You'll love spending a few days in this three-bedroom cottage located at the entrance to the iconic Granxa do Souto, a farm founded by my family in the nineteenth century. There are few places where you can enjoy the river, the sea and the mountains in minutes. If you want to visit the most remote corners of our region or if you fancy a walk at sunset to watch the deer grazing in the river meadows, we will explain you how to reach these places. If you also want to enjoy the beef, seafood, and fish from our land and sea, you are in the right place. And of course, if you're willing to ride through the meadows of the valley, at our equestrian centre they will show you the best routes accompanied by expert instructors. The maximum comfort and our beautiful and quiet surroundings will make your children enjoy the vacation of a lifetime. And besides, you're just minutes from the best beaches of Galicia. And all at incredible prices. We look forward to your visit !!

It's a very nice cottage, quite spacious for the 3 of us. Our little daughter particularly loved all the animals on the farm, cows, horses, donkeys, ducks and rabits and there is a little playground too. The area is very green and beautiful and there are nice beaches in short driving distance. Joaquin and his family gave us a warm welcome and we felt quite at home on the farm.
