Visit our website: www.galiciavillas.com

Catro Faros voted one of the five most luxurious rental villas on the Spanish coast and was recently remodelled in June 2016.(See story on our website: www.galiciavillas.com)

Catro Faros is an impressive luxury villa with avant-garde lines designed by a famous local architect. The remodel in 2016 features interior decoration by a local artist who specializes in Italian style mural paintings which are now featured in many rooms of the house. The house has transitioned the cool modern interior into a minimalistic vintage decor that only empathizes the modern architecture.

'Catro Faros' translates as 'Four Lighthouses,' and the home is so named because from its terraces one can see four of the most famous lighthouses in Galicia: the lighthouses on Ons Island, on the Cíes Islands, and on Capes Home and Udra.

With a spacious 4,300 square feet living space (400 square meters), Catro Faros is located in a one-of-a-kind enclave in the coastal town of Sanxenxo. Its panoramic ocean views will astonish all those who view them.

The house rests on a well-manicured plot of over 10,000 square feet (950 square meters). The private heated pool is more than 500 square feet (5 meters x 10 meters). Beside the pool, guests will find stylish lawn furniture for lounging and sunbathing. You can also enjoy the sun on nearly 2,000 square feet (180 square meters) of elegant Ipe terraces. The house has 5 bedrooms, each with impressive ocean views.

The house has modern inside and outside electric blinds, motorized windows, LED 55 inchs television with 3D in the living room (2D to 3D conversion), satellite and WIFI (Wireless Internet Access), 44 inch television in the main bedrooms and a bathroom with 27 inchs television and a marvellous hydromassage bathtub with the following functions: cromotherapy and aromatherapy. You will enjoy a relaxing bath watching the Atlantic Islands National Park from a spacious window.

Moreover, the house has radiant floor heating/air conditioning in each room, a warm wooden platform in the whole house, high quality furniture and electrical appliances, bathrooms with spacious showers which have hydromassage and piped music and a fifty square meter dining room.

One of the most important qualities of the house is its brightness, due to its spacious windows and its glass walls.

The house is situated in a green and peacefull area.

The perfect place in Galicia

  • 5 of 5

Catro Faros is the definitive luxury vacation rental: contemporary architecture, light filled and spacious rooms, and truly impressive views from so many vantage points around the house, particularly as you relax around the pool. This is a hi-tech house - it took a little while to figure out the multiple ways to open the windows and doors, the numerous window shade remote controls, appliances, and sound system, but after a couple of days, it was second nature.

Given the abundant Galician seafood readily available from a nearby fish market and supermercados, we made extensive use of the kitchen and bbq, enjoying many delicious alfresco meals. And for your daily bread, it’s an easy walk to the best panaderia in the area, Panaderia A. Castro – say hi to the warm and welcoming Beatrice and tell her the bread baker from Los Angeles sent you.

The location is ideal for short drives to Combarro (our favorite fishing village), A Illa de Arousa (fabulous rock formations at low tide) and Ruta da Pedra e da Auga (a gorgeous riverwalk, part of the Portugese Way), and longer drives to A Guarda (Celtic settlement), Tui (medieval town), and Valenca (Portugal). It’s less than an hour to Santiago de Compostela, and from there it’s worth the trip to Muxia (where granite meets the sea) and Finisterre (the western most point in Spain). Despite many worthwhile day trips, there were many days we preferred to just enjoy the house, pool and incredible view.

Patricia was a friendly and responsive host. She was always available via Whatsapp to provide advice or recommendations. When asked about the best cabrito restaurant in the area, she said she’d ask around - she pointed us to Casa Pipeiro in Ponte Caldelas, which had absolutely the best cabrito. We’re real foodies and found many very innovative fine dining restaurants within a 30 minute drive whose meals easily competed with some our of best around the world. One of Patricia’s favorites also became ours - Pepe Veiras in Raxo.

Our stay was perfect. We’ve recommended Catros Faros to our friends and will definitely stay there next time in Galicia.

Lovely Villa near Montalvo beach

  • 5 of 5

This really is a fantastic holiday villa - if anything, it's better when you get there than in the photos. Excellent standard of accommodation and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The pool and the outside areas were lovely. We were fortunate with a week of hot weather, so lots of opportunities to swim and use the barbecue. The restaurant opposite is very nice and so convenient that we only ate elsewhere once. The beach is a 10 mins walk from the house and we thought it one of the nicest beaches along this stretch. The views from the house are fantastic. All in all we had a thoroughly relaxing time and would recommend the villa for a great holiday.

