La Rambla de Castro is highlighted by its singular natural elements, as well as by its scientific interest donated by the canary palm woods proof of old vegetable formations. It also has many populations of catalogued protected species of native canary flora.
The first fortified constructions date from the XVI century and the main references are the : the Hacienda de Castro, the San Pedro Hermitage and the San Fernando Fort.
The water's always present on this protected landscape of La Rambla de Castro so it isn't strange to think that this is one of the greenest regions on this island.

"A lovely secluded place perfect for that quiet break"
The meeting place directions were clear and we had no problem finding it. The road down to the house was rather tricky and it took me a couple of days before I felt confident enough to tackle it at ni… More
Thank you very much for your comments. The sunrise in the summer is later than usual in Europe. We do not have so much difference from winter to summer. We cannot choose the TV channels. The satelite we get on the Canary Islands is the ASTRA and you can see all the channels that you get through ASTRA (germans, english, french, italian, arabian ...) But surely not all the channels that you have in your country. I am happy you could relax here. The house is, as you said, ideal for a quiet retreat.

"Great house with spectacular view"
We stayed 10 days with our children at the house. It is much nicer than you can see on the pictures. It is an old house that has completely been restaured, very modern. With the private access you are the only one that can go down with the car to the house. It is a quiet location. It is a very nice area to walk and see the Rambla de Castro. Irene received us. She is very kind and explained all to us. We loved to have some fruit, water and wine as a welcome gift. Nice house, nice region. We can recommend it.
