This property is a unique natural complex of great beauty located in the highlands of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia. In this marvelous corner of Lugo, a multitude of activities coexist in an organized manner. It is a fully operational tourist business with four apartments, as well as eco-friendly agricultural and livestock activities. The property consists of various buildings from different periods and uses, all of which are surrounded by preserved native flora and fauna, cared for and respected.
The estate covers approximately 55 hectares on paper (around 80 real hectares) and boasts meadows, numerous fruit trees, 2.8 hectares of certified organic chestnut groves, hundreds of centennial wild oaks and chestnuts, 11 hectares of certified 17-year-old pine forests, and other species of riparian forest with alders and birches. Thousands of shrubs related to the history of the place, such as heather, holly, and laurels, add to the natural beauty. The property is crossed by the Toldao River, which forms spectacular waterfalls along its course. The estate is fenced with a perimeter metal fence of over 2 meters high, built on an underground concrete base, with a total perimeter of over 4,500 meters.
Within the estate, there is a mine or spring with facilities for self-supply of drinking water, a dam, and canals for a mill and irrigation of meadows, as well as a connection to the public water network. The ancient Roman mining canals are also preserved, used for gold extraction in the northern part of the property. Several tracks, paths, and trails allow access to all parts of the estate, including an area used as a bird and animal observatory.
The central area of the estate, where the Casa Grande (Big House) is located, is exceptionally beautiful. Two interconnected interior courtyards, accessed from the outside through two large gateways, articulate the different areas. Around the spacious covered inner courtyard, arranged on two levels, there are four fully renovated apartments and a family area with a chapel and a large dining room. The outdoor landscaped courtyard allows visitors to appreciate the solid rock that underpins the house, and stone stairs and railings provide access to six spacious apartments: one fully renovated, three partially renovated, and two untouched. The outdoor courtyard also gives access to the large heating boiler and the areas for processing/honey, chestnuts, and mushrooms.
The property includes several annexed buildings, such as a mill with two grindstones and space for horses, a traditional oven, a forge, and an alquitar (a type of distillation device). In the surroundings of the main house, there is a granary (hórreo), threshing floor (era), barn, a set of wine cellars (bodega), anteroom, and attic. Additionally, there are a medieval bridge, a Roman fountain, and a dovecote. Other buildings or constructions include covered facilities for feeding and handling large livestock, a riding arena, covered facilities for breeding, feeding, and handling game species, a specific area for the hotel and canine training, a garage for machinery and forestry tools, and a water tank with a capacity of 250 m2. There is also a mini-hydroelectric power plant with a machine room. The total built area is 3,020 m2.
The Casa Grande has tourist apartments in operation. The property is involved in modern honey and chestnut production in a mushroom forest. It also exploits the commercial resources of the game animals on the estate. A mini-hydroelectric power plant provides self-sufficiency for the property. The estate includes a splendid heritage of buildings, such as the chapel, mills, oven, wine cellar, barn, and an ancient blacksmith's shop.
Currently, there are four operating houses with a capacity of 10/11 apartments, including the wine cellar. This fully functioning project is now offered to entrepreneurs and nature lovers due to the age of the current owners. Different forms of commercialization, total or partial, including or excluding all the exploitations of this marvelous natural complex in Ribeira Sacra, can be studied.
