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. With HomeAway you can browse a choice of holiday rentals in A Estrada to see which one has the location, style and facilities that you desire. 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.

Barbara was very responsive to all our emails, and met us at the apartment to show us around. The apartment is very well located to the bus and train station, with several supermarkets and bakeries close by. The balcony was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning. When we come back to Santiago in the future we will definitely see whether this apartment is free. Thanks Barbara for a lovely stay.

We met the owner in a nearby town and he escorted us to the villa. We were delighted with our first impressions but very quickly realised that my wheelchair could not get into either of the bathrooms. This was a major problem as it appeared that I would be unable to use a toilet or shower for two weeks - impossible! After further investigations my husband found that if he took off the door of the more possible bathroom and I removed the armrests and footrests from my chair I could just squeeze in. There were further problems getting into the shower which I won't go into, suffice it to say that this part of my holiday was made extremely difficult. Also my wheelchair caused unavoidable damage to the bathroom door frame, which made me feel guilty. Many wheelchair users are able to walk for short distances which would enable the to use the bathrooms in this villa but for those like me who can neither walk nor stand it is imperative that this is made clear in the description exactly what level of accessibility the property has. Apart from the above we had a wonderful holiday. The weather was perfect, the scenery spectacular from coast to mountains, the people friendly, the towns and villages varied and interesting and the many cultural and historic sites fascinating.

The apartment had everything you would need and contact with Beatriz was fantastic. The apartment is about a 10min walk to the cathedral and in a very quiet neighbourhood. Beatriz organised for us to have our bags for collection following our walk. We also were able to enter the apartment earlier than organised which was fabulous. Close to lots of facilities. I would absolutely recommend. Thanks😀
