In this issue, our expert explores this undiscovered Eden… in a story as refreshing as the region’s famed cider.

Between surf spots and the Camino de Santiago, Seán reports that this is the destination for adventurous expats wanting to settle into a local community. That’s you… our reader. And as Seán says, it won’t be long before this region generates the same buzz that its neighboring Portugal once did…
