Overview

Looking for an easy cottage in a natural setting where you can combine country and beach holidays? Look no further and read on, as this winsome cottage surrounded by pristine rural nature may well tick all boxes for you.

Set in an inspiring and authentic location off the beaten track, this endearing cottage with a climbing vine on the façade is ideal for those looking for a simple holiday home from where to explore both Galician bucolic nature and its stunning coastline of splendid beaches and magnificent cliffs. 

The three bed hamlet cottage is surrounded by lush nature, a ten minute walk to basic amenities and a five minute drive to the nearest beach.

Even if no luxuries are to be found in this cute cottage, the real treat here is the wonderful setting in the Rias Altas, one of the least explored areas in Galicia, and the endless opportunities for exploring and outings such as nearby traditional fishing villages like pretty Barqueiro town –one of our favourites, with an open swimming pool and restaurants by the harbour–, as well as forests and walks with ocean views, traditional Galician restaurants or historical towns to name a few.

There is something special about the area, the surroundings being perfect for disconnecting and enjoying simple but very fulfilling holidays.

The cottage enjoys an enviable tranquility, with the owners as discreet and very helpful neighbours with independent access to their house. They respect their guests' privacy and they are simply on hand if needed. You will also have a pretty garden for your sole enjoyment: it is quiet and has lots of flowers, which makes for a lovely colourful little spot to sit, relax and take in the sun.

Up on the first floor are three very agreeable bedrooms which are (as well as the rest of the cottage) tastefully decorated in soft colours, which makes this holiday home very pleasant, relaxing and welcoming.

On our visit, we found all beds were provided with canopy netting, a sweet touch adding to the overall pleasing atmosphere. The stairs leading to the rooms on this floor are rather steep, which may make this property unsuitable for anyone with reduced mobility. Those with small children should also bear this in mind, particularly as the only bathroom is downstairs. To ensure peace of mind of the parents, the staircase is gated at both ends and can be locked at the for child safety and the cottage is completely child friendly, with a very safe garden and surrounds as well as some toys available on request: some happy regular guests here are actually families with little ones! 

The practical open plan kitchen and dining area offers most basic facilities for self-catering. It is simple, clean, and perfectly adequate, its beamed ceilings and stone walls giving it all a distinct and very pleasant rustic character. The homely and inviting living room provides the ideal spot for cozy nights in and spending time together.

The cottage is within walking distance to basic facilities such as a local bar and a small supermarket, as well as the light railway station. The tremendous country and coastal scenery of the area, the pretty fishing villages and exploring opportunities along with the Rias Altas area cuisine and rural but exciting ways of life –it's easy to come across one of the all year round celebrations such as festivals and fairs going on– can definitely make for a most memorable holiday.

YOUR REVIEWS

Alison | July | 2017

This charming cottage is minutes from beautiful beaches. Keith and Ruth made our stay even sweeter letting our boys roam freely in their lovely garden, feed their horses and shared garden produce with us. Relaxing and Restful. Falling asleep to the sound of an owl hooting was a treat."

Gordon | September | 2016

We had a very relaxing holiday in a very beautiful and peaceful place. The hosts Ruth and Keith were very generous with the produce from their market garden and we had lots of delicious vegetables. When we had a problem with our car they were very helpful in getting us back on the road. We would definitely like to go again."

Lucy | July | 2016

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful spot. Possibly the most comfortable bed and most powerful shower we have had in over twenty years of renting holiday homes, I have never slept so well. The owners were always there if you needed them, were friendly and helpful and provided all sorts of extras, veg from the garden, anti mosquito stuff etc. There is an excellent selection of books so no need to pack piles of holiday reading. The perfect spot for a holiday away from the world."

Simon | June | 2016

Everything about the holiday was brilliant. Firstly, the directions were good from La Coruna. Then the cottage was perfect when we arrived. Owners Keith and Ruth were very nice. And their dog, Winnie! They gave us veg, eggs fruit and water as soon as we arrived. They were very helpful and were always there if we needed something. The location was perfect for what we wanted, quiet, scenic, great food and the people were very friendly. We would definitely return Thanks Simon"

Jeremy | June | 2016

We found the cottage to be exactly what we hope for and the owners were really helpful and friendly. The information and support from Rustical travel was also excellent. The countryside and beaches around AG30 were beautiful and lived up to the descriptions. We would not hesitate to book with Rustical travel again and would highly recommend the cottage we stayed in. Many thanks."
