Hi everyone,

I completed the Camino Frances from SJPDP to Santiago in 2017, and I'm meeting some friends shortly in Santiago to do a four day walk to Finisterre. Can someone let us know where the best places to stop are for a four-day leisurely trip, and potentially since nice albergues or hostels at those points? Given that our route/time is fixed, I may try to reserve a few spots to take some of the pressure off.

I enjoyed my stay at Albergue Horreo in Olveiroa. It also has rooms (Casa Loncho) and a restaurant. I liked wandering around the neighborhood too. Quite a few horreos there.

Again, soon as possible!
Hi Duane

My stops are usually Negreira, Olveiroa, Cee, then Finisterre.
In both Negreira and Olveiroa I usually stay in the Xunta albergues, but in Cee I really like A Casa de Fonte.
In Finisterre the only place for me is albergue Cabo de Vila.

The best place to stop is where you are tired. Have fun and Buen Camino!

Albergue Monte Aro in Lago is fantastic

Looks pretty spiffy and wish I could check it out on my upcoming camino. If I have time after I finish I am going to do the walk to Muxia. Never did that one. But there will be more caminos!

I also like the Casa Loncho in Olveiroa, although that is a long stage from Negreira. Maybe better to stay in the Monte Aro. In the restaurant by the Casa Loncho you can get meals at the restaurant anytime, something like 6 am to 10 pm. Lovely!
In Negreira I liked the Hostal Pensión La Mezquita. First time my husband and I actually had a KING-sized bed, with a huge buffet breakfast included for only 50 E! They also have a very nice albergue there if you prefer it.

We did Negreira, Santa Mariña, Cee, Finisterre - but that was 2016. I think some albergues have opened up in other villages that might allow you to avoid a 30+ km stretch.

Beware the Mercado in Negreira. Was closed on Sunday, and not open until 10am Monday. Come stocked if that’s your day there.
