About the property

Relax Suite single with private sauna in the old stone house

El Sitio, the town in the middle of the Sanctuary of the Sanctuary Sancho lovingly designed and built by the two artists Dietmar and Natan Teutsch is inspired by Cesar Manrique. Nature makes art - art fits into nature.

Carefully built into the rock, you can feel security as in a cave and, at the same time, large round windows and the special position allow panoramic views of the vineyard, the fragrant pine forests and the endless Atlantic. Flowing transitions from inside and outside create a feeling part of nature.

Awaken your senses and feel freedom above the clouds of La Palma.

Natural shower of basalt stones and beach stone mosaics, warmer

Terraced floor and round shaped river bed gravel

Access to the pool area over the vertical stone gardens with fragrant herbs and endemic plants.

Walks in the vineyard and olive grove

Apple and walnut trees in the old Barranco / riverbed

Fragrant citrus fruits and herb gardens

The smell and the silence emphasize the unspoiltness, the originality of nature. Discover their immediate surroundings and sleep happily under the most beautiful stars of Europe.

Directly from El Sitio you can go hiking and enjoy impressive walks, hikes or mountain bike tours through the almond blossom landscape and the lush vineyards.

Part of the island culture and respectful dealing with nature:

In loving handwork we produce a first class red wine with the support of the successful wine producer Don Angel. Our foundations are the water terraces in the best sunshine and ancient vines. What today sounds so self-evident, our predecessors have built up with great effort and preserved for centuries.

The terraces cover more than 1. 380m. To the highest vineyard areas worldwide. Our vines bring low yield with high quality. The ecological management of our vineyard according to the requirements of the Consejo Regulador de Agricultura Ecológica (CRAE) is a logical consequence. In this way, we make a small contribution to the preservation of the agricultural structures on La Palma.

Not only for ourselves, but also as guests, we want to make the exceptional peace and beauty of our estate accessible. We work with great passion and with the full support of our palmy neighbors and friends. Only in this way will you be able to share this unique place with an experience of nature, movement, recreation, relaxation, enjoyment and wellness.

In 2014, we bottled 260 bottles of completely hand-picked Listán Prieto grapes exclusively for our guests. Enjoy a relaxing hiking or bathing day with a refined glass of our in-house red wine.

Harvesting & Enjoyment:

The vineyard blooms and grows practically all year round. While from the middle of January to the beginning of March, the almond and fruit blossom season impressed, the first fruits begin to mature in April / May. There are apricots, figs, lemons, oranges, peaches, plums, apples, pears, strawberries and of course the sugar-free grapes. You can use our fruit trees until November. From November to December, the chestnut trees (chestnuts) are waiting for you to be harvested.

A private herbal garden provides for year-round tasty ingredients in the kitchen.

Invitation to relax and take a deep breath:

Health Energy Massage

Hawaiian Lomi Lomi

Breuss massage

Enjoy your private energy massage or a yoga class by Karin Sulzbach at the Hacienda!

Guided walks:

We will be happy to provide you with experienced guides who will be able to show you the most beautiful walks on La Palma. Our hikes lead us through the mystic laurel forests, to the sacred kite trees, through mysterious gorges, to the bizarre crater rim and to the sea. The highlight is the round trip through the impressive world inside the world's largest erosion crater, the Caldera de Taburiente, the home of the last king of the Guanches. Again and again we will encounter the traces of the native inhabitants. La Palma is a very powerful volcanic island that touches our hearts and appeals to all senses. An experience of a special kind.

Purchasing service:

On request, we fill your refrigerator before arrival - enjoy the first meal without shopping stress! (Included)

Superb property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, beautiful property with outside shower and sauna. Very quiet, a perfect getaway. Lovely complimentary bottle of wine, homemade almond butter, very yummy. Sunset and Star gazing from the hot tub (extra cost and needs booking) was spectacular. Just a note it’s only one big bedroom not two, other beds are in lounge/kitchen area, great for star gazing though. Really kind and helpful staff. Property is very remote, best to get sat nav coordinates to find it! Would highly recommend for a get away from it all holiday.

Exceptional surroundings enjoyed from a very well appointed accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

The holiday stay at El Sitio, La Hacienda, was superb in every way. It is situated within a forested environment at an elevation of about 1300 meters. We cherished each sunset from a remarkable vantage-the accommodation is located above the cloud level. Hiking opportunities were abundant and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful giving us up-to date information about them. Traveling to La Palma observatory was a special treat. The drive took about an hour on a modern two lane road that is notable for its many sharp curves. The accommodation itself is one to which we hope to return soon. It is modern, well appointed and spacious. It also has an outdoor shower and sauna. The complimentary bottle of wine produced at the owner's vineyard was a special treat. The accommodation and environs were simply excellent value and most definitely worth the 2.5 hour drive from the Santa Cruz de La Palma airport. As a bonus, stargazing is unparalleled.

