Quiet and relaxing
We found it quite difficult to find as the Sat Nav said we were there but we just couldn’t find it.. number 16 if anyone else has this problem
Once there it was everything we wanted
A week away from everything
No hustle or bustle
Just peace and quiet
I do agree with the other reviews we would of struggled without a car
Charming, quiet cottage
This apartment in a rural setting was a delight. We enjoy the quiet life and this was perfect for us. Only a short drive from the airport (car hire recommended), it is easily reached. Magnificent views down to the sea and across to Granadilla from the sun terrace. The pool was private and welcoming. In the kitchen there was a welcome addition of a free standing oven which we use a number of times. The owner lives on-site but was completely unobtrusive. We highly recommend a stay here.
bonjour, merci beaucoup de votre appreciation, et a tres bientot de vous recevoir de nouveau avec plaisir claude micheline
Great and peaceful place
Peaceful location away from the main tourist sites yet still easy to get to and convenient for the restaurant and supermarket facilities in Granadilla. Claude was an excellent and unobtrusive host, living on the premises. We communicated in French. Fantastic views and privacy from the sun terrace and short walk to the private pool. We hired a car for our full stay and would recommend that anyone staying there should also hire a car (preferably a small one for parking and access). The property has everything a couple would need for a great stay, although it does lack an oven. Highly recommended.
bonjour merci de v otre apreciation claude a acheter et installer un horno , merci de votre visite claude micheline
Peaceful cottage in impressive setting
We have just spent a very enjoyable and relaxing week in this gîte, situated in impressive countryside away from, yet within easy reach of, the bustle of the southern coastal strip.
The accommodation is well-equipped, spotlessly clean, and is perfect for two people. The sun terrace is huge and gives fine views to the sea and the mountains. Claude and Micheline are excellent hosts. They live on site and are very helpful and certainly not obtrusive!
A car is essential really, although you can access the Tenerife bus routes from nearby Granadilla (3km). The TF1 motorway is only a 15 minute drive away. We were able to explore easily much of the island, including the spectacular Mount Teide.
There is an excellent large supermarket in Granadilla (closed Sundays, although a nearby smaller one is open every day). There are local restaurants, but most were closed in early May when we visited! However, we found an excellent one on the road from San Isidro to Chimiche, the Mirador del Salto “El Cordero” , only 10 minutes’ drive away. The hotel next to the church in Granadilla has a restaurant open to non-residents. The Frontos vineyard (10 minutes from the gîte on the Granadilla-Chimiche road) is well worth a visit.
Overall, this accommodation provides a lovely, relaxing opportunity and we would certainly recommend it.
Charming spot for an extended relaxing stay
This small rustic apartment provided us with everything we needed for our 5 week stay in Tenerife - the sun terrace has amazing panoramic views of the surrounding area and I used the pool every day - and is great value for money. Claude and Micheline are perfect hosts - always available to help when needed and they were very generous with both advice and produce from both hens and finca. Nearby Granadilla is a friendly non-touristy town and although we felt we needed a car there are good local taxi and bus services in the town. If you stay the 20 minute walk to Bar Francis is Los Balanquitos will reward you with a very friendly local welcome and delicious local food and wine.
If you want to avoid the busy touristy areas and find a peaceful haven, this villa is for you. Easy distance from the south airport and lovely quiet beaches on the south coast (about half an hour), and about an hour's drive to Mt. Teide, the villa is an excellent base.
We had a nice view of mountains and sea, not to mention magnificent sunsets, from our large, private, flat-roof patio. We spent some relaxing days sun-bathing on this roof and enjoyed the indoor heated pool, which was just-right in temperature (not too hot or too cold). The flat itself is simply furnished and cosy, and had everything we needed (we were very pleased it included a washing machine-- no need to bring too many articles of clothing!).
Claude and Micheline are wonderful hosts: friendly, helpful and generous. They often left 'presents' on our doorstep, such as fresh eggs from their hens. We're hoping to sample their peaches when we return at the end of May-- Claude also gave us a jar of his homemade peach preserves (and fig jam as well), which were absolutely delicious!
We can't wait to go back!

On the south autouroute take the Granadilla output to about 8 km to Granadilla.
A Granadilla take right towards Chimiche, pass the church, to 2 km and then after the 'Barranco de las Animas Cruz' to about 200m, the speed limit sign '50', take the first right (it s' is a small dead end road). Make 600m on this small road to No. 16, the house is on the right.
The owners live on site, they can inform and advise you during your stay.
