    Costa Verde (Spain) holidays

The aptly-named "green coast" enjoys attractive sandy coves set below dramatic cliffs

Asturias is a little visited region on the north coast of Spain. Often called Green Spain – sometimes even ‘real’ Spain – it has a wild and dramatically beautiful interior, and a wonderfully unspoiled coastline strewn with sandy coves and tiny islets.

There are no less than 24 nature reserves here and with its distinctive cuisine of simple, honest food (often accompanied by local specialities cider and cheese), it offers all the character and flavour of real, rural Spain.


The coastline of the Cantabria region of northern Spain is sprinkled with fishing villages and coves.
