A fantastic retreat spot for 1 or 2 people who want to live simple and very close to nature for a while, enjoy the special energy of this island and a wonderful wide view over the sea and sunsets, even from the 1.80m wide bed.
Due to the lovely mild climate with a moderate breeze on 350m beyond sealevel, living outside feels natural and the outdoor kitchen, the hot outdoor shower and the creative compost toilet invite to spend time outside.
You find 14sqm indoor and 1.6hectare of space outdoor.

The space

A lovely, on it's own, offside nature lodge in the North-West of the Canarian Island La Palma.
It is placed on 350m over sea-level, so you can enjoy a lovely mild climate, often a bit of wind (sometimes more) and some soft noises of the sea.

If you wish to use the additional gas fridge or/and the gas heater (you can both see on the pictures), please let me know. As I never used any of that while I lived in the lodge myself, only the clay flower pot you can also find on the pictures is a fix part of the lodge.

The bright, wind and water-proof 14sqm lodge with wooden floor, 1.80m wide mattress, cupboard, table and wooden chillout high-plateau, is placed close to a protected slot of rocks. Until around 2pm you can enjoy complete shade in and in front of the lodge. For the afternoons you can open part of the side wall of the lodge and enjoy the amazing view and quietness from the shaded terrace.

Any time you can fall in love with the wide sea view and the daily sunset over the sea, that you can watch from any part of the more than 1.6 hectar not built-up land around the lodge or any place in the lodge or its' own outdoor kitchen or own outdoor bathroom with hot shower.

Just a few steps further down of the lodge you can find a magic resting place under a big old pine tree.

In about 20 minutes you can walk a lovely path to the Bio-Cafe Finca Aloe in the famous Buracas, where are lots of Dragon trees and caves.
In just 5-10 minutes by foot you reach the entrance of several hiking trails as to the village of Las Tricias, Punta Gorda, to the sea Swimming pools at Lomada Grande, the beach of Callejoncito or Santo Domingo.

The next bars are in Las Tricias, about 8 minutes by car.
The next supermarkets are in Punta Gorda, about 15 minutes by car.
There are really some really good restaurants close by as the Azul in El Castillo or the Los Naranjos in Punta Gorda.

As I live on the island myself, I will show you all the details around the lodge and it's solar system for the electricity. You won't have limits around using electricity for mobile phones, notebooks or any equipements as hair-driers. As well, I am happy to give you information for beautiful trips on the island.

If you want to use internet you have several options. I usually had a stable mobile hotspot connection via mobile data, as well with my German phone card as with a Spanish prepaid card. If you want to buy a Spanish card, I can give you some recommendations. As well, there is wifi in a nice coffee and cake shop in Punta Gorda.

I myself lived for several months in this self-built nature lodge and loved it a lot and only moved to the valley as all my clients live there.

Feel free to ask me whatever you want to know,
Fabienne

Guest access

The one or two persons who rent my nature lodge will be the only ones using the outdoor sanitary facilities any time they like to.
The hot shower is heated by gas, so you can have a hot shower no matter what time of the day or how long you like to. The shower is placed in the rocky corner in front of the entrance of the lodge.
So you will feel protected while being able to watch the sea view panorama.
The dry compost toilet is placed some meters beside the house. It is not rain-sheltered, but it does not rain often, in summer time usually never ever. The toilet doesn't smell bad, as every guest will receive it completely empty. If you like to, you can pee anywhere outside and don't need to use the toilet for that.
In the outdoor kitchen you will find a sink with a warm-water-option.

Interaction with guests

I myself live about an hour South of the lodge.
We will meet at the lodge at your arrival and when you leave.
If you need further Information inbetween that time, you can call or email me.

I take 80€ caution that needs to be paid by cash with the arrival and will be given back by cash after a short check before you leave.
As well, I take 30€ for the finishing cleaning after you have left and 5€ per person for two towels each.

Other things to note

INTERNET:
If you want to use internet you have several options. The months I lived there, I usually had a stable mobile hotspot connection via mobile data, as well with my German phone card as with a Spanish prepaid card. If you want to buy a Spanish card, I can give you some recommendations. The only hours I had difficulties to enter the Internet inside the house with my mobile data hotspot was when it was very cloudy. But usually the clouds don't stay for a Long time.
As well, there is wifi in a nice coffee and cake shop in Punta Gorda.

KITCHEN:
I provide the following kitchen Equipment: quite new gas stoven with 3 flames, tableware, knives, forks, spoons, pots and pan, salt, pepper, sugar, sunfower oil.

ELECTRICITY:
The place has an own solar system with two big solar panels.
You find bright electric lights in all parts inside and around the house and outdoor kitchen and bathroom parts outside the house, apart from the compost toilet.
You won't have limits around using electricity for mobile phones, notebooks or any equipements as hair-driers.

