The history of the Casa Maria goes back to the year 1870 and since then this jewel is in family property. The quiet location in the middle of the picturesque old town alleys of Tazacorte, far away from hustle and bustle, let you immerse yourself directly in the relaxed southern lifestyle. The spacious town house with 235 square metres of living space was extensively renovated in 2019 while retaining its unmistakable character.
The living room on the ground floor, with its original tea wood planks and ceilings (tea is the heartwood of the Canary pine) and massive natural stone walls, breathes the spirit of the Belle Époque. On the same level there is a modern kitchen in classic white, the dining room is bright and friendly thanks to a skylight with historical solid wood furniture, the bathroom and another bedroom.
A morera wood staircase leads to the upper living area with master bedroom with bathroom en-suite and another single bedroom. From there it is only a few steps to the private inner courtyard, which invites you to relax with its high-quality lounge furniture.
Another staircase leads to the sun terrace with a fascinating view over the roofs of Tazacorte. An outdoor shower provides refreshment while sunbathing. On this floor there is also an outside kitchen, a mobile gas grill and a washing machine.
Due to the central but nevertheless quiet location there is an extensive gastronomic offer within walking distance. Owing to the excellent connection to public transport, this accommodation is also suitable for guests who do not want to rent a car.
The island of La Palma offers breathtaking landscapes, remote beaches, imposing volcanoes, dense forests and incomparably starry skies.
With its 708 square kilometres, an elevation of 2.426m and its shape of a heart it is the most Western island of the Canary Island chain. Like every island in this archipelago, La Palma was created by volcanic activity. It is one of the youngest of the seven islands, dating back some 1.7 million years. The volcanic origin of La Palma is still clearly recognizable today, especially the southern part of the island with the dormant volcano Teneguía which last erupted in 1971, and offers interesting insights into its geological past.
The year-round mild climate with average temperatures between 18 and 27 degrees Celsius produce spring-summerlike weather as a result of the northeast trade winds.
This weather phenomenon is responsible for a pleasant subtropical climate and a rich green vegetation that prevails because of the humidity carried along in the trade winds. These moisture rich winds at certain times of the year also create a spectacular waterfall of clouds cascading down the central mountain faces and hence the nicknames Isla Verde – Green Island and Isla Bonita – Beautiful Island.
The unique geological structure of the island with its variety of vegetation zones and microclimates that are rarely found in the world on such a small area make this island a miniature universe. Each area of the island varies completely from another. In 1983 La Palma was declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Another special feature of La Palma is the unique night sky. Due to its location in the Atlantic Ocean, sparse population, minimum light pollution and highest mountain peak Roque de los Muchachos 2.426m, the island was chosen as the location for one of the largest and modern observatories in the world.
The official population of the island is approximately 80,000 people. Traditional festivals such as the Bajada de la Virgen or Los Indianos carnival, famous far beyond the island’s borders, bear witness to the zest for life of the local people (Palmeros). Not only the geographical location, but also the numerous immigrants from Central and South America show a variety of Hispanic influences in island life, cuisine and cultural.
