Casa Porto Barreiro, Galicia

Areas | Ref: GARE1 | Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10

Fabulous, luxurious log cabin with pool in spectacular grounds with nature all around you.

Set in beautifully maintained extensive enclosed grounds (9000 square metres) backed by woods, with a large landscaped salt water swimming pool, this fantastic luxurious log cabin will take your breath away. Just driving through the gates into this haven of peace and quiet in the midst of nature, you will feel as if the troubles of the outside world belong somewhere else and you might find it hard to leave.

The friendly, most attentive yet discreet owners (they live in extensive, separate grounds at the back of the house) and their maintenance staff (who look after the grounds and pool daily) will make sure your stay is a very special one.

Casa Porto Barreiro, with the warmth of its pine clad walls and floors, is spacious yet cosy, and very comfortable, with every attention to detail. Very well and tastefully equipped and furnished, both the interior of the house and the outside areas create a total feeling of relaxation and well being. Sitting on the terrace at night, watching the stars, is a marvel in itself.


Should you manage to tear yourself away, the nearby town of Ponteareas (famous for its festival of Corpus Christi in June, when the streets are paved with flowers) at two kilometres should have everything you need and the lively cities of Vigo, Pontevedra and Ourense are all within easy reach, while for beach days the lovely sandy beaches south of Vigo are just half an hour away.

Please note, the pool is not enclosed.

N.B. The property has WIFI; the maintenance staff will deal with your rubbish, clean the pool during your stay and open and close the awning over the terrace in the mornings and at night.
