exactly what I wanted.
Contained everything and more that we needed for a comfortable stay. The owners are a lovely couple who went out of their way to help with any queries before we left and also during our stay.
Clean, well maintained. Would definitely recommend.
We have just returned from a lovely break at this small but perfectly located studio. The owners are very friendly and from booking through to welcome and departure they couldn't have been more helpful. The studio is perfect for a couple and has great cooking facilities and a fantastic shower. The studio also has two outdoor eating areas one being sheltered. The location is perfect being a short walk to the harbour, beaches and local bars and restaurants. Luarca itself is a lovely little town with many great bars and restaurants to discover. We travelled with no car but found the local bus service easy to use. As keen walkers we also walked parts of the camino de Santiago which passes through Luarca. All in all this is the perfect location for a short break along this coast.
The apartment was just as described on the website. Although it was only a small space everything was extremely well planned - especially the kitchenette & wet room. The whole apartment was clean & well maintained. There were views of the harbour from the apartment & there was also a small outdoor area which again had views. We particularly liked the stable door arrangement which gave a range of opening options! As stated the apartment was a only minute's walk from the harbour with its bars & restaurants. The owners were extremely helpful & keen to make sure that we had everything that we needed.
We have just had a marvellous few days in this little studio in the centre of Luarca in Asturias. The studio is very small but has everything a couple may need. Top marks for the kitchenette and bathroom, both modern and comfortable. There is plenty of storage place for clothes etc and a nice little balcony weather permitting!
Luarca/Asturias is not for the fair weather walker and there is a steepish incline to the studio plus steps. There is no parking space in the immediate surroundings, however, we never had problems parking at the top of Luarca a short walk down to the studio. Luarca is so beautiful that any walking up and down the hills is always compensated by the stunning views. Peter the owner was very helpful and welcoming.
My husband and I recently stayed in this apartment for a week due to a visit to Luarca for our friends wedding. The apartment is in a great location, within easy walking distance to local bars, restaurants and shops. We enjoyed buying bread and pastries in the local bakeries and having them for breakfast on the terrace.
The apartment, while compact really does have everything you need for a week away and there has clearly been some thought gone in to what guests would find useful. It is very clean and modern inside. The sofa bed was of good quality and comfortable. We kept it folded in to a bed for our whole stay as the weather allowed us to sit outside most days.
Luarca itself is a vibrant town and while we were there there was a number of different markets on. There are beaches in the town but some fantastic ones (playa de otur) within a short drive if you have a car.
I would definitely recommend this as a great place for a couple to stay and don't really have any negatives. My only comment would be that parking is about a 10 minute walk away and the apartment is on a hill which may be a problem with you have mobility problems.
The apartment is great value in a lovely seaside town and we hope to return again.
