This house is the East wing of a large and very nice “casona” that was built during the XIX and XVIII centuries. The property is one of the most pretty places of El Bierzo, the county whereof is located, a region full of art, culture, gastronomy and nature, where you will enjoy a fantastic trip. Five kilometers far from the house you will find Ponferrada, with its marvelous castle from the XIII century that you will have to visit. The millenary St James Way passes by the zone.

The village where the house is located is Villar de los Barrios, that together with the near Salas and Lombilllo form a neighborhood that will transport you two centuries back in time.

Part of the house was the headquarters of the police from the end of the Spanish Civil War till 1960, being the cellar the jail (it still has the bars)

The property is about 400 sq meters, comprising a large backyard and porch, where you can enjoy barbecues and quite evenings; five double bedrooms (one with bathroom); entry hall; cellar; complete kitchen; two more complete bathrooms and a toilet; a large living room, a large and very valuable gallery, and other accessory rooms.

Decorated with classical style furniture and ornaments, you will find it a charming place, at the same time confortable and antique. As there are no shops in the town, we provide you with basic products to make your staying more pleasant (fruit, wine, milk, eggs, bread, pasta, legumes, oil, etc)

The surroundings are impressive in all aspects, from nature to art, history or gastronomy; there are many routes to make your time here unforgettable: from the roman gold mines of Las Medulas, to Celtic "castros" in Los Ancares, mozarab churches, gothic, baroque and renaissance art, etc. The nature in the area is gorgeous, with so many opportunities to travel around and enjoy an astounding environment.
