El Pedrueco is an old typical house from Asturias situated in the heart of the Cider region.
It’s in the center of east Asturias, so you can easily get to know its countryside, art, gastronomy and culture.
House and garden are there to relax and enjoy nature, accompanied by your family or friends, while you share a nice glass of cider
A traditional “hórreo” (elevated granary), old bread baking oven , garden, orchard, and lovely secluded spots will make your stay a pleasant one, full of peace and tranquility in a very special location.
El Pedrueco is a rural house rented as a whole with capacity for 5 – 6 persons.
The ground floor has a living room with library, wood chimney, stereo, TV, DVD, kitchen with dining room & vitroceramic (2 heaters) ; fridge, freezer, microwave oven, washing machine and other electrical appliances, as well as dishes, kitchen utensils, etc.
In the first floor are the bedrooms, two double rooms with 2 singles beds each and complete bathrooms and another bedroom with a double bed , toilet and shower (with hairdryer).
The names of the bedrooms refer to the three traditional trees in Asturian culture: “El Texu” (yew tree), “L’Ablanu” ( hazelnut tree), and “El Manzanu” (apple tree). All of the furniture in these bedrooms have been restored and decorated in our own workshop.
“ The Yew tree”:
The yew tree is the sacred tree in Asturian mythology and represents the link of the Asturian people with the earth, with old religions and our ancestors. It symbolises spirituality.
“The Apple tree”:
The apple tree represents immortality. The apples, when cut horizontally have the shape of the five pointed star, which is the talisman of power. When cut vertically the apple takes the shape of the female genitals, symbolising the power of regeneration.
“The Hazelnut tree”
The hazelnut tree provides the wood to make the walking stick, and symbolises magic power and authority, hence its name the pacifist’s weapon. Furthermore, this wood has always been the support for walkers.

heating and hot water.

Asturias and The Cider Shire, both fare well from the sea (with a vast range of fish and seafood), and from the mountains where cattle and sheep are fed by their green pastures, apart from this we can´t forget home grown green vegetables.
It would be unthinkable when visiting Asturias not to sample “les fabes” ( butter beans), the essential ingredient of the most famous of Asturian dishes: “ la fabada” ( pork and beans stew).
Visitors shouldn´t forget to taste fish in a thousand and one different ways, el pixin (monkfish), la chopa (bream), salmonete (red mullet). From the seafood: el oricio (sea urchin), la andarica (small crab), la ñocla (crawfish), el centollo (spider crab), el bugre (lobster), almejas (clams), and percebes (barnacles). From the rivers salmons and trouts are the best option.
From the range of meats, the variety of “carne roxa” (Asturian beef) has an exceptional quality, together with pork spicy sausages like “chorizo”, “morcilla”, or “chosco”. The “pitu caleya” free range chicken, deserves a special mention, as well as the variety of mountain game (wild boar, roe deer, deer).
Try “el bollu preñau” (roll stuffed with chorizo), and the immense range of different cheeses -Asturias is one of the richest cheese-making regions in Spain - just to mention some of them: Cabrales, Gamoneu, de Fuente, de Bota, Afuega´l Pitu, Porrúa, Vidiago, Beyos, La Peral, Oscos, de Pría....
A wide range of typical puddings and cakes: rice pudding, frixuelos (similar to crèpes), borrachinos, marañuelas, tocinillos de cielo, casadielles, charlota, tarta gijonesa, carbayones,...
And finally, the Asturian drink by excellence: cider, obtained from apples in a “llagar” (cider press) and fermented in “pipas” (big barrels) made of chestnut wood. It can be appealing for first time visitors to watch how the cider is poured over the head into the glass held in the other hand, to get the right fizz.

Comencé esta aventura hace 12 años,arrastrando a mi familia, persiguiendo el sueño de compaginar nuestros trabajos con la vida rural.
Alquilamos una pequeña casa junto a la nuestra y en estos años hemos conocido a mucha gente y hecho muchos y grandes amigos.
Gonzalo es médico de familia y yo trabajo como terapeuta ocupacional en un geriátrico.
Nos gusta la naturaleza, la música, el cine, la gastronomía, viajar, la sidra, la cerveza (Gonzalo es el experto) y el buen vino (La experta soy yo).
Somos aficionados a la cocina, donde elaboramos riquísimos bizcochos y mermeladas caseras, a la jardinería y a los animales (nuestro gatos Khensi, Blanche y Klen forman parte de nuestra familia).
Tenemos un huerto ecológico del que pueden disfrutar.
Nos encanta conversar con la gente, disfrutando de cualquier rincón del jardín acompañándolo de un "culín" de sidra.
Estaremos encantados, si lo necesitan, de ayudarles o informarles de lo que precisen.
Hablamos bastante inglés y algo de francés, pero sobre todo ponemos muchísimo interés para entendernos.
Nos gusta la música, la lectura, el cine, la buena gastronomía y sobre todo viajar conociendo países y gentes.
Llevamos en el turismo rural desde el año 2000 y siempre ha sido una experiencia positiva y enriquecedora ganando a través de los años muchos clientes y también bastantes amigos.
