Comfortable and spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at "El Ciprés". The property is very comfortable and has plenty of space. We particularly enjoyed the bright conservatory that has lovely views to the west. Perfect for watching the sunsets.

The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything needed for preparing meals. We enjoyed making a fire in the evening and relaxing in the lounge.

The location of the property is also excellent. There are many walks within easy reach, including a super hike from St Nicolas (5 minutes drive away) up to the lava fields.The coast is also close by as are the local towns of El Paso and Los Llanos. The National Park is just past El Paso where there are many more hiking options.

There are a number of guides and books in the property although these were all in German. Maybe a few in English would be helpful to non German speaking clients.

All in all we would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to stay on La Palma.

Wohlfühlen in alten Mauern

  • 5 of 5

Unser Urlaub in der historischen Finca El Cypres war sehr schön. Wir haben uns ausgesprochen wohlgefühlt in diesem wunderschönen alten Landhaus. Der Kontakt mit den Eignern, dem Verwalter und auch mit der Ansprechpartnerin vor Ort war sehr gut und völlig unkompliziert. Nochmals vielen Dank an alle!

Gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Trotz vieler Reisen zu anderen Zielen zieht es uns immer wieder nach La Palma. Wir haben auf der Insel bereits sehr schöne Ferienhäuser gemietet, aber der zurückliegende dreiwöchige Aufenthalt in der Finca hat uns so gut gefallen, dass wir dort bereits jetzt einen weiteren Urlaub im kommenden Jahr einplanen.

Das Haus ist bestens ausgestattet, die Lage auf der sonnenverwöhnten Westseite La Palmas ausgezeichnet und der Ausblick einfach wunderschön. Der Wintergarten ist toll und ermöglicht es, auch in der kühleren Jahreszeit oder bei starkem Wind geschützt im "Freien" zu sitzen.

Hausverwaltung und Vermieter sind problemlos zu kontaktieren, bei kleineren Unzulänglichkeiten ist man sofort um Abhilfe bemüht.

Alles gute mit den neuen Besitzern

  • 3 of 5

Wir haben das Haus so vorgefunden, wie es hier beschrieben wird. Wunderschön, toller Ausblick...4 Terrassen zum Wechseln je nach Sonne und Wind und der goldwerte Wintergarten. Herrlich.....Die alte Cypresse ( Die hauptverantwortlich für den Charm des Grundstücks ist, die großen Palmen, die wunderschöne Küche mit Ausgang zur Terrasse...!!! Aber: wer gerne nach einer anstrengenden Wanderung duscht, wird hier nicht belohnt, der Wasserdruck ist sehr gering. Bequeme Sitzgelegenheiten sind leider rar und das Bett bedarf neuer Matratzen. Als Samstag die neuen Besitzer plötzlich im Garten standen war uns klar, warum nichts mehr gemacht wurde. Wir wünschen dem wunderschönen alten Haus und den Bäumen viel Glück mit den neuen Besitzern und hoffen dann doch auf Fingerspitzengefühl beim Umgang mit der ursprünglichen Natur des Gartens und bei der Renovierung des Hauses. Eine viele Jahre alte Cypresse hat mehr Charm als ein Pool!!!!

Relaxen leicht gemacht!

  • 5 of 5

Die Angaben im Inserat sind absolut korrekt. Alle Formalitäten mit unserem Vermieter im Vorfeld unserer Anreise waren schnell, zuverlässig, zuvorkommend und sehr unkompliziert. Schlichtweg perfekt. Auch vor Ort wurden wurden wir ganz prima betreut.

Die Lage der Finca ist optimal, denn wir konnten wunderbar -ohne viel Zeit investieren zu müssen- die zentral gelegenen Wanderreviere anfahren. Im nächsten Ort ist ein riesiger Supermakt, der keine Wünsche offen lässt. Schnell und unkompliziert ist man aber auch auf der Ostseite von La Palma oder im Westen eben mal ans Meer nach Puerto de Tazacorte oder Puerto Naos runtergefahren, um einen Sonnenuntergang im Strandrestaurant zu genießen. Ein Katzensprung ist es auch nach Tazacorte, um sich im Carpe Diem nach allen Regeln der Kunst bekochen zu lassen.

Die Finca war sehr geräumig, sauber und sehr gepflegt. Die Küche war perfekt eingerichtet - wirklich an alles wurde gedacht. Die verschiedenen vorhandenen Terrassen garantieren zu jeder Tageszeit ein Sonnenplätzchen, enweder mit einem Blick in die Berge oder aufs Meer. Wir haben uns in der Finca sehr wohl gefühlt und können sie guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen.

Traumurlaub im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Die Beschreibung des Ferienhauses ist eher noch untertrieben,denn wenn man ankommt ist die Begeisterung groß.Alles ist wunderschön und sehr gemütlich.Mehrere Terrassen zur Auswahl,der Wintergarten...perfekt.

Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Das Haus hat eine ideale Lage für Ausflüge in alle Regionen der Insel,lädt aber auch zum ausgiebigen Verweilen ein um aufs Meer zu schauen und täglich sehr unterschiedliche Wolkenformationen beim Sonnenuntergang zu beobachten.

Das Haus in absolut ruhiger Lage kann man nur als sehr positiv empfehlen.

Most of the beaches there are free showers.

The way the largest city on the island, Los Llanos the Aridane, takes about 10 minutes by car. Here you will find everything you would expect from a small town: Several large supermarkets, various specialty stores (eg also fish.), Pharmacies, restaurants, cafes and a beautiful central plaza with many colonial buildings. In Los Llanos there are also a market, a regular flea market and always small events.

Just as quickly, but it is also on the caldera, the great volcanic massif, which dominates the center of the island, and where there are numerous walking tours are conducted when needed, by well-trained leaders for a small fee.

To the east, across the central ridge of the mountains, the trail leads to the historic capital Santa Cruz de La Palma, where the quaint town center and numerous historic buildings await your visit. In the port of Santa Cruz also place regularly at the large cruise ships.

Those wishing to explore the north of the island, leaving the Aridanetal by the Barranco de Angustias, on the Mirador del Time, where you can enjoy a fantastic view over the entire Aridanetal, and circled by this route the whole island. The tour takes you first to Punta Gorda, where a fork in the path. From there you can see the island on the lower route at the foot of the Massif Caldera circle with new opportunities to side trips to the coast, or the route up to the highest point of the island, the Roque de los Muchachos choose. For both routes you should allow enough time because the track is good fixed, but often steep and winding, but really spectacular.

No matter what you want to explore the island, the Finca El Cipres' is an ideal base for your holiday on Isla Bonita.
