Hacienda Cristoforo
Ranked #5 of 34 Speciality Lodging in Adeje
Reviewed 30 June 2014

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.

I am not normally one for reviews but this place was quite simply paradise. A tranquill retreat with beautifully designed houses, wooden carved tables and chairs, a refreshing swimming pool and even a little farm! The minute I walked in I felt completely relaxed and removed from the stresses of fast paced life.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience staying at Hacienda Cristoforo. Set against a backdrop of mountains, no more than a few miles from the Atlantic ocean and designed with genuine care and originality it is a place to rejuvenate and explore the rest of the island. Made up of multiple traditional stone built houses with an individual style, each building has been dreamt up to offer a peaceful and comfortable stay. In a compound full of trees, plants, flowers, water fountains, swimming pools, vegetable patches and animals there is no better place to chill out. The retreat also offers a range of different alternative therapies, classes and participatory workshops. Whilst we were there, we were lucky enough to enjoy a classical music concert with a modern twist held in one of the beautiful halls. Denis couldn't be a better host, he was always present to answer any queries we had and let us in some of the many secrets to living long and well at Hacienda Cristoforo!

Hacienda Cristoforo is a beautiful retreat from life's usual fast pace. Everything is done simply here. Picking vegetables from the garden, feeding the animals or watering the plants with recycled water from the lodgings- Cristoforo offers peace, space and light.

Thank you Denis!

When you step into Cristoforo, it's like stepping into a different world; a world of peace, calm and tranquility. The buildings are beautiful and the whole space has been designed and built using wood and stone by the owner, Dennis, who is always on hand to welcome you and make your stay extra special, as are the staff.

Whilst we were there, there were a number of different seminars, yoga and meditation classes and concerts that you could get involved in, as well as holistic therapies and massages. You have full use of the pool and surrounding decking - very relaxing especially with the water trickling down the mini waterfall.

The location is great too - there are a number of beaches a 5 min drive down the road, or if you're looking for something more upbeat, larger towns and beaches are just a 15min drive.

Could not recommend Cristoforo more! Will definitely be going back :)

The photos don't do it justice!

Christoforo is a small piece of paradise in the middle of the crowdy resorts and tourist factories.
Here you will find serenity, peace, and slowness. Dennis, the owner, welcomes you with an endless smile and shares his universe with simplicity.
Here you will find a little village ( no more than 6 - 8 small houses) built by Dennis, a former architect. Each residences has a name, a story, a situation directly linked to the spirit of the place.
Here you will find what you didn't expect to find. A Rudolf Steiner's school for example with a kitchen garden whose products are suggested in a vegetarian meal. Moreover, an ever running water's swimming pool will refresh and enjoy your living days in there. Every details, from air shafts to the wood pieces who furnishes the house would deserved a description but better see by your own.
We are eager to spend an other week in this beautiful and peaceful world.

I have been to Cristoforo many times and it has always been a magical experience. There is beauty everywhere around you. It's wonderful place to relax and " disconnect" from it all. Highly recommendable !
