Villa Valenca enjoys a fantastic village setting in Tomiño near the medieval towns of Tui, Valença do Minho and Vilanova de Cerveira and just a twenty-minute drive to beautiful beaches and historic landmarks.

Tomiño is a municipality in the province of Pontevedra in the autonomous community of Galicia, in Spain. It is situated in the comarca of O Baixo Miño. It is located on the Miño River. A market town with both a weekly outside and a very good covered market, little shops and supermarkets and other facilities, Tomiño lies in one of the most fertile areas in Spain on the border of Portugal.

Surrounded by vineyards, kiwi plantations and garden nurseries, it is just north of the Rio Minho dividing Spain from Portugal. Besides its main town centre, it is made up of several little parishes.  There are lovely river beaches along the Rio Minho and delightful walks along the many paths leading down to and along it. There are restaurants and bars in the town, but several others, belonging to the municipality are down near the river or along the main road that links Tui with A Guarda.

There are several local wine routes, especially dedicated to the most popular local wine, Albariño. Guests can drive up through the nearby vineyards of Bodegas Altos de Torona and get a panoramic view of the surrounding area. The gastronomy at Tomiño is unparalleled, with a delicious selection of fish, seafood and meat, guests will be spoilt for choice at every meal time!

While in Tomiño, guests may want to check out some of the restaurants that are a short walk away from Nueva Colina, including Taperia Época (1.2 mi), Restaurante Baixo Mino (0.1 mi), and cerveceria olala (0.1 mi). Looking for something to do in Tomiño? Corazon de Carballo (1.2 mi) is a popular attraction that is within walking distance of Nueva Colina. There are also a range of fabulous beaches at Baiona, Ramallosa, A Guarda or even Caminha in Portugal. The river beaches on Rio Mino are just three kilometres away from Tomiño.

There are many walking routes around Tomiño, including the Parque Natural de Monte Aloia with five signposted walks and the Monte Tetón not too far from the house. Guests can visit the prehistoric paintings and petroglyphs in Monte Tetón, and the Celtic site of Monte Tecla and museum above A Guarda. There are also four challenging courses within an hour's drive of Tomiño, as well as local markets on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Tomiño (Wednesday), Valença (Wednesday), and Tui (Thursday). There is also an antique market on the second Sunday of every month at Vilanova, just over the bridge into Portugal from Tomiño.

About the Island & Getting There

About Galicia

Like many parts of Spain, Galicia has its very own identity that has remained intact through its regional dialect and distinguishing culture. Although Galicia is recognised for its holy traditions, we urge budding tourists to also consider its astonishing green countryside & rivers and its UNESCO World Heritage sites. Occasionally you may even hear the gentle tootling of bagpipes, known locally as the Galician Gaita, along this northern corner of the Iberian Peninsula.

You're likely to fly into Santiago de Compostela, which is the capital of Galicia and is probably best known for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage and its route. Many of the travellers embark on this journey by foot and tend to be mesmerised by this fine city at the end of their trek. Casco Viejo, or the Old Town, is a good place to end or even start your holiday. This area of the city is blessed with markets, restaurants, bars and buildings from a bygone era. After exhausting yourself in the busyness of the city, take a day trip to Praia de Rodas. This small island, just off Vigo, has been noted as having some of the best beaches in the world. It has to be seen to be believed!

Galicia is divided into four key regions; A Coruña, Lugo, Ourense and our favourite – Pontevedra. A Galician proverb states that Pontevedra gives water to travellers. We firmly believe this to be true, as this particular part of Galicia has everything a traveller could need for an unforgettable experience and it almost feels like this City is constantly giving back. Whilst you holiday in Pontevedra you will realise that days are structured around mealtime. And why wouldn't they be? With some of the best seafood you will experience in Spain and the noteworthy Albariño wine, you may notice your jeans feeling a little tighter toward the end of your holiday. You will be glad to know that your waistline need not be a cause for concern though! Pontevedra is blessed with some of the best hiking trails, medieval monasteries, estuaries and valleys within Spain. Don't forget about the coastline either! Rarely you will you find so many empty beaches, so make the most of this privacy and just embrace the nature around you.

Galicia is still an unspoilt part of the world. It has everything a diverse group of friends & family need to have a glorious adventure.
