I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
It is a wonderful place for a family vacation with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground.
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
Beautiful landscapes, excellent food! Great for a relaxing vacation.
Hire a car to explore the island, there is lots to see, from beaches to the national
park, it's well worth it!
Yes, particularly if you stay at the Finca de Arrieta, they are environmentally
Excellent vacation, great chance to recharge for the rest of the year! (more)Lila Caballero
The best part was staying in the tiny fishing village of Punta Mujeres and interact with the locals simply by having a cortado or getting a beer with the others. This is the best slow travel I have experienced. Highly recommended, if you want to walk, trek, read, write, have great food and surrounded by simple, kind
people. An unforgettable vacation where the pace was slow and the locals very kind including the mini market at Punta Mujeres, the hair dresser and folks
at Bar Palenka. (more)Priti Patnaik
The cottage was beautiful, the location was perfect. I will definitely be telling everyone about it, although was tempted to keep it as my secret! (more)Laura Whelan
We expected the finca to be lovely but it far exceeded our expectations. The Garden Cottage was perfect for a couple who wanted privacy but still all the facilities of the shared areas...Excellent!
Fantastic! Whilst we were there most of the other guests were couples with young children but as a childless couple we were catered for just as perfectly. The finca is a beautiful place, the owners are friendly and helpful, can't praise it enough!
Great experience, wonderful hosts and beautiful surroundings... (more)Sarah Slade
Going on a day trip to a remote island organised by owner Tila and swimming on an empty beach.
Definitely rent a car and try arrive in day light as roads signs easily missed in dark
Yes - completely.
Excellent, cheap and cheerful, direct flights, lots to do...brilliant family vacation would have been equally good for a couple or friends.
The most memorable part was watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! (more)Angellique Sunter
We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great vacation. (more)Kate Macnab
