Casa Ordiales is located in the peaceful rural hamlet of La Madalena with stunning views towards the mountains of the Redes Natural Park. The garden is South facing ideal for sunbathing, eating 'al fresco' and generally relaxing.
This property is a comfortable detached cottage is well placed for exploring the mountains of the Redes Natural Park, surrounding traditional villages, the Costa Verde and Oviedo. Day trips can be made to the Picos de Europa. The road up to the property is steep but with a good tarmac surface. There is parking behind the house.
The cottage Casa Ordiales, is a delightful rural property perfectly positioned for exploring Asturias. The ground floor has a spacious kitchen/dining area, a modern wood-burning stove and large shuttered windows that look directly into the garden. There is a lovely orange tree right opposite the front door.
The town amenities of El Entrego include, bars, restaurants, shops, cinemas, theatre, leisure centre, and it is well served with trains and buses. The spectacular rugged coastline of Asturias's Costa Verde reminiscent of Cornwall or the West coast of Scotland has sandy beaches, spectacular cliffs, secluded coves, small fishing villages and excellent seafood restaurants. Villaviciosa's Rodilles beach a popular surfing venue, is 45mins drive from the house.
This beautiful and timeless area has more recently started to attract a more discerning holiday maker looking for a Spanish alternative to the busy and expensive Southern Costas, the Spanish themselves have been keeping it a well guarded secret! Many people visiting the area are choosing to buy houses here as the prices are very reasonable, the area very quiet and unspoiled with local government encouraging ecologically sound tourist developments.
Three couples staying at Casa Ordiales in the past year have subsequently bought properties in Asturias.
I'm a photographic guide and I am based in Iceland. We bought this house for our own holidays and go there as much as possible to relax in the beautiful nature of Asturias.
Ms Geraldine Westrupp purchased this cottage in 2005
This is a genuine home with a proper garden which is both private and pretty. There is a lovely orange tree right by the front door. All the windows are large and South facing, waking up to a stunning view accross forested hills and distant peaks is the best for us. When it is cooler we like nothing better than to curl up with a good book in front of the wood burning stove or to work on our images of Asturias.
Privately rural yet 10 minutes drive to the nearest town with full amenities, private parking for two cars. Just half an hour to the coast and 15 minutes to the Redes Natural Park.
Casa Ordiales is set in a beautiful rural location overlooking forrested hillsides and valleys. We were just 2 people but the house would comfortably sleep 6. We especially enjoyed the log burning stove in the kitchen, the private garden and the friendliness of the neighbours. It was nice to hear the owls calling in the night. The local town is not especially touristy or pretty but has all ammenities including restaurants and supermarkets. The beautiful Redes natural park was about a half hour drive and we went for some lovely picturesque walks. it is nice to wander around the village too. The coast with some good beaches is around 40 minutes drive.
We really enjoyed our holiday here in September 2010. This was our first visit to the area and this was a great base to explore from. This is not really a seaside place although we were able to get to the Costa Verde beaches in 35-40 minutes. The local area and mountains wre The views from the house were gorgeous and we spent a lot of time in the garden chilling. The kids were really welcomed by locals, the prices in the small local resturants were really ammenable and you just have to try Fabada the local bean and chorizo stew. The kitchen was particularly great to hang out in and we appreciated the dry food stocks that were there for emergencies. Geraldine the owner was really helpful and there was loads of info about the area available in the house. Also an eclectic mix of DVD´s.
We stayed at Casa Ordiales with 4 adults, 2 children and an infant. The owners were very helpful with supplying a cot. This house is in a very small rural village so felt "authentic" Spanish. The locals were friendly and even though we spoke little Spanish, they were happy to chat. The house was a good base for trips to Oviedo, Gijon, Villaviciosa and to Redes National Park. The rooms were fine, having a dishwasher was handy. The backyard was great in summer, we ate meals in the sun and enjoyed the fantastic views across the valley. Nearby El Entrego has a really well stocked hypermarket so there was no trouble getting supplies.
Nous sommes venus avec nos enfants (jeunes adultes) pendant 15 jours, nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette maison confortable et calme. Nous qui aimons bien cuisiner la pièce principale était sympa, bien équipée (cuisinière 4 feux, lave-vaisselle...). 2 petits salons pour nos soirées à chercher les randonnées du lendemain bcp de documentations et cartes laissés par la propriétaire, la terrasse et le jardin étaient chouettes. Sous l'oranger avec une belle vue sur les collines nous y avons pris de nombreux repas et les oranges étaient excellentes!!! Pour les courses El Entrego à 5mn en voiture (galerie commerciale, boulangerie...). Le village se situe dans les hauteurs avec les coqs qui chantent!!!, le soleil était présent mais pas de chaleur étouffante. Nous avions un petit parking pour garer nos 2 voitures juste derrière la maison. Seul bémol la WIFI ne marchait pas mais dans la ville avons trouvé un cyber café. Beaucoup de choses à voir sans aller très loin, les Asturies c'était super la mer, la montagne, toutes ses bonnes spécialités et son cidre!!!! Merci à Géraldine (que nous n'avons pas rencontré) car nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans votre maison très sympa.
Casa Ordiales is surrounded by its own private garden. Ideal for secluded relaxing. For those needing to keep in touch there is a good mobile signal and wifi. The local village is pretty although the nearest shops are in the local town of El Entrego just a five minutes drive.
The Redes Natural Park is nearby with its pretty, distinctive villages, beautiful forests, tumbling streams, attractive villages, well marked trails, high alpine meadows and imposing limestone mountains. The way of life here is steeped in culture. The area is perfect for all manner of activities including fly fishing on the Nalon River, walking on well marked trails, rock climbing, mountaineering, pony trekking, caving, mountain biking, or gentle picnicking!
The coast of the Costa Verde is famous for wild unspoiled beaches. Some of the nicest are around 40 minutes drive away.
World class rock climbing venues of Quiros and Terverga are a fifty minute drive, with several sports climbing areas of all grades spread around the area. In the Valles del Trubia is the famous Senda del Osos, the walk of the bears, a 22kl flat,marked trail though easy but spectacular scenery. There is also some lovely walking straight from the house with no need to drive. The road to the property is steep and narrow.
