The building of holiday cottages Casal de Armán today is an old house, the eighteenth century.
In a lintel of a doorway appears the exact date when construction was finished off, according to thecustom of the ancient stonemasons: AD 1727
In 1996 the present owners, the family González Vázquez, rushed hard work of restoration has taken to date of its opening in May 2004.
Next to the Ribeiro D.O. cellar, Casal de Armán’s hotel has six rooms and a traditional cooking restaurant with a pinch of modernity. It is an ideal setting for the visitor to rest, but also to enjoy anything related to the world of wine: cellar guided tours, videos about the whole winemaking process, commented tastings, visits to the vineyards, and even the chance to participate in the real life processes of cultivation and grape picking, etc.
Honouring the Ribeiro D. O., one of the oldest in Spain, the six hotel rooms were named after autochthonous grape varieties : Treixadura, Godello, Torrontés, Caíño, Brencellao and Sousón.
Visitors will find themselves in a well-refurbished 18th century court, as you can read in one of its lintels: AD 1727. Next to this inscription there is a mason sign, which makes us think of the efforts needed to erect this building. The hotel occupies the top floor and the attached body of the building with the six rooms and a common living room of more that 100 square metres.
Any of the family sons, either Javier, Juan or Jorge could be the one opening the house’s door for you. This is the way the visitor will feel in this countryside hotel.
