The Villa Monte Breña has been renovated in a modern style and is equipped with numerous amenities. The villa, built in the typical style of Spanish mansions, towers majestically over the over 2000 square metre property. In the garden, which is divided into different levels, you will find opuntia and cacti as well as fruit trees. A real favourite place might be the romantic pergola in the shade of big laurel trees – sea view included.
Warm colours determine the interior of the house. On the ground floor one reaches from the entrance area through a large glass door into the generous living area.
The salon with 2 different seating areas as well as a wood fireplace flows smoothly into the dining area and the modern, well-equipped kitchen. In front of the living room there is a spacious breakfast terrace with seating set, dining table and sun loungers. Furthermore, you will have a magnificent 180-degree sea view of the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and the stunning sunrises.
On the same level in the rear part of the house there is a bathroom with shower, a bedroom with French bed and the utility room with washing machine and dryer.
The upstairs bedroom with 2 single beds has a large balcony with breathtaking sea views. The highlight in the bright master bathroom is probably the whirlpool bath tub. In addition, for the cooler days on La Palma, all rooms are equipped with marble infrared heaters.
Nearby there is a traditional bakery that offers bread rolls and baguettes as well as typical local pastries and cakes. From the house you can walk directly through the green natural landscape. Mirador Monte Breña is a popular excursion point in the immediate vicinity. To discover the beautiful old town of the island capital Santa Cruz de La Palma with its numerous cafés, tapas bars, the harbour, museums, theatres and legendary flower-decorated balconies, you only need 15 minutes by car. On weekends Mazo has the Mercadillo, a popular weekly market selling fresh fruit and vegetables as well as local wine and cheese specialities.
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.
