We were late making reservations for the Easter break and our usual rural hotel was completely booked. Instead, we managed to get a room at another hotel, southwest of Melide on lake Porto de Mouros created back in the 1960s, Casa Farruco.
Turned out that the same owner started his little rural hospitality empire with Casa Farruco, and the last was our usual standby, Casa Teillor. While the age of the installations was noticeable, the place is in such a lovely situation that it hardly matters.
We took a stroll the evening of our arrival, down some logging trails along the shore, and got back to our room in time to enjoy snset over the water from our little porch.
After an unseasonably warm and bright Thursday and Friday, a cool drizzle greeted us Saturday morning and we got to enjoy the lovely mysterious quality of Galicia´s countryside in the mist.
