Further information

Nearest Beach : to the beach in 15 kilometres

Car: Recommended

Directions: From the airport follow the signage to LOS LLANOS, the street (LP 1) leads you upwards through a tunnel to the other side of the mountains. From there the street leads you to EL PASO (beware of a speed camera at the 'Centro de Visitantes'). In El Paso turn right a the first traffic light until appr. 100 meter to the next traffic light, where you turn right again into the one way street 'Calle Manuel Tano'. Follow this street upwards and straight until a narrow crossing of the street 'Calle San Antonio', turn here right again and immediately left into the street 'Calle Acerjo'. The second house on the right hand side is the Finca Sambal (blue and purple), after 5 meters a path is sloping down to the parking lot.

Finca Sambal is centrally located on the sunny western side of the Island with spectacular views of the mountains of the Cumbre (the ridge, that divides La Palma into the eastern and western sides) and across the Valley of Aridane. The centre of El Paso is in walking distance (10 minutes), the Finca lies on the outskirts in a calm side street.

This small holiday resort exists of two houses, the old colonial style manor house and the rather newly built duplex house with the two units Mango and Papaya, surrounded by a sub-tropical garden.

The terraces and winter garden of all three units open to the secluded western side with panoramic views over the Valley of Aridane and El Paso to the ocean, also the pool area with the large sun terrace and the partly covered barbecue area. The swimming pool is roofed and therefore swimming is possible all year round. There is great walking or biking from the doorstep, passing well-tended canarian houses and garden, or meadows with horses and goats, surrounded by the woody slopes of the Cumbre.

This is a rural and original part of La Palma, far from any hectic and a little bit like from another time ...

El Paso is a village where traditions are still important, the original 'Fiestas' are still celebrated and the old men are sitting outside the bars, sipping their coffee and smoking their cigars.

But there are also plenty of shopping facilities: super markets, bakeries, health stores, souvenir shop and some fine restaurants.

The capital Santa Cruz and the airport are only 30 min by car, Los Llanos, the 'secret capital' is only 10 minutes and the beaches of Tazacorte, Puerto Naos, Charco Verde and Los Cancajos are only 15 - 20 minutes by car.

El Paso is a great starting point for exploring the island in every direction.

Subliminal! Wonderful, relaxing and aesthetic!

  • 5 of 5

Really don't want to write a review here because I want to keep this piece of paradise to myself!

The property is beautifully furnished - the photos really don't capture this at all. From soft swaying curtains that provide a semi-division of the main room and on the four poster bed, to the toy paint that Klaus used on the walls.

Lots to do, although a car is essential if you want to travel further a field. Nice people all round with a great local supermarket and plenty of smaller shops to peruse.

Claudia and Klaus were the perfect hosts. They left us to it but were always on hand for any information or help with anything. I am definitely going back but hopefully this time with my friend from Iceland!

Thank you to you both.

Great memories.

Vala (Valerie Ebrahimi).

Märchenhafte Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Diese Unterkunft lässt keine Wünsche offen. Sie ist wirklich märchenhaft schön eingerichtet. Zu dem mit 175 qm auch atemberaubend groß. Dazu ein solarbeheizter und überdachter Pool und ein fantastischer Ausblick in das Aridanetal und auf den Atlantik. Der kleine, bezaubernde Ort El Paso, hat ein paar gute gastronomische Restaurants zu bieten. Aber auch in der nahen Umgebung, sprich 10 bis 20 Autominuten entfernt, finden sich ebenfalls einige sehr gute Restaurants. Insgesamt liegt diese Unterkunft sehr zentral um die Westküste kennenzulernen. Gerne wieder. 100 Prozent weiter zu empfehlen.

