finca Breña Alta


This 160,000 square meter house is situated in one of the most sought after areas of the island of La Palma only 15 minutes drive from the capital Santa Cruz de la Palma (as the crow flies it is less than 3 km). The property offers a wonderful view over the sea, and on clear days appears Tenerife at the horizon, with its mighty Mount Teide.

This beautiful peaceful location amid the lush vegetation associated with the proximity to all the conveniences of the city and the economic size of the acreage of this farm makes it a unique opportunity for anyone looking for a challenge in this beautiful sense.

This estate, originating from 1820, consists of a main house and several outbuildings, which were managed until the sixties of the last century in full. Up to 8 families lived and worked here, particularly in the production of tobacco. After a period of hibernation, the property was then renovated by 1993 to 2002, to return to fulfill its traditional function and also enable rural tourism. This includes not only the traditional cigar tobacco, but also over 12,000 protea plants, 60 avocado trees and the cultivation of citrus fruits. The soil is also ideal for growing herbs and plants with edible flowers.

Today the buildings house next to the necessary facilities for agriculture - such as workshop, storage facilities and refrigeration chamber - a restaurant and bar, and three guest rooms including one suite. In addition, a license is to develop one of the buildings in a Rural hotel with 10 rooms and 2 suites. Hot water and electricity be self-sufficient through solarcollectors, and the building is heated with heat pumps. The connection for the public water supply of the building is complemented by a 60 m³ large cistern, while for the planting there is a reservoir of 2200 m³ in the valley, and as required within 3 hours 300 m³ of water run uphill into a store on the mountain. From here, using the natural gradient the automatic irrigation system on the estate is provided, without any need of pumps.

Breña Alta in the West borders on the crests of the Cumbre Nueva, where a road leads to Refugio El Pilar. This popular picnic area is the starting point for many hikes, such as the Ruta de los Volcanes, which runs along de Cumbre Vieja down to the lighthouse at Punta de Fuencaliente at the southern tip of the island of La Palma.

In the 16th century, the community pastures were used for grazing of animals, until later Castillian rich families settled, who built large and magnificent buildings and conducted agriculture. Some of the estates were used because of the good climate as a summer residence. Today the agriculture of Breña Alta mainly contains tobacco, fruit and vegetable plantations. There are many small settlements with beautiful gardens that give this quaint area a special atmosphere.

Main attractions are the twin dragon trees Los Gemelos and the church Iglesia de San Pedro Apostol, which was built in the 16th Century. The gallery La Chatita shows works of Palmero and German artists.
