We stayed here for a week in early September. Emails in advance were answered promptly and the day of arrival, the owner and her son arrived on time to let us in. The owners son was there to translate for us in English and he was very knowledgeable and helpful in regards to the area. The apartment was the cleanest I've stayed in and had everything you could want, and the bed in the main bedroom had the most comfortable mattress ever (I was tempted to ask where it's from). The lounge has nice big windows on the sunny side so that was nice to sit in of an evening. It's well located down the road from the Train Station which is also right near the bus station and enabled us to take many trips out of the immediate area. Pontevedra itself is also full of shops and supermarkets, cafes and restaurants and the locals are friendly. One of my favourite stays.
O Cafexo is a lovely property in very large grounds in a nice part of Galicia, within an easy drive of some fabulous beaches and interesting towns to visit. First impressions were that it was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and obviously well loved (in a good way). The house had everything we needed for our five day stay, and Mathilde who met us there was extremely lovely and helpful. The stone house is part of a larger estate. There are lots of fruit trees, specimen plants, small ponds with cascading water, beautiful old carved stonework and probably the thing that sets it apart from the other properties in the area is that it has a river frontage with its own small private harbour with rowing boats and a kayak. The river is lovely to swim in being clear and slow moving, half salt, half fresh water. I would imagine this would be a wonderful place to visit for families. Don't go expecting manicured gardens, this place is very much about getting back to nature and about enjoying being in the countryside. We really enjoyed the house, the river. Mathilde's kindness and most of all the three lovely dogs!
