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 had a wonderful weeks stay in this beautiful property with our six children. From the moment we arrived, the friendly housekeepers welcomed us (despite our hopeless Spanish!) and when one of our boys was injured on a Saints day, one of them even drove out to the villa to help phone a hospital for us. The owners were also very attentive.
The house is really well-equipped and spotless. There is also a helpful, detailed folder with information about the local area, restaurants, walks, beaches & places to visit. There is a great games room with table tennis and pool to keep the kids occupied and outside the heated pool is fantastic. The views over the mountains are stunning and we really enjoyed our evenings watching the sunset and the stars appear.
We would love to return for the property, and also for the area as there is so much to explore within an hour's drive.