If I could live here, life would be perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Castro Farros is a GORGOUS villa, edging on mansion in Galicia in Northern Spain. The area is amazing with the house 10 min from the beach and SO close to thousands of things, you never have to drive for more than 30min to see something spectacular! My husbands favorite place was Combarro, 20 min from the house and a traditional fishing village. The only thing better than the quaint seaside towns and ocean views is the house... From top of the line entertainment systems to the luxury Jacuzzi this house has everything we could ever need! We were blessed to come right after their remodel in June 2016 and I have never seen anything more beautiful. The décor is simple, elegant, and absolutely wonderful to the point of feeling like your in a dream. In most rooms of the house are delicate hand painted murals, with my daughters favorite being of a flamingo scene in the downstairs bathroom! Everything was wonderful for our week stay and the weather couldn't have been more comfortable for the beach during the day, to the cool breeze at night. This villa may be a 10 min walk from the beach, but if the trip was an hour drive, this house would make it worth getting any condo on the beach!

Beautiful house and very responsive hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property. The house is new and modern, but also very comfortable. Everything is done with five star quality materials. Good location that is a short walk to the beach, but set up high enough to offer great views. It is also a easy drive (about 45 minutes) to Santiago, and many other interesting destinations. The pool area is a real highlight. The pool is very large, and the house has a great grill for outdoor barbeques. The hosts are very friendly and responsive. They live nearby, and were able to respond right away to any question or request that I had. Highly recommended.

Beautiful property in a beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5

As we pulled up to the driveway, I couldn't believe my eyes. What an impressive palace my family and I were to stay in!

The house is spacious, modern, and regal. I could shower while listening to the stero system installed. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the terrace while our children swam in the pool. Each night, we took advantage of the pleasant weather and dined outside, basking in the serenity of the rural neighborhood.

The beach is only a 10 minute walking distance through the countryside. Once there, I would run along the shores and take walks along the rocky hillside. Every Monday and Thursday morning, the street market is held in the morning in Portonovo. Fresh fruits, churros, and clothes are sold there.

This house is gorgeous and it is the perfect getaway for a relaxing vacation. Everything was clean and tidy, from the linen to the floors. Thanks you Patri and Quique for all the hard work you put in! It sure pays off.

This villa has it all!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic experience! Upon arrival, we felt immediately on holiday. Patricia had left wine and food for us which was great to enjoy on the rooftop terrace. Everything was clean and fresh when we arrived - even the pool was crystal clear. The many windows in the house are perfect, as the views from the villa are breathtaking.

The villa's location was great. I would recommend renting a car while staying here, as there is so much to do in the region. Portonovo is a few minutes by car, and is a very charming town with lots of tent shops, tapas bars, and a beautiful harbor. Sanxenxo is nearby as well; it's a lovely 20 minute walk between the towns. All of the beaches we visited were beautiful. The Spanish/Galician culture and hospitality was a pleasure to experience.

Patricia was very attentive during our stay; from directions to the villa, recommendations of things to do, and finally our departure.

I would not hesitate to stay here again, and I hope to return soon! If you are thinking of visiting this region, I would definitely recommend staying at Catro Faros.

Many thanks again to Patricia & Qui-Que for a wonderful holiday!

Catro Faros is located in the town of Sanxenxo (the most important

coastal tourist center in Galicia thanks to its white beaches,

incredible scenery and renowned cuisine).

Sanxenxo is famous for having the greatest number of beaches awarded

the Blue Flag certification in Spain since 2004. It also offers a

special microclimate that provides guests with the best weather in the

region. Beaches like Montalvo, Bascuas, Silgar, Major, Paxariñas,

Canelas, Caneliñas, Baltar and A Lanzada, in addition to numerous

small coves, can all be found in a radius of under two miles (3 km).

The house is situated less than ten minutes on foot from the famous

Montalvo beach and less than fifteen minutes on foot from the

well-known Bascuas nude beach.

In Sanxenxo you can enjoy numerous activities such as karting, water

sports, horseback riding, boat rental, day trips to Ons Island, the A

Toxa casino, and the prestigious A Toxa and Monte Castrove golf

courses, to name a few.
