It can be quite the challenge to look for that perfect holiday home, but this sweet Bougainvilla cottage should make it easier for you. Nestled on the slope of a clove, the B-cottage overlooks its own private lush green garden, its pool, the desert like arid natural space of the clove and the Arico mountains in the distance. Here, beauty lays within the contrasts.Show more
Arico is quite different from the rest of the island. Only a small amount of people had settled here, mainly living of the land. Over the years the large vast dry landscape made it uneasy to live, the source of income shifted to tourism and the few little villages became desolate. In recent years people moved back in, some out of necessity, but most because they liked the authenticity of Arico. This is exactly where the municipality still stands today: It’s authentic, peaceful, with small villages where time seems to stand still.
La Bougainvilla is a lovely little place for two to relax and to isolate from the world. The small kitchen is well equipped and connected to the little living room, the bedroom overlooks the garden with its pool and the terrace. The decoration is minimal and tasteful.
We wanted to be as close as possible to the climbing areas, without giving up too much comfort and having good WiFi. We got great service and felt the house was great value for little money.
Staying at the house was such a real experience in itself, there’s nothing going on in the village and it’s a bit of a drive to get to the supermarket or restaurant but that didn’t bother us.
It is extremely quiet at the lodge and everything was exquisite, we didn’t miss anything, and everyone is very helpful. Parking is in the street, but fairly easy. All in all a great holiday house.
