Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in A Illa de Arousa, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

Situated in the middle of the Arousa estuary, A Illa de Arousa is the only island municipality within the Galicia region of Spain, and is connected by a 2km long bridge with the mainland. It has a rich history, stretching back hundreds, if not thousands of years, and the sea, and making a living from it, are still important to this day. A holiday rental apartment in A Illa de Arousa offers the best way to experience this island, giving you a comfortable, homely base from which to relax and enjoy yourself.

Things to Do on Holiday in A Illa de Arousa, Spain

There are many things to do whilst on holiday in A Illa de Arousa, and a large majority of these, as you can imagine, revolve around the sea. Almost anything is possible here, such as water skiing, Scuba diving, windsurfing, snorkelling, kayaking and swimming. A hike around the island is easily possible, although cyclists may find things a little limited. A trip over to the mainland will cure any golf cravings that you may have, and other activities such as tennis and bowling are possible there.

Places to Visit on Holiday in A Illa de Arousa, Spain

The island with its areas of natural beauty will be the first place to be explored, but you may wish to visit the mainland whilst on holiday in A Illa de Arousa to see yet more sights. This area of Spain is much less developed than the more well-known Costas on the east and south coasts, and time spent simply driving through the countryside will reveal quaint untouched villages and beautiful beaches. There are also some interesting archaeological sites in the region, one of which is the Castro Santa Tegra near A Guarda.

Weather in A Illa de Arousa, Spain

The weather is always going to play an important part in any travel plans, and so you will be pleased to know that you can enjoy some fantastic weather during your holiday in A Illa de Arousa. The summer months are the most popular time of year to take self catering accommodation in A Illa de Arousa and with good reason – expect clear skies and temperatures in the high 20’s degrees Celsius. Even at night, it rarely dips below 20 degrees during this time. Rainfall is also minimal during this period, with no more than 40mm falling per month between June and August.

Travel to A Illa de Arousa, Spain

The closest airport to your holiday rental apartment in A Illa de Arousa is at Santiago de Compostela (SCQ), less than 40km away. This is a minor regional airport, and so no national flag carriers fly into here. Budget airline Ryanair do offer routes, though, and connect with the UK at London Stansted (STN). You could take a taxi from the airport to the island itself, but a rental car will give you more flexibility whilst on holiday in A Illa de Arousa.

House was well equipped and very comfortable. Bedrooms were a good size, bathrooms clean with powerful showers. View from the roof top terrace was beautiful and especially good for star gazing. We enjoyed many meals under the kiwi vine and felt we had a lot of privacy that allowed us to switch off and enjoy our holiday. Alicia and Fena made us very welcome and helped us settle in upon our arrival and were always available to provide extra information if needed. Thoroughly enjoyed Galicia and would love to stay again.

The kitchen is 'old farm' style with an old stone floor which was fine by us. The bathroom was fine providing you are not over 6 ft. Nice tables for outside catering & comfortable lounge. Beds are hard but good. An eclectic mix of books, many from her family's past & most in Spanish. Ines was very friendly & helpful and has decent English. She provided all the appropriate towels, bedding etc. and the place had obviously been cleaned before our arrival. Good value for money. Good walks in the wooded hills behind the property & Ill de Arousa is a lovely beach area especially in the nature reserve in the south of that island (about 30k away). It's tricky to return from without a sat-nav or detailed map - we got lost a number of times. Local waterfalls are terrific (but avoid the owner's white wine in the upper Molina café if you value your dental fillings !). Only real downside was the local farm dogs who made a real racket throughout parts of the evening & night.

Quiero desir que nosotros pasamos buen rato. Maria y Juan es una pareja que siempre esta dispuesta a ayudar y siempre esta de buen humor. El lugar donde esta la casa es tranquilo y los vesinos son agradables. La casa es muy comoda y luminosa , ademas hay un gardin maravilloso. La casa esta muy cerca del mar y O Grove. Nos sentimos como en familia. Quieremos recomendar la casa de todos nuestros amigos y tenemos muchas ganas volver de nuevo.
