|The idea for the "Mar y Sol" project
in Tenerife originated in 1975. Mr. Fischer used
to spend his holidays with his wife in Los Cristianos,
at that time a small fishing-village. His wife suffered
from Multiple Sclerosis and Mr. Fischer noted the
marked benefit that the local climate had upon her
condition. and therefore conceived the idea of creating
a holiday resort for people with MS and a host of
other neurological and rheumatic conditions.
|It proved a long and difficult path to bring this
concept to fruition. Mr. Fischer resigned his executive
position at a German energy company, taking a leap
of faith to create a holiday resort for the disabled
and their families. He persevered with this project
even when his wife sadly died.
|The Mar y Sol Hotel was inaugurated in 1990. Since
1995 Mr. Fischer has lived in Tenerife with his
second wife, Mrs. Elli Baum-Fischer, and his two
children Ina and Thomas, and he continues to manage
the hotel resort.
|The Mar y Sol was the first hotel in Europe, if
not in the world, designed to be wheelchair accessible
throughout. "TeraLava", the modern therapy
centre, is part of the resort and managed by Mrs.
Elli Baum-Fischer herself.
|During all these years Mr. Fischer has insisted
that the hotel meets the highest standards that
can be expected of a quality resort hotel for the
disabled and the elderly. Thanks to ongoing development
and improvement we consider that the Mar y Sol offers
the finest conditions in order to ensure relaxing
and lively holidays for the disabled and the able-bodied.
|Mrs. Renate Kraus has been leading the hotel management
team with Mr. Fischer since 2007 and has contributed
fresh ideas to further enrich the atmosphere and
develop the facilities.
|The staff of the Mar y Sol welcome their guests
with understanding and sensitivity, so creating
this special, familiar and friendly atmosphere.
This is surely the reason why so many of our clients
feel so completely at home with us and why so many
choose to return.
