Villas in Spain and Portugal

Villa hunting tips in Galicia, Spain

Remember that finding a villa in Galicia, or any other region of northern Spain, is not as easy as it is in some of the more popular southern Costas. But be assured that there are a lot of rental properties out there and that they are located all around the region - both by the beaches and in inland rural areas.

Planning a holiday in the north of Spain can take time and, in the case of Galicia, getting the right villa in the right location will pay dividends. however you may have to search around a bit.

An alternative to staying in Galicia Spain is to base yourself in northern Portugal by the edge of the Galician border and travel in and out of the region by car. These border areas are amongst the most beautiful in Spain and you can enjoy not just a two center, but a two country holiday. The closest airport to this zone is O Porto in Portugal.

Travel time from the border to Vigo is only 30 to 45 minutes and it is possible (using the toll road) to get from the Spain - Portugal border to Santiago de Compostela in 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours. If you want to spend time in the warmer Galician province of Pontevedra, then a base in Portugal is not a bad idea and you will find plenty of villas and self catering apartments in and around this area.

Cannot find what you are looking for!

Galicia is a large region with plenty of rental villas. Some of these villas are privately owned, but most are rented out (or promoted) through one of the big villa rental chains, so check those out and you should find something suitable. Running searches for private villas and self catering accommodation in northern Spain may also come up dividends.
