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.

amasing trip

4 of 5
There were 7 persons in the Finnish team. Three of us were Disabled and the rest supported and assistenttina us. We took part to camino by wheelchairs and a bike. The camino was amasing. We lived in the villa. It was really perfect for us. We managed quite well and the villa was almost accessible. The location was very good for us as we had our own cars. The property was clean and the garden was wonderful even as early as May. The onnea Mr Gil Fernandes was really helpfull. He even came to take us when we were lost late in the evening. We needed his advices quite many times. Thank you so much! I have already recommended this property. We had kunch on the camino. So we spent evenings in the villa. It was a good place to relax.
