This apartment is a great base for a healthy and relaxing holiday. Though close to the centre of Laxe and to the beach, it is situated in a quiet, residential street, guaranteeing a good and uninterrupted sleep! It is more spacious than it appears in the photographs on the website and is well fitted out, with bright and comfortable furnishings, a well-stocked kitchen, a good bed and a surprisingly sunny balcony.
Paco’s mother Lola, was very welcoming and, although she did not speak English (and we did not speak Spanish!), she was very patient and succeeded in explaining all of the important things, about the workings of the apartment to us. Paco was available at the end of a phone, to take over, in the event that more detail was needed. The fact that he is a professional translator, helped to ensure that there were no misunderstandings. He also gave some helpful suggestions about where to visit during our stay on the Costa da Morte.
Laxe is one of those places that has a great openness and freshness about it, perhaps due to the fact that it is situated on a peninsula. There is a fine crescent of a town beach on the eastern side with two slightly wilder beaches, a bit further away on the western / south-western side. The hills that surround the beaches add to the great natural beauty and provide walking access to a number of dispersed and interesting rural villages such as Soesto, Transfontános and Borneiro. There is also a wonderful coastal walk from Laxe to Camelle that passes by the Praia de Traba and the village of Mórdorno. A short bus trip or taxi ride provides access to more coastal walks around Corme and around Monte de San Adrian in Malpica.
So all in all, during our two week stay in Laxe, Paco’s apartment provided us with a great base to set out on long, leisurely walks, to get rapid access to the town’s beach on our return and to finish our days with some good food and drink, at the towns best bars and restaurants. On those days when we did not want to eat out, it provided us with a well equipped kitchen to produce our own meals and a very comfortable base to read and to play board games.
Everything you need for a perfect stay. 3 minutes walk to beach and restaurants. Well equiped apartment. Helpful landlords.
