About the property

Bungalow in O Rosal, Southern Galicia, Spain - Sublime Position with Sandy Ocean Beaches 10 Mins Drive and Safe Clean River Bathing 15 mins walk.

Attractive rustic style bungalow recently built from local stone, in secure extensive grounds, with beautiful vineyards and mountain views. Sublime, peaceful position on the edge of the well known village of O Rosal in the heart of the Albarino wine producing area. Lovely pine clad sandy beaches 10 minutes drive, with a ferry nearby to cross to Portugal and more beaches and attractive villages. It is like having a holiday in two counties at once with the fishing port of la Guardia with numerous tapas bars and restaurants on one side and the contrasting Portuguese style of Caminha 15 minutes away on the ferry. Outside activities abound in the area with walking in breathtaking mountain scenery inland and kayaking, sailing, surfing and white water rafting easy to organise. July and August are full of local Fiestas including the Rosal Wine Fair in mid July and the week long Monte Tecla Fiesta in early August. A perfect base for activity or just peace in lovely surroundings.

Wonderful cottage in Galicia, close to Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We took our first holiday in Galicia, in last May. Traveling from Brussels by car, it is a long way! We took a week to visit the North coast of Spain, to finally land in O Rosal for 10 days in that wonderful cottage. Very well equipped, everything one can need is there! Very nice view, just in the middle of the vineyards. Our host Robin also gave us excellent recommendations on places to visit in both Galicia and Portugal. A really great place to recommend. We will certainly visit that place again in the future

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We've just had our first holiday in Galicia and will definitely be returning. We loved the property with it's wonderful views. It was both relaxing holiday and with plenty to do. Our teenage children particularly liked the river swimming. Our host Robin provided great recommendations for activities and places to visit and eat. The food was great especially the fish and tapas restaurants. Our children loved the cottage and the garden. The cottage was very well equipped and the layout suited our family. We found Galacia to be full of friendly people, great value for money, lovely scenery and with lots of interesting places to visit. We would love to visit again and would definitely recommend this cottage and part of Spain.
