Wow! The style and attention to detail in this beautiful four-bedroom hillside villa is amazing! Villa Alvarinha is situated in a prime position in Meano, near Pontevedra in Galicia, close to the wonderful A Lanzada beach. Sleeping eight, it is just perfect for a family or group of friends.

With fantastic, engrossing views overlooking the Salnes Valley and the Atlantic Ocean, Villa Alvarinha is a brilliant choice for a relaxing holiday close to historic towns and close to wide expanses of glorious white sandy beaches.

The house is immaculate in detail yet wonderfully warm and comfortable. The private walled garden is absolutely stunning with wonderful sculptures as well as the amazing 8x5m pool with hydromassage and incredible planting. To the side of house you will find a lovely quiet covered area decked out with fabulous cushioned seating – just perfect to relax, play a game of cards or just chat! There are many beautiful areas of the garden to be quiet – look out for the hammock and the small seating area close to some of the sculptures! Lovely family dinners can be prepared on the barbecue.

Inside the house, the artwork will be much admired. The living areas are sumptuous and inviting. The kitchen is fantastic and also home to a huge collection of books for your enjoyment. The welcome pack provided is a good start. For gym fanatics there is some good equipment to keep up your exercise.

On the first floor there are two very stylish, tasteful double bedrooms and a twin. Some of the bedrooms have fantastic sloping beamed ceilings and full height windows/doors to the lovely balconies. Seats have been placed so that you can chill and take in the breath-taking views. One of the bedrooms can be an independent studio as it has its own kitchen and bathroom. The cute balcony overlooks the pool and garden and is a peaceful haven for a late-night drink or to enjoy that holiday read. Located on the top floor, there is a master king bedroom with ensuite and another lovely terrace offering incredible views. There are five bathrooms in total – two with baths and three with showers.

Villa Alvarinha is a thrillingly beautiful, remarkable place to book for your holiday, in an ideal location for peace, tranquillity and family fun as well as being close to local attractions.

Villa Alvarinha is in a very tranquil location with views beyond belief. It is still so close to everything you might want to visit and within 200m of a restaurant and 500m of a shop. It is close to a golf course if that is an attraction.

Playa de la Lanzada is one of the great Galician beaches and is a very popular. With over 3km of long white sand backed by stunning dunes, it is not to be missed. The water is very blue and clear and the sunsets to die for! Don’t forget your camera! Playa Area das Pipas has lots of rocks and tide pools which can be great fun. Backed by pine trees it is very picturesque. It can feel like you have your own private beach in places.

Millions of scallop shells adorn the beautiful little church at Ermita de San Sebastian on Isla de la Toja. It is definitely worth a visit.

The historical city of Pontevedra is a fantastic day out. The beautiful, well-preserved old town and Gothic Santa Maria la Mayor Basilica are incredible. It combines history, culture and style into a fun, lively place. The interlocking cute lanes and picturesque plazas are buzzing with shops, markets, cafes and tapas bars.

Most visitors to Galicia are interested in the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail and Santiago de Compostela. It is an interesting city with magnificent stone architecture and a famous cathedral. The skirl of bagpipes might make you think you are in Scotland. The charming restaurants and bars specialise in fine delicious Galician seafood and local wines.

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.

Parents with young children will feel very secure with them playing in the private, walled garden with its automatic gate. It is a great place for hide and seek! Children will have hours of pleasure swimming and playing in the pool. The attractive water spout will be great fun! In the house the lounge has a television, DVD player and plenty of board games.

Playa de la Lanzada will be amazing for them with its wide expanses of white sand, fantastic waves and surfing clubs and other water sports. You might want to research and book a surfing or kite surfing course. Perhaps you might want to join in with them!

Aldea de Os Grobits on Isla de la Toja is very cool for kids with its little hobbit houses. You can walk to the Isla de la Toja. There is a small, well run aquarium at O Grove which gives children a good idea of the sea life that you can find in Galicia. Further away is the Illa de Arousa and the Carreiron Natural Park. It is listed as a special protection zone for heron bird populations and other birds. The island boasts some impressive beaches.

Children will enjoy fun days in Ponevedra with their families, exploring the old town and eating a lot of tapas! The history is interesting and there is so much to do and see.

This area is a lovely location for a family holiday. The natural environment is very refreshing and beautiful, as are the beaches. There is a lot of varied entertainment to be found.

    Posted by Stephen on 25/08/2019

    Excellent property and an owner who clearly has some taste and a sense of what is needed to make a holiday in his house something to remember. Great location close enough to everything but also in a very tranquil location with views beyond belief. We loved it and this is probably the first time that I think we will be wanting to go back to the same place.
