We as owners are the contact persons for all your needs. We are a Canarian / Austrian family and we speak your language too. Canarian tradition is maintained in our family. So family festivals also take place with Canarian folk and traditional music. If you are interested

Luisa Hernandez purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Luisa Hernandez chose Arico

The Spanish family Hernandez / Galvan is a great farming family rich in tradition, which since many generations, resides in Tenerife and has large landholdings. We are continuing the tradition of planting our villas with organic wine and tropical fruits. Our forests are replanted, and from the

private, 4-kilometre deep water galleries (mine shafts) we get a lot of mineralised, pure spring water, which rises with a temperature of more than 34 degrees Celsius out of the rock.

What makes this apartment unique

Out of the old Canarian houses in our possession, we have chosen the most traditional one, stylishly renovated and furnished it completely. In these houses not only a beautiful holiday is possible, but also

the contact to Spanish lifestyle is provided.

Beautiful rural and off beaten track

  • 5 of 5

We had good communication with luisa's son and check in was smooth. The property was clean and as described usual mod cons bonus having a dishwasher washing machine and tumble dryer! Beds were very comfortable. We wanted to stay away from the usual tourist hot spots. This definitely is off the beaten track but really spectacular. We stayed in February and it was cool in the evenings as you are 500m up in the hills. The views are wonderful from the apartments. One evening Luisa produced a superb paella which again was wonderful.

The pool is unheated and was the only thing we couldn't use but we went down to the beaches which were wonderful and quiet. We did a lot of exploring up the coast which is very easy to do. You would need a car to stay here.

There was a fabulous wood burning stove for the cooler evenings. But in the summer this place I'm sure would be wonderful to get away from the burning heat of the day.

sehr schöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung Aquario bietet alles, was man für einen schönen Urlaub benötigt und ist sehr praktisch eingerichtet.

In 5 Minuten Fußweg erreicht man einen kleinen Supermarkt, Bäcker und Apotheke. Der Garten ist schön angelegt und die Kinder hatten sehr viel Spaß mit Trampolin, Hühnern (incl. Eier holen), Katzen und Hund. Da der Pool nicht beheizt ist, war es uns im März ein bisschen zu kühl um ihn zu nutzen, aber er sah sehr gepflegt aus. Am abend vor unserer Heimreise hat Luisa eine sehr leckere Paella für alle Mieter ihrer Wohnungen gekocht.

Vielen Dank noch einmal für alles.

Immer wieder!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum zweiten Mal in der Finca Tropical und hatten die Wohnung Aquario gemietet. Wegen der Beschreibung der Räume und der Einrichtung verweisen ich auf vorangegangene Bewertungen. Sowohl die Lage abseits der touristischen Hochburgen, dennoch nah zur Küste, die Ruhe, der Blick vom Balkon übers Land zum Meer, die Wandermöglichkeiten von der Finca ausgehend haben uns wieder viel Erholung gebracht. Die Gastfreundschaft der Vermieterin Luisa und ihres Sohnes Rayco ist grandios. Wir kommen wieder.

Wunderbare Finca mit tollem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Nachdem unsere Anreise ein wenig turbulent war, konnten wir mit unserer Vermieterin Luisa alles sehr unkompliziert und einfach lösen. Luisa ist die Seele der Finca und sorgt dafür, dass man sich einfach wohlfühlt. Unsere beiden Kinder und wir haben Luisa sofort in unser Herz geschlossen. Luisa kümmert sich um alles, wenn man ein Problem hat. Toll fanden wir auch, dass Sie für uns und Ihre anderen Gäste eine Paella gemacht und sogar eine Musikgruppe organisiert hat - ein wundervoller Abend.

Die Finca ist idyllisch gelegen, abseits von dem üblichen Massentourismus. Eine richtig kleine Oase mit tollem Ausblick.

Die Wohnung hat alles was man braucht und ist sauber. Das Gelände ist toll, die Kinder (2 und 5) hatten Platz zum Toben und das Füttern der Hühner war ein tägliches Highlight. Der Pool ist wunderbar groß und wird auch regelmäßig gereinigt. Im Ort gibt es alles was man für den täglichen Alltag braucht. Auch Supermärkte sind in 10 - 15 Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar. Zu einer schönen Badebucht in El Poris / Abona gelangt man in 10 - 15 Minuten. Wir haben allerdings oft die Autofahrt auf uns genommen und sind nach San Andres zum Playa de las Teresitas gefahren - ein Traumstrand nicht nur für Kinder.

Uns hat der Aufenthalt bei Luisa sehr gut gefallen und wir werden bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort gewesen sein.

Traumurlaub verbracht

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in den Sommerferien 2016 mit unseren Söhnen (8 und 13 Jahre) für 10 Tage in Luisas Ferienwohnung Leo. Die Wohnung liegt direkt am wunderschönen Pool und hat alles was man braucht. Auch deutsches TV war vorhanden - was unsere Jungs besonders gut fanden, da gerade Fußball-EM war:) Luisa empfing uns mit leckeren Keksen und selbstangebautem Bio-Wein, hat Paella gekocht und uns mit tollen Tipps versorgt (wo kann man besonders gut Essen gehen, was sollte man unbedingt gesehen haben).

Auf dem herrlichen Gelände gibt es überall gemütliche Sitzecken. Zudem verfügt die Finca über zwei große Obst- und Gemüsegärten (mit Zwiebeln, Spinat, Zitronen, Pflaumen, verschiedenen Kräutern etc.) und einen Hühnerstall, aus denen wir uns nach Herzenslust bedienen durften. Vor Ort gab es für die Kids alles was das Herz begehrt: einTrampolin, einem Billiardtisch, einen Ecke zum Boule spielen und natürlich einen riesigen Pool - aber auch Brettspiele und Spielzeug für Kleinkinder war vor Ort vorhanden. Im Ortskern, den man zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten erreicht, gibt es neben einer Bank, einer Tankstelle, 3 kleinen Supermärkten auch einem Bäcker wo man leckere Brötchen oder Baguettes bekommt. Zum Strand sind es ebenso wie zu den nächsten größeren Einkaufsmöglichkeiten circa 10 bis 15 Autominuten. Wir können die Ferienwohnung Leo nur weiterempfehlen!

Danke Luisa für die wunderschöne Zeit und grüße Blondie und Simba von uns!

Entspannt und familiär

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben wunderschöne 14 Tage hier verbracht. Die Wohnung Leo hat alles, was man braucht. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, und für den Start ist mit Kaffee, Gewürzen, Spültabs usw. gesorgt. Ein Sofa und ein Bollerofen machen Abende gemütlich, auch wenn es mal kühl ist. Pool, Garten, Grillplatz, Hühner und Katzen hat es - Urlaub auf dem Lande. Abseits vom Halligalli-Tourismus kümmert sich die herzliche Vermieterin Luisa um das Wohl ihrer großen und kleinen Gäste. Auch um das leibliche Wohl, mit Paella, Ökowein, Kuchen und Musik. Strände gibt es wenige Autominuten entfernt. In den Dörfern rundrum findet man gute Restaurants mit tollem Fisch und anderen kanarischen Gerichten. Die attraktive Hauptstadt Santa Cruz ist in einer halben Stunde erreichbar. Wir kommen gerne wieder zu Luisa. Uli M. und Dina B.
