Casa Camiño a Casa de Aldea, is a beautiful complex of ancient stone buildings that date back it is thought eight hundred years, which has been lovingly restored to create a quiet, restful and very comfortable place to stay. We are ideally located in the heart of Galicia, with good connections to all major roads and airports. So you will be able to tour Galicia by car visiting the many varied attractions and stunning sites, but you can still be back at Casa Camino for dinner that evening. Alternatively you could use Casa Camino as a stepping-stone to travel around the region, as you will find there are plenty of beautiful places to stay in other parts of Galicia. We are also situated directly on the path of the Camino Primitivo (Stage 11), you step out of our door and you are on the Camino. Making us the perfect stopping point for Pilgrims on the Camino Primitivo or the Camino Frances who want to stay with us over night before setting off again in the morning on The Way. We are situated only 9.5 kilometres from Palas de Rei which is at the end of Stage 28 on the Camino Frances. You can continue your Camino from us the next morning on the Camino Primitivo to Melide which is only 12.5 kilometres away (15 kilometres on the Camino Frances, Palas de Rei to Melide) and rejoin the Camino Frances (French Route) there. If you take an inexpensive trip by Taxi (approximately 12€) from Palas de Rei to us, or to and from Melide (approximately 18€).

Once you arrive with us you can have a well earned rest in one of our luxurious bedrooms for one or maybe two nights or more, it is up to you.
Casa Camiño’s dining room is on two levels which follows closely the original building design, this is where our guests sit and have their breakfast and dinner.

All our meals are cooked fresh using local produce wherever possible and we offer a high quality wine menu that is almost entirely made up of local Galician wines, also a very extensive range of Spirits, Liqors and Vermouths. You could sit in the gardens at one of the garden tables under a shady umbrella sipping a Gin and Tonic and looking at the incredible views.

Casa Camiño’s grounds are extensive and very natural, so you could go and explore or take a seat at one of the various seating areas and admire the breath taking views across the valley. There are also plenty of quiet private places for you to sit and chat with other guests or just enjoy a quiet moment on your own, the choice is yours. You could also sit up on the hill on the ancient stone threshing area, while there just take a moment to wonder at how in the past men carried and laid these massive stone slabs in this out of the way spot. We find one of most beautiful spots to quietly sit at sunset is by the entrance drive, here you can sit and watch the sun disappear into the hills to the west over the river valley. But do not worry there is virtually no traffic to disturb you and there is plenty of wildlife to see.
