LD Lines

A new ferry service is starting on the 5th January 2014 between Poole in Dorset and Gijón in Asturias. It will be operated by LD Lines. This makes it much easier to bring your car with you when you come to stay at Granero del Burro, the self catering barn in Galicia. Gijón is much closer than Santander, where the Brittany Ferries service docks. Gijón is less than 2 hours away and most of the route is motorway. The prices are very reasonable and almost half the price of Brittany Ferries. The crossing is 25 hours!!

San Lorenzo beach, Gijón

Gijón itself is a great place with lots of interesting things to do and see. The San Lorenzo beach is a great city beach and runs along the full length of the city. Have a look here for more information. The Abba Hotel is a great place to stay if you want to spend a night in the city.
