You are in the wilds of Galicia, where rolling green hills and little hedged roads make you feel instantly at home. Sue is from Cambridgeshire and together with her husband has transformed an ancient farmhouse on the Camino Primitivo – what a spot! – into a quietly luxurious B&B. The house is beautiful, the barns are rustic, and gardens are on their way. You are in a small hamlet where the farmer walks his cows to the meadow each morning; wind turbines hum on the hills, opposite is a neighbour’s huerta, and beyond, civilisation in the form of Palas de Rei – a six-mile drive. Kim and Sue have restored with no expense spared. The furniture is ‘white oak’, the oak floors are beautiful, most of the art is contemporary and the lighting is top-notch. Downstairs is an atmospheric sitting room with a wood-burning stove, and a dining room on two levels with tables for two; enjoy a drink or tapas in the gatehouse first. The views are splendid from wherever you are, even from the bedroom on the ground floor. Mattresses are fabulous, bedding delicious, you have iPod docks, DVD players, safes and free WiFi.
