Some of you might ask , Who was he? Well let me tell you a little about this man.
Gregor Kaiser was a young German entrepreneur who arrived in Lanzarote in 1970 at the age of 36yrs. He had a vision of what he wanted the village to be and over the years it has developed into the popular naturist resort that we know and love today. Charco del Palo was the first official naturist resort established in the Canaries.
Originally is was named Castillo de Papagayo but this caused some confusion with Playa de Papagayo in Playa Blanca so the name changed to Charco del Palo.
After building his own house he them worked with Oböna building the first apartment block in Charco del Palo in 1980. These apartments are still very much a part of Charco del Palo today, sitting opposite La Tunera Restaurant, in fact one of them was our home for the first two years we lived here.
Like I said at the beginning of this news, not all of you will have known him but he has played a big part in your naturist holidays over the years.
Our condolences go to his family at this time of great sadness.
Gregor’s funeral is this coming Friday in Germany.
