We loved this place - it has so much going for it. For one thing the rooms are beautifully furnished, decorated and equipped (it is a pleasure to find good knives and pans in the kitchen); for another there is an enormous terrace with wonderful views of the mountains and sea; then the owner, Elke not only speaks good English but she puts fresh flowers on the table and is a source of all kinds of helpful information; and then, less than a hundred yards away, there is a really terrific restaurant, El Faro, which serves great food at very reasonable prices.

We liked the location too. It is on the quieter, North side of the island, and there are endless walks from the door amid scenery of spectacular beauty, and all of them well maintained and signposted.

We stayed in the Girasol apartment of Finca Los Veroles for 8 days, including the new year. The apartment, although small at around 40sqm, is excellent and very thoughtfully laid out. It was spotlessly clean, the kitchen well-equipped, and the furnishings were all very comfortable. Michael and Elke, the owners, were friendly and very responsive when booking and giving directions for arrival. They also provided us with fresh fruit from their garden and a pot of homemade jam during our stay. There's also a supply of essentials you can purchase while there and the option for local fresh bread to be delivered daily. If you're looking for a base for a walking holiday on La Gomera or looking for a place to relax and unwind, then I'd strongly recommend Los Veroles.

We had a hire car (Cicar), which made exploring the island easier. There are, however, many walks available direct from the Finca. There's a small number of restaurants/bars within walking distance, but the facilities are more than adequate for preparing simple meals. The terrace is a sun trap and a beautiful place to watch the sunsets and stars.

Room Tip: All of the apartments seemed excellent.

Just spent a week here. Accommodation was superb. Spotlessly clean, owners very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend staying at Los Veroles. Situation is excellent as close to sea and numerous walks. Great views from terraces overlooking banana plantations. Rather than hiring a car used local taxi service to get us to start of walks and lovely coastal walk to Agulo for lunch. Accommodation is in great position with great restaurant nearby and Pedros bar if you just want a light refreshment or Tapas. Made to feel very welcome by locals and owners. Michael and Elke are very friendly approachable and happy to fetch fresh morning rolls for your breakfast each day. Spar shop nearby for all other shopping requirements. Would highly recommend this accommodation, would be very hard to find better.

Room Tip: Superb views and situation

Are you looking to get away from it? This is it!! Read all the recent reviews about this property; it's hard to top them with more compliments.There 3 individual apartments, all incredably well maintained and equipped. At your request fresh bread is delivered daily by 8:30 AM. Fresh fruit from the hosts farm magically appear daily. This place gives you everything that is La Gomera, the mountains and ocean, plus peace and quiet . There's easy access to the highway system for exploring the island and a Spar to pickup needed groceries. Even the real boss "Herr Rooster" doesn't crow till after the first cup of coffee. El Faro, 50m down the road is an excellent restaurant. If you feel like a beer with the boys, Pilot Bar a further 10m is a great little spot at 5PM.
My wife and I give this our highest recommendation, it was very hard to leave. Many thanks to Elke and Michael for their kindness and hospitality.

Room Tip: Any and all are excellent.

What else can I write? All the previous reviews describe exactly what I'd like to say!
Lovely decorated, clean apartments with amazing view on the sea & mountains and on good days you can even see El Teide on Tenerife.
The owners are very friendly and hospitable. Fresh fruits & eggs are supplied from their own farm, and when ordered, bread is supplied daily at 8.30.
For our baby a nice cot was prepared and a high chair was there as well. Elke washed some of our clothes on request and when I told her we wanted to go to the beach, she gave us an extra umbrella for the baby.
Hermigua is a lovely green valley, quiet and not so touristic, but still enough nice restaurants/bars are there to go to in the evening. But the nicest place to relax is the terrace in front of the apartments. Can only recommend this place.
