Our house is in Asturias in Northern Spain, the 'Green Spain'. The house is situated in a small mountain hamlet, Samartin, between the Picos de Europa National Park range and the Parque Natural de Redes, and about half an hour from the coast. The nearest small market town, Infiesto, is 5km away.
The whole area is ideal for nature lovers and there are many walks from the door. The surrounding villages, small towns and unspoilt coast line are a delight.
The refurbishment of the house is not totally finished yet (the top floor of the house is not developed, but it is closed from the rest by a door on the landing), and although not luxurious, it is well equipped and has everything needed for a holiday.
We now want to start to let it to friends and acquaintances because we prefer it to be occupied in between our visits.
San Martin (Samartin in the Asturian dialect) is about 5 km from Infiesto. It is situated at the end of a single track lane, 1 mile from the local road. The hamlet is about 450m above sea level and has beautiful views which ever way you look, and because it faces south, it has a microclimate of its own. Lemon trees grow in the village and more strange, even an olive tree which gives olives, unusual so far north.
