FERRY & HOTEL
Gran Hotel del Sella, Ribadesella
Spain > Asturias > RIBADESELLA
The lovely resort of Ribadesella lies on two sides of an estuary - one half has a fine sandy beach and the other has the pretty old town and fishing harbour. A famous international canoe race is held the first weekend of August each year when a festival atmosphere takes over with plenty of eating, drinking and dancing. Alongside the lovely beach is the Gran, a hotel of two parts: an older villa - originally the Prince of Asturias' holiday home - with elegant lounges and staircases, and a more modern extension with panoramic lift, restaurant & café bar. There is also an outdoor seawater swimming pool (June-Sept) and a spa centre (charges apply). Sea view rooms available. Garage parking approx. 10€/night.
