The Canary Islands region

La Gomera is the second smallest of the seven islands which form the Canarian Archipelago. It is almost circular in shape, with an area of 369 km2. It is situated next to the island of Tenerife, separated by 28km at its closest point.

Geologically speaking, it is the oldest of the seven Canary Islands. Its last volcanic eruption took place two million years ago. This has given the island certain characteristics, mainly produced by erosion. This has created spectacular ravines and impressive peaks above the surface and coastal cliffs of singular beauty. At the centre of the island you find "Alto de Garajonay" the highest point of the island, ascending to 1.487 metres. The peak is named after the national park or "Parque Nacional de Garajonay", a protected area covering 11% of the island in an exuberant green carpet.

Valle Gran Rey

Guadá, is in the upper part of the valley, consisting of eleven hamlets. On the left side of the valley are Lomo del Balo, los Descansaderos, La Vizcaína, Higuera del Llano, el Hornillo and Chelé. On the right, you will find El Retamal, La Rinconada, Lomo del Moral, Las Sábilas and los Granados.

The cuisine of Valle Gran Rey conserves the traditional culinary essence, based fundamentally on the produce of the land and the sea.

The ingenuity of the locals, arising from their constant struggle with the environment has given us a unique culinary legacy, among other things.

"location, location, location!"

Apt. B was my home for almost five weeks in February-March 2013, and it was perfect for my needs and interests. The location is ideal for anyone wishing to explore all of La Gomera while taking full advantage of the services, shops and restaurants located throughout Valle Gran Rey.

Esther and her entire family were warm and welcoming and a wonderful source of information for where to go and what to see while on this amazing island. (I especially enjoyed football with the twins!) The flat is bright and clean and well appointed. I really appreciated the sun-drenched patio and never tired of the magnificent view and ever-changing sky.

I had a car, however there is a bus stop a mere five minutes from the flat. There is also a small supermarket a short stroll away, not to mention the kilometres of trails that criss-cross the valley, moments from your door. All in all, a wonderful experience!
