The property is in the neighborhood of EL GUINCHO in Garachico, northwest of Tenerife (area called Isla Baja).
The house is divided into 2 independent dwellings that do not share common spaces but could be rented together if necessary and host up to 8 people from the same family.
It is a picturesque house more than 100 years old. In the reform completed in 2016 we have respected the original architecture especially on the ground floor of the house. The upper floor is accessed through an outdoor patio where the kitchen, living room, and terrace, in that space have taken advantage of the magnificent views with large windows that let in plenty of light even in winter.
Being close to the sea, it is an area of moderate and stable temperatures throughout the year.
Although the house is located in a rural environment and surrounded by bananas, you will only have 5 minutes by car the cores of Garachico and Icod de los Vinos.
Garachico with its important history has some beautiful streets and squares in which to stroll and some magnificent restaurants in which to enjoy the local cuisine facing the sea. In some parts of the island young chefs are emerging with a great future and Garachico is one of those places.
And the town of Icod de los Vinos, with a thriving trade in which you will find everything you need and tourist attractions such as its historic center and the Millenary Drago.
