Illa de Arousa House Rental Photos and Description

Villa with 4 rooms for 6 persons. Ideally located on an island in the heart of the Rias Baixas (Galician fjords) very peaceful with all facilities. Large garden, terrace, entirely renovated, parking spaces. There is an overwhelming view to the sea from the house, the garden and the terrace (just 7 metres to the sea!). It is situated near important turistic centres: Cambados, the capital of Albariño wine, and Santiago are just 10 and 60 minutes by car (there is a 2 km bridge which links the island to the continent). We will welcome you and give you assintance when needed. Vegetables and fruits from our own vegetable garden will be available for free.

"This has been the most peaceful and relaxing location we have stayed in. Although it is only a short walk to the shops and bars on the island, there was no noise at all.

Maricarmen & Moncho were the perfect hosts bringing us mussels just collected from the sea by Moncho and letting us help ourselves to salad vegetables in the garden and lemons from the tree.

The house was all we could want, just two of us there but there was plenty of room for 6 people.

Every untensil we needed was there and the use of the washing machine was very useful.

The large marble table & benched outside was the perfect place for eating whilst looking at the amazing view.

We loved the island, beautiful walks to the two miradors and the lighthouse bar, we hardly used the car whilst we were there.

All in all a perfect country break but still near to several interesting towns and cities.

A magic hideaway in Galicia. Highly recommended."

  • 5 of 5

"This was the perfect holiday accommodation and location. One cannot imagine a more beautiful vista and more friendly people. The owners went out of their way to ensure that our stay in Galicia was an enjoyable one; the beauty of the surroundings took care of the rest. We loved the pace of life on the island and rarely wanted to leave. However, there is so much to explore nearby: Cambados, Sanxenxo, O Crove, Pontevedra. We spent our days on the beautiful patio and watching our young daughter collect shells on the beach across the street. We spent afternoons at one of the many beaches on the island and evenings back on our patio (we always ate outside). The accommodation was clean and perfect for a family that included grandparents (there is a separte suite on the second floor). Mari Carmen and her family are wonderful hosts and kept us supplied with mussels, grapes, lemons and vegetables from their garden. We would definitely go back."

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house in the perfect location owned by the nicest family. We used Isla de Arosa as a base to see much of Western Galicia - Pontevedra and Vigo to the south, the coast, and Santiago to the north. In the end we spent more time relaxing in the garden and terrace of the house which overlooks the bay - watching the fishing boats coming in and out and Herons on the rocks. The vegetable garden was a real bonus - being able to pick peppers, tomatoes, lemons and much more just when we needed them. It turned out that the family farm mussels, with which we were also kept supplied fresh on the day. A highlight of our week was spending a day on their fishing boat - getting a small rowing boat out into the bay at the crack of dawn, and then heading out to sea... Our biggest thanks is to MariCarmen who always made sure that we were ok, and told us so much about the island and Galicia that we would have never known otherwise. We would suggest that if you plan to go to Galicia that you stay here - it can't get much better than this! Many thanks again to MariCarmen and all her family. Tony and Wendy.

Cette maison est LA maison idéale pour passer d'excellentes vacances entre amis ou en famille. Les photos du site ne lui font pas honneur: elle est mieux en vrai! ;)

L'équipement est adapté pour 7 personnes, draps et serviettes fournis, électroménager...tout y est. La maison est TRES propre.

Elle est vraiment bien située: la plage est un super terrain de jeu pour les enfants, le quartier est très calme.

La propriétaire MariCarmen est adorable: logeant à proximité, elle est toujours prête à rendre service et ses tomates sont délicieuses!

Nous vous conseillons d'aller boire un verre au bar du musée: WIFI gratuite et apéro tapas pour 7 pour moins de 10€!

Nous espérons y revenir très vite...

Superbe séjour. Je souscris à tous les commentaires élogieux lus sur le site sur Arousa comme sur la location. Si je devais n'en retenir qu'un, ce serait l'accueil de Marie-Carmen et de Ramon. Ce sont vraiment des gens charmants.

D'ailleurs tous les iliens sont charmants. Allez-y les yeux fermés
