Casita Samieira (GSAM1)
Samieira Location Type
The joy of this perfectly equipped, lovingly cared for log cabin with dip pool, must be its beautifully maintained 3000 square metre landscaped garden with an amazing variety of trees and shrubs and the breath taking view it commands of the coast and the Ria de Pontevedra.
Sitting above the coastal village of Samieira, in a quiet residential area, backed by hills and woods and vineyards, you almost feel that you are floating on clouds as you gaze out to sea.
Every detail has been thought of in the cottage to make it a cosy, practical, very well equipped and comfortable home in all weathers. It is especially suited to young children whose needs have been so carefully considered from games (there is even a video game console) and toys to a swing and slide, not to mention the pool.
Although you are in one of Galicia's most touristy areas - the picture postcard fishing village of Combarro with its famous horreos is not far away and the historical city of Pontevedra a little bit further - you certainly are in a different, more tranquil world here.
The nearest beach is a half an hour walk (five minutes in the car), along the fascinating route of the 23 watermills "muinos" in the municipality. There is horse-riding just down the lane, a golf course a short drive away and numerous restaurants to suit all budgets, including the very special "furanchos" (privately owned homes which open up as restaurants at certain times of the year).
You couldn't be better placed!
