We take sustainability very seriously and therefore pay special attention to promoting an environmentally friendly and socially responsible tourism. Early this year (2023) we installed new energy efficient water heaters/-tanks as well as a brandnew photovoltaic system (solar panels) to generate our own renewable energy and being as energy independent as possible. Furthermore, we support Agaete's community by working with as many local business as possible, this includes not only restaurants but also local farms and suppliers as well as a collaboration with the local school/high school.
Team Offsite Retreat Gran Canaria
This special venue for companies is located in the beautiful fishing village of Puerto de las Nieves on Gran Canaria's northwestern coast. From the rooftop terrace you have amazing views over the ocean, the cliffs and the mountains surrounding the valley of Agaete. The house has 31 bedrooms, all with their own private bathroom. The bedrooms can be occupied by up to 2 people. The rooms are very comfortable, all of them have a desk and a chair in case some privacy for work is needed. The shared areas (rooftop with BBQ & Chill out area, living room and dining area) are decorated in a welcoming and comfortable style and should give our guests ample space to relax, work, and spend quality time together.
Your are spoiled for choice when it comes to work areas here: the building's ground floor features the shared living and dining area which can also double as work space; approximately 20 people can work comfortably from various large or small tables & desks. A second popular area to work from is the rooftop: there are several large and small tables in shaded areas so that about 20 people can work from there at the same time, while enjoying the stunning sea views and mountain backdrop. In addition to that, you have access to a coworking space located about 250m (3 min. walk) from El Cabo, right on the seafront. This space fits ~28 people in the open plan coworking, another 12 in the meeting room and aprox 20 on the terrace.
We offer a very unique and authentic "village dine-around" concept: breakfast, lunch and/or dinner can be prepared at a range of local restaurants, bars or a hotel (continental breakfast buffet) - all in walking distance. This concept allows our guests to enjoy a varied and delicious range of meals throughout their stay, experiencing different kinds of cuisines, both local and international. This culinary experience also allows us to cater for all dietary requirements and we are proud to say that the local restaurants we work with take special care to source their produce locally, seasonally and sustainably.
Thanks to it's unique location, our guests can enjoy a wide range of activities right on their doorstep. Swimming in Agaete's natural pools right on the coast or jumping into the ocean from the pier is part of the daily 'routine'. We can further assist with organizing diving and/or snorkeling excursions with the local dive centre. The valley of Agaete and surrounding mountains boast many hiking and walking trails, we can support our guests with organizing visits to local farms or artisan cheese manufacturers. The local sports centre with its indoor swimming pool, its outdoors tennis and paddel courts or various fitness classes is open to everybody. Another popular option is sunrise or sunset yoga on the rooftop.
Gran Canaria's description as a "miniature continent" has never been more on-point than when taking in the scenery from the rooftop: with the ocean and huge cliffs on one side and the valley and surrounding mountains on the other it is easy to understand that this location is unique. Despite being on nature's doorstep, the lively and multicultural capital Las Palmas is only a 30 minute drive away, the picturesque town of Galdar even just 10 minutes - an ample range of restaurants, bars and shops is therefore never far away. And even so, you don't really need a car for anything: supermarkets or bars and restaurants, a pharmacy or sports facilities, local shops or the dive centre... all of them are conveniently located within walking distance. And the local bus stop is just around the corner.
