In June 2004, Dr. Eva Wong, head of Zhen’s Xuankong and Sanyuan lineages of K’an-yu (Feng Shui), made an assessment of the property and qualified it as “a place of healing” in view of the mountains. El Manso is suitable and has been used for small group retreats and gatherings.
The main home is a traditional Asturian four-bedroom country house (master bed room with bathroom en-suite), with 2 bathrooms and classic well-preserved chestnut wooden floors.
There is also a living room with fireplace, a big kitchen with pantry, a traditional “galleria” with a spectacular panoramic view of the Sueve mountains to the North-East, and a library.
