Pruneda | Ref: PRU3 | Bedrooms: 1 | Sleeps: 2

Charming, very well equipped rustic cottage with shared pool, in cider country.

A C17th farmhouse, in the small village of Pruneda, in the heart of cider country in central Asturias, has recently been sympathetically converted into three attractive holiday homes with a swimming pool shared between them.

Maintaining traditional features, the cottages are tastefully and comfortably furnished, attractively decorated and very well equipped, the owners accustomed to English tastes.

All cottages have their own gardens or sitting out space with views onto the village, fields and hills and the Picos mountains beyond.

Lying in gently, undulating countryside, Pruneda, has a bar, serving barbeques at the weekends and the nearest shops and facilities are at three kilometres at Nava and there is a good choice of country restaurants nearby.

The fantastic Playa de Rodiles is a forty minute drive away and there are many marked walking trails within easy reach from the properties. The owners can provide information and give advice about these.

Pruneda is a small, quiet, farming village, in the heart of the cider region in central Asturias between Oviedo and the Picos de Europa and more locally Nava and Villaviciosa on the coast.

There is a bar in the village which serves barbeques at the weekends, but the nearest town with all facilities is Nava at three kilometres with a great choice of cider bars and restaurants.

There are also some very good country restaurants within three kilometres of the village, notably at nearby Ceceda.

The nearest beach is the fantastic Playa de Rodiles, a forty minute drive, and the interesting and lively cities of Oviedo, Gijon and Aviles, all within easy reach.

There are great opportunities for walking in the local area and the hills beyond Nava (Pena Mayor) with marked footpaths.
