Casa Eliseo

The Canary IslandsLa Gomera › Alajeró

A charming detached cottage with a large terrace, set on the edge of a small hill village halfway between the National Park and the south coast.

Situated at an altitude of approximately 700 metres above sea level, roughly halfway between the small south coast resort of Playa de Santiago and the Garajonay National Park in the centre of the island, the sleepy village of Alajeró is an ideal location for those who like to divide their time between the coast and the mountains. Keen walkers will find some excellent terrain right on their doorstep as well as being just a short drive from the start of the National Park, whilst Playa de Santiago is just 9 km away (approx. 15 minutes by car) and is considered one of the sunniest places on the island.

Roughly 100 years old, Casa Eliseo is a detached house in a peaceful setting on the edge of the village, but within easy walking distance of its small mini-markets and its few traditional local bars and restaurants, so whilst we include a hire car in the cost of your holiday here to help you explore the island, you don't necessarily have to drive to go out for a meal.

The single-storey house retains many traditional features, such as the pitched wooden ceilings and recessed Canarian windows, which lend the interiors plenty of rustic charm, especially in the kitchen with its exposed natural stone wall and long dining table. There are two bedrooms, both with twin beds, and a separate living room with the option of sleeping a fifth person on the sofa bed. There are also two shower rooms with WC, although one of these can only be accessed externally from the terrace (this room also contains a washing machine). WiFi is available free of charge.

A paved terrace runs the length of the house and offers lovely countryside views across terraced fields, orchards and the scattered houses of the village down towards the distant ocean; partially shaded by an large tree this is the perfect spot for relaxing in a deck chair and admiring the panorama. There is another outside sitting area in an almond-tree filled courtyard at the back of the house, perfect on windier days, which is where you will also find the brick-built barbecue for dining al fresco.

In our opinion, Casa Eliseo is ideally suited for couples and families seeking a more rural location on La Gomera without being too isolated.
