Country Cottage

This country cottage is located in the parts of the Santiago de Capela parish, in the heart of the Forgoselo Mountain Range. It has been restored in perfect harmony with the rural environment in which it becomes perfectly integrated. The house is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, which matches the green and mild countryside with the wild mountain, where a deep silence reigns and paves the way for the most calm and longed break.
The house, a traditional stone construction, was fully restored using fine woods, after a fire which destroyed it. It was restored with the same care by those "mulleriñas", mistresses who also took care of an orphan who is today the grandfather of the owner's family.
This stone house has two floors. On the ground floor you can find the reception, two halls, the dining room and two charming rooms, one of them with an open fireplace and a library to enjoy reading.

In this floor are also located two double rooms with full bathroom, one of them equipped for disabled.
On the first floor you can find six double rooms with full bathroom along the corridor, which ends on a beautiful balcony.
In addition to a pleasant stay the visitors can enjoy a regional cooking with traditional dishes and home pastry.
The dinning room and the sitting rooms on the ground floor can be used for business lunches and meetings.
Beside the house you can find a "horreo" and "bodegas", typical constructions of this area, made of stone and wood.
From the rooms you can see green meadows and groves without end.
At only 100 meters from the house you can find a "fraga", the area surrounding a brook, and an old mill, now abandoned, where long ago the bread was milled.
Close to the house there is a cattle breeding farm where the visitors can take part in the everyday life.
The house is located in a privileged environment, located 12 km from the beaches and 4 km from the Caaveiro Monastery, placed into the vast expanse of the Fragas del Eume Natural Park, one of the last Atlantic forests in Europe, with animal and vegetable species unique in the world.
In addition to the peace that this lovely spot offers there is a range of possibilities for Nature lovers: walking tours in the Forgoselo mount, through the "fragas" or "muiños" routes. And horse riding and canoeing near.
