Serene Oasis in natural surrounding with gorgeous view

El Retiro is ideal for couples or a family with two children.

The Holiday House has been completely renovated in 2017.

The entire outdoor area has been lovingly designed by the Spanish landlady.

During their stay guests are welcome to pick organic vegetables, herbs and fruits fresh from the garden.

There is a fantastic sea view from the front terrace as well as from the lower terrace where the barbecue area is located.

The lower terrace is also a perfect place to enjoy marvellous sunsets. 

The pool area is lovingly designed with colourful flower beds and shady palm trees. 

There is a small lawn for sunbathing and loungers for relaxing as well as a cosy seating area.

The terraced outdoor area also features a large Canary festivity hall with hand painted wall decoration, a barbecue and a Bodega (wine cellar).  

The Bodega und the festivity hall remain closed for guests. 

From a duration of stay of 14 days the owner once invites guests for a typical, Canary dinner.

On that occasion the festivity hall will be opened. Gathering round the table you learn more about the country and its people. Moreover, you can enjoy more entertainment facilities like table soccer, billiard or a telescope.

On your arrival you are welcomed in the Bodega with an own-brand wine. 

Living Area and Bedrooms

The typical Canary-style has been preserved and gives the Holiday Home a very special touch.

The fitted kitchenette is part of the spacious living room.

There is also a dining table and chairs.

If you prefer outdoor breakfast the beautiful roofed terrace is just the right place.

El Retiro features a total of 3 bedrooms:

A small bedroom for children with a bunk bed, an access bedroom with a double bed and the main bedroom with a double bed. 

The access bedroom and the children's bedroom are acoustically not separated due to the fact there is a Canary wood gable ceiling and the partition wall is opened at the top.

The bathroom with a shower and a toilet is lovely designed and fits perfectly with the other fittings.
