Great place to stay if you're looking for a quiet holiday. La Casita was a comfortable well equipped cottage and Penelope is a very nice English lady who is always eager to make your stay as hassle free as possible. We would highly recommend this place to anyone, we had a great holiday, very relaxing. Galicia is very beautiful and thankfully untouched by mass tourism. Thank you Penelope xx

Thank you so much for your review and kind comments. It was a joy to have you staying here. Yes Galicia is very beautiful, and we are well placed to enable people to enjoy all of the region, and maybe evenpart of Portugal.
Quiet rural retreat.
Well restored clean and well equipped small dwelling. Lovely spot for a quiet holiday.
Maps and walk books for the local area provided.
Plenty of places of interest locally and some beautiful scenery.
Penelope is very welcoming and helpful.
Penelope's directions are excellent.
SatNav has problems (ours thinks the correct approach road is unmade - it isn't - and tried to send us via a farm track, fortunately blocked by a tractor. Switching off "avoid unpaved roads" cured this but remember to switch it back on!
Alternatively N32degrees 32.284minutes, W7degrees 37.012minutes takes you to the turn off for Castrotane.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your time here, you were wonderful guests and thank you for leaving the Casita in such a good state. Thank you also for putting these co-ordinates in your review. I will include them in my directions and hopefully they will direct people here without sending them on a wild goose chase.
Thank you again for your visit.
We had a superb 2 weeks in La Casita. Penelope is very welcoming and helpful - she provided food in the kitchen for our arrival as it was late at night, and is always on hand to answer questions. The setting of the property is tranquil and beautiful. The scenery in this area of Galicia ranges from the pretty to the spectacular - especially around the Rivers Sil and Mino. A boat trip along the Sil is a must. We also really enjoyed our trip to the Roman walls in Lugo.
I thoroughly recommend a stay in La Casita!
Thank you so much for your very kind review, and I am glad that you enjoyed yourselves. I know that I enjoyed having you to stay, and you will always be welcome here.
Un lugar de encuentro y convivencia con la naturaleza
En primer lugar decir, que la dueña del alojamiento es una persona entrañable y estupenda anfitriona.
Dese el primer momento nos hemos sentido como en casa.
El lugar te permite convivir en plena naturaleza lejos del ruido, estres, contaminación, etc.
La casa es pequeña pero acogedora. Nos sentimos cómodos, a gusto.
No concíamos esta zona y nos ha encantado. LA Ribeira Sacra es un lugar hermoso.
Reiterar nuestro agradecimiento a Penelopé, la dueña de "La Casita"
Gracias por sus comentarios muy amables sobre La Casita. Lo hice así que disfrute de su visita y me alegra que lo hizo también. Gracias por dejar la cabaña en tan buen estado, y tengo ganas de volver a darle la bienvenida en el futuro.
