Make a holiday cottage in A Estrada your home away from home

A Estrada holiday cottages are nestled in Galicia’s rich, verdant scenery, but not far from its wild coastline and medieval towns and cities.

A uniting characteristic is rural seclusion – cottages in A Estrada are pleasingly rustic, stone buildings set in generous grounds, giving you all the breathing space you need for a peaceful holiday. There’s no shortage of things to see nearby, with waterfalls, low-mountains and rich historical heritage all within a few kilometres.

Things to do

-Local history. Considered by some to be Galicia’s answer to Versailles, Oca Palace is a dignified 16th Century Renaissance building surrounded by neatly tended gardens. It started out as a fortress but was converted in the 1600s and 1700s. It’s free to enter, and inside you’ll find a beautiful courtyard with an elaborate fountain cut from Carrara marble. Also lovely are the numerous examples of medieval Romanesque architecture in the area – see Santa María de Frades or San Lournzo de Ouzande.

-Nature. With green, wooded valleys and tall hills all around there’s no need to resist the call of the great outdoors. Hikers could walk the circular Mount Cabalar route, which is 11 kilometres long and gives you a good look at local agriculture, natural species, as well as hints of prehistoric human settlement. Adventurous mountain bikers might ride the challenging Rap das Bestas trail, known for both its woodland scenery and tough challenge.

-Coast. 40 kilometres west of A Estrada is the village of Catoira, which sits at the mouth of the River Ulla. On the Arousa Estuary there are some excellent river beaches, and there’s also lots of history here as Catoira was once an important coastal defence – you can see the remnants of its towers - Torres del Oeste, built in the 800s to repel Viking attacks.

-Gastronomy. Pontevedra’s position on the Atlantic coast means the quality of seafood, especially shellfish, is exceptional in this province – mussels, lobsters, scallops and varieties of prawns are all exquisite here. They’re all enjoyed with a glass of the region’s famous Albariño wine, which is known for its distinct aroma, with hints of peach and apricot.

-Santiago de Compostela. Galicia’s capital is 30 kilometres north of A Estrada and has volumes of historical importance. This is partly down to being the journey’s end for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, which spans the breadth of Spain, and large swathes of western Europe too. In the UNESCO-designated old-town you can explore a wealth of elegant squares, palaces and churches, visiting the 11th Century cathedral, which combines Romanesque, gothic and baroque styles.

Weather in A Estrada

Galicia is known for its mild and damp climate, with neither soaring highs in summer or regular sub-zero temperatures in winter. When packing for your trip to an apartment in A Estrada it’s worth making space for waterproofs, as the region’s famous greenery is the result of regular precipitation at all times of the year. Highs in summer normally peak just below the mid-20s, and the driest weather occurs in July and August. A winter’s day is normally mild and wet, with lows well above zero and highs of 15 degrees.

Travel to A Estrada

Santiago de Compostela (SCQ) is the airport you can use if you’re flying to your A Estrada apartment from abroad. It’s about 35 kilometres from the town, with a couple of connections to the UK – these are generally to and from London, with low-price companies. Once you get there you can follow the AP-53 autopista for a few kilometres, before joining the local PO-841. In this rural part of Spain a rental car is considered the best way for tourists to get around – even the closest train station to A Estrada is in Santiago de Compostela.

Our hosts were friendly & provided us with lots of fresh fruit & veg which was greatly appreciated. The Casa has 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms which were spacious & comfortable. Downstairs was a small sitting room & a kitchen with an eating area. This was only used when the weather didn't allow us to eat outside in the BBQ area. The kitchen was well equipped & had an oven & 3 ring hob. The only observation I would make is that the fridge was too small for a family of 6. Also the small freezer area at the top didn't allow for much storage. There was a large pool which the kids enjoyed very much. The garden was ideal for relaxing in the sun. The kids also enjoyed playing with the 2 family dogs & going for walks in the countryside in the evenings. Santiago is a beautiful area & the cathedral well worth a visit. Hopefully we will return.
