It is as it looks on the photos and the views out to the atlantic islands are amazing. The 2 restaurants below the house - 2 mins walk if that - are both fab and there is a fresh bread shop a 5 min walk away with a few small general provisions on offer, 10 mins gets you to the beach (you have to cross a busy road) but you are soon on a sandy beach. There is a coastal path right and left that takes you to beaches with beach bars - the nearest one with a bar actually on the sand is 10 mins to the left past the caravan site along a board walk after you cross the road - life guards, loos, food/drink and pedalos in a lovely cover. A longer walk to the right past the other caravan site takes you to beach after beach with great food on offer at various cafes. There is a lot of ecological preservation of the dunes going on and boards that tell you all about it. We even saw dolphins in the sea.
Ping pong matches in the garage were great fun but new bats and balls are needed as the current ones are worn out. Great local fish markets gave us high quality fish for the BBQ and a visit to the local vineyard gave us plenty of Albarino to drink. The master suite is fab with views and a large deck. It would be lovely to have more seating up there for others to join the lucky ones sleeping there.. but that might just be us as we were with our adult kids and wouldn't have sat there on our own. Patricia couldn't have been more helpful and brought us more sunbeds when we asked and offered recommendations re vineyards to visit and any other trips we wanted advice on. One tip (and it is not a criticism) - there were lots of DVDs on offer but no HDMI to link our laptops to netflix... we had great weather and didn't need TVs but it might be useful for wet weather. We didn't have a cable to link up to the speaker system either which is not bluetooth.
A Perfect Escape
We stayed at Catro Faros for a week on a family holiday and it was amazing! From the booking process and information from Patricia to the actual villa itself, everything was perfect. The location is a little isolated but there are 2 restaurants next door (Meson Xerfa is thoroughly recommended), beaches within 10minute’s walk and the small town of Portonovo 20 mins away. The villa is as good as it looks with all mod-cons and everything that we could need. The pool was still a bit cool but provided a welcome break from the heat. The surrounding countryside and beaches are beautiful and we can’t wait to return!
Beautiful house with amazing views
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely house. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Thank you for the great hospitality.
Wonderful holiday in Galicia
Our family of 8 (6 adults and 2 children) stayed in Patricias house for a week and we had a really wonderful holiday. The house is large and modern, the pool is clean and big enough for playing and relaxing, the area is nice and quiet. The beach is a short walk away and plenty more beaches can be reached within minutes by car. We recommend the restaurant just across the street, the beaches in Villanuevo de Arousa, a trip to a winery in Sanxenxo and a daytrip to Cies Island - Patricia will give you all the information you need to have a spendid holiday.
The perfect place in Galicia
Catro Faros is the definitive luxury vacation rental: contemporary architecture, light filled and spacious rooms, and truly impressive views from so many vantage points around the house, particularly as you relax around the pool. This is a hi-tech house - it took a little while to figure out the multiple ways to open the windows and doors, the numerous window shade remote controls, appliances, and sound system, but after a couple of days, it was second nature.
Given the abundant Galician seafood readily available from a nearby fish market and supermercados, we made extensive use of the kitchen and bbq, enjoying many delicious alfresco meals. And for your daily bread, it’s an easy walk to the best panaderia in the area, Panaderia A. Castro – say hi to the warm and welcoming Beatrice and tell her the bread baker from Los Angeles sent you.
The location is ideal for short drives to Combarro (our favorite fishing village), A Illa de Arousa (fabulous rock formations at low tide) and Ruta da Pedra e da Auga (a gorgeous riverwalk, part of the Portugese Way), and longer drives to A Guarda (Celtic settlement), Tui (medieval town), and Valenca (Portugal). It’s less than an hour to Santiago de Compostela, and from there it’s worth the trip to Muxia (where granite meets the sea) and Finisterre (the western most point in Spain). Despite many worthwhile day trips, there were many days we preferred to just enjoy the house, pool and incredible view.
Patricia was a friendly and responsive host. She was always available via Whatsapp to provide advice or recommendations. When asked about the best cabrito restaurant in the area, she said she’d ask around - she pointed us to Casa Pipeiro in Ponte Caldelas, which had absolutely the best cabrito. We’re real foodies and found many very innovative fine dining restaurants within a 30 minute drive whose meals easily competed with some our of best around the world. One of Patricia’s favorites also became ours - Pepe Veiras in Raxo.
Our stay was perfect. We’ve recommended Catros Faros to our friends and will definitely stay there next time in Galicia.
Thanks so much Jon, it was a pleasure to have a kind customers like you. We feel very happy you had enjoyed Galicia and Catro Faros. See you the next time!
Lovely Villa near Montalvo beach
This really is a fantastic holiday villa - if anything, it's better when you get there than in the photos. Excellent standard of accommodation and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The pool and the outside areas were lovely. We were fortunate with a week of hot weather, so lots of opportunities to swim and use the barbecue. The restaurant opposite is very nice and so convenient that we only ate elsewhere once. The beach is a 10 mins walk from the house and we thought it one of the nicest beaches along this stretch. The views from the house are fantastic. All in all we had a thoroughly relaxing time and would recommend the villa for a great holiday.
