Welcome to Casa Cabaza, a rural retreat in a Galician farmhouse

Are you looking at staying in nature in Galicia, the green north of Spain?
Located on the shores of a tranquil lake in the green countryside of northwestern Spain,

we rent out three stylish country apartments with a traditional farmhouse feel.  

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. 

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 Cabaza is perfectly situated in the centre of Galicia to explore the dramatic Atlantic Coast, the Ribeira Sacra wine region, the Courel mountains and some of Galicia's most beautiful cities.

welcome to my home! Casa Cabaza


Hello and a private message


I will share a bit about myself, so you understand the ethos of Casa Cabaza. 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!
