Galicia, also known as the Green Spain, is an unspoilt treasure waiting to be discovered. Galicia is an ideal location for lovers of nature, with coastal areas of extreme beauty, and mountains with marvellous forests and rivers.
The soft weather of this Celtic region, and the excellent quality of food and wine along with the many fiestas all through the year, (mainly during summer months), makes it a perfect destination for families or romantic trips, or just to enjoy peace, nature and good living.
Galicia has more than a thousand km of coastline with marvellous estuaries, classified in Rías Altas and Rías Baixas, depending if they are in the north or in the west coast.
The Rías Baixas are the preferred areas for holidaying, as there are warmer microclimates as you move South, but they are also more developed and crowded except for the upper part, the Ría de Muros-Noia and the coast to Finisterre with some of the best unpolluted beaches of Galicia.
The Rías Baixas are ideal and save to practice sailing in summer, and in the Rías Altas you can see spectacular cliffs, and beautiful beaches with pine forests that reach to the border of the sea.
Also the interior part of Galicia is a paradise with its mountains, forests and rivers to enjoy.
The well known mountain ranges of Os Ancares, O courel, Queixa, San Mamede, O Xurés, and O Invernadeiro, conform a natural spaces of incredible beauty, which extends by the East and down to the border with Portugal.
The River Miño and its affluent the Sil, form canons of extraordinary beauty in the area known as Ribeira Sacra.
About Santiago de Compostela
Santiago, a famous historical city, renowned for its cathedral of St. James, end of the 'Camino de Santiago', is lively and welcoming with its exquisite seafood restaurants and 'tapas' bars. Santiago de Compostela is a hive of cultural activities, (mainly from June to September) ranging from concerts, theatre, musical events, art exhibitions, open air cinema, etc., not to mention the great atmosphere and street life, well into the night, and local festivals all around.
Santiago de Compostela was named a Cultural Capital of Europe in recent years, and usually the hotels and accommodation facilities are fully booked in summer.
It is recommended to hire a car and make short excursions to the fishing ports of La Corunna, Vigo, and nearby Portugal, all connected by the autopista del Atlántico.
Why this site is different
I have been living in Galicia for many years now, and I really think it has many great things to make you enjoy your holidays:
- It is not too hot in summer time
- It has a beautiful scenery both in the inner and coastal areas
- The food and the wine are superb and cheap
- The people make you fill very welcome
- It is safe and enjoyable till late hours
Most of these properties are owned by local people who sometimes even don't speak English at all so this site provides the language interface service for the rental.
Please see terms under our Quality Service Promise.
