Los Gigantes: The quaint village of Los Gigantes snuggles in a secluded valley overlooking a spectacular bay. Friendly people enjoy a gentle pace of life in a glorious setting. Visitors return time after time as this is one of the most tranquil and exclusive areas of the island of Tenerife. The village has been built around the traditional style plaza with the beautiful church at its heart (very friendly congregation). The church has a fabulous collection of bronze sculptures with a dramatic painting over the altar. This plaza is the hub of the village, colourful ‘fiestas’ are held here many times a year – great fun. Take time out and enjoy a glass of local wine or a coffee and just watch the world go by. If you're lucky the local 'parakeetas' will put on an aerial display for you in one of the large leafy trees. Beautiful vistas from the ‘Oasis’ and ‘El Aguilla’ and lots of other places to just while away lazy days relaxing in your swimsuit enjoying the sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
Tenerife: Siam Water Park has been a favourite with guests, as has Loro Park, diving in the clear waters off Los Gigantes, magnificent and dramatic Mount Teide and volcanic rock fields in the Canadas. Sightseeing trips around the island or over to the extraordinary island of La Gomera, are all easily accessible. Local buses cheap and reliable.
Slightly further afield there are the amazing pyramids at Guima, hiking in the hills or down the twisting cliff path to Masca Bay, trips to ancient vineyards and the historic Drago tree, (learn about the history of the guanchos the native Tenerifians) a choice of beaches and boat trips from Los Gigantes harbour to visit the whales and dolphins playing out at sea. Lovely people in reception will be happy to help you arrange any of these outings. Do ask about the Almond Blossom Trail.
With many years experience behind us we are happy to do everything we can to enable you to enjoy stress free booking and a happy, relaxed stress free holiday.
Stunning Views: There are stunning views across the wide blue bay to the island of La Gomera, which rises majestically from the ocean. Big blue skies, day after day. Take time out at sunset to just stand and stare at the spectacular free show as the sun plops into the sea coating the island and ocean in liquid gold. We celebrate the sunset each evening from the balcony of the apartment – raising a glass of local vino to the magical pink and blue. We scoff olives and almonds and drink in the spectacle – our little holiday ritual. The magnificent Los Gigantes cliffs soar above the Northern side of the village helping create a sheltered warm year-round micro-climate

About Terry and Felicity Margolis
Terry and Fliss were married in 1976 and moved to their current home in the Mid Wales hills in 1982. They restored an old barn and stone farmhouse set in 22 acres of land with a 20 acre bluebell wood and for the last 30 years have run a holiday business there - Barlings Barn. www.barlbarn.zetnet.co.uk
We fell in love with this gorgeous apartment in 2002. We had travelled to Los Gigantes when Fliss was very ill with Asthma. The asthma disappeared within 2 hours of arriving! We thought we ought to visit more often but wanted others to be able to share this lovely place. El Marques Palace is in a very sunny elevated position with lovely views and Fiss is particularly fond of sunset views over the sea. It is a tradition for Terry and Fliss to sit on the balcony and toast the sunset whilst munching olives and local almonds. Ah bliss!
Terry and Felicity Margolis purchased this apartment in 2002
Why Terry and Felicity Margolis chose Los Gigantes
We loved the pretty 'wedding cake' design of El Marques Palace and the lovely sunny location which is peaceful without being isolated. We love being able to stroll everywhere locally, the beautiful ocean views and the majesty of the Gigantes cliffs soaring from the sea way below.
What makes this apartment unique
For us the micro-climate is unique benefit. Not only can Fliss testify to the health giving qualities in regards to her asthma they also now know that people travel to this area as it helps their arthritis too. There is also a lovely community feel to the area which means you feel so at home right from the start.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Returned from holiday this afternoon - everything fantastic: flights spot on (10 mins early back!), airport transfer excellent, apartment superb perfect for the two of us - so much space and, weather unbelievable (40 degrees, not a cloud in the sky!) - all in all a great holiday - just what we wanted. Thanks for the apartment, it really is a gem. Thanks again, already thinking about next year and I think I've said this before, I don't usually like going to a place that I've been to before, but when you've found somewhere near perfect it's difficult not to return!
