Great care was taken during restauration of Casa El Abuelo to maintain the original structure.

Even inside the Holiday House you can find some original preserved objects like the headboard of the single bed, a lovely wooden chest, bed side tables as well as an old sewing machine that was converted into a table.

Walls are decorated with various hand stitched pictures.

The Holiday House wins you over with its original style and its unique hillside location with a fantastic view of the natural Barranco (canyon).

Casa El Abuelo is located in Velhoco, a part of Santa Cruz de la Palma, 4km from the town centre.


Its hillside location below the main road, 250 meters below sea level, offers many hours of sunshine throughout the year.

The restaurant Los Almendros is only 10 walking minutes from the Holiday House. Two other restaurants, the Chipi-Chipi and the grill restaurant in Las Nieves are located within 5-10 driving minutes. The restaurant is located next to a beautiful church. From there a hike starts into the Barranco de Madera.

In Breña Alta there are a variety of good restaurants like Casa Osmunda, that offers great food and a lovely atmosphere. 


San Pedro de Breña Baja is only 5-10 driving minutes from the Holiday House. It is also the centre of the local cigar manifacture. In small plants most of the thick Puros ("the pure ones") consumed on the islands, are rolled. The tobacco used for production is cultivated in the surrounding area. The handmade Palmerian Puros were also preferred by Winston Churchill.

In San Pedro a farmer's market takes place on weekends, where you can buy fresh products from the island.

There are also two museums: the tobacco museum and the museum about the history of the crosses (complementary to the hiking tour of the same name).

Those who prefer to cater for themselves will find many large, well selected supermarkets nearby.
