“Rest and relaxation doesn't come any better than this”
Touring the Cantabrian coast was a new experience for us and La Rondita proved to be very convenient for the day trips we had planned to both coastal and inland attractions. Along the coast, we drove as far as Santander in the east and Cudillero in the west. Southwards, we visited the Picos de Europa and nearby villages. We tended to use the 'N' routes on our outward journeys so that we could stop along the way as often as we wished and, when possible, we returned to base on the E70 motorway. What we particularly liked about La Rondita, was the easy access to beautiful beaches and amazing bays which were close to cafes and restaurants in picturesque harbours and marinas. Our favourite places were Gijon, Lastres, Ribadesella, and especially Llanes on the coastal route and Cangas de Onis and Covadonga, in and around the Picos. Wherever we went, there were many family owned restaurants off the beaten track. Their local home cooked dishes were delicious, especially 'Fabada', which is a must in asturias. Each evening at La Rondita, we sat al fresco in the garden and treated ourselves to a glass or two of well chilled sparkling Cava as we watched the sunset fade beyond the distant mountains. We will be back.
“Wonderful activities - a place for all seasons”
As 'serial visitors' we've been to La Rondita about five times. We always love it and last time we brought friends. Whatever the season (we've tried all four) there's so much to see and do. Canoeing down the River Sella (a first for our daughter), hiking along the spectacular Cares Gorge, walking above the village through morning mists and beautiful spring flower meadows, body-boarding and relaxing on long sandy beaches (Playa de Vega stretches way into the distance), fossil-hunting and following dinosaur tracks along the Jurassic coast, exploring the prehistoric cave paintings at Tito Bustillo, foraging for chestnuts and walnuts near the village, drinking 'sidra' with the locals ... this is just a fabulous place. The horse fiesta at Infiesto will always remain with us - a colourful parade of traditional costume and andalusian horsemanship, followed by a memorable traditional meal of 'fabada'. Sara and Bill (the owners) are incredibly helpful - they can recommend the best walks, beaches and eateries (from experience!). The journey from the airport is easy - the roads are so clear, and all the main attractions (even 'out-of-the-way' beaches) are within a short drive. There are good shops in the nearby town and the local bakery makes for easy picnics. La Rondita itself is perfect for us; it has all the modern conveniences we need and an 'al fresco' dining area overlooking traditional tiled village rooves and the mountains beyond. During summer, try river-swimming at the end of the village (there's a small 'beach') - bring your goggles and you should see the salmon and trout! It's a wonderful place and we hope to return for many years to come!
“Wonderful wintertime treat”
Arrived with my family just after Christmas as, we were interested to see the festival or fiesta for The Three Kings. What a treat - we saw the arrival of the 3 Kings into arriondas on horseback on the night of the 5th January and that after we enjoyed the fireworks. This was a great family occasion, as old and young were both made welcome in the local bars. There was a real buzz and anticipation as the next day people woke to find presents left in empty shoes on the doorstep! Even in winter, we still managed to enjoy walking in the mountains around the house and surrounding areas, which have crystal clear views of the snowy Picos de Europa in the distance. We loved staying here so much that this was our second visit to the house and our first was in early autumn a couple of years back. We had sunny beaches to ourselves and enjoyed walking along the Jurassic coastline where you can see dinosaur footprints and caves. We also hiked around the lakes at Covadonga - breath-taking! We ate out a fair bit at local restaurants which generally offer good hearty food at very reasonable prices, but shopping at the local supermarkets is marvellous too. We found excellent regional produce - ham, cheese, wine and delicious olive oil - makes picnicking a doodle. Get the friendly and informative owners to tell you about the best local restaurant about 30 mins walk away, and bring your appetite! House is lovely and comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing self catering holiday - can't wait go back again.
Response from the owner Dear Gina, Many thanks for your review. This one especially helps us as it shows other travelllers what Asturias can be like all year round, not just in the summer months. It was great to have you visiting a second time and we are delighted to hear you saying that you "can't wait to go back again". We really would love to see you all again! Kind regards, Sara, Bill and the girls
“Home from home”
This was our second stay at la Rondita and it won't be our last! A charming village, an excellent location (between the coast and the mountains) and an absolutely lovely place to stay. The house was very clean, well-equipped and we had plenty of room (a bonus when you have two small boys!). The garden was a lovely place to sit and take in the view. The welcome pack with information about the region was excellent and Sara and Bill were always willing to add their personal recommendations which were always spot on! They really were exceptionally helpful and welcoming, making sure we had everything we needed (including lots of thoughtful extras such as toys and books for the children). A wonderful holiday!
“Fantastic escape in breathtaking location”
Recently returned from La Rondita after a superb week of peace, rest and adventure in beautiful asturias. The house is extremely comfortable, private and exceptionally clean. Evening drinks or morning coffee on the terrace can't be beaten; the views! The owners, Bill and Sara, live nearby and were so helpful in helping us organise ourselves. They really know the area and the locals, plus they gave us lots of tips to make the most of seeing the coast (dramatic beaches and charming fishing villages) and the Picos de Europa and nearby mountains (left info in the house for a lot of local walks which were all stunning). The village has a train station; really recommend the afternoon visit to Cuevas - spectacular local cave with bar next to station. This place is so beautiful; green, lush and quiet. On so many of the walks, we hardly saw a soul. Really recommend the local restaurant, El Llosu; the "parrillada" (barbecued meat) is incredible, plus the "fabada" (bean stew) at El Meson is divine. We'll be back and will tell all our friends and family all about it. Thank you La Rondita!!
