THE MANOR HOUSE
Miranda Manor House (the name Miranda comes from the Latin and means admired) and Prelo Chapel (the earliest parts date back to the 16th century with many additions from the 18th century) were declared Protected Historical Monuments in 1982 and have undergone extensive and careful restoration and refurbishment over a five-year period. Today Miranda Manor House has been transformed into a charming and cosy country house hotel**** named PALACIO DE PRELO from the hamlet of Prelo where it is located. In its recently landscaped gardens, Prelo Manor House Hotel offers guests 3 sumptuous double bedrooms and a further 2 suites with their own exquisitely comfortable private sitting rooms. All the rooms have been decorated to the very highest standards and are exquisitely furnished with period antiques and a colourful collection of modern paintings.
Prelo Manor, standing at about 1200 feet, enjoys privileged and exceptional views and outlooks over the Navia Valley, with the imposing crags of the Sierra de Bobia and the Sierra de Carondio rising up on either side. This latter range of mountains has been declared a protected area of outstanding natural beauty. We will be happy to show you a number of trails which can be explored on foot or on horseback and which will allow you to see a number of very well preserved Iron Age settlements (Castros de Coaña and Pendia). An equally interesting alternative might be to take out a canoe along the quiet waters of the Arbón reservoir and discover spectacular waterfalls and half-hidden caverns barely visible from behind rich overhanging foliage. Being so near the coast means that visitors to this area may like to take a picnic lunch hamper provided by the hotel which will allow them to spend a lazy, peaceful day on one of the many, splendid white, sandy beaches. An à la carte breakfast menu , a lunch menu which consists of the regions' typical dishes, and a carefully selected table d'hôte menu for dinner are designed to amply satisfy our guests at Prelo.
