Hacienda Cristoforo is a true gem for those who would love to tune out of the modern world and to connect with healing, natural beauty. The village was constructed over decades as an holistic center by its Greek architect owner Denis Devaris in accordance with ideas within modernism as esthetical strategies to promote spiritual wellbeing. This oasis of peace hosts the services of a number of core practitioners of alternative therapies on the Canary islands, and makes up a striking contrast to the mainstream tourism next door. It also offers the sweetest little kindergarden open to small visitors, vegetable gardens, a small farm of sheep, a mule and ducklings wandering freely around. Here you can chose Ayurvedic massages, Mexican temazcalli-therapy, daily yoga classes, or belly dancing. The stone cottages are named after fairy tales or eastern philosophy - a living proof that the eco-house is not a modern invention.
Highly recommended if you are looking for the real thing, and conscious travelling.
