Rooms are spread over 2 floors and either overlook or lead onto a stone-flagged courtyard or the cacti-studded gardens.
There are no facilities for hot or cold drinks in the rooms which we would have expected at a hotel of this quality.
Beds, canopies, wardrobes, lights and paintings, together with the works of art decorating the ceilings of the upper floor rooms, and all of the furniture which graces the hotel makes up a harmonious collection that is in contrast with both traditional Canary architecture and the volcanic wilderness all around.
The hotel has 8 beautiful rooms including 3 suites, large and comfortable, and each named after one of the little places around the Fenauso valley that can be seen from the windows of the hotel.
La Casona de Yaiza was built around 1825 as the summer home of a wealthy landowner.
More recently it became the focus of a small group of artists and hotel professionals who have turned it into a hotel, restaurant and art-gallery.
The interior of the hotel recreates the art of the Italian Renaissance and the Spanish artists' belonging to the roman School.
