Margarita and her family were incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home - even with our extreme lack of Spanish language skills! Her breakfasts in the morning were a highlight, and the room we were in had a fantastic view over the valley. Most of the other guests had come from other parts of Spain and were staying in the apartments with young families - there's plenty to keep young kids entertained, including the evening cow herding! It was the perfect location for us, as it was quiet and tucked out of the way but all the things you want to see in the area are within an easy drive. It is quite rustic, as advertised, so do just bear that in mind if that's not what you're looking for! We spent one night away during the middle of our trip in Soto de Cangis so that we were closer to the Picos and the coast near Llanes, but the drive there is very straightforward so you could easily do that part of Asturias as day trips. There are two local restaurants within walking distance from the house, both only spoke Spanish but El Almacen had a written menu so you could figure most things out. There is a kitchen which the guests staying in individual rooms are able to use if you prefer to make your own meals. I would recommend taking the time to do some research before you go, as while there are tourist information points in most of the obvious places we were glad we'd researched beforehand as it would have been hard to find things out while there. There is a lovely hike we found up to Bandujo that is nearby and we would recommend. It starts just after Caranga de Abajo, near to the popular Senda del Oso but much quieter (we didn't see any other hikers). We would definitely go back, though might spend a bit more time brushing up on our Spanish beforehand. Hope this stays a hidden gem so we can!
