Why cristina corominas kausek chose Distrito Rural Este
This real estate of modern architecture and sculptural design is composed of a main floor and two complimentary ones with extraordinary views to the sea, beach, mountains and seafront of Gijón. It is oriented towards the south and has great windows where the sun shines all day long. With bright rooms, great living spaces, a big veranda and a garden, this house also offers a lot of privacy thanks to the design of the trees that surround the plot. All of these qualities allow you to enjoy a very functional, singular and unique real estate. It is strategically located at the crossroad of where countryside and city meet, so you can either walk directly to the city or walk to the rural area following the coastline. The distance to the city is less than one km if you take the seafront (there is also a bus stop close by), and the same path continues 10 km along the coast with access to several beaches. Moreover, the area surrounding the house is quiet and spacious, having both urban services and shopping centres within close reach. Gijón (and its surroundings) is a historical enclave that dates from the Roman times due to its central location in the geography of Asturias. This geography has indeed a great variety of landscapes with magnificent natural beaches, unique Atlantic forests and the Cantabria Mountains (where the famous “Picos de Europa” are located).

We have spent a nice family holiday in Cristina and German house. We were 2 adults and 2 teenagers, although originally planned to be 6-8 people. The villa and the plot are very spacious, with big windows making the place very bright and comfortable. The house is on a hill so we enjoyed beautiful views from the house on San Lorenzo beach and on sierra including sunsets which made the days longer. Our hosts gave us lots of useful and practical tips were to go for walking trips, surfing classes, beaches, all sort of practical tips for shopping and restaurants including famous Asturian cakes and sidra . The house is very comfortable, with big rooms and bathrooms, modern fitout and breathtaking library of German. We had 5 bedrooms for our use although 2 out of 3 queen beds would probably not be too comfy for sharing. I would clearly want to be back there in the future.
Perfectly located and awesome
Everything was perfect! The view is absolutely gorgeous. Close enough to walk downtown. The kids loved the surf lessons and they even had someone who spoke English! The food was wonderful and the owners delightful. They were extremely helpful and understanding. I would go back again if I ever get to Gijon again.
What a stunning house on the hillside overlooking Gijon! We have stayed all over the world and this is without doubt one of the finest properties we have enjoyed. The house is spacious with large living areas that easily accommodated our large party, which included two small children. And with rain on a few days, this meant we all had plenty of space to relax inside without getting in each others' way. And on sunny days we were able to play games - basketball and table tennis - and the children played on the swings. Cristina is an excellent host, ensuring that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. We hope to return next time we're in Gijon!

Semana Santa 2015
Nuestra estancia duró 4 días, y nos alojamos 4 adultos y 4 niños. Sin lugar a dudas se trata de una casa excepcional en todos los sentidos (comodidad, belleza, localización, etc). Al poco tiempo de llegar, nos sentimos como en nuestra propia casa, pudiendo disfrutar de unos días fantásticos.
Tanto el anuncio como los comentarios de otros viajeros reflejaban fielmente la realidad. Además, la vivienda se encontraba en perfectas condiciones, y tanto Cristina como su marido nos brindaron un servicio excepcional, poniendo a nuestro alcance todas las comodidades posibles.
Por todo ello creo que se trata de una vivienda 100% recomendable y a la que volvería a ir si repito Gijón como destino. El único "pero", por una cuestión personal, es que la casa no tiene persianas que eviten totalmente la entrada de claridad por las mañanas. En cualquier caso, esta pequeña cuestión no empaña ni lo más mínimo lo maravillosa que es esta casa.
If you are coming from the north of Spain, you can access Gijón by land via Bilbao, Santander and Santiago de Compostela, or via Madrid and León if you are coming from the south. You can also come by train from Madrid.
By sea there are ferries from Saint Nazaire and Poole, and ones to Santander from Plymouth, Portsmouth, Poole and Le Havre.
By plane you can fly to the Airport of Asturias (40 km from Gijón), to Santander (170 km) or to Bilbao (260 km).
Asturias not only offers nature but also culture. For instance there is the unique preromantic art with monuments such as the Santa Maria del Naranco, the San Miguel de Lillo or the Valdedios; the gothic cathedral of Oviedo or the historical building of the University of Oviedo. There are many different museums (Arts, Jurasic, Mine, Cider, etc.). In Gijón you can also visit the Laboral University, the Evaristo Valle Museum or the Ethnographic Museum, and in Aviles you can find the “Niemeyer Centre”.
There are also quite a few medieval villages (Llanes, Villaviciosa, Avilés, etc.) linked to the Camino de Santiago in the north and characterised by their historical centres and unique “Indian” architecture, which is the result of the Asturian emigration to America.
Last but not least, the region's gastronomy, very characteristic due to its history and geography, is diverse and of high quality. The vast and abrupt coast produces a great variety of fish and seafood, and the countryside and mountains have boosted the quality of the meat and the many different regional cheeses. Two typical dishes are the “fabada”, made from beans that are cultivated in the flood plains, and rice milk, which has its origin in the great link between Asturias and America. The typical drink is cider (from apples), which is drunk in a shared glass in “sidrerías” (specialised local bars that can be found all over the place). There are also several restaurants that have even been recognised by the “Michelin Guide”.
Welcome and ENJOY!
