the Village location, Asturias
Asturias, 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.
Asturias is honest, authentic, full of life, respectful of the past and present, attentive, courageous, welcoming, modern and cosmopolitan.
See you in paradise this summer..............
