Overview

Valdovino Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Nicely restored farmhouse with ocean view, kids and pets welcome

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.

About Volker Rosenkranz, Chelo Loureiro

Chelo Loureiro is a friendly Galician woman with a small company producing animation movies. Volker Rosenkranz is a retired German Logistics Engineer caring for the beaches aof Villarube and his sailboat. Both love good natural food, long conversations and nice visitors.

Volker Rosenkranz, Chelo Loureiro purchased this chateau / country house in 1970

Why Volker Rosenkranz, Chelo Loureiro chose Valdovino

This area of Spain Galicia is still very authentic and nature is mostly intact. No mass tourism but good developed infrastructure and lovely small fishing villages. The ocean is very clean and sometimes very wild and and fresh and on other days calm and sweet.

Galiziens love seafood, good vine and terific fresh bread and good meat from free roaming animals.

For vacations with lots of personal liberty, to relax, cook your own meal, breakfast at 3 pm,and realizing your dreams during stressy working seasons.

You can be quiet and feasting with much noise, nobody will care., ample space to be by yourself. Swimming in the bays and wave riding, large walks over the highest cliffs of europe discovering celtic heritage, 1,5 hrs to Santiago de Compostella for praying , eating, shopping or just discovering old Galizien architecture.

Your kids or you con take lessons in surfing or spanish language.

For bussinespeople or publik servants wondering what really is the effect of their daily toil, we have a large amount of wood to split (voluntary). It is such agreat feeling to see a pile of fresh smelling split wood made by you.

Evening sitting at the large open Galician fireplace and stare in the flames, smell the fire as your ancestors did some 2,5 million years long every night. It gives a good feeling of continuos life.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Ocean view, the nicely restored interior of the house are praised by all visitors. Most are saying that the internet picture do not show this . (we should improve).

Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5
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.

Sehr schönes Haus mit super Aussicht

  • 5 of 5
Das Haus und der Garten mit dem Froschteich hat uns gut gefallen. Beim Haus gibt es Morgensonne. Abends liegt das Haus im Schatten. Ende September war das Wetter schon ziemlich garstig (windig, sonnig, regen, bewölkt - immer alles zusammen), so dass es im Haus recht kühl war. Am Kamin konnte man sich jedoch gut wärmen und den offerierten Wein geniessen.

Der Gastgeber V. Rosenkranz ist sehr hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich. Wir wurden mit Wein, Empanade und Keksen empfangen. Es wurden uns hilfreiche Tipps sowie ein super Kontakt zu Stephanie (Surfschule Pantin) gegeben.

Im Haus stehen Badybords (keine Surfbretter) und viele weitere Spielsachen sowie interessante Bücher zur Verfügung. Surfbretter können bei der Pantin Surfschule ausgeliehen werden.

Es gibt verschiedene Strände in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Haus. Alle Strände sind sehr schön. Die Landschaft ist zauberhaft und die Leute sehr freundlich.

Unser Aufenthalt hat uns sehr gefallen uns wir können das Haus nur empfehlen.

ein sehr schönes angenehmes fast nur aus Holz und Stein bestehendes Haus mit Kunst und schönen Möbeln auf einem großen Grundstück mit gutem Ausblick auf eine Bucht. Dazu ein nicht aufdringlicher aber trotzdem umsorgender Vermieter mit guten Tips , viel Material für Kinder und Familie zum Spielen Lesen und Zeichnen, eine kleiner Tümpel, Angelgerät, Surfbretter . Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Ende Mai 2008

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.
