Welcome to Casa Astro La Palma

Astro-tourism on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands) : How to associate the passion of Astronomy and the tourist discovery in a preserved natural setting?

Casa Astro La Palma, the inevitable rendezvous of astronomers … and other curious people of the sky.

It is on the heights of Las Tricias – northwest coast of the island and on the road joining to The observatory Roque de Los Muchachos  – at 950m altitude (to observe the sky it’s better to be closer!) that Sylvie and Fabrice welcome you in their vast property and offer a charming apartment with individual access. A bed and breakfast in the spirit, to come and recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of the world urban centers.
