“Wonderful house with amazing views”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Catro Faros really lived up to expectations and all the previous reviews. Beautiful modern house with lots of room for extended family to spread out and get some space when they needed it and space together to eat and chat when we were all together. Kitchen was a tad small for us as we had 5 keen cooks in our party but all the equipment was there to help us make some wonderful bbq and make the most of the food from the local market.
Pool is great - good size and with spectacular views out to the sea.
Casa Zulema opposite was a good restaurant - great seafood and good for when you are late back or too tired to cook.
Patricia was very helpful - thank you for helping when we managed to lock our selves out of the front door.

“Amazing House with Beautiful Views!”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I spent Easter Holidays with a group of friends in this amazing modern house. A bunch of different beaches near by, great restaurants and friendly locals to help us! The house is brand new, has wonderful decorations and outstanding views!

“One of the most perfect holidays!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The other reviews are spot on - this is a fantastic villa in a fantastic location! We do these kinds of holidays every year, and this is one of the best villa holidays that we've been on, if not the best.

The villa is fabulous - clean, modern, exactly as in the pictures; stunning views over the islands; and the location is fantastic - walking distance to beautiful white sandy beaches and to the town of Portonovo.

There is a small shop just across the road, and a lovely restaurant and bar beside the shop - so convenient.

Patricia and her husband were the perfect hosts - they left in some wine and food supplies for our first day, and they couldn't have been more helpful to us while we were there.

I couldn't recommend this highly enough - taking everything into account, it really was one of the best villas and locations that we've been to.

“Villa, Location and Owner could not be better”
Reviewed 4 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The Villa is perfectly located with stunning sea views and 5 minutes walk to a beautiful and quiet beach. The villa has an incredibly high spec for a holiday home, with Wifi, 3D TV, climate control and ipod docks in each bedroom, and music system for inside and outside.

The villa really could not be better, and is very spacious both inside and outside.

Sanxenxo is the perfect place to be located for sailing, beaches and of course food and wine. Everything is 15mins drive away.

Finally Patricia is the perfect owner/ host, she was very helpful with how to best use the villa, as well as the best local services and attractions. She even had some wine and tapas awaiting us on arrival. simply perfect

Thankyou Patricia!

“A fabulous Galician vacation villa”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Our family spent a wonderful two weeks at Catro Faros in July 2012. The house was as great as it looked on the website and the combination of the open plan living space, modern technology, spectacular views and refreshing pool made for a relaxing and very enjoyable two weeks. Having a great seafood restaurant and small shop just across the road was a bonus, as was the welcome package provided that included excellent wine and local produce. We felt perfectly comfortable sending our kids across the road for bread and ham in the morning and it all added to the feeling of really being immersed in the Galician culture. The kids enjoyed the 3-D TV and the selection of DVDs provided while the adults spent many evening sharing a glass wine on the terrace looking out to the twinkling lighthouses of the Rias Baixas (the Catro Faros which the house is named after).

Location of the house is excellent. You are 5 minutes drive to Portonovo and Sanxenxo towns and a short walk to a wonderful beach at Montalvo. Going North the Salnes Valley express road means that you can be in Santiago in 45 minutes and heading South Vigo in about the same time. During our stay we ate in some outstanding restaurants and also travelled out on ferries to both the Isla Ons and Isla Cies, both of which were wonderful full day trips with a great combination of hiking, fresh seafood lunches and time on the beach.

I can’t recommend Catro Faros highly enough. It is a great house in a wonderful location and Patricia is an attentive owner who speaks excellent English and went out of her way to make sure we had a great two weeks.
