The establishment

Welcome to El Descanso de Gaia! We are a charming accommodation, located in a wooden and stone village house in Rabanal del Camino, a few meters from the Camino de Santiago as it passes through the town and about 23 km from Astorga and 35 km from Ponferrada.

We offer quality accommodation at affordable prices, with a close and familiar treatment, especially focused on the pilgrims who make the Camino de Santiago.

Affordable rooms, and everything you need

Our rooms have shared bathrooms (two large fully equipped, very clean, located on the same floor of the rooms), plus a small toilet on the first floor, and several have direct access to our own balcony.

We also have a common room equipped as well as a kitchen with kitchen utensils, fridge, microwave and hob, a garage for storing bicycles, area for washing clothes and clotheslines or free WiFi in all rooms.


We are in Rabanal del Camino, a beautiful town of León, a must stop on the Camino de Santiago, very quiet but with bars, restaurants and shops, and located just between Astorga and Ponferrada. It is the perfect location whether you are looking for total disconnection such as visiting heritage or enjoying the excellent cuisine of the area.

COVID19 protocol

Cleaning has always been one of our obsessions, now more. Given the exceptional situation caused by the COVID 19 pandemic, we have implemented a special cleaning and disinfection protocol that we apply to the establishment, based on the guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ministry of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare of the Government of Spain.

There are several guidelines adopted, but they can all be summarized in that the rooms and all its elements are thoroughly disinfected and the bathrooms and other frequent contact surfaces are constantly cleaned throughout the day.

On the other hand, a small protocol of precautions has been developed for customers, which will be delivered to them at the entrance.

All rooms include:

✓ Towels ✓ Bedding ✓ Free toiletries ✓ Heating ✓ Thorough daily cleaning ✓ Reception ✓ Free WiFi ✓ Portable clothesline
