About this listing
Tucked away in Puntallana Old Town, our traditional Canarian cottage offers an escape to the country. It's on the main walking route round La Palma island, and has a small supermarket, museum, chemist and some cafe-bars close by!
This traditional Canarian cottage has high wooden ceilings and two terraces for sitting outside watching the world go by. There is one very large living/dining space, a new shower room with sink and toilet and a small, fully equipped kitchen, with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer. The bedroom has a double bed and fitted wardrobes, with a space over for storing luggage.
Guests have access to the whole house and two terraces. It is very private.
Interaction with guests
Our contact on the island will meet guests to give recommendations on walks, restaurants, and advice on making the best of your stay on the island. She will also help out with any emergencies.
The cottage lies in the historical part of old Puntallana, above the spring of San Juan (St. John), where in the old times the women did their washing. On the 24th of June a procession is held to this spring from the church.
The neighbourhood feels very rural, even though there are amenities close at hand, such as a supermarket, a bus route, a chemist, a few bars, a museum, a Saturday market and a health centre. There is a little promenade below the house for an evening stroll and also a beautiful old church up in the town. We are about a 10-15 minute drive from Playa Nogales, a wild and beautiful beach and about 20 minutes from the airport. At night you can hear the frogs' chorus!
We'd recommend hiring a car to get the best out of all that the island has to offer. However, guests can quite easily use the buses from a bus stop quite close to our house and there are taxis nearby. We are also on the main walking route around the island
Other things to note
There is a double sofabed in the living room, so a third person or couple could stay. Note that the walk down from where you park the car to the house is quite steep. Oh, and the jacaranda trees bloom in April/May - they are beautiful!
Please do not smoke inside the house. Ash trays are provided, and you are welcome to smoke on one of the terraces.

We are an English couple, who fell in love with La Palma over 20 years ago. We enjoy walking, eating out and just spending time pottering around! When we are not on the island, we are at home in West London, where we like spending time with our friends and family.
