What The Region Offers

Casa Ordiales is centrally placed in Asturias The area has been declared a bio-sphere area, a protected natural space of special interest and has more recently started to become a holiday destination for those more discerning holiday makers looking for a Spanish alternative to the busy and expensive Southern Costas, the Spanish themselves have been keeping it a well guarded secret!!

The environmental richness of the nearby Redes Natural Park with its pretty, attractive villages, beautiful forests, tumbling streams, well marked trails, high alpine meadows, imposing limestone mountains and a way of life that is steeped in culture, is very easily accessible from Casa Ordiales. The area is perfect for all manner of activities including fly fishing on the Nalon river, walking on the well marked trails, rock climbing, mountaineering, pony trekking, caving, mountain biking, or a gentle stroll with a picnic!

There is also some lovely walking straight from the house with no need to drive. April, May and June are particularly fine months for spotting an amazing array of wild flowers particularly orchids.

Visits to the national Park of the Picos de Europa and several other national parks including Somiedo, Peña Ubino, Quiros and the Nature reserve of the Villaviciosa Estuary, can be undertaken easily in a day. These parks are home to some of Europe’s dwindling population of Bears and Wolves. Birdwatchers look out for a wide variety of birds including Golden Eagles and Egyptian Vultures. One of the lovely features of the house is hearing the Owls calling in the night.

Oviedo the regions capital, and the attractive coastal city of Gijon situated on the Costa Verde, are both half an hour away. Leon, a remarkable city of fine Romanesque and Gothic monuments is just one and a half hours away and ski resort San Isidro one hour.

The spectacular rugged coastline of Asturias’s Costa Verde is reminiscent of Cornwall or the West coast of Scotland. It has sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs, secluded coves, small fishing villages and excellent seafood restaurants.
Villaviciosa’s Rodilles beach a popular surfing venue, is 45mins drive.
