Victoria was very welcoming and friendly, even though we spoke no Spanish, and she no English, and an excellent cook. The house has a wonderful terrace with lovely views down the valley. It is very peaceful and was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was fine but some people may be surprised that there is not a dishwasher - but not a problem for us. Access along the coast was easier than we had anticipated using the motorway. P Taylor


Set in a small hamlet 15 minutes from the coast, El Madreñeru is a villa with beautiful views set in a verdant valley inland from Villaviciosa.

El Madreñeru is so-called because it belonged to a person who made 'madreñas', the traditional wooden clogs worn by Asturians outside. The equipment he used is still under the grainhouse next to the house. The house is very peaceful and private. There are uninterrupted views of the sweeping valley from all the rooms in the house and from the garden.

On the ground floor there's a small but well-equipped kitchen/living area with a low breakfast bar for mealtimes. There is also a wonderful covered porch with table and chairs at the front of the house. All three bedrooms are spacious and have great views across the valley. The two bedrooms upstairs have en suite shower rooms and balconies. There is a large garden at the front of the house complete with children's play area and fruit trees.

There are deliveries to the village every day: bread, frozen foods, fruit, fish, etc. There are several good beaches within 15-30 minutes from the house and the historic market town of Villaviciosa is 20 minutes away. Gijon and Oviedo are about 30 minutes' drive.

Victoria, the owner, lives in the property behind the house and is an exceptional cook who can offer fantastic homemade breakfasts brought to your house - it includes homemade bread, sponge cakes, jams, cheeses, etc. for 5 euros per person. She can also offer homemade meals in the evenings at the weekend.

This property has been awarded 3 "trisqueles", the highest rating assigned by the regional tourist board. An extra bed can be placed in one of the bedrooms for an additional £8 per night.
