ABOUT US

With a lot of vigour, energy, motivation, planning and valuable support from the family, friends and acquaintances, we are in the process of letting my father’s finca blossom in new splendour. Various administrative procedures, visits on site, investigating the existing buildings and obtaining them or decaying them and entering their legalization, but have also given us a lot of work.

Now we can greet our „Finca Duende“ in Andalusia, accompanied by a large truck and loaded with our selected belongings, joyfully nervous on July 3, 2017 as our new home. My father’s finca, once lovingly cherished and cared for with Andalusian horses, still shapes the original charm today. After 15 passionate years at the finca, with unforgettable memories, he returned to Switzerland with a lasting longing 6 years ago. Here he has now developed a new foothold and enjoys the reconstruction of the finca, through Christian and me, his daughter, and stands by us with advice and deeds at all times.

Christian is a trained vegetable gardener and passionate hobby chef. A previous 3-year stay as a consultant in asparagus cultivation in Extremadura shaped his love for the country, people and culture of Spain. He is concerned about the physical well-being and incorporates the variety of delicacies of Spain into his menus. It is a great need for us to create fine dishes with regional and seasonal products. What he does not grow in our garden, we refer directly to our producers, to whom we maintain a close cooperation.

I, Melanie, am a trained marketing professional. My curiosity and openness to other cultures and countries brought me many and long journeys throughout Central America, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. In Uruguay, I worked on a farm with 1,000 acres of land and 16 rustically furnished guest rooms, where I gained valuable experience as a hotel manager. Our goal is to make your holidays with us a carefree, enjoyable experience.

„If you love the simple and appreciate the special, you have the right place with us“
