|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The apartment is located in the centre of this upmarket seaside town, with its shops, restaurants and marina. Great for families with very close proximity to the beach, also very suitable for couples looking for a romantic break. There is something for everyone, sailing, rowing, fishing, swimming, walking and visiting local attractions.
The apartment has 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), 1 bathroom, kitchen, lounge, hallway and utility room. The city of La Coruna is 20 minutes drive and Santiago de Compostela is about 1 hour drive.
An added bonus is free car parking in this town all day.
Opening hours: Normal opening hours of shops and business in this area is from 10am (some supermarkets open at 9am) until 2pm. From 2 until around 4.30 shops and businesses close. They re-open at 4.30 until 8.30 or 9pm. It is quite normal to eat late in the evening here - at around 9.30 or 10pm for dinner and 2pm for lunch, although of course if you would like to eat earlier this is not a problem - the choice is there. On Saturday afternoons, the road where the apartment is situated closes for a large market until around 10pm. You will find fresh produce here (fruit and veg) also stalls with clothes, music, shoes etc. and local cheeses.
My husband daughters & myself were met at the apartment by Cristina's father who with his wife showed us the apartment and nearby carparking (all free). As we arrived quite late we really appreciated the basic fresh provisions they had provided. The apartment was beautiful, clean, tidy & everything there for a perfect stay. Due to it being a pedestrianised area deliveries to the shops are quite early and sometimes a little noisy. There is a well stocked supermarket directly below the apartment as well as nearby bakery and a really good cafe called Quimbaya around the corner who serve wonderful coffee and fresh Churros (finger doughnuts) which you can dip in chocolate....delicious! Our main purpose for the holiday was to visit family in Coruna but we are so glad we stayed in Sada as we found it very relaxing, a lovely marina, good shops, bars & restaurants. Although Sada has enough going on and you could get away without a car there is so much to see outside of Sada some beautiful beaches and lush green scenery, reminded me of Ireland. It helped that my husband speaks Spanish but it gave me and my daughters a reason to have a go at the language as this is not the Costas, this is real Spain. We will return.
We had a wonderful stay at Cristina's apartment in Sada. We were there for 9 nights to visit family. We have been to Sada many times before and are therefore familiar with the town and surrounding areas. The apartment is great, very clean and well maintained, with a great bathroom and kitchen, and is located right in the heart of the town. The beach is only moments away. I had seen some earlier reviews about the apartment being noisy and that is true to a certain extent, however closing the interior shutters at night blocked out the sounds of the supermarket deliveries (there's a great supermarket right below the apartment) and other street noises. We had no problems sleeping. There is also a washer and dryer in the apartment which we used regularly and were grateful for. The only thing the apartment did not have was wifi, which was slightly inconvenient but not terribly so, as every bar, restaurant, and cafe in the area offers free wifi....and if you're vacationing in Spain, you will spend considerable amounts of time in these places. Thank you Cristina for helping make our trip so wonderful!
we liked this apartment for its convenience..an easy walk to anything in town,although Sada is very small anyway. The supermarket just downstairs was
very handy. The people were most helpful and friendly. Several times people
actually walked us round to a location we asked directions for. It was a bit inconvenient that there was no wi-fi
The appartment is lovely, well equipped, clean and comfortable. Our welcome was warm and helpful and the journey by car was without problems- mostly (see below).
We were with a ten year old boy and looking forward to snorkeling and swimming. The beach in Sada was not really suitable for this, although there is a good swimming beach just on the way out of town, and so we went on a search, eventually finding some exciting sandy beaches in rocky bays north of Ferrol. Fabulous for surfing, body boarding and paddling for little ones. The seas are often rough though so perhaps not ideal for small children swimming and when we were there, too rough for snorkelling. On a calm day though, this would be superb I think, with masses of rock habitat to explore. We were only there for a few days so there will be many other beaches we did not find.
Driving around proved very difficult as all the road numbers are being changed resulting in the numbers on even up to date maps being totally different from those on the roads! Our sat. nav. saved us but life would have been very difficult without it. This will no doubt be resolved soon.
Spain is noisy and Sada is no exception, so be prepared to rise early and go to bed late! The cafes and bars in the town are good and the food in the Miramar (about 300 metres from the flat) very good and reasonably priced. We had one other meal out in Sada at a fairly expensive restaurant up by the dock which was very poor indeed, so be cautious!
If you can find Galician music go and listen! Fabulous folk music, sometimes played in the park towards the marina in the evenings. There are also various festivals with the pinnacle being the celebration of Celtic music in Ortigueira that we went to. This is on in early July every year. Stunning and free! Galician culture and regional identity is very strong and worth investigating.
You need to be prepared to explore in order to find quiet places, if that is what you want! Without a car this would be impossible and so I would not recommend visiting without one. If you do not want a long drive through France from England, there is always the ferry to Santander!
We had an excellent week in Sada staying in this lovely apartment. The apartment more than lived up to its description. It is well set out, spotlessly clean and was very comfortable for the four of us. Cristina provided a warm welcome to our family, providing information about the local area and answered all our queries. It is in a great location, minutes from the promenade and beach, and in the midst of all the local amenities. The cafes and restaurants are very spanish and good value, and the locals very friendly and all this is literally on your doorstep. In April, car parking was easy! The purpose of our stay was to visit our daughter who is staying in A Coruna, but she loved Sada and the apartment, and so ended up staying with us for a welcome break from a busy city. Sada has its own gentle character at this time of year and has a lovely ambience. Travelling by car to the major sites in Galicia was straightforward and we mixed lazy sunny days in Sada with sightseeing. Brilliant! We look forward to another visit soon.
After phoning Christina, she came & met us & took us to her beautiful apartment which was spotlessly clean & very well equipped.
Sada is a very nice place with lovely beaches all along the coast .
The beaches that you can see in the distance over the other side of Sada beach only take about half an hour to reach & are very nice too.
The aquarium at La Coruna is worth a visit & a good couple of hours spent there looking at all different sea life plus the seals. It offers "hands on" activities for the children, big ones as well as little ones.
We found a lovely cafe A Pulgueira which sold the best coffee for not a lot of money which is situated on the corner opposite the 1st roundabout as you enter Sada.
We had 2 lovely meals in the Italian restaurant opposite the entrance to the Marina.
We really enjoyed our stay in Sada ,found the prices reasonable & wouldn't hesitae to reccommend Chrisina's apartment to anyone.
The apartment is located in the main street, although there are no noisy bars or restaurants in this road so the shops close around 8.30 or 9.00pm. Very close to the beach and the marina is a lovely walk along the promenade, with good restaurants. Everything you might need is within close proximity, doctors, chemist etc. The nearest supermarket is on the ground floor of the apartment building and the actual apartment is on the first floor, so you only need to go down 1 flight of stairs to do any grocery shopping! There is also an elevator available. There is no long drive to or from the airport. La Coruna airport is about 20 minutes drive depending on traffic and flight time is 1 and a half hours from London Heathrow. There is a direct flight from Heathrow daily with Vueling airlines.
The road where the apartment is situated is pedestrianised and only open for loading and unloading for shops and business from 8am to 12 noon. It is closed to traffic from 12noon to 8am
