Re: Base in Asturias
We stayed in Candas a small seaside village which has train and bus connections to both Oviedo and Gijon. Candas has a fishing harbour and no real beach but it has enough cafes and bars to use in the evenings. You can walk along the cliffs to the west but east is not possible beyond the lighthouse. Gijon has a large beach but didn't impress. God's eggcup overlooks the harbour from an old fortified site.
Oviedo was more attractive and is definately worth a visit. The old town has some impressive buildings.
We were only there 3 days so didn't have the chance to go further afield but it's a lovely area.
