Province Galicia Village A Bragana Location Type Village
General Description This delightful, C18th, stone detached house with an annex in a beautifully maintained, fully enclosed garden with a salt water swimming pool, sits on the edge of the peaceful farming hamlet of A Bragana, near the pretty, little, spa town of Cuntis.
Meticulously and lovingly restored and renovated, attractively presented and very well looked after, it is cosy and comfy, blending tradition with modern innovations.
Tastefully decorated and furnished in rustic style, there are interesting agricultural artefacts both in the interior and exterior, adding a true sense of the past.
The addition of the annex with its own kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms, makes it an ideal choice for two families who wish to holiday together, but also to have their own space.
In lovely, wooded countryside with wonderful walks with waterfalls, it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. The historical cities of Santiago and Pontevedra are just half an hour away and the river beach on the Rio Ulla fifteen kilometres. A little further you'll find the fantastic beaches of the Rias Baixas.
