In the picturesque and typically-Asturian village of Espinaredo, Casa Chila is the perfect way to sample Asturian village life and enjoy beautiful mountain scenery.
The village of Espinaredo, set up in the hills, is famed for having more "horreos" (traditional Asturian grain houses) than any other village in Asturias, some of them dating back to the 17th century. It's also known for the friendliness of its inhabitants. This area of Asturias, called Piloña, is a great location for enjoying fantastic scenery without the crowds that can be found in some parts of the Picos de Europa but the Picos are still only a 30-minute drive away.
The property is a restored house that sits in the heart of the village. The ground floor is open-plan and includes a well-equipped kitchen and large wood-burning fireplace. Upstairs on the first floor, the first bedroom has a balcony that faces a group of "horreos" - the room itself contains some beautiful hand-carved chestnut furniture. The second bedroom is on the second floor and has lovely views over the village.
Espinaredo has two recreational forests nearby with picnic and barbecuing areas down by the river. There are numerous walking and cycling routes that begin from there too. Arriondas is about 25 km away and lies on the Sella river, great for canoeing, while the coast at Ribadesella is about 40 km away.
A bar in the village offers basic provisions and simple meals, while there's a larger restaurant just outside the village. A baker visits the village every day, and a butcher and fishmonger twice a week. More shops and supermarkets can be found in the town of Infiesto, 6 km away.
