We really enjoyed the comfort and peace afforded by 'Casa Rural Puerto Escondido', (Rural House Hidden Port), and hidden it was, on a lovely hillside location with charming views of the valley and coast. El Hierro is a fabulous island with wonderful, local food and wine and we were so glad that we chose to come to La Frontera and stay at Casa Rural Puerto Escondido. It was the perfect base for planning excursions to other local, beauty spots. The only noise we could hear was from whistling birds nearby. Perfect music to accompany a glass of wine with some of the local cheese. Highly recommended - We'll be coming back in the Autumn :) James and Nelly
