The windows frame the garden and we love how light floods the space. You wake up with a sense of peace and a smile on your face every morning, especially when looking forward to a fun day at the beach, strolling around town or just staying in.

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 a 2-minute walk 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 and multicultural 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....

Dee was welcoming and attentive to our needs, doing her best to make the stay comfortable. The flat is nice with, has all we needed and the location is great, 1 minute from the beach and a restaurant. Only thing is that the flat has only a small heater. It is probably great for summer time, but in our case, this early week of may was a bit cold. We didn't freeze but a bit warmer would have felt better.

Dee’s ground floor flat is fantastic, very clean and light, equipped with everything you might need, including beach towels, parasol and beach toys. The building is very safe, there is a communal garden and lots of families seem to be there for holidays. It’s only a 3 minute-walk to Patos beach, which is not over-crowded, with several surf schools for all levels and ages. There is a groceries market just around the corner with very helpful staff. On weekends they have roast chicken and ribs available if you fancy having a meal at home, but you will need to order in advance. Restaurants around the area quite good and the staff is friendly and always making an effort to connect. The ice-cream parlour is a point to the kids, who were very independent in such a safe area. If you have a chance, drive up 20 minutes to Vigo Harbour and take the ferry to one of the Islands, it’s a great experience, a beautiful part of Spain. The flat is also located within a short stroll from Panxon Beach, which is busier than Patos but has a long promenade with lots of restaurants alongside it. Dee was an amazing host, ever so caring and friendly, she was there to greet us on arrival and gave us a delicious bottle of wine, some fresh fruit and cakes for the kids, which was a lovely touch. I would recommend Dee’s flat 100%, and will definitely come back for more!

Absolutely loved Patos beach. A lovely family friendly area that felt very safe at night. Our apartment was exactly as advertised. Dee has thought of everything down to a beach umbrella! We were able to travel here for 10 days from Ireland with just hand luggage because of the very handy washer/dryer and all towels were provided. Dee helped us find bike hire for the week so we were able to visit other local beaches and villages. A trip out to the beautiful Cies Islands is a must. Dee has been an absolute lady to deal with from start to finish. There was lovely treats waiting when we arrived and she was always available if we had a question. I will definitely be back!

Dee was the perfect host. We loved it here, it had everything we wanted. Beach, surfing, great food and wine. The staff at the local shop and tourist office were exceptionally helpful to us and even helped us to print boarding passes in one of their homes! Although there was a language barrier everyone was so patient and nice. Dee was easygoing and generously allowed us to stay a couple of hours extra on our last day as our flight wasn't until that evening. The local buses were great and everything was easily accessible. We recommend it here, hopefully we will be back some time.

Very well located appartment just a few meters from Playa Patos. Located at the ground floor of a nice residence, the apartment is very calm with a direct view to a garden. Dee's welcome was cordial: she left us a nice bottle of wine in the fridge and was always available for any issue or information we might need. Galicia is a must region to visit and we definitely enjoyed the 10 days we stayed in Dee's apartment.

We had lovely time at Dee's great apartment. It had everything we needed and it was right by the most gorgeous beach. I'd heartily recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable beach holiday in a beautiful part of Spain.

Thank you for a fantastic stay in your beatiful appartment. Dee is the perfect host: We arrived to a spotless clean appartment with a fridge with a bottle of wine and some fruit and bread. Later the same day Dee returned with some homemade Chocolate-chrunch just to top up the great welcoming feeling. Furthermore my 10 year old son just mentioned that he would love to surf with a boogie board and before we knew it Dee had borrowed her sons board and my son had the greatest time on the beatiful Beach. If you are planning a trip to Spain where you want to avoid too many foreign tourist - then go to Patos Beach. The Beach is beatiful, the waves are fantastic and the atmosphere is just perfectly relaxed. Nice taparias around the corner (with free wifi). And with Dee as your host to guide you and promptly reply whenevere you have a question - it could not be more perfect. Thank you Dee (& Clemente)!

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)

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!
