La Palleira, is how we call this old barn that has recently been restored as an independent housing. It has two floors of 50sqm each. At the top floor there is a living room, a bedroom with double bed and a bathroom with tub. Downstairs is the kitchen-dining room, a second bedroom with twin beds and bathroom with shower. Inside the living room we have installed a double sofa bed so that la Palleira can accommodate up to 6 guests.
The bedrooms and bathrooms have natural light. Upstairs large windows replace the wood that formerly closed the barn providing views of the valley. The ceilings on both floors are made out with wood and floors with slate. The ground floor is built with thick stone walls and the result is a light and airy space in summer. The kitchen is perfectly equipped.
On the same site next to the Palleira is the Roxa House, also offered for vacational rentals to accommodate 4. In the immediate surroundings there is a garden, still in process of been planted but very nice. It's a great place for picnics and cookouts. There are tables and benches for outdoor dining. In all it’s a great place to enjoy nature and tranquility and well located to do cultural or gastro excursions.

Hi, we're 3 behind this holiday home, I'm Nuria, Sixto my husband and Clarisa our daughter who is now 11. We've lived abroad for many years, but we regularly came back to this wonderful valley. This unique place has drawn us, now since more than 25 years, providing both a genuine contact with nature and peace: one can breathe here the best of Galicia. We've recently restored an old farmer's house and barn that are both now available for rentals. It's been done in a simple, traditional way and using local materials. Our aim was to provide a comfortable home for visitors and we're happy with the result. We will employ every income in maintaining this setting and hope that this enchanted place will please our guests as much as it pleases us.
Nuria purchased this House in 2014
Why Nuria chose Monfero
What makes this Old Barn unique is its setting. The property comprises 15 acres of land (6 Has), a water mill, a small river island planted with hydrangeas, woods, paths and meadows. It is not uncommon to find animals of the forests and the vegetation is typically Atlantic, ferns and mosses in the shady banks of the river, meadow wildflowers, mushrooms in season and diversity of trees in the forests.
What makes this House unique
This recently restored Old Barn is located in a green valley in north western Spain, only 7miles to the seaside and 1h. drive to Santiago de Compostela. It’s a unique place to enjoy tranquility, nature and to discover the authentic Galicia; a lush region with a mild climate, offering spectacular sceneries, sandy beaches, good sailing and surf, great hiking, historic gardens, golf, and a famed gastronomy mainly based in seafood, meats and the best white wines of the country.

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
This Old Barn is located in the North of Galicia, somehow less touristic than the South, at a short 7 miles (12 kms.) from the spectacular scenery of the coast and beaches and not far away from medieval villages like Pontedeume or Betanzos, in both of which one can find markets, restaurants and shopping.
Galicia is not really large: the A9 motorway that runs from NE to SW allows easy touring to its monumental-towns. Pontevedra or Santiago de Compostela have both beautiful old quarters and an amazing gastronomic offer together with the best white wines in the country. Also A Coruña makes for another lovely excursion to visit the old town, the central market, the harbour or the Aquarium.
Besides, the coast offers sandy beaches and old fishing villages that are worth a visit like Redes, Ares or Cedeira. There are also historic gardens and spas in the area. In terms of sports, one can find the best sailing, golf and hiking routes like the one of the Natural Park Fragas do Eume, an ancient forest along the river Eume.
In all, Galicia is a wonderful region to enjoy a memorable holiday, with a temperate weather, sunny and warm in summer and variable the rest of the year, that never disappoints visitors.
