Finca Chafariz – Tabayesco
Finca Chafariz is a classic Canarian Country house situated on a 10.000m2 plot outside the little village of Tabayesco, surrounded by nature and small vegetable plots on the terraces. The house has a large central living space with access to the kitchen, the conservatory and the hall that leads to the bedrooms, situated around this central high ceilinged lounge. It offers ample seating, with a dining area for up to 10 people.
The adjoining conservatory has a second sitting room, and a smaller dining table boasting beautiful views of the valley and ocean beyond. The kitchen is fully fitted with a 4 burner cooker, oven, fridge/freezer, blender, toaster, mixer, etc. The kitchen table also seats 6 people. Our spacious master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower. There are two further bedrooms, both contain twin beds (one of them with the option of a double bed if required) plus guest bathroom.
The house and surrounding garden were recently thoroughly refurbished to create a delightful holiday hide-away for couples and families in a very privileged location. There are no direct neighbours, thus ensuring absolute peace, quiet and privacy but with most amenities almost on your doorstep.
To the outside is a terraced garden with many endemic plants and trees, typical for this subtropical dry-zone area. There are several relaxing chill-out areas for outdoor living including an original tree trunk gazebo and a large wooden lounging bench with a spectacular view of the valley, onwards to the sea and the village of Arrieta.
A large sheltered courtyard surrounded by a natural stone wall houses the swimming pool. The pool sits embedded lower into the floor for depth and sits partly above ground in order to enhance child safety (3x5x1.20m). The pool is heated by a solar panel installation twice the size of the pool itself which is on average large enough to keep a pleasant temperature most of the year. However a spell of cloudy weather for a couple of days in winter can bring the temperature down some degrees.
Next to the pool there is a wooden terrace, ideal for sunbathing and relaxing. The pleasant lighting creates a cosy atmosphere for night-time use, especially as the courtyard is well sheltered from the wind. A pergola made of recycled roof-timbers and adorned with ivy means there is shade during the day -a perfect sitting area with a little pond and waterfall for extra tranquillity. The outdoor areas have been well thought out, providing guests with a very pleasant space for anything from an early breakfast, to a barbecue-evening under a spectacular starry night sky. The house has its own power supply from a sophisticated solar power installation making the most of our sunny climate.
Finca Chafariz lies 1.2km from the village of Tabayesco and is almost completely self-supporting. Electricity is generated by a series of solar panels which is stored in large batteries. Warm water is provided by a solar panel on the roof – if the sky has clouded over for more than a few days the gas water heater takes over.
The La Garita beach and the local fishing village of Arrieta are a few minutes away by car car, Haria village is under 10 minutes car journey or for a livelier outing you can reach Costa Teguise resort or the island capital of Arrecife within around 15 – 20 minutes.
