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.

Excellent standard of accommodation and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The pool and the outside areas were lovely. We were fortunate with a week of hot weather, so lots of opportunities to swim and use the barbecue. The restaurant opposite is very nice and so convenient that we only ate elsewhere once. The beach is a 10 mins walk from the house and we thought it one of the nicest beaches along this stretch. The views from the house are fantastic. All in all we had a thoroughly relaxing time and would recommend the villa for a great holiday.

The kitchen is 'old farm' style with an old stone floor which was fine by us. The bathroom was fine providing you are not over 6 ft. Nice tables for outside catering & comfortable lounge. Beds are hard but good. An eclectic mix of books, many from her family's past & most in Spanish. Ines was very friendly & helpful and has decent English. She provided all the appropriate towels, bedding etc. and the place had obviously been cleaned before our arrival. Good value for money. Good walks in the wooded hills behind the property & Ill de Arousa is a lovely beach area especially in the nature reserve in the south of that island (about 30k away). It's tricky to return from without a sat-nav or detailed map - we got lost a number of times. Local waterfalls are terrific (but avoid the owner's white wine in the upper Molina café if you value your dental fillings !). Only real downside was the local farm dogs who made a real racket throughout parts of the evening & night.

Not only did we visit nearby Porto Sin and Porto Son but Bar Mambols was a pleasant surprise and served the most delicious Paella. The house, kitchen, pool and roof top terrace was enjoyed by all, especially watching the sunset. The property was beautifully maintained and the manager Rupert, was extremely informative. We would certainly recommend this property and hopefully someday return.
