A picture-postcard hamlet in La Gomera
The countryside around Chejelipe in the east of La Gomera is shaped by its three reservoirs; three oases surrounded by fertile crops and delightful palm groves. The small houses that form this little village close to the island capital, sit on the slopes of the La Villa ravine and create an image that’s hard to equal. With just under 50 inhabitants, this isolated corner, though easy to get to, is a peaceful haven.
Take in La Gomera’s landscape from its lookout points
The rugged terrain has often meant the use of forklifts to bring essential items to the village residents. The walls of the weirs can be crossed and from here you can catch incredible views of Chejelipes, making them particularly special viewing points to capture a memory in your mind or with a camera. You mustn’t leave without trying the barbecued rabbit served in the area.
