Welcome to Casa da Cabaza, a rural B&B in a Galician farmhouse

Selected by The Guardian newspaper (UK) as one of the 20 best vegan and vegetarian hotels and Bed and Breakfasts in Europe

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. 

Staying at Casa da Cabaza means being close to nature and the outdoors in a tranquil and peaceful environment.

You will wake to a chorus of birdsong and perhaps the tinkling of cow bells in the distance


Our rooms

From €75 per night, Casa da Cabaza offers five comfortable rooms, each unique with original art works.

All rooms retain their 

traditional farmhouse features with thick stone walls, chestnut beam ceilings and wooden or stone floors. 

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

dramatic Atlantic Coast, the Ribeira Sacra wine region, the Courel mountains and some of Galicia's most beautiful cities.
