In the past, Finca Mimosa, completely surrounded by its white wall in the middle of the black landscape of Lanzarote, was still completely alone. In the meantime the world has changed, the nearby colonial town of Teguise has grown and now extends all the way to the finca.
But what hasn't changed is the feeling when you arrive at the finca: the barren landscape with streets and houses in front of the wall, pure oasis inside! Lush palm trees, cacti and other exotic plants populate the spacious patio with the glowing blue swimming pool in the middle and the various small buildings around it.
No view penetrates from the outside, but from the upper windows and terraces the view sweeps far into the distance to the mountains of fire and the sky over Lanzarote, on which often exciting cloud games can be observed. Come in and come down, so to speak.
Lamps by Alvaro Catalán de Ocón hang in the green salon. The upcycling lighting project "Pet-Lamps" is a social project that preserves old craftsmanship and secures people's income.
The atmosphere of the finca is very special, from time to time a trip to the sea or to one of the island's sights, which as a whole has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 1993.
Otherwise, the Finca Mimosa is the ideal place to finally enjoy yourself and your friends or family in complete peace and quiet.

ArchitectureNatural stone, terracotta, wood and white paint. The Finca Mimosa is surrounded by a 2000 sqm garden full of exotic flora under the mostly blue sky of Lanzarote. The buildings, which are over 200 years old, were built in the traditional Lanzarote country house style. Ecological colors were used to renovate the interiors. In addition, the color rules that the artist César Manrique (1919-1992) enforced together with the President of the Island of Pepin Ramirez were observed: walls outside white, windows and doors in agricultural areas green. Also typical of the island are the partially bricked and tiled bathrooms, kitchens and even furniture such as sofa beds and beds. The large table in the green salon was built by the 80-year-old carpenter Manolo. Manrique's work made a decisive contribution to the face of the island today. It is thanks to him that most of the buildings here were not built higher than three floors and are kept almost entirely white. With the island-typical painting of wooden windows and doors and fences in rural areas in green and in the fishing villages in blue.
FoodIn the nearby town of Teguise there are two organic shops for shopping during the week. On Sunday, the entire center of the village is flooded by the weekly market, where all sorts of local products are available for purchase.
EnvironmentThe Finca Mimosa is built in a simple island-typical way so that it adapts well to the climate and requires little heating or cooling. Warm water is generated by solar energy and the garden is operated with rainwater from an old cistern. Guests will be informed about the local waste separation procedure upon arrival and asked to do so. The house is furnished with environmentally friendly materials and painted with ecological colors.
Book without surcharge!
Finca Mimosa is only about half an hour from the airport in Arrecife. A rental car is recommended for exploring the island.
