Overview

Back on our books!! This property wasn´t available for holiday lets from 2016 and it is now be available again for lets in 2021. 

Here is a super rustic holiday cottage for a couple or a small family who want to be right by the coast but in a real house, in a hamlet, with a safe garden and a view.

The beauty of the Asturias coast is that it remains natural and free of the urbanization that afflicts other seafronts in Spain. Here, cows and sheep often graze all the way down to the beach and green countryside predominates over the occasional settlement.

The country coastal lane to the cottage passes through beautifully traditional stone-built hamlets with typical Asturian hórreos (granaries). It’s extremely quiet and you simply park outside.

The house is surprisingly big and offers different spaces to sit and relax, or play, as well as a large, walled garden with a lemon tree.

It’s been in the same family for more than one generation and you can see how it has been restored and improved in lovingly piecemeal fashion over the years.

The ground floor divides into three rooms. The stone walls and original wood ceiling of a furnished reception room extend as far as cushioned, rattan seats arranged by french windows that open to the garden.

It’s a nicely recessed spot to sit back and look out into the low-walled, circular garden, beyond which fields continue with no other neighbour in sight.

The main room is the biggest space of all: a fabulous lounge whose high ceiling reaches into the rafters. The Cider House gets its name from the full-size cider press that occupies a corner of the room. The old apple press is so large you could fit a double bed in it. The flooring is of wood and there’s variable lighting. This supremely quiet room gives you two distinct sitting areas, one by the TV, the other by a huge picture window that looks out onto the garden and countryside, so that the view from the white sofa is all green.

From the lounge, an iron staircase (unsuitable for toddlers) goes up to the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms, from where another, more manageable, wooden staircase descends to the kitchen.

Going up one flight of stairs and down another gives the cottage a pleasantly circular arrangement.

Both bathrooms have showers. One has adjustable showerhead height and a large basin. The other has blue mosaic tiling, a rain shower and two wash basins. To access the second bathroom, you pass through a doorway with low clearance, tall people would need to mind their head.

The kitchen is a nicely plastered and tiled room. It has a marble top work surface and all you need for self-catering. At the far end, a large dining table is set round with low stools, rather than chairs with backs.

You can also dine outside in the garden, of course, where terrace furniture has a sunshade, if required.

The garden is one big lawn, and more lush, green, farming countryside spreads out beyond it.

Although there are other attractions in the area, your local beach of Rodiles is the main and obvious draw here.

Most people come a long way to to visit Rodiles beach. When you stay at the Cider House, you need only to trundle down the lane as far as the beach and park by a eucalyptus grove.

Rodiles is the first in our guide to the best beaches in Asturias (find link below). Its one kilometre of golden sand, flanked by cliffs and pine woods, is well-kept and popular with families and surfers. From 21 June to 20 September, there’s a lifeguard. There’s a boardwalk, beach showers, and cheap parking.

Similarly convenient for Cottage AT28 are a local shop with a butcher’s counter and restaurants, 1 km from the cottage: walking distance, really.

At 15 minutes, you have Villaviciosa, a large town with all shopping and other facilities such as internet.

At 20 minutes you have seaside Lastres. This is the "Dinosaur Coast": children will love the chance to see fossilized dinosaur footprints set in rock right by La Griega beach at Lastres, and there’s a Jurassic Museum above the beach on the hills.

At 45 minutes, Arriondas is the top mountain spot for kayaking or rafting down the River Sella. In less than an hour you are at Cangas de Onis, the main hub for Picos de Europa.

Ben | August | 2022

We spent a wonderful week at the cider house. Peaceful and quiet with a wonderful garden for children to play in. A great base to explore beautiful Northern Spain. Rodiles beach is only a short drive away and is glorious. Thank you Elena!"

Emma | July | 2022

The property was lovely and is in a beautiful location. There were quite a few child hazards (E.g open staircase) which should be highlighted in the property listing. The house is also quite damp and there were no outdoor table and chairs as in the listing photos."

