Pontevedra Province house description

A large villa on an enclosed, gated, private estate with private access to a secluded beach. The house has a private pool, a large fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, lounge/dining room with terrace overlooking the Atlantic and Cies islands. Both the lounge and the terrace have ten seater dining tables. The terrace has an electrically-operated awning. There is a second lounge, with high quality double bed/sofa, TV & DVD opening to small terrace with bbq and the pool. The rest of the villa consists of 4 double bedrooms (2 with double beds, two with twin beds), 4 bathrooms of which two are en-suite and all of which have shower/toilet, 3 have bidets. There is a laundry with washing machine and a double garage with a full sized table tennis table. The house is equipped throughout with broadband Wi Fi internet access. Furniture and fittings are of high quality and mostly new in 2008. Towels, bed linen and parasols are provided. Our neighbour Fatima will welcome you and be available.


How to get there: The cheapest way to he villa is to fly to Santiago de Compostela (1hr from the house) or Oporto (1.5hrs from the house) with either Ryanair or Easyjet and then hire a car. Alternatively you can fly to the same airports with BA, Iberia or TAP. Best to ignore Vigo airport because you will almost certainly have to change flights at a Spanish airport and the pain is not worth the gain.
Driving is not impossible if you wanted to make a holiday of the journey too, it is around 1250 miles and 20 hours in the saddle from Dover. You could also consider the 24 hour sea crossing to either Bibao or Santander though beware, you would still have a six hour drive from there to Vigo. The link below gets you to an interactive map. On google earth you can see some interesting images of the area.

                              One thing you must do here is eat and drink. Galicia has excellent white wines Albarino and Ribeiro and, all Spaniards agree, the best fish and seafood in Spain. Despite the buoyant local economy ( 8% growth in the past few years) prices remain reasonable. You are within easy reach of Vigo and Baiona with a huge choice of restaurants, there are also two within easy walking distance. The beach is 100m form the villa, fairly inaccessible to the public and has white sand. There is also Playa America beach, Panxon beach, Bao and Samil beach within 8 Km, Samil has many free attractions for children. Santiago de Compostela and its medieval pilgrim route is an hour's drive, Oporto (for port of course) 1.5hrs and Valença, a walled fortress town and its Spanish neighbour Tui on the river Mino, 30m away. The mountains plunge down to the sea in this area so there is plenty of chance to walk or bike and the views are fantastic. If you have never been to this part of Spain you will be pleasantly surprised.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1992

                              About the owner: A standard family. parents 2 daughters. We lived in Vigo between 1991 and 2000 in Casa Tico (named after our dog in fact)

                              Why the Owner Chose Pontevedra Province:
                              We bought it as our family home when we worked in Vigo because it was right next to the sea and the beach with amazing views and because it is also a big, comfortable house which absorbs any number of kid's friends etc. I suppose the weirdest thing about this is the fact that we went on holiday to Vigo in 1989 before there was ever an inkling that we might end up working there. We stayed at a B & B right next to Saianes Beach (which is our local beach), looked at Casa Tico and said to ourselves how nice it would be to live there. It was a matter solely of chance and coincidence we ended up living in it 3 years later. When we left in 2000, logically we should have sold it of course but none of us could bear to so we ended up becoming 'first time buyers' again with all that implies: big mortgage, small house and so on. Worth it though!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The sunset over the Cies Islands looking west to the Atlantic ocean and the uncanny feeling of peace that engulfs you when you step out onto the seaward facing terrace.
