                                                              A perfect hideaway rental

                                                              Compact but extremely well equipped with loads of outside space. Despite its rural location, there are two restaurants within walking distance of the appartment! A good base for exploring the island, away from the main tourist traps but with a car, everywhere is easily accessible. Very warm welcome from the owners. Good value for money!

                                                              A Gorgeous private Spanish Villa indeed!

                                                              Everything about this villa was bigger and better than I had imagined. For sure, the pictures did look good but the space inside and outside was way beyond our expectations. The very private back garden is the size of a tennis court with a backdrop of a wild hillside full of kestrels, buzzards and more. You could comfortably fit at least five cars at the front within the locked perimeter if you wanted to - we only had one. The villa was nicely prepared and clean when we arrived and our deposit was returned promptly after we left. On the negative side for some, I would say you need a car or be prepared to use taxis as it is a little out of the way. The seclusion suited us well. Also, the dogs in the bungalow some way behind and to the side were quite noisy. They barked at every sound we made at first but did settle down after a couple of days. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anyone who likes seclusion and does not want a beach just across the road.

                                                              Hi everyone. I have just returned from our holiday in Candelaria in Tenerife. Franco's villa is even better than it looks in the photo's. The pool is fantastic and the garden totally private. The villa was very clean and we had welcome drinks and snacks on arrival. We had the whole house to ourselves, but I believe you can hire room by room as well. Franco lives upstairs, but has a separate entry. He was gone most of our stay, but we were never aware of his presence and felt totally comfortable. The ensuite bathroom has a spa bath that was a lovely surprise and is not mentioned in the profile. Franco himself is a charming and happy man who welcomed us warmly and helped us plan our activities. He has a vast knowledge of the island. We did most of the things he suggested and had a fabulous time. The restaurant he recommended provided delicious local food at an excellent price. The villa is walking distance from Candaleria and very close to the motorway, so you can access most areas of the island within an hour. The weather is warmer on this side of the island, so fantastic for swimming. I would recommend this villa to anyone. Thankyou Franco! It is rare to meet such a warm and enthusiastic person such as yourself. Gwen
