Las Camelias, GaliciaSan Cosme de Barreiros | Ref: GSCB1 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6
Beautifully converted farmstead in extensive grounds near Playa Catedrales.
Maintaining many of its original features, but allowing for all modern comforts, the owners, with a clever eye for interior design, have created a very special country home.
Very well equipped, comfortable and spacious, furnished with antiques and interesting ornaments and paintings, they have ensured that each room, most with lovely sea views, has its individual character. The living room alone with its high beamed ceiling is a delight to be in, a perfect place to relax and unwind.
In the upper part of San Cosme de Barreiros with most facilities, the nearest beach is at three kilometres, and many more, including the well known Playa de las Catedrales, a little further. The local area is great for beach lovers with a superb choice from tiny coves to long stretches of fine white sand.
It makes an excellent base for exploring both the coast and interior of this part of Galicia, from the fascinating old whaling port of Rinlo, to dramatically placed Ribadeo, to Mondonedo with its cathedral and lovely Lugo with its impressive Roman walls.
