We have just come back from a fabulous holiday in the Canaries.  It was a major surprise for both of us – a beautiful quiet hotel – gorgeous and varied scenery .  It is a unesco world heritage site.
The following three images are all views from our lovely Hotel, Paradore….

 If you would like one of these it is really easy to purchase them from me, as I  have set up a simple buy print/framing service with of Shaftesbury, who have looked after me and framed my paintings  for many years. I am including a brief bit of Info about the island….

After El Hierro, La Gomera is the smallest of the Canary Islands, with a surface area of 378 square kilometres, approximately 10 percent of which is covered by the Garajonay National Park which has been declared a Mankind Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Island, in the centre of the westernmost part of the Canary Islands, between La Palma, El Hierro and Tenerife, is the ideal setting for outdoor activities throughout the year. 

A walk though charming little villages will take you through the rugged terrain, with surprises in store around every bend in the road. The natural wealth of the whole Island is so impressive that it has, in fact, won the highest possible distinction as a protected natural space. 

Benign temperatures make it easy to enjoy activities like rural tourism or trekking. La Gomera is a wonder of countless beautiful tracks and trails.
And the trade winds, which bring welcome rains, have generated a lush vegetation of interesting native species that in turn encourage the formation of clouds that give its forests a certain other worldly charm.
