Allariz is a beautiful historic village in the heart of Galicia. The village itself and the surrounding countryside with its walks along the river and through the forests of oak and chestnut make it a great relaxing destination. Nearby Ourense (22kms by car and with regular local bus service from Allariz) is famous for its hot springs. Santiago de Compostela, the end point of Saint James's Way, is an hour away by car or just 30 minutes by fast train from Ourense. The stunning scenery of the Spanish wine area Ribeira Sacra and that of the Douro valley in Portugal are both just an hours drive away. Porto is two hours. In front of the house is the International Festival Garden which is open from May to October with a seperate competition theme each year.
From the apartment it is just five minutes walk to the heart of historic Allariz with its cobble stone streets, medieval churches and monastery. Some of the historic buildings now house outlet shops of some of the best Spanish fashion names. There is a wide choice of restaurants including three of an international standard, wine bars and cafes. There are five museums in Allariz but, unfortunately no information in English. However the Toy Museum and the Fashion Museum are pretty much self explanatory and very interesting.
On the 1st and 15th of each month the square in front of the monastery has a traditional country market. There are various parks along the river, including one with indoor and outdoor swimming pools. There are tennis courts at the sport's centre and horse riding at the stables next door.
