The Asturias region

Asturias exhibits the excellent quality intrinsic to its territory.

Its landscape, its culture, its food and drink, combined with the application of Quality Systems or Brands in the services provided by the tourist sector, position our region very well as a destination as regards the evolution shown by tourist demand.

The Principality of Asturias, along with its businessmen, are committed to quality as a new philosophy for work and service, helping us improve day by day and achieve customer satisfaction.

Our region is a pioneer in Spain, creating the first regional quality brand in the year 1994, "Casonas Asturianas" Quality Club, aimed at small hotels located in rural areas.

The Principality of Asturias continues to promote quality by setting up other Quality Brands, "Mesas de Asturias"- Culinary Excellence, aimed at restaurant establishments, and "Aldeas" - Asturias Rural Quality, aimed at Village Homes and Rural Apartments.

Continuing its commitment to quality, Asturias is the Region that certifies the largest number of Village Homes at the first Certification Board of the Spanish Tourist Quality System "Q", along with hotels, restaurants, travel agencies...

Asturias also has tourist companies certified with the standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001, EMAS and the EFQM Model of Excellence


a little about the area

we are very conveniently placed for day excursions all over asturias and indeed into the three bodering regions of cantabria, galicia and leon so you can really make the most of your stay in the way of sightseeing. we are placed near the three major cities but in a rural zone and very close to the coast and some wonderful beaches. there is a multitude of fishing villages within very close range and where you can sample the local cuisine and of course some wonderful seafood and fish straight from the mar cantabrico!

The closest beaches to the house are Xivares (surfing type) which has car park restuarant and bar, the beach is a sandy one. Five minutes along the road you have the fishing village of candas with its very popular sandy beach, obviously the plus here is that it is in a village with all the amenities but the downside will be that it will be busier on a hot day. Luanco is the next village along the coast and it boasts a lovely beach too. Near to aviles you have a wonderful beach called Salinas very long and great again for surfers or families in the other direction from aviles you have another great one xago which is well worth visiting if you like coastal walks the beah is fantastic too. Muros de Nalon is a little furhter away 20 mins and has an excellent beach Playa de aguilar which has some interesting caves exposed at low tide and a wonderful terrace restaruant (book your lunch table when you arrive as it gets busy). These are to name but a few but asturias has a myriad of different beaches along its wonderful coastline.

we can suggest also some wonderful grill restaurants which are typical along with the cider houses for their tapas, the meat is also of a very high standard here.

in the local village there is a bar restaurant with a childrens playground and an outside terrace where you can have some wonderful village type cooking and josefina will even do a paella, or tortilla to take away if you give her some notice so collect it on your way home from the beach and sit in the garden and enjoy eating al fresco or take the tortilla to the beach for your lunch.

there is a bread man tomas who brings along fresh bread and croissants to the house every morning (apart from sunday) and always a favourite with everyone are his freshly made doughnuts too delicious for words.

Guests with dogs.

Fancornio Rural is ideally placed for guests coming with their pets. In the immediate vicinity you can find some great walks, such as The Camino Santiago or Monte Areo with its many walkways, dolmens and recreation area.

We ask that guests who bring their pets take full responisibility for them and do not leave them alone in the house. If you wish to leave your pet (under your responsibility) in the garden, it must be restrained from being able to wander around or escaping. Alternatively there is a dog kennel nearby who will take your dog on a day basis.

Each one of the properties has its own garden area and you are asked to keep your pets in your own space and not allow them to wander into other spaces.

Nearby there is a very good local bar restaurant with a terrace outside and undercover which means that you can take your pets with you if you want to go out for a meal.

all in all whatever type of holiday active or relax you will find just what you want here at fancornio rural.

Un poco sobre la zona

Nos encontramos en una zona rural y tranquila pero a la vez alado de los tres ciudades mas importantes de Asturias. Gijón y Aviles 10 mins en coche, Oviedo 15mins. También las playas y la costa son a un paso con pueblos marineros como Luanco y Candas también a unos 10 mins. Si buscas paseas en la zona hay dos muy recomendables el de monte areo con sus dólmenes área recreativa y pista de aire modalismo. También el camino santiago donde se puede apreciar los póneys asturcones, zona también muy buena para hacer ciclismo por ser sin coches en su mayoría.

