Overview

With its ample privacy, gated pool, summer house, oceans of gardens and views of the estuary where it meets the sea, family holidays are a big success at this smart, well-maintained coastal villa.

Once a 16th century friar’s residence, the villa is completely renovated. Constructed of attractive local granite, it enjoys a privileged hillside location above the harbour town of Combarro. It takes about 20 minutes walk to get to this pretty fishing village.

Surrounded by lush vegetation, you survey the wooded Pontevedra estuary, one of the major rias baixas (southern estuaries) of Galicia.

We liked it for its smart upkeep, gardens, very good pool, views and location by the sea estuary. As we found the living room a touch on the small side, and the kitchen is accessed from the outside only, we categorize the villa as a homely summer residence, where the accent is on outdoor living.

It has many qualities to recommend it, beginning with the location.

It’s very quiet here, in a rural neighbourhood of independent villas, and significantly warmer than the north of the region.

The local village of Combarro has small restaurants and beaches are close, too.

Children will love the pool and masses of lawned, sloping gardens, while parents will like being easily able to keep an eye on proceedings from the raised villa or the nearby summer garden house: a large barbecue and drinks room. The pool is fenced all-round for safety.

Of definite interest for convenience and fresh victuals are local vans delivering bread, fresh fish and fruit, which all call by in the neighbourhood, a toot on the horn announcing their arrival.

An automatic security gate opens to a gravel drive with private parking. Two entrances to the house then take us into a separate well-equipped kitchen, or the living-dining room, which is comfortable if somewhat limited in capacity for six people.

The kitchen is adjacent but independent from the rest of the house. The living room has wooden stairs up to the bedrooms, which are also accessed from an outdoor stone staircase: generally speaking, an easier and nicer way of getting to and fro.

The bedrooms are good size, rustic and inviting, while their en suite bathrooms are smallish. Each has TV (Spanish channels only), central heating and heated towel rails, and two of them have balconies.

The outside areas with the views and semi-tropical trees, date palm, orange and fig, make this into a very complete villa.

The rolling garden lawn is an open invitation to children to run and play, with the mosaic-tiled swimming pool below being the biggest draw. It’s fenced and gated for safety and has a splash pool for little ones. The salt-filter system makes it especially child-friendly: no need for sore eyes from chlorine.

Close by is an excellent, independent summer house with windows out to the pool and garden: the ideal place for getting together for meals and snacks. It has its own kitchenette with barbecue, fridge and sink and a covered porch with garden furniture.

The seaside town of Combarro lies just below, it is very short driving distance or just a stroll. Here you will find shops, restaurants and the harbour where yachts and pleasure boats are moored. A free added extra at this villa is the private use of a mooring here: so if you hire a motor boat (you don't need a licence or experience) for a day or two, you can tie the boat up here. Otherwise, it's nice to just stroll along the quayside and enjoy drinks at a café terrace on the waterside.

There’s a first-rate beach 15 minutes from the villa and exploring by car will bring you to many more sandy strands. Excursions are first rate from here: Santiago de Compostela, Portugal, the coast road, and Vigo for the boat over to the Cies Islands.

The villa owner runs a small, nearby hotel which offers bicycle hire and also has computers if you want to use internet at any time.

Claire | August | 2018

What a marvellous house! We absolutely loved our stay here. The house is beautiful, very comfortable with wonderful views. The garden is gorgeous and the swimming pool is a real luxury. The owner extremely kindly left some food and drink to welcome us. Combarro is a lovely village. We would really recommend a visit to this house."

Catharina | July | 2018

Excellent service from Rustica Travel prior to our holiday, Any questions we had were always answered very quickly. Very clear instructions which made our arrival to the property very smooth. Fran, the owner, showed us the property and explained how everything worked. Fran is running a hotel nearby in case of any questions/issues. The property is a little haven. Beautiful stone house with an amazing garden and pool. In the kitchen a generous welcome "basket" awaited us with wine, beer, water, fruit, bread, eggs, butter, coffee etc. The house is immaculate, very clear - with three separate bedrooms each with their en-suite bathroom. With 2 teenage kids the layout of the house was perfect for us. It's a beautiful region with access to many sights both cultural or beach. We will definitely come back as there is so much to explore.

What a wonderful place. It looked good in the pictures but it was even better in real life. We had a fantastic week at this villa. Prior to getting to the villa we had already spent a few days touring across Northern Spain and the plan was to use the villa as a base and tour out from there. That all went out of the window as the villa, the gardens and the pool were fantastic and we just didn’t want to move. Fran and his team were also brilliant and we had a really good laugh with them despite our limited Spanish and their limited English. All of the instructions for the villa had been translated in to English. The villa had been stocked with some provisions for us which we thought was a really nice touch. During the week there was a problem with the dishwashers (yes there are two) and both were replaced on the same day. You couldn’t fault the service provided. I was also highly impressed with the team at Rustical Travel. The communication with them was excellent and they were extremely helpful. They even got in touch with me just before the holiday to let me know that Wi-Fi had been installed at the villa."

