Make holiday rental accommodation or property in Asturias, Spain your home away from home

The principality of Asturias is a municipality on the north coast of Spain, hemmed in by the Cordillera Cantabrica Mountains. Although the principality of Asturias, Spain is only a small region, there is a huge amount to do, from the beaches of the Cantabric coast to the national parks of the mountains, ancient sites of the Santiago Way to the cultural wonders of Oviedo, Asturias’ capital. Asturias is home to some of Spain’s greenest and most unspoilt landscapes, and the locals are outstandingly friendly, resulting in a huge rise in green tourism in Asturias over the last few years.

Things to do on holiday in Asturias, Spain

Asturias is a fantastically peaceful and traditional region of Spain, where clean air, green landscapes and a stunning coastline are the main attractions, not the beach resorts holidays in Spain have become synonymous with. This truly is a wonderful place to take a self catering holiday rental, especially if you are looking for both peace and natural splendour. Asturias accommodation offers both in spades.

There are over 200 glorious beaches available from self catering Asturias accommodation, stretched along the 345km coastline that Asturias boasts. The beaches of the Costa Verde, or Green Coast, are not only perfect for spending lazy days in the sun, but also for surfing and fishing. There are always plenty of surfers renting self catering Asturias property, waiting for ‘the wave’, vying with the tiny, colourful fishing boats for their spot on the back break. Between Ribadesella and Gijon are some of the most important dinosaur fossils in the world too.

Green tourism in Asturias thrives due to the stunning countryside. The most amazing thing about the Asturias countryside is how compact it is. You can reach the peaks of the mountains after just 30km from leaving the beach, having passed through miles of green, undulating farmland in between! The mountains are awash with stunning natural parks where you can walk, cycle and canoe, never far from the region’s wildlife. The nature reserves of Picos de Europa, Covadonga and Somiedo are well worth visiting, especially for nature lovers.

Having been largely left alone by the interfering hands of tourism, the Principality of Asturias still has a wonderfully strong culture. The local gastronomy is absolutely mouth watering, focusing on both seafood and hearty mountain influenced dishes like fabada. Whatever you decide to eat, make sure you wash it all down with a glass of local cider, whether you are eating out or at home in your private, self catering Asturias property. Traditional farming methods are still practiced in the area, and the way of life has hardly changed for centuries.

UNESCO have declared the three cities of Oviedo (the principality of Asturias’ capital), Gijon and Aviles and Patrimony of Humanity due to the enormous number of historical monuments within their boundaries. The pre-Roman monuments of Oviedo are simply stunning, and worth exploring from any Asturias accommodation.

Weather in Asturias, Spain

The climate of the Principality of Asturias is hugely unpredictable due to the amazing landscape and location on the Atlantic seaboard. Rain can strike at any time of year, so a jacket should be packed whatever time of year you decide to visit self catering Asturias accommodation.

The view from the balcony towards the mountains is fantastic. Conveniently located within walking distance of everything. Clean apartment. Rather well-equipped kitchen. The parking place offered by the host is very good as it is very difficult to find parking space in town. Negative: If you want to do some cooking, you will have to buy basic essentials like salt, pepper, sugar, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc. No kettle. The wifi in the apartment never worked properly during our week's stay. The walls could do with some pictures to complete the interior of this "luxury" apartment. Because of its central location it was noisy until the early hours, so earplugs are recommended. However the owner has plans to sound-isolate the windows.

The garden was so peaceful and tranquil it was a delight. Nieve was a very welcoming host and explained everything so carefully. Despite the rain, we had a great time. Casa La Marina is perfectly situated to visit the beaches, the mountains, the pretty fishing villages as well as large towns such as Oviedo.
