rural life


The animals

Domestic animals are obviously closely related with humans. Peasant life is utterly characterised by the harmonic coexistence between people and animals. For this reason, your pets are always welcome in the house.

When you visit our house, the animals you live with can also come along.

The memories

The smells, the wood, the stone, the earth... the objects which were looked after to survive until our days, the food, the magic of the community, the bond with nature... you can experience many of these feelings under the form of a memory when you visit Casa Lourán.


It reminds me of my grandma’s house”, “...this smell of smoke”, “the flavour of milk...”, these are usually spoken words which symbolise the melancholy and joy of going back to a slow paced lifestyle which connects us with the essence of life itself.



The games

If you are travelling with children, Casa Lourán is definitely a destination for them with plenty of wonders to discover, and a stimulating environment to experience the freedom of the aldea, the hamlet.


Visiting the farm, collecting eggs from our hens and feeding the horse can become the best theme park for your kids

The walks

The great joy of walking leisurely, following the paths to humble destinations that immerse you in the most simple of pleasures.


From our house you can walk down to the river of Canedo, visit the watermill of Lourán, which is a captivating place and cornerstone of the peasant economy from the old times, or reach the Capela da Ascensión, located in Serra da Loba, where you have a beautiful panoramic view over the Valley of Xestoso.

By the fireplace

The lareira, which is similar to a chimney, was the core of the Galician household. Life flew around its fire. It was a place for cooking and eating, for speaking and telling stories, either fun or scary, for singing, playing, and dreaming. The lareira warmed people’s existence.

In our house, the lareira keeps being a gathering place, and the fire presides over our living room in any season of the year when the weather is appropriate.


Breakfast in our house will not disappoint you. Unlike dinners, served in a more intimate atmosphere in the living room, days in our house start with a shared breakfast around the kitchen table.


Along with the morning conversation, you can enjoy flavours without additives during breakfast. Fresh orange juice, milk from our cows, homemade butter, cottage cheese -which is the key product of our farm-, and a great variety of jams that are made with local fruit: blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, figs or peaches...

The pleasures

The pleasure of talking, or the pleasure of silence; the pleasure of walking or the pleasure of resting; the pleasure of adventure or the pleasure of reading.



There are many and varied pleasures to discover in an environment where time scapes the rush and spaces are green and full of life.

Lying on the hammock, listening to the birds, talking under the arbour with a view over the garden or making fire in the lareira are some of the pleasures that come along with simple life.

Watching stars

You don’t need to be an expert in astronomy to enjoy the beauty of a starry sky.


The landscapes of the firmament provide loads of surprises in their immense vastness with just looking up. Far from the cities, shooting stars, the moon, some planets or constellations can be seen in the sky as a gift that brings peace and inspiration.

Light pollution is minimal in the sky over our house. Every night, every single meteorological phenomenon can become a wonderful spectacle.
