So it was 30 years ago today that Anita travelled to Lanzarote on her own. She told me this morning that it was very scary not knowing where the Taxi was taking her and travelling alone down what was then a dirt track to Charco del Palo, you can imagine how nervous and scared she must have felt. Anyhow she made it safely to La Tunera where she was welcomed by Helmet and this is where she stayed for one week while she had a good look around Charco del Palo for some land to build what is now Casa Austria.
After the week was up Anita flew back to Germany to speak with her partner and tell him that she had found the perfect parcel of land. So in 1985 it was all action stations, with architect drawings and planning permissions and by 1987 they were ready to start building and in August 1989 Casa Austria was finished.
One other anniversary coming up for Anita is on the 6th April and this time she celebrates living in Charco del Palo for 25 yrs.
What a nice story, Well done Anita, I for one think that Casa Austria is still one of the nicer properties to rent if you are planning a holiday in Charco del Palo.
