I was born in Oviedo, grew up and lived there until I moved to the UK in 2001. Most of the times I won't be in Oviedo but I'm available to be contacted at anytime if my guests need so. There will be also a local contact who will greet you, hand the keys in and give basic information about the apartment. Prior to the arrival date I will send formation via e-mail to my guests about the property and local amenities.
Oviedo is the capital of the Principality of Asturias. The former Ovetum has been closely linked to the Asturian monarchy since its foundation (8th century), and even became the capital of the Kingdom. This fact has left an unquestionable medieval flavour in the historic quarter, which in modern times has been given a carefully-considered urban layout which is easy to move around. Oviedo, located in the centre of Asturias, provides easy access to the entire province via a variety of routes, an exceptional starting point to approach examples of pre-Romanesque art with World Heritage status, the coastline of the Costa Verde, incredible natural landscapes for all kinds of sports and, of course, a first-class gastronomic culture.

I live in the beautiful, multicultural and world famous city of Cambridge, UK.
I was born in Oviedo, grew up and lived there until I moved to Cambridge after finishing my University PhD. My parents still live in Oviedo and I love going back there with my family whenever I can escape my busy life in Cambridge as a full-time Scientist and Mum.
I'd like a lot o people to visit my hometown and Asturias because the North of Spain is totally different from the rest of the country. Don't expect here flamenco, bullfighting and massive tourism but a green landscape, high mountains, mild temperatures, friendly locals and a lot of nature, art, culture and gastronomy to discover.
