Casa Do Consul, GaliciaPlaya de San Roman | Ref: GVIV3 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6
Lovely designer house right by the beach. Lively Viveiro & picturesque O Barqueiro nearby.
Modern and minimalist in style with interesting paintings and etchings, it is spacious, very comfortable and relaxing and the view alone will keep you mesmerized.
Set on a quiet lane in the sleepy hamlet of Lugar de Sisto with traditional farmers as your neighbours, and woods at the back to take a gentle stroll, you are only a five minute walk to the beautiful sandy, cliff backed beach of Playa de San Roman with two bars with restaurants.
With a lovely terrace and garden it is great for those seeking peace and quiet, yet within a ten minute drive you have all the facilities you need at either lively Viveiro or smaller O Vicedo in the other direction. For day trips Santiago de Compostela, A Coruña and Lugo are all within easy reach. A perfect place for a seaside holiday with plenty of culture.

Playa de San Roman
There is a beach bar/restaurant and another bar/restaurant on the road running through the village and although there are no shops, bread and fish vans come to the neighbourhood and locals are happy to sell you produce from their farms.
Traditional farming is still very much a way of life here!
