History: The first maritime connections between The Canary Islands, Spain, Italy, the UK and Norway started in 1894 when the Norwegians were awarded a concession to start a shipping line between the countries, under the stewardship of Thomas Olsen, the father of Petter Olsen, the present owner of the villas complex.

In 1909 the family together with two local Gomerian investors created the company “La Lomada de Tecina” The local participants probably had identified substantial water resources and needed outside investors to create a local agribusiness based on tomatoes and bananas. Norwegian expertise in commercial shipping was also a key to the business. The villas where the factories of these agriculture activities.

Later these factories were changed into private leisure villas and gardens and now they have been deeply refurbished to offer our clients the highest and most attractive experience.

How to get to the villa: Access to La Gomera is by ferry from Los Christianos on Tenerife to San Sebastian.

Flights from mainland Europe arrive at both Tenerife North and South, but flights to La

Gomera come in from Tenerife North. Flight time from TFN is about 20 minutes. The

airport is located just beside the villas and is has an appearance of

modern traditional Canarian Style.

Cars are available for rental at the airport. We can book one for you on demand.

Internal transport:

La Gomera has a conical topography caused by its origins as a volcanic island. The roads

therefore display a radial pattern to the coast from the higher elevations. The road

network is well surfaced and cross The National Park and the protected areas. Driving time from San

Sebastian to Playa Santiago is about 25 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The listing for Casa Chica did not do it proud - it was wonderful. The pool was especially lovely - very private and fun due to its shape and depth. The garden was beautifully laid out with stunning views and the villa decorated in a very attractive manner. It was very clean and was well-maintained and any request we made was quickly accomodated. It was lovely too, to come in to a beautiful bowl of local fruits. I would not only recommend this property, I would go back. The island itself is exquisite, and Playa Santiago was really easy to get to - go through the tunnel for a simpler, less tortuous way down! - with great restaurants. Go on the boat, eat, drink, read, walk (or run as my husband and son did most days), and listen to the silence. Lovely. Small complaint was the flies, but no other insects.

Fabulous La Gomera villa, overlooking the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a stunning 5* experience. From the moment we made contact with the owners, we loved all aspects of the place. Set in its own grounds, with fantastic views across the ocean to Tenerife, the villa provides an excellent holiday base. Large rooms, all spotlessly clean, with comfortable furniture and stunning works of art. The 3 bedrooms sleep a total of six and each has an en-suite brand new luxury bathroom. We dined outside, often sitting on the verandah, with delicious food picked from the garden (avocadoes, bananas, oranges, grapefuit, lemons....). The beautiful infinity pool in the grounds, is a short walk and up some steps, but well worth it!

Peaceful and quiet, this holiday would suit anyone wanting to 'get away from it all'. We ate at local restaurants recommended by the owners, and also played tennis, squash and paddle tennis at the nearby Hotel Tecina. The villa is surrounded by the golf course - very quiet during our stay. The island is a walkers' paradise, and we loved the Garajonay National Park. We also enjoyed swimming in the sea, at the nearby black beaches, but made sure there were locals already in the water - as the tides can be very strong. This place is not for you if you are looking for lots of shops, entertainment or nightlife! However, if you love nature - hoopoes, geckos, birds of prey and owls - in an idyllic climate, then this may be just the place for you.

We definitely hope to return.

La Gomera is the closest you get to the Caribbean in Europe. A hideaway in the Atlantic west of the Canary Islands. A under-discovered gem perfect refuge for relax and regeneration. Its rugged beauty has protected it from mass tourism developments. A national park of preserved and protected ancient cloud forest in the north (17 protected areas) and sunny beaches in the south.

Airport (from Tenerife and Gran Canaria) and ferry access, comfortable climate (21 to 28C), welcoming population, part of Europe, European Time Zone (no jet lag), swimming, diving, sailing, trekking, extensive network of signposted hiking trails, biking, geotourism, MAY BE THE NICEST GOLF COURSE IN EUROPE, natural beaches, ocean views, diving, temperate and clean ocean with abundant marine life, focus on music and musicians (AIR STUDIOS La Gomera), focus on nutrition wellness and health, eco sensitive, relaxed and safe lifestyle-virtually no crime, first class medical and social services. ROMANTIC AND ECLECTIC

Other Activities: Botanical garden, eco activities, walks...

Golf: The villas are located just in the middle of the Tecina golf course. We can book your golf sessions and obtain special discounts.

Tecina is one of the most spectacular courses in Europe, occupying a sensational cliff top setting within a former banana plantation on the south side of the small island of La Gomera. Laid out by Martin Ebert when he was part of the Donald Steel design company, the course opened for play in 2003 and its 18 holes are laid out above ‘la lomada Tecina’.

Indeed, the fairways at Tecina are routed in a most ingenious way, slaloming down a hillside with a drop of over 500 feet between the first hole at the top and final hole at the bottom, next to the clubhouse.

Indigenous plants, shrubs and cacti have been planted over substantial swathes of the property and these extravagant botanical arrangements – along with wonderful views of the Atlantic and Mount Teide on nearby Tenerife – present a beautiful backdrop when playing at Tecina.

It’s not often a course can justifiably lay claim to possessing a trio of signature holes but Tecina certainly can and downhill shots played to the exposed greens at holes 4, 10 and 12 are golfing highlights during a round here that will live long in the memory.

The club hosted the Canary Islands Championships in 2005 and more recently, Welshman Rhys Davies claimed first prize in the inaugural Fred Olsen Challenge de España event on the European Challenge Tour in September 2009.
