An attractively restored house set amid stunning scenery, Casa Grande de Cabrales II is a comfortable holiday base close to the Picos de Europa.

Casa Grande de Cabrales II is in a peaceful spot located at the high end of Ortiguero de Cabrales, a quiet village on the way up to the Picos de Europa. The Picos are nearby and yet it is only a 20-minute drive down to the coast where there is a good selection of beaches and small coves.

The house has an open-plan living area with a wood-burning fireplace. Outside, the comfortable terrace has beautiful views across to the mountains. There's also a stone barbecue a few steps down from the terrace. All of the accommodation is on the ground floor, although there is an additional double bedroom upstairs with en suite shower room for which there is an additional cost if requested - see below.

The area of Cabrales is home to the Cares Gorge, one of the most famous walking routes in Asturias, as well as Cabrales cheese, one of the most famous cheeses in Spain! It's also a great area for trout and salmon fishing. Most notably, though, it is a good place from which to access the Picos de Europa – there are plenty of walking routes with varying degrees of difficulty.

The village has a couple of bars/restaurants and shops, and a small playground for children. Arenas, 6 km away, is an attractive old town with plenty of good restaurants. It's also a centre for adventure sports - canoeing, rafting, trekking, mountain biking, quads, etc.
