We live just around the corner from this Villa Delmas, so we were intrigued when the property was refurbished and opened as a “Casa Emblemática” and as a lovely rural boutique hotel.
Villa Delmas was originally built in the 18th century, making it one of the oldest surviving properties on the island. In the Perdomo family for many years, there’s a lovely reminder of the history in one of the public areas, showing the family tree.
The grounds are beautiful, with mature gardens offering shady chill out areas and a Manrique style swimming pool (and yes, he did design it!) And there’s a small spa area with hot tub and sauna. Inside, many of the original features have been retained, including the original wooden flooring in places. There’s a fabulous central courtyard area with shade sails, but modern conveniences are to be found as well – the whole place has air conditioning and WIFI.
Each room at Villa Delmas is unique and is named, but they are all beautifully appointed and have high quality fixtures, with marble bathroom suites, for example.
A continental breakfast is available, and a cooked breakfast can be prepared. There’s a communal living room, and what was the study is now reception and guest are encouraged to sit down and relax with a glass of cava while they are checking into Villa Delmas.
There are a range of luxury extras which can be added to a stay and they include luxury car collection and drop off at the airport, chef’s tasting menus and even a butler service.
There are new rooms being added currently using out buildings, so the choice of rooms will increase in the near future.
The location of Villa Delmas is amazing for easy access to the north of the island – close to Arrieta beach, Orzola fish restaurants and the island of La Graciosa, and Haria itself has a couple of decent restaurants, a sociedad and a fabulous Saturday morning craft and produce market. We’d recommend hiring a car when staying here.
