Casa Lucinda, GaliciaAs Lobeiras | Ref: GLOB1 | Bedrooms: 4 | Sleeps: 8
Beautiful barn conversion in magical country spot with fantastic beaches nearby.
Comfortably and stylishly furnished, decorated and equipped, designed with a great feeling of space, it is a haven of peace, ideal for those wanting to get away from it all.
There is plenty of outdoor space too, with an attractive patio for eating out and an enclosed garden at the side of the house. At the back there is a very pretty courtyard with a fountain made from the original slate roof of the barn, which is shared with the owners who live in the main farmhouse across the way.
In a dreamy, rural spot, it is a short drive down to the old town of Mino on the coast and to a choice of wonderful, sandy beaches which are popular in the summer. You are within easy reach of the lively cities of A Coruna and El Ferrol and nearer at hand medieval Pontedeume and Betanzos with its Celtic origins. Two impressive ruined monasteries are literally down the road as are Las Fragas do Eume, one of the best conserved forests in Europe with all sorts of outdoor activities for the energetic.
Here you have the best of both worlds!
N.B. A generous welcome pack is left by the owner for all visitors. Also, the owner can arrange a masseuse to visit, should you feel like a top rate massage at reasonable prices.
