Holidays with Children
This small Asturian village is a guarantee of serenity for adults, but for children every day is a series of fun adventures and amazing discoveries.
It is the perfect environment for children to interact and express themselves naturally while inadvertently absorbing all the simplicity and beauty of a rural world that will surely provide a special balance in the construction of their personality.
The municipal swimming of Quiros pools are open throughout the summer period
It is common for children during holiday periods to make friends with the other children who spend those days here and together they turn the center of the town or its various recreational areas into happy play settings.
If the holidays are in summer, very close is the swimming pool of Bárzana, the capital of the council, which is open throughout the summer period.
In particular, in addition to the various resources that the vegetal and rustic environment makes available to their inexhaustible imagination, if there is something that children will not easily forget, it is direct contact with the various species of animals that await them here and that will surely be a referent of those vacations that they spent in the town, those vacations in the center of the Asturian nature. And this is so because, in addition to the various animals in the environment, the Prieto Rural Houses have a farm with a variety of animal species in which children and adults spend great moments of fun, either feeding them, walking in the merry-go-round of the donkey, riding a pony, running after the jumping dwarf goats, etc. [More information farm of the rural houses]
But in addition to the everyday in this unique village, in the vicinity there are many activities possible for children to maintain a continuous succession of emotions and never get bored, such as:
Hiking, Walking or Cycling with Children
