Once upon a time...
A paradisiacal space at the beginning of a valley called Fimbapaire where some houses were born in the 18th century. This place is an escape from the routine, from the noises of the mundane and its landscape of earth, mountain and sky is infinite purity.
The sensations that describe this house are linked to its owner, Pedro, a man of knowledge, of love for his territory, of extensive culture on the historical heritage, poetry and pleasure for the simple life. A man with a soft look, calm words and closeness.
The Singularity of Space...
Fimbapaire is a name of harmonious phonetics, also poetic, surrounded by legends and historical resonances and is related, according to tradition, to the arrival of military power in Fuerteventura in the 18th century. It is said that the first colonel lived here when he arrived in La Oliva, temporarily, before moving to the mansion that was built at the end of the plains of La Oliva, the Casa de los Coloneles (House of the Colonels).
Today it is a place where silence is evident, an unforgettable place to savour the peace, but above all a place that contains the hard work of collective effort, complicit with its natural environment, generation after generation.
The house had spacious rooms, strong walls, good stonework and gabled and hipped roofs in teak wood, with thirteen rooms with their hen house, two bakeries, corrals for the cattle, etc.
The house was renovated in 2000 and one of its singularities is the south-facing patio with views of the mountains, the gullies, the local vegetation and barbecue... the decoration is simple and traditional.
The surrounding area...
It is a rural house surrounded by generous land where in rainy years the island's traditional agricultural work was carried out. Many photographs and documentaries portray these "Roses" or cultivated fields. La Rosita de Fimbapaire, a first class agricultural unit in Fuerteventura, is still surrounded today by the cultivation of tuneras, from which the cochineal dye and the fruits of the tunos were extracted.
Dry crops were grown here: lentils, peas, wheat, potatoes, garlic, onions, millet, etc., as well as fruit trees typical of these latitudes, such as fig, pomegranate and mulberry trees.
Mountains in ochre tones, the green of the cactus and native plants is a place to retire, to rest. The surrounding area is the classic landscape of Fuerteventura, where its people live.
A curious place as the orientation offers you solitude and at the same time you are in an environment between two villages with services where you can walk to La Oliva or Villaverde. There are famous restaurants and supermarkets of the island less than 500 mtrs from the house.
