The old garden of the property, surrounded by a wall, stretched from behind the “Casa Principal de Tazacorte” until the current Casa Massieu and in it, in addition to vegetables, planted trees (fig trees, orange trees, lemon trees, quince, mulberries, etc.) and banana plantations, whose existence in this estate consists, and also for the first time in La Palma, in the “Partición Grande” or Vandale of 1613.
The garden of the hotel, located in the former orchard of the hacienda, exhibits exotic plants and botanical rarities as well as Canarian endemic species, distributed in two areas of irregular flowerbeds, pergolas, fountains, ponds and banks, as well as a swimming pool in the likeness of old ponds which, apart from being used for irrigation, had a clear ornamental function. In the style of the ruins that used to adorn the European gardens, we have placed what seems to be an old sugar mill, as Juan Manuel de Silva painted it in the 18th century, however, inside we find the mechanical room of the hotel.
In one of the best climates of the earth, trees, shrubs, flowers and plants of all climates are mixed to form one of those ancient gardens of acclimatization which contributed to the spread of rare plant species from America and Africa during the 18th and 19th centuries and that today makes the delight of visitors who enjoy the warmth of an exceptional climate in a unique environment.
Water of extraordinary quality, from the springs and the galleries of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park, reaches our garden through a modern network of irrigation using ditches and ancient aqueducts in another sign of the daring idiosyncrasy of an island in which man lives in perfect harmony with a highly productive nature.
