What can I say about this place and the host Mercedes, she is so kind and helped me out tremendously with some banking issues I was having. Went above and beyond....so nice to a solo woman walking the Camino.....very comfortable room and bathroom, very clean, great dinner and wine. Highly recommend and would most definitely stay here again.

Mercedes is a fabulous hostess, great welcome, delicious dinner. good coffee at breakfast. The other guests relaxed after dinner in the evening sunshine drinking wine by the river, truly magical experience in this lovely old mill house. The river splashing past our window was a perfect scene to send us to sleep. Don't pass up an opportunity to stay at... More

At first this place was very hard to find, especially after walking the 33kms from Leon in 30 degree heat. But if you walk through the town of Villavante, over the bridge and out of town (follow the Camino path), you will see a timber sign pointing left. Walk for another 200 metres and you will see another sign which... More

The miilhhouse was exceptional, Mercerdes and her husband and family were very welcoming, free drink and snacks on arrival. The rooms were clean and the dinner was really nice - great soup. Can get picked up and when you leave the camino is about 50 meters away, brilliant. Don't miss the chance to stay there.

We stayed here as part of put Camino trip. The lady of the house, Mercedes was very welcoming & offered us a drink (vino tinto) & snacks when we arrived. We found the guest house to be clean & the bedroom big. Dinner was served to all who stayed there in the family dining area by Mercedes & her husband.... More

After a long day's walk from Leon which included getting very wet!, I found this wonderful place with the most wonderful hosts Mercedes and Maximo. After a very welcome cold beer I was shown to my wonderful room. The whole place is just full of stuff and decor that makes it both unique and makes it more like your ideal... More

Mercedes and Maximo can not be outdone. Their hospitality is the best we have ever experienced. The accommodations were great, the meals Mercedes and Maximo prepared were delicious. If you are walking El Camino de Santiago and want to take a break from the hostals and albergues, this is the place to do it. I highly recommend this place.

We had such a delightfully unique experience at Molino Galochas. After arriving we enjoyed a delicious home cooked dinner and then slept in the "Honeymoon Cottage". We watched the pilgrims depart to continue their walk on the Camino, before enjoying an excellent breakfast. Mercedes, our host, was so enthusiastic and so eager to help and please. She provided us with... More

Mercedes and Maximo were superb hosts. When we arrived after a 31+km walk with a large blister I was offered a cool drink, encouraged to relax and soak my feet in a basin of cool water. After a shower Maximo drove us to the Centro de Salud so that I could get my foot seen to. Mercedes took me back... More
