Lovely old Canarian house situated in an idyllic spot overlooking the Atlantic.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful and romantic holiday - this is the place for you. Christian & Carola have created a beautiful garden full of palm trees, succulents and fascinating plants and there are plenty of sunny and shaded areas to sit and watch the sea, beautiful sunsets and spectacular rainbows. The farm has a wide range of exotic fruit trees and vegetables that you can buy, as well as eggs from a clutch of rare Canarian chickens. The house is fairly comfortable and well equipped with pretty locally-made plates & dishes. It has a large comfortable double bed in the main bedroom, which also had a balcony with views over the garden to the sea. The downsides are that there is no hot water supply in the kitchen (there is however a dishwasher) and though the over-bath shower has good hot water - if you are tall, the pitched roof means space is a little cramped.

The house is situated in the north west, which is the least populated but most beautiful area of the Island. The house is well situated for getting to the Caldera and there are some beautiful local walks, but it is a fair distance from any bars and restaurants (if you were thinking of walking to one - you wouldn’t be able to easily) and the very windy roads meant that we tended to eat out at lunchtime and cook at the house in the evenings.

Christian & Carola have created an amazingly beautiful life for themselves here and one that treads lightly on the planet, which should be respected.

Finally, the plants in this area are very special and very out of the ordinary - if you are a plant and nature lover you will be in heaven here. It should be pointed out that the garden is situated on the side of a deep ravine so the house would not not be ideal for very young children. It is on 2 levels externally so also not ideal if you have mobility problems.

This is a lovely old finca in a fantastic location overlooking cliffs and the sea.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday. The hosts were charming and the meal they cooked for us was the best of our stay. The scenery generally is stunning and the roads to Los Tilos and the Caldera good, if dramatic, for remarkable hikes. Swimming from the local beach needs very calm conditions, but we enjoyed safe swimming at Tazacorte.

All in all, highly recommended!

Excellent and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

One cannot write only about the finca and the farmhouse without mentioning, Garafia, and La Palma. It's a rugged, peaceful, natural paradise, but only for those travelers who love quiet and extreme natural beauty. The house is situated literally on one of the hiking trails that runs inside the barranco, so that hiking and walking are outside your door.

The house itself is spacious, three bedrooms and the bathroom above and the kitchen below.

The terraces / patios are lovely with jasmine everywhere and splendid views of the countryside and ocean. It's very private.

The hosts, Christian and Carola Blaser are very special people : gracious, kind & considerate.

They live next door, which is helpful if something needs repair or if you need advice. But mostly they will supply, upon request, the finest quality fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc., from their gardens and kitchens. And even cook you a fine meal !

All of La Palma is varied in its natural characteristics and all of it is beautiful. But no part is any more beautiful or peaceful than the location of this property.

Hemos pasado una semana maravillosa. Christian y Carola son muy buenos anfitriones. Muchas gracias!!

  • 5 of 5

La casa está muy bien equipada: cocina, baño, dos dormitorios, un saloncito y un patio con vista al mar , increíble a la hora del arardecer. La huerta de Christian rodea toda la casa y (si quieres) te provee cada día de fruta fresca, huevos, etc. Un privilegio.

Peaceful and quiet house, great and helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a 2 week holiday in this house and we loved it!

The owners Carola and Christian were very friendly and helpful. The house was convenient and clean, the beds were good, the kitchen was well equiped and even had a dishwasher. The bathroom was good as well, with a good shower, bath, toilet and bidet.

We ordered the breakfast one day and the dinner on another day. All very delicious and with all fresh ingredients from the garden or local ingredients.

This house is great for people who love a peaceful and quiet environment, we loved it!

The cats around the house made it feel like a home (and they were very well educated, they didn't come in the house or annoyed you at all. Very friendly animals!)

We hope to return here one day!

( Ligbad met douche erin, wc in de badkamer) Het huis heeftvanuit beide terrassen uitzicht op zee, en ook vanuit de grote slaapkamer . Van alle gemakken voorzien: oven, vaatwasser, TV, WiFi, houtkachel. Mooie tuin waar ook groente en kruiden wordt verbouwd. In de omgeving geen vertier, alleen ongerepte natuur met mooie wandelingen.

The finca (farmhouse) lies on the edge of the Barrancos Atajo (gorge) and offers a wonderful panoramic view of the coast and the pine forests of the mountains. From the house you can start directly on old footpaths, the most beautiful hikes and visit the prehistoric caves of Cueva del Agua. The walk to the sea is 30min. and leads to the natural beach Callejoncito around the house grow subtropical plants such as palms, dragon trees, olives, citrus, mangoes, papayas, guavas, almonds, figs and much more offered by the owner. We are happy to bake for an organic rye / spelled sourdough bread with almonds and own a delivery of fresh goat's milk / cheese, vegetables and fruits from the region. Once a week the fisherman Ramon delivers fresh sea fish.
