The apartment was the whole of the ground floor of a beautiful stone built house in a village of similar houses,some larger some smaller, built approx 200yrs ago. The owners, a young couple with two lovely children, had renovated the apartment to a high standard and with furniture suitable for such an old property, lovely antique drawers and display cabinets.The area was mostly vines and close to the footpath to Santiago de Compostela.
We wanted an attractive rural location within easy driving distance from supermarkets and interesting places to visit. The house in Archua was an excellent choice from that perspective. It is only 35 minutes from an excellent supermarket in Vitoria, 45 minutes from Laguardia in the heart of the Rioja wine region, 90 minutes from the beautiful seaside city of San Sebastian.. Thanks to our host, Andoni Pinedo, we also visited Santa Catalina Botanical Garden--only 30 minutes away by car and an attraction we would not have known about without his advice.
