The small scattered settlement of Tazo lies like a palm tree oasis in the fertile green Barranco de Tazo in the northwest of La Gomera. In Tazo, a few locals and newcomers live spread out in the valley, as well as a few dogs, cats, chicken, peacocks and goats. What makes Tazo special is its remote, quiet location, the mostly sunny climate and the open, wide views of the valley and the sea.
Here, the palm sap „Guarapo“ is extracted from the countless palm trees, which is boiled down to „Miel de Palma“ called palm honey. The palm honey is used by the Gomeros to refine traditional desserts and baked goat cheese. And of course it will not be missing from our breakfast, the „Miel de Palma“ from our neighbour, extracted from the local palm trees!
Around Tazo you can go hiking and mountain biking, we will be happy to arrange a guide who will go hiking or biking with you. Also in the neighbourhood, ayurvedic and energetic massages are offered afterwards. Vallehermoso and Valle Gran Rey are 30/45 minutes away by car. A rental car makes sense if you want to explore the island a little. To get there it is a bit of a drive, most of it is tarmac, a few places are easy tracks but can be done by normal cars. We also rent out an off-road vehicle on a daily basis. If you just want to relax or go hiking around Tazo, you will be fine without a car. We will be happy to pick you up from the bus stop „Epina“ or in Vallehermoso and to take you with us when we go shopping in Vallehermoso or in Valle Gran Rey. There are no shops or bars in Tazo, so you should bring enough food with you! You don’t need water, we have our own spring here. We serve a small breakfast in the morning that can be booked additionally and a neighbour cooks meals for our guests on request.
