Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in A Guarda, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

With a history dating back thousands of years, A Guarda is a town of some 10,000 people located in the Galicia region of Spain. The river Mino separates it from Portugal, its neighbour, and tourism is slowly taking a hold here as a main Summer industry. The best places to stay are holiday rental apartments in A Guarda, as they really do feel like a home-away-from-home. Avoid the tourist masses on the eastern Costas, and see for yourself what Galicia has to offer!

Things to Do on Holiday in A Guarda, Spain

The quiet beaches of A Guarda are perhaps the main reason that tourist numbers are increasing, and they offer the opportunity to partake in all manner of activities. Swimming, sunbathing, diving and sailing are all possible here. If you are interested in cycling, and your holiday rental apartment in A Guarda does not have any, then it is possible to rent a bike in order to explore the immediate surrounding countryside. Other activities include horse riding and golf. In fact, you could do something different every day you are on holiday in A Guarda!

Places to Visit on Holiday in A Guarda, Spain

One of the main attractions close by to your holiday rental apartment in A Guarda is the archaeological site known as Castro de Santa Tegra. With a museum and visitor centre, the place is slowly being restored and offers some amazing views from up on the hill. To better explore the Pontevedra Province in general you will need access to a hire car, as then such historic centres as Santiago de Compostela, with its amazing cathedral, can be visited. Spending some time driving the quiet, small country lanes will reveal a side to this area of Spain that you may not have realised existed.

Weather in A Guarda, Spain

This area of Spain has a level of rainfall which compares with the south of England, hence why the region is so green. That said, most of this falls during the late Autumn and Winter months, and does not unduly affect tourists. The summers, however, are warm and long, with average daily highs exceeding 25 degrees Celsius. The Winters can be chillier, with occasional frosts during the colder nights. A holiday in A Guarda is more popular during the summer.

Travel to A Guarda, Spain

The nearest airport to your self catering accommodation in A Guarda is at Vigo (VGO). However, this is quite a minor airport, and the only connection with the UK is with airline Vueling who fly into London Heathrow (LHR). The next closest airport is at Santiago de Compostela (SCQ), where Ryanair operate flights into London Stansted (STN). Whichever airport you decide to use, you will need to hire a car in order to get back to your holiday rental apartment in A Guarda, and also to give yourself greater freedom whilst on vacation there.

The booking process was easy and travel straightforward. We received a warm welcome from Robin and the dogs with an introduction to the area accompanied by a cool glass of local wine. The cottage was perfect - clean and well-equipped. Robin ensured we had all we needed and his local knowledge was invaluable as we set out to explore the area. He arranged bike hire for a week of our stay. The bikes just turned up without us having to do anything. We enjoyed a variety of cycle rides including flat riverside cycle paths and the more challenging climb up Monte Tegra. They were also useful in cycling to the coast. We took advantage of Robin's restaurant recommendations, all the more enjoyable because we could walk to several local ones. Our days took on a lovely pattern - a cycle, walk,coast or town visit, and then back to swim in the pool or wander down to swim from the river beach. In the evening the only decision was do we eat out or do we have a bbq and if so which table should be eat at - the one in the sun or the one in the shade of the vine. This is what constitutes a relaxing and care-free holiday! I would also add that the internet access was good, important for us as we were travelling with teenagers (17 and 14). All credit to Robin in ensuring that this was the perfect base in which to explore unspoilt Galicia.

Teresa was so helpful and very prompt in responding to questions. The house is spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Lovely bedlinen, lovely Molton Brown products in the bathrooms. There are some great restaurants and proper ice cream shops a short drive away in Baiona. We would definitely come back!
