Why Ray - Sheila Atkins chose San Miguel de Abona

We purchased the property in 1995 and slowly developed the cottages over a period of time.

The main reason for purchasing what was really a ruin of old farm buildings and an old house was the amazing potential and great location. We are just 15 minutes from the airport the beaches, golf courses and yet surrounded by an idyllic rural location. The added advantage of having the shops of San Miguel just a few minutes walk away, coupled with the friendliness of the local villagers and the distance from the touristy areas made our choice the right one.

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits of staying at Tenerife Self Catering - La Bodega are very simple.

If you want a relaxing holiday a home from home with all the comforts. Do not want to be surrounded by hordes of people, would like to enjoy a location away from the tourist areas, yet be close enough to beaches, would like to enjoy the local restaurants of San Miguel or walk to the bakers for your freshly baked bread for breakfast. Then this could be your ideal holiday destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Its always really nerve wracking when you are looking for your 'perfect' place to stay whilst on holiday... so it is such a delight when you find a gorgeous and wonderful sanctuary as this bodega; you've done an amazing job, Sheila and Ray on this beautiful old building. The attention to detail is everywhere. From the comfort and friendliness factor to the faries on the wooden log in the garden. So glad we came to Tenerife and even more thrilled we stayed here... Will recommend to all.' Louisa and Cameron

'The outstanding feature of La Bodega is the unique experience of being amongst local people which you would not have on any package holiday. Your attention to peoples needs are second to none. Wish we had a little longer to relax around La Bodega, hopefully we will get another opportunity soon.' Tania & Frank West Midlands UK

'25 years coming to Tenerife- this is by far the best. Congratulations and many thanks for an excellent stay. Will be back best wishes' James & Julie

Paradise in Tenerife

  • 5 of 5

We were made so welcome and nothing too much trouble for our hosts Ray and Sheila. The accommodation is beautifully done and everything you need for a relaxing and memorable holiday is at your fingertips. San Miguel is a short walk away where you can find the real Spanish way of life, tranquility personified. I can't rate the whole experience highly enough....needless to say we will be back in the not too distant future. If you need a true break away from all the strains of life this is for you.