Cerca de la casa tenemos un bar restaurante donde preparan comida típico de la zona a precios muy populares, con su zona de parque infantil y terraza, pista de deportes y gimnasio al aire libre. También se puede encargar comida para llevar a casa como tortilla, paella etc.

Playas cerca de las casas

En unos 10 minutos de la casa se puede alcanzar la playa xivares con su area fina y olas para la delicia de los surfistas, cuenta con bar y restaurante, zona de parking y zona cruz roja.

Cinco minutos mas en la misma carretera tienes el pueblo de candas con su playa La Palma donde estas alado del puerto y sus restaurantes de marisco. Luanco (proximo pueblo mariñero) tambien tiene un playa mas grande y en una bahia. Cerca de Aviles tienes la playa xago que tambien es popular con familiares y surfistas, puedes llevar un picnic y comer debajo de una bosque de pinos alado de la playa. Hay dos bares que hace comida en esta playa tambien. En dirección de Muros de Nalon hay una playa con cuevas que se expone cuando se baja el marea con un bar con terraza donde se puede comer mirando el mar.(reserva la mesa cuando llegas porque es muy popular). En el otro dirección cerca de Colunga hay una playa que se llama La Griega y aquí se puede apreciar huellas de dinosaurios en las rocas y si tienes mucho fortuna encontrar un fósil.

Esos son solo algunos de las playas que no mencione los playas grandes y bellas de Aviles – Salinas y San Lorenzo en Gijon.

Si tienes niños.

Puedemos sugerir vaarios actividades muy popular con familiares por ejemplo el piragüismo en Pravia en el río Nalón. También damos a nuestros huéspedes información sobre los museos y sus días de entrada gratis como el jurasico que también es muy popular con niños.

Huespedes con perros

Los huéspedes con los perros.

Fancornio rural es ideal para los huéspedes que vienen con sus mascotas. En las inmediaciones se pueden encontrar algunos grandes paseos, como El Camino de Santiago o de Monte Areo, con sus pasarelas de muchos, los dólmenes y el área de recreación.

Pedimos que los huéspedes traigan a sus mascotas debajo su control y no los deje solos en la casa. Por otra parte hay una perrera cerca que se puede dejar su perro durante el día.

Cada una de las propiedades tiene su propia zona ajardinada, y se le pide que mantenga a sus mascotas en su propio espacio y no les permite vagar en otros espacios.

Cerca hay un restaurante local muy buen bar con una terraza al aire libre y secreto lo que significa que usted puede llevar sus mascotas con usted, si usted quiere ir a comer.

Hay muchas playas para escoger en la zona pero igual te interesa el playa xago cerca de Aviles porque en verano veo que se lleva perros (solo del lado izq.) de la playa donde están los surfistas.

we also like to help with as much information as possible for childrens activities (what ages are yours?) as there is a range of things they might like to try. the jurrassic museum is always a favourite and quite close and we can give you information on the free entrance day how to get there etc or the beach nearby with the dinosaur footprints!

"A bucolic setting, gracious hosts, and near so many things to enjoy!"

Located in the countryside yet near the coast (and so many beautiful beaches) the accommodations are excellent. It is an old farmhouse renovated to provide all the modern amenities. It is just a 15 minute drive to 2 good sized towns (1 of them, Gijón, is the largest in Asturias and boasts everything you can imagine). It is a quiet location surrounded by small rural farms, wide open spaces, and old forests… many great places to take walks.

Being so close to the coast and the attendant small fishing villages, the food rates 4 stars. In fact, Casa Gerado ( is just a few minutes drive from the house and is one of the best restaurants in Asturias.

The owners, Terri and Juan, are both gracious and generous. Language was not an issue as both speak excellent English and Spanish. The smallest detail was attended to and we left very happy in our choice of Fancornio Rural.

We especially liked that we could bring our companion animal (a well trained dog).
