Gijón is a modern city in the Asturias region of northern Spain – the region has a family friendly feel and is filled with lots of parks and playgrounds for the children. Car hire from Calle Anselmo Cifuentes in Gijón will suit water babies – here you can go sailing, diving and dolphin watching from the Estación Náutica Gijón Costa Verde.
Also water based, but a lot more chilled out, is the Talasoponiente Spa, which is easy to get to from central Gijón. The spa has three separate areas: one for relaxation, one for play, and one for sport – all in a beautiful location by the sea.
The Asturias region has a concentration of National Parks, many of which has been named as Biospheres, and are the home of endangered species. Car hire from Calle Anselmo Cifuentes in Gijón could allow you to explore the National Park of Redes, half an hour away from the city. The park contains mountains, and some rare species of trees, including the white oak.
City types can rent a car from Gijón and make the short trip to Oviedo, a cultural centre that's both modern and historical. It hosts an International Opera Festival, and has great shopping facilities. The history of the city can be clearly seen in its architecture.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
