Make a holiday apartment in El Medano your home away from home

The largest and the most visited of the seven Canary Islands is Tenerife. Millions of tourists flock to this volcanic island every year to partake of dramatic landscapes that rise into rugged, snow-capped peaks and drop into valleys and ravines. It also boasts a sand and pebble coastline. Few places provide a more ideal base for exploring the touristic wonders of Tenerife than El Medano holiday homes. These mainly consist of luxurious apartments preceded by gentle lawns and tidy flower gardens, but visitors can also choose to stay in a duplex townhouse that is close to the beach. Modern villas commanding breathtaking views are among the pick of the options provided by HomeAway. Besides cosy, stylish furnishings, El Medano holiday rental residents can look forward to private pools and WiFi among other facilities.

Things to do

-Wild outdoors: Visitors will have the rugged, untamed wildernesses of Tenerife at their disposal for unforgettable outdoor adventures. At the Parque Nacional Las Canadas del Teide they can embark on a ‘moon walk’ that leads them through barren, rocky volcanic terrain, a series of magnificent sites that create a soothing silence about the place. Those fit and daring enough can ascend the El Teide Mountain which rises to over 3,000 metres. Another reserve, the Parque Rural de Anaga, also provides excellent hiking grounds, but visitors with a passion for bird-watching or photography should drive down the Masca Valley.

-Watersports: There are numerous activities El Medano holiday home residents can indulge in during their stay. They could book tours with scuba diving operators for dives around Tenerife’s coastline, an activity visitors can engage in regardless of the time of year they visit. There are also surfing camps that holidaymakers can join regardless of whether they’re seasoned surfers or not. Both surfing and bodyboarding lessons are offered to beginners and gear can be hired from a number of these operators. Jet skis are also available as are catamarans for cruises in the ocean.

-Golf: Those who book holiday homes in El Medano with a relaxed round of golf in mind will not be disappointed. In fact, they'll find several clubs to choose from: they can try the Buenavista Golf Course which sits right on the Tenerife coastline, where – if they drive with too much zest – golfers will watch their balls bounce onto the rocky coast and on to the Atlantic. To the south of Tenerife is also Golf Las Americas, a popular Championship-standard course that has hosted many tournaments.

-Monuments: Tenerife has its share of religious monuments and visitors will want to pass by the beautiful Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Pena Francia. Right from the outset, this building captivates with its clock tower and arched windows. The interior is covered in intricate sculpted works of art depicting various biblical personages. Boasting an almost similar design is the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria, with its altar covered in dazzling artwork.

-Museums: Those on holiday with their kids will want to visit the Artlandya Doll Museum which has a huge collection of dolls made from all sorts of materials. History buffs can browse the artefacts depicting the early life of the Canary Island’s original inhabitants, the Guanches.

Weather in El Medano

Seeing as it shares a latitude with the Sahara Desert, it is no surprise that El Medano experiences warm weather throughout the year. From January to December temperatures average between 22 and 29°C. Those who book holiday homes in El Medano in August will find the weather at its warmest and driest, so should expect days with temperatures reaching into the thirties.

Travel to El Medano

There are two airports available to visitors flying into Tenerife: Tenerife South and Tenerife North. Those headed to El Medano holiday rentals will want to use the former as it not only handles more flights; it is closer to their destination. From the airport there will be buses to carry visitors over the remaining two miles of their journey.

The apartment is well equipped for all your needs and although we didn't use the cooking facilities everything you need to be self sufficient is there. The bedrooms are of a reasonable size and the beds are comfortable. In the bathroom was a huge pile of clean towels for our use and the shower is pretty good too. The complex is quiet and the apartment has a balcony which is nice to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun. All in all a great apartment at a good price. The owner is easy to deal with and you have access to assistance should you require it who lives locally
