Those looking to explore magnificent countryside and enjoy a peaceful retreat need look no further than Ibo Alfaro.
This recently restored manor house is some 150 years old and perched on a really impressive slope with breathtaking panoramas of the Hermigua valley, hill ranges as well as the Atlantic Ocean. The small terraced garden is an ideal place to take all this in and, weather permitting (which is usually the case) enjoy breakfast with a marvellous vista. Bedrooms come with appealing wooden floors and look out onto the ocean or the valley, whilst general decoration is unpretentious yet comfortable with some nice touches.
The stonewall of the dining room, for example, is rather attractive. The charming village of Hermigua, with its narrow winding streets is only a stone’s throw away and boasts some fine buildings that are certainly worth exploring.
Furthermore, the wonderful surrounding countryside includes the Garajonay national park, home to a fascinating rain forest and an excellent locale for trekkers and lovers of flora, some of which can only be found here.
Finally, an interesting point is the singular and rather pleasant aroma that emanates from the teak wood with which the house is built.

Great Hideaway
Date of stay 04/02/2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Ibo Alfaro. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms ere very clean with some of the most comfortable hotel pillows I have ever used! And the towels white, fluffy and generous in size.The hotel only serves breakfasts (plentiful) but there are good restaurants in Hermiguez, some within walking distance, some a short drive away and the advice we were given about where to eat was spot on. If we ever go back to La Gomera, this would be my first choice and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
