Casa Callaecia 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 breath-taking 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 wonderful warm and luxurious feel. The kitchen is sleek and just perfect with bar stools. The enormous corner sofa faces the in-vogue fire place. 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 1970’s 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!
Casa Callaecia 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 7-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 20 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 Santiaga de Compostela 40km (roughly 50 minutes) away. Alternatively, Vigo and La Coruna airports are 100km away.
