The
Experience

The atmosphere of religiosity is tangible: the fine old manor, lost among fields of maize and wooded glades, was built by a member of the Inquisition in 1672. Later it became the school that José attended as a boy; now he and his son-in-law Tito have one of the friendliest and most authentic family-run hotels in this corner of Galicia. The house is dimly lit and labyrinthine, full of stuffed animals and antiques; the vast sitting room has a ‘lareira’ (inglenook) and chunky chestnut beams, the dining room is lovely, with a gallery; lighting is subdued and the bar is deliciously cosy. Some bedrooms are on the ground floor; a granite staircase leads to more above. Those on the first floor have classic Spanish beds and a certain decadent flair, some with hydromassage baths, but the simplest and sweetest, reached by a winding wooden stair, are in the attic. Tito’s wife is chef; eggs come from the hens, fresh fish from Malpica, and the locals like to dine here. Fine views from the daisy-filled lawn, a new tennis court and pool, bikes to borrow and all the rugged beauty of the north coast.

Reviews

Wonderful week at Pazo do Souto in early June. Relaxed and informal but all staff were very professional and attentive. Tito and the team were hugely hospitable and helpful, such that after a day out sight-seeing it felt like ‘coming home’. Great room with a lovely balcony looking out over the grounds. The restaurant was excellent –high quality ingredients, imaginatively cooked and presented and very fairly priced. We were genuinely sad to leave – the charm and warmth of the hospitality will stay with us for a long time. We will definitely return when we are next in the area.

We are just back from our fourth visit and it just keeps getting better. Lovely room, quiet location and so much to see and do. The food is delicious with an incredible menu and all the produce locally sourced. Jose's garden produces an incredible array of fresh fruit and vegetables. Visit local beaches where you may be the only person - there are so many to choose from. Spectacular drives along a stunning coastline indented by deep estuaries with stunning views. The staff are very friendly and informative and I highly recommend it for a holiday far off the usual tourist track.

I booked the luxury suite for my husband's birthday. We booked because we had stayed there before. WOW, worth it- the luxury suite is exactly as it says.. The staff are brilliant, made our stay very special. Thank you and we'll be back. I highly recommend you stay here..

Allison, Coruna

A unique and fascinating glimpse into Galician life and culture. Lovely tasty evening meal accompanied by delicious house red. Large room with all the comforts , the staff were attentive and very informative telling us about places to visit in the area. We felt at home, relaxed in the bar and would highly recommend this hotel.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Maria del Carmen Taibo Pombo

  • We're 2km from Carballo town, a little village lying within the triangle formed by the cities of La Coruña, Santiago de Compostela and Cape Finisterre, three of the best known places in Galicia.
  • Pristine beaches are only 8km away; the Razo and Baldaio beaches have Blue Flags. The nature reserve is, without doubt, the most interesting natural and ecological area of Carballo, and the one that attracts the most visitors.
  • Visit the fishing village of Malpica (12km); it boasts the best percebes (goose barnacles) in the world. Try these, and all sorts of other seafood, at local prices in any of the little tapas bars and restaurants.
  • The mythical and legendary Cape Finisterre, the end of the western trail of the “Camino de Santiago”, is a 40-minute drive from here. You can visit whole the coast - Costa de la Muerte - from here! (I recommend that you do!)
  • It's a 40-minute drive to Santiago de Compostela, a World Heritage Site: see the Cathedral, wander the streets, try the food, discover the history...
