Life & Surf in Patos Beach, Spain

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rúa Praia Patos, Nigrán, Galicia 36340, Spain

The Space

In beautiful northwest Spain is the region of Galicia, home to a vast cultural richness and some of the Best, Most Beautiful Beaches in the World, one of which awaits you!
A sunny, ground floor, fully-furnished one-bedroom flat in a condo just 200 meters from surf and sand. This garden-view spot in Playa de Patos, Nigrán -- only 20 minutes from the city center of Vigo-- is a popular destination for young people, families and surfers alike. City bus transportation very accessible, supermarket, bars and nice eateries which offer great local dishes, within blocks. The town center of Panxón is just a 15 to 20 minute walk away. There you'll encounter more stretches of beautiful beaches and a sunny boardwalk with restaurants and shops.
A real treat when staying here is visiting Patos's popular Farmer's Market on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm (across the main street from the apt.), where you'll find the freshest produce, fish, hams, cheeses, breads, you name it! Also at the market grounds overlooking the beach are plant, herbs, clothes and accessories vendors....Definitely a must do.
At Patos Beach enjoy the awe-inspiring view of the Cíes Islands (a protected natural park, one of its beaches having received the distinction of best beach in the world) in the distance, while you dream away on the sand, walk along the shore picking sea glass, go for a swim, take some surfing lessons (children and adults), or straightaway jump into the waves with your surfboard, skim board, boogie board, etc. (board and suit rentals available at the beach). With fine, white sands, a coastline of captivating beauty and moderate waves, the protected Playa de Patos is shaped like an oyster shell and flanked by intricate stone formations. The local area is characterized by summer homes, fishermen's cottages, upscale home enclaves and sightseeing spots of unimaginable beauty and interest. Just minutes away you'll find Monteferro, where you'll watch a world-class sunset, the beaches of Paxón and Playa América, an ancient monastery, a magnificient, centuries-old castle in Baiona. And if you feel like driving out of the country for a day, Portugal is just twenty minutes away! Galicia is also the land of Spain's premier quality white wine, the Albariño, grown in the lower inlets of the region: Las Rias Baixas.
Whether for a family vacation, a writer's getaway, a romantic escape or a fun surfing experience, Playa de Patos and its surroundings are unforgettable places to which you'll want to return again and again....

  • Really nice apartment, clean, well equipped, It has even got a secure parking for your car in a garage. Dee was a perfect host, always available and really nice person, she even organised an umbrella for the sun for us when we asked If she had one. Her husband runs a really nice Pizzeria in Baiona that is worth a visit as well.
    I can just recommend the place, really close to the beach and right between Baiona and Vigo.
    P.S. If no Wifi would be a problem for you, don't worry right around the corner there are lots of restaurants that offer free wifi access, so if you need to check something it's less than a minute away.

  • Lovely appartment, with all you need...nice and quiet, lovely bedroom! What a lovely (email hidden)is is hidden Spain...beautiful sandy beach, great waves!...a coastline of islands and rocky outcrops I never got tired of gazing at, great restaurants, and cafes (we enjoyed El Bodeguito very much) all a few metres from the appartment, amazing locally-owned minisupermarket where you can buy pretty much everything if you wish to self-cater...If you seek somewhere to chill out and replenish, eat out cheaply and well, sun yourself on the beach, surf, read books...Nigran is the perfect spot :)...and if you crave a change of scene, it's very close to many other amazing beaches, towns and cities..a delightful area to explore!! Not a place to come for shopping, but to rediscover what's important....life!

  • The location of the flat is superb. Only one minute to the beach (very nice and not to crowded). Restaurants, bars, cafés, surf shop, surf school and grocery store are nearby and in walking distance and defenelty sufficient to have relaxed days there.
    Dee's flat is clean and has everything you need for a beach holiday.
    A harbour (Baiona) with ferries departing to beautiful islands can be reached with a 20min bus-trip (public).
    We would love to come again. Dee is a very caring and friendly person!
    Thanks Dee!

  • Dee's place is fantastic and I would highly recommend staying there especially if you are looking for a beach holiday - it was less than a 5 minute stroll to the water!

    Dee was lovely and helpful throughout our stay, even coming to drop off an iron so we could look presentable at the wedding we were attending.

  • We considered not leaving a review for fear of too many others wanting a piece of the little haven that is Nígran. then we realised how selfish that would be so here goes!

