Overview

Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Quirky and charming are the buzzwords at one-bedroom Combarro Lodge in Galicia, Northern Spain. Set right on the shore in the old fishing town of Combarro is this old salt warehouse turned cute holiday cottage. Sleeping up to three people, it’s perfect for a couples’ or a small family getaway. Not only will you get a comfy – and majorly Instagrammable – space to sleep and relax in, but far-reaching views of the deep blue sea. It’s so close to the water, that you can feed the fish right from the living room and hear the soothing sounds of gently lapping waves while you sleep.

The cottage pays homage to its nautical roots with seaside-style décor in some of its artwork and its small porthole-style windows. The walls feature beautiful exposed stone and are elegantly contrasted with the cottage’s modern furniture and colourful soft furnishings. Kick back on the sofa with a book from the bookcase or watch a film on the television – all the while light is shining through from the nearby window, allowing you to make the most of those sea views, too.

There’s a small dining table and a kitchen at Combarro Lodge, so you can eat in without hassle. The latter is equipped with a microwave, fridge and cooker and classic-styled crockery. The bedroom is directly above the kitchen – just climb up the short ladder – for the cosy, loft-style space with a double bed. There’s also a bathroom with walk-in shower on the lower floor, near the entrance of the villa, and it also continues the nautical theme with its fun starfish and blue window shutters.

Combarro itself is a beautiful and historic town, with lots of cobbled streets to wander along, plus bars and restaurants with terraces to sit out on. You can pick up your fresh produce here for cooking back at the cottage, too, or can try some of the local Galicia delights, including steamed mussels and octopus. From the cottage, it’s only a five-minute walk to the sandy beach, and a few minutes’ by car to more must-see towns like Sanxenxo and Pontevedra.

What you should know…

  • This villa’s cosy and the ceilings aren’t very high. You also need to climb a short ladder to get into the bedroom, so it’s not suitable for those with reduced mobility

Combarro Lodge is right on the water in the time-stood-still fishing village of Combarro in Galicia, northern Spain. Thanks to its location, you won’t be surprised to hear that it’s the perfect place to try fresh seafood. Popular dishes include octopus, shellfish and mussels. You can spend afternoons here wandering along the cobbled streets or watching the world go by at a seafront restaurant. There’s also a sandy beach, a short five-minute walk away – it’s on the edge of the village.

The region of Galicia itself is known for its green valleys, rugged mountains and wild beaches. Think bagpipes playing and baroque cathedrals, too – so, you might feel more like you’re in Scotland than Spain. From Combarro, you can explore other must-see places like Sanxenxo and Pontevedra.

Pontevedra is beautiful and has a well-preserved old town. Stand in the shadows of the churches and wander through the charming squares here, before sampling local cuisine in one of the bars and restaurants. Fresh seafood like octopus, or other Galician specialities like empanada gallega – a large pie usually filled with meat – are on the menu. Then, wash it down with a glass of Albarino wine. 

More worth-exploring cities include Vilanova de Cerveira and Caminha. You could also make tracks for Vigo, Porto or Tui. The latter is a Romanesque and gothic village that’s steeped in history. Take in the cathedral and churches there, before heading to the mountain of Aloia nearby. If you climb to the top, you’ll be rewarded with views of Vigo estuary and the Louro valley below.

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.

Thanks to its idyllic location, right by the water, this cottage is perfect for small families seeking peace, quiet and an authentic Spanish holiday experience. The cottage can sleep two adults and one child and is only a short five-minute walk from the nearest sandy beach. Amenities like shops, supermarkets and restaurants are all within easy reach in Combarro village, too.

Kids can feed fish right from your living room window or can swim and play at the nearest beach. For fun days out, you can head to Pontevedra town where the whole family can get clued up on the local history and explore the historic old town. Or, you could make tracks for other sight-packed towns like Tui. At the latter, you can climb to the top of the mountain of Aloia for wow-worthy views of the Louro valley below.

You could also visit Dunas de Corrubedo – a natural park with a big sand dune that kids can roll down to reach Playa do Vilar Beach. Water lovers instead? Hop on a boat to Illas Cies – a footprint-free group of islands off the coast of Vigo. Here, you can swim and scuba dive in the surrounding waters.

  • Romantic little getaway

    Posted by James on 18/02/2019

    My wife and I were impressed with this house. Upon arrival, the views of the sea are impressive. The decoration is as seen in the photos. The stay is very comfortable and you can walk to the best restaurants in the area. There are a variety of places to eat & drink and sleeping in this type of houses is an experience! I recommend it to anyone looking to surprise their partner.
