I came into contact with Fernando in a somewhat unfortunate way. That morning, I went for a brisk walk in the mountains, slipped on a rock and hit my knee. I decided to go to a pharmacy in Las Palmas to get some healing supplies for my wound. You could say it was a stroke of luck, because it was there that I first came into contact with the wonderful Finca La Mareta.
The owner of the pharmacy was called Fernando and I told him about my fanatical walk that morning and that I had been a bit too ambitious. He laughed. "Do you like to be in nature?" and meanwhile he fetched an ointment. "I prefer not to hear anything at all except the birds," and as I said this, he picked up a leaflet from under the counter. "Maybe you will like this?" In front of me was a beautiful finca, his finca la Mareta, and immediately I forgot the pain in my knee. I saw atmospheric white casas, surrounded by tropical plants and brimming with nature. Inside, they were just as tastefully decorated in Canary style with quite a lot of space!
"If you really want to wake up in nature, I have a casa free for tonight. Of course, I immediately said 'yes' to the man who not only helped my body, but also delighted my spirit.
And now I am enjoying the silence, nature and the view of the Agaete valley here at the pool. My knee is resting peacefully, as am I. The birds are singing and I am thinking about Fernando's words and about the best medicine called Finca la Mareta. Indeed, there is no better plaster for a wound, and I could not wish for a better pill of happiness than this one.
