There is a large common lounge with TV in the main farmhouse which all guests are free to use.
The self catering cottages are spacious and come with well equipped kitchens, lounge areas and one or two bedrooms in each. For an extra fee all guests can also enjoy a particularly good and generous breakfast, with a great spread of Asturian and Spanish homemade fare to be sampled.
Outside there are some charming gardens with nice views over the sea, a terrace area with seating and a small children’s playground. with see-saw and swings. You are of course welcome to wander around the farm and meet some of the animals; the cows and donkeys, and join in some tasks if you so wish like collecting fresh eggs from the hens for breakfast. You’ll find the farm owners friendly and hospitable, and in a very short time you will be made to feel right at home, in both the house and on the farm.
Near to both Gijon and Oviedo El Piensu Farm Stay has a beautifully remote setting right on the edge of the sea in this the green heart of northern Spain; Asturias. There is a pathway from the farm down to the sea and from there, if you’re feeling fit, you can walk or run the 6km along the coast to the lighthouse at Lastres en Luces, to the pretty little villages of Cudillero and Lastres, or Santamera with its 13th century church, and also to some fine beaches at Rodiles and La Griega.
Fans of Asturias’ most well known export; cider, will appreciate this farm stay’s location even more. The local region is Villaviciosa and it is known as being probably the best area in Asturias for cider. You can sample it almost everywhere in the local area, including at this farm stay, and you can also arrange visits to local cider orchards etc.
The two main cities in the region can both be reached in around a half an hour. Gijon being a little less and Oviedo being a little more. Asturias International Airport is the other side of Gijon and should take no more than 45 minutes from the farm.
