Client Reviews for Islas del Río Miño


We had a lovely two weeks here. This was our very first time visiting Galicia and what a lovely part of Spain it turned out to be. Perfect tranquillity! We made good use of the pool and the River Minho & had great fun Kayaking! Lovely house and in a perfect spot with great views. Thank you very much. (05/08/17)

We’ve had a fabulous holiday staying in your beautiful villa. We have all loved the pool and the views are wonderful. It has been difficult to persuade the children to leave the villa! We did manage a few excursions – ferry trip across to Caminha, trips to local beaches in A Guarda, walks along the river and another trip to Portugal, this time driving to Vilanova de Cerveira just across the bridge. This is our first time holidaying in this region and we definitely hope to return. All three generations have loved our time here. Thank you so much for the very warm welcome. (29/07/17)

Marta & Javier, thank you so much for a wonderful welcome. The house is perfect and we didn’t want to close the blinds in our room so we could always see the lovely view. The pool was so helpful for cooling off and we did many interesting things including; the Celtic village and peaks of A Guarda, the watermills of Folón y Picón, kayaking on the Minho, visiting the fort at Tui and its opposite number across the river in Valença. We also went further afield to Santiago and the Cies Islands and up the beautiful coast road to Baiona and also tried the spa (Talaso Atlántico). We had an amazing holiday and enjoyed the fresh seafood and other delights such as the Pimientos de Padrón and the cheeses. (15/07/2017)

Marta and Javier – thank you so much for your warm welcome. Having travelled with Vintage Travel before this is the 4th property we have stayed in and it is by far the best – it is exceptional and we feel very privileged to have stayed here. We used the pool several times a day and the views are exceptional; it is very relaxing to admire the views. We enjoyed our visit to Santa Trega. If you like fresh seafood, the best we have tasted in years is at the restaurant at Area Grande beach. The seafood in A Guarda is also excellent. O Muiño beach on the River Miño is worth a visit. You could visit the ‘Quinta de Couselo’ vineyard near O Rosal, lovely wine and it can be purchased in the small village shop in O Rosal. (17/06/2017)

We have really enjoyed staying in this lovely, comfortable house. The views are stunning and we also loved the views over the Minho from the Muiños do Folón y Picón above O Rosal and from Monte Santa Trega. We alternated our days between Spain and Portugal – very much enjoyed Caminha and its beaches. Thank you Marta and Javier for the welcome pack and your superbly equipped house. (07/06/2017)

Although no rep the owners were always available, this was useful when the boiler broke down and was repaired swiftly. Very unspoilt and friendly area of Spain, heated pool was great even in early season .
The Mole Family


We've had a lovely holiday with the family - first time with the baby abroad! A really comfortable and homely property meant that we could relax from the start. The area is beautiful and we all really enjoyed the mill walk. We’d also recommend the restaurant ‘Casda Chupa Ovos’ in A Guarda – superb value and wonderful food. The pool was just right for us all to enjoy floating about, morning swims and water polo matches. All in all, a brilliant holiday. Thank you! (20/05/2017)
The Mole Family


A beautiful, stylish house with amazing views. We really enjoyed the lovely heated pool and outdoor space, but also enjoyed the comforts of the house. San Miguel de Tabagón is situated in a beautiful area and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the footpaths around the Rio Miño, walking around the coast to A Guarda, and going up to the Castro de Santa Tecla; as well as exploring further afield in the car (Santiago, Baiona, Valença and Caminha). We loved the views over to Portugal – if you take the crossing signposted Vila Nova de Cerveira and drive towards Caminha, you get an amazing view of the house from Seixas. Marta and Javier were kind and helpful without being intrusive – we knew where they were when we needed them. Highly recommended – and even better than the pictures on the website! (03/09/2016)

Two weeks of big fun, we leave Islas del Río Miño a happy family with lots of memories. O Muiño beach for a long lunch whilst watching the kids rock pooling was one of the many highlights that also included messing around in the Tamuxe River and surfing in Moledo. We found the villa and Galicia itself to be very accommodating and are already hatching plans for a return. Muchas gracias. (13/08/2016).

We had a great week here. It is a lovely house, beautifully designed and with every convenience. With three kids we were happy to spend most of the time in the lovely pool, seeking some relief from the heat. We had great fun in it. Baiona is a lovely town and A Guarda looks like it could be really interesting although we only drove through it. All in all, a lovely week in a beautiful house in a fascinating part of Spain.
