Portada_Guia_Alastair.jpg (43200 bytes)ALASTAIR SAWDAY'S, SPECIAL PLACES TO STAY, SPAIN

Sometimes grand family homes converted to receive guests cease to be either "grand" or "family". Not so Trives; here the balance between caring for you and respecting your intimacy is just right. This noble old village house was one of the first in Galicia to open to guests. Like good claret it has improved with time. The rooms are in a separate wing of the main building, big and elegantly uncluttered with lovely wooden floors, the best of mattresses and wonderful cotton sheets. There is a sitting room where you can have a quiet dringk, and a truly enchanting garden beyond for the warmer months. Breakfast is taken in an unforgettable dining room; here the richness of the furnishings, the cuto flowers and the calssical music vie with the grand buffet breakfast. There are home-made cakes, fruit, big pots of coffeee, corissants, and it all makes its way up from the kitchen via the dumb waiter. Fine bone china adds to the elgance of the meal. A marvellous place and a mos gracious welcome by mother and son. Grand Cru Galicia!.

THE GOOD HOTEL GUIDE

A tipical Galician pazo, or manor house, one of the oldest in the area, this lovely old house has been carefully restored and traditionally fusnished by the Alvarez family. "This was the find of our journey", writes its nominator. "Our bedroom was large with beamed ceilings, lovely honey-coloured, polished wooden floors, stone walls, large wooden shutters and a balcony overlooking a restored patio". Bathrooms (described as parador standar) are modern and en suite. Breakfast (there is no restaurant) was "the highlight of the stay. We sat at big tables amidst the family antiques. The food was superb, including two types of quince jam, served by the Señora at 9.30 am when the morning's fresh bread was delivered". Coffee port anda cake is dispensed in the sitting rooms in the evening... Tariffs ("half that of a parador") are remarkable value... 

BED AND BREAKFAST ABROAD: "...A wonderfull 17 th century barque mansion run by the same family who have lived there for generations. The building dominates the rather ordinary willage and the severely handsome stone exterior contraste with the superbly renovated and welcoming interior. All the bedrooms are furnished with antiques and breakfast is presented in the most delicate manner in the main salon..... Beautiful surronding countryside..."
