This corner of the Canaries is steeped in history, and the village of Llanos, in the Aridane Valley, has plenty of fine old squares, buildings and churches. Hotel Amberes is a perfectly restored 17thC patrician house, and the husband and wife team who run it have filled it with paintings and a host of items from their travels. The cooking draws heavily on fresh local produce, and, as the Valle de Aridane forms the largest cultivated area of banana and avocado on the islands, expect some pretty incredible salads and sauces. Breakfasts are served outside, in the patio courtyard. You will also find a lovely fountain and walled garden be sure to ask for a bedroom with one of the traditional dark wood and tile balconies that look out on to this peaceful space. We think that the food slightly outweighs the accommodation. Not an expensive place, but well run, offering charm and value for money.
