About the area where this property is located.
The Rías Baixas (Galician for "Lower Rias") are a part of Costa del Marisco facing the Atlantic Ocean in the southern part of Galicia. They consist of the southern part of the Province of Coruña and the entire Province of Pontevedra. To the South the Rias Baixas border the Portuguese coast, and ends at Cape Finisterre to the North. The area is famed for its natural beauty, its spectacular coastline and beaches, the famous seafood restaurants, the best white wine in Europe (claimed by some experts). The area is affluent, the cities are more cosmopolitan.
Just a few kilometers inland from the coast the landscape and architecture change. In these coastal ranges, the country is (although studded with vineyards) wilder, more pure and unspoiled.
There are the nature parks where one can walk for hours, Cies Islands, located in the mouth of the Ria de Vigo is such a park, also the nature/beach park of Illa de Arousa is stunningly beautiful. In February 2007 the British newspaper The Guardian chose the beach of Rodas, on the island of Monteagudo, as "the best beach in the world." Although the beaches are fantastic there is much more to see. The traditional, inland villages transmit for the most part an “old world” feeling. People are friendly, kind and patient here. In summer nearly every village, town and city has its own fiesta. Life is pleasant here.
Galicia is not only the most western part of Spain but also of continental Europe. Galicia is known as the emerald of Spain. In parts Galicia is mountainous in other parts hilly or nearly flat. The serene countryside is green and lush and spectacularly beautiful. Fields are surrounded by natural stone walls and trees. The seemingly endless forests and vineyards combined with pastures create a feeling of tranquility. Stress is an unknown word here. Our mighty rivers that get their water from thousands of lesser rivers and streams make their way to the ocean past our cities, villages, through mountains and countryside. Galicia is unique and will never fail to surprise the visitor. There are only few places in Europe where you can find wild horses, wild cows, wild boar, deer, wolves and bears roaming the country side.
No coastline in Europe can hold a candle to the 1.600 kilometer Galicia offers. This coastline is formed not only by great sandy grounds and steep cliffs, spectacular rock formations and white sand beaches but also by its exclusive geographic estuary-like formations called Rias. The unequalled white sand beaches vary from little secluded coves to long stretches of white sand; up to 9 km. Coastal temperatures are very different from those inland. On the coast one can grow oranges and lemons, a sign that frost is virtually unknown. Min temperature: 7 degrees Celsius. In summer temperatures can rise to well in the 30’s but not for very long periods. Several ancient cultures left their mark on Galicia such as the Celts and Romans which makes Galicia very interesting to explore. Beaches and country walks are too many to mention but are there to be discovered and enjoyed.
Our food is famous throughout Spain, beef, game and seafood are of the very best quality.