La Isla bonita - im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu sechst einen wunderschönen Urlaub in den Häusern Safran und Mango verbracht! Die Häuser beinhalten alles was man braucht! Und dazu ist die Einrichtung nicht nur vollständig und umfangreich, sondern auch liebevoll ausgewählt. Die Häuser waren sauber und gepflegt, wir haben uns direkt wohlgefühlt! Extras wie Sauna, Whirlpool und Pool sind natürlich besonderer Luxus. Wenn man die Anleitung der Sauna gelesen hat, ist die Bedienung einfach. Für den Whirlpool wäre ein kleiner Bedienungshinweis hilfreich ;-) Die vielen, sonnigen Terassen sind so ansprechend, dass man auch die ganzen Tage nur dort verbringen könnte. Doch dafür ist die Insel einfach zu wundervoll. Von El Paso aus ist auch alles gut zu erreichen.

Im Ort gibt es einige Restaurants die zu empfehlen sind. Mit Spanisch oder Deutsch kommt man auch ganz gut zurecht. Die besonderen Highlight-Tips der Reiseführer bezüglich der Bars/Restaurants von La Palma würde ich nicht unbedingt weiterempfehlen: Der Service ließ oft zu wünschen über, was in unbekannteren Lokalen deutlich schöner war. Aber dies muss ja nicht generell für alle Tips gelten ;-)

Diese Insel würde ich auf jeden Fall wieder besuchen und die Ferienhäuser ebenfalls. Wir waren gerne zu Gast!

Noch schöner als zu Hause!

  • 5 of 5

La Palma ist für Wanderer und Biker ein Paradies und bietet jeden Tag Abwechslung und Landschaftseindrücke vielfältigster Art. Und wenn man dann nach einem eindrucksvollen Aktivtag ins Safran kommt, dann ist das schöner als nach Hause kommen! Dieses wunderbare Häuschen ist derart liebevoll und atmosphärisch eingerichtet und lässt an nichts fehlen. Zu gerne haben wir am frühen Abend noch einen Saunagang genossen, bevor es mit dem Weinchen ab auf die Terrasse ging, um den weiten Blick aufs Meer und den Sonnenuntergang zu genießen. Fünf Sterne müssen hier einfach vergeben werden!

traumhaftes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt etwas oberhalb von el Paso. Von der riesigen Dachterrasse hat man einen weiten Blick über die Bucht und die Berge bis die Sonne im Meer versinkt. Die Morgensonne lässt sich auf der geschützten Terrasse hinter dem Haus besonders genießen. Die Zimmer, die Bäder und die Küche sind großzügig und mit viel Liebe und Kreativität eingerichtet. Alles ist sauber und sehr gepflegt. Dank der Zentralheizung muss auch in dem Wintermonaten niemand frieern. Dieses traumhafte ferienparadies eignet sich zum kuscheln, feiern und arbeiten.

BELLE MAISON MAIS PAS DU TOUT PRATIQUE

  • 2 of 5

Belle maison, mais pas du tout pratique, cuisine éloignée de la salle à manger.

Manque four micro- ondes, et on a pas pu utiliser le four traditionnel car toute l'électricité de la maison disjonctait.

Il faut passer dans une chambre pour accéder à la salle de bain.

Je ne recommanderai pas cette maison.

Owner's Response: Liebe Familie.............. Sie sind einfach nicht korrekt und das von Anfang an! Erst erhandelt man die Lücke ganz günstig für 3 Personen, dann sind es vier und ich sage passt schon, aber anreisen dann mit 5 Personen ist frech! Mehr bezahlen sowieso nicht! Dann einen Strom und Wasserverbrauch zu hinterlassen in 5 Tagen was andere in 2 Wochen brauchen, mir fehlen die Worte. Sie sind notorische Nörgler und der Witz an der Sache ist, ich wurde von einem anderen Vermieter gewarnt. Doch ich dachte mir passiert soetwas nicht. Zum Schluß dann noch um die Endreinigung zu feilschen setzt einem die Krone auf aber mit Dornen. Ich wünsche Ihnen trotzdem alles Gute Klaus und Claudia Comme j`ai fait partie d`un autre loueur, vous ne vous avez encore jamais plait une maison de maniére trouvée que. Ils sont raleur notoires, Preisdrücker et arrivent plus simplement effrontément avec une person et ne paient rien aussi pour cela. Je vous espére peuvent tout de meme jouir de la vie et regarder chacun demain dans le miroir. Klaus et Claudia
