La Griega

A pretty, peaceful, farming hamlet, set in unspoilt countryside with great views of the Sierra de Sueve, just one kilometre from the lovely beach Playa La Griega on the "Dinosaur" coast (reached from the village by a lane) and from the interesting old town of Colunga. Though small, it boasts a fine "palacio" and a sizeable church where the annual fiesta is held at the beginning of October.

Though there are no facilities here, bread vans come daily and Colunga should have all that you need, including a weekly market on Thursdays.

It is ideally situated for visiting the fascinating port and town of Lastres, 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.

Local Activities

1. Beach Playa La Griega – Only 900 m. away - this is a fantastic beach, accessible on foot down a lovely lane. Other great beaches at Lastres or La Isla, are a short drive away.
2.Wander round the delightful town and port at Lastres and the elegant resort of Ribadesella.
3. Visit Oviedo and Gijon — two very interesting cities, very different to each other. The stately architecture of Oviedo contrasts with the port spirit of Gijón.
4. Picos de Europa National Park — 45 minutes drive from the house, this is one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Europe.
5. Walking — Sierra del Sueve and Sierra del Fitu, with fabulous views of the coast and the Picos de Europa.
6. Visit the Museo Jurasico, literally just down the road.
7. Impressive “bufones” in Pría, near Llanes — observe at first-hand the strength of the sea: the waves shoot up from underground caves and come out through holes made thousands of years ago.
8. Enjoy the local gastronomy, especially the delicious fish and seafood at the nearby port of Lastres.
9.Visit the impressive caves of Tito Bustillo near Ribadesella.
10. Go canoeing on the nearby Rio Sella.

Reviews of this property

Read our clients' independent reviews

"Six couples regularly go away on motorcycles, this year we travelled to Spain and stayed in a fantastic villa in Colunga. We had fabulous ride outs into the mountains and along the coast, enjoyed walking to the beach nearby and relaxing in the gorgeous grounds of the villa. Much fun was had dining alfresco enjoying the peaceful stunning scenery, making the most of the excellent facilities in the villa", (Client 2016)

"We have not been to Asturias before, would definitely recommend it, beach was perfect for young children with plenty of pools and streams to paddle in as well as the sand and waves, and the villa was within walking distance of both the beach and the small town with shops and cafes. The scenery is lovely, and there were various good places we found to eat in", (Client 2016)

"Our first holiday in northern Spain, everything I'd hoped for, great location being accessible for the beach and the local town. The beach was perfect for young children, with plenty of rock-pools and a stream for paddling in, as well as the actual beach and waves. Plenty to do in the area, and a lot that we didn't get round to this time, so we may well come back", (Client 2016)
