La Casona de Yaiza was built as a summer house by an estate owner in 1825. The house was bought and done up by the current owners and artists who wished to use the available space to create an art gallery. The entire interior is decorated in Italian renaissance style. Every piece of furniture was bought to match the theme and the upstairs bedroom ceilings are intricately painted. There are only eight bedrooms, so the lodging is quiet, and it is conveniently located near attractions such as Timanfaya National Park or Papagayo beach. There is a restaurant and a swimming pool.
