Water Gardens of Tenerife
Canary Islands

Tenerife is probably one of the last unspoiled European isles. "Fascinating" is the word for this island. It offers lush forests, exotic fauna and flora, deserts, mountains, volcanos, incredibly beautiful coastlines, and spectacular beaches. Think of it as a garden paradise.


Lanzarote
Canary Islands

Lanzarote is the northernmost of the seven main Canary islands. The islands are located 70 miles from the African coast.

Lanzarote is Volcanic in origin. Eruptions in the 18th and 19th Centuries have left Lanzarote appearing as though it is from another world. So lunar does it appear that parts of 'Planet of the Apes' were shot here. Lanzarote has fertile lava-rich soil that is perfect for growing vegetables and wines.

Cesar Manrique's unique native art has made Lanzarote a major art destination. He utilizes the volcanic landscape to create modern designs. His relationship with nature is reflected in the effect he has had on local housing discouraging the high rises that dote other islands. To the right is the House of Cesar Manrique.
