Settled into the Oscos-Eo Nature Preserve just off of a small rural road, the house integrates the rustic features of the original structure with a crisp modern update that highlights the contrasts.
The living room draws your eyes to the magnificent timbered ceilings and shares the space with the dining area and a step-up modern kitchen with an original early 20th-century wood-burning stove.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms, a bunk bedroom that’s ideal for kids, with a separate one-bedroom apartment-style room.
The house has an interior patio and garden with a terrace for alfresco dining.
THE LUGO REGION OF GALICIA
Located in the heart of the Oscos-Eo Nature Preserve, halfway between the interior and the coast, this area of Galicia allows for fascinating exploration of the northern reaches of the country.
The closest town, A Pontenova is a five-minute walk (via a pathway) and has a nice selection of shops and cafes to taste a little of the local flavor and there are hiking trails within a few minutes.
Several of the best Atlantic beaches are within a thirty-minute drive including the famous Cathedrals Beach.
The bustling port town of Ribadeo is a thirty-minute drive and the nearby Roman fortress city of Lugo with its pedestrian-friendly squares and streets is one of the region’s most fascinating.
Surrounded by mountains and national parks just an hour from the sea, it’s a quiet and lush network of valleys and rich in natural beauty, culture, and gastronomy.
