Asking for recs from those who know the area well or have travelled thru the area:
Three of us (food and wine buddies) will be heading to that area for 10days in late March 2012. We are flexible in terms of itineraries, and we will be renting a car. We like the Gijon/Oviedo area b/c we had heard that is an area that Spanish people go to vacation and we'd like to find great food/wine/cider environments that are off the beaten track. Hondarribia is a great little town that was reviewed by the New York Times, so we thought we might go there for a couple of days.
However, we would like to ask for suggestions in terms of towns/restaurants/food and wine shops/lodging gems that you might know of and recommend. We travel light, eat anything, and some of our best experiences have come from renting rooms in someone's home and sharing dinner/wine with them.
Your help is always appreciated and I promise I will write a summary of our trip on this board.
