Description

A whole dynasty is contained within the stone walls of this palace which harbours the souls of the noble sovereigns of the Astur Kingdom. They could have found no better place than this to rest their spirit, tired from so much warring and battles through the centuries.

This property is a typical 18th century Asturian “Casona” with stone walls, wooden ceilings and gallery, that has been fully restored while conserving all the rusticity and noble materials of the time. It is now converted it into a hotel and restaurant, with 4,500 square metres of garden

There are 10 rooms, 4 of which are duplex and one has a sitting room. All are different with a rustic style, and named after Asturian kings. They are equipped with TV, telephone, full en suite bathroom, safe, Internet connection, etc.

Breakfast served with homemade produce, sponge cake, biscuits, cured ham on toast, jams, yoghurts, fresh fruit juice, espresso coffee and fruit. The Favila Restaurant offers highly elaborated traditional cuisine using local produce : Asturian tortos (a type of pancakes), game, anglerfish and prawn brochettes,etc.

The area is famous for the Asturian Pre-Romanesque Art, which is unique in Spain. We would suggest you to visit the church of San Salvador de Valdedios and Sta. Maria de Lugas.
Drive to the fishing ports of Tazones and Lastres, which are very typical and quaint. You have a couple of beaches nearby like Rodiles, España and Meron. Go for a walk in the Villaviciosa Estuary Nature Park, the Riu Profundu Watermill Route, Peña Cabrea, etc.
The Jurassic Museum in Colunga is also worth a visit. Also you can canoe down the River Sella from Arriondas to Ribadesella, following the route of the famous Descent of El Sella race that takes place every August.

 

Additional information

The geography of Asturias appears to be a geological explosion towards the sky. Above all, it is a vertical land of imposing mountains such as thePicos de Europa, where rivers flowing towards the sea have chiselled deep ravines and beautiful river valleys. And then there is more than 190 miles of irregular coastline offering a succession of about 100 beaches, protected fishing harbours and navigable estuaries.

The main tourist routes in Asturias are the roads, which cross the land from the sea through the mountains passes, each road more picturesque than the one before. Southern Asturias is separated from Castilla y Leon by the Cordillera Cantabrica mountain barrier. Eastern Asturias is known for its proximity to the sea and the mountains. In fact the stunning Picos de Europa Mountains are only 12 miles from the coast.
