                                                                                We bought a road atlas to navigate from the airport. We had deliberately left our guidebooks at home. This part of the world is thankfully not in the guidebooks. We were met by Karen, the friendly and helpful housekeeper in one of the bars in Vila de Cruces. She escorted us to The Mill and showed us what was what. It is an elegant, spacious, comfortable and well equipped house in a glorious secluded location with a river to jump into from the garden, and some exquisite wild swimming in warm waters a short walk downstream. We lounged under the vine-covered logia, watched the comical green lizards, cooked on the BBQ and made full use of the excellent kitchen. Every meal was eaten outside. The children (14,12,9) decided to sleep in the separate annexe. Sometimes, when not in the river, they persuaded us to get up and play badminton on the lawn. An occasional fisherman wondered by, but otherwise the only sound was that of the crickets and cicadas. We made some low-key exploratory forays to Santiago, Lugo, and Pontevedra. All well worth a visit for the purposes of random wondering and really good cheap food. We did not see a single British tourist outside Santiago in 2 weeks. Lovely countryside and good, almost empty roads. Time slowed down. Food tasted better. The children woke up late. It was great. We found that the small town of Vila de Cruces, a 10 minute drive up the track, seems to operate under the the same special time dilation that affected us at The Mill. Cars drive slowly. There is no hurry in any of the shops or the post office. Everyone appears completely content with this fact. Excellent butchers, bread, fish etc, who speak no English or Welsh, but who can understand you anyway. There are some friendly bars with wifi and cold beer. Once a fortnight there is a market where a lot of people gather to eat boiled octopus. If you want a luxury executive holiday with a super highspeed multimedia office away from home, activities organised from dawn to dusk with a creche for the nippers, a tiki bar and a really bangin' club scene, then this place is really not for you. We stayed for 2 weeks and we left reluctantly.

                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                We spent ahugely enjoyable and relaxing 2.5 weeks here in July/August 2013 as part of a 7 month tour of Spain. This was the largest and best equipped particularly the kitchen!) of all of the places we stayed (20+). The apartment is owned by a local family and Begona, who manages the place, could not have been more welcoming or helpful even going so far as to have a present waiting for our baby daughter in her cot when we arrived. Again of all the places we rented none of the owners were friendlier or kinder than Begona. The apartment is in a tiny hamlet amid rolling hills and farmland about 5km north of Monterroso, and is as peaceful a place as you will find. The neighbours were all incredibly welcoming to us as well even and made us feel right at home. Monterroso itself has a couple of supermarkets, plenty of bars/cafés with a weekly market and other shops you could need. In addition, from July - September there is a beautiful swimming pool/river swimming complex that is completely free, with a bar/restaurant and plenty of shade. Days could easily be passed there! The apartment is the lower floor of a traditional farmhouse, complete with metre thick walls that keep the place cool in summer. The apartment is very well located for visiting inland Galicia, just over 30 minutes from Lugo with its stunning city walls, and an hour from Santiago and Ourense. This is rural holidaying at its best and most relaxing, run by locals, and far from the crowds that descend on coastal Galicia in the summer. If you are interested in exploring inland Galicia or just want a break away from it all Begona's apartment comes highly recommended.
