Vintage Travel

Client Reviews for La Casiña del Picón

La Casiña del Picón is everything we had hoped for and more! What an amazing place. We’ve had fabulous weather so daily dips in the pool and many excursions. We visited the mills, the Celtic settlement, Tui, Valença, Islas Cies from Baiona and a return trip to Caminha, which we visited last year and really liked.

As we’ve come to expect from Vintage – a lovely villa and the garden is absolutely outstanding. We found our favourite spots and truly relaxed. Would recommend a trip to Guimerães in Portugal, a must-do there is the cable car and UNESCO World Heritage old town. Take the ferry from A Guarda to Caminha and drive down to Viana along the coast road – beautiful beaches and villages. On the return drive take the road along the River Minho (via Vila Nova de Cerveira) instead of the ferry – beautiful!

From the minute that Chiña and José showed us around this beautiful villa, we felt immediately at home and at peace. It is a very tranquil place and has so many lovely places to enjoy every part of the day. From breakfast on the wooden bench under the orange tree to lunch in the area by the barbecue, a sundowner G&T in the upper area with fresh lemon in a long glass with views over to Portugal – and finally a late-night game of scrabble in the seated sofa area by the deck. The pool is fantastic and for most of the week the water temperature was perfect. This was our first trip to Galicia and we will certainly be back. It reminds us of some parts of the Scottish Highlands but with fantastic weather. We visited a couple of beaches and would recommend the sheltered bay at Area Grande outside A Guarda. It has an excellent restaurant which we used both at lunch and dinner. We had a lovely swim and walk at Playa O Muiño. Also had a great day out and lunch in Santiago. I could go on forever… Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Dear Chiña. We had a great time in your beautiful house. We especially liked the gardens and the pool, although we didn’t manage to use the pool until the last day, we had so much to see. We visited Valença on Sunday which was very nice. We also went to Santiago and Vigo. It was a very nice holiday.

Dear Chiña. The week was too short, we have had a great time! The gardens are a credit to you, absolutely beautiful! I think this has been our favourite villa and place in our many years of villa holidays in Spain – we don’t want to go home! We visited Santiago and embraced St James’s relics, it’s one of our new favourite cities. We visited the Celtic settlement on Monte Santa Tecla and the beach on the estuary looking over to Portugal – simply beautiful. The kids have had a ball in the pool, a lovely temperature – much warmer then I was preparing myself for! We hope to return to Galicia one day – there’s so much left of it for us to explore.

A great holiday. Thank you for your help and excellent customer service. The Villa was everything we expected. We met the owner on the first day and she was extremely helpful. Would thoroughly recommend Vintage and this property. Thank you.

We had such an amazing time here – from the moment we arrived until the time we left. We were greeted with such a warm welcome from our hosts and were totally in awe of the glorious garden and rock pools – many days spent just relaxing in the garden. When we did venture out, Santiago proved an interesting trip. Some of the Atlantic beaches were well worth a visit – sandy, quiet and completely intoxicating. Monte Santa Trega was fascinating – couldn’t believe that the Celtic ruins were left unfenced for everyone to explore. Lovely trip!

We’ve had a wonderfully relaxing time here at your beautiful casa. The weather was perfect – allowing plenty of time to laze in the gardens and swim in your pools. We ventured out occasionally to walk over the hills and to eat – notably in A Guarda and Restaurante Juan in O Rosal. With our best wishes and thanks.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at La Casiña del Picón. The gardens are beautiful and the location is ideal for exploring all that Galicia has to offer. We would recommend this villa to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week at your beautiful house. The children had a fantastic time in the pool and with all the garden facilities. Lovely walks and days trips to Tui & A Guarda.
