We invite you to come and stay in our unique guest apartment, located in the tower of our historic, protected home. You will find it a relaxing escape, perfect for exploring the beauties of the Ribeira Sacra region, or simply for snuggling up with loved ones to drink tea, watch birds, and scamper around the fields and woodlands of the farm.
The tower was built onto the existing house in the year 1777, as engraved into one of the outside walls. Towers, balcony and entrance is a typical example of the Galician “Lareira,” a place traditionally used to smoke meats and dry chestnuts. The tower is 15 meters high and has its own independent external entrance with a balcony, from which you have a beautiful view of the valley.
The 36 m2 apartment is divided into two levels. The first floor comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, full bathroom, small living room with a convertible sofa bed, and TV.
On the second floor is the sleeping room with a large double bed (140 x 197cm).
Central heating, fired with wood, and under-floor heating of the clay tiles in the entrance area will keep you warm in the Galician winters.
The space is ideal for 2-3 people, though not ideal for toddlers because of the stairs.
We’re sorry that we’re not currently able to accept pets.

Interazione con gli ospiti
We maintain daily contact with our guests, if they so desire. We are usually hard at work on the farm, but always available to answer questions or give suggestions about excursions in the area.
Greetings! My name is Emmely and I've been developing the farm here at Tanquian with the goal of self sufficiency for the last 20 years. I raised my three kids on the land and now run a jam/juice business from my self-cultivated orchards and gardens. I'm also an artist (jewely/metal-worker). I have enjoyed hosting volunteers and apartment guests from all over the world, and look forward to meeting you!
