We love this home’s distinctive butterfly silhouette and vintage Bauhaus inspired design. A unique conceptual response to the island landscape, this holiday rental skillfully pairs the contemporary and natural worlds.
Situated in an idyllic and secluded location along the west coast of La Palma island, this holiday rental in Spain is perched gracefully along the steep terrain overlooking spectacular views of the Atlantic and broad stretches of the island landscapes.
Designed by award winning Berlin based architects Kazanski Keilhacker Urban Design Architektur, the structure resembles a three dimensional sculpture, its diamond-shaped roof modeled on the wings of a butterfly. Respectful and responsive to the natural topography and unique qualities of the site, the home’s design attributes correspond to the island’s changing climate and weather elements.
Layered over two floors connected by an external staircase, the upper floor forms the heart of the property with bright sunlit interiors and floor to ceilings windows that invite the panoramic views inside. Sliding inter-connecting door screens enable the living room and bedrooms to be enlarged creating an open space with a central fireplace and an adjoining terrace with magnificent views. The ground floor is clad in natural stone where an additional bedroom, kitchen and dining area overlook the ocean, gardens and terraces. Furnished throughout with prestigious pieces from Saarinen, Jacobsen, Lissoni and Starck, the decor has both a contemporary and vintage inspired aesthetic.
Meticulously landscaped, the expansive grounds include a dining area with pergola and cozy lounge pavilion adjacent to the pool with many vantage points for spectacular sunsets. Depending on your requirements you can book just one floor or the entire house, each set against the endless horizon of the Atlantic.
We do everything we can to make sure you have a comfortable stay at Villa Gran Atlantico. On arrival, you can choose to be greeted by a basket containing traditional almond loaf, fresh fruit and vegetables from the local organic shop and a selection of La Palma goat’s cheeses. Use the professional-grade blender to make yourself a smoothie with the island’s mouth-watering fruits − depending on the time of year, you can even get them straight from Villa Gran Atlantico’s own kitchen garden. You’ll find everything you need in the kitchen, from herbs and spices to cookery books, Siemens appliances and a large Nespresso machine − the coffee’s on us! Fresh fish can be ordered daily from the local fishmonger. There’s also a picnic basket to take with you on your day trips.
One thing we really recommend is treating yourself to a luxurious bath while taking in the ocean vistas as the almond wood crackles beside you in the fireplace − an unforgettable experience! Soft, fluffy towels and Egyptian cotton bed linen are provided for your comfort.
You are, of course, also free to enjoy our collection of books, CDs and DVDs.
Wi-Fi throughout, satellite cable TV and stereo audio system. Weekly cleaning is included for longer stays with optional housekeeping during shorter stays available for additional fee, laundry facilities.
Declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, La Palma is the greenest of the Canary Island chain off northwestern Africa, with an intoxicating mix of rugged terrain that includes both lush rainforests in the north and arid deserts in the south as well as the volcanic formations of Teneguía, Cumbre Vieja and Taburiente National Park. The house is within a five minute drive of the picturesque 16th century town of Puntagorda along the western coast as well as the Montaña des Matos hills that criss cross the interior where the famed dragon trees dot the hillsides. The spectacular coastline and black sand beaches of Tazacorte are within a thirty minute drive with boat tours and whale watching departing from neighboring Puerto de Tazacorte.
