Espinaredo

Just a stroll down the leafy lane to the pretty village of Espinaredo, with some of the best preserved HORREOS or barns in Spain, the little bar also serves a very pleasant tapas. 5km beyond you will find the outstanding restaurant La Vega (Lo De Pelayo), situated on the left just before you meet the main Infiesto road. With its wonderful menu bristling with freshly caught and grilled local fish, venison or wild boar, this is a restaurant not to miss. Make sure you try the spider crab when in season!! An superb 3 course evening meal with drinks and coffee will cost you around 20euros pp. 2 km further on lies the bustling local town of Infiesto, which offers everything from delicious home made pastries, to supermarkets, to kayak hire. The weekly farmers market takes place in the main square on Mondays. Infiesto has banks, a post office, a chemist, a police station, a petrol station, 2 train stations ( Oviedo every 35mins only 5 Euros) plus a medical centre, vets practice and a dentist etc. Good choice of shops, cafes and restaurants.

“An absolute gem in a perfect location”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2012

The Old School House is a real gem; an attractive, cosy house in a beautiful location. There are a few good rental properties in this part of Spain but this one is really special: far enough away to be in splendid isolation but close enough to be convenient for shops, restaurants etc. Well stocked with linen and towels, the kitchen is also very well equipped for cooking for nights in by the fire in front of the dvd. The owners are extremely helpful and informative. We arrived to find a new year bottle of bubbly welcoming us. This was our second stay and we are already booked in for a third. Highly recommended.

It was our pleasure to have you as guests, we are so pleased that you have rebooked too. Thank you for taking the time to review our little hideaway in N Spain.
