About the property

Self catering, sleeps 10, 4 beds 2 en-suite, luxury kitchen, great sea views.

A large villa on an enclosed, gated, private estate with private access to a secluded beach. The house has a private pool, a large fully equipped kitchen, lounge/dining room with terrace with amazing views to the Atlantic (80m away) and Cies islands. The terrace has an electrically-operated awning. There is a second lounge which can double as 5th bedroom, with high quality double bed/sofa and TV opening to small terrace with bbq and the pool. There is a full sized tabletennis table.The rest of the villa consists of 4 double bedrooms (2 with double beds, two with twin beds), 4 bathrooms of which two are en-suite and all of which have shower/toilet, 3 have bidets. There is a laundry with washing machine and a double garage with a full sized table tennis table. The house is equipped throughout with broadband Wi Fi internet access. Furniture and fittings are of high quality and mostly new in 2008. Towels, bed linen and parasols are provided. Our neighbour Fatima will welcome you and be available.

How to get there: The cheapest way to the villa is to fly to Santiago de Compostela (1hr from the house) or Oporto (1.5hrs from the house) (served by both Ryanair and Easyjet) and then hire a car. Alternatively you can fly to the same airports with several other airlines including Iberia and TAP. Best to ignore Vigo airport because you will almost certainly have to change flights at a Spanish airport and the pain is not worth the gain.

Driving is not impossible if you wanted to make a holiday of the journey too, it is around 800km and 8 hours in the saddle from San Sebastian) From the UK you could also consider the 24 hour sea crossing to either Bibao or Santander though beware, you would still have a six hour drive from there to Vigo.

About Ken and Fiona Constable

A standard family. parents 2 daughters. We lived in Vigo between 1991 and 2000 in Casa Tico (named after our dog in fact)

Ken and Fiona Constable purchased this house in 1992

Why Ken and Fiona Constable chose Pontevedra Province

We bought it as our family home when we worked in Vigo because it was right next to the sea and the beach with amazing views and because it is also a big, comfortable house which absorbs any number of kid's friends etc.

I suppose the weirdest thing about this is the fact that we went on holiday to Vigo in 1989 before there was ever an inkling that we might end up working there. We stayed at a B & B right next to Saianes Beach (which is our local beach), looked at Casa Tico and said to ourselves how nice it would be to live there.

It was a matter solely of chance and coincidence we ended up living in it 3 years later.

When we left in 2000, logically we should have sold it of course but none of us could bear to so we ended up becoming 'first time buyers' again with all that implies: big mortgage, small house and so on. Worth it though!

What makes this house unique

The sunset over the Cies Islands looking west to the Atlantic ocean and the uncanny feeling of peace that engulfs you when you step out onto the seaward facing terrace.

Perfectly relaxing home from home

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious, well equipped and a comfortable home from home with a beautiful view over to the Cies Islands. Great location for visiting this area of Spain, and we also had a day trip to Porto.The kids absolutely loved the pool. The owner, Ken, was very helpful when we had to extend our stay abroad after my son took ill and had to stay in hospital for a few days. I would definitely recommend this villa.

Fantastic property great location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tico was perfect for us, two families with 5 children (including 2 babies) between us. The house had everything in it we needed and the balcony has a lovely wide view of the ocean and islands, perfect for meals and watching the sunset with a glass of wine when the children were in bed.

It's a short walk across rocks to a very pretty sandy beach, which is very sheltered and has lots of natural shade. There's also the pool of course with our children loved splashing around in. A bit farther afield in the car and there are many beautiful beaches to explore along the coast. Santiago is an hour away and we also enjoyed visiting Baiona and Vigo.

Food in the region was great as was the wine and the owners accommodating and easy to deal with.

Would certainly recommend it.

House is in a great location, very spacious and well equipped. Feels like the beach at the bottom of the steps feels like your own private beach! Great base for exploring the area.

PT | Casa e localização excelente para uma familia passar férias. A casa encontra-se em perfeitas condições, bastante limpa, bem conservada, agradaveis zonas de lazer com praia privativa e numa zona tranquila. de Destacar amabilidade do dono Ken que várias vezes nos contactou para saber se estava tudo bem e preocupado para que todas as nossas vontades fossem satisfeitas bem como da pessoas que nos apoio no local.

Recomendo vivamente

EN | Home and great location for a family holidaying. The house is in perfect condition, very clean, well maintained, pleasant leisure area with private beach and a quiet area. Highlight of kindness owner Ken contacted us several times to see if all was well and worried that all our wishes were satisfied and the people we support on site.

We strongly recommend

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Tico very much. The owner, Ken, went out of his way to help us with any special requests we had.

I already know the area well, so that was not a surprise. I love Galicia very much, so anyone planning a trip there will not be disappointed. Only the weather can disappoint you... but that is how Galicia is (it rains a lot!). The house has a gorgeous view, and the location is very close to the city of Vigo.

To me, the attention and care from the owner was the best. I think anybody would love staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gloria for your kind words and I am happy you had a good time. One thing though. Galicia might seem wet to guys who live in sunny bits of the USA but from here (Newcastle, UK) it seems pretty dry!

One thing you must do here is eat and drink. Galicia has excellent white wines Albarino and Ribeiro and, all Spaniards agree, the best fish and seafood in Spain. Despite the buoyant local economy ( 8% growth in the past few years) prices remain reasonable. You are within easy reach of Vigo and Baiona with a huge choice of restaurants, there are also two within easy walking distance. The beach is 100m form the villa, fairly inaccessible to the public and has white sand. There is also Playa America beach, Panxon beach, Bao and Samil beach within 8 Km, Samil has many free attractions for children. Santiago de Compostela and its medieval pilgrim route is an hour's drive, Oporto (for port of course) 1.5hrs and Valença, a walled fortress town and its Spanish neighbour Tui on the river Mino, 30m away. The mountains plunge down to the sea in this area so there is plenty of chance to walk or bike and the views are fantastic. If you have never been to this part of Spain you will be pleasantly surprised.
