Gedrez is the capital of the new natural park "Fuentes del Narcea" and another natural park, "Reserva de Muniellos", is 10 min drive.
Traditional Asturian values (language, handcraft, music and gastronomy) as well as virgin nature (deers, bears, wolves and capercaillies) are still alive in this quiet village within a priceless natural environment.
by plane: to Asturias airport (easyjet from Stansted, among others) by boat: ferries to Santander (cantabria) from Plymouth or Portsmouth (Brittany Ferries) or direct to Gijón, Asturias, from Nantes-St.Nazaire, France.
Then hire a car, and aim for Cangas de Narcea. Gedrez is about 15 km beyond Cangas on the AS15.
Lovely for walking, wildlife - and depending on the season and the weather - skiing. Near at hand is Muniellos, Reserve of the Biosphere, home of bears and wolves, where you can walk all day (the entire route is quite tough, but you can just go along beside the river, and up to a glacial lake, if you´re not that fit). Admission restricted to 20 people a day, booking online at https://sede.asturias.es/portal/site/Asturias/menuitem.46a76b28f520ecaaf18e90dbbb30a0a0/?vgnextoid=c8e6799a28d4f010VgnVCM100000b0030a0aRCRD or ringing (from outside Spain) +34 985279100
