Special efforts have been taken to supply the house with large, pleasant communal areas where guests can get together, talk and relax.
O Muíño de Pena has seven guestrooms, all equipped with bathroom, television and Internet connection. Four are double rooms while the other three have single beds. One bedroom is able to accommodate disabled people, for it is larger and the beds are ergonomic with an electric motor.
The rooms stand out for the conscientious way they have been decorated, respecting the traditional quirks of the house. The delicate sheets on the bed and the curtains have been hand-sewn and embroidered by the family themselves. The iron headboards and the wall lamp fastenings, as well as the majority of the ironwork on the doors and windows, have been forged by hand by the owner’s uncle, a blacksmith.
Each room and bathroom has its own personality, but the presence of fine woods, iron and stone is the common feature in all. At all times the aim was to create a harmonious, comfortable atmosphere which blends modern comforts with the desire to preserve the spirit of the traditional buildings.