It is a perfect place to reach several hiking paths by foot, even the next direct access to swim in the sea at Lomada Grande in about 1,5 hours hiking. In about 20 minutes you can walk a lovely path to the Bio-Cafe Finca Aloe in the famous valley-area of Buracas, where are lots of Dragon trees and caves.

In just 5-10 minutes by foot you reach the entrance of several hiking trails as to the village of Las Tricias, Punta Gorda, to the sea Swimming pools at Lomada Grande, the beach of Callejoncito or Santo Domingo.

The next bars are in Las Tricias, about 8 minutes by car.
The next supermarkets are in Punta Gorda, about 15 minutes by car.
There are really some really good restaurants close by as the Azul in El Castillo or the Los Naranjos in Punta Gorda.

Ever Saturday and Sunday you find a big market with lots of vegetables, fruits, cakes, bred, plants, handicrafts, people,... in Punta Gorda.

If you love watching the stars it is an amazing place to do that and you won't get disturbed by any lights from a village. In the close town of Las Tricias lives a man who rents telescopes and camera equipment to make pictures of the sky.

My favorite sand-beach on the island is called La Veta. You need about 30 minutes by car from the lodge to reach the parking of La Veta and another about 20 minutes to walk the stony path down to the sea.

I am and will be available for any further information :-)
I e.g. give healing touch sessions and massages for single persons, friends or couples ;-)

Ich hatte eine erholsame Zeit dort und kann mich den vorhergehenden Bewertungen nur anschließen, es ist ruhig, der Fokus auf’s Wesentliche reduziert, die Aussicht ist toll, etc. Weiterempfehlung!

Ich hatte das Glück die letzten 2 Wochen im September in Fabiennes Unterkunft zu verbringen und habe die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Die Lage, die Umgebung, die Ausblicke sind einfach fantastisch und haben mich eingeladen, sehr in dem Moment zu bleiben, zu genießen und den selbstgemachten stressigen Alltag schnell zu vergessen. Die Unterkunft gibt einem die Möglichkeit, sich auf das Wesentliche zu konzentrieren und vieles andere schnell unwichtig werden zu lassen - wenn man sich auf dieses Angebot einlassen möchte um hier vielleicht mal eine andere, neue Erfahrung zu machen. Man lebt einfach ein ganzes Stück in der Natur. Wohnzimmer, Küche, Toilette sind sozusagen in freier Natur ;-). Die Beschreibungen für die Unterkunft sind sehr detailliert und zutreffend. Die Kommunikation mit Fabienne ist prompt und problemlos möglich gewesen. Eine ganze Menge an Infos zu der Gegend dort gibt es auch von Fabienne vor Ort. Die Unterkunft war für mich auch eine gute Gelegenheit, Wanderungen zu unternehmen - sowohl in der direkten Umgebung als auch etwas weiter weg. In diesem Fall ist ein Mietwagen hilfreich, obwohl die an der Straße gelegene Bushaltestelle vielleicht eine Option wäre, die ich aber nicht ausprobiert hatte.

Ich habe mich dort wirklich sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Beschreibung entspricht so genau den Tatsachen, dass ich schon vorher wußte, dass ich hier meinen Ort gefunden habe. Es war alles so sauber geputzt und für mich liebevoll vorbereitet. Man muß wissen, dass unterhalb am Hang Gärten bzw. Häuschen sind, ich hatte es mir noch einsamer vorgestellt. Man sieht die Anderen allerdings nur, wenn man ein paar Schritte vom Häuschen aus nach vorne geht. Ich habe am allermeisten diese wunderschöne Sicht geliebt, das Leben im Freien und das Zeithaben auf dem Draußensofa, mit den extra noch fertiggenähten weichen Matratzen. Vielen Dank, Fabienne für diesen schönen Ort.

Fabienne User Profile

Seit Oktober 2016 lebe ich komplett auf der Kanareninsel La Palma.
Von den ersten Momenten an habe ich den hier sehr verbreiteten Meerblick und die Energie der Insel geliebt.
Die ersten 8 Monate lebte ich im ruhigen, schönen Nordwesten der Insel, wo ich das kleine Häuschen mit Außenküche und -bad selbst mit gebaut habe, was ich jetzt vermiete, da ich Heilsame Berührung, Massagen und eingefühltes Haare Schneiden anbiete und fast alle meine Klienten aus dem Aridanetal kommen, was eine gute Stunde südlich auf der Westseite der Insel liegt.

Weitere meiner Leidenschaften sind bewusstes Körpertraining, grundsätzlich Achtsamkeit, Lebensfreude, Hörbücher, Gärtnern und Spanisch sprechen :-)

Meine Lebensmotti sind:
"Gefällt dir etwas nicht, ändere es."
und
"Energy flows where attention goes."

Viele Grüße,
Fabienne
