Spain’s northern coast, the Costa Verde (‘Green Coast’) is fully deserving of its name – lush hills and pastureland tumble down to grassy cliffs which in turn frame secluded beaches of virgin sand. Behind all this rise the Picos de Europa Mountains whose jagged limestone peaks provide a striking backdrop while you walk and explore in this alluring region.

"It's about as idyllic as it gets. Guests wake up to the sight of snow-dusted peaks, red-roofed stone buildings dotted across the valley and sheep munching grass under the apple trees."
Liz Edwards, Waitrose Magazine, September 2010

Spend a few days at the charming Posada del Valle in the Sueve Sierra and discover the different faces of this glorious region either by car or on foot. We provide notes for a number of rewarding walks in the mountains and along the coast. Using your car, you can discover prehistoric caves, pre-Romanesque churches, and a string of timeless fishing villages which runs along the Atlantic Coast.
