About Maria Moreno Lamas
Originally from The South East of England - we moved to Galicia in 2005 in search of an affordable renovation project - Maria had family here and at the time there were plenty of opportunities - great old stone houses that had fallen in to disrepair. The original idea was to renovate and sell and return to the UK - but I fell in love with the Ría de Muros y Noia - a spectacular and unique coastal estuary lined with incredible white-sandy beaches and we are still here! We now spend our time renovating properties for other people.
Maria Moreno Lamas purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Maria Moreno Lamas chose Outes
Casa Piloto was left unused for 30 years after a house fire - our dog actually found the property - it was completely overgrown but still, despite the neglect, its stonewalls protected its structure. It had wonderful potential and enormous spaces to work with combined with beautiful valley views and easy access to the Ría. It became a real labour of love!
What makes this Villa unique
Location, location, location! The Rìa de Muros y Noia remains one of the few undeveloped regions in Spain - its original, authentic and life goes on here as it has for generations. The proximity of Casa Piloto to the beaches and the stunning forest and mountain scenery set it apart and give it a unique serenity, it's a place to breath deeply and enjoy nature at its best, a place to unwind and get back in tune with yourself.

Feels Like a Castle!
Rupert, the owner, escorted us to the house and showed us around. He also helped us find a hike up the mountain right from the door.
It’s a stunning villa. Beautifully renovated. So much space with the open ceiling over the main living area. Very comfortable. It’s on the back edge of town so it’s very private and quiet. Spectacular views from all the rooms! The nearby stream was running high so it sounded like a waterfall with the bedroom balcony door open at night.
We ate breakfast on the balcony every morning. Dinner at nearby Pepe’s every night and enjoyed the pool table.
Highly scenic, peaceful and private with plenty of nature and a small village.
Exploring the beaches and towns further north is a must! Jaw dropping scenery and sunsets all along the coast.
Thank you Lisa & Rick - it was a real pleasure having you stay and we're delighted you had such a fab time - safe onward travels! Best R&M
A wonderful surprise!
This was our first time to holiday as a family in Northern Spain - and what a wonderful surprise it was for us. We're a family of 6 with 4 teenagers - the scenery in Galicia was so different from what we are used to in Spain - big green forests and the most and I mean the most amazing beaches we have ever seen! Such white sands - incredible - even if the water was a little chilly - the sunshine was gorgeous hovering around 28 to 32 degrees and it always easy to sleep at night. The house was an absolute pleasure and the warm salt water swimming pool family favourite. A great holiday with great hosts. We will be back!
Thank you Sandra - we're glad you had so much fun - you and your lovely family are welcome back anytime!

A relaxing, refreshing revitalising holiday!
We have been to the South of Spain many times with our family and this was our first time to the North of Spain and in Galicia - and what a pleasant surprise it was.
Firstly I must say what a wonderful holiday house the owners have made at Casa Piloto - it is enormous but cozy with breath-taking views. You can see the passion the owners have put into the renovation -we loved staying here - it felt like our own home from home. Just lovely. We even used the pool in June and were blessed with great weather.
But it is the beaches in Galicia that amazed me the most - such white sands, so empty, such a beautiful coastline. It was undoubtedly the most relaxing, refreshing revitalising holiday that I can remember. We will be back!
Thank you John,
That is a lovely review and much appreciated - we hope to see you again!
A stunning retreat and the perfect place to relax
a stunning house in a stunning location. It really is the perfect retreat set in a small village with fantastic views. The locals are friendly with local shops providing really good local produce. The Sandy beaches are a short drive away and you are guaranteed plenty of space to pitch up and enjoy the sand, sea and surf....highly recommended.
Thank you Mr Sanchez - it was a pleasure having you and your beautiful family come stay with us - we're glad it ticked all the boxes - a bit like the FA Cup final we chatted about! Happy Holidays! R&M
This renovated Grand old stone Villa sits in the forests beside the amazing Ria de Muros and Noia. Just 3kms from the pristine, white sandy beaches of the Ria. The two small towns of Noia and Muros are nearby for evening strolls, meals and fiestas. The historic city of Santiago de Compostela is just a 30minute drive away. Mountain hiking, swimming, horse riding, go-karting, tennis and golfing activities are all within an easy drive from the villa.
But, its own private pool, BBQ area, private boules area and stunning views interrupted only by the sounds of the river and sightings of eagles may well persuade you to stay at the villa for the duration of your stay!
