Pena Da Lontra (GVIG4)

Pena Da Lontra
Location Type


General Description
Over forty years ago the delightful, warm and welcoming owners of this stylish and interesting, modern, semi-detached house chose to live in this magnificently dramatic and beautiful spot on the spectacular rugged coastline running south from the fascinating city and port of Vigo, where the writer, Laurie Lee, landed to start his amazing travels through Spain.

Too wonderful not to share, they decided to offer this property and three others which are set in their lovingly landscaped and nurtured gardens, right on the coast, looking out to the magical Islas Cies, to those wanting a complete break from the stress and worries of modern times. Just the sunsets alone - never one the same, and the benign micro-climate of the Rias Baixas in Galicia, will take your troubles away.

Pena Da Lontra, taking its name from a rock in its view, where a family of otters used to live and play, is the latest addition to the group of houses.
Imaginatively and artistically designed and presented, cleverly making use of space and light, and tastefully decorated and furnished, blending in perfectly with the modern style, this semi-detached cottage with its mesmerizing view, makes a great base for a seaside holiday. The large enclosed terrace at the front, almost forming part of the living area, is alone, a delight for sitting and eating out, soaking in the magical surroundings.

The properties and 3000m2 of enclosed, shared grounds are in a small, pretty, residential area, facing the coast. The little, local beach and restaurant are a very short walk and the nearest shop and another beach a tiny bit further.

Not far away is La Playa de Patos, great for surfing, Monte Ferro, good for walking, and just beyond the laid back (but lively in summer) resort of Panxˇn, with a lovely horseshoe bay with typical bars and restaurants, serving seafood delights. The city of Vigo is a fifteen minute drive and Santiago de Compostela an hour away.

N.B. The owners have several pets. They will accept pets.
N.B.2 The owners prefer two-week bookings in the summer
