The El Castaño Dormilón building is a restored old village school, converted to a beautiful house reflecting the simplicity of the Rías Altas natural reserve. From the Horse Chestnuts in lamps to the ecological energy systems, owners Mónica and Alex provide a great base for those exploring this largely untouched region of Galicia, one hour and ten minutes away from A Coruña and one hour and 40 minutes from Santiago de Compostela!
Back to school to go back to nature.

Only 20 minutes from the property you can visit the magnificent scenery between the highest cliffs in continental Europe at Cape Ortegal, (mythical place where the Atlantic ocean meets the Cantabrian sea), and Estaca de Bares, the most northerly point of Spain -
Nearby, bird watchers will want to visit the Ladrido Ramsar reserve, protected because of its high ornithological value for migrating and coastal birds.
The owners, Mónica and Alex will suggest all the “unusual” places to visit!!
Located in the heart of Rías Altas in Galicia, an area that remains wild, untouched and away from human intervention. It is a fantastic place. Lush coastal vegetation. Stunning scenery. Fine sandy beaches. Check out the YouTube video of the area above.
El Castaño Dormilón invites you to enjoy different experiences; from smelling the ocean...to enjoying a delicious seafood with a good wine ...or swimming in not- crowed beaches ...or kayaking down the river.... taking a horseback ride... or hiking.
If you love surfing you must go to Pantin (35 minutes away) which hosts the world championships. It's up to you!
