Hi Richo - on my VDLP and Sanabres, starting 19 April this year, I stayed mainly in private rooms.
From Seville I stopped in Santiponce, Guillena, Castelblanco de los Arroyos, Almaden, El Real de la Jara, Monesterio, Fuente de Cantos, Zafra, Villafranca de los Barros, Almendralejo, Torremeija, Merida, Aljucén, Valdesalor (taxi from Aljucén) Caceres, Casar de Caceres, Santiago del Campo (off Camino), Grimaldo, Galisteo, Carcaboso, Aldeanueva (taxi from Carcaboso) Calzada de Bejar, Fuenterroble, San Pedro de Rozados, Salamanca, Calzada de Valdunciel, El Cubo de Tierra del Vino, Zamora, Montamarta, Granja de Morueula, Tabara, Camarzana de Tera, Rionegro del Puente, Asturianos, Puebla de Sanabria, Lubian, A Gudiña, Campobecerros, Laza, Vilar do Barrio, A Pousa, Ourense, Cea.
Disappointingly at A Pousa I tripped on a stone step and hurt my foot badly, so I taxied to Ourense the next day, stayed four days and then did a test walking day over to Cea where the pain stopped my Camino. I’m hoping so much to finish the Sanabrés next year. I mention this as I don’t have information for after Cea.
The towns I stayed in albergues were Castelblanco de los Arroyos, Torremejia, La Calzada de Bejar, Calzada de Valdunciel, Rionegro del Puente, Asturianos and Campobecerros. All the rest were in private rooms. I’m pretty sure that all the towns at which I stayed in albergues have hostals etc where you can get a private room. However, a few may have a shared bathroom but of course you’ll have your privacy with showering etc.
I did a lot of the bookings on Booking.com. Other accommodations I contacted by email and by phone. Apparently WhatsApp is great to use instead of emailing and phoning.
I hope that you love the VDLP and Sanabres - the quiet joy of being out on the mostly empty roads and paths, with few other pilgrims, is something that has stayed with me and fills me with happiness. It’s a very, very beautiful Camino.
Best wishes from Oz -
