Tazones is a picture-perfect fishing village and an outstanding spot to enjoy the art of slow living while warming up sipping fish soup

Tazones, Asturias - Monica R Goya

Located in eastern Asturias, less than an hour from the airport or Oviedo, this charming village is said to be the place where a very young Charles V Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain set foot on Spanish soil for the first time in 1517.

These days Tazones is a bright looked after little village where the colourful houses facing the seaside only add charm to the place. Life here goes at a different pace. Slow mornings in Tazones are made of salty air and murmuring water. Days are easily memorable when you get lost around the narrow paved streets, when you seem to discover a pretty secret on every corner, when every neighbour says "buenos días (good morning)" with a smile and when you can have a truly spectacular fresh fish soup for an affordable price. Fish that has probably been captured less than twenty-four hours before you eat it.

Life probably doesn't get better than that.
