This cosy, three-bedroom villa is located in the Spanish region of Galicia and has a swimming pool, a large garden, and views of the surrounding Galician countryside.

Located fifteen minutes by car from the coastal town of A Guarda, you'll feel like you're soaking up Spanish history as soon as you walk through the door. The traditional country house has been restored and combines a traditional aesthetic with Mediterranean chic. The property makes generous use of wood and stone in keeping with the surrounding region's landscape and traditional architecture.

Upon arrival at the villa, you'll make your way into the living/dining area, which features a TV and a fireplace, perfect for cosying up on cooler nights. In the daytime, open up the windows and admire the stunning garden view while the warm Spanish air flows through the house. The traditional style of the house is complemented by antique furniture, and the high ceilings and earthy decor will make you feel like you're in a home away from home. There are two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, all tastefully decorated in neutral colours and each with a perfectly tiled en-suite bathroom.

The living area opens into a fully-equipped kitchen decorated with woods, marble and tiles. Those that need their morning cup of java will be delighted that the kitchen comes with a coffee machine. Once that's prepared, head outside to the covered patio and bask in the peace and quiet as the sun rises. The patio overlooks the pool and is set on the edge of a charming garden with touches of colourful flora. If you're in the mood to dine al fresco, the barbecue is there and perfect for some outdoor entertaining. Sip your wine and gaze across the terracotta rooftops of Tomiño, or spend your days reclining on the sun loungers. Sun worshippers will be in their element in the garden, and it's easy to see why guests spend hours here topping up their tans.

The small Spanish town of Tomino is close to the River Mino valley, which homes four spectacular beaches. Naturally formed by the estuary of the river, the beaches run along the last two kilometres of the river delta and offer spectacular views of Portugal. Surrounded by pine woods, the beaches provide all the rest and relaxation of the surrounding sea beaches, plus pleasant shade for the sizzling summer weather.

A thirty-minute drive from the villa is Baiona, one of Spain's most memorable coastal towns. A historic medieval city, the town features a beautiful bay surrounded by pretty, cobbled streets steeped in history and is home to Monterreal Fort and its famous Principe Tower with three kilometres of defensive walls. Construction on the fort began in the 12th century and was completed in the 16th century. In 1493, Baiona was the first town in Europe to learn of the discovery of the Americas, thanks to the arrival of a fleet of ships bringing the news. A replica of La Pinta, one of the ships from Christopher Columbus' voyage, is there to visit in the harbour. If you're a history buff, the 18th-century Santa Maria Collegiate Church is also well worth visiting to admire the flourishes of romanesque architecture.

The town perfectly combines gastronomy and culture. From the castle, you can watch the sunset and then settle down for a seafood dinner at one of the many restaurants serving up delicious tapas. If you feel like letting your hair down, Baiona has a typical "wine area", which gets very lively in the evening. Head to one of the taverns where you can enjoy Galician cuisine in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere, have a drink after dinner and enjoy this authentic Spanish area full of bars, tapas shops and restaurants.

The jewel in the crown of Baiona is undoubtedly the Cies islands, an archipelago comprised of three unspoiled islands, Monte Agudo, O Faro, and San Martino, known for their stunning bays, crystal waters, lush flora, and unique wildlife. The islands are a protected environment, and there are four walking trails, all boasting spectacular views and even a bird observatory!

A fifty-minute drive away is Pontevedra which prides itself on tradition and hospitality. The city has plenty of historic buildings, churches, monuments, attractive plazas and a large shopping district. The old town begins to really thrive at night, with lively bars creating a vibrant atmosphere which continues well into the early hours. If you're feeling really adventurous (and remember your passport), you can head south to Portugal's Costa Verde region and take in the endless beaches and pine woods which hug the coastline.

About the Region & Getting There

About Galicia

Like many parts of Spain, Galicia has its very own identity that has remained intact through its regional dialect and distinguishing culture. Although Galicia is recognised for its holy traditions, we urge budding tourists to also consider its astonishing green countryside & rivers and its UNESCO World Heritage sites. Occasionally you may even hear the gentle tootling of bagpipes, known locally as the Galician Gaita, along this northern corner of the Iberian Peninsula.

