    La Palma is such a beautiful un touristy Island with so many beautiful walks, forests and beaches! The nearest beach is an 8 minute drive. There is also a bus stop a minutes walk away. We live in the sunniest side of the island. We can recommend nice places to visit or walk!

  • Accommodation


    Our house is a 2 bedroom with a bathroom, living room and kitchen. You will sleep in an outhouse room we have done up which is very basic containing a comfortable double bed, and we will run an extension cable to the bedroom for electricity . There is currently no working shower but we have hot water and a bath.

    We eat all food such as vegetarian dishes, chicken, mince, soups, curry, stews, quiche, salad etc. You will be welcome to eat with us.

    There is a top vegetable garden and another lower garden with many orange trees in it. We have a large roof terrace you can relax and enjoy the sunset on. This is a property we are renting and we are slowly doing bits to it to make it a nicer space to live in.

    The older two children Elsie and Felix (4 and 6) are at school and I am at home with the baby (Ted) in the day who is 1. My husband is a carpenter and very busy with work at the moment. We also have a friendly cat who mostly spends her time outdoors.
