I have always been fascinated by special places, places that differ from others by offering something that makes them unique. When I first arrived here in Lanzarote, I knew that the island was special and when I entered the door of this house for the first time, I knew this was where I belonged. It brings me great satisfaction to be able to share with you, dear guests, this beautiful place. I hope you enjoy it.

The house, a heritage asset protected by the Government of the Canary Islands, dates from approximately the first half of the 18th century. It is a “terrera house”, a popular building that once served as a traditional agricultural house for farmlands and livestock.
The materials used are very basic, local stone, wood and lime, but very effective in isolating from humidity and heat, as well as being totally sustainable. These types of buildings are perfectly integrated into the landscape and the natural surroundings of Lanzarote; and form a huge part of the island´s unique identity.
The main structure, walls, central patio, wooden floors, some stone pavements, the era, and many unique elements, such as the still in the main patio, the volcanic stone basin, niches, cupboards and windows are preserved intact from the original construction. All of this enhances the historical value of the building and connects us with the traditional way of life in Lanzarote.
The various interventions carried out over the years for the purposes of its restoration, conservation and finally adaptation to a hotel, have been undertaken with the utmost respect of the building, keeping its original integrity.
The location of the house is very advantageous, set in a rural environment and at the same time it offers easy access to all the services you may need, like: supermarkets, pharmacies, shops and restaurants of all kinds, police or heath center. The municipality of Tías is very diverse, with beaches and rural environments, it encompasses bustling tourist centers and small agricultural towns. The stunning area of La Geria and the beaches of Puerto del Carmen are among the best on the island and should definitely be highlighted on the list of places to visit. In the urban zone of Tías there are several examples of typical churches and the fascinating house-museum of the writer and Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, who lived in Tías for his last 17 years and wrote some of his best works here.
