If you love the sea but also hanker after tranquility, away from the hubbub of the typical tourist traps, then this could be just the property for you. On the stunningly beautiful eastern coast of Asturias, the tranquil hamlet of Abeu that is home to this traditional stone-built property is amazingly tucked away just off the beaten track. It has been protected from over-development by design – most of the land and buildings in and surrounding the village are in the hands of a single country estate that has sought to protect the privacy of its noble owners and the peacefulness of the location for all the residents. Thus this really is a very special opportunity to get your hands on a slice of unspoilt paradise – but with all the tourist and residential amenities you could wish for just a stone’s throw away.

A ten minute walk along a breathtaking stretch of coastline takes you to the beautiful rocky cove of Tereñes. Hidden between cliffs and with no public parking or amenities, it is a great place to escape the crowds in summer.

The extensive beach of Playa de Vega  with its bars, restaurants and excellent surf is 5 minutes drive or half an hour’s pleasant walk along a pretty coastal path.

The elegant and very popular seaside town of Ribadesella is 6km away, with its array of bars and restaurants, shops, fishing port and surf beach. Here you will also find schools, medical centre, train station and all local services. The large Alimerka supermarket at the entrance to the town is a mere 3km from the property, so you can get all your supplies without even braving the summer crowds if you don’t want to.

The house itself is in decent condition and is perfectly habitable, if a little dated and basic. The potential it offers for renovation is, however, truly wonderful. The windows to the front, for example, are just crying out to be enlarged to picture size to really take full advantage of those sea views and the magical coastal light. Depending on your desires and budget you could get stuck in straight away to construct your dream home or chip away at it bit by bit.

The attached barn could be used either to extend the main house or be converted into a separate tourist apartment. The separate cider barn (llagar) also offers potential for conversion into tourist accommodation if you are looking for income potential.
