El Cortijo is a vacation villa rental surrounded by a Mediterranean garden with pool and within easy access to the beautiful beaches of the coast in Andalucia.
How would you describe Villa La Palma in a nutshell?
Villa La Palma is a luxury villa rental on the island of La Palma in the western Canary Islands. It’s a beautiful place to watch the sunset over the ocean and the perfect place to be immersed in nature and Bauhaus-style architecture. The villa has everything you could want to ensure a great stay.
What is the atmosphere like?
I am always overwhelmed by the expansive 180-degree views of the massive Atlantic Ocean and its tranquillity and peacefulness. The villa only adds to that. It is ambitious and luxurious in terms of design and furnishing, but at the same time there is a certain element of warmth, which makes the house even more special.
What inspired you to build it and rent it out to guests?
I first set foot on La Palma about 15 years ago and immediately felt at home in such a powerful and inspirational environment. When I was shown the plot of land, I thought it might be a mistake not to build something there. Nevertheless, I decided to take on that challenge, and found a great architect from Berlin and someone local to help. I originally built Villa La Palma for my family, where the children could be downstairs on their own and I could rent one of the floors out to guests. Eventually, we decided to turn it into a luxury holiday villa.
What type of guests would Villa La Palma be perfect for?
Over the years we have had a lot of interesting guests who are fascinated by the architecture. But the apartments are adaptable for a wide range of guests. A couple or a small family could rent the panorama floor, as there is space enough for four guests. For a larger family or group, they can rent the garden floor so that they will have their own space with a kitchen, separate bathrooms and an entrance. In this manner, the entire house is quite flexible for most guests.
La Palma is perfect for people who enjoy overwhelming nature and activities – or a private peaceful hideaway. However, the rental might not be ideal for very small children as we do have a swimming pool.
