The village house of Pison de Fondon, is in a tranquil and rural village. A quality lodging for four people, it is in a setting where peace and rest are a part of everyday life. This beautiful house is in a quiet mountain village. It is ideal for exploring the natural beauty of this area with access to the peaks, valleys and the most beautiful beaches in Spain. This pretty village house, with its preserved stone walls and antique furniture, is bursting with rural charm; everything from the magnificent surroundings to the use of ecological restoration materials makes this a delightful and characterful place to stay. Original stonework can be seen both inside and out, and we used ‘ecological’ paints for the rendered wall surfaces. The chestnut ceilings and floorboards are treated with ...The village house of Pison de Fondon, is in a tranquil and rural village. A quality lodging for four people, it is in a setting where peace and rest are a part of everyday life. This beautiful house is in a quiet mountain village. It is ideal for exploring the natural beauty of this area with access to the peaks, valleys and the most beautiful beaches in Spain. This pretty village house, with its preserved stone walls and antique furniture, is bursting with rural charm; everything from the magnificent surroundings to the use of ecological restoration materials makes this a delightful and characterful place to stay. Original stonework can be seen both inside and out, and we used ‘ecological’ paints for the rendered wall surfaces. The chestnut ceilings and floorboards are treated with ‘ecological’ oils and dyes and most of the furniture is either restored or antique. There are two floors. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with double and twin beds and a fully-equipped, shared bathroom. The bed clothes are made from organic ‘ecological’ cotton and linen, with fluffy feather eiderdowns and pure wool blankets. On the ground floor there is a kitchen fitted with an oven and hob, fridge with freezer, washing machine, microwave oven, toaster, electric food-mixer, electric fruit squeezer, ironing board and cooking equipment. The open plan space includes a sitting area with sofa and armchairs, a wood-burning stove and TV/DVD with USB. We have a handful of films and you can bring your favourites too. This looks on to a large patio of 100 square metres with wooden outdoor furniture, including a barbecue, table and chairs and recliners. Completely enclosed, you can enjoy peace, quiet and tranquillity here. We make every effort to reduce our ecological impact so that you can enjoy a healthy and pleasant environment. In line with this the house is a non-smoking area. VISITORS’ COMMENTS 'Well, we have had a lot of experience of all kinds of accommodation and, this time round, we wanted to try out something in a totally rural environment and, to be honest, we have come away delighted. There is nothing lacking to the house itself and, in addition, you notice when you go in that it has all those things that give you that sense of warmth that makes your stay pleasant. Aside from that I should mention the owner, Carmen. It is a real pleasure to meet a host like her. We were pleasantly surprised by her manner, the personal attention she showed and the good person she showed herself to be. We warmly recommend this house to anyone who wants to get to know Asturias well.' 'There are experiences in life we should not miss and one of them is to enjoy the autumn in magical spots like this house: everything about it breathes tranquility. The house is perfect to rest and make excursions to the Somiedo Natural Park. Many thanks Carmen for your good work, you are a delight and have a great eye for detail. We will always return.' More

About the neighborhood
The central location of the house makes it an ideal starting point for visiting the sights of Asturias, undoubtedly one of Spain’s most attractive bucolic regions. The ‘protected area’ of Pico Caldoveiro is very nearby, the Camino Real de la Mesa is 4km away, and Puerto de Maravio is 10km away. The house is also not far from the Parque Natural de Somiedo (20km) and the Senda del Oso (30km). All of these are places of unique natural beauty and provide a wonderful array of walks and wildlife for visitors. Within the village, you can enjoy the simple pleasures of local farming and livestock handling (either in an observational capacity or in a more hands-on sense if you choose!) or you can just relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. There is a good restaurant, 4 Km Cudillero, nice villa...
Getting around
To visit the area I would recomend to hire a car if you don't have yours. There is a train station in Grado and also buses to many places
