We were sad to leave this fantastic home after having a fantastic week in beautiful Galicia. Casa Aldea Loureiro is an absolute top class accomodation!
The house is clean and features a superb mixture of historic character and modern comfort and design. It is carefuly restored, with taste and an eye for its unique historical features. Loureiro is spacious, the interior and exterior are atmospheric and it is an ideal base for exploring the area.
Although easy to reach from the main road, the house offers a quite and natural location where the nights are still dark. The great garden features furniture, a barbecue and plenty of historical features characteristic for the area. There is ample parking space at the house. It is a real treat to explore the land surrounding Loureiro and to get away from the stress of daily life. The garden is full of wildlife. We spotted for instance a fox and a lot of birds including a barn owl.
The house is centrally situated to the Costa da Morte with its nice fishing villages, sandy beaches and beautiful viewpoints. Lively Santiago de Compostela is only an hours drive away. A journey of a bit over an hour brings you to A Coruna, the inland of Galicia and the the beautiful Rias Baixas coast.
Victor is a very friendly and welcoming host who speaks good English. He responds quickly to messages and we got clear directions to the meeting point close to the house. From here, Victor showed us the way to Loureiro and showed us round in the house and grounds. He has a lot of knowledge about the local area and can provide information on day trips, sightseeing, restaurants, shops etc.
As said before, this property is unique in its kind and saved carefully with a sense of the value of the building. I will definitely recommend this house and Galicia as a whole to future renters and I hope to come back once in the future!
