This is a place that is special in every sense lodging should. The owners, Susanne and Adolpho, are doing a thing they are just naturals at. They are true hosts, who provide a retreat like no other.
My visit to A Casa Da Eira, a "Casa Rural" was for both business and leisure as I was there working as a writing coach with one of my colleagues. We spent 4 nights and I am trying to see when I can go visit again.
I found this place on Trip Advisor while in Santiago, corresponded by email, I was replied to immediately by Susanne.
When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Susanne, shown around and given much information about the area along with walking GPS's for certain treks. Susanne's husband, Adolpho appeared serving great breakfasts at a rustic farm table, offering information about where to go and what to see as well as explanations of the culture. When my Spanish failed me and I know no Galician, Susanne explained everything, speaking Spanish, German and English. We enjoyed two of Adolpho's and Susanne's traditional Galician dinners and were well accommodated when we wanted to fix a small something of our own.
I was given a tour of the rooms and a new apartment they are doing now. They have a lovely sense of mixing the very old with new and it creates an atmosphere of calm, living culture, and history.
