Carqueixa 6 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms | Beach: 150m | WiFi | Small Party Rate | Sleeps 10
Enticing sea views spread out ahead of us like a picture postcard as we wandered through spacious lawned gardens, sat on a pretty stone pillared balcony and looked out through floor-to-ceiling windows in the smart sitting room of this beautifully presented home.
An enviable position in the coastal neighbourhood of Montalvo, just 150m above the sandy shore, provides Carqueixa with this most picturesque of maritime vistas. To the east, the sheltered waters of the bay ripple against a sweeping arc of fine white sands; to the south a shimmering expanse of deep blue glistens invitingly as the Ría de Pontevedra stretches out across the fjord-like inlet to meet the undulating headland of Cabo de Udra.
It is an idyllic scene and can be appreciated not only from the pool and garden but also from inside the house. Smooth floors of polished wood and a fresh décor of light tones and neutral fabrics give a calm and stylish look to the spacious interior where even the principal bedroom has been designed to soak up the vista through the glass doors of its Juliet balcony. Upstairs, generously proportioned rooms sit beneath sloping beamed ceilings and light floods through velux windows.
Whilst the dune backed beach and small shop of Montalvo are just 150m below the house, also close to hand are some equally scenic beaches. Stroll along coastal lanes for just 1km to discover the naturist beach of Bascuas with its adjacent café or continue along a coastal path for a further kilometre to discover Caribbean-white sands and a beachfront restaurant at Pragueira.
