About the property

Apt. in La Playa, Valle Gran Rey, La Gomera, Canary IslandsQuiet LAll Facilities and Beaches

The apartment is situated in a quiet location by the sea at La Playa, which is one of the villages which make up Valle Gran Rey. It is located within a thoughtfully designed small complex in the midst of an attractive garden. It has 2 private terraces, facing either the sea or the swimming pool, which has a children's enclosure, free sun loungers and parasols. There is a small supermarket - which opens 8am - 10pm seven days per week - opposite the apartment, there are several restaurants nearby and the bus stop and nearest bank are 5 minutes walk away. Being so centrally located, a car is not a necessity. Apart from what is probably the best beach on the island, there are several other beaches at walking distance, including a naturist beach. There are many excellent restaurants scattered around Valle Gran Rey, catering for every taste and offering very good value for money.

About Christine de Groot

We are a couple who appreciate the quietness and beauty of nature and also enjoy the company of other like-minded people over a nice meal and a glass of wine. We find all that on La Gomera, and specifically in Valle Gran Rey, as it generally attracts people who are appreciative of nature and like to explore the island by car, local transport or on foot.

Christine de Groot purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Christine de Groot chose La Gomera

Dutch friends had visited La Gomera the previous year and as they were so enthusiastic about this island, we tried it out for ourselves in March 2002 and fell in love, especially with the layed-back atmosphere of Valle Gran Rey. We returned in May of the same year and bought the apartment because of its proximity next to the sea, and its setting within a garden. Being complete enclosed, the sounds we can hear is the sea, the birds and sometimes children having fun in the pool. Nevertheless, the apartment is 5 mins walk from two beaches and a small boulevard from where you have a view of the small bay whilst you're enjoying your lunch, dinner or just a coffee or ice-cream - with a group playing local music most evenings. The supermarket and bakery are also located a few mins. away.

What makes this apartment unique

As walkers, we appreciate the bus station which is located nearby, with busses taking us to and from our walks destinations. And last but not least, as a sun lover I have the choice of two terraces, one of which gets the sun in the morning and one in afternoon/early evening. The same does apply for those who like sitting in a shady spot too of course!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Many thanks, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed so many things on the island" Stuart and Angie.



"We had a wonderful time - up and down mountains. Fantastic range of scenery/vegetation. We'll certainly be recommending La Gomera and your apartment to family and friends" Catherine.

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was accurate and clean and Christine was very helpful in her quick replies to inquiries. It has the advantage of a front balcony overlooking the pool and a rear one from where the sea can be seen - sun or shade throughout the day. Wifi is really only accessible from the main reception area. I could recommend this property with complete confidence to others. Valle Gran Rey appeared to be the best and busiest resort on the island. La Playa (where the apartment is situated) has a good beach, especially if you like to swim in the sea and very good restaurants within walking distance - Colorado was our favourite. Within 15-20 mins walk along the promenade is Vueltas with a lovely, calm, beach and swimming area and equally good restaurants (among our favourites was Restaurante Esperato, directly opposite the beach). The information re walks and about the island in general is very helpful and the walks are well sign-posted. We hired a car from Tenerife airport but many people travel by the local buses/taxis. The roads are very winding but not really a problem and we visited all the main towns and sights on the island. We were surprised how cheap the restaurants and bars were compared to Tenerife, for example. La Gomera is a very different Canary Island and we loved it!

Fantastic little gem!

  • 4 of 5

We booked after doing a lot of research and deciding that La Gomera looked like the Canary Island that was best suited to us - and we weren't wrong!

The apartment is perfectly located being only a 2 minute walk from lots of nice bars and restaurants and two beaches. We weren't in the pool as unfortunately we had a bit 'patchy' weather but it looked very nice and was never too busy.

The apartment itself was well equipped and had everything we needed. Christine was great pre our holiday supplying us with all the details we needed and answering any questions we had.

Valle Gran Rey was a perfect resort for us. It's very laid back and chilled out, indeed around 6pm every night it seemed that the village headed towards the beach wall, drank a few beers and enjoyed the fantastic sunsets. We enjoyed the very relaxed pace of life that Valle Gran Rey offers.

We hired a car to get to Valle Gran Rey which was great, however the roads are a little challenging and we arrived on a dark and misty night so if you're not a confident driver perhaps a taxi or the bus would be a better option.

All in all a great holiday and we'll definitely be back.

PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

JUST SPENT A WEEK AT THIS LOVELY APARTMENT. GREAT CONMUNICATION FROM THE OWNER WHO IS HAPPY TO SUPPLY ANY INFORMATION REQUIRED BEFORE YOUR VISIT. DESCRIPTION IS EXACTLY AS STATED WITH NO HIDDEN SURPRISES. IDEAL FOR A COUPLE OR EVEN FAMILY WITH SMALL CHILDREN. ENJOYED RELAXING ON EITHER BALCONY OF WHICH THERE IS ALWAYS SUN OR SHADE WHICH EVER YOU PREFER AND LISTENING TO THE WAVES FROM THE SEA. A NICE COMLEX WITH PLENTY OF SUN BEDS TO GO ROUND AND A GOOD SIZE POOL. JUST A SHORT WALK INTO TOWN WITH LOVELY RESTURANTS AND RIGHT NEAR A NUMBER OF BEACHES. LA GOMERA IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL AND JUST SO DIFFERENT FROM THE OVER COMMERCIAL TENERIFE. CANT WAIT TO GO BACK AND WOULD NOT ESITATE TO STAY IN THE APARTMENT AGAIN.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the apartment in Valle Gran Rey during our 6 night stay. We only wished we could have stayed longer...

The location was perfect, just metres from the ocean. I loved listening to the waves as I drifted off to sleep with the terrace window open each night. The walk into town through the back gate was also a (very pretty) highlight.

As a family of 4 with 2 small children (4 and 6 years) it was ideal and never felt too cramped, quite the opposite, with a light and airy feel to the place. Everything was spotless with all the equipment we could have needed. We especially loved having the books about the island and by the end of the stay we felt like we'd learned loads about La Gomera.

Both terraces were used at different times of the day and the pool was a definite hit with the whole family!

We will be back....
