Our story


In 1988 the family van Vooren baught the place  place as a "ruin" with downfallen  houses. They spend 25 years to tranform it to what it is today ,a garden of Eden. In octobre 2018 Birgitte&Ernst Fries took over the property.

Beside our own house it contains 5 rural houses in different sizes surrounded by a subtropical garden of approx. 5000m2 , all recontructed in local style and where ever possible  with old materials, designed to be sensetive to the topographical qualities of the site but with all comfort.

They are orientated towards the beautiful vieuws and sunlight, a setting in a small vulcanic valley and drifts of vegetation are being used to add softness to the houses as well as defining the spaces between them. 

From your terrace you can see "El Teide", the highest mountian of Spain, snow covered in wintertime.

The Finca is situated on the edge of  a small village hidden away on the green side of Tenerife, this village is a small agriculture community with around 3500 inhabitants. The area is a paradise for people who love nature and fresh air, and we can find many hiking path around with magnificent sights and spectacular vieuws.

The village is 10 min walk from the Finca, has different shops and  further all the facilities one needs.

On this part of the island we also find the old cities with a lot of history representing the original canary islands culture and tradition, like Orotava and Garachico which once was the most important harbor of Tenerife until 1706 when lava streams covered it partly and Icod the los Vinos with it´s thousand year old dragontree, ten minutes drive from the Finca,  a local beach you will find 15min drive away.

We invite you to share with us this beautiful place.
