“A beautiful place between the sea and the mountains”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I love this place. The host is great, very friendly and generous, she made us feel welcome and the holiday started wonderful as soon as we arrived. Next time we will have a present for the host too because there are so many great things like wine, goat cheese, eggs etc. ... The kitchen is perfect, the shower is fantastic, the terrace is huge, we spent a lot of time there because the view is so amazing. We walked about 30 min. to the small silent beach. And Agaete (about 15 km from there) is a good start for trekking and experiencing the mountains ... Of course - you need a car and have to be a good driver. Thank you again for a great time! :)

“A lovely place to stay.”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This was a lovely little apartment in a beautiful location. The large, sunny terrace has views of the sea and the mountains and, at night, the stars! You can walk into the mountains by a path that leads up from the side of the house.

El Risco is a small village with a couple of bars and a shop. It is well away from the main tourist areas which made it all the more attractive to us. You do have to be prepared for driving along a narrow and winding road high up on the cliffs to get to the nearest towns. But the spectacular scenery makes up for it!

The apartment was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. When we arrived, Silvana had provided supplies including a bottle of wine and some home produced fruit and eggs. She and her family were very welcoming. I’m just sorry that my Spanish is so poor. I would have liked to chat more and to say thank you properly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

“Amazing expierience”

Very different place with amazing view and also perfect host!!! We felt really welcome as Silvana made it special with extra touch, like a complimentary bottle of wine, goat cheese (never tasted anything better!!!) and some suggestions about the place to visit. This amazing little house is in the mountains so you must have a car and be prepare for the challenge! We will remember this holiday for a long time as it was something different from the boring hotels and we saw a beautiful side of this Ireland!!!

Stay here if you (would) like to
-get away from your everyday life
-explore the beautiful green mountains arounds you
-rent a small car to see other places on the island
-have breakfast in the sun on the amazing terrace
-see stars and hear crickets at night
-enjoy quiet and remote but beautiful places

Don't stay here if you
-are likely to get car sick (and plan on trips outside the village everyday)
-are an inexperienced or anxious driver / afraid of heights
-mind driving to the next sandy beach
-are too lazy to go shopping in the next town (which is about 15 km)
-mind being the (almost) only tourist in the village
-need a perfect internet connection and international TV channels
