Amazing views over the sun-drenched valley from Alojera over the sea to La Palma. The authentically restored "Casa Rural Sola" with its unique location offers up to four guests an enjoyable stay in a comfortable and cosy ambiance in a quiet environment with large terrace and swimming pool.
You reach he house over the terrace and the long veranda and enter the large living room including a dining table, fully equipped living area with a sofa bed, a TV and a kitchenette.
From this central area you reach the two bedrooms, of which one is equipped with a comfortable double bed, the other with two single beds. Each room also has a spacious wardrobe. The modern bathroom has a shower, toilet, washbasin and a washing machine.
On the spacious terrace and the veranda, there are more seats, sun loungers and a hammock under the palm trees invite to extensive relaxation. The swimming pool is open all year round. There is also a big grill - nothing is in the way for an enjoyable stay in this house.
There are two bars and two small supermarkets, as also a good restaurant down on the beach in the village of Alojera. The place is a very good starting point for many hikes, and is particularly suitable for those seeking tranquility, beach and bathing. A 45 minutes car ride takes you to the lively Valle Gran Rey or Vallehermoso.
The Casa "Sola" is very popular with its guests. Therefore, I advise you - especially during the holiday period - to book early!
Holiday home "Casa Rural Sola" is located about 500m from the centre and the Plaza of Alojera. A concrete footpath takes you to the house. There is parking in front of th house on the street. The immediate environment is rural with fruit and vegetable terraces and only a few houses to be seen nearby. The view glides freely into the landscape, the mountains and the sea.
In the village there are three small groceries, each with a bar, where you can enjoy a coffee, a glass of wine or a few "tapas" - small simple treats like bocadillos (baquettes), delicious local goats’ cheese with or Without Palmtree syrup, and more ...
A good Canarian restaurant, the "Prisma" awaits visitors on the beach of Alojera. You’ll always find the freshest sea-catch of the day on the menu. From the small terrace there’s a fantastic view of the sea.
The Atlantic is relatively quiet in the sheltered bay in front of Alojera, so you can swim there almost all year. In addition there’s a small seawater swimming pool.
A small health centre, the "Centro de Salud", a bank, petrol station, pharmacy and some bars and restaurants as well as several supermarkets can be found scattered within about a 40-minute radiant, eg. Vallehermoso. All this and many different restaurants and shops are located in the lively tourist centre of the island, Valle Gran Rey, which is also about a 40-minute drive.
The sun-drenched little village of Alojera is located in the north-west of La Gomera and belongs to the region of Vallehermoso. Alojera has only about 400 inhabitants and stretches from the black beach up to about 400m above sea level. Far away from the big roads, the locals lead a quiet, tranquil life without mass tourism.
Alojera is the village of palm trees: nowhere else on La Gomera has so many endemic date-palms. The palm trees are also the economic base for the village. The "Guarapo", which the "Palmeros" tap from the tops of the palm trees, produces "Miel de Palma" palm syrup and is sold in several small craft workshops in Alojera. The palmtree juice is boiled down until a sweet syrup is produced, which tastes great on desserts of all kinds. "Miel de Palma" is also the basic ingredient for "Gomerón" liquor - a mixture of "Parra", the Gomeran grape spirit and palmtree syrup. Delicious! The small "Miel de Palma" museum in Alojera shows visitors how to make this specialty.
Visit the small factory of "El Masape" in Alojera. Typical biscuits are baked and the delicious "Mojos" are made for Gomera's shops. In the tiny sales outlet of "El Masape" you can taste these delicacies and of course purchase them. And if you ask nicely, you can take a look behind the scenes.
Within a short drive from Alojera you are in the National Park "Garajonay", the green roof of the island, with its countless hiking trails. Also the nearby hamlets Taguluche, Tazo and Cubaba are worth a visit. The old ruins of Cubaba-Costa in the countryside are very picturesque and the secluded "Playa de Trigo" invites you to marvel and discover.
