About the property

Two person rustic cottage in rural location, 30mins from Pontevedra and beaches

´A Casiña do Limoeiro´(The Little House of the Lemon Tree) is situated in the delightful countryside of Cotobade, less than 30 minutes drive from the historic town of Pontevedra and a little further to some of the stunning beaches of the Rias Baixas. In this quiet corner of Cotobade, you are more likely to find cows and sheep roaming the roads as the locals take their livestock to the fields to graze daily – come rain or shine. Haymaking in June and planting potatoes in February are still the mainstays of the local calendar.

This separate cottage forms the oldest part of a large farmhouse. It is over 300 years old and once had the original living quarters on the upper floor with the animals kept below for heating. Nowadays, it has a woodburning stove instead and the cottage has been fully renovated to a modern standard whilst still retaining all of its rustic charm.

The thick stone walls were constructed and restored using the granite from the nearby mountains. The bedroom features a traditional granite Galician windowseat originally made for two (very small) people to chat in. The roof retains all of its original structural beams and the other wooden elements of the house (staircase, flooring etc) were reclaimed from the larger farmhouse.

The cottage is perfect for a single person or a couple. It is next to, but not attached to, the owner´s farmhouse and has its own individual private entrance and gravelled patio which is walled on three sides and has a low fence, 70cm high to the front. This leads onto a small garden complete with mature lemon tree. The stone wall to the front is 40cm high. Views are to open countryside and hills beyond, framed by orchard trees.

The interior is open plan with the bedroom on a wooden mezzanine level above a galley kitchen and bathroom, linked together by a lounge/dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas hob, combi microwave/oven/grill, fridge with freezer compartment, sink and instant gas hot water heater. The bedroom area has a queen size (135x190cm) double bed and wardrobe, and the lounge area has a sofa, dining table, wood burning stove, television (21inches) and stereo.

The casita is a small but perfectly formed 25m2 and has been perfectly adapted for up to two people especially as the owners (and dog) lived there for three years whilst restoring the larger farmhouse.

WIFI is available but with a limit of 5GB per week.

Please note: due to the short open staircase it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.

fantastisch huisje in de bergen van Cotobade

  • 5 of 5

Het huisje van Marc en Ellen is de ideale plek voor een romantische vakantie midden in het groen. Je zit daar midden tussen de weilanden van een klein gehucht. Vanuit het huisje kun je wandelingen langs eeuwen oude wegen door het heuvelachtige landschap maken. Het huisje is veel ruimer dan het op de fotos lijkt en super handig en smaakvol ingericht vol prachtiger historischer details. Je hebt een terras een een tuin met schaduw en bloemen en schapen en koeien kijken over de muur. ln de buurt zijn meerdere rivieren waar je prachtig in kunt zwemmen en het charmante stadje Pontevedra is niet ver. De mensen in de dorpjes zij ontzettend vriendelijk en behulpzaam net als Marc en Ellen. In het keukentje vind je alles wat je nodig hebt (zelfs vlijmscherpe messen!) en er zijn extra badlakens voor wie graag gaat zwemmen. In Pontevedre is er iedere dag verse vis te koop op de markt, maar je kunt daar ook goed eten in talloze restaurantjes. We hebben een geweldige week gehad met af en toe een buitje terwijl de rest van Europa sniekte naar een druppeltje regen. Puur genieten!

Authentisches, gemütliches Steinhaus mit allem modernen Komfort

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus verbindet eine authentische Behaglichkeit mit praktischem Komfort. Die Außenterrasse und der Garten bieten die Möglichkeit, draußen zu sitzen. Die Gallicische Umgebung ist wunderschön, deine unmittelbaren Nachbarn sind Kühe und Schafe hier, jeden Morgen bist du von Vögeln und Ziegen erzogen. Auf 40 Meter zu Fuß gibt es einen Brunnen, auch das Wasser der schönen heißen Dusche in deinem Häuschen ist Quellwasser. Die pastorale Berglandschaft mit ihren vielen kleinen Flüssen, Wäldern, Wegen und wunderschönen Landschaften bietet Wandern, Fotografieren oder einfach nur zu genießen. Auf 2,4 Kilometern finden Sie ein (frei zugängliches) Schwimmbad mit Flusswasser, mitten in der Natur. Und doch ist es nur eine halbe Stunde Fahrt nach Pontevedra mit seinem Handelszentrum und Strände. Und vergiss den Wein in dieser Region nicht!

la casa perfecta para tomarse unas vacaciones en el campo. Rodeado de paz y tranquilidad

  • 5 of 5

Desde que empezamos a comunicarnos con Emma fueron todo facilidades. Tanto Emma como su marido fueron encantadores y atentos en todo momento.

La casa estaba impecable cuando llegamos. Es muy acogedora, con un jardín precioso y en un lugar inmejorable, lejos de todo ruido.

Estamos muy contentos con la experiencia y con seguridad repetiremos. Una estancia de 10.

Très beau séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé quinze jours très agréables..

Emma Et Mark sont très gentils et attentionnés.

La maison est très confortable avec une décoration chaleureuse. On s'y sent bien.

Il ne manque rien.

Pour les amoureux de la nature, sa situation entre mer et montagne permet de découvrir des paysages différents.

La Galice est une magnifique région avec beaucoup de sites à visiter.

Nous remercions encore Emma Et Mark qui nous ont bien accueilli ( avec notre espagnol imparfait!). Mais cela a permis d'en rire!

Nous sommes donc des Français heureux d'avoir découvert cette belle région d'Espagne et d'avoir fait de belles rencontres...

Maison conseillée aux personnes qui recherchent le calme, la tranquillité

Car: necessary

Despite only being 25 minutes inland from Pontevedra, this corner of Cotobade known as Corredoira is very rural and perfect for quiet relaxation and country walks straight from the door. A 5 minute drive takes you into the mountains visible from the patio area, known as the Serra do Cando. From here there are magnificent views to the Atlantic coast and it is possible to see three of the estuaries of the Rias Baixas. From the city of Vigo and its suspension bridge to the south, historic Pontevedra and its islands and then up to the Ria de Arousa to the north and out over the Atlantic - particularly recommended at sunset. There are also a number of walks in the Sierra where you will encounter streams, waterfalls, and wild horses and cattle roaming amongst the windfarm windmills.

The local town of Cerdedo is 7km (10 mins drive) and here you can find a supermarket, banks, post office, pharmacy, newsagent, bar, restaurants and a natural swimming pool. The pretty local village of Carballedo is also 7km away with bars, restaurants, small supermarket, pharmacy, bank and another natural swimming pool.

The magnificent city of Santiago de Compostela can be reached in just under an hour.

The nearest beaches of the Rias Baixas are around 35 minutes away.


The airport of Santiago de Compostela is just over an hour by car. There are flights from Gatwick with either Easyjet or Vueling and from Stanstead with Ryanair.

Vigo airport is 45 minutes drive and has flights from Dublin (Ryanair) and London Luton (Air Nostrum).

La Coruña airport is two hours drive and has flights from Heathrow with Vueling.

Please note: These routes are correct at time of writing, but can be seasonal and are subject to airline change.
