This 8,000 metre estate is one of the few examples left from a more splendid age which Tenerife knew when the Island was a paradise known only to a few Europeans. The 'finca' has outstanding views of Teide, the sea and the Oratava Valley. Its situation is excellent for travelling to other parts of the island as it is close to the motorway yet only a few minutes from the beach and the centre of Puerto de la Cruz. Close to the finca is to be found one of the best restaurants in the area. Although the origins of the finca dates to the XV1th century, the house itself dates back to the early XXth century. It is an elegant house with large rooms which have been carefully maintained. Mainly traditional furniture. The tropical gardens are a special feature with charming and secluded corners where one can relax with a book or merely admire the scenery. For the more energetic there is a tennis court with tennis racquets available free of charge, a swimming pool, a sauna, all set in lush vegetation with fruit trees. These facilities are shared amongst the 5 houses. This spacious house stretches over two floors with access to a rooftop terrace. Enjoy meals at the long dinner table on the ground floor, or on the outside patio in front of the kitchen. The master bedroom with its wide screen windows is the most special bedroom of the house – you may have to toss a coin. For sunbathing in private use the small rooftop terrace. From the roofs tower platform enjoy a spectacular 360° view over the Orotava valley and the Atlantic Ocean
My name is Ana B. Reid. I live in Tenerife and I have been many years receiving clients on this spectacular finca, doubtless the most spectacular one I have seen in Tenerife. Its proximity to Puerto de la Cruz makes it a comfortable place to stay. I know the area very well and I give all the guests very useful information about beaches, restaurants, and must on this side of the island, where you can find 80% of the Tourist Attractions. I also have a lot of experience with tourist, as I studied Business Administration at University, I was selected to participate on the exchange students programme with Manchester University and a Master on Leisure and Tourist industry. Afte my studies, I worked in several companies until March 99, when I started her own project with a company specialising on Tenerife and called Tenerife Country Villas, getting the Tourist License from Gobierno (Goverment) de Canarias. Coming from an English family, I perfectly understand the wishes and hobbies of our European visitors, and being a Tenerife native, I have real information about the island, such as access to any subject which might interest my clients. Welcome to Tenerife!
Ana B. Reid purchased this house in 2001
We have had many clients here and this holiday house is always improving. All our clients come again or recommend it to our friends, which is the guarantee that it is working well. It is a very quiet property, although it has very easy communications everywhere. It has a restaurant with garden only 30 metres from the house that we highly recommend. the elegance of this house is everywhere: on the pergola with views, on the picturesque chapel with many stories behind and the extremely ample spaces.
Having a Tennis court is a great advantage, also having a sauna. The pool is heated up to 24ºC and it is a large one, ideal if you like swimming. On the other hand, it has daily cleaning service from Monday to Friday, which is definitely a must. There are only 5 houses on the finca, which guarantees the privacy considering the property is 8000 m2!
We couldn't believe what a brilliant place this is. The location is perfect for seeing the north of Tenerife. You can easily walk to La Orotava, one of the loveliest towns I've seen in Spain, get to most other places by nearby public transport, or access the motorway system in minutes. The site itself has to be seen to be believed. It is beautifully landscaped and maintained with magnificent views, and perfect for sunbathing by the pool, if you like that sort of thing. The house, one of a number on the finca, and each different from all the others, is of a classic design and furnishing. We used the sunny terrace as it was January, but there are two other terraces in comparative shade, perfect for when it gets hot. Any problem we had was quickly resolved by Lucy. There were some minor irritations, but we hope to go back again.
Nous avons passé un sejour merveilleux dans cette villa avec nos enfants. La propriété est superbe avec une belle vue sur l océan et sur le Teide, avec tennis' piscine ´ espaces verts, tout y est pour passer de bonnes vacances. C est très bien entretenu, propre ( la femme de ménage passe tous les jours dans la villa). Et l emplacement sur l ile est parfait pour visiter les alentours et le nord de l ile. Nous reviendrons avec certitude !
After quite a bit of research, we booked with Finca El Drago for a week in the North Of Tenerife.
We knew it can be slightly cooler/wetter in the North but we preferred to get away from the concrete jungles of the South and to be honest, with a hire car you can get the best of both worlds.
You also get better value accommodation in the North which is another good benefit.
We also wanted to be nearer the authentic parts of Tenerife and to sample some local restauants and not just tourist traps.
The accommodation itself was very spacious and was very well cleaned every other day. The flat had character too that only an older building can offer.
The small complex seemed very safe and secure and everyone we met were really nice and friendly. We didn't feel that we needed a safe to store valuables in
The gardens around the property is a real asset and gives the property a relaxing setting.
The laundry room downstairs was a handy benefit too.
We never tried the bus service but would recommend hiring a car, (cicar seem to have the fairest insurance set up from experience) to get to restaurants, shops and nearby towns of Puerto De La Cruz and Orotava. Garachico is lovely too and not that far away by car.
Also, if the weather turns against you, often a relatively short drive in Tenerife will let you find different weather!
We would definitely stay here again and thank the staff for a nice stay in the meantime.
This is a beautiful apartment with a nice (shared) swimming pool. It has great facilities and is quite luxurious - highly recommended as a relaxing place to stay. Cleaners came in most days. The two towns close by are very nice but the immediate surroundings to the (very secure) apartments are not brilliant (fairly close to main road and mostly need to drive to get to shops, restaurants etc) - no problem if you have a car, but might be a hassle otherwise (though the buses may be good - we didn't use them...) Handy location for El Teide volcano and great walking trails a few miles away in the hills.
I was working with a colleague in Tenerife and booked at the last minute. Having had a very swift response, the villa was lovely and far above expectations, made easy by staff including Lucy, one of the maids. Could not recommend it enough, and thank you for all your help and kind attention
We are a family of four (2 young children) and this is without doubt one of the best properties we have used for our holidays. From our initial enquiry to Ana, through to the completion of our stay, Ana, Lucy and the on-site team looked after us extremely well and enabled us to enjoy every minute of our time in Tenerife.
There are five rental properties sharing the superb facilities of tennis court, sauna and swimming pool, as well as 8,000m2 gardens (tended by on-site gardeners daily). The pool is a nice temperature, the court is full size, and the entire property is safe and secure for children with locked gates and walled gardens.
Don't be put off by the proximity to the motorway, it really is not noticeable.
There are some great local Canarian restaurants and other useful facilities nearby.
We will definitely be back in the future.
