Unique renovated shepherd's cottage. Light and airy with beautiful views. South West facing stone terrace, barbecue, hammocks; sumptous breakfasts and evening meals on request. Well located for beaches, cities and mountains and fantastic cycling and walking routes. Completely off-grid for a low impact eco-holiday. Read the reviews!
As with all the facilities on our farm, the Coco cabaña is off-grid, which is great if you're looking for a low impact holiday.
There are 2 very important things to consider before you decide to book:
1. If you are a very nervous driver our access will be challenging for you. However, hundreds of people in all sorts of cars have successfully negotiated it.
2. All electricity is from solar panels. THE SYSTEM IS NOT DESIGNED FOR ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES WITH HEATING ELEMENTS: NO HAIR DRYERS OR HAIR STRAIGHTENERS!!! But is fine for recharging phones, laptops etc. If there is no sun for a couple of days, we may have a no electricity...don't worry we have candles!
It's very important that our guests are willing to embrace the principle of using the resources carefully and responsibly, so please consider what this means. Please speak to us before booking, if you have any questions regarding your water and power needs.
The cabaña can sleep up to 6:
* upstairs is open plan and has a double bed and 1 set of bunk beds; *downstairs there is a sofa that converts into 1 double bed.
*There is a log burning stove (we provide free wood from beginning October to end of May but you are welcome to buy firewood if you want a fire during the summer months);
*a shower room with a hot water heater and a toilet;
*a small basic kitchen, with 3 ring burner, sink, and cooking/dining ware for 6.
*There is a cool box in the kitchen: you need to buy ice.
*During the summer months, in the nearby shed there is a shared fridge where there is space for a few things.
*Outside, the South West facing stone terrace has a table and benches for outdoor dining.
*We also have a family size barbecue which you're welcome to use.

If you want a break from cooking, meals can be prepared on request: high quality evening meals 25€ per person and breakfasts 10€ per person (half price for children under 12). Our food is always freshly prepared to a high standard and we use our own organic produce where possible. Please give 48 hours notice if you would like a meal.
WiFi is available near by at Straw Bale HQ WHEN THERE IS ENOUGH SOLAR ENERGY
There is a communal fridge close to our house. This is shared by the cabana, yurt and caravan, so you have a shelf each.
Also, we have a good sized trampoline that kids are welcome to play on.
Interaction with guests
Of course, we´ll be present during your stay as the farm is where we do our daily work. We´re generally pretty busy, so you´ll probably see us on our way to feed the pigs or look after the greenhouse..don´t worry though, we´ll do our best to give you your own space as much possible.
If you're interested in off-grid living or anything else that we're doing, then we are very happy to chat and share knowledge or information.
Other things to note
During the summer, on certain weeks we will have a qualified cycle ride leader staying with us. He will be offering guided cycling and walking tours around the area and will have cycles to rent. Please let us know if you're interested and we'll put you in touch.
We're also developing a series of laminated cycle and walking routes of varying lengths and difficulty. You're welcome to browse them and borrow one if it takes your fancy.
We allow smoking but not inside the cabaña, please ask for an ashtray if you are a smoker.

We left the UK with our daughter Grace in 2011 to come to Asturias to live, work, grow, eat, build and enjoy living a low impact high quality life in a beautiful part of the world. So far so good!
Liz is a great cook and delights in using homegrown ingredients from our organic farm. Guests, volunteers, friends and family enjoy fabulous dishes from around the world.
Steve loves doing things with his hands such as designing, creating and repairing structures and systems for the farm.
As a family we've benefited so much from our Airbnb experiences. We've met so many wonderful people from around the world and we love the challenge of making our farm a beautiful and special place to be.
