The Spanish government has extended the national lockdown until 24 May. In addition, there applies the worldwide travel warning by the German Foreign Ministry until 14 June inclusive. This means that holidaying at El Cabrito is not possible for the time being. But we are optimistic: The first phases for easing the lockdown and the re-opening of the Canary Isles has started successfully. On La Gomera there are zero cases of the illness and the easing of rules started a week ago and on Tenerife as from today. Please keep your fingers crossed for a further good development! We wish you a beautiful springtime and good health!

Our two agricultural workers Raúl and Juan start their morning’s work in the goat shed. More than 20 goats have to be milked and the stables cleaned. This means a lot of work by hand since both have only one small milking machine for help. Our little goats – in Spanish “cabritos” – are from a few days to two weeks old. They enjoy life in their herd family and use the large compound for playing and romping about.

Lockdown Extended Again
Dear guests, our hotel continues to be closed since the Spanish parliament has approved the extension of the national lock-down until 9 May. As soon as we learn any more news we will inform you here and via Facebook. Until then we wish you all to stay healthy and in good spirits during these exceptional times.

Shade for our little Guests
We make use of these weeks that we are sadly without guests to work on various pending projects. One of these is the arched sunshade for the sandy play area – constructed with reeds. Beneath this shadowy roof our little guests can play in the sand to their hearts’ delight in full view of the grown-ups who are enjoying coffee and cake on the bordering terrace.

Spain’s Lockdown Extended
As you may have learnt from the media, Spain’s lockdown has been extended to Sunday, 26 April – until further notice. The restrictions are still valid also for the Canary Islands. This means you cannot travel here until that date.
We will keep you dated and hope for all of us to be able to pull through these unhappy times.

Dear guests and
friends of El Cabrito!
We will close from Thursday, March 26th until Sunday, April 11th, 2020.
The situation is clear: Spain is in lock-down in order to diminish the spread of the Corona virus. This includes the closure of all hotels within seven days. Therefore, we have to communicate to you the intermediate closure of the Hotel Finca El Cabrito as from Thursday, March 26 until Saturday, April 11.
After that date we will communicate new orders of the authorities as they occur and keep you informed via Facebook or per email.
During the past 30 years we have mastered many challenges. We overcame them all and are confident that we will resist this particular crisis too.
Health is most important now. We hold the fort and thank you very much for your many good wishes and support.
We wish all our guests, friends and staff good health.

Fragrant Orange Blossoms
Our little orange trees are growing magnificently. Despite having been planted only two years ago they are blooming particularly beautifully. All who walk through the Finca these weeks are enchanted by their entrancing scent. These flowers will produce juicy oranges full of vitamins which our guests can enjoy at our buffet come winter. There will not be many oranges to harvest yet since our little trees are still “teens”. But in the following two and three years the grown-up trees will regale us richly with oranges.
