The house is just 10/15 minutes’ walk from a range of superb beaches: you can opt for picturesque “O Santo” which includes an inland you can walk to in low tide!, a small cove called “La Cobiña” frequented by locals only, or the large “Lapamán”, one of the most popular beaches in the area. If you prefer to drive, the choice of beaches is endless, and you should certainly pay a visit to unspoiled Cíes and Ons islands before you leave. This area has long been Spaniards’ best kept secret: if you want to sample what real Spain is all about, taste the magnificent local food and experience beautiful landscapes, look no further, this is the place to visit!

Additional amenities & feature info
Casa de Freire is decorated in a modern country style: the communal areas have exposed stone work which provides a cosy atmosphere. All the main rooms in the house have a magnificent view of the Bay of Pontevedra with Ons islands in the horizon (the twin room is the only one which offers views of the garden but not the sea). The sunsets are really breath-taking! The main bedroom is adjacent to a large dressing room, where one of the single sofa beds is located (ideal for a child). There is also another larger single sofa bed in the master bedroom. We also have a portable cot available.
