Welcome in the "House of ferns"The traditional family house, “House of Ferns“ lies in Agulo, in the north of the Canary Island of Gomera. The name takes its origin from the patio which is traditional in the old cultural houses and is, as a matter of fact surrounded by ferns.A wonderful oasis of tranquility and relaxationIn the various individual appartments (incl. kitchen and shower room) which have been renovated in the traditional style, you can enjoy a little escapism from the touristic hussle bussle.The tranqiulity, the ambiente and the excellent service, guarantee a perfect base for your holiday activities. From the roof terrace (with sun-loungers) and some appartments there are overwhelming views of the sea and the neighbouring island of Tenerife with the highest mountain in Spain, “Teide”.The village of Agulo with its unusual location on the cliffs of the sea is known as ´The Pearl of Gomera`.It provides a perfect basecamp for hiking and excursions. Many of the most beautiful hiking routes begin either from Agulo or the neighbouring village of Hermigua. The national Park Garajonay is a 30-minute drive away. We look forward to spoiling you!!The house is under German managment with fluent English speakers.

Generous, kind hearted hosts, fabulous fully refurbished building. Great courtyard and stunning roof terrace. Charming village, with good variety of bars and a fierce walk up to the clifftop mirador..

As a whole, there is not much to Agulo. Its banana packing industry died out years ago, leaving behind its rusting facilities and terraces of ancient trees decaying untidiy. Bananas are still grown on private plots, but the town is not exactly pretty in the `chocolate-box' sense of a similar seaside village in Devon. It has two small grocery shops, a bank, post office, one small, but decent restaurant (weekdays only), three bars,and many shuttered or abandoned houses and apartments. You will not be able to buy a newspaper, ice cream or bucket and spade. So....so we stayed for two weeks. What Agulo does have is Los Helechos, a three Euro taxi ride to the best fish restaurant you are ever likely to visit, one of the most spectacular mountain bus rides (another three Euros) to beautifully-situated Vallehermoso, and access to well-maintained walks. Sure enough, interesting people beat a path to Los Helechos's door. And that makes for an interesting stay. We met Danish photo-journalists and French and German guests, all enjoying the great freedom of this property which is very largely left to you during your stay. And Agulo, when you get to know it, does have pretty streets, and it's a real treat to walk down them in the quiet of a sunny morning. Do not bank on being served breakfast: none was served will we were there. And room safes, or a house safe, would be reassuring.

Stayed here for three nights. The room we got was really nice. We got to choose between room number one and number five and we chose 1. There is wooden floor and wooden furniture that fit very well in the atmosphere. The beds are really stiff and good and really good duvets to keep warm on chilit nights. On the second night we noticed some other guests arrived to the room above us because we heard the high heel shoes all the time from above when we were home. So If you get to choose you might want to stay in upper rooms if walking sounds in a wooden floor annoy you. :D The receptionist Ivonne is very friendly and helpful and she speaks good english. This was nice stay. Keep on mind that you can't get there with car. You have to leave the car either to center of the village or to the street quite near the hotel, where is a long line of parking lot. And in that parking area hangs around a very friendly orange cat. We gave him cat food a couple of times. So If you meet him, give him some petting. :)

All the rooms are comfortabele and decorated in the special Canarian style The room nr. 5 has direct acces to the top of the house where is a beautiful and intimate terras from where you have a perfect vieuw to the sea, Tenerife, and the red mountains at the back. And then our breakfast made by Denis with fresh fruits, figues, and an option the most healthy homemade smoothie with fresh cut Aloe Vera. We enjoyed the personal service and tranquility so much that we would-not leave.

Stayed at the Casa Rural for two weeks in October 2014 and would recommend the same for anyone needing a relaxing, regenerating break on the beautiful island of La Gomera and people who like an authentic experience. Verena and Denis are very attentive hosts, speak good English and couldn't have been more helpful during our stay, organising a hire car and boat trip to Los Organos with no problems. We stayed in room 5 on the top floor. Although a newer addition to the Casa, otherwise an old house, we loved the number of windows and the amount of light in the room. In the morning we fully opened all five windows and each was a picture frame for wonderful views of the mountains, sea and Tenerife's volcano. Our room was very clean and equipped with two hot plates, fridge, cutlery, kettle and coffee machine. Directly above the room is the sun terrace where we spent many lazy days watching the world go by and the ever-changing panoramic views. Breakfast was good, full of local produce like cheese, bread and sausage along with tea, coffee and juices. Verena made me Aloe Vera smoothies in the morning. We found breakfast substantial enough to keep us going until evening. Agulo is an idyllic and authentic Gomeran village about 40 minutes drive from the sea port of San Sebastián. We found the change of pace refreshing as well as relaxing, almost everyone stops work for the afternoon siesta - a great concept in the daytime heat - and no one works on Sunday. There are a few places to eat and drink in the village, we found the restaurant just around the corner was tasty and great for a couple of beers after a day of walking in the sunshine. The village has an ATM, a couple of supermarkets and there are better supplies in the walkable slightly bigger village nearby. La Gomera is unspoilt by tourism unlike some of the neighbouring islands, its great for walking with well marked trails easily enjoyed when combined with a car if you only have a few days. Overall had a lovely break, hope to return some day.
