Cottage Apartment in Tomiño, Pontevedra - Peaceful With Lovely Views, Close To River Beaches And Sea
Relax in the welcoming atmosphere of Moonstone Cottage, a traditional Galician house on a wooded hillside close to the sleepy hamlet of Luneda on the southern tip of Galicia. The small Spanish town of Tomiño is five minutes by car and the border with Portugal is only fifteen minutes away. We are an excellent base for exploring the area on foot, by mountain/road bike or on horse back in nearby Bayona or Tui where there are excellent riding stables. There is the possibility of kayaking on the river Mino, sailing in sheltered waters off the Galician coastline and visiting off shore islands with beautiful sandy beaches or surfing off the Atlantic coast. For less active moments relax by our salt system 10 metre pool in secluded gardens. A holiday with interests for all tastes. For further information visit our website.

A Galician Adventure
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
We can provide mountain bikes free of charge for anyone wishing to explore the quiet lanes and tracks. There is a wide range of activities in the area including kayaking on the river Miño, sailing, horse riding, walking, cycling.
Sandy river beaches on the Miño are only 15 minutes away and good surfing beaches on the Atlantic coast both in Portugal and Spain are around thirty minutes away.
The seaside town of Bayona with its variety of beaches and beautiful old quarter is less than 30 minutes.
The old port of La Guardia has quiet sandy river beaches, a beautiful walk along the rugged coastline and amazing views from Monte Tecla, an ancient Celtic settlement.
Santiago de Compostela 90 minutes Easyjet, Ryanair
Portuguese airport - Oporto 60 minutes Easyjet, TAP
Spanish airports - Vigo 25 minutes by car.
Ferry - Santander - seven hours - mostly motorway.
A five minute walk takes you to the local village with a small supermarket and bar. Tomiño is five minutes by car and has two supermarkets, bars, restaurants, cafes, banks and plenty of shops.
Santiago de Compostela is 90 minutes by car. Fortress towns of Tui in Spain and Valença in Portugal, re-constructed celtic village of Monte Tecla in La Guardia all within half and hour drive. From the bustling seaside town of Bayona (30 minutes) catch a ferry to the Isla Cies.
Known as the Rias Baixas, the region enjoys a micro-climate with temperatures well into the 30s during the summer months. Known for its Albariño and O Rosal, quality white wines, it is possible to visit various vineyards and enjoy tasting the different wines. Many cultural events take place throughout the year including a very popular wine fair in July. Eating out is much cheaper than other parts of Spain and there are excellent local family owned restaurants who take great pride in their cuisine, an area also famous for its seafood dishes. Several of the villages have their own gastronomic fiestas.
This is always something to do at any time of the year. In spring and autumn, the temperatures are perfect for walking in the hills and mountains, or by the sea or river. The cooler temperatures at these times of year are also better for enjoying cycling and riding in this very beautiful and natural area. Summer months are great for enjoying being by the sea and taking full advantage of water sports, lazing by the pool, splashing about in nearby waterfalls and enjoying al fresco meals. Summer evenings are usually cool enough to enjoy a relaxed stroll to the village or on surrounding woodland tracks. Historic places of interest such as the towns of Tui and Valenca, the celtic site of Monte Tecla with incredible views of the Atlantic ocean and River Mino mouth, are great to visit any time of year.
