Guestbook comments from the owner

Albert, Bristol, UK - Thank you for the use of villa Salgueiros for the past week. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the villa was tremendous. The garden was lovely and we watered the plants every day. The pool was idyllic and to sit BBQing each night with a glass of wine very relaxing.

We also managed to get to your restaurant and found the food excellent. We had time to spend a day in Santiago and another day went to Noia and then round the coast. Thank you for your recommendations for these trips. All in all a lovely break and one we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for your patience and help.

Jennifer, Arlington, UK - Hello Gil, Just returned from our vacation. We loved your house. Thank you so very much for making the transaction happen so easily. We enjoyed the pool often as well. Upon leaving Villa Salguieros, we drove to Braga and then onto Lisbon. We were lost with the language but managed just fine and enjoyed the final few days of our vacation. Thanks again.

amasing trip

  • 4 of 5

There were 7 persons in the Finnish team. Three of us were Disabled and the rest supported and assistenttina us. We took part to camino by wheelchairs and a bike. The camino was amasing.

We lived in the villa. It was really perfect for us. We managed quite well and the villa was almost accessible. The location was very good for us as we had our own cars.

The property was clean and the garden was wonderful even as early as May.

The onnea Mr Gil Fernandes was really helpfull. He even came to take us when we were lost late in the evening. We needed his advices quite many times. Thank you so much!

I have already recommended this property.

We had kunch on the camino. So we spent evenings in the villa. It was a good place to relax.

hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks here with our 3 children (6, 9,11). The house is lovely and well equipped, and the pool, trampoline, pool table and massive garden meant there was always something to occupy the time when we weren't out enjoying nearby beaches and towns. Gil, the owner, is very helpful and responsive. Blissful holiday

Beautiful villa in rural Galicia

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful relaxing week in your lovely villa. Our teenage boys particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and the pool table. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and made good use of your splendid BBQ. Thank you for all your help and advice with regards to where to visit and where to eat out.

Owner's Response: Dear Suzie&Chris, Thank you for your superb rating review. It was a pleasure to have you with your great boys staying at my villa and I look forward to seeing you again in years to come (William and James will speak soon fluent Spanish) and to share a marvellous meal as we had, and this time it will be my turn !. May be next year I can offer a wood fire oven beside the solid stone barbecue that I built this year and I'm happy that you enjoyed. Good luck and please come back, Gil

A home away from home (plus pool!)

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week in this spacious and comfortable house, in a quiet neighbourhood in a lovely part of Spain. It lived up to our expectations and the kids (and we) really enjoyed the pool, trampoline, pool table, bbq and plenty of spots to lounge about. The owner Gil was very helpful and hospitable and gave some great tips for nice beaches half an hour's drive away past Noia. We would be happy to go again, and have recommended it to friends.

Lovely family villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in August with our three boys and my wife's parents. The villa is a very relaxing and homely place to stay. We all loved the big swimming pool and the games that were in the house; the boys spent a lot of time on the pool table and the trampoline. It was a nice area to be in and the beach, which was an hour away, was beautiful. We would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone and the owner, Gil, was extremely friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, It was great to have you and your family spending holidays in my villa. I'm glad you enjoyed the location, large garden and pool, as well as the different games available. In regard to travelling to beaches, there is now (just opened) a new road which surrounds the town of Noia, and brings you to the fabulous beaches at the other side (Boa, Hornanda -As Gaviotas-, Portosin, A Guieira, etc.) in just over 30 min. drive, avoiding the crossing of Noia with the heavy traffic in peak hours in summer. I look forward to seeing you again in Galicia and don't forget I do special rates for previous customers. Gil

Explore Galicia!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days with family (teenage kids) and thoroughly enjoyed the villa with its pool, gardens and BBQ.

If you have not been to Galicia yet do go and explore; the area has beautiful scenery from mountains to coastline, numerous coves and beaches , fabulous food and wine, and a fascinating history, woven into the landscape.

It is more difficult to access from the UK although there are three airports within an hour's drive of the villa, the most obvious being Santiago de Compostela, which providesa very modern welcome to the area.

You will need a car with the advantage of having all of Galicia's towns and villages within about an hour's drive ( Lugo, the furthest but worth a visit is 1,5 hrs but this will be reduced with the construction of a new motorway)

On the (slightly) less positive side, don't expect much from the nearest town in terms of restaurants or sight-seeing ( although there is a very good supermarket) and local dogs bark all night!!

Owner's Response: Dear Tony, It was a pleasure to have you and your family spending holidays at Villa Salgueiros. I'm glad that you enjoyed the pool, large garden with fruit trees, orchard and BBQ, and I wonder about the trampolin I installed this summer. For next summer I'm considering to install a solid stone BBQ with traditional wood oven, as everybody really enjoyed BBQing and having meals outside. As you say, Villa Salgueiros is a great base to explore Galicia, as most places of interest are at less than 1h drive or little more, including North of Portugal. In regard to nearest town of Milladoiro, where you can find a few restaurants/bars, supermarkets and little shops, a large sports complex and the public municipal pool, I agree it has little to offer in terms of sight-seeing, but luckily Santiago is just 10 min away and this certainly has a lot to offer to the visitor, who can spend many days to see it all. And what can I say about dogs in the area barking at night?. I think is one of the things about living in the rural, and so much unpredictable as the weather itself !
