Find your ideal villa:


La Casa Rosa, Cantabria and Asturias

La Riera | Ref: COL7 | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8

Spacious and stylish set by a stream, between mountains and sea.

This spacious, light, modern, detached house, built with traditional materials, stands in its own large garden by the little, trout fishing river "Rio Libardon" in the delightful, peaceful, village of La Riera with its apple orchards and carefully tended vegetable patches and some fine examples of typical Asturian domestic architecture.

Very well maintained, nicely equipped and comfortably furnished with the bonus of three bathrooms, it makes a great choice for two families or larger groups.

Just four kilometres from the lovely beach "Playa La Griega", it is tucked between the "Dinosaur" coast and the unspoilt port and town of Lastres and the dramatic Sierra de Sueve, making it an ideal base for those looking for a mixture of mountains and the sea.

The interesting, old town of Colunga at two kilometres provides you with shops and restaurants and the lively cities of Oviedo and Gijon are just a forty minute drive.

NB - the owners prefer Saturday start day in the summer school holidays

La Riera

A sleepy farming village divided into several "barrios", situated in the pretty countryside with fruit trees and vegetable gardens and cows grazing, just two kilometres from the interesting old town of Colunga, four kilometres to the beach, Playa La Griega, and the Dinosaur Coast, and six kilometres to the lovely old unspoilt fishing port of Lastres.

It is ideally situated for visiting the cider town of Villaviciosa, the elegant resort of Ribadesella and not far away are the cities of Oviedo and Gijón, both great for shopping and for culture.

There is no shop or bar, but mobile vans come to the village and Colunga should have all that you need.
