Camino Finisterre (June 2018) (. Ingles (2019)
Hello. My brother and I ( both 60 plus) are planning our first Camino in June. We are walking from Santiago to Fisterra....being Irish and originally from the west coast we are drawn to the Atlantic! We have decided to split the journey between Negreira and Olveiroa as 33 kilometers on day 2 would prove extremely challenging. I am looking for suitable accommodation mid way between both towns. Cornado appears to be half way but there does not seem to be any accommodation in that village. I am an inexperienced walker and after the first day (21 kilometers with a 2 .6 kilometer 1 /10 climb) I feel I shall need a much shorter walk with a comfortable bed at the end of it for day 2. Can anyone help ? ?

Perhaps consider Restaurante Albergue O Rueiro in Vilaserio, a little before O Cornado:

Phone:+34 981 893 561
Email:contacto@restaurantealbergueorueiro.com
Website:www.restaurantealbergueorueiro.com/

Their coordinates if you want to see their relative position on a map are 42.943465, -8.850004 (here that is on Google Maps). It's approx 12.8 km / 8.0 mi from Negreira.

Alternatively, there is Albergue Casa Pepa in Santa Mariña:

Phone: +34 981 852 881
Mobile: +34 686 234 342
Email: alberguecasapepa@yahoo.es
Website: www.alberguecasapepa.es/

Coordinates: 42.956811, -8.918421 Google. That is another 7.9 km / 4.9 m of walking.

And nearby Casa Pepa is Albergue Santa Mariña:

Phone: +34 981 852 897
Mobile: +34 653 626 864
Email: casaantelo@gmail.com

Note, though, I'm not sure if they are still opened (they haven't responded to my inquiries). Their coordinates are 42.957341, -8.926247 Google. For whatever it is worth, I have never heard much good said about this place -- anytime pilgrims have written me about this place the feedback on it has been poor. Take that with a grain of salt, though, since everyone's experiences are different.

Hope that helps.

LOL. I saw Margaret's post immediately after I posted mine and she likes Casa Pepa -- I will definitely defer to her! :)
No need to defer! Perhaps the night I was there more seasoning had been used. Remember "chacun à son gout".

Casa Pepa was open in June 2017. It was a wonderful respite on a very rainy day. It was also full, so consider calling in advance.

Casa Pepa is definitely still open. The one I wasn't sure about is Albergue Santa Mariña, which is on the highway just after the village itself. Someone doing research for me walked by there a couple of weeks ago but forgot to check it.

In Vilaserio, in May 2017 there was also an albergue at a farm that served a wonderful pilgrim meal. Don't recall the name, but someone else might know.

Thankyou so much for this information. In fact today I made contact with this Albergue as another member had mentioned it but couldn't remember the name. I am happy to hear that it is a good place to stay. We were intending to eat there but you seem to be suggesting that the its better to eat elsewhere. I shall take your advise. Many thanks
