Casa Estrella, designed by a British architect, sets standards and inspires with its unusual design and uniqueness. Not far from the village of Los Llanillos, this white villa on the island is known as “Casa con la cúpula”. Furthermore, the striking glass dome above the centre of the star-shaped house provides brightness and natural daylight inside. Numerous organically shaped windows of various sizes allow additional light to enter the striking structure. The skilful alignment of the windows creates spectacular lines of sight which, depending on the time of day and the incidence of light, direct the eye to ever-changing details. This opens up new perspectives, especially in connection with the original nature of the surroundings, the sea and the mountains.
The dome light makes the living space bright and spacious and gives access to all rooms of the house. Another architectural highlight can be found in the bathroom in the form of a cave-like shower. The well-equipped kitchen leads directly to the outside where a small herb garden offers a fresh selection.
Around the house there are various natural stone terraces. Depending on the mood or time of day, the terraces offer free space and opportunities for relaxation. In addition, in the lower part of the building ensemble is a separate apartment, whbich can be ooked on request and offers space for 2 additional guests. If only the main house is booked, the apartment is simply locked. The exteriors can be used and enjoyed fully.
The garden is beautifully ingrown with numerous subtropical plants and presents itself as a successful framework for this architectural gem. Furthermore, the panoramic terrace in the lower part of the property offers a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. A barbecue is of course also available.
Nearby is the famous Charco Azul bathing area, a kind of bathtub in the rock created by nature with its lava effusions. Moreover, it is not far by car to Arenas Blancas, a fantastic landscape dominated by the rare block lava and to Playa Verodal, a red lava sand beach. Shopping facilities, bars and restaurants are all within a few minutes by car easy to reach.
Frontera is located at the entrance to the El Golfo Valley and is the second largest town on El Hierro. Many guests spend a hiking holiday here. But also holidaymakers who love the sea and want peace and quiet from everyday stress like to come to Frontera, because there is no tourism with large hotel complexes full of package tourists here.
The island of El Hierro is the most western and smallest of the seven Canary Islands. The landscape is varied and unspoilt. Like every island of this archipelago, El Hierro owes its existence to volcanic activity, but is one of the youngest of the seven islands, with about 1.1 million years. The volcanic origin of El Hierro is still clearly visible today, especially the southern part of the island around the coastal village La Restinga offers interesting insights into the geological past.
The year-round mild climate with average temperatures between 15 and 27 degrees Celsius is primarily determined by the north-eastern trade wind. This weather phenomenon is responsible for the fact that on the island El Hierro subtropical climate prevails pleasantly and that also a rich vegetation thrives by the humidity carried along in the trade wind clouds.
In combination with the unique geological structure of the island, there is a variety of vegetation zones, such as pine and laurel forests, fertile fields and pastures, subtropical vegetation and fascinating volcanic areas with endemic succulents. Agriculture can be found in the northwestern part: orchards and vineyards as far as the eye can see.
Another special feature of El Hierros is the starry sky, which is particularly bright due to the clean air. Due to its location in the Atlantic Ocean, the relatively sparse population and the pristine landscape, El Hierro is considered a natural paradise. The highest elevation is the 1501 metre high Malpaso. The official population of the island is approximately 11,000 people spread over a total area of 269 square kilometres. Traditional festivals such as the Bajada de la Virgen de los Reyes or the modern Bimbache open ART Festival bear witness to the joie de vivre of the Herreños – as the inhabitants of El Hierro are still called.
This unique combination makes the Canary Island of El Hierro, completely untouched by mass tourism, an ideal holiday destination for people who want to rest during their holidays and enjoy nature.
