Really good holiday in lovely area with many interesting places to visit. Could have done with an extra week. Extremely nice, comfortable, well -equipped house.

It was a great holiday - a lovely place to stay. Thank you.
The Rowe Family

We very much enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful part of Spain. The comfortable, modern villa is well placed to explore the area and we enjoyed fabulous seafood, beautiful beaches and a glass or two of the local white wine while watching the sunsets from the balcony. The villa is nicely furnished and well equipped with things like an electronic juicer and decent coffee machine, together with lots of fridge space which is always useful. The pool is lovely with a shaded terrace and a little seating area. We loved this area, there is so much to do and see, and it was a very relaxing holiday. Many thanks.
The Hodgson Family

The best villa rental company we have used. The villa was very high spec, very modern and well equipped. We appreciated the small touches such as some food supplied, assorted equipment, including plenty of towels, and well stocked kitchen. We also liked the privacy and not being expected to leave a deposit. A lovely holiday. We arranged car rental through our airline but would consider doing so through Vintage next time.

A fabulous house with captivating views and skies, and so much to explore in this region. Stunning vistas from Castelo do Castro in Vigo, and Monte Santa Trega (Tecla) in A Guarda. A huge variety of beaches - our favourites included O Muiño (A Guarda), Panxon (one of a number of beaches off the PO-325 to Vigo), Islas Cies (boat from Baiona, 10euro pp at Estación Maritima, straightforward, on the day purchase and good coffee whilst you wait for the boat). If you have children, the beaches on the west side of Vigo are very well set up with free play pools set into the promenade. A short walk down the road from the villa is Sal de Mar - a short distance past this is a concrete road which leads to a local beach where the sunsets are even more stunning than those from the villa. Meals that stand out for us include the stunning seafood as Casa Henriqueta in Oia (head straight up the stairs signposted to the terrace) and the huge range of Tapas at Petiscos do Cardeal (Rua do Franco, Santiago de Compostela). Thank you so much to Panchi and her family for their warm welcome - we can’t wait for a return visit.

We loved being in this beautiful, elegant modern villa. Sunset watching from the balcony was a particular joy. We would recommend a visit to A Guarda to roam around a characterful fishing village and enjoy a local dish of lobster rice on the sea front. A pilgrim pathway runs along the coast and we followed it to Oia (about 3 miles) to see an ancient monastery rising imposingly above the harbour. Tapas café next to it was good and gave us the energy for the walk home! Walk through the back streets of Baiona, opposite the fortress and marina, to find quaint old bars and cafes. Carrefour is easy to find, park at and use. Galicia has been a relaxing and beautiful place to explore. Our thanks to Panchi and her children for their translation and for making us so welcome.

Many thanks to Pancho and Panchi and their lovely family for the generous welcome when we arrived, hot and tired after a long drive. Despite the damp weather we have had a wonderful time in their fabulous house. It is possible to watch a glorious Atlantic sunset from the upstairs balcony and not hear a single man-made sound. A bottle of good local wine adds to the pleasure. We had some splendid walks, along the basic roads to Oia, up and down and around Viladesuso and along too prom from the south end of Baiona to the north end of Nigran and back. A day trip to Santiago de Compostela is well worth the early start.

Just fabulous

We had a fantastic week in this lovely house. Great location and so well equipped. When we could drag ourselves away, things we enjoyed most were: the port at A Guarda, Islas de Cies (busy but still worth it), Promenade at Baiona (x 2 meals at La Boqueria), walking from Mougas to the falls and As Pozas for a swim, exploring the rock pools across the road from the house. Would love to return. Thank you to Pancho and Panchi! P.s. As previously mentioned, Caminha on the ferry is a good trip - it’s a nice little town.
Alison, Bernie, Tom and Lucy

So peaceful and with blackout blind in main bedroom we slept like babes.Took ferry to Caminha (Portugal) cost: car and driver = 3E passengers 1E each. Great beach at Moledo just south Caminha on local road. Lovely house, lovely area. Enjoy!
