Make a holiday rental villa or property in Galicia, Spain your home away from home

Taking a holiday property in Galicia, Europe’s westernmost region, is a unique experience in Spain as the landscape is totally different to any other region, looking more like parts of Ireland than Spain, and cut off from the rest of the country by the towering peaks of its mountain ranges. It is a beautifully wild region of countryside, with wooded valleys and lush meadows standing on top of sharp cliffs and beautiful, sandy beaches. Taking a Galicia villa is ideal for those who want to enjoy Spain at its simplest, most beautiful and authentic, away from tourist crowds, over-development and the staggering heat of Andalucia or Murcia.

Things to do on holiday in Galicia, Spain

Throughout the Galicia region are a whole host of beautiful historic towns and villages which are well worth exploring from any Galicia property, from a Galicia cottage deep in the wild countryside to a villa in Galicia’s main town. The Galicia tourist board has information on the historical importance, cultural interest and tourist attractions of Noia, Muris, Porto do Son, Tui and Ribeira, to name just some of the best.

Many of Galicia’s beaches are almost deserted for much of the year. Even during the heat of the summer, the beaches remain empty and at your disposal if you would like a lazy day on the beach during your stay in a Galicia cottage or villa.

The region is known throughout Spain as the ‘land of 1,000 rivers’, and is a famous region in the fishing world. Galicia carp fishing holidays thrive, and there is nowhere better to be based to explore the many miles of rivers than from a private, self catering Galicia cottage, deep in the famous countryside. The Galicia tourist board will have plenty of information on the best places and licensing requirements for a world class holiday fishing in Galicia.

Galicia properties are the favoured accommodation for hikers as walking in Galicia’s countryside is an unparalleled experience. The countryside is adorned with beautiful fishing villages, romantic viewpoints and historical monuments like the Bridge of Ourense, Tower of Hercules, Tomb of the Apostle Santiago, Santiago de Compostela Cathedral and many Celtic remains. The rich history and strong culture has resulted in Galicia retaining much of its folklore, music and gastronomy, which makes taking a Galicia property a real treat.

Places to visit on holiday in Galicia, Spain

The capital of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela, is the final destination for many people taking pilgrimages to the monumental Cathedral. Many of those who fly into Galicia will arrive into Santiago de Compstela, and it is well worth investigating before leaving the town for your holiday accommodation.

Weather in Galicia, Spain

The weather in Galicia is far more temperate and mild than the climate found in Spain’s more southerly regions. In fact, many holiday makers take a Galicia property in order to avoid the stifling heat associated with the more famous Spanish costas. In summer, temperatures hover around the 25°C mark, whilst in winter, temperatures average around 5°C.

There. Now, get up at 9:00 am and take a stroll along one of the most beautiful crescent beaches you can imagine, 100 steps from your place, completely by yourself. Aaaah. The house is spectacular and finished beautifully with a pool in the backyard to die for, There's even a rooftop terrace. The area around, particularly Muros, the Louros beach and the Celtic ruins just up the road are well worth the visits. And the owner met us at check in and walked us through. Wonderful.

                                                                                              4 of 5

It was in an apartment building in the city of Milladoira, 4th floor. Easy to travel by bus to Santiago and easy for pub, shops and restaurant around the corner. It was difficult to find as we had not been given instructions how to get to the reception and the apartment. Garbage is seperated, but there were no instructions in English for this. Neither instructions in English for the tv. The double beds are good, but small for long persons. But a nice and fully equipped apartment.

                                                                                              5 of 5
                                                                                              The first impression is not welcoming, there are bare walls and not a hanging picture or anything at all. BUT it grows on you. There is a hint of mustiness in the air at first, but no damp. When the maritime air here gets locked in by the brand new double glazed windows, what else do you expect. Within a few hours with the windows open, all the mustiness had gone. Everything is brand new, except the internal doors, which are wooden with an art deco design. I certainly wouldn't want to ruin them screwing in hooks, a couple of coat stands would help with this. We were out most of the day, and I'm still amazed by how cheap the car parking is in Vigo, why walk or use public transport? The balcony is lovely, the outside seating is too. I mentioned the lack of kettle to the owner Isabel (very friendly and helpful), and she returned with a new one in about an hour. The location near to the motorway is excellent for exploring the district. The only thing it lacks, in my wife's opinion, is a full length mirror. We had a great stay in a great flat.
