A picturesque scene of cobbled patios, mature foliage and stone walls strewn with the bright blooms of trailing bougainvillea welcomed us as we walked through the gates of this delightful retreat. As we then made our way up the steps leading to the house we found ourselves looking out onto an extensive haven of terraced lawns, foliage-covered arbours and abundant fruit trees. In the background, the restful sound of flowing water completed the idyllic picture.
Tucked discretely into the natural landscape of the village of Fornelos, just 2km from the historic centre of O Rosal in the heart of the Albariño wine growing region, this charming stone cottage and its wonderfully spacious grounds offer a relaxing idyll amidst the scenic countryside of Galicia’s most southerly province.
Fed by a mountain stream, water is channelled along the side of the property into two natural pools*, which shimmer enticingly amongst grassland, trees and shaded nooks. Down below on a lower level the standard swimming pool sits amidst a lawn in front of the house.
Inside, the beautifully furnished interior instantly welcomes with its country cottage charm, homely ambience and characterful features. Beneath a wood beamed ceiling and exposed stone walls, the open plan living area looks southwards through a wide picture window towards the fields and woodland that roll picturesquely towards the River Miño and Galicia’s border with Portugal.
Being within such easy reach of Spain’s neighbour and the stunning beaches of the Costa Verde makes this an ideal base for visiting two countries in one holiday. Guests could however be forgiven for simply wishing to stay put and relax in the property’s inviting surroundings or wander along the country lane to the nearby restaurant (700m), which is situated near the historic mills of Folón and Picón.
