Contemporary Ocean Retreat
Contemporary Ocean Retreat is an architect designed linear wooden structure close to the beach resort of Baiona in Galicia, northwestern Spain. Situated on a hillside plot in a secluded, lush garden overlooking the Cies Islands the property offers spectacular views. It is ideal for relaxation as well as Spanish / English language homestays. The retreat is perfect for two: the connecting-room between bedroom and living room has an intercommunicating door for privacy. Large picture windows in the open study / living/ dining area (with a 360º rotating Cocoon designer fireplace) and in the bedroom flood the rooms with natural light and allow the boundaries between inside and outside to disappear. In fine weather, the wooden decks with lounge and dining area become the second living room.
