About the property

Villa in Cangas, Galicia, Spain - Beautiful Views Of Islands, Quiet Location, Short Walk To Unspoilt Beaches

Modern and spacious 5-bedroom villa with private pool and garden in quiet village location only 5 minutes walk from a beautiful unspoilt beach (350m as the crow flies). There are amazing views of the sea and the Cies islands due to the elevated position - you can watch the sunset from the garden. The area is a great way to discover "Green Spain" with lots of activities both within walking distance (beach, mountain biking, canoeing, stand-up paddle, windsurf lessons), and further afield if you bring a car (sight seeing, sailing, golf, pony trekking, zip-wires and many others). Three small family-run bar/restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk and a minimarket with basic supplies and a butcher. Great for a large family, or two families who want to holiday together, the house is contemporary, finished to a high standard, and very well equipped with a 9x5m L-shaped lit swimming pool, a games room (table tennis) and indoor and outdoor barbecues.

About Paul Cairns

Paul and Nieves met in Vigo over 20 years ago but live in London. They have always holidayed in the Cangas area with children and family as it provides the perfect family holiday destination with beautiful beaches, lots to do, and great food.

Why Paul Cairns chose Ria de Pontevedra

The area is beautiful and unspoilt with no mass tourism, but without being remote or far from amenities.

superb house with stunning views and area

  • 5 of 5

we (a family of 6) stayed in this house for two weeks with friends of ours (a family of 5) and we had an absolutely wonderful time.

the first thing we noticed was the stunning views from the house and then the house itself did not disappoint. it was clean and very well equipped. we could find fault with nothing.

the house has a pool and then the sea is a short walk down the hill - the uphill walk was a bit more testing - particularly for small children. however there is ample car parking space beside the beach is the car is taken. the beach itself was stunning with many coves dotted around. the water was clean and had only small waves - for younger children. we had use of canoes and bicycles also.

there were two beautiful walks around the coast which i did daily. the best time to go is the morning time as the heat builds during the day.

the temperature was perfect - up to 32C on our stay with a breeze.

Vigo is a nearby city best accessed by ferry - only €2.30 each way! and they go every half hour. it is well worth seeing for its shopping, bars, restaurants and beauty.

we also went to the island of Cies which was another trip well worth taking. afterwards we watched the lighthouse from the house at night - with a great sense of accomplishment, having climbed up to it while there! the beaches there are also many and stunning.

all in all we found the house, area, climate and owner of the property exceeded our expectations and we plan to return!

From the Owner

The area is beautiful and unspoilt with no mass tourism, but without being remote or far from amenities.

Activity and Interests


500m of unspoilt white-sand blue-flag beach within 5 minute walk (350m as crow flies, NB steep walk back up to property - though our 75 year old has no problems!). Large number of other beaches 10-15 minutes in car including naturist if that's your thing (one near house is clothed).


Nearest airport is Vigo 30 mins drive (mainly internal Spanish flights but occasionally has direct to London)

Santiago De Compostela (about 1.5 hours motorway drive) or Porto (2 hours motorway drive) or La Coruna (2 hours).

Car hire recommended though you could use public transport (buses to Santiago/Vigo, boats to Vigo)


2 small shops and 2 bar/restaurants within 5-10 minutes walk.

Cangas 3km (fishing village, amazing daily fish and vegetable market, restaurants, supermarkets, shops, cinema, boats to islands and to Vigo)

Santiago 95km (beautiful historic pilgrimage city, cathedral)

Cies Islands national park 12km (boat trip from Cangas - idyllic)

Portugal (visit border towns like Valenca at 60km or mountain areas like O Geres)

Further Details:

Cangas has boat trips/hire, sailing and windsurf lessons.

There is a great high-ropes/zip-wire adventure course "Aventuras Rias Baixas" at 10km who also do equestrian, paintball, and other activities.

A number of good nearyby restaurants: "Casa Simon" - one of the most well known in Galicia - located between the villa and Cangas.
