The 200 year old house has been restored to a high modern standard but still retains many traditional canarian features including balconies, wood floors, window seats and wooden roofs. A unique enclosed balcony and the first floor spacious lounge (with its french windows leading to a 'Romeo and Juliet' balcony) offer spectacular views of the bay of Santa Cruz and the mountains behind. With a large well-equipped kitchen, dining room with log-burning stove, four double bedrooms, two en suites and a large family bathroom, the villa is ideal for a relaxing family holiday. However the villa will also suit couples or singles who love space and privacy. We provide towels, bedding and a welcome pack of basic items for your arrival.
Located centrally on the picturesque side of the island, the capital Santa Cruz and the beach resort of Los Cancajos are a only a 15 minute drive away. The small town of San Pedro with its bars, cafes, shops and supermarkets is five minutes away by car.
La Palma is unspoilt by mass tourism and the whole island is a nature reserve. It is the greenest of the Canary islands, a real walkers and nature lovers paradise.

La Palma is effectively a nature reserve, unspoilt by the mass tourism which has blighted some of the other canary islands. There are contrasts of volcanic lunar landscapes, subtropical rain forests, large conifer woodlands, rugged coastal cliff scenery and cultivated areas with an abundance of picturesque towns and villages many of them with colonial connections. Villa Miranda is ideally located as a base from which you can explore all of these areas.
Your villa is set in the valley of Las Brenas near the small town of San Pedro. This is one of the prettiest areas of the island with its lush vegetation and panoramic views over the bay of Santa Cruz and the mountains to the rear (including the highest mountain of the island).
Your villa is accessed down a quiet country lane in the hamlet of Miranda. This ensures you will have complete privacy and tranquility. You will be living among local people and be able to enjoy the relaxed pace of the island with its frequent fiestas and celebrations. Each of the local villages has its own programme of festivals and events.
