Province Galicia Village Magan Location Type Village
General Description From the pretty little spa town of Cuntis, a romantic drive through lovely countryside and woods leads you to the sleepy hamlet of Magan and this impressive, spacious, detached, stone house with a salt water swimming pool.
Set in an extensive, landscaped garden with its own horreo (traditional grainstore) and other interesting, original stone features, backed by woods on one side and with views over the village to the valley on the other, it makes the ideal place to soak in the natural surroundings and unwind.
The house, immaculately renovated and maintained, is functional and practical, comfortably and sensibly furnished with the aim of your relaxation and well being in mind.
As well as the facilities in the main house, there is a second fully fitted kitchen/diner in the annex next to the BBQ area to make al fresco meals easy and a fantastic jacuzzi room along with showers in the basement, perfect for all the family.
A short walk takes you to the village's "furancho" - a simple country bar, serving regional food, to eat there or take away. Though seemingly away from it all, the historical cities of Santiago and Pontevedra are just half an hour away and the river beach on the Rio Ulla fifteen kilometres, with the fantastic beaches of the Rias Baixas a little bit further.
Accommodation Description Front gate opens into paved drive and extensive, fully enclosed grounds with the 8.50m x 4m swimming pool, backed by woods, to one side. Annex with a kitchen/diner and BBQ area on the other side.
Drive leads up to the house. Up three steps to the front door. Front door opens into the hall. Off this, there is a kitchen/diner and a bathroom.
From this, a passage leads to one bedroom (one double) and a spacious living room. A door from this opens onto a large, paved terrace looking onto the grounds and surrounding area.
From the hall, up marble tiled staircase to the landing where there is a sitting area. Off this there is a door onto a large paved terrace with views onto the grounds and the surrounding countryside.
A passage from the hall leads to a second bathroom and three bedrooms (one double, one double and one with three single beds, a bunk bed and a "z" bed).
