About the property

For a slice of real Spanish life.

Voted a top 50 European Rental Villa by the Sunday Times Travel section.

This outstanding old stone house renovation seamlessly mixes original stone wall features with a contemporary living space. Its outstanding feature is its enormous atrium living/dining/kitchen area with massive open fireplace and bar area. It also has four double bedrooms, a huge main bathroom, an upstairs shower room and downstairs w-c as well as a mezzanine space and games room with classic bar 'pool' table.

It's situated in the tiny village of Roo in the coastal area of Ria de Muros y Noia. The Ria winds its way inland for 40km, harbouring pristine white sandy beaches occupied only by the locals before and after siestas. The villa is blessed with fantastic countryside views and is a five minute drive to the local beach. It has a huge garden space, which has three levels; a BBQ area, a private 10m x 5m pool and a 'games' area for boules and the like. The night lighting in the garden completes the magical appearance of this wonderful villa.

About Maria Moreno Lamas

Originally from The South East of England - we moved to Galicia in 2005 in search of an affordable renovation project - Maria had family here and at the time there were plenty of opportunities - great old stone houses that had fallen in to disrepair. The original idea was to renovate and sell and return to the UK - but I fell in love with the Ría de Muros y Noia - a spectacular and unique coastal estuary lined with incredible white-sandy beaches and we are still here! We now spend our time renovating properties for other people.

Maria Moreno Lamas purchased this villa in 2006

Why Maria Moreno Lamas chose Ria de Muros y Noia

Casa Piloto was left unused for 30 years after a house fire - our dog actually found the property - it was completely overgrown but still, despite the neglect, its stonewalls protected its structure. It had wonderful potential and enormous spaces to work with combined with beautiful valley views and easy access to the Ría. It became a real labour of love!

What makes this villa unique

Location, location, location! The Rìa de Muros y Noia remains one of the few undeveloped regions in Spain - its original, authentic and life goes on here as it has for generations. The proximity of Casa Piloto to the beaches and the stunning forest and mountain scenery set it apart and give it a unique serenity, it's a place to breath deeply and enjoy nature at its best, a place to unwind and get back in tune with yourself.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Rupert & Maria

Thank you for all your hard work and hospitality in putting together this beautiful house. We enjoyed it, the rain and the shine! And touristing around Santiago. We loved the beach at Carnota, hiking in the woods, the market at Noia, the warm neighbours, walking to the village for a glass of wine or groceries, eating peppers in Padron, driving to Portugal for a day, visiting local cathedrals and being welcomed in the church at the end of the day to hear choir practise – beautiful.

A stunning retreat and the perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

a stunning house in a stunning location. It really is the perfect retreat set in a small village with fantastic views. The locals are friendly with local shops providing really good local produce. The Sandy beaches are a short drive away and you are guaranteed plenty of space to pitch up and enjoy the sand, sea and surf....highly recommended.

A Galician wonder

  • 5 of 5

As I mounted the grass steps and rounded the corner towards the entrance my heart burst with delight at the magical scene that greeted...lush vegetation framing twin spires of a neighbouring church in a singular manner that was at once disorientating ( seeming so South American) and wondrous...and so it began, a five day experience of a fascinating house and garden nestled in a curious village on real deal strip of Galicia that just kept giving...the dawn chorus, fulsome babble of nearby river (although not quite what it seems on inspection!) gorgeous beaches at Carnota, fantastic dining at Muros...house is great especially for hide and seek!! Definitely recommend it

Beautiful house; stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Piloto. It was a very easy and comfortable place for all 7 of us to be together but also to have space to be apart at times. The pool provided us with hours of pleasure each day and our three year old grandson learned many new water skills! The location and views are stunning and GoGalicia's excellent guide to the region was a brilliant resource. We would wholeheartedly recommend this beautiful 'home from home' to families or groups of friends. Thank you Rupert and Maria!

Wonderful restoration

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, the area is as lovely as the house and its view. We have rented many villas and this is truthfully one of the most beautiful and well restored.

Because the immediate surroundings are so nice, we spent most of the time there, going for long walks in the woods, which are well worth exploring. The swimming pool and pool table were well used, so was the boules green (bumpy but fun!)

This renovated Grand old stone Villa sits in the forests beside the amazing Ria de Muros and Noia. Just 3kms from the pristine, white sandy beaches of the Ria. The two small towns of Noia and Muros are nearby for evening strolls, meals and fiestas. The historic city of Santiago de Compostela is just a 30minute drive away. Mountain hiking, swimming, horse riding, go-karting, tennis and golfing activities are all within an easy drive from the villa.

But, its own private pool, BBQ area, private boules area and stunning views interrupted only by the sounds of the river and sightings of eagles may well persuade you to stay at the villa for the duration of your stay!

Other nearby Activities: Go Karting
