To watch the sun as it sets on Galicia’s beautifully unspoilt southernmost coastline is something that few are likely to forget. As the sky turns pink beyond the rugged natural beauty of the shoreline it is almost impossible not to stop at one of the strategically placed viewpoints that adjoin the coast road as it follows the open ocean from A Guarda to Baiona, to admire the scene: a magical sky of rapidly changing colours as the sun dips into a seemingly endless expanse of ocean.
It is this idyllic backdrop that is enjoyed by Villa Caridad, a perfect viewpoint in itself and wonderfully situated to enjoy this stunning tract of coastline. Nestling against a lush screen of tall trees and mature shrubs just below the coast road, this beautifully presented home and its spacious grounds face directly onto the ocean, separated from the shoreline by only a few gently sloping fields of shrubs and grassland.
Conveniently passing through these fields, the famous Camino de Santiago provides a scenic footpath to Oia, a picturesque village in which charming streets lead the way to two restaurants, a small grocery shop, a bakery, cafes, and a sandy beach, all overlooked by a stunning 12th Century Royal Monastery. This is just 1.1km from the house whilst for more energetic guests, a cycle track follows the coast road southwards for 11km to the fishing town of A Guarda.
No doubt many guests will however wish to spend as much time as possible in the house itself since this maritime retreat has so much to offer: light-filled rooms that are smart and attractively furnished, a spacious sitting room with sea views, outdoor dining whilst listening to the waves and lush grounds offering both sea and hillside vistas.
