Los Avellanos
Location Type


General Description
The true delight of this lovely, 200 year old, stone, detached house with a swimming pool, lies in its lovingly tended, magical, fully enclosed garden (2000 square metres) with a great variety of trees, including one hundred camelias and an ecological vegetable patch. With a traditional stone "lavadero" (washing place), two small ponds and a BBQ area, it is a real treat for children to explore and play in.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside with vineyards, in a sleepy, farming hamlet with other houses around, in the interior of the Rias Baixas, yet only half an hour to the coast, in the southernmost part of Galicia, the house has been carefully and sympathetically restored, maintaining many of its original features and with artistic touches.

Quite simply, but comfortably furnished and equipped and decorated in the rustic style, there is no grandeur here - instead the emphasis focuses on your relaxation and switching off from the stress of modern life. There are several sitting and dining areas both within the house and in its grounds, giving everyone their own space.

With two living rooms and kitchens, it is a good choice for two families wishing to holiday together, yet with a bit of independence.

Though seemingly away from it all, the charming little towns of As Neves and Arbo with their covered markets and the River Mino with its fluvial beaches and Portugal beyond are a short drive away and the lively city and port of Vigo just thirty five kilometres.
