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

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.

The apt was perfect n very roomy, had all d essentials for our stay. Particularly d owners were extremely helpful in every way, and their son helped us a lot as he had a good knowledge of English. We came from Ireland, only problem was very few natives speak English n all Spanish tv channels, but locals were extremely helpful. As we travelled a lot, d apt was ideal being close to Bus n Train stations . Would recommend it highly . John & Mairead, Galway, Ireland.
