Description

The Copernicus holiday home is situated in a small sheltered hollow next to the Astrofinca Athos with a view of the sea. In the secluded garden, guests will find avocado trees, fig bushes, pomegranates, almond trees and much more.
With its installations and rentable instruments, the finca offers ideal conditions for observing the night sky, especially for the ambitious amateur astronomer. The special location of the finca, the already magnificent view and the law of light smog, make Las Tricias one of the best places in Europe for astronomical observations.
For information and prices on the telescopes and materials you can book, please send us an enquiry using our contact form.
