“A special place wonderful people, we will return again, and again!”
Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

My wife and I travel all over the place for food. Yes there is culture, significance, beauty and meaning to be found in so many places, but culinary tradition in beautiful settings is what speaks most directly, and certainly most often, to us. We love to cook and so when traveling we opt for rentals with kitchens over hotels whenever it makes sense. Sure we spend months researching and reserving the restaurants we want to visit, but we find the ability to source top quality local ingredients that we simply can’t get at home and prepare them simply ourselves to be as exciting as most any Michelin star. With this being said, we have stayed Catro Faros twice in as many years and I can say that it may well be our favorite all around rental experience we have encountered, anywhere, to date. The beauty and tradition of the region together with the high level of restaurants and incredible bounty of produce to be found in the area make it tough to beat. The Villa Catro Faros is modern luxury perfectly located to relax, entertain and simply enjoy the very best the region has to offer.

Perched on quite hillside, save the occasional rooster or your own music, the terraced private pool and balconies afford secluded views of the ocean and surrounding area while still being close to the markets and restaurants that we most want to visit. With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house has ample room. That being said, for us we think the right balance for the flow of the space may be 2 or 3 couples or maybe 1 or 2 small families. The house was built with love by a significant architect in the region, who is also a close friend of the owners, and that love shows in so many of the house’s details. As much as one can say of the house itself, and others rightly have in all of the reviews, I feel just as much of the credit for the wonderful stays we have had here go to the dedicated and delightful owners.

Patricia and Quique. the owners, have been so warm and attentive both before and during our stays at Catro Faros. From helping arrange packages and reservations ahead of our arrival to trouble shooting our needs and requests while we are there. On our last stay there, I mentioned to Patricia that I thought I was coming down with a sore throat and she thoughtfully showed up within the hour having picked up medicine for me. FWIW, I believe my throat was the start of something more serious and she likely saved our vacation… or at least mine (my wife loves me but even with me under the weather, it would be tough to imagine her not enjoying herself here). We wanted to show them our appreciation for all of their time and generosity and so we cooked for them one night and just had a wonderful time together. They were the perfect guests... even in their own house! We consider them both friends now and we look forward to seeing them and Catro Faros again before long.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed January 31, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

All equipment, furniture and facilities were even better than imagined. The interior decor is unique, simple and tasteful, the colours and paintings of a talented local artist evoking the nearby forests, hills and sea.
A house designed to make the very best of its wonderful location. Extensive use of glass merges the concepts of inside/outside. Although it was winter we could sit anywhere , bath included, and immerse ourselves in the views.
Idyllic situation looking over the village to the sea (beach 10 minutes' walk). With a restaurant (take-away possible) and shop across the street, we had no need of the car although there are many other attractions a short drive away.
We thought it perfect in every way and hope to return to experience the pool and terraces in another season, although even in January the sunshine was superb, allowing us to sit outside for a drink.
As a local native, Patricia offers not only a warm welcome, but also to share her extensive love and knowledge of Galicia.

“Fantastic Property. Extremely Helpful Owners.”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Catro Faros is a fantastic villa with wonderful views in a great spot. It's easily accessible to the many wonderful places to visit and the beautiful coast of Galicia. The owners were always very quick and thorough with their communications and helpful with so many other things we needed whilst staying, such as excursions and babysitting. We asked about hire of a table tennis table for our stay and they provided one for us. This is a great place to stay.

“Wonderful house with amazing views”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Catro Faros really lived up to expectations and all the previous reviews. Beautiful modern house with lots of room for extended family to spread out and get some space when they needed it and space together to eat and chat when we were all together. Kitchen was a tad small for us as we had 5 keen cooks in our party but all the equipment was there to help us make some wonderful bbq and make the most of the food from the local market.
Pool is great - good size and with spectacular views out to the sea.
Casa Zulema opposite was a good restaurant - great seafood and good for when you are late back or too tired to cook.
Patricia was very helpful - thank you for helping when we managed to lock our selves out of the front door.