    Nígran is such a beautiful, peaceful little place with gorgeous beaches, friendly locals amd great places to eat and drink. There is enough to do should you get bored of lazing on the golden sand or swimming in the clear waters of the beach which is just minutes from the apartment. It really is exactly as Dee describes it!

    The apartment was clean, cosy and quiet. It's well equipped and so thoughtfully organised that we really did feel at home there. And of course Dee! What a wonderful, sweet host! So accommodating and thoughtful ensuring we had the most relaxing stay possible. Which we did, thanks Dee!

    Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Next time!

  • Dees place is exactly how she described, and even more. It is charming flat, with all equipment you need, exactly as you have at your home. While she was arranging it, Dee was thinking about every detail! Very ,very clean and well organized.
    The position is just perfect and great base for all wonderful places around Patos beach. Baiona, Vigo, Pontevedra and of course Portugal is just there, waiting for you!

    Dee and Clemente are great hosts, and not just a hosts. They are very friendly and always ready to help and give advise you need.
    I would love to host them back one day, in my city

    Hope to see you again guys!

  • The ground-floor flat is quiet, overlooking a communal garden and very clean. It is directly opposite Patos beach, where my kids joined a surf-course for a week and had a great time in the water and lots of fun with the Spanish teachers. Supermarket is 200m near and a very good restaurant (los Druidos) 50m. We also did some excursions inland and discovered the most beautiful waterfalls 40 min by car. (ask the tourist information). Because everything is so close our kids 10/14 were very independent. The flat is spacious for 2 people, it gets a bit tight for 4. However, we have been out most of the time and barely noticed it. The owners speak English, live in Patos and available for any help. They own a great Pizza place called 'Piccola Italia' in Baiona.

  • Bien situado, tranquilo y muy agradable. Dee fue muy atenta con nosotras, incluso nos llevó algún juguetito para nuestro bebé. Quizás volveremos!

  • L'appartement de Dee, privé et calme, est d'une propreté exemplaire. Il n'a pas de terrasse mais donne accès en deux minutes à une plage d'une grande beauté bordée de restaurants excellents. De plus, des ballades en voiture fantastiques peuvent être faites à partir de là. Nous avons fait à Patos un séjour à la fois reposant et stimulant. Dee, une hôte chaleureuse et ouverte, y est pour quelque chose.

  • Dee y Clemente (su esposo) han sido muy amables y nos han facilitado tanto el acomodarnos como la estancia en la vivienda. Muchas gracias a los dos.

    La casa tiene una ubicación excepcional. A 200 metros de la Playa de Patos (playa maravillosa tanto para la práctica del surf como para descansar y nadar un rato; cerca hay varias calas para los que quieran disfrutar del snorkel sin olas). La zona dispone de restaurantes y cafeterías a menos de 50 metros y hay supermercados a unos 100 metros.

    La vivienda es muy tranquila (sin ruidos para descansar, da directamente a un jardín interior), muy limpia y ordenada. Perfectamente equipada (incluso toallas de playa, lavadora y secadora, menaje de cocina nuevo,…). El mobiliario es actual. Las estancias (salón, dormitorio, baño y cocina) son amplias. El salón y el dormitorio tienen ventiladores en el techo.

    Dispone de plaza de garaje.

    Cuatro personas pueden alojarse perfectamente (dos ocupando el salón).

About
De una de nuestras visitantes: / From one of our guests: "El apartamento es acogedor y sus propietarios un encanto, siempre preocupados por que estubiesemos a gusto y disfrutaramos durante nuestra estancia en su casa. Gente maravillosa y con un apartamento decorado con mucho gusto, funcional, bien equipado en menaje de cocina y en ropa de hogar y muy próximo a la playa. Sin duda una buena experiencia que nos gustaria repetir. Unos anfitriones insuperables.." (Carmen - Jun 11, 2012) (Read the rest of our reviews!) A NOTE FROM DEE :) I have been living in Spain since 2010 and wouldn't change it for anything! Life here is beautiful, relaxing and energizing -- especially on the coast! I like the serenity in people and the care that goes into treating a customer. I enjoy the cleanliness in every public space and the region's pride in sharing its beauty. And what I love best is that here we never run out of reasons to party, and why not? Breathtaking landscapes, cultural richness and superb gastronomy, plus world renowned wines produced in our Rías Baixas, are just some of the reasons to celebrate!
