Unspoiled Getaway, Superb Ocean Views House in a Natural Area
Historic vacation home in Cedeira
At the head of an untouched valley some 200m above sea, 'Lugar pequeno' is in a place of privilege in the small hamlet of Golmar. The house, fully equipped, is summer home to its owners. It fusions tradition and family memories with a modern touch. All rooms and garden enjoy impressive ocean views over a green valley, forest and some 80Km of virgin Atlantic coast. The house’s unique location make the clean views over the unspoiled valley a natural extension of the garden. It receives sunlight from dawn to sunset. Located within a Natural area part of the EU network "Natura 2000", you will enjoy complete peacefulness, being only at 4 Km distance to the fishing town of Cedeira, with shops, all services, lovely beach and seaport, and very good tapas restaurants. Nearby, you will enjoy some of the best sandy virgin beaches in Europe and outstanding hiking paths from the house through the forest, cliffs, the lighthouse.... Other activities, like surfing, horse riding or kayak are available in the area. Beaches: You can choose among beaches with extensive dunes and wonderful views (Vilarube), calm water (A Magdalena) or high waves (Pantin, Baleo) , birdwatching or kite-surfing(Frouxeira), etc. Sonreiro is the hidden cove beach closer to the house, near to 'Castillo de La Concepción' (ancient fort protecting Cedeira´s harbor). End of August or September, “Pantin classic” is a well-known qualifying series of the world surfing championship. Last weekend of June local ranchers gather hundreds of wild horses living in freedom in Capelada mountains (12Km away), to haircut and dworming horses, branding foals born in springtime and trading some of them. A small fair and lively lunch accompanies these activities.
