Idyllic rural retreat

I stayed at O Casal de Cris in the week prior to racing in the Pontevedra ITU Duathlon world championships. I had a rental car, so it was easy to drive the 8k or so into Pontevedra each day if I needed to. It is situated at the top of a very small road, off the N541; so small that in fact at one point I thought I had come to the end of the road as it entered the small courtyard of an old monastery, but driving a few feet further I noticed an alley down the side of the building and continued on up the hill. There are signs to confirm that you are going in the right direction. I had good communication from Cris through the aviabook.com website prior to arrival; I wrote in English and Cris wrote in Spanish, which I can read and understand mostly. Her spoken English is reasonable too. I was shown around the large house, and garden (including bbq area, tennis court and swimming pool - not usable at this time of year) and I met the sweet puppy, Tor and her 12y old son Bruno. The room was exactly as shown on the internet - a lovely balcony with orange blossom scent wafting in the windows. The bed was comfortable and the ensuite bathroom clean and spacious. The house is filled with myriad books, old antiques and chinaware. Breakfasts were served in one of 2 places, depending on the number of guests that day - the dining room downstairs or a small bright sunroom on the second floor with a fabulous view of the valley. Breakfast was fresh orange juice, sliced fruit, toast with jams, sometimes ham or tomato/garlic cloves, small pieces of cake, coffee (my own flask, with heated milk available) or tea or hot chocolate. When served in the dining room, cereals were also available. As I was staying 6 nights, Cris allowed me access to her kitchen - to store food in her fridge and use the kitchen to prepare food which was really kind of her. This meant I spent some time getting to know both her, Bruno and Tor who are very friendly and kind. Bruno would come and talk with me, practising his English, prior to going to school. One morning they allowed me to take Tor for a walk in the forested area behind their small community. It poured for rain for 4 days while there and Cris leant me an umbrella. She also let me print off some important papers prior to my departure. I would highly recommend O Casal de Cris to anyone - you will probably need a vehicle to access it. It is especially suited to someone wanting a place to retreat to, or as a point to stay and explore the surrounding area of Galicia. Cris is doing a superb job with her B and B, and went out of her way to accommodate my needs!

Wifi access in the bedrooms. (It is available in other areas of the house).

Muy bien todo

Solo pudimos pernoctar una noche y nos hubiera gustado estar algún dia más, pero ya estaba lleno. Cris nos enseñó toda la casa, las instalaciones y fué muy amable en todo momento. Muy agradecidos por su simpatia y amabilidad. La habitación muy correcta, la casa preciosa y la zona exterior increiblemente bonita.
Las vistas, las instalaciones y la ubicación inmejorable.
