Casa Maite (AND1)
Cantabria and Asturias Village
Collado de Andrin Location Type
This compact, cosy cottage with a pretty garden and porch to one side, stands on a lane with other houses around, on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Collado de Andrin in the municipality of Parres in eastern Asturias.
Simple, but comfortable and well equipped, the cottage, furnished in a country style, has a pleasant homely feel to it and the friendly owners will make sure you have everything you need.
At 400 metres, up a winding, but good road, above the gorge of the Desfiladero de los Beyos, it commands spectacular views of the dramatic mountains and the Picos de Europa.
You certainly feel surrounded by nature here and the fresh air alone gives you a feeling of well being.
Though seemingly far removed from civilization, the busy town of Cangas de Onis, is just five kiolmetres away, bars and restaurants at two kilometres and lovely beaches at Ribadesella just over half an hour.
For the energetic, it is a great base for walking and for water sports.
Off the lane to garden(not enclosed) with table and benches and fixed BBQ. Two steps from lane to small covered porch with table and chairs. Stable style front door opens off porch into living room and through to kitchen. Up wood stairs from living room to tiny landing. Off this bathroom and two bedrooms (one double and one twin).
