A Aldea Da Bouza, Ribadumia

Ribadumia is a municipality in the parish of Barrantes in the heart of Albarino wine growing country in the Rias Baixas. A Aldea Da Bouza is just one of its many little villages set amongst vineyards and woods.

A very peaceful spot, the nearest shop is 3.6 km and bar and restaurant at 2 km. The church, originally Romanesque, is worth a look.

Bodegas are dotted all over the place, some quite humble affairs, others much more sophisticated. Many are open to visitors.

Nearby Barrantes has several bars and restaurants and the special "furanchos" (privately owned homes which at certain times of the year open up as restaurants).

The delightful old town and port of Cambados, capital of the Albarino area, is seven kilometres away, and with a covered market and two weekly markets should provide all you need in the way of shopping.

The fish market at the busy resort of Sanxenxo is highly recommended.
