Large spaces, well located. Everything can be done by bike. Small, dynamic and friendly team refreshment of housing needed and lack of barbecue area.

absolutely flee !!! Rental from another era without comfort. Attention the photos of the site are misleading !!! Very small accommodation only one room which is the kitchen, no sitting area. No hygiene !!!! Disgusting accommodation, dust everywhere even on the coffee maker, forced to clean everything on arrival !!!! Clogged sink, garden furniture more than dirty and very old. Weeds 1.5 m high as a bed in front of the terrace. It is our neighbor who has cleared the brush ... Where are the Covid 19 standards and process, it is unacceptable !!! It would take an ARS control !!! In addition the manager does not even apologize, it seems quite normal to rent dirty housing. The only answer is to say "yes but you benefit from 22 ha and we only had 2 days to prepare the gites". He should seriously question himself !!! This is not our problem. The customer pays for a service and expects at least a minimum of cleanliness and service. In addition, the 22 ha are not developed, it is a field of grasses without floral ornamentation and a whole bunch of abandoned housing estates. The only point of interest is the GR34 which passes at the foot of the park and which you can therefore take. So, you have been warned !!! Above all, do not book, FLY !!! Unless you want to get ripped off. I would also like to point out that we have met many other families who have made the same observation ... It is distressing to see that some people tarnish the image of tourism and hotel professionals.

The setting is really beautiful and the place is quiet. You can also think of organizing your events on the domain which allows it, there will be room to accommodate your guests!

The setting is superb. Really quiet. Very walks to do. A little surprised by the condition of some parts of the estate, but they are reviving the activity of an old holiday center that has been closed for years.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
