Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum. Visitors can also visit the Museo Capinteria Antiga, a little artisan museum situated at the seafront of the village.

The apartment is even better than the photographs suggest and was immaculately presented when we arrived. A delicious basket of fruit and bottle of wine were also waiting for us, which was a lovely touch. All our contacts with Olga were handled efficiently and she had someone waiting for us with the keys when we got there and to show us around, which we really appreciated. The kitchen has all the high spec items you can possibly need, including coffee machine, water filter etc and is fully stocked with a wide range of quality crockery, cutlery and glassware. There were lots of beautiful fluffy towels, a range of beach towels and quality bedding and Olga had also thoughtfully provided some toiletries. The balcony on the lower floor has a perfect spot for morning coffee and has wonderful views of La Gomera. However, our favourite spot was the rooftop terrace (well furnished with dining table/chairs, loungers and a very comfortable day bed) and we spent most of our time here. It gets all day sun but the awning provides much needed shade too. We have holidayed in many private apartments and this is without doubt one of the best we have stayed in and is a perfect base for a relaxing holiday. The Playa de la Arena complex itself is maintained to a high standard and the pool is fantastic. It was quite quiet when we were there so often, the four of us (our daughter, her fiancé, my husband and I) were the only ones using it, which was great. It's a 15 minute stroll down to Playa de la Arena or Puerto de Santiago and about 20 minutes into Los Gigantes so ideally situated for all three. (Recommend a taxi back as the area is pretty hilly but taxis are plentiful and cheap) There are lots of cafes, bars and restaurants in the three resorts (Our favourite restaurants were the Fisherman Inn and Jardin del Sol) We hope to be back in the not too distant future and really cannot recommend this apartment too highly. Thanks Olga!

                                                                                                    4 of 5

The apartment was fabulous to look at, spacious and very clean, It had everything we needed including all kitchen utensils, TV, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and a great bathroom, mosquito nets are fitted to all doors and windows, and then there are inner doors and windows with reflective glass.( We left the inner doors open all the time as it was so hot, however still very safe ) We stayed in the 2 bed apt. Bedroom 1 is spacious. Bedroom 2 I would say is suitable for 2 small children or 1 older child, not 2 adults as the bed seems smaller than a double. Both have plenty wardrobe space. It also has 2 other apartments which are 1 bedroomed. The owners, Ruth and Peter live in another, who are very nice and really helpful. It has a very nice patio area with sunbeds, table and chairs, bbq, washer and dryer (located in cupboards outdoors). There is also a pool (indoor) and a hot tub (shared between the 4 apartments). The apartments are safe with 2 outer doors and your apartment door (all locked). It is situated just across the road from all bars, shops and restaraunts in Playa De La Arena. Puerto De Santiago is 2 or 3 minutes around the corner by car, approx. 20/30 minute walk (as it's uphill). We hired a car so were able to take the short drive to Los Gigantes also. Los Christianos and Playa De Las Americas is approx. 30 minutes away by car. A very enjoyable holiday.
