Tijarafe House Rental Photos and Description

comfortable, sleeps 4, large sunny terrace, fire place

We welcome you to a dream vacation in our holiday house on La Palma. Enjoy the magnificent panorama view over the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on the sunny Westside of the island. The finca is situated absolutely secluded and surrounded by nature. The house is built in traditional canarian style and combines the harmonic ambiance of the wooden pitched roofs with comfort and luxury. Relax under the pavilion of the sunny terrace surrounded by a sea of flowers. Enjoy your char-grilled food from the brick built barbecue. The holiday house is located on a 12,000 m2 bio finca with almond, avocado, palm trees and beautiful endemic plants. You can start most impressive hiking tours directly from here. We live close by and are happy to offer friendly service and advice in English if needed. The next beach is only 20 minutes away in Tazacorte.

The house is situated absolutely secluded about 100 meters away from the next neighbor. On 100 m² it offers ample space with 2 bedrooms, a large living room, a well equipped modern kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Large panoramic windows provide undisturbed views over the Atlantic ocean. The spacious terrace with large table, chairs and two reclining chairs with cushions offers our guests wonderful panoramic views and stunning sunsets. Living room and bathrooms are equipped with floor heating for the cooler days of the year. You can also enjoy the cozy fire place in the living room. There is satellite TV, microwave, telephone and washer.

Some of the most beautiful marked walking routes of La Palma are accessible on foot from the house. You can hike down the king’s path to the harbor of Tazacorte or climb up along the edge of the El Time to the Torre del Time with breathtaking views into the Caldera crater. One highlight for the ambitious hiker is the tour from the Roque de Los Muchachos which you can walk directly to the house (5 ½ hours). You can go shopping directly in the small village of La Punta (5 minutes by car); the “second capital” of the island, Los Llanos is only a 25 minutes drive away. The next beach is 20 minutes away in Tazacorte, where you can also enjoy the local restaurants for authentic Spanish cuisine and fresh fish.

Lovely house in a beautiful setting on La Palma

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the house, the layout of which is helpfully included in the details for the property. The surroundings: garden and terrace areas were larger than we expected, and provided plenty of outdoor furniture. The natural environment is very relaxing.

The owners, Peter and Christine, are very welcoming and are willing and able to help you with advice and recommendations. We were left a delicious selection of local produce to welcome us, which we enjoyed very much.

The main bedroom and living areas are built very well, in a characteristic Canarian style (very nice wooden roof/ceiling), and with modern conveniences. Lots of 'French windows' allow access to the outside if you wish, comfortable furniture in the living room and a well-equipped kitchen make it feel like a home.

There is even under floor heating in the main living area and a wood-burning stove for heat if needed – we did not need this in September.

The house is located at about 700m above sea level, so you have a nice view out to sea towards the west and north-west. On clear evenings you will have a great view of the night sky - there is a telescope in the house. La Palma is well-known for its good astronomical viewing conditions, when there is no cloud, so take some time to look outside at night.

Some nice walks are just a step away out of the front door, including the fantastic route to the top of the island, El Roque de los Muchachos. It is also about a 30 minute walk from the Mirador El Time cafe, which must be a cafe with one of the best views ever, and a very friendly, English speaking barman.

Even closer to the house is a path to the Mirador de las Cabezadas, which gives a magnificent view over the Barranco de las Angustias. This can be done as a pre- or post-dinner stroll, whilst there is still light.

The island as a whole is well-known for its walking, and most routes are very well marked. You will need a hire car, but these are easily available.

We really enjoyed our holiday in La Palma, and especially in this very nice house. We highly recommend it

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found the property as described, clean and well appointed, beautifully quiet and peaceful with a panoramic view over the Atlanitic and the surrounding hills.

The owners are friendly and helpful with plenty of local knowledge but not intrusive. They can supply fresh eggs from "happy hens" which made our breakfasts a special treat. We arrived to a much appreciated welcoming gift of local produce (delicious home made jam included).

Our experience whilst touring was that this part of the island had the best weather with stunning sunsets best enjoyed from the wind free terrace with gin and tonic in hand. Perfect!

Our hosts indicated several walks from the door which took us to the best views on the island.

For a relaxed stay in a beautiful situation with delightful hosts we would thoroughly recommend the Villa Ricardo.

Klasse Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Moment an fühlten wir uns sehr wohl. Die sehr ruhige Lage, der Blick zum Atlantik und die stilvolle Einrichtung der Finca machten unseren Aufenthalt auf La Palma zu einem unvergesslichen Urlaub. Durch die zentrale Lage des Hauses war es problemlos möglich, mit dem Auto die Insel zu erkunden. Sehr zu empfehlen für Urlauber die Ruhe suchen und sich für die Schönheit der Natur begeistern können!

Vielen Dank!!!

Heerlijk huis!

  • 5 of 5

Wij zijn net terug van een week op la Palma in dit heerlijk huis!

Het huis ligt prachtig en heeft werkelijk alles wat je nodig hebt op vakantie.

Ook het zwembadje is erg fijn om even in af te koelen als je bij het huis verblijft.

Peter is erg vriendelijk en wil overal mee helpen.

Wij hebben o.a. gewandeld, gedoken en met de auto het hele eiland verkend.

Op een klein half uurtje rijden van het huis ligt los Llanos, wat wij een erg leuk dorpje vonden om even te winkelen, wat te drinken, of lekker te eten.

Een huurauto is wel aan te raden (sowieso op het eiland)!

Kortom: het huis is echt een aanrader voor een verblijf op la Palma.

The holiday house is located on the sunny Westside at 650 m altitude. The next village is Tijarafe, a very rural and peaceful place. The area around the finca is characterized by overgrown gardens of charming old abandoned farm houses, myriads of wild flowers and endemic plants. The magnificent blossom of the almond trees during January and February is famous. A secluded lookout over the Caldera and the harbor of Tazacorte is only a short walking distance from the house; a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. Legend has it that this is the place where the men of the last king of the original inhabitants Tanausu saw the arrival of Spanish fleet – the place is marked with petroglyph stone carvings.
