ROMANTIC SECLUDED ONE BEDROOM HIDEAWAY FOR COUPLES, STUNNING OCEAN VIEWS

Eo-Navia Comarca Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2.

If El Balcon is booked for the time you area interested in please take a look at La Cumbre #224154 and El Pajar #443221. We happily rent La Cumbre to couples for the same price as El Balcon except in July and August. La Cumbre works well for a couple and has fantastic views as well with lots of privacy and room. El Pajar is a lovely one bedroom cottage on the property and more economical, # 443221.

On a small organic farm above the Atlantic coast of Asturias El Balcon is a romantic cottage with fantastic views of the mountains and ocean. In quiet surroundings, a short walk up the hill, it enjoys a private setting amid pastures and forest. Beautifully restored it is a sunny cozy hideaway with a wood burning fireplace in the living room, a sun porch off the downstairs and a beautiful balcony adjoining the bedroom. Enjoy our peaceful setting or in just minutes find yourself choosing a beach or a restaurant. We are between the beautiful fishing ports of Cudillero and Luarca, both offering a variety of places to eat and shop. Asturias is perfect for walking and paths lead off the property to include the Camino de Santiago.

The Cottage: El Balcon has been completely restored and is now an attractive, comfortable holiday home for 2. The cottage is on two floors, furnished with a mix of antique and new pieces. Downstairs is the suntrap porch which leads into an open-plan living/dining room with a glass door wood burning fireplace and a sofa. The well-equipped corner kitchen is tiled and easy to work in with a full size refrigerator and a 4 burner cooker with oven. Upstairs the bedroom invites with its large queen-size bed, bathroom, spacious washbasin and sitting area. The large sunny balcony off the bedroom offers unending entertainment as you watch the weather change over the valley and ocean beyond. Not one but two lighthouses can be seen at night, Cabo Peñas and Cabo Vidio.

A short walk up from the rest of the farm El Balcon is just far enough removed to make it the ideal place for people who want to relax or even need a quiet spot to write and work.

The Farm: Because we are committed to and enjoy our organic lifestyle our linens are washed in natural soaps and sun dried. The house has features which save on energy and firewood is provided for your warmth. We encourage recycling and the chickens are the first step in the composting process. 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 encourage you to enjoy and explore the grounds. We enjoy sharing our enthusiasm for Asturias by helping with translations, reservations and tips on where to eat and what to see and do. There is a great deal of information in the house as well as in the 'Resource Center'. Asturias is full of pleasant surprises.

The Area : Walk the hills and coastline of Asturias from the house or in only 10 minutes by car you can be on the beach. There are many to choose from, quiet and secluded to those with all the amenities. Just 20 minutes away are the beautiful bustling fishing ports of Luarca and Cudillero where a wealth of local fish and seafood, as well as typical hearty Asturian dishes await. Go inland and have a look into the past where traditional lifestyles abound and revolve around cattle, both dairy and beef. 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 aquarium, the botanical gardens, cultural events, and shopping. Take the narrow gauge FEVE train instead of the car! We are in western Asturias and Somiedo Natural Park is not to be missed with its thatched mountain cottages and abundant wildlife.

This cottage is just as sweet as it is in the photos. What you don't see are the expansive views nor can you appreciate the peace and quiet. I love getting up in the morning to see pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago or deer grazing in the meadow. Lately I have seen two foxes playing on the ridge and a wild boar foraging through the grass in the same meadow. It is always a treat. Pepe loves the ocean view and I love the mountains so this is the perfect place to keep us both happy and busy.

IDYLLIC - PERFECT RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
El Balcon is the perfect place to de-stress. It has exceptional views of the hills down to the coast. It is far from any traffic noise, the only sounds the tinkling of cow bells and the humming of the bees. The cottage itself is absolutely charming and very comfortable, with a quaint upstairs balcony and a pleasant outside sitting or dining area. Comfortable deckchairs are provided for the relaxing reading which occupied much of our time, either in the shade of a tree, in the sunshine or on the terrace. There are lovely walks straight from the door, with spectacular views and the chance to stroll along part of the famous Camino pilgrim route. If you can drag yourself away from the relaxation of El Balcon, there are plenty of places to visit, including the seaside town of Cudillero and the beautiful Silencio beach. We also took the local train to the harbour town of Luarca. But mostly we were content to stay at El Balcon. Big thanks to Lynn and Pepe for a warm and friendly welcome and the chance to sample their home-grown produce and recycle our food to the chickens. If there were 6 stars we would give them!

