    Vacation among Spain's pixies and pilgrims

    Nestled in the A Coruna province in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, the municipality of Ames offers visitors a break from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Sandwiched between the rocky capes of the coast and the gently rising mountains of the Galician Massif, the area is made up of small, historic towns sprinkled among picturesque valleys and forests, where elves and fairies are rumored to roam free. An Ames vacation rental also puts you at the crossroads of 2 of Spain's biggest pilgrimage routes, so bring your walking shoes.

    Strap on those shoes and walk, walk, walk

    Two pilgrimage routes making up the world-famous Camino de Santiago walk meet up in Ames – the Camino de Fisterra and the Camino Portugues. The capital of Ames, Bertamirans, hosts a major pilgrimage festival every summer. In Bertamirans, you'll also find a more leisurely river walk along the Sar, as well as the home stadium of the Bertamirans Futbol Club. There are also plenty of up-and-coming shops, bars, and restaurants to explore (on foot, of course). Bikers will want to visit the coastal town of A Coruna, where the 13-km Paseo Marítimo bike path runs along the coast.

    Where the architecture is pazo-tively splendid

    Pazos – traditional Galician manor houses built in the 17th to 19th centuries – dominate the small towns throughout A Coruna. Near your Ames vacation rental, you'll find Pazo de Quintans and Pazo da Peregrina, just to name a few. Other historic sights include the ancient Roman Bridge of Pontemaceira, with its picturesque low stone arches, and the Iglesia De San Tome De Ames, a neoclassical masterpiece from 1772. The port city of A Coruna is known for its medieval Old Town and the Tower of Hercules, a Roman lighthouse that offers sweeping views of the sea.

    It's always pleasant deep down in the valley

    Ames' protected valley location results in mild winters and warm summers. Even in the coldest months, you'll never need a winter coat at your Ames vacation rental. The warmest summer months of June to September see highs in the 70s, which drop only slightly during the rest of the year, hovering in the mid-50s to 60s. Lows all year round are only typically about 10 to 15 degrees below the highs, meaning you don't have to deal with extreme weather changes on any given day. You'll see some rain between October and May, but almost none in the summer.

    A pretty province of ports, plains, and peaks

    The Province of A Coruna starts as an isthmus jutting into the Atlantic Ocean, full of rocky capes, sandy beaches, and islands dotting the shore. Moving inland, you pass through a stunning landscape of the plains and valleys of Ames. The capital city of Bertamirans sits on the winding Sar River. Continue further inland and you'll hit the mountain ranges of the Galician Massif. The mountain forest are said to be inhabited by ghosts, fairies, elves, and witches. If you're not lucky enough to spot any, there's plenty of down-to-earth wildlife roaming around as well.
