Our home

Our home is comfortable, clean, and spacious. It has a large kitchen with adjoining living/dining room. A deck overlooks a large fenced back yard that is private and has many trees, flowers and a garden. I love spending time in my home and having friends over, it is warm and inviting.

Property features

Who we are

  1. I'm an American ex-patriot. I came to Spain at 18 and have been here for almost 30 years. I own my own company and me and my wife Teresa (spanish) have 4 children 19, 17, 15 and 11.

    We have 3 small dogs (they sleep outside) and one cat (he sleeps wherever he pleases).

    This is our first time trying a home exchange program. I love the concept. It's cheaper, more exiting and you can stay longer than in a hotel.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a rural setting 3km. away from beautiful beaches. Baiona (3km.) is a seaside village with great sea-food restaurants, little shops and tapas bars, night life.

You can catch a boat out to the Cies islands (nature resurve - voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world).

This area is part of Galicia, with a strong celtic accent. The people are freandly and helpful. Of course they speak Spanish.

Vigo is 20 min. away (closest large town), Pontevedra is 30 min. away and Santiago de Compostela is an hour's drive (you can go by train from Vigo). It's as if time has stopped in Santiago at th 13th century. You must visit the cathedral, world famous for the pilgram's final stop (read Ken Follet's "Pillars of the earth").

The Portuguese border is 20min. away. There is no border and you can go back and forth whenever you wish. Northern Portugal is exiting: great food and wine, museums, beaches. Don't forget to go to Vilanove de Cerveira (quaint village), Viana de Costelo (a great mid-sized town with shpping center in the train station) and of course Oporto. You can visit all these places on the train (I highly recomend this).
