Savoury lunch

Excellent host, great food, we left the place happy and satisfied. We chose salads for lunch, the pheasant and the cod. We received huge plates of salad with excellent variety, bringing a big smile to our faces. Indulge in the desserts, worth the sin!!

Bierzo is also the home of one of the best producers in the region, Palacios, who make extraordinary wines in Corullon. Having tasted in their cellars, we went around the corner to this hidden little gem. No menus, no fuss, just beautifully cooked homemade food, lots of locally grown herbs and vegetables in a very relaxing, simple environment. We wish... More

I'm in my way of "El Camino" with my father and father in law and not only the accommodation was excellent, the food was a great variety of the typical regional exquisite and when you have all of this components and you mix with Herminio El camino turn more than familiar with his treatment, tips and adventures.

The restaurant is kind of hidden ... If you walk by you would not realize what kind of jewel it is. I am doing the camino and this was by far the best meal of the trip (through the exhausting walk your taste buds are anyway sharpened:-) - I took the foi as a starter and it was amazing!! Out...

We stayed here one night during our Camino, and it was one of our favourite places. It is a small place, but adequate and the food and service more than made up for anything else that might be lacking. Erminio, the owner-chef, was an amazing cook and served us one of our most memorable meals (and we had dined at... More

I arrived in Villafranca del Bierzo yesterday on my own, a day before the rest of my friends would be here. I will keep this short. If the rest of the places we stay on our way to Santiago de Compestela are half as nice, i will be doing very well. From the moment i arrived, the staff have been... More

We went for a dinner and were charmingly hosted by the owner. Our expectation was high because of all great references we read before. It was a very good meal and everything was well prepared and presented. The red wine, from the region and from old vineyards, was great and what impressed me most. Room wasn't crowded, rustic decor, comfortable... More

La Puerta del Perdon An outstanding home away from home. Plan to make La Puerta del Perdon your home-base, and take a few days to explore the beautiful, and little known, El Bierzo region. Your host, Herminio, will make you feel at home and his valued guest. We left feeling we had made a new friend, and look forward to... More

Great service - getting sweaty clothes washed was a treat. Awesome oxtail stew. Wonderful friendly service. Great rooms. Even some tuition to improve my espanol. If I ever go back to VF I will stay at La Puerta del Perdon.
