Want somewhere peaceful and relaxing, this venue certainly offers. Beautiful pool and amazing views
This property is off the beaten track about 20 minutes from the nearest town. The roads of La Palma consist of many hairpin bends. We stayed in the El Mirador which has beautiful views out to sea and amazing views of the sun setting and the night sky full of stars. If you want to be away from the crowds , this is the place to go. Thank you to the staff , especially Christian who was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and things to do.
El Mirador. Magnificent panoramic vistas from the sitting_sleeping and deck areas. Amazing skies.
The smiling welcome from Christian settled us in comfortably after a long day travelling. The studio was intimate and we had all we needed. Sitting above the pool area is serene with superb views down to the sea_quite magical. The gardens were a surprise of colour and varied plants_quite magical_credit to Benjamin. The solitude broken by birdsong and the scuttle of small wall lizards in the sun_quite magical. We enjoyed a few good walks from the paths leading out from El Mirador. The profusion of colourful wild flowers along the roads and paths was a delightful surprise. And when the clouds swirled in above the cool green pine forests above our cottage the effect was quite mystical.
All-in-all we had a good and varied holiday. The peace and quiet. Exercise both walking and swimming. Buying local produce in the atmosphere of the mercadillo. Good to cook the local foods. Restaurants we visited were of high quality_quite often German operated. The scenery driving around the island is breath-taking. No straight roads_only hairpin bends. Nothing on the flat_only steep hills. All interesting and you get used to this after a day or so.
There was surprisingly little traffic and people around in April/May. Everything was elegantly understated. Very few things in life are perfect_ this place had a good shot at perfection.
Absolute high fidelity to description, simply unique
The property is really a "coup de coeur" , houses are all very cozy, extremely well equipped and comfortable. Stuff is friendly and available all time. We enjoyed the pool, the hot-tub under the stars and the house telescope. Far from any crowd (count 15-20 minutes to the closest village by car). Puntagorda is a very nice village. La Palma is the kingdom of trails and trekking, stargazing, nature, wild see and vulcanic beaches. We've been happy there, que viva La Hacienda!!!
Great, snug little cottage
El Mirador is compact but extremely well designed, very comfortable and makes the most of its space. There is a stunning view through the almonds, over the distance pines to the sea and clouds which made for great sunsets.
Christian and Benjamin were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, explaining what was availble and how things worked.
As the cottage is at 3,000 feet, it got chilly as the sun went down (early February). The wood burning stove made for cosy evenings.
The immediate surroundings are delightful and there is good walking right from the cottage. The upper terrace with the pool and telescope are a great asset.
It is worth stocking up on the way as it's a bit of a drive down to the nearest shops at Puntagorda or Las Tricias. The local restaurant, Kiosko Briesta, a couple of kilometres away is fine, but check the opening times.
We had a hugely enjoyable stay.

The Canarian winery Hacienda La Palma is located on the sunny west side of the island in an absolutely unique sole and quiet location above Punta Gorda. Breathe in crystal clear mountain air on medically optimal altitude 380 m asl 1 Due to the particular altitude and sheltered south-west exposure of the vineyard has an almost unique for La Palma Sun situation with fantastic views of the sea, the sun and the clouds.
