A rural hotel with maritime and oenological touches

The Hotel Quinta de San Amaro was founded eight years ago by Julio Ouviña, born in O Grove, and Nacho Crespo, from Madrid. They are two entrepreneurs who decided to launch their own charming hotel, having been users of this type of tourist accommodations for years. Both had been planning to launch a rural hotel away from the bustle of big cities, but well communicated and they found eventually the village of Meaño, in Pontevedra, a place located a few minutes from the spectacular beaches of the Rías Baixas and surrounded by the vineyards of the Salnés Valley. With these features, it’s not surprising that this rustic accommodation with Provencal touches has become a reference for all those tourists who decide to make wine routes or look for a quiet spot with access to cultural and leisure offers of the surrounding towns.

Distribution of the building

The hotel is located in an estate of 5000 meters and composed of 8 distinct and independent spaces. Among these spaces we can emphasize its 14 rooms classified into four groups according to their characteristics —the normal room, the superior room, the superior room with terrace and the colonial room—. Moreover, the Quinta de San Amaro has a cozy lounge where people can enjoy a pleasant reading accompanied by a coffee and a library specially designed for private meetings. The restaurant has a menu composed by recipes taken from the traditional Galician cuisine and it is located overlooking a natural setting full of great beauty.This restaurant, along with the attractive terraces and the large garden, completes the great offer one of the best hotels in the Rías Baixas.
