Casa da Cabaza

O Incio, Lugo
Bed & Breakfast

Well off the main road and through ancient woods, this B&B with garden, lake and lively owners is great for hikers and peace-seekers


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A little gem of a place with energetic owners who care passionately for the land and their community. Two 100-year-old buildings share a courtyard – the owners live in one and your B&B bedrooms are in the other; all around you is woodland and total peace. There’s a communal dining and seating area for guests with a wooden bar which is also used for breakfasts of cooked garden apples with cinnamon, local yogurt and cheeses, freshly baked bread and homemade jams. Sietske and Tariq have four cats, two dogs and two horses – they also manage the land based on permaculture-inspired principles. The garden has plenty of places to sit in the sunshine among trees, bushes and flowers, beyond is the paddock for the horses and a vast lake which you can walk around under ancient oaks. Beamed bedrooms have recycled furniture and the walls are adorned with fine art photographs; bathrooms are small but functional. Vegetarian meals or light tapas can be booked in advance and there are plenty of places to eat just a quarter of an hour away. Lugo is 45 minutes and the Ribeira Sacra wine region is a 30-minute drive away and well worth exploring.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Sietske Meerloo

  • While staying at Casa da Cabaza, you can disconnect from your busy life. Unwind and relax in our tranquil gardens, spend your time reading or writing, go for walks around the lake or more energetic forest hikes directly from our gate.
  • Within an hour's drive are the cities of Lugo and Ourense. Lugo is famous for its intact Roman walls that one can walk on, circling the old town. Ourense, a medieval city to the south, offers relaxing thermal springs on the banks of the river Miño.
  • While staying with us, don't miss discovering the Ribeira Sacra. The wine growing terraces cling to the banks of two magnificent rivers, the Sil and Miño, and were originally built by the Romans. Great wine and fabulous views guaranteed.
  • Activities in the area close by include: swimming and sun bathing along the river beaches, horse trekking, walking the numerous forest trails, a day on the Camino de Santiago, mountain biking, golfing and more.