Absolut top! Note 1+ mit Sternchen!

  • 5 of 5

Ich kann dieses Ferienhaus guten Gewissens zu 100% weiterempfehlen, denn ich war wirklich begeistert.

Wir waren im El Sitio untergebracht. Das Haus wurde (wie man dem ersten Eintrag im Gästebuch entnehmen konnte) im April 2015 zum ersten Mal vermietet, ist also noch sehr neu. Die Architektur ist gelungen und fügt sich durch die großen Fensterfronten und die runden Wände wundervoll in die Natur ein. Die Ausstattung ist durchgängig sehr hochwertig und gepflegt:

- individuelle, handgefertigte Holzmöbel (notwendig bei runden Wänden :) )

- an das Haus angeschlossene, private Sauna von einem deutschen Anbieter

- toller, sehr gut funktionierender Holzofen

- Induktionskochfeld

- Spülmaschine

- sämtliche notwendigen Küchenutensilien waren vorhanden und auch durchgängig hochwertige Markenartikel (z.B. Töpfe und Besteck von WMF)

- Dimmbares Licht

Die Terrasse vor dem Haus liegt auf der Südseite mit wunderbarem Blick auf den kanarischen Kiefernwald. Ebenfalls vor dem Haus befindet sich eine warme Regen-Außendusche, ein Kneipp-Schlauch, eine Eimerdusche sowie ein Kneippeimer. Dieser Duschbereich ist aus den warmen Natursteinen gebaut, die sich auf der gesamten Hacienda finden. Einfach toll! Nachts ist dieser Bereich noch mit indirektem Licht beleuchtet.

Natürlich gibt es auch einen Grill, Liegestühle, Sonnenschirm und Wäscheständer.

Was gibt es sonst noch zu der Hacienda im allgemeinen zu sagen?

- Pool. Wie das gesamte Areal ist auch der Pool sehr schon angelegt und man hat von dort einen wundervollen Blick auf das Meer oder auch die Wolken, die sich unterhalb der Hacienda vorbeischieben

- Ein Highlight ist das Hot Tub. Also ein hölzerner Badezuber, der mit Holzofen beheizt wird. Wir haben uns dann in den Zuber gesetzt, kurz bevor die Sonne unterging und konnten dann bei einem Glas Wein die Sterne beobachten.

- Sterne lassen sich super beobachten, da die Hacienda ja ziemlich weit oben liegt. Es gibt ein Teleskop, welches die Besucher benutzen können.

- Es gibt eine eigene Quelle, an welcher man sich immer frisches Wasser holen kann.

- Die gesamte Anlage ist super gepflegt und durch und durch liebevoll gestaltet. Als Highlight wird Wein angebaut, den wir auch probieren durften. Sehr lecker!

Abschließend noch ein Wort zum Service. Daumen hoch! Benjamin hat uns direkt bei Ankunft sehr freundlich begrüßt, uns alles erklärt und war auch während des Urlaubs immer für uns da, wenn wir Fragen hatten. Vielen Dank dafür!

Drei Worte zu unserem Urlaub: ES WAR TOLL

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für sehr gute Bewertung! Besonders gefreut haben wir uns über die genauen Beschreibungen der Details die Euch so gut gefallen haben. Übrigens ab März 2017 wird es für El Sitio noch eine kleine Erweiterung mit einem zusätzlichen Schlafzimmer geben. Das Schlafzimmer ist direkt mit einer Tür verbunden und als Höhle in den Berg integriert. Es verfügt über ein Doppelbett sodass zukünftig bis zu 4 Personen im Haus wohnen können. In den etwas heißeren Sommermonaten wird der Raum im Berg angenehm gekühlt sein. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen und senden Sonnige Grüße von La Palma Euer Hacienda Team

Relaxen auf hohen Niveau!!!

  • 5 of 5

Unglaublich schön und ruhig gelegen. Für uns nach überstandener Erkältung und noch leicht angeschlagen genau der richtige Ort um sich zu erholen. Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Christian und dem ganzen Team begrüßt. Nach ausführlicher Einweisung in die Unterkunft/ Sauna absolut entspannte Tage genossen die durch nichts gestört wurden. Die private Sauna war für uns natürlich der perfekte Abschluss eines jeden Tages. Nur zur Info: die Dusche im Bad muss mit Fingerspitzen Gefühl eingestellt werden, da der Bereich zwischen kalt und sehr heiss ziemlich klein ist!!

Ansonsten ist alles so was von schön und gepflegt ( Außenanlagen/Pool) man möchte gar nicht mehr weg!

Wir wollen auf jeden Fall wieder kommen!!

Liebe Grüße an das Hacienda Team

Barbara & Markus aus München
