Granero del Burro (the donkey barn!) is a self catering barn conversion that caters for up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms. The barn was restored over 4 years and finished in late 2012. Externally, it has been restored sympathetically to maintain its original features. Internally however, it has a modern contemporary finish making the most of the big open spaces.
The accommodation sleeps 4 and is on 2 floors. It has 2 ensuite bedrooms; a twin bedroom downstairs and a double bedroom upstairs with a king size bed. There is an open plan kitchen/dining area, a downstairs toilet, laundry area, an open plan lounge on the 1st floor, outdoor barbecue and terrace with sitting and dining area, and parking for 2 cars. There are 8000 square metres of grounds in which to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Galician countryside.
The barn is well equipped with a 42'' plasma screen HD television and sound bar as well as a Blu Ray disc player which also plays standard DVD's and CD's. There is an iPhone/iPod docking station that allows you to listen to all your own music. There is also a selection of DVD's for you to watch.
The barn has underfloor heating throughout so is an ideal place to stay during the Winter months. It also has a wood burning stove with wood provided. All bedding and towels are included in the price as is all electricity and heating.
Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. Downstairs has a drench shower, toilet, wash handbasin and heated towel rail. Upstairs has the same with the addition of a bidet. From the upstairs bedroom you can walk directly outside with access to the sun deck on top of the boiler house! Both bedrooms have shutters that lock - and that can only be opened from the outside. A fun daily chore!!
The open plan kitchen has an integral breakfast bar and separate preparation area. There are 2 sinks, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, a ceramic hob and separate grill area, a convection oven and grill, a worktop bin, a plug tower and lots and lots of storage space. It is a fantastic space to work and play in!!
There is also a small utility area with a washing machine and separate dryer.
The outdoor area is based around the original bread oven. It is separate from the barn but has a fantastic mixture of sunshine and shade. There is a table and benches for eating as well as a rustic barbecue for cooking. It is well lit so you can sit out in the evening as well.
In addition to the bread oven, there is a grain store that has been restored. This has great area underneath for drying clothes. There is also a parking area for 2 cars with a pavement up to the barn. There is an orchard which is full of apples in the Autumn!!
