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!
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July, and enjoyed it very much. The house is roomy, cool in summer and well appointed. There is a large garden and outside dining area, which we used all the time. It has a large swimmimg pool with plenty of sun loungers, and a table tennis table for the more energetic. There is also a good BBQ. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The house is conveniently sited for trips to the local towns, cities and beaches, as well as for trips into Portugal. The only down side for some will be that the approach road is very narrow and takes nerves of steel to use - or a small car. Not really a problem though as cars can be safely left in the road below.