You're likely to fly into Santiago de Compostela, which is the capital of Galicia and is probably best known for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage and its route. Many of the travellers embark on this journey by foot and tend to be mesmerised by this fine city at the end of their trek. Casco Viejo, or the Old Town, is a good place to end or even start your holiday. This area of the city is blessed with markets, restaurants, bars and buildings from a bygone era. After exhausting yourself in the busyness of the city, take a day trip to Praia de Rodas, on the gorgeous Cíes Islands. These small islands, accessible by boat from Vigo, Baiona, or Cangas, have been noted as having some of the best beaches in the world. It has to be seen to be believed!

Galicia is divided into four key regions: A Coruña, Lugo, Ourense and our favourite – Pontevedra. A Galician proverb states that 'Pontevedra gives water to travellers'. We firmly believe this to be true, as this particular part of Galicia has everything a traveller could need for an unforgettable experience and it almost feels like this city is constantly giving back. Whilst you holiday in Pontevedra you will realise that days are structured around mealtime. And why wouldn't they be? With some of the best seafood you will experience in Spain and the noteworthy Albariño wine, you may notice your jeans feeling a little tighter toward the end of your holiday. You will be glad to know that your waistline need not be a cause for concern though! Pontevedra is blessed with some of the best hiking trails, medieval monasteries, estuaries, and valleys within Spain. Don't forget about the coastline either! Rarely you will you find so many empty beaches, so make the most of this privacy and just embrace the nature around you.

Galicia is still an unspoilt part of the world. It has everything a diverse group of friends & family need to have a glorious adventure.

Xacobeo (Holy Year)

2022 is a great year to visit Galicia because it's the Holy Year! The Xacobeo year (pronounced sa-co-bay-oh) celebrates the time when the last stone of Santiago's original cathedral was placed, and an important priest decided on a feast to celebrate. When it is the Holy Year, the Puerta Santa (holy door) of the Santiago Cathedral remains open for pilgrims for the whole year, and its closing marks the end of the Holy Year. The Xacobeo year only happens every 5,6, or 11 years, whenever July 25th occurs on a Sunday, which is also the National Day of Galicia and Saint James. The Xacobeo year means that the Camino trail is busier than ever, and there are plenty of festivities to enjoy, so it's a perfect time to visit the region and explore what it has to offer! Check out the official website here to learn more.

 

Getting There

Galicia is served by either Santiago de Compostela Airport, A Coruña Airport, or Vigo Airport. Various train lines connect the main cities and towns of Galicia to other destinations in Northern and Central Spain. Hop on and enjoy the view from your comfy seat; there's even a Galician Tourist Train pass! This discounted rail pass gives you access to various rail routes created by the Galician Regional Government and based on key elements of the region. Follow the Lighthouse Route along the northern coastline and stop to admire the lighthouses and gorgeous sea views, or hop on and follow one of the Ribeira Sacra Wine Routes to visit the lovely towns and wineries where acclaimed Galician wines are made and enjoyed. Check out the government website to grab your pass and plan your trip!

From the UK:
Direct flights are available from London with easyJet, Ryanair, Vueling, and many others. Although, travellers should be aware that Vigo Airport only receives domestic flights, so a stopover is needed if you wish to travel to this airport. Chartered flights are also available from several other UK airports.

Kids will love a trip to the Cíes Islands. These real-life treasure islands reportedly hold buried treasure, and according to legend, Francis Drake used to hide out in the secluded coves of the archipelago. With all this talk of pirate past, it's not hard to get the imagination of the little ones excited about this rugged piece of beauty just fifty minutes from Baiona on the ferry. Kids can go snorkelling and kayaking in the clean, clear waters of the archipelago, which are home to more than 100 species of marine life. There's also a campsite which organises free children's activities in the morning and evening. Here they can make new friends in the play area, have fun playing organised games, or get crafty at workshops.

Monte Real yacht club holds sailing courses and a summer sailing school, where kids can head out onto the blue waters of the harbour for a few hours with experienced staffers. For the committed junior sailors, take advantage of the club's weekly sailing course for children between seven and sixteen years old, which includes a specialised trainer and all the necessary equipment.

An hour's drive north will take you to the Rías Baixas. Famous for its tranquil beaches, the area also has reputable horse riding schools, which will take enthusiastic riders to see the stunning landscapes of the region. A thirty-minute drive from Baiona will bring you to the area of Ribeira Sacra, where you can take an excursion on horseback through colourful landscapes full of natural beauty with views overlooking the rivers.

Hiring bikes is a popular way to get around Baiona, and families can head off to one of the many beaches that surround the town or spend the day peddling around the pretty town centre. Either way, be sure to stock up on some delicious local produce for a picnic and a day out the whole family can enjoy.
