Guestbook comments from the manager

Guest nº 1:The house was very comfortable and well furnished. The garden in particular had everything we needed in it. It was possible to sit in the sun at any time of the day. We had a wonderful week and enjoyed visiting the local beaches very much. They were stunning with white sand and turquoise sea."

Guest nº 2: The downstairs appartment we stayed in was spacious and clean and ideal for young children as it led straight out on to the large and safe garden (with its sunloungers and hammocks). It is perfectly located for Limens beach, a two minute walk away, which is completely unspoilt and has very few foreign tourists. There are lots of beaches a short drive away which are also lovely with views out to the islands.

Summer 2016, top apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at O Pombal for a week at the end of August this summer. It was a lovely place, close to a great beach and in an interesting and peaceful area. Lovely views & scenery. The wider area also looked beautiful from what we saw and though we didn’t get to see much of it (too busy relaxing!) we’d certainly love to come back and explore more. The upstairs apartment we were in was well equipped and comfortable for the three of us (there are two bedrooms, one double, one twin). We sat out on the balcony terrace every day looking at the lovely views out toward the sea and used the large and very green garden for relaxing & sunbathing. Antonia, the owner, was charming and easy going and added to the holiday – thanks for the delicious figs! We would definitely recommend the upstairs for a smaller party or the whole place for a larger group. We didn’t see the inside of the downstairs but the people there had obviously had a great time too & it looks ideal for a family with younger kids (there’s a freestanding pool and barbeque in the garden). It really is a 1 - 2 minute stroll to the beach. The garden is a lovely space to sit and enjoy the sunshine and peace and quiet.

Super family holiday base in Galicia

  • 5 of 5

The white sandy beach of Limens is a 3 minute walk away from the gates of the Villa and is ideal for small kids with its calm sea. Wind surfing and paddle surfing is available at the far end of the beach.

The house is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything you would need plus all you would like to bring to the beach, e.g. parasols, beach towels and mats, goggles, snorkels, buckets and spades, balls and beach tennis.

The garden is super to relax in for the whole family. I was amazed how much time and enjoyment the kids spent and had from the very large paddling pool. Very safe for our four year old while big enough and deep enough for our 11 year old and 7 year old to play sharks under the water....., plus an adult if the parents did not stay in the Hammocks ! Barbeque area is excellent, also nice veranda area with table and chairs for breakfast in the morning sun, The garden is large enough to play football and racket sports.

Only on the last two days did I remember the fish and bread vans appear with a beep of the horn to announce their morning arrival in the Summer on the country beach road near the Villa.

Other beaches close by are also worth visiting for day trips and evening walks.

Kids loved the holiday there.

Super base to see all the wonderful beaches around the Cangas area. Close to the ferry in Cangas for day trips to Vigo or Cies Islands. Super playground in Cangas. Some good restaurants there too.

Owners could not have been more pleasant to deal with, really helpful and welcoming.

I recommend for all, particularly a family or two families together if they want to take both the top villa as well as the ground floor villa part, another family arrived to the top villa for the last number of days of our holiday and they were very good company when the garden was shared. Yet there is enough space for privacy if you wanted to do your own thing on the loungers and hammocks. It was a welcome and pleasant distraction for the kids to make new friends as it was for the grown ups.

From the Owner

The house is in a natural environment easily accessed by the blue- flagged beach in Limens (Cangas). The house was bought to get away at the weekends. My children were brought up there and birthday parties, family and friends gatherings, lots of barbecues took place in the garden throughout the years. We also enjoyed siestas under the fig tress, trekking to the nearest sandy beaches and villages, stunning sunsets and landscapes, fiestas around, the bustling village of Cangas, just 3km away from the house, the tapas and the well renowned local cuisine: fresh fish and seafood, meat stock, roasted ham, roast beef...in traditional "tabernas" in narrow alleyways and now we hope you could enjoy all that as well.

From the Owner

I see it not as a house but as a " home" where you can find peace, quietness and enjoy also fiestas with family or friends at the barbacue area. Thanks to the fenced garden, your children will be safe and you can relax much better while they are splashing in the above ground pool standing on a corner of the garden. When you don´t feel like staying at home by the beach, you can take the car to the nearest villages where you can mixed with Galician people who are very hospitable and friendly and who will talk to you as they have known your for long. You will enjoy fresh fish and meat or "tapas" at local bars and restaurants while the children will be playing outside at the square...