Kathryn | September | 2017

We had a fabulous holiday in this lovely quirky villa in a nice rural setting. Comfortable bed (we slept in the room with 2 balconies) and nice to have an en-suite bathroom. Fran, the owner, was very helpful and showed us around despite his very limited English. Combarro is a lovely little town with bars and restaurants although quite a walk back up the hill to the villa. Rustical travel made booking etc very easy. There were only the 2 of us so plenty of room in the lounge etc. which probably would be a bit of a squeeze for 6 if the weather was not good enough to be outside or in the summer house. Other people have mentioned the dogs barking - everyone seems to own a dog or two - as well as the kennels nearby, so there were periods during the day when at least a couple of dogs were barking away, though mostly morning and evening at feeding times. Initially it was a little annoying but it soon became part of the background rural noise and we didn't notice it. Kathy"

Nick | August | 2017

The villa had an unusual room layout but this added to its charm It was clean and tidy and well equipped with a useful separate bbque / dining room The owner was very pleasant and quick to rectify any minor problems ie missing equipment We all enjoyed the garden which was beautiful and the location amongst local housing rather than being next to other holiday villas. The ladies spent alot of time around the pool There were very few restaurants you could easily walk to so we tended to go into Combarro (over a mile) where we were spoilt for choice The walk back up hill would not suit everyone but we enjoyed seeing the local area. The nearest beach was a car drive away and was really an estuary so not the best for swimming. The welcome pack was comprehensive but it is worth noting that local shops close many times for saint's days during August which can be very frustrating We really enjoyed the area and only heard English spoken a handful of times during our 2 week stay which was great Ou biggest complaint was the noise of barking dogs during the night which was a pity as the villa is located on a very quiet lane with no road noise except the locals with their tractors which was not a problem If you enjoy history culture and architecture together with good food (especially fish) and wine you will enjoy this villa."

Philip | July | 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here. The garden is beautiful and remarkably well maintained. The bedrooms, though not huge, are characterful and immaculately clean. The property is well provided in terms of facilities and cooking utensils, towels etc. The summer room with built in asado makes the place and we spent must time hanging out there. The pool is lovely too. It's a twenty minute walk in Cambarro (and a thirty minute walk back!). People have mentioned barking dogs, sometime reaching an hilarious crescendo, but get the feeling that comes with the territory, and has to be taken in the context of the positives of a relatively rural community so near a tourist area. The local agent speaks no english as such, but was very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property as a summer destination, maybe a little small for six if the weather was poor."

Teresa | May | 2017

This property is unique and has lovely views down the valley to the estuary. The gardens and pool are beautifully kept. Fran was very helpful, bearing in mind he speaks no English! We found several short cuts to walk down to the village which has an amazing array of bars and restaurants for a small historic village. Only drawbacks were the lack of internet (you can use Fran's hotel, but that was closed during our visit), Fran organised a special "router" which gave us limited access. Mostly we used a local bar! One other is the lack of indoor seating space other than the very small, dark and cold "lounge". When weather is hot that is no problem at all. The local dog kennels were noisy at feeding time, but then they usually settled down. We had a great relaxing holiday here, local farmer, bars and villagers were very friendly."

Rustical Update

The property manager informed us that, from June 2018, the property now has WiFi Internet.

We had a wonderful time at the property. The owner was relaxed and helpful and everything was in such great condition. The location is wonderful and very removed from bustle. A truly excellent find!"

Juliet | August | 2016

This property was stunning, with fabulous views over the estuary, pretty gardens and another fabulous pool, and the view from our balcony was just so, so beautiful. Whilst the lounge was quite small and the kitchen accessed only from the outside, this slightly unusual arrangement really wasn't a problem - the house was fantastic and we treasured our stay!

Geffrey | October | 2015

We thought we should write to let you know that we had a very enjoyable time in Cambarro. Fran met us as agreed and spent some time talking us through the use of the villa which we found useful. The weather was as you suggested it would be - changeable if not wet - but that didn't stop us going out to explore and finding some good food. Once again, our thanks for your help in re-arranging the booking."

Absolutely fabulous. Two super kitchens, one in the house and one by the pool. The pool was kept beautifully clean and the location was superb with fantastic views and a 20 minute walk to the village and the sea. Lovely hostess and would definitely recommend this property."

We had one of our best holidays at this house. it has lovely views and is not overlooked. it is close to the beach and with your own pool too it makes the perfect family holiday. the bonus was the outside barbecue room where we ate most of our meals except breakfast. Although the owner can't speak english he was very accommodating. I would go back to this house very happily."

Susan | August | 2014

We really enjoyed our stay in Galicia, the property was charming and the bedroom with two balconies light and airy. We didn't use the sitting room at all as it was very small and dark but the pool room was light and we used that a lot. Fran was very friendly and his wealth of notes in English made up for our poor Spanish. Rustical Travel notes and directions were excellent, thank you for making our vacation so special and we hope to holiday with you again in the future. Kind regards."

J. Mackenbach | July | 2014

Beautiful house with a lot of character. Large rustic bed-rooms. Very large garden, well-kept, with good swimming-pool. Lot of privacy. Quiet surroundings. Nice view over the Ria de Pontevedra. Combarro, nearest village, is very typical and offers nice small restaurants. Owner does not speak English but is very friendly. This is, normally, a bed and breakfast renting separate rooms, so if you rent it whole will not always feel like one house."

Angela | July | 2014

Villa was lovely we had a nice relaxing holiday the only comment would be that the showers in all the rooms were not very good in our bedroom the shower head would not stay in holder I think this something that needs attention cause for the price you would a least expect a decent shower !"

Rustical Update

As soon as we passed on this message, the owner went to fix the shower attachment and ensure that the others were satisfactory.
