possible to walk to the local village with its very welcoming bar serving local food and mojitos! The recommended restaurant in nearby Infiesto was superb with some of the best food I have tasted in Asturias, well worth a stop. We would recommend the beaches of the dinosaur coast - any of the ones along the road between Llastres and Ribadesella are lovely - and canoing down the river Sella - great fun. Asturias is very green and great for animal and nature lovers and for an alternative taste of Spain but you need to be prepared to take your time getting to places and to make an effort with the language. Also if you have time you must visit the Picos de Europa, one of most beautiful places in Europe. Highly recommended.
PS Remember to ask if you want to use the washing machine.

“A wonderful holiday in a beautiful place.”
Reviewed 2 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We booked the Old School House in Asturias so we could enjoy a holiday in a beautiful place away from the traditional Spanish holiday spots. We had an absolutely brilliant week - the weather was great, even though we went in early autumn - the food was excellent and there was so much to do.

We went walking in the Picos de Europa which was the most wonderfully unexpected treat, including ancient beech forests, bleak, rocky peaks and stone cottages nestled miles from any roads. There is also an amazing forest near the house with a mountain river running through it which is dotted with waterfalls and amazing swimming spots.

We saw too much wildlife to list, but highlights included wild boar in the garden of the house, red deer on the slopes above, golden eagles, vultures, king fishers, red squirrels and lizards.

The food in the restaurant recommended by the owners, Mark and Lisa, was as delicious as described, and as dramatic as the landscape it came from - when we were there our steaks were cut from a whole side of cow brought out on to the counter in front of us.

The coastline nearby is dramatic and fantastic for surfing, and the food everywhere was exceptional. As the area is largely off the tourist trail it's also considerably cheaper than many other places we've been - beers in the local bar, for example, are Euro1.50 each, with plates of tapas not much more.

We could easily have stayed another week, and not even scratched the surface of what there was to do. In fact we nearly had to stay another week because we were caught up in the Brittany Ferries strike!

I couldn't recommend the place highly enough, both for the wonderful house and stunning location - and also for the way Mark and Lisa made us feel welcome in their home.

If you've not been too that part of Spain then do it - you won't regret it - it's like a completely different country and not to be missed. For people who like the outdoors in particular, there's just so much to do.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

“A great escape”

A well maintained, clean property in a quiet location, with stunning scenery, about 7km from nearest town. Fully equipped inside, and secluded orchard/garden for relaxing on the garden furniture with a good book and wine!
The owners provide a good information pack and point you in the direction of a really good restaurant at Infiesto. They respond promptly to any booking queries.
There are several local walks from the house and there is a lovely wooded picnic area La Pesanca (with car park) where you can also walk, above Rifabar.
It is an easy drive to visit the Picos de Europa or the north coast.
