Very comfortable overnight in this spacious house
The town itself has little to offer - we were walking and only one bar in town with limited menu
very comfortable room and bathroom. Beautiful roof terrace with views of surrounding countryside.Although we arrived early with dirty boots, the owner helped with laundry and provisions.
Easy to get to from Placencia using the N630 which runs parallel to the A66
Luckily the other guest were quiet because there is little sound absorbtion in the property. Your kids might just disturb others!
The building has been converted to a hostal. The kitchen, just inside the front door, has all that one could wish for, including the launderette. The lady 'keyholder' lives next door...... and that reminds me, pull the front door when opening the lock, if you don't, the lock won't turn.
poor breakfast, very basic and limited choice.
A very comfortable, friendly place to stay after a hard days walk.
A comfortable quiet room with lots of hot water for a bath after a long hard days walking. A charming village. The owner was very helpful.
Super looking building, very well equipped
There is a well equipped kitchen area with a dishwasher, cooker and washing machine. As the dishwasher was in use by some fellow travellers, we decided we could use the washing machine to freshen up our kit. The housekeeper (the owner's mother) went off on one about how we had broken it and the owner did have to remove the machine door to retrieve pants and socks but this was a machine fault and not ours. Fortunately my colleague's Spanish is good and so he could give the owner the accurate story of what we did. Instructions for use of equipment in multiple languages would help as would a notice asking other guests to be quieter when leaving at 6:30am!
Newly built or refurbished hostel but maintains traditional style finished to a very high standard. Probably one of the best nights sleep because of the silent ceiling fan keeping air circulating without making the rattles and noise associated with air conditioning. Great base to visit the Roman ruins at Caparra that are about 6km away and the stop is worth a short detour from the Camino. Found a brilliant little bar in the village where we had the best night of the break watching football on TV with six locals The whole thing was 'Benzabueno' ( a local wordplay on the name of Karim Benzama, Real Madrid - you probably had to be there!)
Everything was perfect whilst we were there.
Lovely quiet village. Accommodation superb. This is not for people who want the high life. It is very quiet, village has one small bar and one small shop. If you like peace and quiet stay here, otherwise go elsewhere. Staff and locals very friendly.
I'd happily stay here again.
My inability to speak Spanish but that's my issue not theirs.
Beautiful property well located near main Autovia but in a nice wee quiet village. Manager owner has no English but no problem just added to the fun. Shared use of kitchen with others for dinner, minimarket next door for supplies and breakfast was between 8 and 10. We contemplated staying another night and will use again if in area. Enjoyed a stroll around before dinner in this most picturesque wee town of about 250 souls.
Read if you have children
First time I am so ambivalent about making the review. Facility is great in a traditional, authentic village. Was hard to find but was really worth it. Great value for money. However , arrived 7:30 pm with children and woman was not excited , even did not want to open the place for us , as I think was worried about having children over. This is although the space was completely empty and kids are not so young ... and never mentioned any worry about kids in booking.com . She called another woman to come and take us to another case which I guess less fancy . But in the end when she realized I am quite persistent she gave in - with the help of a neighbor who speaks english. Otherwise not even one word of English. In the morning when she realized we are not the monsters she was afraid of, she made an effort to put a smile on her face . The night before all her mumbling , was all sound like cursing. Anyhow, and other than that it was a beautiful stay.
Idyllic village stay
Maybe something savory at breakfast would be good
Verymodern inside with a huge atrium and bedrooms leading off two mezzanines. Very helpful hostess.Spanish only but the washing got done and she was very amenable. Because it is closed up to keep out heat there was a smell of mould.even though it is spotless.
Characterful, clean village location
Staff could have been friendlier and more welcoming.
Lovely small friendly village. Room was clean and modern-rustic.
Luxury on the Via de la Plata Camino
Best value for money of 10 Casa Rurals we stayed at in last 3 weeks. Stunning Terrace Views. Within 50m of the Via da la Plata Camino. Very helpful people.
