Galicia itself is a hidden gem, and still remains largely off the typical tourist trail, making it an ideal destination for an authentic Spanish retreat. Casa Kinkan is located in a quiet village, in the Valley of A Mahía, just a ten-minute drive from the Galician capital of Santiago, a bustling and lively city full of culture and historical landmarks. Guests can walk to the local shops, restaurants and supermarkets, or take a day trip to the historical city of Santiago.

The historic city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, which considered it one of the most beautiful urban areas in the world. There are many reasons to visit this city: history, nature, leisure or gastronomy are some of the things that tourists can enjoy. Visit the famous cathedral, Saint Sign of Santiago, and get lost in the narrow streets and squares that make up its historic quarter with centuries of history and majestic buildings, many of them from medieval times.

The Cathedral Museum spreads over four floors and incorporates the cathedral's large 16th-century Gothic-Plateresque cloister. You'll see a sizeable section of Maestro Mateo's original carved-stone choir (destroyed in 1604 but pieced back together in 1999), an impressive collection of religious art (including the Botafumeiros in the second-floor library), the lavishly decorated 18th-century sala capitular, a room of tapestries woven from designs by Goya, and, off the cloister, the Panteón de Reyes, with tombs of kings of medieval León.

Santiago's food market is a fascinating, always lively scene, very clean, with masses of fresh produce from the seas and countryside attractively displayed at 300-odd stalls. Stock up on Tetilla cheese, cured meats, sausage, fruit, empanada (pastry pie) or the tasty take-away dishes of Cocina María for a picnic. Numerous bars and cafes line the street outside, and there are several more within the market itself, including a wine bar in the central alley.

Outside of Santiago, guests can visit The Fervenza do Toxa, one of the highest waterfalls in Spain. Surrounded by a lush forest of oak, chestnut, birch and other native species that form a unique landscape that captivates the visitor. Guests can also take a trip to El Pazo de Oca, one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Other must-see cities like Vilanova de Cerveira and Caminha are close by too.

The coast of Rias Baixas, located just a half an hour drive away, is full of charming restaurants, cafes, and is home to a beautiful beach. The nearest airport is Santiago de Compostela Airport, just a short drive from Casa Kinkan, so getting there couldn’t be easier!

About the Island & 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.

Kids

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

Casa Kinkan offers ample room for a large family, with a large garden that is perfect for families with kids. The private pool will keep children entertained for hours! The central location means all amenities are within walking distance for ease. A cot and high-chair can also be provided.

Santiago, just a ten-minute drive away, is a great place to take kids; nothing compares to exploring the winding narrow streets of Santiago de Compostela’s Old Town on foot. But walking all day can get exhausting for children (and parents too!). The Santiago de Compostela tourist train is a fun way to see the main sights in a short period of time, or to simply take a break and enjoy the views while you get off your feet.

The Museum of the Galician People is an interesting and fun way to learn about the history of the local people and their culture. Kids love interactive and visual learning, and this museum is a perfect activity for the whole family. Adults can stimulate their minds while the kids have fun interacting with the various hands-on exhibits.

Santiago has a number of well-maintained parks that are great fun for little kids. Nearly every green area houses a kids’ playground, some of which have been designed by leading architects such as this one in The Metropolitan Park near the zoo. The Mirador Parque da Alameda is a beautiful park with excellent views of Santiago city. Kids can feed the swans, run around a playground or attempt a workout on the public exercise equipment. It’s right next to the old part of town, so you can use it to take a break any time of day (shady trees are plentiful).

The Santiago Zoo will certainly go down a treat with children; lions, tigers, snakes and all kinds of animals are available to view here. You can also take the funicular from the zoo to the top of Cerro San Cristobal. You can either take it from the bottom of the hill, next to the entrance of the zoo, or half way up the hill from within the zoo itself. The ride is fun for children and the views of the city from the top of the hill are definitely a sight worth seeing.

If a beach is what you want, the amazing coastline of Rias Baixas is a mere thirty-minute drive away! Here, you will find a range of beautiful beaches, pretty beachside restaurants and a range of water sports activities on offer.
