Great home for families
Great place in the countryside. Begoña is great to work with and she is very responsive. Perfect getaway place for a family with lots of room. Not too far from shops and restaurants in Monterroso.
WiFi was not very good.
Overall we really liked our stay!
Pleasant and peaceful location in rural Galicia.
The owner Begoña was very helpful in welcoming us and later in dealing with our requests. Beds were very comfortable; good bathroom; useful laundry room. The heating was very welcome. We can recommend visits to Sta Eulalia near Lugo, Vilar de Donas and the Froiz supermarket in Monterroso.
Two relaxing weeks in the heart of Galicia
We spent ahugely enjoyable and relaxing 2.5 weeks here in July/August 2013 as part of a 7 month tour of Spain. This was the largest and best equipped particularly the kitchen!) of all of the places we stayed (20+). The apartment is owned by a local family and Begona, who manages the place, could not have been more welcoming or helpful even going so far as to have a present waiting for our baby daughter in her cot when we arrived. Again of all the places we rented none of the owners were friendlier or kinder than Begona.
The apartment is in a tiny hamlet amid rolling hills and farmland about 5km north of Monterroso, and is as peaceful a place as you will find. The neighbours were all incredibly welcoming to us as well even and made us feel right at home. Monterroso itself has a couple of supermarkets, plenty of bars/cafés with a weekly market and other shops you could need. In addition, from July - September there is a beautiful swimming pool/river swimming complex that is completely free, with a bar/restaurant and plenty of shade. Days could easily be passed there!
The apartment is the lower floor of a traditional farmhouse, complete with metre thick walls that keep the place cool in summer. The apartment is very well located for visiting inland Galicia, just over 30 minutes from Lugo with its stunning city walls, and an hour from Santiago and Ourense.
This is rural holidaying at its best and most relaxing, run by locals, and far from the crowds that descend on coastal Galicia in the summer. If you are interested in exploring inland Galicia or just want a break away from it all Begona's apartment comes highly recommended.
Une vieille maison en pierre rénovée avec goût, de beaux volumes dans un environnement campagne. Begoña nous a contacté très rapidement par Whatsapp (application indispensable en Espagne pour communiquer) et la remise des clefs s'est déroulée à l'heure prévue sans problèmes. Nous avons profité avec les enfants des jeux mis à disposition (table de ping pong, jeux de société...). La voiture peut se garer dans le grand jardin.
Nous avons visité les lieux touristiques dans un périmètre d'une heure de voiture environ (c'est le tarif pour aller quelque part car c'est à la campagne). Pour ceux qui veulent aller à la plage il faut prévoir bien davantage, il faut le savoir et les routes sont dans un état moyen.
Lits impeccables, salle de bains OK, cuisine fonctionnelle.
Si on doit retourner dans cette région je relouerai volontiers cette maison.
The house is located in the district of Ulloa. In this region we find the iconic 'Castle Pambre' (Located in Palas de Rei) near the Camino de Santiago. Also in Monterroso, municipality that owns the house, there is a recreational area 'A Peneda', in which we find an area swim in the river itself, an adult pool and a children's pool; and a large recreation area where we can sunbathe or just relax under the magnificent trees.
