Asturias is a principality on the north coast of Spain. It offers mountain scenery, beaches and a coastline on to the Cantabrian Sea and Nay of Biscay. Notable seaside towns are Llanes and the quaint fishing village of Playa del Silencio, near Cudillero. Sea food is fresh and plentiful and adds variety to paella and other regional Asturian  dishes. Crab dishes are a speciality in the the port city of Gijon.

Summer is a good time to visit for the best weather, gay summer festivals and to sample the cider houses. There is a Cider Museum to visit in Nava and all that cider relies on extensive apple orchards and their crop. Asturia is also famous for its cheese production, especially for Cabrales. Asturia welcomes visitors who love variety and are prepared to do more than just sit on a beach.

Head for the mountains for magnificent scenery and thriving wildlife. It is still possible to come across wolves and bears in more remote areas.

The Picos de Europa mountains are a dramatic limestone landscape cut through by the mile deep Cares Canyon and fast flowing streams. The peaks reach up to a dizzying 2600 metres. Hidden under the rock are some of the deepest and most mysterious caves in Spain. The highest peaks are challenging enough for experienced climbers. Hikers might spot rare creatures such as lynx or chamois amongst the trees on the lower slopes.

Visit the medieval streets of Oviedo which are home to a host of museums and imposing monuments. Priests and pilgrims have walked these streets for centuries, 17th century mansions whisper of past prosperity and political intrigue. Visit the Archaeological Museum, housed in a medieval monastery or the World Heritage Site of San Julian de los Prados. On the 21st of September, the city comes alive to the sights and sounds of traditional music and dancing on the colourful floats of the Day of America festival.

Rent a villa, apartment or traditional Asturian village house to discover this fascinating corner of northern Spain.
