Sophisticated and Charming
Sophisticated and charming is not an easy combination to achieve. My husband and I just spent 2 weeks at this amazing property as a base for exploring Galicia. Every attention to detail was taken care of in this well thought out home. We were met by Jose who went over everything in the house for us. We were also welcomed by home baked cake and cookies from Ana, champagne and chocolate. Coffee was supplied for us too. The home is even better than the pictures and it is very quiet despite being in the middle of town. I wish we lived closer! We cannot wait to return to Casa de Carmen, Corcubion and to visit with Ana y Jose. We are already missing them!
Even before we left home Ana and Jose were very helpful finding out information about buses for us. Jose also met us at the bus stop which was so kind. The house is beautiful, comfortable and clean. It has everything you need and more, including a beautiful homemade cake, biscuits and very nice cava! We were made to feel so welcome and really enjoyed our stay.
Corcubion is a charming, relaxing small town with spectacular scenery and lovely walks, and everyone is so friendly that it doesn't matter if you don't speak too much Spanish - by the end of your holiday you will know un poquito Galician!
Our favourite restaurant was the Degustacion de marisco MercaMaris where the chef shared with us her recipe for her clams and sauce. Also O Pirata in Fisterra is worth a visit. We did not use the beaches as it was mostly raining but Quenxe looked the best option.
We would most definitely come back and when we do, we want to stay at Casa De Carmen. Thank you Jose and Ana for a most hospitable welcome.
Beautiful Hide Away on Galician Coast
We (two mature experienced travellers) stayed in Ana & Jose's cottage for one week in late September. It is beautiful, decorated to details, comfortable, homey, close to everything in the area, including several beaches and Fisterra. Do walk Carnota beach, and park in Fisterra and walk up to the lighthouse.
Jose met us and provided lots of information on the area, activities, driving distances etc. There was a lovely orange cake Ana made, a bottle of Cava and water and milk to start our stay. Soap and shampoo, laundry items and everything you could possibly think of. They are only a phone call, or msg away, and were available if we needed them. Both are very hospitable, knowledgeable, and great hosts.
The house itself is about 400 years old and they have taken the time to finish every detail to keep the era alive in the house and make it very livable and comfortable. Even electronics.
Thank you to both Ana & Jose for a wonderful week in our tour of Spain. You are both very special.
Hemos estado el pasado fin de semana ahí,lo hemos pasado muy bien, la casa es muy bonita y José nos ha aconsejado muy bien lo que ver y dónde comer por la zona. Y los detalles de bienvenida buenísimos.muchas gracias por todo 👍
Queridos Ana y José,
Muchísimas gracias por todo!
Disfrutamos la casa de Carmen durante la toda nuestra estancia en Corcubion.
La casa es maravillosa y muy cariñosa, de verda. Me sentí como la Marquesa de Santillana en el aposento en la segunda planta. Además, nos gusto el pequeñito patio donde tomamos el aire fresco cada noche y mañana oiendo los pajaritos. Las chimeneas fueron muy útiles para las noches de la lluvia.
Abrazos y besos!!!!!!!!LL!
Elena y Dmitry.
Fabulous place in heart of costal Galica
Steps from camino. Carmin's is Beautiful place where the owners have thought of everything. Comfortable, great kitchen and beautiful terrace. From here there is great hiking, beaches and amazing drives along the coast and end of the world. Do not miss the sunset! Great local restaurants in Corcubion. Beautiful town.
We propose to visit Casa de Carmen in Galicia and specifically an area still little known in which we have the pleasure of living called the Costa da Morte. It is located in the westernmost part of Galicia, facing the Atlantic Ocean, in the province of A Coruña. The name of Costa da Morte is not very clear, but it may be due to one of the following reasons, the first, and that seems the most real, it would be that it takes its name from the continuous shipwrecks that occurred in this area so mistreated by the storms and that continue to produce the death of fishermen and sailors, the other, more poetic and with which we identify more is the one that refers to this end of the Earth, the place where the Sun dies.
It is an area not yet fully discovered by tourism, although some of us are lucky enough to enjoy it for some time. In it we will find beaches, mountains, trails, villages, routes ... in which it is worth spending some days and even vacations. We suggest some places of interest to visit.
The first would be the climb to Mount Pindo, a hiking trail of approximately four hours of medium level that will take us to its highest point, the Moa, there we can enjoy spectacular views. It is the most mythical of the Galician mountains, with its legends, sacrifices, excommunications, petroglyphs, fertility rites, fortresses, ... we will also contemplate the strange forms of its rocks in which we will guess all kinds of monsters and animals.
Very close to this mountain we have a quiet little town called Ézaro, in it is the mouth of the Xallas river that rushes to the sea in a waterfall 40 meters high.
A beautiful town is Corcubión with a historic center considered one of the best preserved in the entire Costa da Morte. We recommend that you visit it in the second half of July, since it is the celebration of Carmen, patron saint of sailors and also the medieval market in which their neighbors are fully involved dressing in period clothes.
And speaking of towns with a remarkable historical-artistic center we will mention Muros, which preserves the sea air and in which we will find arcades, narrow alleys, traditional houses, cruises and squares. A good entertainment is to read the names of its streets, namely: Hope, Patience, Loneliness, Rest, Bitterness, Retreat, Health ...
Carnota beach with its endless kilometers to walk, at its entrance is the Carnota granary (typical Galician construction used to store the cultivated grain) and today is a national tourist monument.
Villa de Camariñas, with its famous bobbin lace, from its lighthouse Vilán leaves a route of 19 kilometers with beautiful views and that runs along a well-conditioned dirt track that takes us to Xaviña and Arou. In it we will see the Cemetery of the English (place where the 175 died by the shipwreck of the British ship "Serpent"), the beaches of Thirteen and the one of Reira ending in the fishing village of Camelle.
The Faro Fisterra, we have reached the end of the World, here we will enjoy its sunset, place full of all kinds of pagan beliefs and rites and in which the Romans (s. II a. C.) were overwhelmed to see the huge Sun disappear into the waters. According to legend beyond this end inhabited spooky creatures ... We have reached the end of our route in which the ancients believed to guess the end of the known world and that it is also the end of the Camino de Santiago since many pilgrims have always decided to prolong their trip here for several reasons, all different.
To regain strength we can visit one of the restaurants in this town, we propose some clams and a grilled sea bass accompanied by a good alvariño. Do you feel like coming?
