When meal times call, pull up a wooden chair around the alfresco table – it’s shade of a pretty vine and flower-covered pergola.

If you’re looking for a holiday with authentic Spanish charm, Villa Pelayo is your go-to. From the villa, it’s a short walk to the centre of Pedra with its cobbled streets and pretty square. There, you can pick up fresh produce to cook back at the villa, browse bespoke items in the small shops or stop for a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants. For the nature lovers, there are several hiking routes that go to must-see sights including the bridges of the river Lerez, the abandoned village of Vichocuntin, the chapel of Serrapia or the petroglyphs of Pedre. It’s only 17 minutes by car to livelier Pontevedra city and 25 minutes to the nearest coastal beaches for swimming and sunbathing on soft sands.

Villa Pelayo is in the sleepy town of Pedra in Pontevedra, northern Spain. It’s a peaceful location surrounded by top-notch hiking routes. They go to must-see sights like go to must-see sights the bridges of the river Lerez, the abandoned village of Vichocuntin and the chapel of Serrapia. Spend afternoons wandering along the cobbled streets in the town or browse artistic products in the square. This part of Spain is also renowned for its seafood, so you can try the local dishes at a restaurant here, including octopus, shellfish and mussels.

The region of Galacia 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. There’s a beach a short 25-minute drive from the villa for swimming and sunbathing. It’s also a short 17 minute’ drive to the livelier town of Pontevedra. Here, you’ll find a well-preserved old town to explore. Snap pictures of the historic churches and monasteries and wander through the charming squares here, before sampling local cuisine in one of the bars and restaurants. Galician specialties like Empanada Gallega – a large pie usually filled with meat – are on the menu. Then, wash it down with a glass of famous Albarino wine. Pontevedra’s covered market is also well worth a visit – you can pick up famous tetilla cheese or tarta de Santiago (an almond tart) there.

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.
