Seaview, large terrace with barbecue.

Gijón is frequently cited as one of the most livable cities in Spain. It is big enough for plenty of social, leisure and entertainment venues without the traffic headaches of larger metro areas. Plenty of recreational opportunities throughout the year.

Attic, large terrace with barbecue, table etc. Living room, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom in one of the best areas of the city. Beach in front, another beach 5 minutes walking distance, supermarkets, bars, museums, restaurants, all walking distance.

Our flat consists of one bedroom with a double bed, one room with 2 single beds a large sitting room with a TV, free WIFI access, a fully equipped kitchen and all amenities you need ( electric stone with oven, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, microwave), a bathroom and a big terrace - a great place to enjoy your breakfast in the open air or spend there quiet summer evenings. Parking is available in the courtyard. Within walking distance you have all the main sights of Gijón.

Asturias is honest, authentic, full of life, respectful of the past and present, attentive, courageous, welcoming, modern and cosmopolitan.

By land, sea or air. It doesn't matter how you get there. The lofty sight of the steep Cantabrian Mountains, with their rolling green valleys which meet the coastline in an abrupt outline which falls off into the deep blue Cantabrian Sea, captivates you before you even step foot in Asturias. This is just the start of a unique experience for which you are going to need all five senses. Without them you will not be able to taste its gastronomy, be stunned by its architecture, breathe its nature, listen to its urban heartbeat or enjoy its hospitality.

The Picos de Europa's reserve was Spain's first National Park, protected since 1918. Rising up in the centre of this park is the Picu Urriellu, a real magnet for rock climbers, which then opens onto the Lakes of Covadonga. Fuentes del Narcea, Degaña and Ibias is a Nature Park with totemic fauna including the brown bear and capercaillie. Within this park you will also find the Muniellos Forest Nature Reserve and El Cueto de Arbás Partial Nature Reserve.

The brown bear's habitat extends up to Somiedo which, as well as being a Biosphere Reserve, became the first Nature Park in Asturias (1988). Its lake, El Valle, is the biggest in the region and its brañas (high-mountain pasture areas) are dotted with teitos (thatched roof cottages). Las Ubiñas - La Mesa Nature Park contains the second largest mountain range in the region, the Peña Ubiña Massif and is full of natural monuments, such as the Huerta Cave, home to a large bat hibernation colony, or the Puertos de Marabio, with its peculiar karst complex. Redes is a refuge for all species native to northern regions, from the brown bear to the capercaillie or the wolf. Its complex terrain, also recognised as a Nature Park, is combined with spectacular mountains, valleys and limestone gorges that can be discovered on the River Alba Trail or in Los Arrudos.
