Eo-Navia Comarca Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

La Cumbre is a pretty farmhouse lovingly restored by its owners (Spanish and American). It is found on a hillside organic farm above the Asturian coast in Western Asturias with spectacular views of the mountains in front, the valley below and the coast beyond. La Cumbre, true to its original nature and history, offers a rustic country setting complete with farm animals without neglecting any of the comforts of home. It is a quiet, rural location. While off the beaten path it is within minutes of beaches, villages and shopping. Walking trails lead off from the house to include the famous pilgrim route the 'Camino de Santiago', where you may enjoy more spectacular views of the Atlantic coast.

Couples! We offer special rates to couples outside July and August in La Cumbre and have smaller cottages available. Please see El Balcon #253751 and El Pajar #443221.

A welcome pack is included containing wine, coffee, teas, bread, milk, sugar and eggs (when our chickens cooperate).

The Farmhouse: This two-story house has an open plan downstairs living/dining room and complete well-equipped kitchen, big sunny windows, rustic tile floor, exposed stone walls, wooden ceiling and a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is beautifully tiled in blue and white with white marble counter tops and sink. The water comes from a deep well and tastes great, tested and approved. The house is nicely furnished with a mix of antiques and traditional Asturian pieces all working together to make for a comfortable stay. Upstairs is a complete bathroom with large bathtub/shower and four bedrooms. The bedrooms have the original chestnut floors, rugs, bedside tables, reading lamps, mirrors, chairs and plenty of storage space. The beds are one Queen, one Full and two Singles. One single room has a curtain door.

The Surroundings: Enjoy a day in the hammock, walk the hills or jump in the car and in only 10 minutes you can be on the beach. There are many to choose from, quiet and secluded to busy with all the amenities. In 20 minutes you can find yourself in the bustling fishing ports of Luarca and Cudillero where a wealth of local fish and seafood, as well as typical Asturian dishes await you. Just inland have a look into the past at the traditional lifestyles where life revolves around cows, both dairy and beef. Throughout the summer villages offer a 'fiesta' in honor of their patron saint with live bands, competitions, children's events and, of course, mass and a religious procession. Market days are not to be missed and arts and crafts shows are common in the summer. The cities of Aviles, Gijon and Oviedo are less than an hour away by car for nightlife, museums, the new aquarium, cultural events, and shopping. Take the narrow guage FEVE train instead of the car! Asturias is known for its natural beauty.

The Farm: Because we enjoy our organic lifestyle our linens are washed in natural soaps and sun dried. The house has features which save on energy and we encourage recycling. The chickens are the first step in the composting process and are fun to feed. We do not own a tractor or heavy farm machinery therefore the place is doubly safe for children since there is no traffic. Organic dry food items are available for purchase, herbs and flowers free for the picking and we are always happy to share the seasonal abundance of the garden.

We are enthusiastic about Asturias and are happy to help with translations, reservations and tips on where to eat and what to see. There is a great deal of information in the house as well as in the 'Resource Center'. Natural Parks, special beaches, woodland trails, surprising wildlife; Asturias is full of pleasant and unexpected surprises.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We offer a discount for couples who want just a little more space than in our smaller cottages in a beautiful home with all the views our hillside offers, ocean and mountains. Quiet and private this house is lovely. For a couple the nightly rate is between 75-80 Euros/Night excluding July & August.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We instantly felt at home in this lovingly restored farmhouse and its surrounds. I would recommend La Cumbre to couples of any age, families with kids, singles looking to spoil themselves – anyone who dreams of a rural retreat. The house is sunny, spotless and very well-equipped. The bedrooms are large with just-right touches; the kitchen, bath and living room equally charming and full of everything you could possibly need plus some. There is no artifice, just well-thought out comfort and ease. With three other rental properties on the farm, La Cumbre retains privacy although we enjoyed camaraderie with the other guests. Did I mention the gorgeous views? The farm, Pico Los Rozos, sits atop a hill and invites exploration, bringing hours of delight to adults and kids alike. Breakfasting on fresh eggs and homemade bread on the patio overlooking the valley; walking the old trails with Lex the happiest dog on the planet; feeding the chickens and gathering herbs; delving into the Resource Center’s ample assortment of books, music, games and toys; savoring a glass of the local red as the sun sets across the mountains – you are surrounded at all times by utter peace and incomparable natural beauty. Just down the hill are shops and cantinas, while unspoiled beaches and busy little towns are minutes away. Somewhere nearby, every day, is a farmers market for fresh vegetables, artesianal cheese, local meats and people-watching entertainment. The new motorway is so close you can make an easy daytrip to anywhere in Galicia or Asturias, and there is so much to see! Best of all are Lynn and Pepe, unobtrusive but always ready to provide recommendations (the house has a book-ful), directions, easy conversation and whatever you might need for your home away from home. From the first warm email to the welcome package of wine, bread, eggs and flowers, to the goodbye hugs, they are the most gracious and thoughtful of hosts and among the finest people we know. Living in the mountains has its realities: the driveway is exhilaratingly steep and sometimes the farm is enveloped in a cooling cloud. A city pied-a-terre La Cumbre is not. But if you want to awaken to the fragrance of meadow and woods, stretch out under sun-dried sheets and go to the window overlooking a green tapestry tumbling to the ocean, and ponder the day’s rich possibilities to the sound of distant cowbells – go to La Cumbre. I know we’ll be back.

