Cedeira House Rental Photos and Description

A stone house in a traditional hamlet with all comforts for 8 people.

'Lugar pequeno' is a stone house located in a place of privilege in the small galician hamlet of Golmar, at the head of an untouched valley some 200m above sea level. The house, with all comforts, is the summer home of its owners. It fusions tradition, family heirlooms and a touch of modern style. From all rooms and garden, it enjoys clean, extensive and impressive views over a green valley, forest, cliffs, sea and some 80Km of virgin Atlantic coast.

The hamlet is located within a EU natural area of Community Interest due to its ecosystem. You will enjoy complete tranquility, being only at 4 Km distance to the fishing village of Cedeira, with shops, all facilities, a nice beach and seaport, and very good tapas restaurants.

You will enjoy some of the best sandy virgin beaches in Spain or hiking from the house through tracks to the cliffs or the lighthouse. Other activities, like surfing, horse riding or kayak are available in the area.

Beach and activities: You will enjoy of white sandy, clean and unspoiled beaches. You can choose among beaches with extensive dunes and wonderful views (Vilarube), calm water (A Magdalena) or high waves (Pantin, Baleo) , birdwatching or kite-surfing(Frouxeira), etc. Sonreiro is the hidden beach closer to the house, in a small cove close to the castle of 'La Concepción'.

End of August or September, “Pantin classic” is one of the qualifying series in the world surfing championship.

Last weekend of June local ranchers gather hundreds of wild horses living free in Capelada mountains (12Km away), in order to haircut their mains and tails, dworming horses, branding of foals born during springtime and buying and saling foals. A small fair and lunch accompanies these activities.

Hiking, surfing, horse riding or kayak are some of the activities to do in the area.

Excursions : In addition to the nice place of the house and its surroundings, other interesting spots to visit (within less than one-hour drive) are, towards East, Ortigueira, Estaca de Bares Cape, O Barqueiro and Viveiro and, towards West, the Natural Park Fragas do Eume, Pontedeume or St. Felipe casttle in Ferrol.

The towns of A Coruña or Santiago de Compostela, are excellent options for a day excursion (at 75 and 90 min-drive). Santiago is one of the most beautiful towns in Europe, declared UNESCO world heritage. Its medieval centre with the impressive cathedral (tomb of the appostle St. James) has been the destiny of pilgrimage for centuries. A Coruña, financial centre of Galicia and home of the biggest Spanish fashion firm, Zara, is a lively and nice city with a wide range of cultural, gastronomic and shopping possibilities, as well as a very nice old quarter. Inland, the town of Lugo (100 min. drive) is surrounded by an impressive complete Roman wall (of some 2 Km). Itscharming old centre includes a XII century cathedral.

How to get to: Affordable flights to the airports of Santiago de Compostela (SCQ) or La Coruna (LCG) are often available from London, Paris, Dublin, Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Portugal, and a number of spanish towns. Low cost airlines fly to these airports, in adition to traditional airlines (Iberia, TAP, Air Europa, Aerolineas Argentinas, etc.),

The 1.15 hour or 1.30 hour drive from La Coruña or Santiago airports is a pleasure in itself.

Be aware when using maps of GPS navigator that the hamlet of 'Golmar' appears as 'Golma' withouht the last 'r'

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was very accurate regarding the location, layout and facilities. Actually the pictures don't do the house justice. The house and the setting was much more beautiful in real life. We were in awe over the setting. The view of the ocean from the house was mesmerizing. We were glued to the sunsets over the water. The property was very clean and well-maintained. I would certainly return to the house and would recommend this property to a friend or relative. We vlsited the town of Cedeira regularly. Went to San Andres de Texeido - the drive of which was fantastic with all the pine trees and wild horses. We also went to Santiago de Compustela, Lugo, A Acoruna. There are many other places we would have like to explore but didn't have time. Perhaps next time. The food I fell in love with was Zortha and cannot find a recipe here for it. I'll just have to return to Galicia. The weather was perfectly warm. We were lucky.

