With a sublime modern twist on a luxurious old farmhouse, Villa Miniu is an unmissable delight for up to eight guests, located in a stunning area of Galicia, right on the Portuguese border!

This magnificent rural location is echoed in the traditional architecture of this Galician country home, with vaulted ceilings, exposed interior stone walls and highly polished, wooden flooring throughout. The living spaces within offer a majestic array of charming vintage furniture blended with contemporary comforts. Your immense kitchen perfectly demonstrates this, with a sleek and stylish design and all the latest mod cons, with a central island which doubles as a breakfast bar, built around the stone structure and artefacts of the property, with a large dining table for the whole group beside it. The lounge is a cosy space, with a large sofa and two plush seats in front of the television and fireplace to one end and a second dining table to the other. Elegant, original furniture and crockery adds to the rustic, historical beauty.

There are four sublime double bedrooms, each vibrant and colourful, embodying the same fusion of traditional characteristics and more modern touches. The first three rooms are in the main building, one of which is an ensuite, while there is an additional ensuite bedroom in the magnificent annexe. Alongside the rooms are three excellent bathrooms. Each has a wonderful attention to detail, with colourful tiling, delicate wooden pieces and fantastic modern showers.

In this incredible garden you can enjoy an extensive lawn, lined with mature trees and a traditional stone wall across the perimeter of the grounds. An 8 by 4 meter pool for your exclusive pleasure will provide endless hours of fun in the sunshine for all the guests, while there is much to explore across the rest of the space! With a terrace and barbecue area for the full alfresco living experience.

In the surrounding area you will find quiet villages, small vineyards, rolling hills and even the river Miño which flows just meters from the house, and forms the border with Portugal!

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The Portuguese border is just meters from the house, don’t venture in accidentally!

Just moments from the Portuguese border and nestled amid in the rolling countryside of the far north-west of Spain, Villa Miniu is in the perfect location to enjoy a holiday of total calm and breath-taking natural beauty!

Perhaps literally a stone’s throw to the south is the Portuguese border and the enchanting region of Minho, with a fascinating history and sublime natural landscape! It is a fantastic, largely rural region on the northernmost Atlantic tip of Portugal and shares many attributes with Galicia. Minho is perhaps most famous as the home of the Vinho Verde, a crisp, dry white wine (although as the name suggests, it is in fact green!) best enjoyed with a local fish dish.

Less than an hour away is the largest city in Galicia, Vigo, a cultural centre with a fascinating history, boasting stunning architecture, many regular markets and the beautiful Museo Municipal de Vigo. Nearby you can enjoy the breath-taking nature reserve of Islas Cíes with dazzling white-sand beaches and azure waters! Vigo-Peinador International Airport is 15 km from the centre of Vigo with several national flights and season-dependent flights to Paris, Brussels and London.

Meanwhile, just a few minutes further north is Pontevedra, a deeply historical and beautiful city which welcomes visitors to enjoy incredible sightseeing, a myriad of festivals throughout the year and tons of fabulous nearby beaches.

With a fully pedestrianised 300,000 square meter medieval centre, you can enjoy carefree wandering in Spain’s most accessible city! Local delights include wine served in a bowl in many of the smaller pubs on the backstreets, affordable octopus and all kids of treats including ‘queixo galego’ and ‘pan galego’ (local bread and cheeses) from the regular farmers' market by the river.

Within the city, the Museo Provincial de Pontevedra is considered to be one of the finest historical/archaeological museums in Spain, while the Rias Bajas (Rias Baixas) coastal region has flourishing coastlines, mountains, rivers, lakes and estuaries that ooze incredible natural beauty.

With a breath-taking coastline that meets the powerful Atlantic Ocean, Galicia is a paradise for beach holidays and nature lovers, as well as the keen surfer, or indeed even those looking to try it for the first time, with plenty of surfing schools all along the calmer sections of the coast.

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. This small island, just off Vigo, has 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.
