The 3rd floor apartment was fabulous with all you need for a holiday. It was very clean and spacious. The owner came to meet us and was very welcoming and gave us plenty of useful information about the area. The only negative is that there was no wifi but actually this was good for our family to have a break from screen time!
If arriving in Gijon, you will need to take a cab or bus 12 to get to the. The local beach is 10 minute walk away but there are a few beaches in Gijon so it's worth getting to know the bus routes:bus stop is just outside the apartment. The train station is a 5 minute walk away So if you are planning a day trip to nearby towns then this really handy and very cheap. We went to Oviedo which is well worth a visit. We happened to be there during Gran Senana so had the joy of seeing the music concerts and fireworks with the locals and Spanish holiday makers. Gijon offers a variety of things for everyone: cafes; beaches; Asturian food; shops; water sports; history; culture and helpful, friendly locals - clean streets, cheap public transport. We would definitely go back.
