Enchanting C18th Asturian Casona with Medieval Tower right on the coast, AsturiasVillademoros | Ref: HVIL1 | Bedrooms: 11
Set in glorious extensive grounds, part meadowland, with oaks and chestnuts sitting happily with camelias and hydrangeas, it lies between the picturesque fishing ports of Cudillero and Luarca and is near the pretty village of Cadavedo with its shell shaped beach. Coastal walks from the hotel are a delight!
A magical spot, but with an equally appealing interior - traditional architecture of old granite walls and beamed ceilings blend perfectly with contemporary design and furniture. Polished wooden floors, warm colours, soft lighting and interesting modern paintings along with an open fireplace in the living room, create the perfect relaxing and cosy, country atmosphere.
The tranquil, stylish, individually decorated bedrooms, each offer a special view, be it of the sea, mountains or woods and pastureland. The stupendous suite in the three storey medieval tower with a rooftop terrace is ideal for honeymooners or for families.
Delicious homemade breakfasts and dinners, using locally sourced produce are served in the attractive dining room.
The charming, friendly and knowledgeable owner, Manolo, and his welcoming and efficient helpers will make you feel at home at once and you will find it hard to tear yourselves away at the end of your stay!