Lovely house in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as it appears in the photos ; a fusion of old and new,very clean and in a tranquil setting. We had a great time relaxing in the galleried sitting area ,the view and sunsets are amazing. The house also has a well equipped kitchen and plenty of games, tv/dvd to keep children amused on the days when the weather isn't great.There was plenty of information on the local and surrounding areas.
The nearby town of Cedeira has supermarkets,bakers etc.. and a pleasant safe beach,ideal for smaller children.There are also many excellent beaches a further 10-30 mins away. For those wanting to eat out the nearest restaurants are in Cedeira.We ate at Badulaque and a little taverna (it's up a little alley) plus the pizzeria by the waterfront,we sampled some good fish dishes.
Over all this is a great location for a relaxing, away from the crowds holiday.

Staying at Lugar Pequeno

  • 5 of 5
This is a very special, quiet spot, in the hamlet of Golmar,with the most astonishing view from the side of the valley out to the sea. The sunsets are particularly special.

The house is well-equiped and very comfortable - and the arrangement of the upper sitting room, with the large Galician windows is excellent for reading or spending time.

We made visits to the outstanding local beaches and to towns and villages. We would recommend the property very highly to anyone wanting to mix a peaceful base with exploring Galicia.

St Andres

  • 5 of 5
It is difficult to find such a peaceful and relaxing place as this lovely house. Our family of 8 spent 10 fantastic days exploring Galicia from this hidden valley. The information we received from the owners was extremely helpful. We found in the house detailed instructions and some books, maps and information about activities and excursions. You will definitely need a car to make the most of your holidays, discover first class unspoiled beaches and travel around many interesting places (St. Andres and Cabo Ortegal are a must).

The house is comfortable, really well maintained and it has everything you could need. Most remarkable is its excellent position and its wonderful views to the Atlantic. Different stunning sunsets each evening!.

Supermarkets and (excellent) small restaurants can be found in the town of Cedeira, at 5 min driving distance. Don’t miss “marraxo” (shark) or “percebes” (goose barnacles). A drink after dinner at café Pinzon’s terrace by the river is also a pleasure.

We certainly recommend this property.

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5
The description given in the anouncement is rather complete and to he point. So, the view from the house is indeed very stunning, its interior is rather comfortable, tasteful, and fully equipped (including also a clothes washer, and even a selection of DVDs, CDs, and a small spanish / english library).

According to our view, up to four adults might live in the house together with up to three children.

The only and very small negative point with respect to the house concerns cleanliness, that reached only 95 points of 100.

The next city Cedeira is in a 5 minutes driving distance through an eucalyptus forest. The people there (and also in Golmar) are very friendly, the price level in the restaurants is low, the quality, however, high. In one of the cafes, fast access to the internet is possible (at a price of about 50 c / 30 min).

As for the sea and the weather, we were a little bit surprised by the low water temperature (below 20 °C). Nevertheless, swimming is possible. Cloudy and rainy days occur from time to time, a sun protection level higher than 30 is nevertheless recommended.

Away from the mass tourism of other regions, the house is located in the Rias Altas area and Costa Artabra, an undiscovered coastal zone of unique natural beauty. Within minutes from wonderful sandy beaches, estuaries, lagoons and impressive cliffs. You will be in a natural area included in the EU's network 'Natura 2000' of sites of interest due to their ecosystems and biodiversity. It is possible to see occasionally wild horses, foxes, wild boar or roe deer.

From the house, you can walk to the valley, forest and cliffs, the lighthouse or the small church of S. Antón. From the hamlet, you can take the footpath to the pilgrimage place of S. Andrés, which leads to the zone with the highest cliffs in the western European continent (620m. above the sea level), and impressive cape Ortegal, of geological interest. The house, at 4,5 Km from the fishing town of Cedeira, is an excelent base for exploring the region of Galicia: natural parks, world heritage towns and lively cities

Other Activities: kayak, kite surf, etc.

Golf: Campomar golf course
