A group of us travelled to La Palma to compete in the Transvulcania ultra-marathon. Because we were a large group we decided to look for a villa option and we are very glad we stumbled across Villa Corona! From the moment we arrived we were stunned by the beauty and serenity of the villa itself and the location. The residence is kitted out with everything you could possibly want and more. It felt like we had checked into a 5 star hotel but we were given the full run of the place! Immediately we all felt at home there and we treated the place as if it was our own, I was almost tempted to do some gardening I felt so at home there!! Franciso the caretaker couldn't have done more for us. He saw a group of young(ish) guys relaxing around the house and arrived in the next evening with a Fussball table for us! And he helped us get transport around the island for a couple of mountain runs. I'm not much of a stargazer but on a couple of occasions I woke up during the night and seeing the night sky around the villa was truely breathtaking. Thanks to Martin the owner also, his communication was exceptional and he couldn't have been more helpful. I definitely hope to return to Villa Corona!
Villa Corona is the most wonderful and peaceful home in Tijarafe, La Palma. We had the most stunning, restful time.
The design of the house is incredibly clever with the roof perfectly accessible for telescopes and star gazing. The perfect place from which to take photos of the skies. The house is at the top of the mountain, the highest home in that road, about a kilometre up from the main road, and is therefore absolutely perfect for light pollution free evenings and nights. Lying on the roof and watching the stars with our children was simply stunning. The back of the house looks onto pine forests and the front over the ocean. It is spacious, comfortable and luxurious. A fantastic find. We looked a long time for the right house!
We can highly recommend Villa Corona and if you are as blessed as we were, you might even have the Corona Borealis overhead during your stay!
Thank you to the fabulous housekeeper and his wife, the 'salt of the earth and nothing is a problem', truly wonderful folk. You made our stay relaxed and we appreciate all you did and had to do for us.
Martin, you have a gem of a home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy it for two weeks.
We will be back.
Wishing you all the best,
Richard and Liz and children (who absolutely loved every moment)
