Casa Morrazo, GaliciaVino | Ref: GVIN2 | Bedrooms: 3 | Sleeps: 6
Stylish, detached, modern house with pool near three superb beaches.
On the road, leading to the beaches, in the pretty little, friendly, coastal village of Vino with a special micro climate (even mangoes grow here!), this very well appointed, equipped and presented house has under floor heating, a central vacuum cleaning system and wifi.
Comfortably and attractively furnished and decorated with very interesting paintings by the owner's wife, Mila, a well known Galician artist, its star point maybe the spectacular view from the upper balcony looking onto the Ria de Vigo and the Islas Cies beyond.
Perhaps more importantly are the care and thought that the owners have dedicated to the house, including providing children's toys and a tempting welcome pack with local products and their intimate knowledge of the area which they will share with you.
Though Vino has no shops, nearby Hio and Aldan, do, and the beaches have beach bars serving food. Good local restaurants, including an excellent fish restaurant, Cabo Home, at Donon, are within an easy drive.
The fishing ports and seaside towns of Cangas and Bueu, just over fifteen minutes in the car, have most facilities, including ferries to the Islas Cies and Islas Ons.
Day trips to the fascinating, ancient cities of Vigo, Pontevedra and Santiago are easy. You are perfectly placed!
