Floatel are Tim Wittenbecher, Marc Nagel and a team of lighthouse enthusiasts who have inspired 6 investors with their idea and have set themselves the goal of opening numerous fantastic hideaways throughout Europe over the next 10 years.
With the Hamburg harbour crane "GREIF" the company goes one step further. The Mini Hotel, which opened in 2018, was not built directly on the water, but on the water.
Faro Cumplida on the Canary Island of La Palma is the first Floatel Hideaway in Spain.
More wonderful lighthouse Hideaways will follow. In the meantime, long-term concessions for lighthouses in Andalusia - Faro Trafalgar, Asturias - Faro Cudillero and 3 Italian lighthouses on Ischia - Faro Imperatore, in Puglia - Faro San Domino and as an absolute highlight - Faro Spignon in the lagoon of Venice have been acquired.
It is one of the most beautiful and famous lighthouses in Italy on one of the most beautiful islands in the country. Only 1.5 hours by ferry from Naples, Ischia offers beaches, thermal springs, walks and great food. The lighthouse sits above the famous Poseidon Thermal Springs and offers 4 couples the opportunity to experience an indescribable view in a magical place.
Rightfully so, Cudillero was voted the most beautiful village in Spain, and naturally at the end of the upstream cliff stands the lighthouse as the prettiest place in Cudillero. So logically this is the most beautiful location in Spain. The result is a hideaway for 2 couples, which offers a special experience, no matter how the weather is.
One of the most famous, if not the most famous lighthouse in the world. Surrounded by dream beaches, the Battle of Trafalgar took place here over 200 years ago, from which Lord Nelson emerged victorious. Without Trafalgar there would be no British Empire. From 2020 it will go into operation as Floatel Hideaway.
Faro Spignon once illuminated the ships entering the lagoon of Venice. For a long time the approx. 200 sqm large island with the disused lighthouse threatened to sink until Floatel presented the government with a concept to revive the magical place. From 2022 a refuge for 2 people will be built here.
The three tiny islands in the Adriatic have a long and eventful history. Their beauty is unsurpassed and the lighthouse of San Domino will be the most beautiful place for a hideaway imaginable. Hard to describe with words. The lighthouse was the favourite place of Lucio Dalla and already the target of a Libyan attack by lybian terrorists.
We are actively looking for the next Hideaway where we would like to welcome you one day. Floatel is specialised in lighthouses, lighthouses are the most beautiful of all romantic buildings and are always located in spectacular places.
