Country hotel, golf & pool, Cantabria and AsturiasTol | Ref: HTOL1 | Bedrooms: 12
In the peaceful farming village of Tol on the Camino de Santiago in Western Asturias bordering with Galicia, just five minutes from the nearest beaches.
Once a working farm the main farmhouse and several outbuildings, nestled around a pretty courtyard, have now been carefully and lovingly restored and renovated to make a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. Along with a restaurant with a good local reputation and a bar/cafeteria, the true bonus here is that the farmland is now an immaculately kept 9 hole golf course and is right on your doorstep along with a very good sized indoor heated swimming pool with a jacuzzi and sauna and massage treatment available on request.
Belen and Pedro and their son and staff will make sure your stay is a homely and memorable one.
The surrounding area has much to offer with the dramatically situated town of Ribadeo on the Eo estuary a ten minute drive and the interesting little towns of Figueras, Castropol and Vegadeo a very short distance and Tapia de Casariego, well known internationally for its surfing competions even nearer. A great area for walking, mountain biking, sailing, surfing and fishing.
In the village of Tol itself there is a wonderful old shop/bar selling everything from beans to boots - well worth a visit!
