Parador de La Gomera, Canary Islands - Canarian manor house (4*)
La Gomera's Parador is stunningly situated on a terrace high above the sea, with spectacular views over the Atlantic. On a clear day, guests are treated to a backdrop of neighbouring Tenerife with its lofty Pico Teide. The Parador itself is a traditional, unpretentious Canary manor house, capturing the flavour of local architecture with a veranda and a beautiful pan-tiled roof. Inside, the furniture combines Castilian and Isabelline styles, with spacious rooms offering views onto the sea and hotel gardens.
The large terrace features a swimming pool overlooking the sea, and the surrounding garden is replete with subtropical species native to the island. These public areas are some of Parador de La Gomera’s most popular features and provide a relaxing environment for guests to take in the ocean views.
Situated in the island’s capital, San Sebastián, the Parador de La Gomera is easily accessible with several daily 45 minute ferries across from Tenerife’s Los Cristianos port, and flights from both Tenerife and Gran Canaria airports. The capital is also a prime location for tasting some of the local specialities, and exploring the renowned Canarian black sand beaches.
