Those who possess property in the smart neighbourhood of Monte Lourido are usually the envy of the local people of Galicia and it is easy to see why. This area of stylish homes occupies a prestigious position on the slopes of a small hill, just at the end of the long sweep of golden sands that is Playa America. Surrounded on almost all sides by water and occupying elevated terrain, the sea views from here are superb whilst the beach, its adjacent cafés, restaurants and water sport facilities are all within walking distance.
It was therefore with great delight that we discovered this Villa, which enjoys this much sought after setting. Within its tiered grounds, steps lead the way down through colourful beds of bright flowers to the swimming pool, its surrounding lawns and an impressive outdoor dining area that incorporates a brick built barbecue,work surfaces, a washing up area and seating. Ahead, the ocean stretches out to the horizon; to the left in the distance, the chic town of Baiona can be seen hugging the coast; to the right, it is Playa America that occupies the shoreline. The cafés and restaurants of the beach can be reached by way of a 600 metre walk downhill from the house, whilst fashionable Baiona with its ancient alleyways and smart squares is only 4km away.
Much time has been spent on the recent construction of the house, which displays beautiful carpentry of the highest quality and much attention to detail. Careful consideration has also been given to the division of rooms throughout the three floors of the property. The sitting room, with its wide French windows and balcony occupies one of the higher levels so as to take full advantage of the extensive panorama, whilst the spacious kitchen is on the ground floor, within easy reach of the outdoor barbecue area.
