About Allyson Morris
We fell in love with the area at first sight. After spending 15 years in the Canary Islands we were in need of some greenery and seasonal beauty. We have not looked back, after 2 years of hard work our project was completed in May 2009. The winter of 2010 was spent making further improvements to the property - a staircase has been installed to open up the 2nd floor of the barn and access to the 25m2 sunroof terrace. The converted barn property now contains 3 one bedroom suites. After a fantastic summer; the best weather in 20 years and some super guests we have the pleasure to announce further improvements to the property. We can now provide accommodation for up to 17 guests when required as we no longer live 'on site' but are close-by if needed
Allyson Morris purchased this Farmhouse in 2007
Why Allyson Morris chose Outes
We travelled the length and breadth of Galicia and settled on the Ria Muros y Noia for its stunning unspoilt beauty, total lack of development and no mass tourism. The property's central location and coastal position between the Rias Baixas and the Costa de Morte make it an ideal spot for guests to explore from. The amazing historical pilgrim's city of Santiago de Compostela is a 35 minute drive from the property. (45kms to the airport) We love the area for the wide selection of local seafood - the Ria Muros y Noia is famous for supplying the sweetest clams and oysters in the region; the local wines and endless sweeping white sand beaches devoid of crowds! The locals are friendly and the pace of life here can be described is very calm, relatively crime free and 'laid back'!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The property is superbly located above the maritime walk along the Ria, a right turn will take you to the fishing village of O'Freixo; roughly a 20 minute walk where you can enjoy the local seafood bars and spectacular views of the Ria. A left turn will take you to the local beach at La Brona in under 10 minutes. The beach is a safe haven for swimming, it is rarely crowded. Guests love picnicking here on the grass in the shade of the pines. There is a children's play area, RedCross life-guard service in summer, showers, pedalo hire, local bars/restaurants and free parking. Our central location gives guests the opportunity to travel north to the coast of A Coruna, south to the border of Portugal, west to Finisterre (World's end) or east to Santiago & inland following the famous 'Camino'.

A Little Gem In A Stunning Area
One never knows what to expect when the owners live on site so in the past I have always steered clear of these properties but after my visit here I have completely changed my mind. My welcome was beyond the call of duty with everything done to make my stay enjoyable. As the days went on I was introduced to parts of the local area that I would never have found on my own plus being introduced to the owners many friends and being taken to local fiestas. The accommodation was a 1 bedroom very spacious apartment very clean plus it had all that one wanted for a enjoyable holiday, outside there was a lovely area to sunbath with fantastic views to the water plus a great BBQ. Other than going to get supplies one could manage quiet well without a car as restaurant's, bars, local shop and beach are all within walking distance. The area as a whole is quiet stunning with so many beaches you are able to always find one to suit you and swim in the crystal clear waters.
I would seriously recommend this property to all my friends' and family a great place where you can have the best of both worlds quiet to meditate or involvement in all the local activities.
Well done Allyson & Warren a little gem in a stunning area
