Province Galicia Village Rivas Location Type Village
General Description This cosy, detached, stone cottage, standing in 9000m2 of fully enclosed grounds with an outdoor, heated swimming pool, has recently been restored and renovated to a high standard.
Tastefully decorated, attractively furnished and well equipped, with your comfort in mind, sitting or eating out on the front porch, with views of the fields beyond, will take away all the stress of modern life.
Great for children too, with so much outdoor space to run around in and with a football net as well!
The house is located in the tiny farming hamlet of Rivas, surrounded by beautiful countryside, it is seven kilometres from the interesting coastal town and fishing port of Muxia. On the Camino de Santiago, with lovely, sandy beaches, in the Rias Altas of Galicia, it makes a perfect base for a country-cum-seaside holiday.
Though seemingly away from it all, the bread van calls everyday and there is a small grocer's at one kilometre. In the area there is a good choice of restaurants serving locally caught fresh fish and seafood. Finisterre "the end of the world" is an easy drive, and days out to the fascinating, historical cities of Santiago and A Coruna are perfectly feasible.
Accommodation Description Front gate opens into 9000m2, fully enclosed grounds with a good sized heated 9m x 4m swimming pool in the lower part and a garage.
Paved and covered front porch with comfy garden furniture. From this, front door opens into large open plan living room with a fully fitted kitchen and a cloakroom.
