Thanks Amancio. I will be really grateful for accomodation. Can you send me places were you stayed. Also look that web side rayyrosa.com. Were any pilgrims on the way, did you walk alone?Hi, Tatjana!
I just came back from that wild camino, and there is indeed just about enough accommodation options and services along the way, but first of all, please notice you will need a GPS, maps and tracks if you want to follow this camino, the signposting is not the best.
Here you can find some practical information
and here too
Toda la información sobre el Camino Geira y los Arrieiros. Descripción completa de la ruta, las etapas, albergues, servicios, mapas, tracks, perfiles etc.www.rayyrosa.com
if you need any help or more details, please let me know! I did it in 8 stages, and found all accommodation options good value and excellent quality, except for Casa Lucita in Berán, a place to be avoided at all costs!
OTher than that, it is indeed a beautiful camino!
Hi!Thanks Amancio. I will be really grateful for accomodation. Can you send me places were you stayed. Also look that web side rayyrosa.com. Were any pilgrims on the way, did you walk alone?
I only found 1 Lithuanian and 1 Portuguese pilgrim in 8 days. I stayed in pensions, did not even bring a towel or a sleeping bag!

Hotel Castrum Villae, very central, 23 euro per person, booked through Internet, opposite the hotel, A Tasquinha Castreja is a great place for dinner, and the bakery A Castrejinha has some stunning bread and sweets (and a small shop)
Casa Conde, talk to Quique 988 48 30 / 44 686 70 63 49 / 687 298 890
beautiful old house in the town center, the kitchen is extremely well equipped
Casa Lucita, old, dirty, very expensive, the lady refused to tell me her rates and charged us 10 euro for an awful frozen food dinner. Worst of all is the fact that she refused time and time again to tell me how much it would cost to have dinner or breakfast. TO BE AVOIDED, she charged us 40 euro per person. The rooms are tiny, windows do not close properly, it is like a horror movie of a place, only one toilette and shower for all the rooms. NEVER AGAIN.
PAZOS DE ARENTEIRO
Ramiro manages a beautiful rural house in a gorgeus, clean, old small town, a garden overlooking the river... charges 40 euro per fully lined bed, including dinner (but no drink), or else 20 euro just a bed with no dinner or bed linen. I should have stayed here instead of in Berán.
Bar centro, 988 28 40 10, Celia, has an appartment in good condition, a bit aged, but with good beds, the kitchen is splendidly equipped, wort every cent of the 15 euro per person! Central, and a nice bar too.

dvakrat dražja od katere koli druge pokojnine, je kulisa za grozljivko, lastnica ni poštena ali zanesljiva, hrana je grozna, prostor je umazan, star, okna so zarjavela in se slabo zapirajo. Nočna mora kraja, k
Probably there is other possibility to stay somewhere else than Casa Lucita? Or not?twice the price of any other pension, it is the setting for a horror movie, the landlady is not honest or reliable, food is awful, place is dirty, old, windows are rusty and do not close well. A nightmare of a place, she will rip you off.
you can taxi back to Ribadavia (12 euro), or stay in Pazos de Arenteiro instead. Ribadavia is worth a long stop, you could do Cortegada-Ribadavia, then Ribadavia-Pazos de Armenteiro the following day, for example.Probably there is other possibility to stay somewhere else than Casa Lucita? Or not?
