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.
