Villas in Asturias
Said to be Spain's best kept secret, this charming and lesser-known region of Spain is one of the most authentic, it is claimed, having never been under Moorish rule. Discover a natural landscape of mountains, beaches and meandering hills, with the Sella river running through; a popular place for canoeing. The historic centre boasts fairy tale-like architecture and religious buildings, while its largest city Gijon, is known for its art and culture, home to 18th-century Revillagigedo Palace, international arts centre and its grand botanical garden. The capital Oviedo is brimming with historical and architectural wonders and iconic Monte Naranco mountain is the perfect place to enjoy sweeping landscape views.
Whether you want a relaxing break in a traditional Spanish region, an exhilarating holiday of outdoor activities, or a sightseeing experience, Asturias has it all. Unwind on the beaches of Gijon, with its fishing village atmosphere, trek the fertile Asturian valleys and in the evenings let your hair down in Cimadevilla, one of the region's liveliest neighbourhoods. Don't miss the prehistoric caves of Ribadesella, where you can see ancient 14,000 year-old cave paintings etched on the walls. Get a further taste of one of the most fascinating parts of Spain with a trip to Oviedo's Archaeology Museum of Asturias.
