If you have read the blogs and articles you may glean that we love to live here and cherish the small hamlet of Mer. It is a very rural setting in a farming community, but surprisingly only 5 minutes from Sober with its restaurant, 2 bars, 2 shops, a surgery and much more. Further 10 minutes will take you to Monforte de Lemos (19.000 inhabitants) with its delightful "Escorial of Monforte", pedestrianised shopping area, cafe's, bars and if you can stay up late discotheques and entertainment.
