About John Gelder
Marie has an MA in Fine Arts and Ceramics and has her studio here in La Palma. The house reflects many touches of her passion. John is a retired Consulting Engineer and, together with Maries design experience, created this beautiful home.
John Gelder purchased this Villa in 1996
Why John Gelder chose Breña Alta
When my wife, Marie and I arrived on La Palma in 1988 we had a warm and instant craving to stay here. Originally we lived in Cancajos but in 1996 decided to seek the peace and tranquility of the Brenas. We designed and built this house to an exacting specification and included many little touches creating a home from home. Comfort and practicality are the order of the day, an example of this is the BBQ table where all guests can sit in comfort whilst cooking their own meals.
What makes this Villa unique
Unlike the majority of properties on La Palma, Casa Feliz accommodation is on a single level with plenty of space for both indoor and outdoor living. Also the house has full Double Glazing.

Beautiful villa. Perfect break away from home.
Location was great and the property is beautifully maintained. Very relaxing break.
Luxury & Comfort combined
One of the best villas I have ever stayed in. Totally equiped with everything you could need. Imaculately clean. Response from owner regarding queries first rate. Hope to return very soon.
Beautiful villa, perfect for relaxing.
We stayed in the property during February half term. The property is in a stunning location, private and in beautiful grounds, The villa is furnished to a very high standard, and many stunning works of art created by Marie. The property is well maintained with a pool man every Friday, gardener on Wednesday.
What I really liked is that it is an individual property down a small lane, not a complex. You ideally need a car, however you can walk to the local supermarket, and with-in 15 minutes walk to the nearest town. So if you did want a relaxing stay you could stay and enjoy the spectacular property.
This was our second choice as it is often advised to stay on the other side of the Island, however do not let this put you off, as the location is stunning and although certainly there was more cloud, and more chance of rain we found this was only 15 minutes in the morning on a few days, and the advantage is the spectacular setting, lush gardens and not far from the airport (but far enough not to be disturbed). We really appreciated being met by Pilar at the airport who personally took us to the property. On arrival there was an excellent welcome pack and a log fire alight in the lounge. We hope to visit this lovely villa again.
A great place to rest and escape from winter in the UK
My wife and I have stayed in this beautiful villa before and it remains as lovely as ever. The garden is beautiful at this time of year, and there is an orchard providing plentiful avocados.
The weather cannot be relied upon in Jan/Feb, but there are some very nice days, and if the sun is not shining on one side of the island, it usually is on the other. In any event, it is generally 20 degrees warmer than England!
We tried eating at the Parador Hotel this time. Although the food was quite acceptable it was not exceptional and not good value for La Palma. We found the most enjoyable way to eat is to explore the island by car and stop off to try small 'kiosks' and cafes, of which there are plenty. They serve simple but authentic local dishes.
For exercise, the island is ideal for interesting and scenic hiking, which can involve strenuous climbs if you wish.
John and Marie are excellent hosts and take go to great lengths to ensure that guests enjoy the property.
The local agent, Pilar, is also very helpful and we hired a nice reliable car from her at a reasonable rate.
Wonderful property, just as advertised
We had a great stay for three weeks here. We were joined twice by friends and relatives and the layout of the house made this very enjoyable. The gardens are delightful with many varied plantings and mature trees. Our visit was unfortunately during a coolish spell so we didn’t avail ourselves of the large and very inviting pool, but instead hopped into the hot tub.
The house is very well situated in terms of facilities - the maxi coop being a surprisingly well stocked small store within walking distance if you need just a few things and San Pedro within a few minutes driving distance with three supermarkets. Wonderful restaurant Casa Osmundas about 15 minutes in an almost straight shot. (Try to get the waiter Carlos if you want an English speaker).
Pilar, John’s agent, met us at the airport and we followed her home which was a great help since to the unfamiliar it is difficult to find. Once we had driven it a couple of times it was a snap. When we arrived there was an unexpected and delightful “welcome” basket waiting for us. Pilar is quick to respond to any text requests and if there is a larger issue, John is also rapidly responsive and very helpful.
Should we return to La Palma (which we found as beautiful as described, particularly for the hiking) we wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.
A wonderful and well-equipped house set in a beautiful garden
The house was large enough for us and our grown up children, and came equipped with everything we could need. Outside there's a lovely garden - plus pool, hot-tub and barbeque area. The owners were very helpful, responding to any questions we had. We lived and worked on La Palma about 20 years ago, and are very familiar with the properties there - this is one of the nicest places we've seen, and made for a great holiday.
