We live, live and work with our two children on a former potato finca in the green north of the island above the village of Tamargada in a high valley at 600m altitude in a dreamlike, partly terraced location overlooking the hill chain and the sea. The house is surrounded by year-round green vegetation and surrounded by trees, plants, shrubs and animals.

The space
We rent a guest apartment (2 rooms: 18 & 13 sqm) with double bed and sofa bed, sitting area, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, private bathroom with shower and toilet), which are located in the side wing of the house with separate entrance, to families (children welcome), family-friendly nature lovers and hikers, as well as alone or for two travelers. 4 people can easily be accommodated there.
The catering takes place independently and we have dispensed with TV sets or telephones in the rooms, but there is a lot of nature and a wide range of books, games, views, nature and fresh air.
There are no electricity or transmission poles in the immediate vicinity and at night, when everything is asleep and no one needs it, the internet is off.
The power supply is provided entirely by solar energy, boiled and showered, is supplied with gas.
Should it get a little fresher in the evening, the guest accommodation has a fireplace, which is quickly heated up.

Other things to note
If you want to spend a relaxing holiday on the island and be mobile, it is recommended to rent a car with which the island can be easily explored and discovered
The house can be reached from the main road via a private and hiking trail along rocks and through the forest. As it is partly uneven and shady, it is not advisable to use a normal car to drive down the slope to the house (1.6 km).
The car can be parked at the top of the road and we will pick you up with your luggage and bring you up again.
Sounds adventurous and it is.
If you don't want to rent a car, we'll be happy to pick you up from the (flight,-)port for a fee and bring you back there.
Mild in winter, not too hot in summer and a moderate climate all year round. La Gomera, as in all the Canary Islands, has a very mild climate all year round, with temperatures varying minimally throughout the year.
This is caused by the Northeast Passat and a branch of the Canary River, which ensures almost uniform temperatures throughout the year (15-22 degrees).
However, it is also necessary to take into account the climate zones on the island.
It may well be cloudy and rainy in the north, with bright blue skies and the sun shining in the south at the same time. In December, January and February it can get really fresh and cool for Canarian conditions. Never below freezing but around 8-10 degrees and/of windy.. During this time we heat the ovens and make ourselves comfortable before.

Location

Vallehermoso, Canarias, Spain

There is no direct and immediate neighborhood, so you can spend a quiet holiday and relaxing days here. However, it may be that when you go for a walk, you occasionally meet one of our two donkeys, a cat or a chicken, who walk freely around the grounds.
So you hear a iah or Kikeriki again and again throughout the day.
In addition, there are 3 cats living outside, frogs (which you can only hear when it rains and they greet the same quaking) and different free and local bird species, such as the Kanarenzilbzalb or the laurel pigeon.
Anyone who has read our reviews will get a good impression of how it is here with us.
In the surrounding area there are some restaurants that offer Gomer cuisine.
The nearest major locations are:
Agulo (6km), Hermigua (10km), Vallehermoso (15km).
The Valle Gran Rey is about 41km (about 1 hr drive)
