We spent three lovely weeks at Haciendo Cristoforo in which we felt as though we were going "home" at the end of each day. It is a beautifully designed space that feels like you have become part of a community rather than a visitor. We came to Tenerife to attend a retreat that was held outside of Haciendo Cristoforo and... More

Denis Devaris is an architect who dreamt of creating a community where the people, activities and even the buildings and land contributed to wholeness and healing: Hacienda Cristoforo. Now, over forty years later, Denis’ dream is a reality that continues to grow and evolve under his gentle, loving hand. Entering the grounds is like entering an embrace. The gardens, the... More

Each guesthouse, each meal, each garden space, each vista offers something new to see, to feel, to enjoy, to be with. The staff quietly supports these discoveries. This is a simple place that celebrates the extraordinary variety of human possibility. It is quiet, non-commercial, and full of well being--a deep contrast to the hundreds of uniform concrete hotels and condos,... More

I would like to congratulate Hacienda Cristóforo and his owner, Dennis, for the incredible experience that we, a group of young architects, had in this place. First of all we thought of staying in Tenerife in a sustainable space for practicing Yoga and reconnecting with nature. This was completely fulfilled with the facilities, designed by Denis with a lot of... More

Hacienda Cristoforo is definitely not your typical hotel. Its elegance derives from its simplicity, its dialogue with the nature around it and the calming aura that it conveys in all of its rooms and spaces. I would definitely visit again!

Hacienda Cristoforo is a true gem for those who would love to tune out of the modern world and to connect with healing, natural beauty. The village was constructed over decades as an holistic center by its Greek architect owner Denis Devaris in accordance with ideas within modernism as esthetical strategies to promote spiritual wellbeing. This oasis of peace hosts... More

I am not normally one for reviews but this place was quite simply paradise. A tranquill retreat with beautifully designed houses, wooden carved tables and chairs, a refreshing swimming pool and even a little farm! The minute I walked in I felt completely relaxed and removed from the stresses of fast paced life.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience staying at Hacienda Cristoforo. Set against a backdrop of mountains, no more than a few miles from the Atlantic ocean and designed with genuine care and originality it is a place to rejuvenate and explore the rest of the island. Made up of multiple traditional stone built houses with an individual style,... More

Hacienda Cristoforo is a beautiful retreat from life's usual fast pace. Everything is done simply here. Picking vegetables from the garden, feeding the animals or watering the plants with recycled water from the lodgings- Cristoforo offers peace, space and light. Thank you Denis!

When you step into Cristoforo, it's like stepping into a different world; a world of peace, calm and tranquility. The buildings are beautiful and the whole space has been designed and built using wood and stone by the owner, Dennis, who is always on hand to welcome you and make your stay extra special, as are the staff.
