Casa de Eulalia, Galicia

Camelle | Ref: GCAM5 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 5

Stylish seaside house in old fishing village, close to beach, bars and port.

A very recently restored and renovated semi-detached, stone, three storey cottage in an enclosed courtyard very near the town beach in the fishing village and port of Camelle.

Imaginatively and artistically designed to make the best use of space, very well presented and maintained, it is attractively decorated and furnished and equipped with comfort in mind.

Off a lane with other houses around, backed by pine woods, a short walk will take you to another small beach and a much longer walk along the coast to the impressive wild Playa de Traba with its dunes and lagoon.

There is a children's playground just round the corner and the port, bars, simple restaurants and shops are an easy stroll away.

NB. There is a house next door, but it is unoccupied.

Accommodation Description

Camelle, on La Costa Da Morte, is a sleepy, old fishing port, with its fair share of newer buildings. Houses climb down the hill to the jetty and harbour, where boats come in and out at a gentle pace.

There’s a town beach and a smaller cove round the corner from that and a popular beach with surfers at the next village,Arou (a short drive or a walk of about 20 minutes).

The village has a small supermarket, two butcher's, a chemist's and a health clinic and two excellent bakeries and bread, fish and other mobile vans come. Locals, who carefully tend their vegetable patches, will often sell you their produce as well as free range eggs.

There is further shopping at the little town of Ponte do Porto (six kms) where there is a weekly street market.

There are several bars and one restaurant and in the summer months, when the village and area are more lively, shacks on the beach offering fresh fish and seafood.

There is good walking along the rocky shore, through tiny fields; the drive or walk to Cabo Vilan takes you to a dramatic point from which to view the coast.

Local Activities

  • Beautiful beaches all along the coast - Playa de Arou, Playa de Traba, Playas de Leis and O Lago, Nemina..
  • Gentle walking and cycling locally.
  • Learn about "Man", the village's adopted son - see his "folly" on the rocks in the port.
  • Drive or walk to the lighthouse at Cabo Vilan - the oldest, electrically run lighthouse in Spain! Visit the English Cemetery there.
  • Day trips to A Coruña and Santiago de Compostela, a must.
  • Visit nearby Camariñas, famous for its lace-making.
  • Don't miss the "pottery" village of Buno - a great place for presents to take home.
  • Visit the castle at Vimianzo, now restored to house paintings, photos and crafts.
  • Explore the fishing ports of Muxia, Laxe, Corme and Malpica.
  • Go to the "end of the world" at Cape Finisterre.
  • Enjoy the local gastronomy - excellent, reasonably priced fish and seafood in the local bars and restaurants.
  • Celebrate with the locals. Fiestas crowd the calendar!

"We spent a week in a traditional cottage in the small port of Camelle in the Rias Altas region of Galicia with Casas Cantabricas. The cottage was lovely and the service good. Would recommend this part of Spain for a relaxing break", (Client 2016)
