Overview

The stone-built house is excellently prepared for a holiday stay, the result of intensive and skilled labour to create a distinctly chic seaside villa.

It backs directly onto the legendary Mount Pindo on Galicia’s pretty Rias Baixas coast, an interesting destination for a holiday for enjoying beaches and exploring.

The nearest beach is less than 5 minutes’ walk and the coastline right here is both a pretty and an exciting prospect. The searoad links the spectacular Carnota beach 10 minutes north with Finisterre to the south, the impressive cliffs of the "Coast of Death", and more sandy beaches at Camariñas.

The property is set back from the coast road and reached up a short path. A rustic gate opens to the front patio with a wooden pergola. This terrace is quite broad and simply furnished with wooden recliners. This outdoor dining spot is nicely raised so that you can see across sea marshlands to the beach, whose sands are a short walk away.

A hallway lobby downstairs divides an attractive living room, finished with some artistic touches, from a spacious country kitchen.

The living room has comfortable seating for six people, and it is painted cherry-red, with sparkly mantelpiece decoration and shuttered, draped windows.

The kitchen is large, bright and well set-out with a wooden dining table for six. Granite walls and pillars around the modern cooking area are a reminder of the property’s hundred-year history, and touches such as antique ceramic light switches and Galician wine bowls and a beautiful cabinet contrast effectively to contribute to an overall impression of a colourfully fashionable villa based on a rustic original.

A wooden staircase rises to a landing and the choice of three double-bedded rooms.

These are individually decorated, with arched oak ceilings and oak flooring, and each has its own distinctive colour scheme.

• Bedroom 1, the River Room is decorated in shades of red, has a hydromassage shower and rocking chair. As the name suggests, its windows open to a clear stream that tumbles past the house from Mount Pindo. The bathroom has a view of the beach and sea.

• Bedroom 2, the Sea Room comes in gentle, light greens. It has an inviting antique armchair and a view of the ocean.

• Bedroom 3, the Mount Room, in mauve and purple, is the quietest, backing onto Mount Pindo to the rear.

A clean set of bedlinen and towels is left in the linen cupboard if you wish to make use of it during the week.

It is Pindo that makes the location a magnet for Spanish visitors for whom the name evokes its several legends. Sometimes called the “Celtic Olympus,” certain strange inscriptions or a cult of the sun and stars led to its being excommunicated by bishops and kings. Other stories speak of the fabulous treasure of Queen Lupa. There are rock formations of animals and monsters and a wealth of medicinal plants on its flanks.

Grass is said to grow prodigiously fast overnight on Mount Pindo.

For holidaymakers at the villa, Pindo with its colourful rockface is the hill onto which your house backs – and which you can climb up, if the fancy takes you. There’s a rear terrace, barbecue and two spaces carved out of the rock where you can sit out quietly at the back of the house. Do note that one old lady neighbour has traditional right of way past here to go and tend her market garden, but to all intents and purposes this bit of Mount Pindo is all yours.

If you take the path up to the top of Mount Pindo, it takes 2½ hours. The views are tremendous: the sea, of course, the superb Carnota beach nearby to the south, and the lighthouse at Finisterre to the north.

Carnota beach is simply magnificent. The longest and most impressive by far in Galicia, it has 6.5 km of white sand in a stunning natural enclave.

Finisterre and its lighthouse at the “end of the world” make for a different attraction just half an away, and further north up the coast is Cape Vilán lighthouse at pretty Camariñas, from where a good 19 km dirt track follows the coastline round to Arou and Camelle. There are some spectacular views and gorgeously unspoilt beaches, such as Playa del Trece. Kite-surfing is popular along this stretch of coast.

Fancy learning to sail? Rustical Travel clients can also take advantage of a special deal with the local sailing club. An hour and a half's professional practical tuition for 20 euros each (in 2014) around Corcubión Bay can be arranged for you. If you prefer a kayak to a sailing boat, the same deal is available.

If you can tear yourselves away from the sea for a day, then do visit the jewel of granite architecture and history that is Santiago de Compostela. You can drive there on a cross-country route that won’t take more than an hour and a half.

It’s the sea and the estuary coast that will be the main draw, though. At this location, you are ideally situated for exploring both Low and High Rías of the Galician coast, with beaches in both directions.

There are a couple of local café-bars restaurants (close to a convenient off-road parking area near the villa) and other restaurants up and down the coast that we can recommend.

YOUR REVIEWS

Igor | August | 2014

Overall we were very happy with our rental house. the house was very well supplied with all that anyone would require. one point though we were not aware that we had to provide our own beach towels - perhaps this was in the information you sent us but we did not see it. the owner was most pleasant and helpful. if there was one issue with the house it is the house itself is a bit dark and damp but seeing as it is about 200 years old it is a minor point."

Rustical Update

The owner has agreed to provide beach towels for all future bookings.
