The house is located in the middle of the property, protected by a forest of eucalyptus in its upper side and by a lawn in the rest. The private paved road, which crosses the forest of eucalyptus, leads directly to the house, and it surrounds plum-trees, lemon-trees, orange-trees, chestnut-trees, and even walnut-trees, cherry-trees and an ancient olive-tree.

There are nearby sites with barbecues and picnic tables by the river, those arranged by the Town-hall of Campo Lameiro (10 minutes).

     

The House.The House.

Fachada Sur de la casa.It has cool cellars in its ground floor, luminous bedrooms in the first floor, a typical Galician kitchen with "Lareira" (‘fireplace’), and a stone furnace, and a wooden upper floor. It also has a large annexed shed of two floors, with parking for several cars in its ground floor. In front of it there is an ancient watering-trough, where the sound of the water falling from the stone pipe can be heard. The water comes from a tank, located in the upper part, which supplies the house with water. This water is completely channelled from the spring called "Fonte dos Corbos", which belongs to the state, and it is of a very highly praised quality. A family can consume its water without fear of shortage, and it can also be used for the complete watering of the state.
The thick stone walls of the house enable the very best arrangement of the housing both in summer and winter. The windows made of wood and glass, typical of Galicia, have window-shutters with traditional lockings.Lareira. Horno de pan.

Vista norte de la casa.A stone staircase, sheltered by a traditional iron gate, leads us to the house ending in a covered lobby, with two doors of solid wood to access independently to each part of the house. In this way the area of the bedrooms is separated from the kitchen and the living room. In the front part, the anagram of Christ and the Virgin can be seen in the North facade, fact that reminds us of the monastic origins of the house.
