Los Robles (The Oaks) is a single-storey house in the tiny hamlet of Rasacadería, in the verdant and mountainous area of natural beauty called Cotobade (Lands of the Abbot), inland from Pontevedra.

 

It is the last house in the village, where the tarmac road gives way to a mountain track and it sits on a three-tiered landscaped slope, all planted with mature bushes. The backdrop to the house are the oaks which give the place its name.

 

The house – or bungalow – has the large, landscaped garden of another house to the south (behind some of the oak trees) but on all other sides is open to the countryside. And to views. Its best feature is the bougainvillea-framed front terrace-cum-porch, which faces the setting sun in the west and gives a view of the sea several kilometres away in the distance, over the hills. Not to mention beautiful sunsets. Another lovely feature is the shady spot under the trees to the rear of the house.

 

The house was built only 12 years ago but in traditional style, with a stone façade. It has both electricity and water.

 

Accommodation (105m2) comprises a sitting room to the left of the entrance, a dining area to the right, a kitchen, a bathroom with shower and bath, three bedrooms (1 double), and a separate WC and sink. With the bed-settee in the sitting room, it can sleep 5 or 6 people.
