About the property

5 beedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 10.

Mid-18th century stone house located on a breathtaking cliff and 80 meters away from the beach, recently top-level fully restored to offer the best sensations to its dwellers: solid oak wood was used in its interior (floors and beams) excepting for tiled floors brought directly from Casablanca used in some areas in the house. Its 30 windows and balcony are made of solid iroko wood. Each and every unit of the house has at least one window facing the sea or the nearby mountain and 3 picture windows were built directly into the sea. There's both a steam and infrared sauna and the property includes a 2nd smaller guest house (included in the rent). Weekly house servicing and beach towels included.

This property is situated in a quiet and nature sorrounded 3-property cul-de-sac above Arnao beach (Castrillon municipality) and 7 kms from Asturias airport with no plane acoustic disturbance though.The city of Aviles is 7 kms away and it takes half an hour to drive either to Oviedo or Gijon. The beach is just downstairs.

COMMITMENT: We are 100% committed to offer a top 5-star hotel like cleaning service: after each guest or group of guests leaves everything is thoroughly washed: every pillow case, every blanket, every duvet, every mattress cover, etc. The same perfectionism applies to the cleaning service of bathrooms, kitchen, sauna room and the rest of the rooms. If a client is not fully satisfied he or she is totally entitled to a very quick response. Also after each stay paintwork is checked and corrected when necessary.

PROPERTY DISTRIBUTION. Main house: first floor, loft (living&dining); detached kitchen; galery and toilet. Ground floor: master bedroom (150-cm wide bed) with full bathroom; 1 bedroom with 2 single 90 cm-wide beds; 1 bedroom with 2 80 cm-wide beds plus another full bathroom. Guest house: bedroom (135-cm wide bed); full bathroom and a small livingroom with 2 single sofabeds (190 x 80). Sauna house: sauna cabin; shower and washing machine.

NORTHERN FOOTPATH: We would highlight Arnao-Santa Maria del Mar coastal footpath -also for bikes and horses- as being one the most beautiful in Asturias. Bayas beach -a particularly beautiful pristine beach and the longest in Asturias- is only a few minutes away.

SURFERS: Arnao beach -downstairs from the house- is a quite good surfing spot. Salinas, a mile away, is a well-known surf town.

For any other possible activity in Asturias please contact directly with the owner.

The property is not wheel chair-accesible. People with disabilities please ask.

People with children: free baby-cot available; kid-proof mattresses covers available; a safety gate is placed on top of the stairs and 3 windows blocked. The whole property is enclosed by a wall and a fence.

Stupenda casa. E' la terza volta che torniamo.

  • 5 of 5

Stupenda casa. E' la terza volta che veniamo la prima in agosto di cinque anni fa, la seconda in settembre dell'anno scorso ed ora in gennaio. Ci siamo trovati sempre benissimo. La casa e' bella, comoda, confortevole e sta in una posizione stupenda. Offre infinite possibilita' di svago(spiaggia, passeggiate, montagne, citta', ecc.)Il propietario e' una persona molto gentile che ci ha fornito una infinita' di indicazioni su localita', itinerari, ristoranti, ecc.. Anche la nostra cagnolina ha apprezzato molto la permanenza.

Pasamos 6 personas unos días de este mes de enero en esta casa con una situación excepcional justo encima del mar. Las vistas, maravillosas, son las esperadas por las fotos y los diferentes comentarios que se pueden leer en esta web. Sin embargo, lo que más nos llamó la atención es la increíble limpieza que reina en la casa, en cada habitación con camas en las que dormir es un gustazo, en los cuartos de baño y en la cocina, con todos los cacharros, platos, vasos y cubiertos en un estado perfecto. Normalmente, cuando vamos a una casa siempre los lavamos antes de usarlo. En esta propiedad no hizo falta. ¡Nunca hemos visto nada más limpio!

Wonderful house! Lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in June 2016 with my brothers and our partners. We had a lovely time, and the house was perfect for us. Very clean, and very cool. The upstairs is a large open plan living area and it was perfect for sitting around together and eating/drinking/socialising. There's a nice little garden too in which we could sit, eat, and take in the view. Julio was lovely and made sure there was breakfast for us on arrival.

The house is right on a coastal path that gives easy access to endless walks along the beautiful Asturian coastline, with many beaches, opportunities for swimming and surfing.

We found that the house was perfectly located for taking in the range of wonderful things Asturias has to offer. Oviedo was about a 30 minutes drive. The furthest drive was to the Picos de Europa to walk the Ruta del Cares but this was well worth the drive.

Other than that, I forget the name but the restaurant closest to the house does excellent food.

I would whole-heartedly recommend this property to anyone, and would love to return in the future.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Mr. Rojo’s home for a week in February. Our daughter was attending The Universidad de Oviedo for a semester and we traveled to Spain to see her. We were looking for a place near Oviedo but out of the city. This home was perfect!

Julio and Carmen made us feel very comfortable traveling to Spain even though we do not know Spanish. They provided a lot of information and recommendations for shopping, eating and activities. Julio and Carmen were always available to answer questions and provide recommendations.

As we flew into Asturias, we were amazed at the beauty of the coast line. When we arrived at the home we could not believe how amazing the location was. From the living room we would watch huge waves roll in and crash onto the rocky coast. We also enjoyed watching the ships arriving and leaving the port in Aviles. Almost every day we would hike from the house the coast, along the high cliffs and down to the beaches.

From the home we were a 30 minute drive from visiting our daughter in Oviedo where we spent time touring the old city. We also took a short day trip to hike in Picos de Europa starting in Poncebos. It is impossible to describe how incredible this hike was. We were very close to Piedras Blancas and Salinas where we frequented the cafes and restaurants that Julio had recommended. We also enjoyed multiple trips to the Philippe Cousteau Anchor Museum (a very short drive) where we watched the waves crashing on the rocks and surfers riding waves in to the beach.

As we left the home at the end of our vacation, we could not believe how fortunate we were to have stayed at Mr. Rojo’s home. We would highly recommend a vacation at this home.
