Ortigueira Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Our cozy guest house just steps from the ocean is ideal for a romantic getaway!

The guesthouse is situated inside the private estate of the well-known 'Glass House', just 70 meters from the spectacular cliffs of Loiba. The estate sits on top of a hill overlooking the small village of Loiba to the south-east and the ocean and Estaca de Bares to the north-east. It is the perfect place to enjoy the solitude and tranquility that this country/ocean setting has to offer. The guesthouse has a loft-like distribution with an open kitchen but a long, sliding door offers the option of closing off the bedroom from the living/dining/kitchen area. There is a wood-burning stove which not only offers warmth and comfort for those cooler days and evenings, but the sound of the crackling fire and flickering flames add a cozy touch and even company, like another welcome guest. The kitchen is fully equipped allowing for abundant breakfasts, cozy lunches, afternoon tea, or romantic dinners. When the weather permits those meals can be had on the porch. Local jams, produce and bread are available upon request.

Dinners in our main house with us can also be arranged subject to our availability.

Bicycles are available at the house.

The guesthouse has been furnished as if it were our own home with personal touches and we hope that our guests will feel so comfortable that they will never want to leave!

The house is a 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach, Playa de Fabega, a 15 minute walk to Picon, another spectacular beach, and a 30-40 minute walk to Esteiro, a beach well-known to surfers but also perfect for families since the Esteiro river ends there, making it perfect for children to swim in since the water is calm and very shallow. All these locations can also be reached by bicycle, motorbike, or car. Although most people come visit the area by car, one could also easily come here without one. The FEVE train station(daily trains to and from Ferrol) is just down the hill about 400 meters away and the bus station (daily buses to and from La Coruña and Santiago de Compstela) is just 700 meters away. There is a small supermarket about 400 meters away that has absolutely everything, several Bars/cafés, and a very good restaurant that offers local cuisine.

The activities in the area endless, I could easily write a book! There are options for everyone ranging from hiking, fishing, horseback riding, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, quad excursions, bird watching, or simply relaxing at one the dozens of beautiful beaches...Espasante beach, Celtigos, Sarridal, Carro, Fabega, Picon, Esteiro, Vilela, Vares, Caolín, Xilloi, many more!

About Claudia Frantzen

We are a happy family of three enjoying the secluded, spectacular landscape that this little known region of Spain has to offer. We love nature, good food, and serenity, all things that we can enjoy here, and love sharing our insights and tips with those who take the time to come here.

Why Claudia Frantzen chose La Coruna Province

We love the remoteness of this area and the spectacular, untouched beauty of the nature here, as well as the delicious, fresh, local seafood.

What makes this cottage unique

What we enjoy most here is the seclusion and countless number of gorgeous, deserted beaches we can go to in the summer, the inexpensive fresh seafood, and the endless trails for hiking. The area is unique because even in the middle of summer you can be the only one sitting on a vast, stunning beach!

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing and located in the most spectacular part of Spain. The walk along the nearby cliffs and beaches is breathtaking. The apartment is very comfortable and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. It was such a beautiful place to come 'home' to each day. Thankyou Claudia and Victor for making us so welcome and for all your suggestions for restaurants and beaches to visit. This is definitely a place we will remember.

A super-comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A private, spacious apartment decorated with taste in a beautiful part of Galicia. A gorgeously comfortable bed and full floor to ceiling windows with a view of the green countryside to the south. Five minutes walk to a wonderful viewpoint and a little further to the famous bench! We really enjoyed discovering this wild part of the Galician coast from different viewpoints. Many thanks to Claudia and Victor for their welcome and for excellent tips about local restaurants and places to visit.

Ein Ort zum Genießen!

  • 5 of 5

Nach einer 10-tägigen Rundreise durch Nordspanien haben wir eine wunderbare Woche an diesem traumhaften Ort verbracht. Die Besonderheit des Hauses, die schöne Einrichtung des Appartements, die Ruhe, die herrliche Umgebung, die abwechslungsreiche, blühende Küste und natürlich auch das angenehme Wetter... all das hat dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns rundum wohlgefühlt und gut erholt haben. Es fehlt wirklich an nichts. Claudia und Victor mit ihrem Sohn Tristan sind sehr nette Gastgeber - schon im Vorfeld fühlt man sich mit Nachfragen (z.B. wegen der Anfahrtsroute) bestens aufgehoben.

Liebe Claudia, lieber Victor - Danke für alles, auch für den schönen Abend in Eurem Traumhaus und die interessanten Gespräche! Wir wünschen Euch weiterhin viele nette, zufriedene Gäste und hoffen, dass Ihr Euer Paradies in Loiba möglichst jeden Moment genießen könnt. Wir werden die Tage bei Euch nicht vergessen!

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

The Hiddn Secret on the Cliff is truly a paradise in every way. First, the people. Claudia, Victor, and their son Tristan are a warm, kind, generous, fun, and smart little family, delightful in every way. We feel honoured to have spent time with them and they will be in our hearts, always. Next, the place. The Hidden Secret on the Cliff is a very stylish, cozy nest located on the ground level of their spectacular home. The bed was deliciously shrouded in gorgeous linens and our son was equally comfortable on the sofa bed in the living room. The vistas from the huge wall of windows or the welcoming terrace are breathtaking. It's a short stroll to the cliffs and beaches that are truly spectacular and among the most beautiful in Spain if not the continent. The fact that they were pristine and mostly deserted added to their rugged charm and to our enjoyment daily. Without a rental car we explored on foot or bike (provided by Claudia) all the cliffs and coves as well as the tiny village of Loiba just down the hill where we purchased groceries daily for our simple meals prepared in our well-provisioned kitchen. Lastly, the things. In addition to just "being" and exploring this magical place, Claudia also made arrangements for us to go surfing! An excellent local surf company, 'Surf Oxygeno', run by David, provided lessons and all equipment as well as transportation to the best surfing beach. After three days and many attempts, our progress was thrilling.

Do you have the impression that we loved, loved, loved our time at The Hidden Secret on the Cliff? I hope so! Our family continues to bask in the light within us, two weeks after our stay there. Hopefully this light will linger

for the foreseeable future, until we can return to this paradise!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

My stay in Loiba was pure relaxation from start to finish. I was made to feel right at home by the owners. The apartment is so comfortable, I didn't want to leave. They've thought of everything that you might need from homemade jam for breakfast to plenty of outlets and a bed that felt like sleeping on clouds. If you want to escape to one of the most beautiful, unspoiled ocean front spots in Spain, I highly recommend booking this property.
