The
Experience

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.

Local points of interest from Sue Renkin

  • Santiago de Compostela a World Heritage Site since 1985, for centuries Santiago de Compostela has attracted visitors and pilgrims from all over the world. It is Galicia's most cosmopolitan city, but it takes it in it's stride, try the local food and wine.
  • Lugo is a city with a incredible Roman past, which is evident by its complete Roman Wall a World Heritage Site and its Roman Baths or its Roman Bridge. And do not forget to visit its Cathedral in the historic town centre with squares and bars all round.
  • A boat trip on the river Sil is a must, look in awe at the almost vertical river sides. Terraced by the Romans and they have been in constant use ever since to grow the grapes for the local Ribeira Sacra, a suburb wine that is worth sampling, one or two!
  • In Galicia, wine is a culture and art, fruit of a tradition that is thousands of years old. Rías Baixas, O Ribeiro, Ribeira Sacra, Valdeorras and Monterrei are the five denominations of origin that are currently protecting some of the world’s finest wines.
  • Here in Galicia you can find the best beach in the world. And it's not because we say so , but the The Guardian newspaper said so. We are referring to the Rodas Beach located on the Cíes islands. Only accessible by boat and in the summer months, a must go.
  • In Pontevedra everything is just a step away and there is so much to see. Genuine treasures, such as the collection of gold and silver pieces in the Museum, unique in Europe, with magnificent jewellery dating back 4,000 years. A truly unique experience.
