Enjoy a few days of relax and hydrotherapy in the heart of Galicia, in the Northwest of Spain, with our spa holidays package. Come and visit the region with the second highest amount of natural hotsprings in Europe, the province of Ourense. We offer you a package of several days in a spa hotel in the region of Ribeiro, where you will be able to find peace of mind, relax and enjoy several spa treatments that use medicinal water from natural hot springs.

Ourense is one of the provinces in Spain with more wine Appellations of Origin, so we will combine the spa treatments with wine tourism, visiting several wineries from the Appellation of Origin called Ribeiro. Also, we will visit some gorgeous villages like Ribadavia or Pazos de Arenteiro; where we will discover the local Galician gastronomy, one of the most reputed regions of Spain in regards to good quality goods and traditional cooking.


Caldaria Spa Hotels

The Caldaria Group has 3 different spa hotels in the province of Ourense, with 2 out of those 3 located in the Ribeiro region. These 2 are the Arnoia Caldaria spa hotel and Laias Caldaria spa hotel, and both are 4-star hotels. You will stay in Laias Caldaria spa hotel if you visit us before Spring, or from Spring on you can pick whether you want to stay in one or the other.

During your stay, you can enjoy the natural hot springs pools located in the premises, and also enjoy specific daily treatments that are included in our package.


Wine tourism in the Ribeiro

The Ribeiro Appellation of Origin has some of the best wines in Spain. This region has more than a hundred wineries, from small wine producers and makers to well established wine businesses. During your stay, depending on the length, we will visit from 1 to 3 different wineries as a part of our daily tours.
