Ponga is a small town and municipality in the hills of Asturias, just next door to the Picos de Europa National Park.

With an excellent infrastructure of trails you’ll be able to go walking, horseback riding or mountain biking for an unforgettable adventure. Along the way you’ll be able to stop at picturesque Asturian villages, known for their quaint thatched cottages. And the scenery will be nothing short of stunning, no matter which direction you set off in from a self-catering villa in Ponga.

Holiday cottages in Ponga are found in a hotspot for adventure sports. Among the activities promoted here are rock climbing and quad biking.

La Beciella, Moracey and La Espasa are lovely examples, just outside Caravia.

A mountain right outside the window! Great walks from the village and within a short drive from the house. There are no shops or bars in the village so we ate in bar/restaurants in local villages which were all excellent, inexpensive hearty food. We loved the Picos mountains and our only disappointment was staying for only 4 nights! You need a week or more to really enjoy the area.

Between forest and mountain, and at the same time close to the beautiful beaches. Thank you Olga and Marc for your hospitality and advices, and congrats for the house !
