Casa do Pepe (Sleeps up to 7) and La Casita (Sleeps 2), are fully restored traditional stone buildings while the self-contained Granny Flat (Sleeps 4 or 5) forms the ground floor of the owners house. The homes are located in the very quiet hamlet of Castrotañe with views across the river Sil to the distant mountains. The village is close to local facilities with golf, fishing, swimming pools, childrens' playgrounds, river beach, bars, restaurants and shops all within a five mile radius. The closest restaurant/ bar/shop is less than 2km away. The village of Castrotañe is in the Ribeira Sacra, one of the most beautiful parts of South Lugo and Ourense. The area provides interest to walkers, wine lovers, wild life enthusiasts, architecture, bird watchers, fishermen and golfers to name a few. Further afield, Ourense with its old city and famous thermal baths, is 45km, Lugo, a walled city, 65km, the coast a 2 hour drive, Santiago de Compostella 1.5 hours by car (longer on foot!) and Portugal too is only a day trip away.

First visit to Galicia, and what a treat. Completely different to other areas of Spain we have been to, but the holiday was made by the beautiful Casa do Pepe. Sympathetic and high quality barn conversion with all possible amenities. We were very lucky that our 2-week holiday coincided with a heatwave, which gave us the opportunity to visit. River cruises, local towns and villages, cycling, walking and relaxing in the sun, plus lovely local food and wine in bars and restaurants in the area. Thanks to Penelope for making our stay so lovely.
Es una casita de piedra y madera con todo lo necesario para disfrutarla. Se ajusta perfectamente a las fotos publicadas. Está ubicada en una pequeña aldea con 2 vecinos, encantadores, pero que prácticamente no ves.El entorno está lleno de sendero.. .y los pueblos grandes quedan muy cerca. Intentaremos repetir, SEGURO!!!!!
