A stone house in a traditional hamlet with all comforts for 8 people
- english, french, spanish
Being my husband and his family originally from this region, we have always enjoyed our summer holidays here. Although we currently live abroad, we come as often as we can. It is our private haven to escape from everyday hassles and fusses. A house thought for escaping, relaxing and entertaining our close friends and family, with all we need to feel comfortable and at home.
Macarena purchased this House in 2007
Why Macarena chose Cedeira
The first time we visited Golmar, we inmediately felt the magic and beauty of the place and started to make plans. This was our personal project for a while, and we have moved here a good part of our family history to feel at home and relaxed. We have never looked back or regret our decision. The more we travel, the more we realise how valuable this place is.
What makes this House unique
Simply, very difficult to find a better getaway: you have the views from EVERY room of the house, you have the unspoiled nature at your feet, you have the peace and the uniqueness of the place. We have enjoyed the most impressive sunsets from outside and inside the house. The house is also perfect for sharing because you have different living areas: porch and garden outdoors; a living room with two separated sitting areas, another separate TV room, a dining area indoors and a nice garden in two levels with a sun-bathing area and a dine "al fresco" area.

a little slice of heaven
We spent 3 days at this beautiful home... and of course, hated to leave. The house is absolutely amazing - stocked with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and memorable stay, beautifully furnished, with breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding areas. The village/hamlet that the house is in is great for a quiet and relaxing getaway. The area around the house is great for hiking, photography, or just to take a walk within nature. Oh, and just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we saw wild horses! The town of Cedeira is a short drive from the house. There, you can find restaurants, bars, shopping and a grocery store (supermarket) with a wide selection of food items to purchase if you wish to cook at home (which we did for several meals).
You won't want to leave!
There were 6 of us (3 couples) from the UK. We spent 2 weeks in this very lovely house. The location was superb with views over the sea. The house was well appointed with all that you could possibly need for a great holiday. Everything worked as it ought to and provided a fabulous base from which we could explore the immediate and wider locality of Northern Spain. The local walking is excellent through eucalyptus forests; wider afield there are coastal pathways overlooking magnificent scenery. The local town provides everything would need with good supermarkets, fresh food shops and of course plenty of fresh fish of all descriptions. We visited one or two of the restaurants and found them very good indeed. The local tourism office is extremely helpful. We should definitely come back another time.
We really enjoyed our fortnight stay at Lugar Pequeno, a wonderful house high in the hills above Cedeira. The views are magnificent and the afternoons and early evenings get lots of sunshine; all very quiet and peaceful. The property is well appointed and everything works! We brought our bikes with us and cycled every day - the roads are quiet and there are some great, though very hilly, rides in this part of Galicia. Stage 4 of the 2016 Vuelta came through Cedeira and finished above San Andres de Teixido, a sanctuary which is well worth a visit. Cedeira itself is a nice town, with lots of good cafes and restaurants. A Coruna is an hour or so away in the car and well worth a visit; we stayed there one night and then took the train to Santiago (30 minutes by train from A Coruna) for a short visit, an arrangement that worked well for us. So, five stars from us.
Lugar Pequeno: beautiful house, stunning views
The house is beautifully presented and very comfortable. We found that everything we needed for our stay was to hand.
The views from the terrace across the garden to the ocean are magnificent. The location is peaceful but relatively accessible (car required, winding uphill road through forest). There are many beautiful beaches within a short drive, and the attractive town of Cedeira offers numerous cafes, bars and restaurants as well as shops, banks etc. Recommended.
Lovely views from a fine building
Grand three level very modern house. Well equipped. Lovely views down the valley to the sea below (house is about 600' up above) and wide ranging coastal vista to headlands in the distance.
La casa es preciosa. El entorno es espectacular y muy tranquilo. Las vistas y las puestas de sol inolvidables. El equipamiento de la casa muy completo. Para repetir.
Away from the mass tourism of other regions, the house is located in the Rias Altas area and Costa Artabra, an undiscovered coastal zone of unique natural beauty. Within minutes from wonderful sandy beaches, estuaries, lagoons and impressive cliffs. You will be within a natural area of 'Natura 2000', the EU's network of sites of interest due to their ecosystems and biodiversity. It is possible to see occasionally wild horses, foxes, wild boar or roe deer.
From the house, you can walk to the valley, forest and cliffs, the lighthouse or the small church of St. Antonio. From the hamlet, you can take the footpath to the pilgrimage place of San Andrés, which leads to the zone with the highest cliffs in the western European continent (620m. above the sea level), and impressive cape Ortegal, of geological interest. The house, at 4,5 Km from the fishing town of Cedeira with all facilities, shops and restaurants, is an excelent base for exploring the region of Galicia: natural parks, world heritage towns, like Santiago, and lively cities like A Coruña.
Other activities: surfing, horse riding, kayak, etc.
