Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Porto do Son - Casa Minerva: The Beach House

A stunning renovation; mixing vintage beach themes with a modern lifestyle.

If you're a beach lover, a nature lover and a lover of design then this house has been renovated with you in mind. This old bar with apartments has been converted into a 5 star luxury villa with private swimming pool and sleeps 8-10 people.

A 20 meter stroll from the house delivers you to the most fantastic beach along the stunning Ria de Muros y Noia coastline: Playa de Aguieira - a crescent shaped, golden-sanded beach alined with dunes and wonderful views of the Rìa. It really is an amazing beach, popular in the summer but never over-populated - many guests comment on it being the best they have ever seen.

The renovation welcomes you to an enormous open-planned living/dining/kitchen area with views to the mountains at the back and views to the coast at the front. Classic styles mixed with vintage feels - ensure that despite its size the house remains cozy and relaxed- this 'chilled' holiday ambience is magnified at every turn and space; culminating in an amazing flat-roofed sofa area for sunset contemplation, star gazing and a little beverage or two!

About Maria Moreno Lamas

We've been renovating and renting properties along the Rìa de Muros y Noia for some years now. Back home (London UK) we found the opportunities to renovate and design on budget hard to come by and then we found the Rìa de Muros y Noia - a sublimely pretty part of the world and our little business was born.

Maria Moreno Lamas purchased this house in 2014

Why Maria Moreno Lamas chose Ria de Muros y Noia

We've long cherished our time on the beaches along the Rìa de Muros y Noia and to have a property along the Playa de Aguieira has been a dream since our first days in Galicia.

Lady luck dealt us this opportunity and we grasped it with all our available energy and with the ambition to create the perfect beach house retreat for families and those precious holiday times.

Whether swimming in the pool, basking on the nearby beach or just enjoying the well appointed interior of the house, our family of ten had seven memorable days at the lovely Casa Minerva. 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.

The Beach House of all Beach Houses

  • 5 of 5

First of all, let's get the negative out of the way - the beach is busy in summer afternoons, as in clog up the road to the house busy with the weekends being the worst. 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.

A little slice of heaven.....

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found somewhere special. Both the house itself and the scenery just took our breath away.

With the most beautiful beach barely 50 yards away from the front door, a gorgeous swimming pool in the gardens and a house you'll never want to leave, this place really has it all. The house itself has been decorated beautifully with simply exquisite little touches in every room. The bedrooms are spacious and filled with interesting bits and pieces that you will want to take away with you. Downstairs is a massive open living area with a stunning kitchen (with literally everything you will need) and a lounge big enough for a large party (the iPod docking station was a welcome find too). The pool table was also well used when we were there.

Just open the doors at the rear of the house and you really are in heaven with a huge dining table, and plenty of space to just chill out by the pool.

At the top of the house is a fantastic roof terrace with views over the hills and beach. We even got up early one morning to watch the sun-rise.

Words don't really do this place justice. It is, quite frankly, a little slice of heaven.

Tears when we had to leave but we hope to back again.

Thanks also to hosts Rupert and Maria who greeted us like old friends and made us feel at home straight away.
