    Accommodation recommendations wanted, 7 days Picos/Asturias August this year

    Hi, I'd like to spend a week in the area, I don't know it that well so I'm looking for something centralish that will put me in a good position to have a great ride every day!

    Requirements are-

    Beer
    Food
    Swimming pool
    Parking for 2 bikes
    Internet would be nice.....
    Something 2/3 star, a B & B would do if there are bars/restaurants in walking distance.....

    I'd be happy to split the week over 2 locations if that's a better option....


    thanks for reading,

    John

    Hi in Ribadesella at the moment. Fantastic location, beach front hotel with pool. Quiet at the moment and great selection of everything from spit on the floor to spit outside - been here a week and easy access to the Picos for the odd day out. Doug

    A couple of us stayed in La Vega for a couple of days at Casa Leny (Booking.com) last month. 15 mins from Potes, nice bars and restaurants close by.
    Good parking for the bikes and reasonably priced.
    No swimming pool but slap bang in the Picos area.
    We will stay there if we go back!

    I’m on the ferry tonight.

    Staying in a little village for a few nights then paradors in Cangas del Narcea and Cangas de Onis then four nights at the Hotel del Oso near Potes.

    Not stayed in any yet as normally ride through but will report back.

    Try and incorporate the roads in western Asturias,they are utterly amazing .

    For example




    But keep the speed down for the next few months !!

    Hi Travelling with my wife. We try to have a bit of a holiday in the middle of a tour so the Hotel de Sella was the choice. However, the whole town is great, we ate in the local cider house behind the hotel, chap was the spitting image of Angel Nieto, but ate for next to nothing. In Santander now on the way home. Just ordered a glass of wine from the hotel bar as a last fling 1.75 Euro - can’t believe it. By the way I found
    CERVERA DE PISUERGA to be a great town. Off the beaten track but the roads are empty. Flatter than the Picos but did a few tours north into the mountains. Just personal taste but I prefer the quieter life. Also has a parador but the town is back to basics. Locals are great

    Don’t know whether it’s of any use but I’ve booked here for two nights, looks promising and ideally situated for the Picos.
