Welcome to Casa da Cabaza, a rural haven in a Galician farmhouse
Located on the shores of a tranquil lake in the green countryside of northwestern Spain,
we offer stylish country rooms with a traditional farmhouse feel and delicious home-made breakfasts.
Our home is a creative space with positive energy. There are artistic touches everywhere you go.
This is a place to disconnect from your busy life, enjoy the peace and quiet, read a good book, relax in the hammock
or go for a stroll. Here, we breathe fresh air and connect with life around us.
Casa da Cabaza offers comfortable rooms, each unique with original art works.
Gardens and outdoor space
Relax and unwind in the garden with a refreshing drink and a good book. Soak up some sun, day-dream in a hammock under the cherry tree or go for a swim in the lake. Everyone is sure to find their own favourite spot. On clear nights you can watch the moon slowly rise and move across a starry night. This place really is quite magical.
There is much to discover in this part of Spain and Casa da Cabaza is perfectly situated in the center of Galicia to explore the

Hello and a private message
In these strange times it is good to be upfront and honest. I am a free thinker and I trust my common sense, logical thinking and inquisitive mind, especially when it comes to health and wellbeing.
A life based on fear isn't worth living and so I choose to be inspired by positivity and light. Would the world not be a better place if we share a smile more often? Isn't life better shaking hands and hugging friends?
I eat healthily and enjoy a good glass of wine. I take care of my body, mind and spirit. I find relaxation in nature and our animal family keep me connected to life.
Galicia has many hidden gems and I am happy to share my discoveries with you. Those special places to eat and drink, a list of 'must-sees' and other off the beaten track treasures. I love walking and would be happy to show you a handful of great walking routes.
I speak English, Dutch, French and Spanish, and I look forward to welcoming you here soon!
