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

Carnota is a small Spanish town and municipality, located within the Galicia region, to the far north-west of the country. This is a relatively undiscovered part of Spain, especially when compared to the busier, brasher Costas resorts lining the country’s Mediterranean. Nevertheless, this region still offers a great choice of self catering accommodation for its more select influx of tourists, including spacious apartments, villas and traditional Spanish cottages, or ‘casas’.

The apartment was cool even without air conditioning in temps from 26 - 34 C. The owners were very responsive. We didn't use the car much because the beach is only 6 mins walk away. We enjoyed eating out but also eating in ..purchasing prawns and mussels from the shops in the marina. A great holiday. We will return and would recommend it to friends. Not many downsides: parking is a little difficult in Muros, generally, due to the very narrow roads. Ian Combe

It's still as perfect as last year, very comfortable, beautifully situated and incredibly clean. The surrounding area kept us occupied too, and we managed to do completely different activities to last year: we climbed Monte Pindo to sample the wonderful views of the bay stretching towards Finisterre; we drove to Vigo and Pontevedra; we cycled up to As Paxareiras and to Punta de Lariño to enjoy the vistas; we bought and ate peppers from Padrón; and we jumped in the sea at Ézaro to cool down during the weekend heatwave. It was always a pleasure to come back to the house and relax each evening and prepare for new adventures the next day. Our only regret was that our stay did not last long enough, so we would like to come back again, perhaps at a different time of year, to sample more of the region's delights. It was lovely to see the owners at the start of our holiday and they were as helpful and charming as ever. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Moitas grazas!
