Perched on a cliff overlooking the Vigo Estuary in Galicia, northern Spain, sits this attractive five-bedroom home. Whitewashed walls, swathes of natural light and unfussy decor make it a comfortable and homely place. The ground floor open-plan living area is a relaxing space with huge arched windows that bring in the outside. The lounge is the perfect spot to unwind with its comfy wicker sofas, huge patio doors, and glorious views of the sea. There’s even an open fireplace to keep things cosy on cooler nights.

Overlooking the lounge is a dining table seating eight people, and leading off from here is a galley kitchen kitted out with microwave, dishwasher and cooking utensils. There are four bedrooms on this floor featuring two single and two double beds. Rooms are light and airy, and one also has a modern en-suite toilet. There’s also a separate bathroom with a shower.

Tiled steps lead up to the first floor and a huge main suite. Spacious, uncluttered, and breezy, it’s a fantastic space and features a double bed, sofa bed, and cot for little ones. There’s also a lovely en-suite bathroom with a hydromassage bath. But the real bonus here is the stunning terrace. In the morning, you’ll want to slide open the glass doors and step outside. It’s the perfect place to spend a lazy morning relaxing on a lounger and soaking up the panoramic views of the bay.

Although the interior is inviting, it is the outside that beckons from almost every room in the house. From the ground floor, step out onto the terrace and plunge into the swimming pool. Alternatively, top up your tan on a lounger, snooze in the shade, or simply sit and stare at the glorious sea views. There’s also a garden on a lower level, and kids will love to run free on the lawn and play on the swings. And that’s not all. From the property, narrow steps lead down to your own small beach.

Whether you choose to spend your day in the sea or pool, come evening, gather everyone together on the terrace. Light the stone barbeque and dine al fresco at the outdoor table while watching the sun dissolve into the bay. Villa Souto is located in a quiet neighbourhood in the coastal village of Soutoxuste. While it overlooks rolling mountains and the glorious estuary of Vigo, it’s only 2km from nearby restaurants and shops.

Villa Souto is located in Galicia’s south in northern Spain. Surrounded by forest and overlooking Vigo Bay, this region is well-known for its wild and beautiful landscape. There are a number of walking trails in the area, and bird watchers will enjoy spotting kestrels, spoonbills and white storks. The coastline is also dramatic and dotted with little fishing villages, long sandy beaches and unspoilt offshore islands. Galicia is also famed for having some of the best seafood plucked straight from the Atlantic. From the property, it’s 2km to the nearest restaurant, where you can sample the region’s signature dish of octopus sprinkled with olive oil and paprika. Other seafood delights include clams, mussels, and scallops, which can be enjoyed with a glass of local, fruity white Albarino wine.

Guests at Villa Souto also have direct access to their own private beach. Use the villa’s kayak and explore the coastline or spend the day swimming and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters. Alternatively, it’s a 5-minute drive to Praia de Cesantes. This quiet, sandy beach is a good place to relax, and the calm waters make it safe for the whole family. Children can fly their kites here, while older ones can try their hand at windsurfing.

The nearby coastal city of Vigo is also worth exploring. A 20-minute drive from the villa, it’s considered to be Galicia’s artistic capital. Stroll through the Old Town with its art galleries and wicker shops and visit the cathedral dating back to 1811. There’s also a Museum of Contemporary Art where you can learn about Galician authors and admire the artwork of upcoming artists. Also worth a visit is the Castro de Vigo, an archaeological site featuring the reconstruction of pre-Roman dwellings. It shows what life was like in Vigo between the third and first centuries BC. From the site, walk up the Castro Mountain and be rewarded with spectacular views of the estuary from the top.

North from the property, it’s a 25-minute drive to another charming historic city, Pontevedra. This is where Columbus’ ship, the Santa Maria, was built and is a good place to spend a day. Stroll around the Old Town with its network of streets and squares and admire the ancient buildings and churches dating back to the thirteenth century. Browse the markets and shops, then enjoy a coffee in the buzzy Praza da Ferreria. The square is overlooked by the fourteenth-century Igrexa de San Francisco, founded (it’s thought) by St Francis of Assisi.

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.


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.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Souto is a wonderful space for the whole family. Children will love the generously sized bedrooms with their mix of single and double beds on the ground floor and the large outdoor terrace. Kids can spend the day splashing in the swimming pool, relaxing on a sun lounger and surfing the Wifi or battling it out on the ping-pong table. Younger ones will also love the swings in the garden. And if they want to feel the sand between their toes, it’s just a few steps to a private beach. Here they can spend the day swimming, snorkelling or exploring the coastline in the villa’s two-seater kayak.

After a day’s activity, the outdoor dining table is the perfect place to congregate. Throw some fish on the barbeque and enjoy a family meal al fresco, then kick back and watch as the sun dips below Vigo bay. For evening entertainment, there’s a TV in the lounge so everyone can later gather on the comfortable sofa and enjoy watching a film.

For more daytime activity, head to Praia de Cesantes, a 5-minute drive from the villa. This quiet, sandy beach is a good place for a swim, and the shallow waters make it safe for the whole family. Small children can fly their kites here, while older ones can try their hand at windsurfing or surfing. The villa is also ideally placed for those who enjoy nature, and the whole family can spend the day hiking through the forest parks or exploring the area on a bicycle.

The coastal city of Vigo is also worth a visit. A 20-minute drive from the villa, it has plenty of galleries, museums and historic buildings that kids of all ages can explore. Don’t miss the Museum of Contemporary Art (MARCO). Originally a prison, it is home to a variety of exhibitions and covers architecture, video, sculpture and fashion. While in Vigo, kids might also like to visit the zoo located just outside the city centre. Here they can learn about the ecosystem and view lions, tigers and bears, plus spiders and reptiles. Afterwards, be sure to stop for a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. Adventurous children might even like to sample Galicia’s famous seafood - mussels, clams or even octopus.
