The Galicia region
Galicia is often referred to as Green Spain. Being on the Atlantic coast, it is quite different from the Mediterranean coast and has few foreign tourists.
The coastline is dramatic and the beaches vast stretches of white sand with few visitors.
Many fiestas are held in the surrounding villages especially in the summer.
The A Coruna / Monfero area
The large city of A Coruna is 30 minutes away, as is the airport. The historic town of Santiago de Compostela is one hour's drive away and the Roman walled town of Lugo 50 minutes away.
There are many excellent restaurants in the area, with the food always being freshly prepared in their kitchens.
The beach in Pontedeume is large and with very safe swimming and several beach restaurants. Market day in Pontedeume is Saturday.

We stayed at Prado Da Fonte on a number of occasions and each experience was better than the previous one. We were there during Winter, Spring and Summer and each had its own unique charm. The house is warm, beautiful and tastefully decorated. There is a piano there too for those who know how to play it. The view from the garden overcomes you with peace and tranquility, and the starry nights are just the most romantic. The walks around the place are lovely and the air clean and fresh. On those walks you will stumble over many Galician bars hidden away in the hills, not to mention the unexpected top class restaurants.
If you fancy something a bit more lively, Pontedeume is only 10 minutes away by car, an old town on the coast full of restaurants that serve amazing food and bars, a Saturday market and lovely square. At night, the place comes to life and is transformed into a party town that stays up all night.
This truly is one of the most beautiful spots. I would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable vacation.

The owners have restored this lovely old farmhouse in character but with up to date facilities and in a very sympathetic manner. Sitting out in the garden beside the traditional horreo one gets peaceful views over the countryside.
