Spain Charming Small Hotel Guide

Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our selection of places to stay in North-West Spain are spread across the provinces of La Coruna, Lugo, Asturias, Pontevedra, Orese and Palencia. The region includes the area known as Galicia, the old administrative region centred on Santiago, with its Cathedral of St James, the age-old goal of walkers and pilgrims along the St James’s Way.

The coastline is often wild, battered by Atlantic storm waves, and rainfall is higher than any other part of Spain. Some terrific places to see await the visitor prepared to delve into this out-of-the way corner of Spain, along with memorable places to stay including old favourites Casa Grande a Fervenza Casa Grande de Trives and the Tahona de Besnes.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in North-West Spain offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (hostals), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.

We have recently taken Casona de la Paca off the site as we can no longer recomend them. If you would like to know why, please email our web editor on charmingsmall.hotels@zen.co.uk
