About this property

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. Excursions : Other interesting spots to visit (within less than one-hour drive) are, driving East, Estaca de Bares Cape, Ortigueira, O Barqueiro and Viveiro and, driving West, the Natural Park Fragas do Eume, Pontedeume or St. Felipe casttle in Ferrol. The cities of A Coruña or Santiago de Compostela, are excellent options for a day excursion (at 75 and 90 min-drive). Santiago is a must, its medieval centre is UNESCO´s world heritage, with the impressive cathedral (tomb of the appostle St. James) has been pilgrimage destination for centuries. A Coruña, financial centre of Galicia and home of the biggest Spanish fashion firm, Zara, is a lively nice city with a wide range of cultural, gastronomic and shopping possibilities, as well as a very nice old medieval quarter and marina. Inland, Lugo (100 min. drive) is an ancient city surrounded by an impressive complete Roman wall (of some 2 Km). Its charming old town includes a XII century cathedral, a baroque town hall and lovely squares and alleys. How to get to: Flights to the airports of Santiago de Compostela (SCQ) or La Coruna (LCG) are often available. The 1.15 hour or 1.30 hour drive from La Coruña or Santiago airports is a pleasure in itself.

    a little slice of heaven

    We spent 3 days at this beautiful home... and of course, hated to leave. The house is absolutely amazing - stocked with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and memorable stay, beautifully furnished, with breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding areas. The village/hamlet that the house is in is great for a quiet and relaxing getaway. The area around the house is great for hiking, photography, or just to take a walk within nature. Oh, and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we saw wild horses! The town of Cedeira is a short drive from the house. There, you can find restaurants, bars, shopping and a grocery store (supermarket) with a wide selection of food items to purchase if you wish to cook at home (which we did for several meals). You won't want to leave!

      Galician Idyll

      There were 6 of us (3 couples) from the UK. We spent 2 weeks in this very lovely house. The location was superb with views over the sea. The house was well appointed with all that you could possibly need for a great holiday. Everything worked as it ought to and provided a fabulous base from which we could explore the immediate and wider locality of Northern Spain. The local walking is excellent through eucalyptus forests; wider afield there are coastal pathways overlooking magnificent scenery. The local town provides everything would need with good supermarkets, fresh food shops and of course plenty of fresh fish of all descriptions. We visited one or two of the restaurants and found them very good indeed. The local tourism office is extremely helpful. We should definitely come back another time.

      5/5 Excellent

        Wonderful fortnight

        We really enjoyed our fortnight stay at Lugar Pequeno, a wonderful house high in the hills above Cedeira. The views are magnificent and the afternoons and early evenings get lots of sunshine; all very quiet and peaceful. The property is well appointed and everything works! We brought our bikes with us and cycled every day - the roads are quiet and there are some great, though very hilly, rides in this part of Galicia. Stage 4 of the 2016 Vuelta came through Cedeira and finished above San Andres de Teixido, a sanctuary which is well worth a visit. Cedeira itself is a nice town, with lots of good cafes and restaurants. A Coruna is an hour or so away in the car and well worth a visit; we stayed there one night and then took the train to Santiago (30 minutes by train from A Coruna) for a short visit, an arrangement that worked well for us. So, five stars from us.

        4/5 Good

          Lugar Pequeno: beautiful house, stunning views

          The house is beautifully presented and very comfortable. We found that everything we needed for our stay was to hand. The views from the terrace across the garden to the ocean are magnificent. The location is peaceful but relatively accessible (car required, winding uphill road through forest). There are many beautiful beaches within a short drive, and the attractive town of Cedeira offers numerous cafes, bars and restaurants as well as shops, banks etc. Recommended.

            Lovely views from a fine building

            Grand three level very modern house. Well equipped. Lovely views down the valley to the sea below (house is about 600' up above) and wide ranging coastal vista to headlands in the distance.