Lovely hillside cottage, but near the beach

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a fantastic stay. We've never been to Asturias before, but would strongly recommend it as a holiday destination, especially now the new motorway means that its very quick and easy to travel from the house (just a few km from the nearest junction) to virtually anywhere in Asturias. For beach lovers, the nearest (San Pedro) sandy beach is directly down the hill (about 15 mins in the car), but its perfectly easy to travel quickly to different beaches - we travelled to about 6 or 7 different beaches during our two week stay. We also explored the stunning local fishing villages such as Cudillero and Luarca, the old centres of Oviedo and Gijon, and the beautiful Somiedo national park.

The house itself is up a steep driveway, with spectacular views over the opposite hillside and down to the sea with lovely walks and runs right from the front door. It is immaculate, well furnished and equipped - we wanted for nothing during our stay - and the resource room kept us occupied in books, DVDs and beach equipment.

We were made very welcome by Lynn, who was helpful right from the first email, and when we arrived with suggestions on places to visit, local festivals etc. In short - highly recommended!

Great Four Season House in Asturian Hills

  • 5 of 5
We have rented houses from owners in Europe for fifteen years, and this is our favorite of them all! From our first contact with Lynn, months before our arrival, through our return home, she has been gracious and helpful. We now consider Lyn and Pepe personal friends. Their advice and tips were always helpful and ensured that our two weeks were a perfect mix of interesting trips and relaxed downtime.

High in the hills above the sea, the house has spectacular views over quiet valleys. Sitting at the edge of the bluff in front of the house listening to the "silence" will be a lasting memory. The house is immaculate and well maintained. The kitchen is the best equipped we've seen (including a wok and immersion blender!). The living room is spacious and was welcoming on cold nights, thanks to the wood stove. Bedrooms are good sized, and the bathroom has a tankless hot water system, so there is no running out. (Electricity and gas are not metered by the owners, but guests should conserve these expensive resources).

We enjoyed Orviedo, with its cathedral, indoor food market and siderias. Our favorite nearby town is Luarca and we had very good meals at the Sport Bar, once in the dining room and, even more fun, in the bar area where we shared tapas with friendly locals. (Don't miss the goose neck barnacles!). Near the church is a small store selling costume jewelry made by the owner, whose daughter is most friendly. Many of our gifts for family were purchased there, including unique jeweled scarf clasps and bracelets. In Soto Luna, there is a fine bar cafe near the lighthouse with perfectly prepared fish, and the green hotel in Soto Luna is a cut above, blending local fare with more continental preparation. One note: the menu del dia is always the least expensive option, but these offer a LOT of food, usually starting with a very filling bean stew with sausage and pork. We found that for a few extra Euros we could share an excellent salad and order a single course off the menu which always was excellent, as is the house wine

We spent two wonderful weeks and did not exhaust all the interesting options in the area. This area is free of the large beachfront high rises which unfortunately plague much of southern Europe and is farm country with friendly and welcoming folks. We recommend this to folks wanting to decompress while visiting a unique area which is rich in culture and cuisine.

Thanks to Lynn, Pepe (and Lex)!

A great week in Austurias!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and another couple, rented La Cumbre for a week this fall, and had an absolutely fabulous time here. As the other reviewers have mentioned, it gives one the feeling of being all alone on the hill top, while still be only 10 minutes from towns and beaches. The views are spectacular!!! The house is very well equipped and cozy, with a nice fire to keep you warm if it gets cool. Lynn and Pepe are great hosts, taking the time to tell you about the area and about their property and making you feel like one of the family. Lynn and Lex even accompanied us on the first leg of our lonnnnng walk, making sure we were on the right track. Fresh eggs can be bought and fresh bread bought and delivered to your door!!
We walked the Camino right from our door...right down to the beach and back...a challenging but excellent hike. We visited Taramundi one day to see the knife museum and the old mills and had the Menu del dia at a local restaurant...one of our favourite days.
Many nights we cooked right at the house, enjoying the view and the peace and quiet.
Thanks so much, Lynn, for helping make our stay so memorable.

The Best Ever

  • 5 of 5
Our 3-week vacation at La Cumbre with Lynn, Pepe, Lex et al was our best vacation ever. Having enjoyed extended stays in virtually every European country as well as in many Asian and Latin American locations over the past 50 years we found our time in this little bit of paradise the most rewarding of all. Every rave review of the place and its owners, every superlative is completely justified: "...the house and location are brilliant....the closest thing to perfection we can imagine....for young or old, active or passive....perfect for a quiet break or a more adventurous holiday....(an) idyllic place....I cannot recommend this farm house enough...(it) exceeded our expectations." For exquistely beautiful countryside, utter tranquility, absolute comfort and the most intelligent, thoughtful, warm and friendly hosts, this place is in a class by itself.

Our second visit

  • 5 of 5
Back to the farm where we spent such a wonderful time last year.

The farmhouse is very large and a bit decadent for just the 2 of us - but why not.

Had such a lovely time - the house and the location are brilliant - and enhanced by the company of Lex - our temporary pet dog.

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
A lovely farmhouse in an idealic location with great views of the mountains. We travelled with our 3 young children and had a lovely time. The children loved the farm and Lex (couldn't wait to take him for a walk every morning). Lynn and Pepe were very welcoming and helpful. The villa was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. A great base to explore the area.

Western Asturias is a region opening up due to the new Cantabrican Motorway joining France with Portugal along the beautiful green Northern Coast. The locals are friendly and the food hearty and abundant. The protected coastline is unspoiled with many beaches varying in nature from sandy with all the amenities to rocky and secluded. The mountains join the sea in Asturias and there are many natural parks and walking trails. While Picos de Europa is a 3 hour drive from here, Somiedo Natural Park is closer, less visited and beautiful boasting Leonid Vultures and Brown Bears. Thatched mountain cottages add a magical effect to the landscape. Muniellos is a Biosphere Reserve with ancient oaks. Caves with prehistoric art are available to visit April - Sept. Reservations needed.
