Comarca de la Sidra – The Cider Shire

Composed of the concejos of Villaviciosa, Cabranes, Bimenes, Sariego and Nava, the Comarca de la Sidra is at the very heart of that most Asturian of things, cider production.

A rural idyll with strong community and a clear connection to the land and nature, this very traditional area can make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Perfect for those wishing to escape the ‘rat-race’ of life in modern industrialized nations.

The soft temperate climate that suits apple growing also suits many expats from northern Europe – mild winters and warm summers with temperatures rarely breaching the 30 degree mark make for comfortable living and more time spent in the great outdoors.
