About the Property

Where luxury & affordability combine to provide the perfect holiday retreat.

After meandering through leafy lanes into the sleepy village of Vilatan, you’ll discover the recently restored farmhouse of Campo Verde. In the charming interior of the house, open stone walls and solid wooden beams combine to create a traditional feel. With its tiled floors, stylish soft furnishings and homely finishing touches, this is a home that exudes comfort and quality. Outside, there are manicured lawns and nestled in one corner of the garden is a steel framed gazebo which provides welcome shade - the perfect place to enjoy the rural views over afternoon tea. At one end of the property an enclosed, stone-floored patio is an ideal spot for dining alfresco. The accommodation comprises; Master double bedroom with en-suite shower-room, twin bedded room, a second shower-room, spacious lounge, dining room and fully equipped kitchen with all mod-cons.

A RICH HISTORY: In the nearby village of Escairon you will find most local amenities; supermarkets, banks, restaurants, bars, post office, tourist information office. The village also boasts a municipal open-air swimming pool (open during the summer). The river beach at A Cova on the river Mino is a short car drive away. The area, Ribeira Sacrá, boasts many local fiestas. The nearby town of Monforte de Lemos offers a wider choice of services. Despite its appearance and size, Monforte is in fact a city. It’s most prominent features are the monastery of San Vicente do Pino and the Torre de Homenaxe, both perched high on a hill in the centre of the town dominating the surrounding area. Another building of historic interest is the convent of the Franciscanas Descalzas. Within the convent is the Nais Clarisas museum which contains some of the highest quality religious artifacts in the whole of Spain.

THINGS TO DO: Campo Verde is an excellent base from which to discover the charm of the Ribeira Sacrá. The area boasts one of the greatest concentrations of Romanesque Art in Spain. Take a leisurely cruise in one of the catamarans on the river Sil or Mino. On the other hand you could just lay back and enjoy the sun on a river beach, like that at A Cova.

In addition to exploring the area by car we would also recommend that you take time out to do some walking and bird watching or enjoy a round of golf. If relaxation is your aim why not visit a thermal spa and let the hot sulphurous waters soothe away your aches and pains or simply relax in the warm Galician sunshine reading a book as time gently slips by. Whatever you choose to do Campo Verde is the perfect holiday retreat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Craig and his wife Melanie moved to Galicia in May 2002. Originally from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, they sold a small printing business to pursue their dream of living abroad. Since their move to Spain, Craig has turned his hand to writing, firstly penning a weekly column for an online magazine and most recently writing and publishing his first bookabout their adventures in Spain called ‘Journey To A Dream’. Craig's second book in the series 'Beyond Imagination' was published in the summer of 2015. His third book 'Endless Possibilities' was released in September 2016. As well as writing, both Craig and Melanie are keen winemakers and annually produce about 500 litres from their small vineyard.

Why the Owner Chose O Saviñao, Lugo, Spain:
Campo Verde is situated in the heart of the Galician countryside in the village of Vilatan. It’s an ideal location from which to explore Galicia and northern Portugal. They bought the house as a ruin, without water or electricity. Using local craftsmen they painstakingly converted it into the luxury farmhouse it is today. Their attention to detail and desire to retain as many original features as possible can be seen throughout the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
There are wonderful walks right from the front door along paths and caminos. Tiny hamlets scatter the countryside with pastures for sheep and cattle. It’s a wonderful place for bird watchers and in spring wildflowers blanket the landscape. Perhaps Campo Verde’s main attraction is its central location providing visitors quick and easy access to Galicia’s main attractions; Santiago de Compostela, Lugo, Ourense, the coast, The Camino de Santiago, the fjord-like canyon of the river Sil, to name but a few.
