About Mrs Sara Aubrey
We came to live in Asturias in 2005 when our two girls were very young. We chose Asturias for its unique, authentic culture, being the part of Northern Spain where the Spanish holiday to escape from the heat of the rest of Spain. Parts of this region are like time and nature have stood still, so rich and real is its landscape and way of life. The open land, fields full of cows grazing, miles of orchards, four clear seasons with a milder climate than the UK. We live and work in the house opposite La Rondita so we are always around to help with questions and give advice. We have a small collection of animals (sheep and chickens), we grow some of our food and hope to grown even more over the coming years in this fertile and unspoilt land. Our lives have changed dramatically since coming here, for the better as we have new jobs, our Spanish has improved dramatically (and our children of course speak it better than ourselves), we have friends and have learnt that life doesn't always have to be frantic, a slower pace still gets the job done, especially if you take time to eat and drink well along the way as the locals definitely do.
Mrs Sara Aubrey purchased this House in 2005
Why Mrs Sara Aubrey chose Fuentes
We came here on holiday in 2004 for the first time, as a family. We were here for two weeks in Spring and it rained a lot. But we were enchanted and captivated by its lush, natural beauty. We had already decided to move from the UK and realised we had found what we were looking for here.After hunting for what seemed like an age and viewing so many other properties (some real wrecks, full of natural 'character'), we finally managed to find two houses for sale, separate yet close by, one for us and one as a rental. Plenty of land for growing fruit and veg, animals and adventures! Close by to a local town, where our children could go to school, located in a traditional village alongside the River Sella. Very curious neighbours who were overjoyed to see that we had brought children to live in the village! Several years on and the entailing peace, beauty and tranquillity still convince that we chose well!!
What makes this House unique
When we first visited Fuentes (the village where we live), we knew it was perfect because is is located near both the coast and the Picos de Europa National Park - La Rondita is equidistant! It is a five minute walk from the River Sella, where we have our own river beach, perfect for an end of day swim or even a trip to the beach without the car! La Rondita is very private, set down a lane, completely detached and with its own private garden, overlooking our orchard. The house is very comfortable; we have tried to give it a 'home away from home' feel and it has a garden terrace with fantastic mountain views, a fully equipped kitchen, 24 hour WiFi, a flat-screen TV with many films and TV programmes available in English. From the house various mountain and forest walks are possible, you can walk to a bar and two restaurants plus we have a train station in the village for trips to the coast or cities without the car. The location is not too isolated, quiet and peaceful yet only 5 km (8 minutes by car), from the nearest town with supermarkets, doctors and hospital, many great restaurants and bars, even a couple of Michelin starred eateries. Airports and ports and also close by.
