Superb apartment, lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a week in this superb apartment. It’s just as in the photos & description - very comfortable, practical, light & airy, spotlessly clean, quiet, and the terrace with its views are a constant delight, day or night. In the streets immediately outside the building are lots of good food shops of all sorts, so it was easy to stock up the kitchen on arrival and to top up later on too.

In and around Vigo I found lots of interesting things to do and places to go, so to offer you a flavour of the place, here is how I spent my time. Naturally I began by exploring the marina and port, then the following day I walked up high to the top of the nearby Parque do Castro. It has lots of mature trees & plants, and monuments etc, and impressive panoramic views from the top. I was pleased to realise that such a beautifully green park with lovely fresh air was only a 5 minute walk from the apartment.

After seeing some enticing information in a booklet in the apartment on another day, I followed its long, varied & satisfying walk (about 8 miles), from the apartment (up & through the city, away from the port) to the Parque de Castrelos, and from there followed the now level footpaths that track the Rio Lazares all the way to where it flows into the sea!, at Playa Samil. There were various places to eat, drink, and enjoy on the way too. Then, after relaxing at the (lovely) beach for a while, it was easy to take the no. 10 bus back to Vigo marina.


The 45 minute ferry to the Illes Cíes was another special destination (nature reserve), with as much walking, spectacular views, beautiful beaches, woods and cliff tops as I wanted, all on well signposted routes.

I began another day by returning to the foot of the nearby Parque do Castro to visit the Castro de Vigo open-air museum to see the ancient remains and modern reconstructions, excellently done and giving food for thought. Then I went to the nearby vegetarian restaurant Gálgala, for food for stomach(!), which had delicious healthy food, freshly made with imaginative recipes (one of which I’m going to try at home), a very nice welcoming ambience.

Other things I enjoyed were living in the centre of the lively city, visiting the very large El Corte Inglés department store, and many other streets of shops and cafes etc. I also used two more days, basking on the ferry journeys, to explore the small seaside towns of Cangas and Moaña, just across the water. I discovered I like ferries!

Lovely modern apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely, bright, clean, well designed with 2 good sized bedrooms and a large bathroom with both bath and shower. The shower is very good. The views are great from the terrace which was a great place for breakfast and drinks in the evening as well as sunbathing during the day. The location is great - shops for groceries, fruit and veg and fresh bread are all just a few minutes walk away. Restaurants abound within a 15 minute walk but I would really recommend the vegetarian restaurant Galgala, just around the corner at the top of the street, and Cera Zona. For a great lunch try Terrae - a wholefood shop that also does great food. And Castro Park is nearby for a stimulating uphill walk and fantastic views over the city.

Thanks Homeaway!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best Homeaway properties I've ever stayed at. My partner and I enjoyed Beatriz's apartment for a week in June. Her ultra modern kitchen and bathroom will appeal to Americans, and the city center location means that groceries, cafes, and bakeries are all moments away. Her apartment is easily big enough for a family or two couples, and the terrace is lovelier than the photographs. Bitadorma Vigo, on Ecuador 56, is a terrific seafood restaurant nearby. If you have a car to explore Galicia or Portugal, her building has private parking! Go!

Enjoying the life in the heart of Vigo

  • 5 of 5

I have enjoyed a peaceful time in this beautiful apartment which has both: the location in the very centre of the city (all the shops and city attractions at a walking distance) as well as the peace and splendid views to the sea and river from its large terazza.

At first sight, the street and building might not be what you expect, but the apartment itself is extremely nicely arranged and decorated, with new and high-quality things.

I was alone but it is large enough to accommodate a family and you have everything you need to feel like home instead of a tourist. Myself, I found refreshing to be able to take the calls on the terazza enjoying the view, to cook in some evenings and to browse the internet from the apartment while I did laundry and waited for the dishwasher to finish its tour...

The owner was very helpful in any matter and I am sure I will return!

Owner's Response: Dear Malvine Thank you so much for this lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed the apartment and its location in the city. I also think it is one of its main keys and the terrace as well. We will be glad to welcome your family now for Halloween and wish you have fun those days so please do not work! Wish you all the best, Beatriz

Car: not necessary

The Rias Baixas offers a privileged environment for the practice of the nautical sports, especially sailing. The Real Club Nautico de Vigo is within 10 min walk, where you can also take a boat to Cangas and the Cies Archipielago which, in 2007, the British newspaper 'The Guardian' choose Nr. 1 of the top 10 beaches of the world.

Car hire is not essential to fully enjoy the city and the surrounding towns as there is a really good connection by bus, train and boat. Most bus lines stop at Puerta del Sol next to the tourist office within 5 min walking, including the one that goes directly to the airport (around 2 euros ticket or 20 euros by taxi). By train you can easily reach Pontevedra, La Coruña or Santiago de Compostela and spend the day.

If you prefer going south, hire a car to drive to the impressive castro of Santa Tecla and then go up the gorgeous River Miño or jump to the other side to visit our neighbour Portugal.

Other Activities: Romanesque Art from XII Century, Celtic and Megalithic sites, Roman bridges.
