Commanding dramatic views down the valley of volcanoes to the sea and La Gomera, this historic property is perched above the hurly burly of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas (15 mins drive) and near the picturesque villages of Arona (3 minutes) and Vilaflor (10 minutes drive). Vilaflor is the gateway to dramatic Las Cañadas and Teide National Park.
Once a large, imposing nobles' strong-house, this is a rare Canarian architectural jewel in the south of the island. Part of this property has been renovated into a striking 4-bed home with beautiful old wooden floors and beams to a high standard so you can enjoy all modern amenities to hand.
We have acquired another portion of the house which we hope to renovate in future to further protect this, the oldest house in the south of Tenerife dating back to the earliest Spanish settlers.
This unique property is suitable for those who enjoy the dramatic, serene nature of the location. It is the perfect place to get away from it all, yet be close to all the big attractions of south Tenerife.
It has good WIFI and all the main UK TV channels, including BBC.
It is not suitable for those wanting guaranteed hot sun year round (Nov-March can be cooler up here, although lots of hot, sunny days too - pot luck in winter!) or lots of loud bars and restaurants on the doorstep.
The pool is treated with salt, not chlorine, which is much kinder to the skin (especially for children) and leaves no nasty residual smell. It is roughly 8mx5m, and almost 2m deep, and the pool is maintained twice-weekly by our team.
Although the pool is heated, it gets to around 22 degrees in winter, so if you want a guaranteed hot pool in winter months, you may prefer a house right by the coast.
This is a historic property in Canarian style, with thick stone walls and wooden floors. It is at 800m altitude, hence the spectacular views and peace and quiet. Please note we we only hire to mature adult or family groups.
We run a company called GeoTenerife (www.geotenerife.com) and can organise intimate volcanic, geological, birding or astronomy tours for your family with local, bilingual guides while you stay at the house if you'd like something more than a bucket and spade holiday. It's a little known fact to most tourists that Tenerife is a hot spot of biodiversity - there is so much amazing nature and dramatic scenery to see here if you want to venture away from the bars and beaches.
GeoTenerife is ABTA registered, so your booking at the house or for a tour is fully protected.
The house's dramatic pool area and views were recently used as a location for Finisterre's Summer 2016 surf wear catalogue. See: http://www.finisterre.com/lookbook/summer/
Please note there is a resident cat at the property called "Angelita", for whom we leave food in the cupboard. She is very tame and sweet! However, she can live out and is an excellent mouse hunter if you prefer not to have her live in during your stay.
