As we stood by the poolside of Eido Vello and looked out across the wonderful panoramic vista of gently undulating countryside and lush woodland that stretched out ahead of us, we felt that we were in the very heart of rural Galicia. In the distance however, the blue sea shimmered invitingly on the horizon and reminded us that we were in fact only 13km from the Caribbean-like sandy beaches of the region’s stunning southernmost coastline.
Nestling against the western foot of the hill of O Galiñeiro in the typical rural hamlet of Vilas, this charming stone cottage provides an idyllic retreat for couples or small groups. It is situated in an area where time seems to have stood still and a traditional, unhurried way of life has been delightfully maintained. Narrow country lanes wind their way past traditional smallholdings and country homes amidst a picturesque patchwork of pastures and copses in an elevated position that provides the must captivating of views towards the ocean.
A scenic drive of just 10 minutes reveals the pretty local town of Gondomar where all amenities and some good local restaurants can be found, whilst just a short distance further on are the sweeping golden sands of Playa America.
The house itself exudes the welcoming ambience of a typical country cottage. Hand painted tiles and units create charm in the pretty kitchen; tastefully coordinated fabrics sit alongside smart wood furnishings in the living areas; the attractive shower room offers an unusual combination of two separate showers in the same room. Outside, the swimming pool and its surrounding lawns lie on an upper level, from where steps lead down to more lawns and a charming stone flagged terrace.
