Casa Pacios is a romantic and isolated 15th century country house surrounded, as it is, by chestnut and oak woods at the foot of a valley. It is also close by to the “French Route” on the way to Santiago.
The layout of the house is interesting, with an inner courtyard surrounded by buildings that in a previous life were connected to agricultural activities, but which now have been rehabilitated as apartments or rooms. The hayloft, for example, is now a 90 square metre living room and the dining room was previously the kitchen, and which still conserves the oven that baked the bread.
Other rooms have a wooden corridor going out onto the principal front, which is characterised by an austerity and small windows typical of the mountain areas.
We broke up a longer journey with a wonderful night at Casa Pacios and wished we'd had the chance to stay longer. The setting is stunning and very tranquil. The accommodation was simple and attractive with all you need for a comfortable stay - and, thanks to the thick walls - was blisfully cool against the summer heat (far more effective in fact than our expensive and air-conditioned modern hotel room in Vigo the previous day!)
The team were fantastically friendly and helpful, even recommending and calling ahead to a mechanics in a nearby town to help us with a broken tyre!
We folllowed previous reviewers' advice and had a fantastic Menu Del Dia at the nearby Esther restaurant and were driven there and back, which was amazing.
Thank you Casa Pacios and we hope to visit again.

When I arrived at Casa Pacios on my bike, I was a bit taken aback as its location was out of the centre of Triacastela, and I was worried that my wife, who was walking the Camino, would be upset by the extra walk. I was shown our apartment with a dining room and two bedrooms, each with a double bed. Casa Pacios began to grow on me. I cycled back to Triacastela and found my wife, and took her to the Esther restaurant that advertised free lifts to Casa Pacios. We were made to feel very welcome, with my wife being transported to Casa Pacios as soon as she asked for a lift. In the evening we joined another couple and given free transport to and from the Esther restaurant - we had one of our best evenings in the restaurant. The following day my wife was transported back to Triacastella straight after breakfast. I would highly recommend this secret hotel.

This is a hidden gem just off of the Camino.
We booked in advance and were collected from the sister restaurant in Triacastella.
The rooms are lovely and full of character - just our kind of thing. WiFi is free and easy to access - indeed I am submitting this review using it right now!
The travel to and from Triacastella is free and on demand. After freshening up.this evening we were whisked back into town for a lovely meal at Restaurante Esther and ferried back afterwards.
This place is in a beautiful country setting so very quiet and peaceful - offering just the kind of quiet night you need after a long hard day of walking.
100% recommended and would happily stay here again.

Estuvimos alojadas una noche como
Peregrinas ya que parabamos en Triacastela. Y que decir... Increible. Después del largo camino nos recogieron y nos llevaron en coche al paraiso. No esta en el mismo pueblo si no un poquito más arriba lo que pierde la casa en el monte y te da esa paz y ese descanso que necesitas. Con piscina y salon. Todo limpito y la dueña super agradable. Nos subieron la cena ya que nos dolia tanto todo que no teniamos ni animo de bajar (nos bajaban ellos tb si queriamos y nos volvian a subir, un lujo!!) Y el desayuno en ese salon todo de madera como de la edad media increible. Zumo bizcocho casero cereales fruta... Volveremos sin duda pero a pasar mas de un solo día y disfrutar de la naturaleza que ofrece esta casa. Recomendable sin dudar!!!

Já conheciamos o local que é prazenteiro e sossegado. Muito agradável e a funcionária muito simpática e disponível. O único ponto contra é a necessidade de renovação das cadeiras e espreguiçadeiras da piscina
Excellent value for money

Great place, excellent value for money, very friendly. Lovely to have a swimming pool on site.
It is in the middle of the country, a 5 minute drive from the nearest town, Triacastela. Perfect for what we needed.
