What suggestions do you have? Which places are a must? How about accommodation? Would it be better in the main cities or villages?

Drive trip along "Dinosaur Route"

Dear VTers

We'd like to do a drive trip in Asturias but have a few concerns we'd like to hear comments on.
1. We're keen to check out the Dinosaur route - any itineraries to recommend and nice rural cottages we could stay along the way?
2. Is it better to pick the car up from Bilbao or Santander?
3. We're not used to driving on the same side in Spain but are generally safe drivers. Can someone suggest if we should even drive and how we can get help from the GPS or maps?

Any advice on driving would be really appreciated. Thanks

Infiesto to Bordeaux?  (5 Answers)

Hi,

We are staying near Infiesto thru most of June and July this year and whilst there my daughter (19) fancies spending a few days on her own in Bordeaux to improve her French language skills. I've spent the last few hours checking out the ALSA, RENFE, FEVE, TGV sites and it looks like an absolute nightmare to do a journey like this. There are multiple changes (train to train, train to bus, bus to train etc)and it seems to take around 18 hours!Frankly, it would be easier for me to drive her there (but I suspect that she wouldn't be too keen on that).

Am I missing something? Is there an easier way to do what should, on the face of it , be a relatively simple journey? If anyone has done a trip like this (or even Oviedo to Bordeaux or Santander to Bordeaux) would you mind sharing how you did it? Any alternative suggestions would be very welcome! Thanks in advance.

Camping in Asturias

Hi Everyone
My hubby and I are travelling to Asturias in June (arriving from the ferry in Santander) we will be there for 8 days altogether driving around in our car and would like to explore as much of it as we can as it looks so beautiful. I wandered if any of you know any really good camp sites as we will be camping all the time. I have done a lot of research on the internet but can't really find any info apart from a couple of addresses. Would love to hear from anyone who has been to any or knows of any that stand apart from the rest i.e. nice surroundings, clean, big pitch etc etc. I also heard there is one in the national park but can't seem to find it? Please can anyone help me, I would be very grateful, this is my first time in Spain and I am so looking forward to it.

Thanks

we have never been to this part of spain, and are planning to drive for two weeks (asturias to, eventually, barcelona, starting in madrid). will we be able to navigate the roads? should we be worried about weather? we would very much like to drive through the Picos de Europa National Park... is this unrealistic for this time of year?

Base in Asturias  (1 Answer)

Hi there, I am going for a brief visit to Northern Spain (5 days), flying into Asturias / Oviedo. We are keen to have as good a look as possible as the different aspects of the region - beaches (Gijon, Cudillero perhaps), villages, towns and the mountains (Picos de Europa). I have previously travelled in the north east so don't need to return to places such as Santillana del Mar etc. My question is this - what do you believe is the best place to stay as a base for the region, or would staying in two different places for 2-3 days each be better - if so, where towns would you choose for these two bases?
Thanks for you help :-)

Confused, please help..?  (5 Answers)

Hola,

I've already spent the whole last week looking for detailed info on Asturias, but I'm still confused.

My trip is going to be on beginning of May. How's the weather by then?
I couldn't find any info regarding this.

Few VT's guides and some other sites suggested renting a car to explore the beautiful nature of Asutrias. But in my trip, I only have 2 days and I'm there for the nature.
What are your suggestion's, guys?

If I only have 2 days, should I stay in Oviedo, Gigon or Avile?
How about visiting Pico de Europa? How can I make it if I stayed in one of these cities?

Any input, suggestion or help is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Parador Fuentes De  (1 Answer)

Hi, I'm traveling to Asturias in June 2007 and would like to visit the Parador Fuentes De. Here is my question: How is the road to get to the Parador? Is it too treacherous? I'll probably be driving from Oviedo. Also, if you have any experience with Paradores, a few weeks ago they had seniors and young adult rates of 45 euros per person, but now I don't see that option any more, is it over?

From Asturias Airport to Luarca: where to get on the Feve train?  (3 Answers)

Will be going to Luarca, the first week of October.
Am flying in from Madrid to Asturias Airport.

Taking the bus to Oviedo and then getting on the Feve train to Luarca is time consuming, because of the time schedule.

Taking a taxi to Aviles and - there- taking the Feve train direction Ferrol makes more sense?

Or is there an Alsa bus from the Airport to Luarca?
(This info I have not been able to find online.)

Am an older deaf lady, trying to get as much information as possible.

Would appreciate it very much to receive some help.

Greetings from Holland/ Lee
