“Villa, Location and Owner could not be better”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The Villa is perfectly located with stunning sea views and 5 minutes walk to a beautiful and quiet beach. The villa has an incredibly high spec for a holiday home, with Wifi, 3D TV, climate control and ipod docks in each bedroom, and music system for inside and outside.

The villa really could not be better, and is very spacious both inside and outside.

Sanxenxo is the perfect place to be located for sailing, beaches and of course food and wine. Everything is 15mins drive away.

Finally Patricia is the perfect owner/ host, she was very helpful with how to best use the villa, as well as the best local services and attractions. She even had some wine and tapas awaiting us on arrival. simply perfect

Thankyou Patricia!

“A fabulous Galician vacation villa”
Reviewed 7 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Our family spent a wonderful two weeks at Catro Faros in July 2012. The house was as great as it looked on the website and the combination of the open plan living space, modern technology, spectacular views and refreshing pool made for a relaxing and very enjoyable two weeks. Having a great seafood restaurant and small shop just across the road was a bonus, as was the welcome package provided that included excellent wine and local produce. We felt perfectly comfortable sending our kids across the road for bread and ham in the morning and it all added to the feeling of really being immersed in the Galician culture. The kids enjoyed the 3-D TV and the selection of DVDs provided while the adults spent many evening sharing a glass wine on the terrace looking out to the twinkling lighthouses of the Rias Baixas (the Catro Faros which the house is named after).

Location of the house is excellent. You are 5 minutes drive to Portonovo and Sanxenxo towns and a short walk to a wonderful beach at Montalvo. Going North the Salnes Valley express road means that you can be in Santiago in 45 minutes and heading South Vigo in about the same time. During our stay we ate in some outstanding restaurants and also travelled out on ferries to both the Isla Ons and Isla Cies, both of which were wonderful full day trips with a great combination of hiking, fresh seafood lunches and time on the beach.

I can’t recommend Catro Faros highly enough. It is a great house in a wonderful location and Patricia is an attentive owner who speaks excellent English and went out of her way to make sure we had a great two weeks.

“Fantastic Villa !”
Reviewed 13 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We booked this Villa because it looked outstanding and very spacious from the website and it certainly didn't disappoint as it was absolutely amazing! The villa was very bright, rooms were open plan and the large panel windows in every room made it feel very open. The salt water pool was lovely and the kids were never out of it! The views were fantastic and the two leveled balconies were very large and relaxing. The bathrooms were lovely each with amazing showers, and a large Spa bath including its own TV! The 3D TV was brilliant and the kids enjoyed watching the DVD's that were provided although we didn't really spend much time watching TV as spent most evenings just relaxing by the poolside. The local beach was just a 10min walk and when we visited it was completely empty and very clean.

We arrive late Sunday so all the shops were closed however the owners catered for us by providing a very generous welcome pack including bread, eggs, cheese, bacon, yogurts, wine, lager, pasta, pate, cakes and fruit juice just to name a few. There was a Seafood restaurant across the road and the owners said we could order and they would deliver the food to our Villa. We ordered on our first evening and had it delivered, the food was lovely and very reasonable.

We normally holiday in the South of Spain as the weather is guaranteed so we were a little cautious about the weather in the North however we had a great week averaging at 25 - 30 degrees. We were due to leave a week later however we were having such a great time we decided to extend our stay for a further 3 days for which the owners were extremely accommodating. We will definitely be booking again next year! Thanks again Patricia