Malcolm | June | 2022

Aesthetically, the property is lovely having been tastefully restored and stylishly furnished throughout, practically however, we had a number of issues which were entirely avoidable had the owner carried out some general maintenance, allow me to elaborate... It was an unseasonably cold ten days while we were there, Elena (the host) warned us what we were in for when we arrived. Despite the temperatures being significantly lower than they were back in the UK, the heating in the property did not come on once, we found out later that the heating was “in Summer Mode” which effectively meant it was turned off. Deprived of this, I tried to light the ‘Biofuel Heater’ in the large room and, after getting it to start it went into alarm (poor combustion or some such thing). My background is in engineering so, after some investigation on the web I carried out some general maintenance on the unit. Essentially I gave it a good old clean out as it was choked with compact ash and filthy inside. Once the work was complete, I refilled the heater with fuel, and it came on however it proved to be only temporary respite as the fuel is specialist in nature and there was a very limited supply. This led nicely onto the next issue, an electrical fault. The towels in the bathroom were simply not drying due to the low temperatures (exacerbated by a lack of heating) and I noticed they were hung on an electric towel rail which for some reason was unplugged (I soon found out why). So, I plugged it in and the entire place was plunged into darkness! Once again I got into work mode and eventually located the fuse board in the other bathroom (what could possibly go wrong?) and reset the RCD restoring power. We had further issues with the electrics, apparently our maximum power was very limited (to save money) so having the oven, hob and trying to boil the kettle at the same time, you guessed it, plunged the place into darkness once again and a reset in the fuse box was required to restore power... On an evening we had visitors in the attic (mice), one could hear them scuttling about. It did not take too long for them to find their way inside (there are numerous access points) and we had a small furry visitor to contend with. After a couple of days (and a number of failed attempts) I managed to catch out interloper and released him into the garden. I accept that staying in the country one will (on occasion) encounter rodents but these were here when we arrived, waiting to make our acquaintance... Water next. In the bathroom (with the fuse box) the drain from the shower blocked, I had a look to see if I could clear the blockage but to no avail, I could not trace the pipework so we simply stopped using that room, water and electricity are not the best of bedfellows so probably a wise move... Last but not least the ‘Master Bedroom’ was infested with biting insects (Bed-Bugs) and both my wife and I were badly bitten. We evacuated from the room and sealed it as best we could to try and prevent them from spreading, it was our first encounter with such things and a far from pleasant experience I can assure you. We informed our host on our departure of the above issues. Our reason for not contacting them during our stay was not wanting to have our first holiday abroad in three years disturbed by countless tradesmen coming to repair the numerous faults we encountered. Our thinking was that it would give the owners a chance to rectify the faults prior to the next guests arriving, we also informed ‘Rustical Travel' of events. I have to say that all of the representatives from ‘Rustical Travel’ conducted themselves in a most professional manner throughout, I would have no issues booking alternate accommodation with them in the future. Unfortunately, the owners response was less professional in a variety of ways. They simply denied that a number of the issues existed, were disingenuous regarding maintenance and refused to accept any liability for the issues we had encountered. Some of the problems were corrected (at Rustical Travel's insistence) but others, simply ignored... I get the impression that we were the first guests 'The Cider House' had seen in some time and the owners had simply not taken the time to prepare the place properly before we arrived. With a bit of effort on their part our break would have been immeasurably improved. As it was, we had a wonderful time in Asturias, the area is stunning and the people very friendly, this unfortunately was despite, not because of the quality of the property. Rural Spain is definitely somewhere that we will return to at some point in the future. Regarding ‘The Cider House’, I will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whether you choose to stay here..."

El lugar es ideal pero necesita una puesta a punto de mantenimiento y limpieza.La dueña muy amable y educada.. Nos dejó una única tiall de ducha y otra de lavabo para toda la semana y un único mantel de mesa de comedor. No pedimos más pero lo veo insuficiente. Vajilla y utensilios en buen estado y limpios"

Tras conversación con el proveedor del servicio a partir de 2022 de manera opcional se puede solicitar servicio adicional de lavado de ropa y toallas así como limpieza general de la casa (a pagar localmente).

Lucy | July | 2016

The Cider House was just lovely, as was the owner Elena. The property is clearly a much loved home so comes extremely well equipped; surf boards in the outbuilding, deck chairs etc, plenty of crockery and cooking equipment. It was exactly as described too, quiet and peaceful with 2 fantastic restaurants in Selorio within walking distance, recommended by Elena. Rodilles beach, 5 minutes by car, was stunning .. a 'Cornish' style expansive of white sand and surf, just wonderful. We would highly recommended this property to others and Rustical Travel, particularly the travel directions with photos that were excellent. Many thanks, Lucy Phillips"

Helen | June | 2016

We like independent holidays, exploring and living in the local community. The Cider House was perfect. It is well-situated, close to major roads for driving out to some fabulous beaches and towns. Though when sat in the back garden - which was something between a field and an orchard and wonderfully sunny, you would never know you were so close to roads. Roads in Asturias are very good, very quiet and very easy to drive. This property is a short drive from El Beron, from where you can get a Feve or Renfvtrain to just about anywhere in this exquisite region - only limitation is the time you have, but you can go as far as you like. Asturias is the land that time forgot; it is unhurried, heart-stoppingly stunning landscape, lovely warm and welcoming people who do not speak English, but who welcome you all the same. In the restaurants under the trees in nearby Solerou, we had a fabulous evening with the locals, who were keen to teach us how to drink the regional tipple - sidra - in the traditional way. And The Cider House itself... Rustic but elegant at the same time. Extremely comfortable, lovely furnishings, wonderful decor, lighting and architectural touches. A delight to spend time in. We are missing starting our day our on the patio, just gazing into those hills, across to the apple orchards while listening to the surround sound birdsong and watching a whole host of different birds bimbling about our 'garden', looking for food. One of the best holidays we've had.

Maria | July | 2015

We had a fabulous holiday. The Cider House is a charming old Spanish house full of character and lots of indoor and outdoor space. It is ideal if you like surfing as it is just a few minutes’ drive from Rodiles beach (which had good surf for most of the 2 weeks we were there). There are a couple of small shops and two restaurants within walking distance. It is easy to buy everything you need including fresh bread. The food in the closest restaurant was fab but be prepared to eat late (9 pm). It was easy to get to the motorway to explore further afield"

Mark | August | 2014

The house was in a lovely peaceful location and felt like a typical rustic Spanish house with lots of space. The kids liked the garden space when we were not out exploring or at the beach. The house was well equiped for a family holiday. The weather was a little uncertain and we struggled to operate the heating, a wood burner stove would be a welcome addition"

Rustical Update

It is very rare that heating is required in summer in this area, as it is usually warm or hottish; there is currently no wood burner at this property.
