Castroverde is located in the centre of the province of Lugo, a few kilometres from the capital. Castroverde is on the Terras do Miño Biosphere Reserve. Nature is generous and always green there: trees, water and fertile land, this is the area. And also, the Camino de Santiago Primitivo runs through Castroverde.
A typical Galician country house. Stone, in need of restoration, especially in the interior. It has electricity. And water from a source located inside the property, therefore, free. The municipal water network comes very close to the house, you just have to prepare the connection.
On the ground floor, we have the kitchen. It has a modern kitchen and also an old-fashioned firewood. It has a nice marble sink right under the window. A long white marble table, surrounded by a wooden bench, completes the furniture of this kitchen. Right in front of the door of this room, we have access to the spacious stables. There is also on this floor an old kitchen where the food for the animals was prepared. And also an old lareira (the wood stove of the Galician country houses). In the back, there is an exit to the garden.
On the top floor, when climbing the stairs, we find a distributor that takes us to a bedroom on one side. And in the other, two other bedrooms plus a small dark room that could be transformed. There is another bedroom that would have to be completely renovated. In total, the house has an area of 290 m2.
The property also has a building to the left of the house, with a semicircular shape. There we see an old and beautiful stone oven for bread. It can be restored and needs roof and floor, a total restoration. In the back of the garden there is another building that is the old barn, 90 m2, which can be transformed into anything you want. The surface area of this property’s land is 3,500 m2.
With regard to the garden, this one has a centenary yew and a lot of boxwood (buxus sempervirens) the ideal woods to make bagpipes. In fact, Castroverde is the land of pipers. It shows that on one of the tower gates of the castle that remains, the image of one of these musicians is engraved, which gives it its name: the Gaitero (piper) Gate.
