Surfing Information: The apartment is close to excellent surfing beaches. Spring and Autumn are best due to consistent swell and good weather. Water temperatures are pleasant although a wetsuit is recommended.

The nearest beach is San Antolin, 5 minutes away. The beach has excellent waves, which break next to the picturesque natural archway. It has waves on all tides but is better from mid to high tide. There is parking on the beach and on the road above. Playa Torimbia is another good beach, 7 mins away, although a long walk is needed to get down.

Ribadasella is a popular surfing beach 20 mins away with consistent waves that are best on a high tide. It is safe, sandy and suitable for beginners.

The best surfing break in the area is Rodiles, about 30 minutes drive, a large sandy beach with numerous waves but the jewel in the crown is the world class lefthander which breaks in front of the river mouth, this wave is more suited to experienced surfers due to the nature of the rip currents from the estuary.

Our stay at posada de llanes

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment. Ideal location close to supermarket, and other shops. Views from private garden of surrounding countryside, Very easy access to coast or mountains. Beautiful beaches within 5 minutes drive of the apartment. We stayed with our grown up children - 7 of us for part of our stay (August 08) and we were easily accommodated. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others. If you haven't been to Asturias before give it a try.

This is a well maintained, well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable holiday in Posada. The apartment is close to several beautiful beaches and the garden has a lovely view of the mountains. The Pico's mountains and camino routes are close by. Sea kayaking and canoeing on the Sella river were also a great experience. Our group comprised of 6 adults and the apartment accomadated us comfortably. Colin was an excellent host, providing us with lots of useful information before our arrival and was readily accessible by phone during our stay. I would certainly recommend Colin's apartment

Lovely apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the end of August 2016. Posada is ideal as a base for a holiday with various beaches etc within a short distance and the mountains not far away too. We had 2 nights in Potes before staying for a week in Posada.

The apartment is clean, well equipped, lots of local information provided, the rooms are spacious and having the garden is ideal. The supermarket and other shops are a short walk away. Getting into and out of the garage is a little tight but fine!

We had days out to various places - Ribadesella was the favourite where we were fortunate to see La Vuelta cycle through. You are only 2 hours from Bilbao on the half empty motorway and we managed to take in a game of football (Bilbao v Barcelona) one evening.

Lots of small beaches nearby though the wide expanse of Ribadesella was my favourite. Llanes is nearby and is a harbour town with a good choice of restaurants and shops.

We also went to the Cabarceno Nature Park which was ok ish despite rave reviews elsewhere. Great place but when you drive round and finally see one tiger lying motionless in the sun it is not that inspiring!

We would certainly recommend the apartment to anyone looking for some quality accommodation in the area.

Comfortable, well-equipped apartment, great views

  • 5 of 5

Three bed apartment with comfortable beds, well-equipped throughout and great views from the small, private garden to the mountains. The owners provide plenty of information about the area and activities that are available, with some excellent suggestions for eating and drinking, in the town itself and in Llanes and surrounding villages. The apartment is ideally situated close to beaches and a little further afield the mountains of the Picos de Europa.we also had a day kayaking (for softies)on the River Sella. Happy to recommend this property for couples or families.

Great Holiday in a Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks in Covabella at the end of July and beginning of August. Posada is an excellent base for a family holiday, with lovely beaches just a short distance away, and easy access to the mountains and lakes nearby.

The apartment is great for a family holiday. It is clean, really well equipped, the rooms are spacious and we enjoyed eating our meals in the garden. The position in the town is ideal, it is peaceful, with the shops just a short walk away.

The areas of Asturias and Cantabria are beautiful, we really enjoyed the coastline and the sandy beaches – the sea is clear and ideal for snorkelling. Our favourite beaches were Playa de San Antonio, Playa de Toranda and Playa do Poo!! Llanes is nearby and is a harbour town with a good choice of restaurants and shops. It is also good to walk around and see the historic buildings.

Other places we enjoyed visiting were Comillas where Gaudi’s house was really interesting and the town is very picturesque. The Cabarceno Nature Park is a good day out and quite different to any zoo we’ve been to before. You drive around the zoo and get out at each enclosure. The animals have very large spaces and seeing 20 or more brown bears was amazing. We also took the Funicular de Bulnes railway and enjoyed visiting the village and walking up in to the mountains.

We would certainly recommend both the area and apartment as a great place for a holiday, and hope to return again one day.
