El Rincon del Pescador, Cantabria and Asturias

Lastres | Ref: LAS2 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6

Charming fisherman's cottage with spectacular views over the harbour & coast.

This delightful, three storey, semi-detached, attractively restored, fisherman's cottage, is in a lovely little corner of the picturesque, ancient port of Lastres. Commanding spectacular views of the "Dinosaur" coast and port from its upper floors, it has the added bonus of a small enclosed garden across the way with a partial sea view.

The town beach and port are just a 100 metre walk and La Playa de Lastres one kilometre. Tastefully decorated and furnished with interesting pictures and ornaments to make a cosy, comfortable holiday home, it has central heating which makes it a good out of season choice.

Bars, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance and the fascinating Dinosaur Museum "El Museo Jurassico" a short drive. There are wonderful opportunities for walking and cycling in the Sierra del Sueve and the Picos de Europa just beyond.

Well placed for Asturias' historical cities of Oviedo, Gijon and Aviles too, but once here, you might just be content to relax and soak in the views in this very special spot.

NB: Due to its location and traditional three-storey construction this house may not be the best choice for those with walking difficulties or with small children in pushchairs. Please call us if in any doubt.

Lastres

A typical Asturian fishing village of which few remain unspoilt by tourism, in some ways like its Cornish counterpart but with some important differences; first there’s the stunning backdrop of thousand metre plus mountains, then the palaces built by adventurers returning from the Americas, the restaurants serving good seafood at surprisingly affordable prices and the palm trees and lemon trees dotted here and there.

This near-vertical village, well preserved perhaps due to the lack of suitable land for development, is a labyrinth of steep winding stone cobbled lanes, leading up to the church of San Roque which commands one of the finest views in Northern Spain.

Back down at sea level there is the still active fishing port and a sporting marina as well as the nice little town beach. Within a short drive there are also the beaches of Isla and La Griega, the latter of which has fossilised dinosaur footprints in the rocks at the far end, hence the siting of the recently opened Asturian dinosaur museum set up on the hill on the way from Lastres.

There are no end of possibilities for walkers, be it coastal routes leading from the top of the village or mountain trekking in the Sierra del Sueve (at over 1000m, from here one can enjoy the finest views of the Picos and, on a clear day, as far as Santander!) or in the Picos de Europa themselves, just beyond.


In the village there is a good selection of bars and restaurants and boat trips can be arranged for fishing or just sightseeing in the summer months.

Centrally placed in Asturias this is a good base for excursions with Oviedo, Gijon and Aviles, the mountains and the eastern coast all within easy reach - but you might just be happy to stay in Lastres!
