Below is a selection of comments from guests at Casa Quirós:
Review from Sean Kenny and Conor Cussel who stayed for two weeks in April 2015:
Sean says ‘We stayed at Casa Quiros for two weeks in April. The house is very comfortable and well-appointed, with a good kitchen and really nice bedrooms. There is a wood burning stove which really pumps out the heat and even slightly chilly mountain nights were fine. We spent our rest days chilling on the balcony and the downstairs patio area, which was sunny and with great views. The nearest climbing areas at Quiros are just fifteen minutes walk away and Taverga is only 20 mins drive. It’s also a quick and easy drive from the airport – less than an hour and main roads for a lot of the journey. Richie and Mary were excellent, they gave us a lot of help on choosing suitable crags for the weather conditions which was really helpful. The climbing here is very good, lots of excellent and totally unpolished limestone. The crags are very quiet too and it’s a really lovely place to climb.’
Conor says ‘ Really enjoyed our stay at Casa Quiros – its a great place to stay in a fantastic and quiet area. The House – really well fitted and comfortable, with a great terrace and patio/garden to enjoy your evenings and rest days! Bathroom and kitchen both very modern and a lovely place to hang out! The Climbing – Brilliant. Hundreds of quality routes on fantastic rock right through the grade spectrum. All angles and styles accounted for, although being good on slabs and vert faces will be useful. The Hosts – Rich and Mary were great – really enjoyed all the advice on where to climb and route recommendations. Thanks!
Review from Frido and Henriëtte. (Netherlands) who stayed 8, 9, 10th April 2015
We stayed three days in April 2015. Casa Quirós provided us all the comforts of home. The garden and balcony are in the sun all day long, perfect for drinking a beer after a day’s climbing.
All the climbing sectors at Quirós are within walking distance of the house.
Our host Richie provided us with info on the best climbing routes in the area. All the crags we went to had magnificent views as well as perfect rock and protection. We consider Asturias to be one of the best places we have climbed and we’ll certainly be back some time.
Review van Frido en Henriëtte. (Nederland) -
We zijn drie dagen gebleven in april 2015.
Casa Quirós voorzag in alle gemakken van thuis. Tuin en balkon liggen de hele dag in de zon, perfect om een biertje te drinken na een dag klimmen.
Alle sectoren van Quirós bevinden zich op loopafstand van het huisje.
Onze gastheer Richie die tevens de klimtopo van het gebied heeft geschreven gaf ons alle info over de beste routes op de diverse wanden. Bij alle wanden die we hebben bezocht was het uitzicht adembenemend, de rots totaal niet afgeklommen en de behaking optimaal. Asturië is één van de mooiste plekken waar we hebben geklommen en we komen zeker een keer terug.
Review from Nicola and her partner Roger who stayed for 3 weeks in March 2015:
“We turned back the clock. Aciera is the rural village idyll where the 10 cows outnumber the cars. The stone walled cottage is charming and full of character. Stunning views, a very warm welcome and a fabulous location for climbing and walking. It was great to be able to walk to the crag from the house and to find a wide selection of unpolished routes to go at. The routes themselves were all very good too and it was refreshing to climb on uncrowded crags.” Nicola Bassnett – March 2015
