Park at the top, walk two minutes down through the typical Asturian hamlet (Marc and Olga will help with the luggage) to this beautifully designed stone barn in its wild and ancient mountain setting. Rebuilt in local style by Marc, an English architect, and Spanish wife Olga, it is all minimalist grey concrete and natural plaster inside with superb German windows, modern art on the walls, shelves loaded with books, soft lighting and an open hearth (masses of logs on hand); a talented mix of high-modern and trad-cosy. On the ground floor are the two bedrooms, one large, one smaller, and the perfect shower room. Up the generous open staircase is the living space with its impeccable modern kitchen (kitted out for home cooked meals), sitting/dining area and heart-stopping views (myriad stars at night). From the little terrace your eye flows out to those green hillsides and up to the mountains; this is, in effect, your wild and wonderful garden. Glorious hikes can be had from the front door but do start with the lovely walk up the valley of the river Casaño to the ancient lakes of Covadonga. Wonderful hospitality, wild nature; the perfect holiday retreat.
