The house was clean and well maintained and we enjoyed the peaceful gardens (our son particularly enjoyed his job as lemon picker for the G&Ts) as described in the listing. My 72 year old father in law found the narrow and steep stairs between the floors tricky but was happy with the bedroom on the lower ground floor with the adjacent bathroom. The highlights for us were sea kayaking at Raxo and exploring the old town at Combarro sampling all the fabulous seafood and albarino wine.

Everything you could think of is provided - even those things you suddenly remember that you forgot to pack - like earbuds and cotton wool pads. All the rooms were spotless and all the bedding was of good quality cotton and matched each room. We went out each night for dinner but the large kitchen had everything you could want. The large pool was used every afternoon as we had gloriously hot weather and it comes complete with pool toys which is fab and saves on packing. The house is on a main road...well as main as they get! but we heard very little traffic noise. The locals are incredibly friendly even though we didn't speak much Spanish. Be warned go with a good lingo book as very few of the locals speak English and a bit of effort on your part earns you broad chuckles and usually some yummy nibbles to have with your drinks. Use the information that Erica & Phil have left as it's very good. We can certainly recommend Bar Furnas and Arnela Restaurant which we visited based on their recommendations and can certainly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of Galicia.
