Well equipped first floor flat with friendly, helpful hosts. Car needed!
Very well-appointed kitchen with thoughtful touches such as olive oil provided for those who intend to cook, and a fresh lemon in the fruit bowl. Dharp knives and sufficient cooking utensils. Twin and double bedrooms are not very big, but adequate and comfortable enough. Balcony for good weather. Shower is hot and towels plentiful. It would be rather a squash for four guests, especially on the balcony, but it was perfect for three. Only potential downside is that it's a rather out-of-the-way village (you'd have to go into Ridabesella to eat or drink out as there's nowhere within walking distance) but that's a given as the self-catering is very easy.
Lovely quiet spot
We had a lovely week here. The house is in a lovely quiet spot, but within easy reach of most of Asturias. The Apartment had everything we needed and the hosts were friendly and helpful.
MAY Half-term break
It was fine for me, my son and my nephew. The house was easy enough to find, just off the local road into Ribadesella from the east and not far from the nearest autovia exit, though the approach roads are very narrow. The apartment itself is upstairs in the owner's property and is ideal for a couple and two others. The bedrooms are a little small but the beds are comfortable enough and the living room is big enough to relax in. There is a small kitchen area and a dining table, as well as a microwave. The balcony outside has nice views across the valley to the mountain to the south and it was very pleasant sitting outside in the morning and evenings. There was no wi-fi advertised in the spec, but it is there, though it was a little weak at times, so more than two users might affect it. The owner is very friendly, as are her dogs and cats, who will come and greet you when you arrive. The weather was very wet at first, but we had some nice days later, which made the trip up to the mountains wonderful, with clear skies and lovely walks.
It's very close to Ribadesella, which is a beautifully-set coastal town with long, clean beaches and a pretty harbour. There are some interesting sites nearby, such as the dinosaur footprints at Playa de la Griega and the Jurassic Museum of Asturias, ideal for pre-teens, though the two fourteen-year-olds enjoyed their visit. In Ribadesella itself, there is a prehistoric cave and a museum, but you need to book visits to the cave in advance, so we didn't get a chance to visit. The house is ideally placed to visit the local area, especially the local Fito mountain range and the Picos de Europa national park with the cable car at Fuente De. The Sanctuary at Covadonga is well worth a visit as well just to see the setting and Oviedo is a lovely city about an hour's drive away, with a lovely park and a beautiful cathedral and medieval buildings. There is a very strong Celtic identity in the area and the locals make great play of it with their crafts and souvenirs. The only thing to think about is the weather, as this part of Spain can get as much rain as Britain, but it also mans that the area is beautifully green. I can't wait to go back and explore further.
Excellent accommodation in stunning scenery
The accommodation was clean and well-equipped.
We received a very warm welcome.
The cliff-top walks were easy to reach and magnificent.
We struggled to find the cottage but that's all part of the adventure - we had to ask the local people who did their very best (despite the language barrier) and eventually a lady stopped a passing car and told the driver to lead us to the cottage. A lovely start to a lovely holiday.
Sauber, seriös, freundlich und ruhig
Wir fanden das Apartment sehr sauber und ganz hervorragend ausgestattet vor. Große und kleine Handtücher sind vorhanden, Bettwäsche ebenfalls, beides ließ keine Wünsche offen. Die ländliche Umgebung hat ihren ganz eigenen Charme, sehr ruhig und ideal als Basis für tägliche Ausflüge an die umliegenden Strände und Örtlichkeiten. Die Hilfsbereitschaft der Vermieter Sibille und Rainer könnte nicht größer und zuverlässiger sein. Ohne Vorbehalt empfohlen!
Eine Woche Hochgenuss
Ein wunderbarer Ausgangspunkt um Asturien zu entdecken
Casa Toriellu is a beautiful renovated asturian country house with stonewalls and respecting the local tradition where we rent one apartment. It is located in a coastal reserve area near beaches and cliffs and 5 km from Ribadesella a little fishing village with all the services you need. It is ideally situated as a base for exploring the many attractions that Asturias has to offer.