KLEINES PARADIES :-)

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben zwei Wochen in dieser Oase der Ruhe fernab jeglicher Hektik verbracht. Das kleine Häuschen mit wunderbarem Blick auf das Meer hat alles, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub benötigt. Es ist liebevoll eingerichtet, so dass man sich von Anfang an wohl fühlt. Lynn und Pepe sind nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeber und die Landschaft in der Region ist atemberaubend schön. Wir kommen gerne wieder! :-)

LOVELY HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
After a friendly and enthusiastic welcome from Lynn Pepe and Lex, we settled into El Balcon. We found it to be as pretty as in the pictures, with fabulous views and total peace.
The only thing we could fault was the weather, as we were unfortunate to arrive during the bad weather being experienced by the whole of europe. Thank goodness for the lovely log fire and ample supply of logs, which turned El Balcon into a cosy romantic hideaway.
We also enjoyed Lynn's organic herbs ,eggs and vegetables as we both enjoy cooking and the kitchen along with the rest of the cottage is very well equipped.
It is a beautiful area, the coast is very rugged with beautiful coves, sandy beaches and during our visit fabulous crashing waves. We loved Aviles, Cudillero and Oviedo amongst others and would definitely recommend both El Balcon and the area.

DEFINITELY A 5 STAR!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at El Balcon at the end of April. It was wonderful. This little cottage has so much character and it is super cozy. It rained several days when we were there, but with a fire in the wood stove, a bottle of wine, and good books, it was amazing and very relaxing. I'll have to admit, when we first drove to El Balcon, it seemed way out in the country, and with the narrow, gravely road, I was wondering what we were getting into. But what a lovely surprise awaited us. And, after that, it was so easy to get back to after an outing. There are so many things to see within driving distance, it really turned out to be centrally located. I can't say enough about the hosts, Lynn and Pepe. They made us feel right at home and gave us so much information about the area. We parted friends. I totally recommend El Balcon without any hesitation.

PEACEFUL SECLUSION!

  • 5 of 5
Lynn and Pepe were wonderful hosts! Everything from the initial contact and deposit,to our last handshake upon leaving was just as promised! El Balcon is stunningly situated and obviously well cared for. Maps to local towns and beaches are provided as well as local market information. Our only regret was that the weather was too beautiful to need a fire in the fireplace.

Western Asturias is now opening up due in part to the new Cantabrican Motorway along the beautiful green Northern Coast. The locals are friendly and the food hearty and abundant. The protected coastline is unspoiled. The beaches along this rugged beautiful coast range from well-kept sandy beaches with lifeguards, snack bars and parking to deserted pebble and sandy beaches that are always well worth the effort it takes to get to them. Asturias is known for its surf and there are a number of surf schools and rental outfits that offer everything you might need to surf. The ocean temperatures range from 57F or 14C in the winter to 73F or 23C in the summer. Bracing but fun. Most of our guests spend a lot of time on the beach in the summer since the temperatures are always moderate, rarely hot. The mountains join the sea in Asturias and there are many natural parks and walking trails. Somiedo Natural Park is much closer than Picos de Europa, less visited and just as 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 which requires advance reservations. Caves with prehistoric art are open to visit April - Sept. We are happy to assist with reservations for Muniellos and the caves .

Notes:
A short walk up from the rest of the farm El Balcon is just far enough removed to make it the ideal place for people who want to relax or even need a quiet spot to write and work. You will feel you have truly escaped the maddening crowds. It is also a perfect setting for those with a small child or baby. No need to apologize to anyone when the baby cries. We have a high chair, baby cot and bedding available. Washing Machine: The Balcon shares two washing machines with two other cottages in the laundry facilites provided off the parking lot. Internet: WiFi Internet access. It is limited to emails and browsing the web. Due to download limitations it is not adequate for downloading films, videos & music. Face Talk, Hangouts, Skype work fine with voice only, video chats use up too many megas. Water: Our drinking water comes from a very deep, tested well and is excellent.
