Galicia is always an interesting challenge when it comes to finding that winning balance of traditional with comfortable. We see traditional houses that turn out to be monastic in their furnishing, and plush properties that we find simply soulless.

This property has it just right. The architecture is thoroughly traditional and the accommodation is not just comfortable, it’s warm and inviting. You can have a wonderful family holiday here in greenest Spain.

Quality, intimate gardens (and a pool) go with the house and the location is delightful: this is genuine Galicia.
The holiday property consists of two stone cottages in one: a 3-bed and a 2-bed house forming an L-shape around a walled patio.

They are rented together as a single property, although for dates that avoid July and August, the larger house may be rented on its own (and then the smaller cottage remains closed).
Having two cottages means that two families can be together and independent at the same time. They adjoin each other with their own entrances from the patio.

It also means double facilities: two kitchens, living areas, TVs and DVD, and WiFi internet. And you can all join together to share meals in the main house, which has a dining table and chairs to seat 10 people.

Stone walls and rusticity in wooden floors and furnishings are contrasted with some colourful painting, good beds, smart fittings. It’s a holiday home with many qualities and a lot of heart.

Several original elements have been left in place when practical, appropriate and attractive, such as an old marble basin and a grand stone fireplace (firewood and central heating are included here).
Both cottages look onto the lovely old patio and enjoy all due privacy, backing onto other houses a decent distance away. In the corner of the patio (which is cobbled and uneven, but we found this was part of its genuine charm) is a sheltered recess resembling a wine cellar, set with barrels and stools.

The patio door opens to a parking area and entrance to the private garden entrance.

The garden is hedged round and landscaped on two levels. You have a beautiful, large swimming pool here, surrounded by a well-kept lawn.

There’s also a barbecue and, sheltered by trees, a children’s playhouse with a few toys, very neat and nicely kept. This is an idyllic place for a family holiday. The pool water is salt-filtered to be kind on eyes and the pool garden is gated.

Local Area

The centre of the village is just a few minutes’ walk. You can do your shopping here (there’s a particularly good butcher’s) and there are a couple of good places to eat out or have drinks, including a hotel and a rustic bar.

Just 6 km away, the small town of Pontecaldelas, prettily set by the River Verdugo, offers a number of restaurants. Galicia has a deserved reputation for food so expect to eat very well!

The area is beautifully unspoilt and within half an hour there’s so much to discover and enjoy: signposted walks along paths through lovely woods and to waterfalls, medieval architecture, petroglyphs, views of the ocean and estuaries from the Pontevedra mountains, including the legendary O Seixo, forested hills where wild horses and even an occasional protected wolf still roam.

The coast is a big attraction, of course! We place the nearest good, sandy beach at 40 minutes. Portocelo beach in Marin is not just the closest one, it has the accolade of a Blue Flag for its clean water and facilities. Nearby Poio offers other good beach options.

And by no means to be disregarded are some lovely river beaches for river swims and picnics. There’s one just 2 km from the villa.

In the same area, horse riding is possible for all the family, following routes through the countryside and over the river.

If you fancy a town visit, and you can drive or catch a bus from the village to Pontevedra, which has a historic centre.

And this being Celtic Galicia, there is always an interesting atmosphere, some food fair or other going on, especially seafood, and the welcome of what we think are the friendliest people in all of Spain.
