Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great place to vistit, especially kids (of all ages). Family run business in the countryside of Asturias, absolutely beautiful on a sunny day. Animals have no provblems with visitors, and it's just great for kids. A pregant cow was calmly resting right next to the parking lot and we get to see how to milk her...and then try ourselves! These are the things that you don't get to see or do anymore today! And the family business looks great! Bring a cooler so you can buy and bring everything home...even if you have a long car ride afterwards (to Madrid for example).

    This is a really nice beach. It's long, it's wide. There's plenty of space and only few international visitors. It's fun place, a safe place with lots of families.
    The beach itself is very nice, but also the woods backing the beach is a nice area for people who prefers some cool shade and some quiet.
    There is plenty of free parking all along the way, but keep in mind that in high season they still fill up fast!

    There's a bunch of restaurants to fill your hungry stomach. Also bathroom / shower facilities. And then the part we liked best: A nice boardwalk all along the beach. It goes on for miles. Dogs are also allowed on there. Perfect for folks who need some walks like us. Loved it.

    Group tour. Enjoyed sampling of hard cider. Plant was spotless. So clean. Nice historical hall provided good information on this facility working for many generations.

    Lovely spot. But challenging to get to depending on the rough the gps takes you! The have homemade ice cream and jams. When we went picking blueberries and blackberries. We were traveling, so only got a very small container. Well priced.

    This area (Oviedo in particular) has several excellent examples of pre-romanesque churches built in the 800s by the Asturian kings but this one is in the countryside, a lovely drive from or to Oviedo. It is attached to a monastery (where you can stay or eat). Just go into the reception/gift shop and pay the small fee (1.50 euros a person) and the receptionist will unlock the church, give you some history sheets in the appropriate language and leave you alone for a half hour or so to comtempate the remaining murals (very little) and the lovely space and light in the church. You can take all the photos you want--a plus.

    A simple and peaceful church within and worth looking at if you are walking around the charming old town of Villaviciosa - especially look at the highly decorated main entrance porch with its mixture of sacred and profane carvings. Thirteenth century mixture of gothic and romantic architecture. I liked it. There is a small Spanish leaflet of explanation and I believe there may be a guided tour available at certain times to gain more from visit.

    You have to really like cider to go on a tour of a cider factory, a bit like all the whisky aficionados travelling around the highlands and islands distilleries, but this one's worth it. Villaviciosa is the capital of Spanish sidra, and Casa Cortina, just outside the town on a 20 minute walk, is a good place to see how they make this great drink.

    The tour guide really tried hard to help us out with first giving the descriptions in Spanish, then giving us an English translation. Even though we speak some Spanish, it was kind of her to accommodate us. For only 2 Euros, the tour explains how they used to process the apples, and how they still get deliveries from outside orchards to contribute to the stock.

    Things have changed over the years, with giant chilled metal barrels holding thousands of gallons of cider, which, with your complimentary glass, you learn how to pour the cider the Asturian way.

    We then got a chance to sample the ice cider, which you can by from their store. The ticket you get also buys you a free bottle of cider from the restaurant next door.

    This is an excellent small museum explaining the history of the estuary, its fauna and flora and its current ecological challenges. It is free of charge and has regular and frequent opening hours. Although the panels are all in Spanish there is comprehensive translation available at the desk and the man there was extremely helpful in answering our questions. It is child friendly with lower level panels for the smaller ninos and there was also other tourist information available for the area. A very worthwhile visit.

    this small beach and marina is beautifully situated on the lovely estuary at Villaviciosa and pleasant enough to stroll around for the views but we found it grubby including the beach itself which had horribly polluted water - in which children were swimming unbelievably. There is a small wood in the middle and a cafe below a block of what look like holiday apartments. The area is much used by locals for various boating/kayaking activities and for picnics at the weekend although we much preferred Rodiles beach on the other side of the water.

    It is a nice beach and my friend who is a local took me there and said it is one of the best beaches close to Gijon, it was around 20 minute drive. It is probably not the best for swimming due to the rocks but it looks pretty cool and you can sunbathe on the big rocks. There were people surfing. Very poetic and natural place but also with some restaurants and bars.
