Hacienda Cristoforo

Peace and Tranquility

Peace and Positive Energy

HACIENDA CRISTÓFORO is a place of peace and tranquility located in the south of Tenerife. Forty-four years ago there was nothing here but an arid, plain and rocky landscape devoid of vegetation. Nevertheless, the wild environment and the natural energy of the place sparked the imagination of its founder and architect, Denis Devaris.

An artist and therapist, he was inspired to create a retreat for like-minded people where they could live out and realize their ideas through workshops, seminars and activities. Today it’s an ecological centre which can accommodate individual retreats and group activities. It’s located just 15-minute walk from the coast.


CHacienda Cristoforo is completely unique. Each lodge has been built using simple materials (mostly wood & stone) and they all have their own individual character. Each of the small, medium and large lodges combine to create what could be described as a small village hideaway.

It is a place that just makes you smile. , due to the immensely human(e) way everything was designed (serendipity, simplicity, love for nature come to mind). Don’t expect 24-hr pampering and luxury, Hacienda Cristoforo is not that kind of place. This is a space to relax and enjoy a break from pressures of everyday life, to soak up nature and to appreciate the genuine atmosphere away from the consumerism and the usual standard tourism fare.

All the accommodation here is simple, quirky and full of character.
