About the property

Holiday Home in O Rosal, Pontevedra, Southern Galicia, Spain - Sublime Rural position, with Distant Mountain Views

Casa Julia is a beautiful rustic style bungalow, in a peaceful small rural development of similar styled properties, in the heart of the Rosal wine producing area. It has a compact well maintained, secure garden, with a single depth private pool. Its large shady terrace has views of the garden, pool, vineyards and distant hills, with good quality terrace furniture, BBQ and loungers being available to guests. The pretty, large village of O Rosal is close by, and has all the shopping facilities required for a self catering family. Lovely estuary and Atlantic sandy beaches are 10 minutes drive, as is the working fishing port of La Guardia, where numerous sea food restaurants abound. The lofty Monte Tecla is visible from Casa Julia, which has fantastic views down the Portuguese and Galician coasts, and is steeped in Celtic and Roman history. Indeed, Portugal is only 15 minutes drive away across the Rio Minho, which can be crossed by ferry or bridge. A whole new country to explore.

Lovely property and facilities

  • 4 of 5

The property is a home away from home with everything you need. The pool was great to keep our young children occupied, we did wine tasting and pipped over to Portugal for a day and visited the local area. We would keep this property in mind for future holidays and Robin was very helpful.

Beautiful property in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Casa Julia; what a wonderful house so comfortable and well equipped.The location is quiet but not isolated with some excellent restaurants 5 minutes away and lots of local vineyards if you like to go wine tasting. We took the opportunity to visit local towns; driving over the mountains to Baiona was a highlight. A Guarda in the evening is a beautiful harbour with great fish restaurants. Another day we managed to cycle around Ponte de Lima. Our sons did not join us this time but would have loved the many opportunities to surf, kayak and cycle. Driving from Porto airport was easy; as Casa Julia is just over the border in Spain. We would thoroughly recommend staying at this lovely home for a holiday
