It was during Christmas 2014 that we walked stumbled upon onto the the house we now call Drago. We were on our way back from a late evening surf session in Rocky Point, and when we laid eyes on the house she was locked into behind iron bars, behind with a dry garden, looking as if in black and white… and yet, you we knew it was a place we wanted to stay, and so we did.
That’s how Dragohomes was born: ; we planted a Drago plant and got to work, led by our hope desire to make this house a home and to bring out its unique character. Drago is one of those special places that gives you a sense that, before you’ve even left, you will long to return. It’s the feeling of your feet into in the sea, salty breeze in your hair, watched over by Lobos Island— –or is it by Saint Exupéry’s elephant eaten by the boaconstrictor in the Little Prince?
It’s best qualities we already there. So we started renovations to offer the best ingredients in a way that highlights their true beauty, without garish embellishments or excessive flair. Then came more homes sharing with the same spirit, and thus we created this website for so that more people like you and us and might discover this experience, as easy to enjoy, as it is difficult to describe: Fuerteventura.
