Beautiful location, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Having spent two weeks visiting every beach and every cliff in an 80 km radius around the house I can firmly say the following: Claudia´s and Victor´s house is located in the most beautiful site on the wildest stretch of land in the northern coast of Galicia. This is so because it has been built in a plot of land which is secluded and provides privacy, while being 200m away from a fantastic viewpoint overlooking the coastline with access to at least 3 virgin whitesand beaches. On day one, Victor gave us a thorough rundown of every beach, restaurant, village of worth in the region, which we followed to a tee, including google map directions in case we got lost. Claudia did everything in her hand to make us feel welcome and at home, making a special effort not to infringe in our privacy. The apartment itself is located underneath the house, next to the garage. It has been decorated with charm, and is fully equipped with every imaginary kitchen utensil and gadget. We were especially grateful to find a beach umbrella, which came in very handy as it was quite sunny. We have only nice thoughts to convey about our experience in Loiba.

Loved the apartment, its stunning setting, hosts.

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment" is the ground level of the "Glass House", and so it is that this house sits at the top of a mountain and we look in awe at the unobstructed vista of the green, green vegetation stretching to the next mountain top. To stay at the apartment in the "Glass House", also referred to as the "Hidden Secret on the Cliff", is like staying with friends. Claudia, who is fluent in English, Spanish, French and German and Victor a Spaniard prince of a fellow, welcomed us to share their lives in this little known Galician paradise, answering our countless questions, guiding us to local attractions and repeating several times the names of places that our brains are unable to retain. Their 6-year old bi-lingual (Spanish/English) son, Tristen captured our hearts immediately.

The apartment is modern elegance, carefully designed to make maximum use of space and very well equipped in my opinion. It is a perfect space for 2, resembling 2 average size hotel rooms with a sliding door separator. We were 3 in the apartment, our 23-year old son with us, sleeping on the comfortable sofa bed in the open concept living/dining space. A couple with 2 small children could inhabit the space, provided the living/sleeping area be kept tidy. An attached garage allowed us to store bulkier items out of sight, when not in use.

The kitchen, though compact includes all the necessities except an oven. We enjoyed essentially all of our meals in the apartment.

The south facing wall is all sliding glass doors to a private sitting area so that even while inside you are essentially outdoors always.

We loved the apartment, its stunning setting and especially our dear hosts, Claudia, Victor and young Tristen. We hope to return.

Heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

My stay in Loiba was pure relaxation from start to finish. I was made to feel right at home by the owners. The apartment is so comfortable, I didn't want to leave. They've thought of everything that you might need from homemade jam for breakfast to plenty of outlets and a bed that felt like sleeping on clouds. If you want to escape to one of the most beautiful, unspoiled ocean front spots in Spain, I highly recommend booking this property.

Peaceful Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful finding! We came across this place while looking for options on where to stay for our Pirtugal vacation. Ended up driving from Porto to northern Spain to enjoy this paradise. The pace is exactly how it is described. Extremely cost and clean. Owners are fantastic people. Friendly and accommodating. The views from the cliffs are breathtaking and we could not gave asked for better days to rest and disconnect from the world. Loved it!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome! I stayed here for a full, fabulous week. The apartment is wonderful, beautifully and tastefully decorated in whites and blues. I loved the small and efficient wood burner which was simple to use. The bathroom and shower were perfect, with thirsty towels, warm slippers, hot water, and great lighting. Huge floor to ceiling and wall-to-wall sliding glass doors lined the entire exterior wall, opening to incredible, green, lush views of the countryside. Claudia picked me up from the FEVE train station, late in the evening, and had wine, bread, her own homemade zucchini soup and fig jam waiting for me, along with a beautiful fire raging in the wood burner.(...which, by the way, was very efficient and easy to use.) Claudia and Victor are wonderful hosts: professional, well travelled, warm, helpful...simply, delightful. The Cliffs and the beaches are phenomenal...you must see to believe! I’m definitely going back.

Excellent place to stay in rural Galicia

  • 5 of 5

This guest house is the perfect place to stay in the very north of Galicia. If you're looking for a warm, cosy, stylish little apartment, this is the place!

The bed is five star, just the place to land after all day trekking along cliffs and beaches. The woodstove is perfect for this climate and keeps the whole place toasty warm. The kitchen has everything you can think of. And everything else is in tip top shape too.

Claudia and Victor, the owners are just waiting to welcome you with loads of insider information about the local area and cuisine. They're very attentive to every detail and made us feel so at home.

This is not just a great way to place to stay, but one you'll want to go back to. Wish we'd had time to take advantage of the bikes!

Location

From the Owner

We love the remoteness of this area and the spectacular, untouched beauty of the nature here, as well as the delicious, fresh, local seafood.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : La Coruña at 110 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Claveles at 400 Metres Nearest Ferry : Santander at 300 Kilometres Nearest Train : Feve, Loiba at 400 Metres Nearest Motorway : at 20 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : El Galeon at 600 Metres Nearest Beach : Fabega at 70 Metres Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The house is a 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach, Playa de Fabega, a 15 minute walk to Picon, another spectacular beach, and a 30-40 minute walk to Esteiro, a beach well-known to surfers but also perfect for families since the Esteiro river ends there, making it perfect for children to swim in since the water is calm and very shallow. All these locations can also be reached by bicycle, motorbike, or car.

Travel:

Airport distances:

La Coruña: 110 km

Santiago de Compostela: 130km

Oviedo: 200km

Although a car is useful to have here it is by no means essential. One can easily take a bus to Loiba from any of the airports as well as the Feve train, which also stops just 600 meters from the house(although only twice per day). There is a grocery store just 400 meters from the house that has everything you need. A car is necessary though to go to restaurants and other sights in the area.

Distances:

Ortigueira, where the world famous Celtic festival is held every year is 12 km away. O Barqueiro, a sleepy, picturesque harbour with lovely restaurants is 6km away. Viveiro, a larger town with shops and a nice old, historic part is 15km away. The Sor River offers beautiful trails and stone refuges at various locations to have BBQs.

Further Details:

The activities in the area endless, I could easily write a book! There are options for everyone ranging from hiking, fishing, horseback riding, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking, quad excursions, bird watching, or simply relaxing at one the dozens of beautiful beaches...Espasante beach, Celtigos, Sarridal, Carro, Fabega, Picon, Esteiro, Vilela, Vares, Caolín, Xilloi, Abrela...and many more!

Great restaurants in Loiba, Espasante, O Barqueiro, O Vicedo, Viveiro.
