Your must-visit destination(s) this summer?
Galicia and Cantabria. I’ve been going back to Galicia for many years as I have friends that live there. It’s a beautiful green area in the north of Spain with villages that remain entirely unspoiled. Summer is the perfect time to visit as it is cooler than the rest of Spain. The nights are beautifully fresh and cool and the ocean is colder which I adore. It’s a great destination for food lovers too, especially for vegetables and seafood. Cantabria is also one to visit if you are heading to northern Spain. The beaches are some of the most beautiful.
Where should we stay while there?
In Cantabria: Cabañas de Pax. It’s a wonderfully rustic converted farm with fabulous rooms and is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. Hidden in the middle of a valley, surrounded by grazing cows and sheep, each of the traditional cabins has been renovated with all the luxuries you need, and clean soft interiors. The owners are wonderful and cook the most incredible traditional dishes.
And where should we eat?
Bar do Porto in Corrubedo in Galicia. Owned by architect David Chipperfield, it’s a laid-back restaurant serving tapas and local wines. The design echoes the easygoing vibe of the village and the food is delicious and unfussy but you still feel they have taken care of every detail. Just the kind of restaurant I love.
What’s on your bucket list?
What can’t you travel without?
Muji bags to organise my clothes when packing. They make it so much easier to find everything and are useful for laundry too.
