It's an example of an upper-class country cottage from the 19th century, which has been rebuilt and decorated with very much care in an excellent fusion of modern and traditional styles.
The house is a well-appointed cottage consisting of 6 spacious ensuite double rooms, all of them with breathtaking views of the surrounding nature. Casa de Doña Blanca also offers 3 spacious and cozy lounges and a nice garden with an amazing pool.
All the rooms at Casa de Doña Blanca are suitable for disabled guests.
There are a lot of places to visit around.We strongly recommend the cloisters of the 17th century of monastery of San Clodio and the Ribadavia´s Jewish quarter with its interesting Ethnological Museum. Carballiño has also a rich natural heritage with remarkable sights, including the Parque Etnográfico del Arenteiro and the church of Vera Cruz to name but a couple; but walking through its lively streets and tasting the famous and recognized "pulpo a feira" --a popular dish made up small cuts of boiled octopus leg flavored with olive oil, salt and paprika-- is also highly recommended: delicious!
SPECIALLY RECOMMENDED FOR WINE LOVERS: Viña Mein, the flagship winery in the area, with what may be the most spectacular vineyard of Spain. It´s advisable to book the tour with some time in advance.
The rural cottage of Doña Blanca is located in the small village of San Clodio, near Leiro village, between Ribadavia town (10 kms away) and Carballiño town (11 kms away), in Ourense province (see map).
