Immerse yourself in undiscovered Spain. A few kilometres from the little port of Camariñas, surrounded by trees and fields of maize, is a pretty 18th-century hamlet, a seven-room hotel. Designer Alberto from Madrid fell in love with it 40 years ago, did the place up, meticulously, and moved in with his chef son. Breakfasts are enjoyable and set you up for the day: tea, coffee, home-baked cakes, the ‘full English’ – and cornflakes! It’s a great little spot for those wishing to explore; the thrilling Costa da Morte is a stroll from the door, and Europe’s most westerly lighthouse. On rainy days – note the umbrellas by the door – there’s a large and luminous guest living room to retreat to, with games, books, card table, TV, an internet desk (fast broadband) and a fabulous fireplace. Seven bedrooms are spread between three buildings, one in the attic (watch your head), another on the ground floor. Stylish, rustic, luxurious, they come with excellent beds and drenching showers; four have baths. Restaurants and bars are 1.5kms away in Camariñas. Check out the night skies before you turn in.
