About this property

A Delightfully Bright & Airy Place To Stay. Situated In A Beautiful River Valley

Romantic cottage in Ortigueira with fitness center
Originally built as a Tai Chi studio, the space is light and airy, built using local chestnut, it has recently been converted into a self contained cottage. The living room has a wood-burning stove and heats up the space incredibly quickly. The toilet and shower are stocked with soft towels, toiletries and other bits and bobs. Hand-made steps take you up to the cosy bed which is up on a small mezzanine in the apex of the roof and has a nest-like feel, where there is a shelf with reading lamp, books and of course some fairy lights :-). The kitchen is fully equipped for a simple breakfast or for a gourmet meal & I've left a few of my favorite cook books for you to enjoy. There is a dining area, plus the patio has a table and four chairs, where you can eat under the shade of the fig tree. A BBQ is also there for your use. There are many beautiful beaches within a 5 minute drive from us, amazing cliff walks & the most northerly point of Spain is a 15 minute drive away. Plus much, much more... • Guest Access The cottage is in our garden, with it's own patio, BBQ, and parking. You will also have access to the whole garden, the outdoor kitchen and other communal areas. We are planting an orchard this year and we've also planted willow, which we hope to harvest and try making some baskets. • Interaction with Guests We are here and able to advise guests on places to eat, walk, visit, etc. We like to be here to greet guests, and are happy to spend time with you or give you the space and privacy to enjoy your stay. • The Neighbourhood A truly magical place, full of wonderful walks, crazily beautiful scenery, generous people, the best seafood, beaches which are similar to those in Cornwall but less populated and the freshest air you could want. • Getting Around There's a bus stop about 700m down the road, the FEVE train station is a 35 minute walk, about 4 kilometres away. We also have 2 mountain bikes & 2 fold up bikes available to use. • Other Things to Note • The main bed is up on a mezzanine with steps going up to it - please have a good look at the photos to ensure you don't mind using them. • The cottage also has a second double bed (sofa bed) in the living room and is also very comfortable and easy to use. • A travel cot is available on request • Use of a washing machine is available • Logs are provided for the fire • The renowned and very popular, family run pizza bar, down the road also makes gluten free pizzas (yay!)

    Great retreat in a wonderful part of Spain

    We wanted peace and quiet and found it at Maddy's 'yoga retreat'. Small and compact , Maddy's house had everything we needed (for a couple) from barbeque to books, boogie boards to bikes. You need to be agile for bed arrangement but great fun. Loved it and would go back.

    5/5 Excellent

      Little piece of paradise in the valley!

      I would STRONGLY recommend Maddie's little cottage to stay in if you're thinking of visiting Galicia! It is absolutely sublime - everything you need in the cottage - very well equipped, beautiful outlook over the forest from your own outside patio, really warm welcome and really helpful tips on where to visit in the ridiculously stunning surrounding area and where to eat etc. You won't need to travel further afield as it's a total delight just relaxing in the area - it has everything you need. Maddie absolutely MADE our holiday with her warm welcome and tips and little touches in the cottage - it really wouldn't have been the same without her. We will be sure to go back next time we go to Spain! Love it love it love it.

      5/5 Excellent

        Wonderful house and garden !

        La casita de Maddie está perfectamente equipada, decorada con gusto, muy agradable y tranquila. El jardín es hermoso y los anfitriones son adorables. Las playas hermosas son accesibles en 10-15 minutos en coche. Recomiendo encarecidamente esta estancia!

            très belle région avec un climat tempéré

            Maddie (la propiétaire) est charmante et vous met tout de suite à l'aise. Un petit coin cosy pour être au calme dans un bel écrin de verdure. De belles balades et aussi la mer pas très loin avec des plages magnifiques, même si vous ne voulez pas vous baigner, vous pouvez marcher le long. De superbes falaises avec des points de vue extraordinaires!!! Activités : randonnées, canyons, baignade
