Casa Chan
Location Type


General Description
This large old stone detached house, set in its own enclosed grounds (2000 square metres) with a swimming pool, in the hamlet of Barcela with other houses around, has very recently been restored and renovated to maintain its original charm combined with modern elegance.

Beautifully, thoughtfully and artistically designed, furnished and decorated by its owners, with great attention paid to detail, the use of stone, wood, glass and iron blended with many pieces of antique furniture make this a very special house indeed.

In addition to the main house which comprises three bedrooms, the living room and the kitchen, there is a separate outbuilding where there is a fourth double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.

Spacious and light, the large windows give onto the delightful garden with fruit trees and huge centenarian camelias, and to vineyards and gently rolling hills beyond. A truly peaceful, country spot, just a few kilometres away from the imposing River Minho which makes a natural border between Spain and Portugal in southern Galicia.

Please note: the pool is not enclosed and the internal design may not be ideal for toddlers (please study the photo gallery and give us a call if you have any doubts).
Accommodation Description
Front gate opens into large enclosed grounds, part gravelled, part laid to lawn (2000 square metres) with swimming pool (not enclosed), fruit and other trees and lovely views of the surrounding countryside and hills beyond. Gravelled area by the house with garden furniture.

From the gravelled area, front door opens into open plan entrada with a bathroom and wood staircase which goes up to the first floor. Off the hall is the large kitchen/diner with a glass door that opens onto the sitting/dining out area in the garden.

The staircase which leads from the entrada takes you to the first floor with a very large open plan living/dining room with windows all around with fantastic views, a gallery and a door onto a terrace and exterior staircase which leads down to the garden. Part of the floor is glass, looking down onto the kitchen.
