Rent Villa Gaita Galicia Spain


Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas

Villa Gaita surpasses most luxurious villas in Galicia. Recently renovated to a supremely outstanding, up-to-the-minute, classy standard, it was voted by The Sunday Times Travel Section as one of 'The Top 50 Villas to Rent in Europe'. It is such an impressive restoration of an old country house mixing marvellous Galician stonework with baroque mirrors, polished cement floors, swanky kitchen and bathrooms and infinity pool. With four deluxe bedrooms sleeping up to eight guests (ten with small family members), it is perfect for a family or group of friends.

It is located just on the edge of Roo de Abaixo, a small village nestled into the mountains between medieval Noia and Muros in Galicia - just seven minutes in the car to the nearest heavenly beach. It is stunningly beautiful surrounded by lush pine forests, so tranquil and the views are incredible.

The superb garden has so much privacy you feel totally away from the hassle of everyday life. From the wonderful infinity pool and the sun loungers surrounding it, you can survey the breathtaking views. Surrounded by extraordinary planting, it is so relaxing! There is also a barbecue area for lovely family meals. Guests will not want to leave this house!

Inside, the house is a marvel. The contemporary design mixing seamlessly with the old traditional Galician stone walls is genius. The enormous double-height atrium space containing the living, dining and kitchen areas is awe-inspiring. The sublime, polished cement floors, complete with underfloor heating, give the house a wonderfully warm and luxurious feel. The kitchen is sleek and just perfect with bar stools. The enormous corner sofa faces the in-vogue fireplace. There are two impeccable bedrooms on the ground floor, one king and the other a twin. They share a huge, palatial bathroom which used to be the old kitchen. There is also a fantastic, spacious games area with a classic 1970s pub pool table and modern seating.

Trendy stairs reach the classy mezzanine reading area, decked with more seating and well-chosen mirrors leading to a further King and Twin bedroom. Again, they share a flawless bathroom. The beautiful balcony has splendid views of the church.

You cannot fail to be seriously impressed with this exquisite, impeccable villa. It will be very difficult to pull yourselves away to visit the wonderful beaches and restaurants around but you must!

What you should know…

There are quite a few steps down to the pool area and the garden generally so this is not really suitable for those less mobile.

We recommend hiring a car to reach this villa and explore the area
There is no fencing around the swimming pool, so children must be supervised at all times

Villa Gaita is just on the edge of Roo de Abaixo, a very friendly village in the province of A Coruna. You will feel that you are in the glorious countryside in this location but there is a shop close by, it is a 10-minute drive to the nearest beach and 30 minutes away if you want a serious surfing beach with water sports. The area is very unspoilt and with spectacular scenery and stunning beaches, it is perfect for a family summer holiday. It is sometimes said that the coastline is a little like Norway with dozens of bays and inlets littering the shoreline.

Noia, near the mouth of the Tambre river and with a backdrop of the San Marcos mountains, is 10 minutes in the car and Muros a bit further. With their genuine Galician culture and historic ancestry, they are both wonderful. With their many restaurants and musical entertainment, you will enjoy spending an evening there. Galicia is known for its delicious cuisine, especially seafood. Make sure you try some of the local Galician wine! Muros has a busy weekly market.

Roo de Abaixo is 25 miles west of Santiago de Compostela which is the jewel in Galicia’s crown. It has World Heritage status and many visitors wanting to explore and experience this historic town’s culture, unique buildings and architecture. A walk around the old district leaves most sightseers in awe as they cast their eyes over the intricate masonry. The bars and restaurants of the town’s streets and plazas offer a huge variety of tapas and other delicious meals.

The Ria has 70 wonderful beaches stretching from Finisterre, the North side of the Ria to Corrubedo on the south side. The nearest to the villa is Playa de Brona, a family beach. Carnota with its lovely sand dunes and rock pools, crab and fish catching is a real favourite. Louro with beautiful sand and crystal-clear waters is perfect for families. Playa de Esteiro is very charming.

The nearest airport is Santiago de Compostela 40 km away (roughly 50 minutes by car). Alternatively, Vigo and La Coruna airports are 100km away.

Like many parts of Spain, Galicia has its very own identity that has remained intact through its regional dialect and distinguishing culture. Although Galicia is recognised for its holy traditions, we urge budding tourists to also consider its astonishing green countryside & rivers and its UNESCO World Heritage sites. Occasionally you may even hear the gentle tootling of bagpipes, known locally as the Galician Gaita, along this northern corner of the Iberian Peninsula.

You're likely to fly into Santiago de Compostela, which is the capital of Galicia and is probably best known for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage and its route. Many of the travellers embark on this journey by foot and tend to be mesmerised by this fine city at the end of their trek. Casco Viejo, or the Old Town, is a good place to end or even start your holiday. This area of the city is blessed with markets, restaurants, bars and buildings from a bygone era. After exhausting yourself in the busyness of the city, take a day trip to Praia de Rodas, on the gorgeous Cíes Islands. These small islands, accessible by boat from Vigo, Baiona, or Cangas, have been noted as having some of the best beaches in the world. It has to be seen to be believed!

Galicia is divided into four key regions: A Coruña, Lugo, Ourense and our favourite – Pontevedra. A Galician proverb states that 'Pontevedra gives water to travellers'. We firmly believe this to be true, as this particular part of Galicia has everything a traveller could need for an unforgettable experience and it almost feels like this city is constantly giving back. Whilst you holiday in Pontevedra you will realise that days are structured around mealtime. And why wouldn't they be? With some of the best seafood you will experience in Spain and the noteworthy Albariño wine, you may notice your jeans feeling a little tighter toward the end of your holiday. You will be glad to know that your waistline need not be a cause for concern though! Pontevedra is blessed with some of the best hiking trails, medieval monasteries, estuaries, and valleys within Spain. Don't forget about the coastline either! Rarely you will you find so many empty beaches, so make the most of this privacy and just embrace the nature around you.

Galicia is still an unspoilt part of the world. It has everything a diverse group of friends & family need to have a glorious adventure.

Xacobeo (Holy Year)
2022 is a great year to visit Galicia because it's the Holy Year! The Xacobeo year (pronounced sa-co-bay-oh) celebrates the time when the last stone of Santiago's original cathedral was placed, and an important priest decided on a feast to celebrate. When it is the Holy Year, the Puerta Santa (holy door) of the Santiago Cathedral remains open for pilgrims for the whole year, and its closing marks the end of the Holy Year. The Xacobeo year only happens every 5,6, or 11 years, whenever July 25th occurs on a Sunday, which is also the National Day of Galicia and Saint James. The Xacobeo year means that the Camino trail is busier than ever, and there are plenty of festivities to enjoy, so it's a perfect time to visit the region and explore what it has to offer! Check out the official website here to learn more.

Getting There
Galicia is served by either Santiago de Compostela Airport, A Coruña Airport, or Vigo Airport.

This discounted rail pass gives you access to various rail routes created by the Galician Regional Government and based on key elements of the region. Follow the Lighthouse Route along the northern coastline and stop to admire the lighthouses and gorgeous sea views, or hop on and follow one of the Ribeira Sacra Wine Routes to visit the lovely towns and wineries where acclaimed Galician wines are made and enjoyed.
