Tenicosquey, located in the eastern part of Fuerteventura, it’s a natural and desert spot where nature is the only protagonist. In the fifteenth century settlers began to populate Tenicosquey, and the mahos used this natural space of passage. They preferred to settle in more protected and elevated areas.
Best place for accommodation: Tenicosquey’s houses
The houses of Tenicosquey is one of the points of interest of this village and it’s located between Los Cuchillos de Viagán and the Protected Natural Area of Malpaís Grande. The vegetation is scarce, but its geographical location, valleys and knives, make Tenicosquey one of the most special places of Fuerteventura.
The few houses that remain today are used for tourist accommodation. They stand out for their location and for their typical Majorera architecture: Casa Pilar, Casa Aurora and Casa Tarabilla. They are located in the center of the Biosphere Reserve. A unique situation where you will be able to connect with nature and the wildest and most unique landscape of the island.
Activities in Fuerteventura
Casa Pilar, Casa Aurora and Casa Tarabilla are located in the center of the ecological farm Verdeaurora Bio Farm. The range of activities is very wide, in the same space you can enjoy a relaxing holiday and live a few days full of adventure.
Verdeaurora is located in the heart of the Fuerteventura Biosphere Reserve. This makes it a place away from the hustle and bustle of the most touristy areas of the island. In the evenings you’ll only hear the sound of the animals that live in the vicinity or visit us every day. There you can also enjoy the Starlight Reserve. An experience that you will only live once the sun has set. A moment when millions of bright stars, the long and marked Milky Way, planets surrounded by strange satellites, shooting stars that cross the firmament and mythological constellations are seen every night.
In the meantime, during the day, you can discover all the details hidden in the farm and get to know the Bio Farm philosophy. For example, you can walk through the olive trees, from which we extract our extra virgin bio olive oil, and visit the organically grown Aloe vera plantations. Later on, you’ll learn everything about how to care for this plant at home.
All this is accompanied by a tasting of the majorera gastronomy. Rich dishes based on goat cheese, olive oil or mojo picón as the main protagonists.
