It also has four double bedrooms,a huge main bathroom, an upstairs shower room and downstairs w-c as well as a mezzanine space and games room with classic bar 'pool' table.
It's situated in the tiny village of Roo in the coastal area of Ria de Muros y Noia. The Ria winds its way inland for 40km, harbouring pristine white sandy beaches occupied only by the locals before and after siestas. The villa is blessed with fantastic countryside views and is a five minute drive to the local beach. It has a huge garden space, which has three levels; a BBQ area, a private 10m x 5m pool and a 'games' area for boules and the like. The night lighting in the garden completes the magical appearance of this wonderful villa.

This Splendid Villa sits in the beautiful mountain forests of Ria de Muros and Noia and yet is only 3kms from the pristine, white sandy beaches of the Ria. The two small towns of Noia and Muros are nearby for evening strolls, meals and fiestas. The historic city of Santiago de Compostela is just a 30minute drive away. Mountain hiking, swimming, horse riding, go-karting, tennis and golfing activities are all within an easy drive from the villa. But its own private pool, BBQ area, private boules area and stunning views interrupted only by the sounds of the river and sightings of eagles may well persuade you to stay at the villa for the duration of your stay!
Other Activities: Go Karting
Year Purchased: 2006
About: Originally from The South East of England - we moved to Galicia in 2005 in search of an affordable renovation project - Maria had family here and at the time there were plenty of opportunities - great old stone houses that had fallen in to disrepair. The original idea was to renovate and sell and return to the UK - but I fell in love with the Ría de Muros y Noia - a spectacular and unique coastal estuary lined with incredible white-sandy beaches and we are still here! We now spend our time renovating properties for other people.
Why Santiago de Compostela Area: Casa Piloto was left unused for 30 years after a house fire - our dog actually found the property - it was completely overgrown but still, despite the neglect, its stonewalls protected its structure. It had wonderful potential and enormous spaces to work with combined with beautiful valley views and easy access to the Ría. It became a real labour of love!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Location, location, location! The Rìa de Muros y Noia remains one of the few undeveloped regions in Spain - its original, authentic and life goes on here as it has for generations. The proximity of Casa Piloto to the beaches and the stunning forest and mountain scenery set it apart and give it a unique serenity, it's a place to breath deeply and enjoy nature at its best, a place to unwind and get back in tune with yourself.
