A picturesque hamlet of traditional houses and beautiful gardens
The valley of El Golfo, in the north of El Hierro, is dotted with many small villages. One of these in particular stands out for its charm: Los Llanillos. Close to the coast, it is known for its beautifully kept traditional houses with their flat roofs and bare corner stones. The delightful gardens of the houses, with their colourful flowers are also worth mentioning, and make a stroll around the streets of Los Llanillos a treat for the senses.
The perfect place for a peaceful holiday in El Hierro
Many of these traditional houses have been turned into rural hotels, meaning that Los Llanillos has a wide variety of options when it comes to this type of accommodation. This hamlet is perfect for a relaxing break in what is already a very peaceful island, where your only tasks for the day are to sit on the terrace of one of these lovely houses and listen to the sound of silence, to take a stroll through the local orchards or pop down to the Charco Azul beach to enjoy the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. This is all on offer to those in search of a different kind of holiday.
