Make a holiday apartment in Foz your home away from home

Foz apartments are set in Galicia's Lugo province, at a spot that blends unforgettable sandy coastline with idyllic inland scenery. You'll be well off the beaten track at a Foz holiday home, and will have the space and privacy to stretch out and explore a beautiful corner of Spain in your own time on walks or bike rides. Many apartments in Foz have gorgeous views of either the Atlantic Ocean or the mountains, and in Foz you'll be just a short way from the beach and a local golf course. This part of Galicia features abundant ancient history, with the remnants of a Roman fort, as well as the UNESCO-listed Roman city of Lugo, all close by.

Things to do

-Beaches. Foz has 25 kilometres of coastline, home to many beaches with fine white sand and unspoiled, pastoral backdrops. What's incredible about this location is that seven of these beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag, which gives you an idea of their quality. Rapaidora is the best option for all the classic beachfront activities and services. The ocean here is protected by rocks making it calm and perfect for kids.

-Outdoor activities. If you'd like to discover the beautiful local scenery on foot then there are four different routes departing from this town. The most challenging, and strictly for outward bound souls is Routa Frouxeria, which takes five hours, covers rugged green hills and is flanked by chapels, historic forts and farms. Ruta das Prias is a flatter coastal walk that takes you past all of the stunning local beaches.

-Heritage. There are ancient and medieval remnants to explore close by. Castro Fazouro is particularly exciting - it's a Roman coastal fort, dating to the 2nd Century and covering six hectares. In the parish of San Martino you can also visit the basilica, which is the oldest example of Galician Romanesque architecture, dating to the 9th Century.

-Food and drink. Fish and seafood are superb in northern parts of Spain. Sardines are very popular in the Lugo province, where they are served in a variety of ways - roasted, stewed or grilled with paprika. Mussels, crayfish, octopus, lobster, turbot, trout from the Minho river and hake will appear on many local menus.

-Lugo. Lugo has the impressive distinction of being the only city in the world still surrounded by its original Roman walls, which makes it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walls date to the 200s, and there's also a Roman-era bridge crossing the River Minho here. The walls feature 71 towers, and you can walk the entire perimeter of the old town along the battlements.

Weather in Foz

If you come to a holiday rental in Foz in mid-summer then you're likely to experience pleasantly warm temperatures, with highs that are a little lower than many other parts of Spain. This is down to the region's maritime climate, caused by the Atlantic, which results in mild and relatively damp conditions all year round. In July and August temperatures push the mid-20s, while autumn and spring conditions are very mild, getting highs in the upper teens. Winters are also very moderate, with frosts and snow very rare, and temperatures in the mid-teens.

Travel to Foz

Given Foz' distance from airports, it's a good idea to have a car to visit this area. Still, the town is on the Ferrol-Oviedo railway, with services from Oviedo to cities across Spain. The nearest international airport is Asturias (OVD), just over an hour to the east. There are a few airlines offering flights to this airport from Britain. A Coruna (LCG) is the next closest, at over 90 minutes southwest of this area. From this airport you can get to your holiday home in Foz via the A-6 and A-8 toll roads.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The apartment is on the 2nd floor but is served by an elevator. It is spacious and airy and made homely with small pictures and ornaments around. The caretaker, Laly, and her mother were both extremely helpful despite their speaking no English and we speaking no Spanish. Figueras is a very small fishing village on the border of Asturias and Galicia with no real conveniences (shop, restaurants, etc.) and thus very quiet. There are a couple of bars on the little harbourside which do get very busy in the evening. It is an excellent place to stay as a centre for a touring holiday (from A Coruna to Oviedo and beyond) in Asturias and Galicia.
