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 house is very modern, attractive, clean and well-equipped. It is more spacious and even nicer than the photos suggest. Very peaceful and with a great view of the Atlantic Ocean and across to Finisterre (when the sea mist/clouds are not down!) Lovely backdrop of the mountains. Quite a selection of beaches within easy driving distance, with golden sand and good views. There are a number of things to do in the area - the Ezaro waterfall is a short drive away and you can drive on from there up into the mountains. Muros is a lovely old little town right on the coast. Santiago is just over an hour away and is really lovely. Finisterre is just round the coast and is interesting to see. The old town of Pontevedra is about 90 mins away and is great to wander round. A Coruna is a similar distance away and has a good aquarium if the weather is not so great! The area is generally very relaxing and the seafood plentiful and really delicious. We had a lovely time and would definitely return. Many thanks to Beatriz for letting us stay in her lovely house!
