Belén is an english teacher, and enjoys giving advice about Salamanca, as well as I, Pablo, who speak english, french and german, and have studied tourism. I have spent more than two months in different Refuges along the Saint James' Way, helping pilgrims as a volunteer to feel at ease and to rest. We would both be delighted helping you enjoy your stay in Salamanca. We both are impressed by this town, although we were not born here. Belén grew up in Lugo, I grew up in Madrid.
Pablo purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Pablo chose Salamanca
Because we fell in love when we saw it at the first time, even if it needed to be completely rebuilt. The distribution we only had to change slightly and the impressive terrace convinced us.
What makes this Apartment unique
The impressive terrace, with a superb view specially by night, convinced us and is up to now really unique. I don`t think our hospitality is unique, but it's very good. If I have spent almost three months as a volunteer in refuges of the Saint Jame's Way, helping without being paid, this indicates some hospitality, I think. And Belén has the same character.
