Casa Los Bufones (OVI1)
Cantabria and Asturias Village
Ovio Location Type
This 100 year old, detached farmhouse is located in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to some of the many great beaches spread along the Eastern Asturian Coast, offering stunning sea and mountain views from almost every corner.
The interior of the house is spacious and functional, retaining many of its original features and displaying loads of old furniture and antiques, contributing to create a characterful and inviting holiday home.
A well equipped country style kitchen with traditional white tiles and an old cooking stove, and a charming reading room on the first floor, add to the appeal.
Outside, a garden, mainly lawn and a few flower beds, allows you to relax and enjoy the views. A large sun terrace on the first floor offers spectacular views of the Picos de Europa mountains and even the Naranjo de Bulnes, one of the most emblematic peaks in Spain. The courtyard at the entrance to the property is a safe place for the children to play. There is also a garage for one car.
Set in a scenic coastal area with wonderful walking routes and plenty of activites to keep your family busy during your stay: visiting the Tito Bustillo Cave in Ribadesella or the Dinosaur Museum in Colunga, taking the funicular up to Bulnes, or just enjoying the hustle and bustle of the popular cider bars which are found in abundance throughout Asturias. On stormy days the natural sea geysers (Los Bufones) are a must, there are plenty to choose from, some can even be seen - and heard - from the house.
