We have just come back from a wonderful week end of sep into october staying at Finca Oscar Burchard. When we arrived we met Fabian and his staff at one of their family resturants El Calderito de la abuela which i cannot recommend enough its lovely.
We followed him by car to the finca and he showed us around the garden which is just amazing with so much fresh home grown produce from avocados and bannanas to peppers, chillis and herbs that are also used in their resturants.
His welcome was so lovely and the welcome pack fantastic including the fresh pastries :). He shows you round the finca thoroughly which i have to say was the best equipped most organised holiday rental we have ever stayed in and was lovely and clean and their garden fantastic and great to explore.
Your allowed to pick all the fruits and vegetables for free, which is wonderful.
The views from the finca are amazing from every room, we did not use the pool as a bit tooo cold for the time of year but lovely to sit round it lounging about on a rest day.
The area is lovely and authentic, La orotava is beautiful and has much to offer, if you like good food, beaches, nice walks and friendly locals.
We had a lovely dinner in the resturant mentioned above, the staff were lovely and friendly, the food absolutely fantastic and authentic and the sea view is a must to reserve and was lovely meeting Mario Fabians brother chatting exchanging tips and life experiences.
We felt sooo at home and were sad to leave.
The north is the place to be to experience genuine authentic culture and hospitality and loved Garachico and La Orotova the museum on the carpet of flowers festival is a must see.
Thank you Fabian and Mario for your help and such a lovely stay and making us feel sooo comfortable and a fantastic holiday, we wish you and your families all the best in the future :).
For anyone reading previous reviews about dog barking, we only mainly found it on the weekend and odd weeknight however after first day or two it did not bother us in the slightest and would most definately come back again as its sooo worth it, p.s the wine cellar is amazing.
My husband and I stayed in this Villa for 6 nights for our honeymoon. We have nothing but praise!
The Villa itself is lovely and clean, nicely decorated, with everything you could need for your stay. The pool is brilliant, a nice size for a cooling dip.
The location is very secluded! Only a couple of other houses can look onto you. You will definitely need a car if you're staying here, the hills are a killer! But there is lots to do just a short drive away.
Marta met us at the Villa, and she was fantastic. She gave us lots of tips about the Island, where was good for food, where to shop, days out etc! Nothing was too much for her, she was amazing!
Overall we cannot say anything bad about our stay in this Villa. If you need a relaxing break away from city life, this is perfect!
