About the Ribeira Sacra area in Galicia, north Spain
Both rooms have this view over vineyards, ancient bodegas, mountains and woods
The holiday cottage is situated in an area of inland Galicia called “The Sacred Riverside” (Ribeira Sacra), a rural area of great natural beauty, about 2 hours drive from Santiago de Compostela. It is known for its wine, its scenery, its craft and its simple, traditional home cooking. The region has its own Denominación de Origen wines from mencia and godello grapes and the wonderful scenery is centred on the River Sil Canyon, overlooked by Cristosende, the hamlet where Casa dos Artesans is located.
