Asturias

Mrs AL & I have decided to spend 3 weeks near Oviedo next month, instead of the annual pilgrimage to the costas.
Anyone know the area well, and could recommend places to visit/eat etc?
We quite like off the beaten track type of things, so any help would be much appreciated.

What a great idea.
I cycled from Oviedo to Santiago two summers ago, along the coast. Breathtakingly beautiful views, great food and kind, welcoming people everywhere - they don't get mass tourism so they're not blasé.

It's great cycling country.
I'll look up the towns we ate in tomorrow, and pass on some tips. You'll have a car with you, I guess?

Enjoy mate.

Cudillero - you need to get down into the bay and hang, and eat and drink.
It's all off the beaten track, really. People don't think of Asturias first.

Yes, got motor.
Some folk reckon weather a bit lousy, sort of Southern version of Wales.
Missus quite keen on buying a place there - I guess property values quite cheap?

Property will be very cheap in most of Asturias to Brits, yeah......it does rain a fair bit, though. Easy to get to as well, there's an international airport.

I went to Oviedo for work once. Enjoyed it immensely, though I was looked after by a Spanish government rep so that helped. However, besides that, in the old town its easy to find great cider bars and places to eat, so, as far as I can recall, you can't go wrong.

Having transport is good. Someone else I met over there was heading off into the hills beyond. He'd been before and reckoned it was the best bit of Spain. Looking at the map now I'm not sure which bit he mentioned as it was long ago but I reckon the national park to the south west must've been it. I also heard good things about the coast.

Thanks to you all for the advice.
Taken ages to write this with my left hand, as I came off my bike today trying to avoid a dog whose cretinous owner left the little toe rag off the lead.
Right arm now in plaster!
