Immersed in a vast nature reserve along the Galician coast, this cabin rental in Spain is located in a secluded and idyllic location surrounded by forests and vineyards where the wild, sparsely inhabited land meets the Atlantic.
Separated from the main house by a footpath, the cabana faces the nature reserve creating a private and separate space.
The living room has a large sliding window, a warming wood stove, and a mezzanine bedroom and a kitchenette that now matches the home’s calm and chic aesthetic with room for two.
It is compact but well designed and feels a bit like being inside a boat, with steps leading down to a shower room.
The outdoor spaces include a kitchen area, charcoal BBQ and gas plancha, two tiered living and lounge areas and dining spaces that lead into the gardens and beyond.
An appealing and seamless blend of simple rustic living combined with a creative and respectful modern restoration, this is a lovely Galician retreat.
Wifi throughout, SONOS sound system, laundry facilities, kitchen and bath amenities, private parking (down a dirt road).
Please note: There is a pool on the adjacent property, but it is not accessible.
The Aldan region of Galicia has a unique microclimate and is one of the most temperate in Spain. From the house you can walk to two beautiful uncrowded beaches (Barra is over three kilometers long) through unspoiled nature preserves along the Cabo do Home as well as to the tiny village of Donon with great local markets and just a couple of cafes and bars.
The northwest region of Galicia is known as the four leaf clover of Spain due to its four green provinces of Pontevedra, Coruña, Ourense and Lugo and has remained one of the most unspoiled parts of the country. Flanked by beautiful mountains and idyllic Atlantic coastline dotted with islands, it’s a region of great diversity.
The nearby province of Pontevedra, features the lush green beauty of the Miñor Valley with many local vineyards and the spectacular Atlantic Islands National Park, a protected chain that includes the islands of Cies, Ons, Salvora and Cortegada. Just north of Vigo and within ninety minutes from the grand UNESCO capital of the region, Santiago de Compostela, you are also an hour north of the border of Portugal.
Donon, Galicia, Spain. Nearest airport: Vigo (30 mins), Porto (1 hr. 45 mins), Santiago (90 mins), La Coruña (2 hrs)
BEST TIME TO VISIT: The weather from June through September is the best while November through March is often rainy, but still great for walks and sitting by the fire.
