Our Yoga Home will give you an intimate hug. Our intention was to design and build a home for Yoga, a place where you experience peace and harmony. Casa Yogafriends is an ideal place for an intimate retreat.
It has a contemporary and warm flair, uncluttered and rich in details. The rooms, the common areas and the Yoga studio are all embracing the patio and the pool area, the heart of the house.
Natural materials fuse the construction with the powerful surroundings. We chose lava stones for the walls and red wood for the floors and roofs in order to pair our close neighbor, the Volcano of Lajares. In the garden we planted Canarian flora, mainly palms and banana trees, direct suppliers for the morning smoothie.
The warmhearted Yoga room is bathed in light, and scented by wood. It is an inspiring place for your practice. Adjacent to it, there is an exterior wooden Yoga deck. You are welcome to use the studio any time of the day.
Interior and exterior common spaces are generous. The pool patio, the core, is a place for meeting up with others or finding your own private corner. Most meals are served on the terrace. In the main building, you find a large dining table, confortable sofas and a small library.
All rooms have a calm interior and feel cozy. They enjoy plenty of natural light and a direct access to the pool area. Every room has its own and unique bathroom.
We use solar power to heat the water and we will reuse that water for irrigating the garden. A lot of the furniture is made of recycled teak wood. There is a filter where you can fill your drinking water bottle. We recycle most materials. We grow fruits and herbs.
LAJARES, OUR VILLAGE
Our base is in the north of Fuerteventura. Lajares is young and dynamic small town. It has a very unique personality where rural Canarian culture fuses with an international surfing vibe.
There are several restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries. On Saturdays there is an artesian market. The house is walking distance to the center of the town.
In our neighborhood we have one of the most majestic landscapes of the island, the Lajares Volcano. Our villa is an ideal starting point for hikes, trail running or biking.
The nearest beach is 5 km away and it can be reached in 25 minutes by bike. The white sandy beaches of Cotillo and Corralejo are within a 10-15 minutes drive.
Cotillo is a nice fishing village. For a healthy dose of history and culture, the old town of Betancuria is the place. The north of the island has many corners for you to explore. You can easily find unspoiled nature and your private spot on the beach.
We recommend you to hire a car, but it is not a necessity. We provide bikes for you to use, and the Yogafriends 4x4 mobile will take you to some of the activities.
We hope you will love Fuerteventura just as much as we do.
And there is plenty of reasons to do so:
Fuerteventura enjoys 330 days of sunshine per year and is blessed with a moderate ever spring climate.
The average temperature between December and April is around 18 degrees Celsius, perfect weather to escape the cold northern hemisphere winter.
Surrounded by the cristaline waters of the Atlantic ocean, it is the perfect place to relax, find peace and recharge batteries.
Fuerteventura is the secondlargest of the Canary Islands, plenty of space to discover and enjoy outdoor activities.
