Make a holiday apartment in Colunga your home away from home

Colunga apartments are set in a beautiful part of Asturias, where tall, verdant mountains meet the Atlantic Ocean. It's a superb location if you'd like to go for walks and bike rides, or visit one of the natural sandy beaches close by in the summer. Holiday homes in Colunga are charming and rustic in style, with traditional furniture and fittings, and large gardens affording all the breathing space you could need. The coastline next to apartments in Colunga is significant as much for its prehistory as its breathtaking beauty - dinosaur fossils have been discovered in the area, and there's a high-profile museum devoted to Colunga's prehistory.

Things to do

-Beaches. There are five gorgeous beaches in this municipality alone, and many more to be found in either direction along the coast. They are natural here, with green hills and cattle herds in the background. Playa de la Griega in Colunga is 650 metres long and boasts services like showers, restaurants and lifeguard patrol. It's also recommended for its prehistory, as you can follow a path from the east of the beach to cliffs with fossilised dinosaur footprints.

-Attractions. Set on the Dinosaur Coast, which stretches from Gijon in the west to Ribadeslla in the east, Colunga is a real hotbed for prehistoric remains. And for this reason you can find the Asturian Jurrasuic Museum here, the most visited museum in the whole of Asturias. It covers the changes that occurred throughout the Mesozoic era, with particular attention paid to the dinosaurs.

-Gastronomy. Asturias, and this part of the region in particular, is well know for its cider, with large sweeps of the local landscape dominated by apple orchards. If you order "Sidra" at a bar or restaurant it will be poured from a great height into the glass to allow it to breathe. Asturian cheeses also have a strong reputation - and are strong in flavour too. Originating in the mountainous areas a little way south, Cabrales is a blue cheese aged for five months.

-Outdoor recreation. This is an excellent spot for walks, with the ancient Camino de Santiago passing close by the town. The local landscape is one of coastal cliffs and tall green hills. A particularly scenic route is the Ruta Mirador del Fitu Picu Pienzu, which is a four-hour trail, taking you to a spectacular lookout with views of the Picos de Europa in the distance, and a foreground of rugged green hills, home to sheep herds and wild horses.

-Excursions. Half an hour west of Colunga is the city of Gijon, the largest in Asturias. It's well worth coming to see the Roman heritage here, conserved at locations like the Campa de Torres Archaeological site, a fortified settlement, and Campo Valdes, which has a remarkable bathing complex. A little further, to the southwest, is Oviedo, which has a beautiful old town, with palaces, squares, fountains, churches and the splendid gothic Cathedral of San Salvador.

Weather in Colunga

Spain's northern coast gets a maritime climate, with rain distributed evenly throughout the year. Whenever you arrive at your holiday rental in Colunga, the chances are that mild conditions will be on the cards. Summers are moderate, with temperatures that reach the mid-20s and a little less rainfall than in the other damper seasons. Winters meanwhile are never extreme here. They're a little wetter than the other seasons, while temperatures still normally make it up to double figures during the daytime and stay above freezing at night.

Travel to Colunga

The closest international airport to Colunga holiday homes is Asturias (OVD). There are a few year-round links from Britain to this destination, with budget carriers. The airport also handles a lot of domestic connections to cities like Seville, Madrid and Barcelona. Colunga is around 45 minutes from the airport by road - you can simply take the A-8 and keep on it until you reach this municipality. On this part of the Asturian coast it's a good idea to have use of a car, as there aren't many public transport options.

There is a large open area for free parking in front of the apartment building. The apartment is a large central room with sections for kitchen, dining and living and 2 good size double rooms and a smaller room with 2 bunks off the large room. The full bathroom and half bathroom are also off the central room. There was plenty of equipment, including tablets for the dishwasher. There was plenty of storage space in each of the bedrooms and shelves in the bathrooms and plenty of hot water. The beach is about 200 m away and it takes about 10 minutes to walk across the bridge into town. The is a Dia% supermarket about 100 down the street. It took us about 15 minutes to walk to the Tito Bustilllo caves. It was also very quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable.

We were met by the owners Jose and Teresa who are very friendly people. They took time to show us around the apartment and went out of their way to give us information on things to see in the local area. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and bright with lovely large windows in all the rooms. It was very clean. The kitchen is a good size and had everything we needed to cook our meals. It's located in the centre of the town. There is a great little market two minutes from the apartment where you can stock up on fresh foods. Parking was on the road, although we always managed to find a space. The main bedroom has triple glazing to reduce noise from outside which was effective most of the time. There is plenty to see and do in and around the local area. Fantastic beaches a short drive away. We loved the culture and the friendly people in this region of Spain. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing month here. We loved the peace and quiet and our little dog loved the garden. We live in Southern Spain and grass is a novelty! If your requirements include being active then there is plenty in the area to suit you. Candela and Arturo were very helpful and friendly and supplied us with clean towels and bed linen regularly. We would not hesitate to recommend this house. In fact it was so good we have already booked for the whole of next August.
