Hola chicos! Soy una profesora que va a moverse allí a Mieres para trabajar por un año. Estoy buscando un piso barato cerca del centro de la cuidad. Tenéis algún consejo? Tb, ya sé que Oviedo esta cerca entonces sería mejor conseguir un piso allí? Prefiero un piso situada en la zona de estudiantes o en algún sitio donde puedo encontrar nueva gente fácilmente. Gracias de antemano! :) Hey guys, I'm a teacher/student and I am moving to Mieres in Asturias in September. I'm looking for a cheap flat near the city centre. Any advice? I know that Oviedo is nearby so would it be easier to get a flat there instead? I'd like to live in a student area or somewhere where it would be easy to meet new people as I am new to the area. Thanks in advance :)

Are there local tour guides in Oviedo? Can you recommend one?
I only have one day reserved to see the Picos. Are there tour companies taking tourists for a day trip to the Picos from Oviedo? Or is this something I have to do on my own using the buses? Thank u for your help.
I am planning to travel to Asturias airport at the end of August. Does anyone know if there is a train or bus service to Luarca and how I might get timetable details please? My date of travel will depend on connection availability. Thanks.
We will be driving from Las Arenas in Cantabria to Santiago de Compostela(sp?) in one day. I realize this doesn't give us much time, but wondered if there was a spot along the way that would let us get out and see some rocky coastline. We will be there in late September. Many thanks!
Hi! We are traveling to Gijon for about a week at the end of September. There are 4 of us and a baby. We'd really like to rent a house that sleeps 4 people and is also non-smoking. Can anyone recommend a good company or know of friends who rent apts or houses or cottages in or near Gijon? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you! Jin Yi
I have been researching transportation from Oviedo to Covadonga. alsa.es has buses but we would have to stay there longer than we want to spend there - so am looking at renting a car. I rented a car via Hertz in Malaga before, but am looking into other companies. This is what we need: - no hassles - I would like to pay all possible insurances so if I hit something I don't have any out of pocket expenses. I know, this is not optimal but I prefer it that way. - pick up and return at reasonable hours. There's a Hertz and Avis right by the train station/bus station in Oviedo ... I am leaning in that direction except for the expen$e, but pick up is 9:30 am, so we will need to pick up late the date before. Anyone open earlier/later? The airport location is too far. - need around 300 KM - we will only have the car for the 71 km. from Oviedo to the Covadonga sanctuary. -no surprises - sometimes I'd rather pay more than have any car mileage or other surprise from a smaller rental. I saw the other recommendations in this forum and did not care for the companies mentioned. Any stable car companies or other suggestions? We just need the car for one day. I may just be renting from Avis and getting it over with - but if there is a better opiton I would welcome hearing about it. Thanks. Martha

Do the rooms in the Hotel San Miguel have air conditioning and a television? Are they currently having any construction work or rehabilitation going on in the hotel or nearby?
Does anyone know whether the Sudarium of the Oviedo cathedral is on public display, or is it kept away from view? I will be in the area soon and would consider visiting Oviedo just to have a look, but only if it is on display for the general public. Just curious. Thank you
Does anyone know what is going on with the Playa Del Sol Los Cabos? They closed for the summer, but there is no scheduled date to reopen. There is a company in Florida that claims they bought the property, but the Playa group says they still own it. We have a reservation over spring break 2010, and I've very concerned. Please reply if you have any info, or if you've recently had a reservation for this property while they were closed. Did they move you? Thanks!!

How long does the train take from Alicante to Gijon
Hello. We are planning to visit Cabo around the end of June/early July. I believe the temperature will be in the high 80s. What is the humidity level around that time? Thanks
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.
Does anyone know if there is a bus or another form of public transportation from Oviedo to the mountains for a day of skiing??? Also, how far is it from Oviedo to the mountains??? Hay una forma de transporte publico o autobus desde Oviedo a las pistas para esquiar??? Muchas gracias!! Jamie

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 Shell
Hi My 7 year old son has asked to go to the Jurassic Museum in Asturias. I've identified the museum and the sites that he would like to see, but i've no idea where to stay in the area!! I assume that we can fly to Ranon (OVD), where is the best place to stay to visit the museum and see the surrounding area, we're hoping to go for a long weekend in May if possible. Any help that you can give me with this is much appreciated! Thanks Sam
hi guys, yes it'd that time of the year again! My family and I are off to Spain in August, yippee! Just wondered if anyone could recommend a suitable hotel for 1 night only in or around Gijon, as we have 1 night to kill before our villa is available and Gijon seems to be the perfect midway point. Would like to know if any hotels offer family rooms/adjoining room as boys will be 12 and 15 and getting too large to sleep in makedo camp beds. Not sure if hotels would allow them a room on their own either. We're not fussed about too many 'facilities' or stars as long as the hotel is comfortable and friendly. All suggestions greatly received! Happy travelling Thanx

We are visiting Gijon over christmas and new years with KIDS! 4 year old, 2 year old and 8months old. Are there any place we should visit? Any playgrounds? Please give me some recommendation on family friendly (not classy) restaurant that serves good food. Thank you thank you thank you. I am so excited to visit such a beautiful city. Also, if anyone knows.. Is it easy to get around town by bus with kids? If we taxi, I thought we would need child car seat. (am I right?) so, bus is the only option seems like. If there are any recommendation, comments, advice, please let me know.
Is there a local car hire firm I can use (other than the usual suspects)in Ovideo or near airport. I need the car for four weeks and would rather give my money to a local car rental agent than a mulit national. Thanks
