Close to everything, yet at the same time isolated enough to offer the traveller the tranquillity he or she is looking for.
As can be seen in the aerial picture on the right (click on it to enlarge) the village of Pancar is strategically placed to explore the west of Asturias. Only 5 Km away from the coast, a protected landscape, one can quickly reach the numerous beaches of the area or, in the opposite direction, the high mountains, the National Park of “Picos de Europa”. All of them with two common denominators: a rich and varied gastronomy and the possibility of practising every kind of sports activities.
