If I were heading over to Spain tomorrow, I'd be likely to rent a casa rurale in Asturias, head over to the local store to stock up on some cabrales cheese, some bread and some local sidra--cider--and then arrange the chairs on the veranda toward the long and eye-pleasing vistas and just sit a spell with my groceries.
Of course, there's lots to do in the daytime, especially if you wanted to depart the beautiful world above to see some prehistoric painted caves. Yes, famous Altamira is close, and so are many other caves that are easier to get into.
You'll find some valuable information on Asturias on the About network. Check out the overview of the northern coast in Spain with my Asturias and Cantabria Map and Travel Guide, then get the detailed facts on travel in the region:
