Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in El Hierro, Canary Islands your home away from home

El Hierro is one of the lesser known Canary Islands. It measures just 50km from one end to the other and is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with an outstanding diversity of terrain. It has a rugged cliff-lined coast and clear waters for swimming and scuba diving as well as secluded coves and woodland. Its volcanic origin can clearly be seen in its dramatic landscape and high peaks. The capital of the island is Valverde. El Hierro is linked by ferry and regular flights to Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

Things to Do in El Hierro

Exploring this nature’s paradise is the main reason visitors choose a holiday rental at El Hierro. Forests, mountains, rolling hills, caves and lava formations provide excellent places for walking or exploring by car, or hire a local taxi and driver to show you the sights. Scuba diving and snorkeling is fantastic in the clear warm waters. There is an amazing diversity of marine life in the underwater landscapes. Go surfing, windsurfing, paragliding, caving and rock climbing. After dark enjoy local restaurants and the traditional bars for a semblance of nightlife.

Places to Visit in El Hierro

Places to visit near your El Hierro holiday rental include the capital, Valverde. Perched on a mountain with beautiful sea views, Valverde is a quiet city with steep streets, whitewashed houses and pretty gardens. The main highlights are the local church and the “Cristo de la Columna" figure carved by a Genoese sculptor. The Pozo de las Calcosas is a nearby settlement of stone houses with straw roofs. The island’s best beaches are La Caleta Beach which is easy to reach and the Muellito de Orchila Beach which has calm waters and the Cave of the Devil. Las Playas and Timijiraque both have strange black volcanic sand.

Weather in El Hierro

Spring is the greenest season on this lovely island.

We stayed for a week, the house is very comfortable with everything you need. It can be windy but, the view are the compensation.

Total Relax

5 of 5
A beautiful rural setting in renovated, stone buildings where farmers used to make wine. 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
