This is a small cozy apartment in Pontevedra. As the owner actually leaves here (when you don't) it has everything you need to make you feel at home; as a spaniard, that is. Fina, the owner, will make you feel at ease.
Although this apartment building FACES a busy street the apartment itself is in the back facing a green area.
The kitchen is well equipped including a washing machine. It is modern and up to date with all appliances in excellent
working order. The apartment was very comfortable for us (4 adults) and we felt at home there. There is plenty of comfortable seating and we found the beds to be very comfortable also. One bedroom has a king size bed and the other two twin size beds. The table in the dining area sat 4 adults very easily. There are no English TV channels which may or may not be important. With the American Election we would have liked at least the BBC or Sky News. I don't know how many English speaking people rent this apartment so that has to be a consideration for the owners.
We had a car and although there was parking along the street and across the greenbelt from the apartment there did not seem to be any available spaces. There was parking in back of the apartment but nothing on the street seemed to be available there either and we didn't want to park in the lot in back of the apartment as it was very dark at night. There is a very nice public garage with security about a 5 minute walk from the apartment and we parked there for 10 euros a day as we felt the car was safe and secure there.
Pontevedra is a very nice city with a very comfortable feel. I think it would a very nice city to live in Spain. It was very safe walking around the shopping was excellent. There were many historical sights to see and the Cathedral was very nice.
Eva and her husband were very easy to deal with and always answered emails quickly. We had to change our dates and Eva was very accommodating. We would highly recommend this apartment if staying in Pontevedra.
One note..the picture on the internet is from the BACK of the apartment building not the front giving you the idea that the apartment is in a very
quiet location. Although the apartment itself is VERY quiet the street it is on is not. It is fairly busy. It can be somewhat stressful driving in and out of the city at busy times. My husband and friends were walking the Camino so I had to drive in and out of the city several times which I found to be stressful at certain times of the day. However, this IS a very nice apartment in a safe area.
