Right next to the church square, in the small green mountain village of Fátaga is where you find Finca Tassomio (or sometimes “TASSO/MIO”). Far away from the bustle of the south coast (but not too far, if that’s what you want), Fátaga lies right beside two fabulous hiking trails that lead to Maspalomas, San Bartolomeo or Santa Lucia.
Named after Mio (the owner) and Tasso (his dog), Finca Tassomio is a typical Canarian village house that has become a unique holiday Bed & Breakfast. In authentic village style, is blessed with many fruit trees where guests are welcome to help themselves to grapes, pears, oranges, mango or lemons, according to the season. The garden also has a big plunge pool and several terraces for chilling out in the sunshine. Up on the roof terrace there are sunbeds for relaxing and taking in the mountain views, and a small fitness corner for those who don’t want to be too lazy.
The large living room is the place to enjoy a daily breakfast, or to sit in the lounge area and contemplate the day just gone or the day to come.
Each of the five guest rooms is as unique as the guests who visit. Individually furnished, there is well-balanced mix of modern designer furniture and antiques. The bigger rooms have a king-size bed and they all have reversible air-conditioning, a safe, a choice of pillows, a television and wi-fi. Choose the Garden room for the best view, the Classic Suite for the most space, or the Small Double for the greatest economy.
Fátaga is a small village enveloped by mountains in the “Valley of 1000 Palm Trees”. The small houses, windy streets and slow pace of life are a pleasing antidote to the commercialism of the southern coastline. The valley shelters it’s sub-tropical flora and there are a variety of restaurants for eating out. It’s the perfect base for a walking holiday in the Gran Canaria mountains.
