Villa Salgueiros (Santiago),

We stayed here in August with our three boys and my wife's parents. The villa is a very relaxing and homely place to stay. We all loved the big swimming pool and the games that were in the house; the boys spent a lot of time on the pool table and the trampoline. We would thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone and the owner, Gil, was extremely friendly and helpful.

Casa Ignacio,

The owners are charming and very helpful. They prepared a meal for us for our arrival (at our request), invited us to take from their garden and orchard, showed us their livestock and sold us provisions from their small store/bar. The house is roomy (four bedrooms each with en suite bathroom), the swimming pool is inviting and secluded, and the back yard has a great covered grill and dining area. We spent considerable time in the large and well-appointed kitchen and dining area. The location is in a small village with friendly folk and is located just a few kilometers from a larger town with all needed ameneties. Great place, good location, fine owners, and a bargain.

The agency was very helpful in answering questions and providing additional information and photographs. Thank you!

Villa Maite in Sanxenxo,

Good location for exploring Galicia. Great to be able to walk to beach. House well-equipped with nice balcony. Senora Maite was very friendly and helpful. Green Spain were very straightforward to deal with and helpful with queries.

----------->Stuart, Groes Faen, Cardiff, UK<------------------

Villa Jose Luis in Bando (Santiago),

Large spacious property with a nice sized garden. The photos on the internet fairly reflected the actual property. Owners are very pleasant and helpful. The area is exactly what we wanted, quiet and peaceful.

----------->Stephen, London<---------------

Casa Castro (Lugo),

Beautiful house, wonderful gardens, fantastic locations. We had a very, very happy week. The owner met us and supplied us with home made cheese and chorizo and was helpful and friendly. We really loved the pool and the outdoor eating area. Keep up the good work! We had a great time.

----------->Christopher, Saviours rd, London<----------------

Casa Estivaliz (Noia),

We've never stayed anywhere in the world where the hosts were so generous with their house - they supplied us with everything we could possibly need and more. The house is really fantastic, and so are the hosts.

Villa Salgueiros (Santiago),

We enjoyed two weeks in this spacious villa. The house was well equipped with everything you could need and more. The pool table was particularly popular. The garden was lovely and we made good use of the swimming pool and trampoline particularly in the first week when the weather was hot and we ate outside almost every evening. From the villa there was easy access to the magnificent Santiago as well as Pontevedra and the spectacular north and west coasts. Muros was particularly good for seafood restaurants and we also had good meals in Santiago, especially at O Curro da Parra. This is a great part of Spain for fish and seafood. If you are interested in wildlife Fragas de Eume (near A Coruna), the Lagoon de Louro , Corrubedo and the river Ulla (near Pontevea) are worth a visit. There was also a magnificent ocellated lizard which enjoyed the sun regularly on the garden wall. Gil was tremendously helpful in responding to our questions both before and during our stay. For families, with a car, this is a good location in an interesting part of Spain with few British tourists.

----------->Stephen, Thame, Oxfordshire,England<-------------------

Villa Jorge in A Granxa(Sanxenxo),

Property was outstanding. Very clean, very spacious. Really well-equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location was also perfect for us - short walk to the beach, plus very easy to drive to lots of the lovely places in Galicia.  Our only minor complaint is that there seems to be a night club (or disco) about a kilometre away that was quite noisy on a couple of nights. Not much you can do about that though! Very small suggestion - a DVD player would be useful, especially for the kids, but other than that everything was perfect.  One of our best holidays ever. The property and location were outstanding. Would seriously consider going back to the same property again another year.

Villa Celia, Pontevedra,

Nous étions 2 familles françaises en séjour à la villa Celia; c'est une très belle maison pour passer des vacances en famille ou entre amis; la vue est splendide et donne envie de rester sur la terrasse au bord de la piscine; L'accès à la plage est très rapide et possible à pied. Les enfants ont bien profité de la piscine ! La maison est très propre, agréable malgré la chaleur et offre tout le confort avec 2 salles de bain et des chambres confortables. Très bien située, la villa celia permet de découvrir la Galice grâce à un accès rapide aux autoroutes; Il y a des restaurants familiaux de très bonne qualité aux villages voisins, notamment près de la plage de Redondela qui permet de découvrir la gastronomie locale; Nous avons trouvé facilement grâce aux explications de l'agence et à l'accueil organisé par la personne qui nous attendait. Nous y avons passé de très belles vacances !

Villa Jose Luis in Oleiros (A Corunna), July/Aug  2012

Jose and Chus and their fantastic, well equiped house in Oleiros made this the most enjoyable holiday we have had. I cannot think of any negatives and will have fond memories of this time. Thanks and best of luck to them.

Ideal and safe for families with children.

Lovely property. Excellent location. Very good quality. One of the best holidays we have ever had.

All round very happy with the communication and the service. Gil was great, and the local owner also very helpful. One small point - the ability to pay by credit card would have helped. Otherwise no issues.

Villa Celia, August 2010

Villa Celia was absolutely beautiful, even better than the photographs had led us to believe. The location was ideal, peaceful with glorious views. I spent many a happy hour watching the early-morning fishermen inspecting their nets. The villa and grounds provided something for everyone, from lounging by the pool to table tennis, kayaking, BBQ's and balmy evenings watching the sunset and enjoying a glass of wine. A magical holiday! Thank you.

From my first enquiry to the end of our holiday the service was first class. The directions were easy to follow, the local agent was friendly and helpful, and the villa was immaculate. The provision of a cleaner was a real treat and she was delightful. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and I have already booked for next year!

