Vision & Family History

Terra Fortunata SA is a property development company that has been created by Petter Olsen to provide discerning clients with a perfect environment to establish a second life in an ideal location with a perfect climate, and a pleasant and rewarding natural and social environment. We are located next to Playa de Santiago, a charming fishing village about 40 minutes from the island capital San Sebastian. This peaceful gem has all the facilities to meet most needs, with some very pleasant restaurants.

The location of La Gomera, away from the mass tourism locations provides the ideal conditions to develop an environment that will appeal to those who can combine peace and relaxation with intellectual, artistic and physical pleasures.

The island has countless possibilities for hiking, sailing, deep sea fishing and a multitude of other activities. The local population is friendly and there is virtually no crime on the island. The infrastructure is well developed with an excellent road network.

Our team are ready to welcome our clients and to assist with every conceivable need, such as local knowledge, bookings, transport, cleaning, gardening and maintenance services. Our team is there to help. We are developing an organic fruit and vegetable farm to ensure a healthy food supply, and the local fishermen will always have exciting fresh catch for sale every morning. It is our dream to create an environment where our clients will feel secure, comfortable and inspired tom make the best of their second life.

We believe that there is a large and growing customer segment that is looking for precisely the offering we believe it is possible to develop on La Gomera. This segment is highly mobile both geographically and professionally and is characterized by a high activity level. When they take precious time off they wish to relax and regenerate. ”Packaged entertainment” would offend their intelligence. They need high quality “components” that can help them to package their own experiences.

Welcome to La Gomera

My family has had an enduring relationship with La Gomera starting in the early 20th Century. Our story was a classic case of adventurous Norwegian mariners eying opportunities to grow subtropical fruit and vegetables and open up the market in the northern parts of Europe. This of course had to include shipping routes.

My father had many happy years on the island, and from my childhood I have grown to love it. La Gomera is accessible but somehow spared the madness of modern mass tourism. Its population is small and friendly, its scenery spectacular, and the pace reassuringly free from stress.
I have made it my ambition to share this treasure with those who can see its value. My idea is to enable the development of hotels, private properties and a range of accommodation that will appeal to the discerning traveller to build quality
