The Canary Island of La Gomera, with a nearly circular base, is the second smallest island of the archipelago. It is also known as "Columbus Island", because it served Christopher Columbus as the last supply station on his journey to the Americas. La Gomera is ideal for those who want to enjoy our holiday accommodations on La Gomera with plenty of peace and relaxation. It’s a natural paradise with a unique landscape and an incredible variety of vegetation.
A "must visit" for your holidays on La Gomera is the Garajonay National Park. A prehistoric laurel forest typical of the Macaronesian region, which covered the entire tropical area millions of years ago. On La Gomera, the laurel forest has been preserved to this day thanks to its temperature. In 1986 it was named a World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO. Since 2011, La Gomera has also been a biosphere reserve to ensure the long-term preservation of this magical island and its inhabitants all of which you can experience in any of our holiday villas on La Gomera.
On la Gomera there is a positive interaction between man and nature which is reflected in the Valle Gran Rey. The beautiful green landscapes, the palm trees and the contrast with the white houses of the village, has made Valle Gran Rey one of the most important tourist destinations on the island for your holidays on La Gomera.
The viewpoint of Mirador de Abrante is particularly impressive. It is located at an altitude of 625 meters above sea level. From there you have wonderful views of the green countryside, the houses of Agulo, the blue ocean and the island of Tenerife. The viewpoint owes its impressive modern design to the architect José Luis Bermejo. The building is made of glass and a transparent platform that creates a sensation of being in the air for anyone who is courageous enough to dare.
La Gomera is particularly popular as a hiking destination. 650 km of hiking trails lead through ever-changing natural wonders. New landscapes and views of the Atlantic await at every turn you make; an experience you should not miss. Then, after a long hike, you can find peace and joy in some of our quiet country villas with private pool. With all the beauty on land, you should not forget what’s on the sea.
Take a boat trip and admire the rock formations from the sea. A highlight there is the natural monument "Los Órganos", a rock wall, which is naturally shaped like a collection of organ pipes. If you also see whales on this boat trip, this is not surprising: the sea section between La Gomera and Tenerife is their preferred habitat.
