PICOS DE EUROPA, 20 minutes from Cangas de ONIS, in the natural park. Parque de Ponga and Picos de Europa.
Calm and remote hide with great views to the mountains, in a very natural location.
Please, don´t rise your expectations too high. We don´t provide luxury.
This is a little stone house, recently refurbished and restored quite well, and good quality materials.
On the ground floor there is one space with fully equiped kitchen and sitting-room. Wooden stairs to the upper floor, with a mansard room and a bathroom.
There is a street running on the village. I explain: this is a very tiny village, in a valley in the mountains.
There is a road that passby. There are a few house by the road and the rest is nearby. Acces into the village by car, but not to the house. Parking is 40 meters from the house, allthough is posible to temporary get closer with the car to a few meters.
The house is in a kind of cul the sack, so there is not much people moving around. Although the next neighbour is 20 meters distance
Interaction with guests
We are available on the phone, and if you need to, we are 1,5 kms away.
We´ll like to welcome our guest with the Asturias hospitality.
We do not have wifi.
Nearest shop in Cangas de Onís.
We do not have coffee or tea. If you arrive late, bear in mind there are no shops nearby- please allow for your breakfast in the morning.
There is a bakery in the nearby village of Santillan (800 meters)with recent bread baked in the morning
We expressly ask you to CALL 2 DAYS BEFORE reaching Asturias, to be waiting for you when you arrive AND have a smoth arrival. GPS directions are NOT always good, and we strongly advise to follow our written directions that we send by email..
Calling may incurre in some expenses if you use international call. SMS is cheaper in that cases.
We prefer WHATSUP. It is quick and can send more information.
We made an app for Android, in spanish, great to know where to go. LOOK for Axtur.
If you use airbnb while arriving, you will need data access. You even may find out you don´t have good phone signal.
I am always AVAILABLE ON THE PHONE for whatever you need.
The HOUSE-KEEPER lives 30 meters up the road in a green house. You can go and see her for the keys. She does NOT speak english, so the explanations on the spot will be only in Spanish, but anyway is not difficult to know how the things work. Please, be comprensive, and do NOT Evalue us low in communication because of that.
IN THE HOUSE:
There is a INduccion kitchen, with 2 fires. You need to put the pans over it WITH water or whatever content to heat.
The JACUZZI is for 2 people. You need to FILL it first over the middle holes in order to make it work.
There is no Air Condicioning in the house, as it is not necesary on this place. We have a heating machine instead.
There are NO GAS apliances in the house.
Here are our HOUSE RULES. We put lots of love and attention into making this space to share with you. Thank you for treating our Cottage with the same care and respect you would expect from visitors in your own home.
*Check-in time is after 17:00, and check-out time is before 12:00.
Please be mindful of these times, as the cleaning staff is usually on a very tight schedule. Thanks!
*We allow pets at a charge for each pet. Please be prepared with cash for the pet fee if applicable.
*Smoking is only permitted outside. Please dispose of cigarette butts.
*If you wish to enjoy the fire bowl, please avoid lighting a fire in high winds, burn only wood, and make sure the fire is out before turning in for the night.
We're happy to provide firewood, but keep in mind that chopping wood is hard work and we ask that you use a reasonable amount so that our supply is available to future guests as well.
*The water here is perfectly safe for drinking. No need for environmentally unfriendly plastic water bottles!
*This house has a septic system. PLEASE BE GENTLE. Do not flush any feminine products or non-degradable items down the toilet and dispose of kitchen grease in the trash when cool.
Other things to note
Mobile signal is no good. Only with Orange is ok in the house. For the others you may need to move outside to catch.
The location is very quite and pleasant.
Breathtaking views from a gorgeous little town in the mountains called Cazo.
Heading towards South, is warm and confortable , to seat reading inside or outside.
Expect noises as birds in morning /afternoon, some cows or sheeps in the distances and a peculiar sound of this area which are the cowbells of some animals from the mountain in front.
Outside of the house is posible to seat to read peacefully overlooking the landscape.
Soy un enamorado de ASTURIAS, y de los PICOS DE EUROPA.
He buscado varias casitas o cabañas en diferentes LUGARES ESCOGIDOS y los hemos DECORADO especialmente.
Son ACOGEDORAS, románticas, PRACTICAS y auténticas.
Ideales para DESCANSAR, relajarse y DISFRUTAR de nuestras montañas, GASTRONOMIA, y nuestras gentes.
Nota: Nuestras casas Axtur están en las montañas. NO HAY TIENDAS en las proximidades, por lo que debes de traer COMIDA para la primera noche. Por motivos varios NO dejamos comida en las casas: no hay sal o aceite, ni café o té.
Por estar en las montañas, el ACCESO es por carreteras pequeñas y con curvas ( algo muy común en Asturias). Son CARRETERAS con poco tráfico, pero hay que ir despacio. El PAISAJE antes de la llegada suele ser extraordinario, con naturaleza a raudales.
Durante el mes de AGOSTO hay gente en todas partes, con más tráfico rodado y más incomodidades. ¡VEN fuera de TEMPORADA! ¡Esto es bueno para tí y para mí!
Dinamic, with interest in nature and service. Proudly promotes AsturiasActiva Owners Asociation. Do not hesitate to call for any questions.
Animall favorito: perro.
Lugar favorito: VALLE de Angón, DESFILADERO del Sella, BOSQUE de Peloño, PEÑA Santa.
película favorita: 8 apellidos vascos
pasión: caminar con mi mujer y mis hijos.
OBJETIVO, conseguir que nuestros clientes nos encuentren, se sientan como en casa y repitan.
Valoro muy positivamente que nuestros invitados nos hagan SUGERENCIAS POSITIVAS para mejorar, tanto en airbnb como en nuestra página web.
Siempre es agradable una palabra amable de apoyo.
Ultimamente estoy dejando por escrito lo que conozco en una pequeña GUíA de los Picos de Europa y de Asturias: asturias.axtur
He hecho un mapa turístico en papel para nuestros clientes, y una App para descargar en el MOVIL, con nuestras mejores recomendaciones.
Ah!. se me olvidaba: NO tenemos WIFI, y la COBERTURA con móvil en toda la zona de montaña es deficiente, variando ampliamente según el lugar.
We prefer communication by email or whatsup, rather than the initial contact with the Airbnb platform. Reason: we found it more practical for us and our guest.
Also we require to be in contact 2 DAYS BEFORE ARRIVAL. Reason: we are located out of the beaten path,( out of the way) with no good phone conections, and windy roads, often out of the GPS.
