The Property & the House

Manacén

"Manacén" is the pre-conquest native language name of the property, perhaps meaning something like "overlooking the wheat fields". The property was originally a “sitio” – a homestead for an extended family.

The property, has been reconditioned to meet the requirements of modern living. The use of traditional materials gives a feeling of warmth and permanence while respect for the ancient layout provides “passive” air conditioning throughout the year.

If you’ve got this far, most likely you’re not looking for a pseudo-ranch or Roman villa, the categories the majority of stand-alone properties on the islands fall into. You’re probably one of those rare discerning persons that want a home to live in, whether permanently or for part of the year. This is it!

The property, originally a homestead for an extended family, has been reconditioned to meet the requirements of modern living. The use of traditional materials gives a feeling of warmth and permanence while respect for the ancient layout provides “passive” air conditioning throughout the year.

The house itself has grown over generations in response to the environment and the family’s needs in a way that no architect could ever have imagined. We have honoured that tradition as we reconditioned the building to meet the requirements of modern living. Not without reason, for the combination of traditional materials gives a feeling of warmth and permanence while respect for the ancient layout provides “passive” air conditioning throughout the year.

The main house consists of a sitting-room, bedroom, dormer, bathroom, kitchen, pantry, dining-room, porch, hall, a very sunny patio and a balcony. The kitchen is ample, and the dining room, dormer and sitting-room form a large open-plan area on two levels.

The separate studio is entered through another trellised patio.
The visitors’ anex consists of a double bedroom, sitting room, bathroom and a toilet.
Additionally there is a laundry.

The house is really three separate buildings: the main house, the «granny flat» and a studio. The main house consists of a sitting-room, bedroom, dormer, bathroom, kitchen, pantry, diningroom, porch, hall, a very sunny patio and a balcony. The kitchen is ample, and the dining room, dormer and sitting-room form a large open-plan area on two levels. The separate studio is entered through another trellised patio. The granny flat consists of a double bedroom, sitting room, bathroom and a toilet. Additionally there is a laundry.

The house with its garden of fruit trees and grapevines is classified as urban and so reforms and certain extensions are possible. The winery is on an adjacent plot, also urban, with other old constructions including an ancient bread oven in good working condition, two water cisterns … This plot is an excellent opportunity for an enterprising someone to renovate.

The house of 270 m2, with its fruit trees and grapevines, is on a 1,000 m2 plot classified as urban and so reforms and certain extensions are possible.

The remainder of this freehold property consists of another urban plot (500 m2) with a small winery, and a very much larger area of vegetable gardens and vineyard classified as rural. This part has been earmarked for the future expansion of the village and so one day it will become prime real estate.

The very much larger area of vegetable gardens and vineyard towards the north on the other side of the house is classified as rural. It has been earmarked for the future expansion of the village and so one day it will become prime real estate. 

Our Surroundings
Part of the village of El Pinar as seen from our vineyard.

The property is on the outskirts of the village of El Pinar in the sunny southeast of the island on the edge of the pine forest and surrounded by almond and fig trees and vineyards. At 800 metres above sea level, the air is clean, and the night sky is full of stars.

Pleasure boats at La Restinga

The village is about 27 Km from the airport and port, and 20 Km from the capital Valverde. La Restinga, a small seaside resort known internationally for its diving, is 13 Km away on the southernmost point of the island.
El Pinar has most basic services, shops and restaurants and our 24/7 health centre is just 300 metres from the house. The public bus service is modern and punctual.

The island of El Hierro

Most people know something about the Canary Islands but they often don’t know much about El Hierro.

Without taking your breath away, the landscapes are often stunning and varied: capricious badlands of petrified lava, evergreen woods and pine forests, hundreds of extinct volcanic cones, green valleys, huge amphitheatres a thousand metres high, sandy slopes, and blue skies …

Geographically next door to Africa, it could be as hot as the Sahara but the Atlantic ocean guarantees the island has one of the world’s most perfect climates for people to live in.
