Lomo de San Andreas, Tao
Our farmhouse is situated in a secluded (but not isolated) area on the edge of the village of Tao, overlooking Famara beach which is less than 15 minutes drive away. We bought the property 25 years ago when it was a ruin with no running water or electricity, and had a donkey living in it. Over the years my wife Dianne and I have gently renovated the whole place but retained the same characteristics that returning guests love so much. Some of the walls are 2-3 foot thick and all the roofs have been replaced. Our neighbours are German are great friends, they also look after the farmhouse. As they are vegans, they naturally only drink water or homemade soft drinks. When potential guests ask if the area is noisy, we say ” if there is any noise – its you making it, but our neighbours can’t hear you!”
The farmhouse has its own driveway leading to the front (west facing) terrace. Through the double doors leads into the hallway with the main bedroom ensuite off to the left. Continuing ahead is the inner patio about 4/5 mtrs high.
Leading off the patio is the twin bedroom the family shower room, the luxury all-white kitchen with built-in eye level oven fridge freezer induction hob, pull out cupboards for drawers.
The dining room, a double ensuite bedroom are also off the patio. Immediatly right from the main hallway leads to the inner hallway and into the front lounge with TV and dozens of channels including loads of sports channels. and onto pool terrace.
The dining room leads off from the kitchen and into the Club Iguana, where there is an original quarter sized snooker table that can also allow pool to be played.
Additionally there is a bar and a TV monitor with connection to a DVD player, also a connection for a memory stick. next door is the Utility room with sink cupboards and washing machine etc. Also from the patio is stairs leading to another double bedroom with fabulous views over Famara.
Beach towels bed linen and towels are provided.
