Fodor's Expert Review Casa do Louteiro

Calle Louteiro 6, Orellán, Castille and León, 24444, Spain Fodor's Choice

This charming, rustic inn, in a tiny village near the archaeological site of Las Médulas, was lovingly converted from a series of medieval ruins. It's an easy walk (down a narrow lane, and then hiking trails) from the hotel to the Roman gold mines. 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.

PROS

  • rustic details
  • friendly staff
  • fire pit on winter evenings

CONS
