Switch off from the busy world.

And switch into nature. A bath? A hike and a picnic? Cider? You choose.

My surroundings

My surroundings

My village, El Faedal, has a population of 20 people, who work in agriculture and livestock farming. They lead simple lives and are welcoming people who are always ready to help. Feel at home in a forest environment, enjoy the meadows with their cows, goats, sheep and the rooster crowing in the morning.

The natural spectacle is magnificent. Valleys and mountains alternate around the village, in the heart of the Valdés municipal county. Nearby, there are other villages such as La Mortera, Brieves, Ferrera or Muñás.

Clinic, pharmacist, supermarkets, ATMs, post office. There are bars, restaurants and many shops. It also has its own church.

Trevías is the largest nearby village with the most services. Its geography is determined by the course of the river Esva, which flows through it. The Foces del Esva route, by the way, is highly recommended.

Service station.

From Novellana you can already see the sea. It is a larger village, with many scattered houses and several restaurants. I would stop at El Roxu before going up to El Faedal, if you are coming from the motorway.

Bar.

Ferrera is a nearby village, with a traditional Asturian Bar. Very tipical. Don't miss it.

Asturian cuisine is based on high quality local produce: meat, fish and varied vegetables. You will enjoy a nice meal in any given cider bar (chigre), in a Michelin star restaurant, and all the categories in between.

You can go to a restaurant in the piers of Luarca, Cudillero, Soto de Luíña, Caroyas, Novellana… these are good places, but there are many more.
