Description

This 16th century Pazo (Galician's typical manor house) has been faithfully restored and is now a charming hotel with just 12 rooms. The manor house has always been lived in, and thus family life has also influenced the structure of the property. The last alteration, to convert the house into a hotel, has completely respected the original building.The property is surrounded by an old stone wall and has 40,000 square metres of garden, with 2 horreos (typical grain storage structures), a keep, a dovecot and a chapel.
Within this extensive property there are ideal spots for relaxed conversation, reading or walking. There are centuries-old trees and impressive varieties such as the chestnut tree in the plot in front of the dovecot
The main dining room is in the gallery leading from the main house to the chapel, with large windows on both sides giving a magnificent panoramic view of the estate. On the house's upper level is the current gallery, the old stables of the estate which have been completely refurbished and converted into wonderful guest rooms, each of which is named after a woman married to a male member of the Varela family, the owners since the 16th century. The rooms are decorated in warm colours and have full en-suite bathrooms, telephone and television.

Additional information

The Galician coastline is characterized by high cliffs and deep inlets (estuaries). Two sections are usually differentiated: the Rías Altas (Cedeira, Ortiguiera, O Barqueiro, Viveiro, Foz and Ribadeo amongst others), and the Rías Baixas or Bajas (Muros and Noia, Arousa, Vigo and Pontevedra). Between the two areas there are the Estuaries of "A Costa da Morte" (Corcubión, Camariñas and Corme and Laxe) as well as the Estuaries of the Ártabro Golf (Ferrol, Ares and Betanzos and A Coruña). The region can be divided into two areas: inland Galicia and coastal Galicia, that are separated by a mountain range known as Galicia's backbone. The mountains tend to be small and undulating, separated by two valleys, lying in the following three areas: The first area borders Asturias and Leon, and has the highest mountains including, Pena Trevinca (2,095 m), Penarrubia (1,826 m) and Cabeza de Manzaneda (1,778 m). The second lies in the middle of the region surrounded by lower mountains, and the third on the coast, with the estuaries as the renowned highlight. Galician rivers have large volumes of water flowing through them and naturally head towards either the Atlantic or the Cantabrian sea. The rivers that flow into the Atlantic are larger and more abundant, including the Miño river (the most important) and its tributary the river Sil. Other notable rivers include the Ulla, the Tambre or the Eume.
