Idyllic location with direct views to the sea. The house was well set up and incredibly quiet with wonderful hosts who were there to answer your questions, and were absent unless you wanted them. All we heard was birdsong. You could pick oranges off the trees for juice, and fresh rocket and herbs for your salads. Home-made bread and marmelade was available, as were very fresh eggs, avocados... The island itself has everything, mountains with unique weather features, deciduous forests, pine forests, black sands beaches, arid volcanic areas, miradores around every corner. My wife and I had all our expectations surpassed. We are planning to return
I cannot really say much more than has been said already. Great hosts who are very responsive to emails and queries. A lovely location,not at all touristic, with a wonderful view from which to watch the sun go down each evening. There are a number of varied walks in the locality, with details provided in the flat. The accomodation amply met our requirements for the week. The good wifi signal (which can be picked up from the patio too) plus internet radio were a better option (for a British visitor) than a TV with just Spanish channels. Hopefully we will be back one day.
We had a very enjoyable weeks stay at Casa Lucia. The apartment is light and airy. It has a very well equipped kitchen, comfy bed and an efficient bathroom and shower. The patio area is most welcome. We sat out most mornings to eat breakfast and enjoy the stunning view- it was also nice to come home to to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine.
Rob and Hazel were perfect hosts- helpful in planning our weeks activities. We loved the freshly baked bread and the oranges which we made into juice.
The location on the island is ideal - although no route is quick because of the windy roads - it's possible to reach anywhere on the island from this location .
We particularly enjoyed the local market on Saturday and Sunday and the trip (on Rob's recommendation ) to the observatory.
Casa Lucia is the perfect place to stay on La Palma. It is well-equipped with everything needed for self-catering and comfort - no detail has been overlooked. It is a super home from home. We appreciated the wood-burner in mid-winter (the nights are chilly) and the internet radio and its iPod-friendly programming as well. The hosts, to whose villa the apartment is linked, are welcoming, informative and very kind. We were given the run of the vegetable garden and even in mid-winter were able to enjoy spinach and greens, and fresh herbs. The gift of a large squash also contributed to a hearty soup. It goes without saying that we were comfortable and relaxed throughout our stay at Casa Lucia.
The location is stunning, with fine views of the village and the sea beyond and below. Puntagorda is one of the most attractive places on what is a very beautiful island, and a good base for exploration. At night, when it is clear, the view of the heavens from Casa Lucia's terrace is magnificent.
We had high expectations for our stay at Casa Lucia and it exceeded them. Modern, well equipped accommodation with terrace and barbecue. Great outlook over countryside and sea views. Good location for short and more challenging walks. Busy Saturday and Sunday market in Puntagorda for local produce and crafts. But above all of this, the owners Rob and Hazel have created a very special ambience providing local information, fruit and vegetables from their garden and helpful suggestions. Our week in January was sunny but with cool evenings so the wood burning stove was very much appreciated. We barbecued on three evenings enjoying stunning sunsets. Very good Wifi and Internet radio were a bonus.