Villa Celia, August 2009

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Celia and discovering Galicia, which is a wonderful part of the world. The villa is beautifully situated and the accommodation was very suitable for our party. 

The villa was a great place to stay and its situation is fantastic.  
We look forward to using Green Spain Rentals in the future.

Casa Estivaliz, July 2009

The house was incredible and the owners of the property went above and beyond what was expected. They were warm and friendly and it was obvious that they cared a lot about the experience that we had staying in their home. The house itself was spacious and comfortable and the location was excellent (close to the beach but removed from any crowds). The town in which the house was located was quiet and friendly and very beautiful. I would absolutely stay in Casa Estivaliz again.

Gil was really helpful with everything! He made every effort to answer all of our questions and help us find the right place to stay. Our whole experience with Green Spain was excellent.

 

-------------from Chris, Madrid 28030 --------------------

Casa A Bodeguilla, April 2009

The house we stayed in was fantastic. Lovely rustic charm, all the amenities we needed and a great outdoor garden with good privacy, surrounded by lovely scenery.

The service from the owners and organisers was excellent. The owners left us to our own devices, but were there when we needed them. They also let us use their swimming pool and lent us some films to watch. I would happily recommend the place to other people.

 

-------------from Philip, Cascais, Portugal-----------------

Casa Os Paxaros, August 2009

Beautiful house, great amenities and wonderful 'landlords' ! It was provided in excellent condition, and Fernando the owner was extremely helpful and a pleasure to meet. Location near to Santiago is great.

Casa Edmundo, July 2009

Spacious, well equipped, good pool, good situation near beach.
Small issue with hot water in one flat - quickly remedied by the owner.

Mansion das Terras Altas, Aug 2009

El inmueble es realmente estupendo. La amplitud de habitaciones y salones tremenda. La finca es absolutamente increíble.

El servicio ha sido inmejorable.

 

-------------from Ian, Kingsland Road, London E84DB ------------------

Casa Charo, August 2009,

I unreservedly recommend Casa Charo. It catered for our every need and represented great value for money. Angel and his family were very welcoming. The property was well equipped and easily accommodated 8 adults. The open plan set up was ideal for us and it was nice to have the option of both eating inside and under the porch. The pictures of the garden don't do it justice; it was a great size with an open lawn, a barbeque area, and a good sized pool. Cambre has a couple of supermarkets, and several bars and restaurants. There is also a small shop and a bar walking distance from the property. Turko (the dog) was happy, friendly and well behaved.

 

-------------from Mark, Windsor, Berkshire, UK ---------------

Apartment Virginia, August 2009,

We received top class customer service from the moment we enquired about apartment availability to the moment we left Portosin.

Nothing was too much for Gil our questions were always answered promptly and any concerns soon disappeared as it was clear Gil was genuinely interested in making sure our holiday was a success.

The apartment that we stayed at for a month was called the Virginia its location was very nice a 5 minute walk from a lovely sandy beach, 2 minutes from the traditional fishing post and the four to five nice restaurants that it accommodates.

The apartment was very clean when we arrived and was very comfortable base for our family (3 adults and 2 young children).

To top it off the cost of stay was very competitive - very good value for money.

Thank you Gil for all your effort to make our 2009 holiday one to remember.

Regards,  Mark

Mansion das Terras Altas, July 2009

We had a superb holiday here, in a most beautiful setting. It was great to have an indoor pool – which was huge, and we really appreciated the tennis court which was in great condition. The whole mansion is very quiet which is exactly what we wanted, and the quality of the fixtures and fittings was excellent. We strongly recommend this for a family holiday in the guest house – where we stayed – or in the main house if you have a large group.

Santiago is a short drive away and the old town is beautiful with lovely restaurants. The beaches we went to within a 40 minute drive were just stunning – far better than the Costas.

We can absolutely recommend this place.

Villa Celia   , July 2009

We stayed in Villa Celia for a week in early July and it was fantastic. The weather was lovely, and the situation just breathtaking. We have never had such an incredible sea view on any holiday before. The villa was well equipped with board games and other kids toys along with table tennis and a beautiful pool. The nearby beaches were superb and really safe for the kids.

It was a very peaceful, relaxing holiday. I highly recommend this place.

Regards,

Casa Ignacio

Gil,

Just wanted to send a quick note thanking you for helping with our recent trip.  Casa Ignacio was, as expected, very nice and centrally located to many of the locations we wanted to visit.  Rafa and family were very accomodating.  I have passed your information on to friends who are considering visiting Galicia, hopefully it will lead to additional business for you.

Kindest Regards,

Villa Salgueiros

 Hello Gil,

 Just returned from our vacation. We loved your house. Thank you so very much for making the transaction happen so easily. We enjoyed the pool often as well. Upon leaving Villa Salguieros, we drove to Braga and then onto Lisbon. We were lost with the language but managed just fine and enjoyed the final few days of our 17 day vacation. Again thank you.

 

---------------------from Albert, Bristol, UK-----------------------------------

Villa Salgueiros

Thank you for the use of villa Salgueiros for the past week. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the villa was tremendous. The garden was lovely and we watered the plants every day. The pool was idyllic and to sit BBQing each night with a glass of wine very relaxing.

We also managed to get to your restaurant and found the food excellent.

We had time to spend a day in Santiago and another day went to Noia and then round the coast. Thank you for your recommendations for these trips.

All in all a lovely break and one we thoroughly enjoyed Thank you very much for your patience and help and we both hope you will feel better soon.
