A delightfully bright and airy place to stay. Situated in a beautiful river valley, surrounded by orchards with a cosy homely feel.
Originally built as a Tai Chi studio, the space is light and airy, built using local chestnut, it has recently been converted into a self contained cottage. The living room has a wood-burning stove and heats up the space incredibly quickly. The toilet and shower are stocked with soft towels, toiletries and other bits and bobs. Hand-made steps take you up to the cosy bed which is up on a small mezzanine in the apex of the roof and has a nest-like feel, where there is a shelf with reading lamp, books and of course some fairy lights :-). The kitchen is fully equipped for a simple breakfast or for a gourmet meal & I've left a few of my favourite cook books for you to enjoy. There is a dining area, plus the patio has a table and four chairs, where you can eat under the shade of the fig tree. A BBQ is also there for your use.
There are many beautiful beaches within a 5 minute drive from us, amazing cliff walks & the most northerly point of Spain is a 15 minute drive away. Plus much, much more...
The cottage is in our garden, with it's own patio, BBQ, and parking. You will also have access to the whole garden and other communal areas. We have planted an orchard this year and have a lovely veg garden you can pick from when in season.

I've lived in Ortigueira for just over 18 months with my partner John, we first visited the area 4 years ago and fell madly in love with the landscape, the tranquility and the Rias - they're so beautiful. The coastline and it's endless empty beaches are a real treat as is the wildlife.
Over the last few months we've been converting the Garden Tai Chi studio into a rental cottage which has been lots of fun! It's now ready and we are both looking forward to meeting new people and sharing this magical part of the world.
My fave things to do are:
~ Create! I trained in Fine Art nearly twenty years ago and from there developed a career in creative marketing and product design. Now, I'm revisiting my training and hope to produce some work which inspires.
~ Outdoors. Well there's lots of outdoors here, I like to get up early and go for a run, then there's walks and bike rides and of course there the beaches! I like to be outdoors a lot.
~ Eat & Drink. I love good wine (I like ok wine too) and food, lots of it! (Hence the running) I'm not a natural cook, but I'm a great recipe book cook - I love to cook! I love to cook new dishes.
~ Music. I like it a lot.
~ Laugh. I am delighted to say that I do have a tendency to be as daft as a brush, I like to laugh & joke.
