It's almost bewitching hour! The year with all its ups and downs is almost at a close and very soon we shall have a bright and shining star in the form of a new year. I wonder what it will bring? Hopefully a holiday on La Palma!
It's always a good time though to reflect on what the past year has brought and we feel that we have been incredibly lucky to be living in such a beautiful place as La Palma and on a finca where the views - even for La Palma - are simply outstanding. Even today, I was taken by surprise as I came up from the barranco and the house came into the sight. The whole house looked like it was floating on the sea! But luckily it wasn't.
We also feel incredibly lucky to have had so many wonderful guests from so many countries which include those from far, far away from La Palma such as from America, Scandanavia and Latvia. And of course visitors come to La Palma for all sorts of different reasons - those who come for a love of walking amid nature and tranquility or those who take up the challenge of walking the GR130 right around the island. Or guests who are amateur astronomers and even bring their own telescopes ... or to paint or finish that final draft of their book. And those who want to relax and recharge their green batteries.
Whatever the reason, we are so pleased that people choose La Palma as their holiday destination.
And so we would like to say a huge 'thank you' to all our guests from the past year and also to look forward to welcoming new and returning guests. Thank you! And we wish you a wonderful New Year in 2012.
Ann and David.
