About this listing

We invite you to come and stay in our unique guest apartment, located in the tower of our historic, protected home on our organic farm. You will find it a relaxing escape, perfect for exploring the beauties of the Ribeira Sacra region.

The space

We invite you to come and stay in our unique guest apartment, located in the tower of our historic, protected home. You will find it a relaxing escape, perfect for exploring the beauties of the Ribeira Sacra region, or simply for snuggling up with loved ones to drink tea, watch birds, and scamper around the fields and woodlands of the farm.

The tower was built onto the existing house in the year 1777, as engraved into one of the outside walls. Towers, balcony and entrance is a typical example of the Galician “Lareira,” a place traditionally used to smoke meats and dry chestnuts. The tower is 15 meters high and has its own independent external entrance with a balcony, from which you have a beautiful view of the valley.

The 36 m2 apartment is divided into two levels. The first floor comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, full bathroom, small living room with a convertible sofa bed, and TV.

On the second floor is the sleeping room with a large double bed (140 x 197cm).

Central heating, fired with wood, and under-floor heating of the clay tiles in the entrance area will keep you warm in the Galician winters.

The space is ideal for 2-3 people, though not ideal for toddlers because of the stairs.

We’re sorry that we’re not currently able to accept pets.

Lovely place to be! One of our best stays with airbnb. You get the feeling that the farm is in the middle of nowhere, but it is easily reached by car. It is very quite and the apartment if just wonderful. Emmely if very friendly and takes care that you have a good time. You should try her very good homemade wine and garden products!

We had a wonderful stay at Emmely's farmhouse attic apartment. The apartment itself has been wonderfully renovated and has all the comforts of home. The farm itself was a joy for parents and children alike - we had so much fun spending the mornings walking around the pastures and through the woods. A quick 2.5km drive and you're in Ferreira de Panton and can get all the supplies you need, although I highly recommend trying the foodstuffs that Emmely produces on her farm. The jams, breads, pestos, syrups, farm-fresh eggs and more are a delight! Note to parents of young children: This house comfortably sleeps four people (either 4 adults or 2 adults with 2 older children). We came with 2 rather young children (2 and 3 years old) and to make sure they didn't climb the stairs up to the main bedroom at night, we ended up sleeping all four of us on the living room bed. Still comfortable, but I imagine it would be ideal having 2 people per bed without worrying about the stairs. In the end, we HIGHLY recommend staying here. You'll love it!

We had a very pleasant stay at the tower apartment. The place is done up with great care, making it look even nicer than in the pictures. Emmely was helpful with providing directions and homemade bread and veg when needed. We enjoyed the tasty jams and watching the farm life and animals. Very relaxing place.

The tower was a cute and relaxed place for us. We only stayed with Emmely for a night but she was a very good host. We loved the animals and the garden with fresh fruits and vegetables. Next time we might bring some more time :-)

Greetings! My name is Emmely and I've been developing the farm here at Tanquian with the goal of self sufficiency for the last 20 years. I raised my three kids on the land and now run a jam/juice business from my self-cultivated orchards and gardens. I'm also an artist (jewely/metal-worker). I have enjoyed hosting volunteers and apartment guests from all over the world, and look forward to meeting you!
