GALICIAN FARMHOUSE AT EUCALYPTUS FOREST WITH VIEW TO ATLANTIC BAY

Valdovino Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

This is a lovingly restored farmhouse made from stone and wood, with 3 x 2 m open fireplace and great ocean view in unspoiled nature. It is 500m distance to one of the most beautiful beaches of Spain, 1.2 km of dunes and long fjords. It is a great surfing area. The house is situated in front of a eucalyptus forest. There are few tourists. It is 8 km distance to Cedeira, a pitoresque fishing village and 60 min. to Santiago de Compostela. Santiago belongs to the world heritage and is one of the most beautiful cities of Europe. The house is prepared for families with children and other creatures or two couples. It is good for any fans of nature and beaches, relaxing, hiking and discovering celtic heritage.

Beach and nature: White sandy, clean and unspoiled beach. Mostly nearly empty, not developed. There are different beaches with quiet water and some with high waves (facing east) Pantin Surf - open 5 min. Great for children, ample sea life, shells, no oil spill. The fjords fill up with the tide and are good for swimming. The Atlantic is mostly colder than the Mediterranean, but has much cleaner water. Dunes and high cliffs with wonderful views. Bird watching.

Hiking: There are hardly any organized trails except Camino de Santiago, all other quiet wild and rugged but save. Behind the house runs the pilgrim trail to San Andres de Texido, good hiking. Above the high plateaus you meet wild living horses and cattle and you will find all sort of plants and herbs, mushrooms and so on.

Peace and tranquility

If you like nature, peace and tranquility and proximity to amazing beaches then this is the perfect holiday house for you. If you want television, computers and modernity, then it won't suit you at all.

We stayed here with our teenage children for two weeks and had a really relaxing time. There is a pond teeming with frogs, a toad in the bathroom, and an amazing view from the garden. The open fire can be a bit smoky but we loved it and lit it in the evenings and even cooked over it. There were a few mosquitoes and one of the double beds doesn't have a net, the fridge isn't the most efficient, but these are minor quibbles compared to the position and character of the house.

There is lots to do in this area of Galicia: you can go surfing at Pantin, for a quieter sea Vilarubia is on your doorstep. We also went canoeing and walking. There are lots of lovely restaurants and if you go at the beginning of August, you will also see the fiesta - fireworks, processions, concerts...

The owner is very friendly and helpful. We are already planning to return.

Owner's Response: We talked to the toad, its a gold-eyed European toad and very shy. At the moment she refuses to leave, no idea why. An old german lore says, with a toad in your house, it never burns down. Maybe we can save on fire insurance and feed her.

We improved the Mosquito nets and urge our visitors to shut down windows at night, when the light is on. Anyways with this climate change, the Mosquitos are becoming very rare. I hope to see them one day on the endangered list.

This is all nature as it was before civilization did introduce a 20mm Japanese lawn. We tried too, even with gardening, but nature is stronger and we love it as it is, an incredible diversity of plants, which the indigents call hierba mala in lack of proper names. We think, its the best way to live with nature, saves on lawn-mover noise and pollution and the kids love all those different creatures in the pond.

The house is located near Villarube, in the Rias Altas 25 km east of Ferrol, (an old Navy town with beautiful art nouveau buildings). Cedeira, a lovely fishing village is only 8 km away. In 60 min. by motorway you get to Santiago de Compostela, one of the most beautiful villages of Europe. You can discover still unknown celtic culture- Very good seafood and wine in small restaurants, still not very expensive.

The Atlantik coast changes betrween cliffs (the hightest of Europe) and beautifull dune-beaches 500 to 2000m long with shallow and warm fjords, where you can walk at low tide discovering sealife.

The Country side is structured like in Ireland, but covered with Eucalyptustrees and loverly vallees. You will find some 1400 abandoned small villages, which you can achieve at a ggod price, Hiking the countryside and coast you will fing free running horses, oxen and goats and at night wild boars and Deer.

The coast changes every 5 km from wild with high surf to sweet and protected coves and sand dunes. Perfect for children.

The furnishing is rustic, cosy and typical. No high tech house. Water supply from own deep well, great quality. The garden features lemon and fig trees. Wood for the chimney is in a shed, you can cut and staple yourself if you want (very healthy). 100 sq. m salon/kitchen, chimney area – 70 sq. m parents living with bed - small and large guestroom for children or guests. 2 bathrooms. equipped in a rustic, simple but pleasing way. Galicia is always green, sometimes rain and wind.
