If you are looking for a remote and peaceful apartment in the Santiago area, I can fully recommend this property. The booking process was quick and uncomplicated with Raquel who speaks english. The family is very friendly and welcoming and with Raquel's translation it was easy going.The spotless apartment is huge and all equipment we needed for cooking was available. The living area is very cosy, with beautiful paintings and plenty of candles available to light in the evening. The beds are comfortable with nice blankets which was needed as the temperatures during the night dropped to 13 degrees. As I am currently living in London, I really enjoyed the quiet house and environment which gave me an uninterrupted night sleep. We were deeply impressed by the beautiful maintained garden with a lot of arty stone constructions and a pool. The garden which is attached to the apartment has nice seating area, where we enjoyed amazing sunsets over Galicia.
The village Santiso is quite small so we did our shopping in Santiago except from the bread that you can buy from a vending bus. There are buses going to Santiago for 1.50€ but only twice a day so you need to be organised. Next time I would probably rent a car to get around more easily. The Camino de Frances is nearby and on our first day we just walked to Santiago, which was very well signed and we met interesting people. Santiago is an exhilarating, historical city with plenty of opportunities to do. There is a central bus station where you can get buses to the airport, different destinations in Galicia like Finisterre and back to Santiso. It was a bit tricky with the buses, but Raquel was an invaluable source to get al the information we needed.
I would definitely recommend this place to my friend and relatives and I hope to have another holiday here in the near future.
