Black lava, a white finca and a blue swimming pool quietly hidden in a place that looks like it was the setting of a remarkable natural phenomenon centuries ago. Surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees all around. These are the enchanting contrasts at Finca Isabel.
I stood by the pool together with owner Clara, and well, how should I put it? 'It looks like a giant meteorite crashed right here in the centre years ago', right where the finca and its gorgeous pool were built.
Close enough’, Clara smiled. ‘It was an eruption thousands of years ago.’ The sun was winking high in the sky as a seemingly lost little cloud passed. Slowly but surely, my mind wandered to years and years ago when this place was a wild and rugged lava landscape. Inhospitable and impenetrable as far as the eye could see.
'Come!' We proceeded further into the crater, surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees. So that’s what an oasis must feel like, I thought to myself. We arrived at a nature-filled cave. 'This is a great place to cool down, should you want to escape the sun'. The 8,000 m2 estate kept surprising me with an astonishing amount of beauty like I had never seen before. Now the time had come to enter the 18th-century mansion and its two apartments. Decorated in the same original style of the island. ‘Your studio is on the other side of the pool’, Clara gave me the key. As I was strolling over to the studio, I stopped for a moment to absorb this wondrous world. A deep sigh escaped my lungs. Serenity was softly blowing around the crater which was still erupting, except with pure joy.
