The local area has its own micro-climate, with mild temperatures both in winter and the summer, and despite its location in a valley is characterised by the absence of fog in what is a generally sunny location.

Its location is ideal for those who, in as few kilometres as possible, wish to explore the Rías Baixas, the historic town of Ourense or enjoy the many picturesque towns in Northern Portugal. Very close to our own village is the spa town of Mondariz Balneario with its late 19th century architecture, numerous neolithic archaeological sites, National Heritage sites, scenic viewpoints and recreational areas.
