CASA ALMA on La Gomera in the nature reserve of Hermigua is beautiful with a dream view that makes you happy! Our favourite house for two people.
Casa ALMA on the Canarian magic island La Gomera - is the third house on our Finca Montoro- in La Gomera and was, like all the others, restored by ourselves (from bottom to top and from front to back!)
I and Txus lived here all this time. Since the beginning of our FINCA project, then with our two children AYLA & ORION. But now the house has become too small for us...now it is:
……….. only for special peoples ……..
Over the 20m2 beautiful wooden terrace you can enter the great house. From this wooden terrace you have a dream view over the sea and I love to spend the whole holiday in a deck chair ....
Casa Alma La Gomera relaxed…
It's so nice and relaxed there. Casa ALMA is our only house that has this beautiful wooden terrace...at the moment.
The terrace makes the house even more special, because the design of our old long stored telephone poles over new current Tamia wooden floor fits perfectly into the landscape. Several friends from La Gomera and Berlin have helped us... manpower & woman's view & child's play....
The house has two comfortable deckchairs for resting, reading, relaxing and dreaming.
… New-Handmade-Vintage …
From the terrace there is direct access to the kitchen and dining area. The sleeping area is in the rear part of the house. Everything is in one big room. If you come to us, there will be a little surprise waiting on the table. Something different for everyone.
The unique view in the morning at noon in the evening and at night is to be fully enjoyed. Here you can really ENJOY...
Everyone says that about our finca. This place is very special for that.
This is not a picture in a picture frame, simply looked out of the window! I sewed my little rainbow cloud in Switzerland for my star daughter, it seems to fit well into the picture, because rain is rare.
The kitchen is open, has like the other houses a four plate gas stove and lots of space. Can you find the fridge?
Here we had cooked with pleasure and a lot for numerous guests, show me your favourite recipe...or write it down in our GUESTS COOKBOOK! We also learned to cook delicacies from many guests from different countries...
Txus has built the whole kitchen himself, so to have a great holiday there is of course some cooking equipment: Spices fresh or dried - partly from the wild garden you can pick them.
This is the sink - there is no dishwasher - because we have "only" solar power, but I am sure you will enjoy washing up with this OUTLOOK even on holiday...our water is pure spring water without cloro! (we have fought hard for that!) I am still experimenting to make a natural dishwashing liquid. Which is not perfect after many attempts, because I am not perfecto...mmmhh
Now we come to the living room...
CASA ALMA on La Gomera has a real wood-burning stove - but you have to collect the wood yourself... Only in the "winter months" from November to February did we sometimes heat. Actually we use the oven part for baking e.g. onion bread or delicious schschooooko cake... (divine says Jamie Oliver)
The book corner has a well-assorted reading corner door. Mostly our guests leave their holiday book there. I have found really good books, beautiful ones, which you can read several times.
Of course we also have books about the island La Gomera there as well as various hiking maps and plant books. "my" ADAC HIKING BOOK LA GOMERA is also on the shelf here. There are also children's books...
You are welcome to light the wood stove. Wood can be collected in the area or bought in the small hardware store. We will show you how to do it and then really enjoy.
The living room is next to the sleeping area - so when the fire is on, it can be nice and warm. But actually you won't need the stove that often, because on La Gomera there is a really pleasant warm climate all year round... also in Hermigua
The sleeping area has a bed (2x 90×200) which can be pushed together or separately. Depending on who is coming.
REALLY all guests say that they sleep very well and deeply here because the beds are great. The air is great and it is very quiet.
Towels & bed linen are changed once a week or at any time on request.
New and old - a good interaction. Like the house CASA ALMA...
The bathroom is small but cozy. Once again it has a wonderful view directly onto a palm tree and the old mirror lets in a lot of daylight...
Is fun to admire the holiday tan in the mirror or to smear the ALOE VERA which I will cut off from our garden.... for you to test.
There's still a big shower in the small bathroom...
We have built up everything ourselves everything works, but if something goes wrong, we are immediately on the spot, always available because it is our home. Our place is a special place. It is alive and grows constantly, it also changes.
- Like dark can be dark,
- How Still can be silent
- Sun can be so warm!'
We point out again at the very end: that our finca is located in the nature reserve outside of Hermigua all alone, and you drive on an unpaved earth road about 15min.
Okay, there are the other two houses nearby. So not by yourself!
