Our House, Casa Lixa is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Bierzo alto, surrounded by centuries-old chestnut trees and green pastures. The environment features rivers, tracks and trails, mountains, flora and fauna and a spectacular gastronomy that makes this place ideal for resting and finding the harmony between nature and active outdoor tourism.
Located on the French Way, part of the historic Camino de Santiago, and in the center of the medieval village of "Las Herrerías de Valcarce". Casa Lixa sits at a delightful 675 meters above sea level in the province of León.
An ideal place to rest and start the hardest stage of the road to Santiago, located 165 kms from the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. From Casa Lixa to Santiago is 6.2 miles during which the altitude rises from 2,215 feet to 4,265 feet.
We are amid several hiking trails - a strategic point from where you can make excursions on horseback, fish in our rivers, pay gastronomic-cultural visits or go to wine tastings at local wineries.
