The images speak for themselves...

No effort was spared with the restoration of the Abaco. This is contrary to another typical, historic Spanish farmstead nearby, which became a big eye sore with possible repercussions.

Indeed, miracles were performed to turn the estate's entrance  into a warm welcoming room. Even a Persian carpet is on its floor.

Timber beams which are there and everywhere in the mansion create coziness and luxury all around.

Grant yourself at least one outing to this mansion which is almost like a private club...  Tenerife photos Abaco Mansion by the holiday home insider may not even emphasize the estate's qualities enough.

An unusual harvest bounty greets you when you come in. It's a big vase with fresh Strelitzia flowers, subtropical fruit, enormous pumpkins and gourds.

A similar display is by the stairs on the first floor of the mansion.

Note that the Abaco has beautiful entrances from many sides.

You may walk everywhere to explore and to enjoy.

The almost 30 meter long drawing room  has many comfortable nooks.

They are ideal to relax in privacy or with family or friends. 

Singles, couples and groups may even find space at the extended bar.

Even a door from the Atrium leads to it.
