A fantastic location over looking the Atlantic, with rolling Pine Hills off to the left! On the right and straight ahead, the small orange roofed building is the Bar and Grill with an outside patio right on the water. In the evening it is lit with fairy lights that extend over the white path that outlines the Atlantic. Notice the circular front entrance on the road to the left.
And this Regal Entrance leads us to the Parador…guarded by ancient walls on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other….also well protected by the animals within, and currents.
Having the opportunity to walk, we took the path on the right and headed uphill into town. Small city (at that time) but packed with fetching shops and a beautiful Church.
Coming back from the upper town, we were amazed with this wonderful distant view of “our” island! Limping down to the Bar and Grill, we chilled out with a local wine.
Still tired from the long walk, we naturally headed for the heated swimming pool with the soft Atlantic breeze as a bonus. We decided to eat in one of Baiona’s restaurants that eve.
Not our bedroom…although ours was lovely…and less expense. I figured in another 5 years, and with the Senior Savings, the 40% reduction would certainly be a benefit.
We could see why Christopher Columbus wanted to retire here.
That evening we walked over to the Bar & Grill, sat under the fairy-lights and toasted the fantastic view. And this was a “keeper”!
