Your hire car's satnav will come into play in finding Finca Arminda. It's only a ten-minute drive from the airport but there are no signposts and the B&B is not clearly marked. Unless you're a hardcore biker or hiker, you will need to rely on four wheels to get around. Buy fresh fruit and veg, crafts and hand-rolled cigars at Villa de Mazo's weekend municipal market, open 9am-2pm.

By plane: flights from London take around 9 hours with a stop in Barcelona; flights from Birmingham take around 11 hours with a stop in Tenerife. The hotel is a 1o-minute drive from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to La Palma.

Arminda loved to paint, and there are examples of her floral artwork throughout the property, along with family relics. Inside the rooms, the pictures are more reverential with an obvious religious overtone. Statues in the style of the Italian Renaissance take in the Florentine-style sunshine in the garden.


If you don't speak Spanish, you're very much left to your own devices. If you do, the staff are happy to enlighten you about the property's rich history. A bijou pool allows you to cool off, especially if you have just returned from trekking one of the trails in the area.

The six rooms go big on wood, with their heavy wooden doors, solid beds, ornate mirrors, and sturdy shutters. The original stone floor remains, as does the rest of the furniture, reminding you of Finca Arminda's glorious past. The walls are so thick that the Wi-Fi doesn't work that well.

Room types: Double Room, Triple Room, Family Suite

Key amenities: ensuite bath or shower, tea and coffee facilities, TV, desk


Finca Arminda only offers bed and breakfast, but it's a desayuno that will set you up for the rest of the day. Fruit-filled smoothies are your five a day in a glass. There are generous platters of cheese, meat, and fruit. Crusty bread and strong coffee complete the breakfast menu.

Breakfast: continental spread of bread, meat, cheeses, fruit.
