Many visitors to Galicia stay in hotels or pensions, and this is of course practical if you are visiting city centers and like the urban environment.
But Galicia has a lot more to offer, its nature and gastronomy can best be enjoyed in a rural environment. In Galicia there are close to 600 rural houses that are rented out to tourists that are looking to experience the rural Galicia.
But living in a rural setting does not mean that you can not travel into the city center and experience them as well. For example, “Casa Brandariz” just outside Arzúa (30km from Santiago de Compostela and about 20km from the Santiago de Compostela airport) offers 8 rooms at a reasonable price well within reach of Santiago de Compostela.
