The detached Holiday House is nestled on a 3.500 m² property with a marvellous view of the sea and the mountains. 


Casa Monarca is a 100% environment-friendly and energy self-sufficient Holiday Home.

From May to November the Monarch Butterfly Danaus Plexippus frequents the property.

The Holiday House owes its name to the butterfly species »Monarch«.


This species doesn't thrive without their host plant »Asclepias« (milkweed), that is cultivated around the Holiday House.

To witness the metamorphosis of a Monarch Butterfly is indeed an emblematic and unique experience.

The Canary Islands offer excellent climate conditions for the reproduction of the endangered butterfly species.

Sharing the magic of the Monarch Butterfly with the rest of the world...

On the property there are an orchard, a large sunbathing area shielded from wind with loungers and hammocks and an area with free range chicken.

The interior is dominated by a very comfortable living room with a cosy sofa and hand woven carpets as well as a wood-burning oven for cooler months.

The double bed is located on an elevated platform and offers storage space on both sides and underneath. 

There are also a fully equipped kitchen with a small dining area and a bathroom with a shower and toilet.

The decoration is focused on handicraft and simplicity, so that you mainly find handmade and fair trade products.

All textiles and bed linen are made of natural fibres, 100% cotton, the painting is ecological and therefore also suitable for allergy sufferers.

Living in a 100% environment-friendly and sustainable ambience


The Holiday Home is powered by a photovoltaic system, a wind generator and solar panels for water heating.


An inverter transforms the stored electricity into 220 V, a power generator ensures energy supply in adverse weather conditions - which will be rarely the case with an average of 3000 hours sunshine per year.

The non-potable water is treated and used for garden irrigation.

Guests of the Holiday House are invited to become part of the careful utilization of resources.
