Casa do Louteiro
Calle Louteiro 6, Orellán, Castille and León, 24444, Spain
This charming, rustic inn, in a tiny village near the archaeological site of Las Medulas, was lovingly converted by the owner from a series of medieval ruins. It's an easy walk (down a narrow lane, and then hiking trails) from the hotel to ancient Roman gold mines that have left striking orange mountains of clay. Rooms are all in tiny individual cottages of varying sizes, with unique details incorporating natural features like living trees and stone or slate floors. Extra beds for families are also available. The owners will prepare meals on request (the local wine is fabulous!), and can recommend hiking trails or other activities.
