Overview

This large Galicia property has it just right: thoroughly traditional architecture and accommodation which is not only comfortable,  but warm and inviting.

Forming an L-shape around a walled patio the property gives you two-cottages-in-one, which allows two families holidaying together to have some independence when required.

You can all join together to share meals in the main house, which has a dining table and chairs to seat 10 people. We'd have liked a dishwasher, but we couldn't fault it otherwise.

It’s a holiday home with many qualities and a lot of heart. Stone walls and a rustic feel,  wood floors and furnishings, all contrasted with some colourful painting, good beds, smart fittings.

We like it when houses have a bit history, too. The caretaker explained that she knew the property very well because many years ago it was old village school and she used to climb the stairs to go to class... 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).

At Rustical Travel we also like it appealingly rural and this place is genuine Galicia. Quality, intimate gardens and a swimming pool go with the house and the location is delightful. You can have a wonderful holiday here in greenest Spain, less than half an hour from the coast.

The house enjoys good privacy, backing onto other houses a decent distance away. In the corner of a lovely old patioo is a sheltered recess akin to a wine cellar, set with barrels and stools.

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

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, in order to be kind on eyes, and the pool garden is gated.

The garden and pool are not overlooked and, in any case, in such a quiet rural location as this, the local people respect your privacy completely.

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 35 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, 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.

Highly recommended.

YOUR REVIEWS

Vicky | August | 2016

Great house for a large group. Very well equipped, lovely pool and well maintained house and gardens. Good wifi. Owners very helpful about places to visit and things to do. It's a bit rural so we struggled to find local places to eat that didn't involve a drive. Ponte Candelas is a good size and about 15 mins drive away - has places to eat and a good supermarket. Lovely region of Spain to visit, would recommend."
