Places to Visit on Holiday in Tanque, Tenerife

Tourists on their holidays in Tanque will discover that this is one of the most attractive corners of the island of Tenerife and is well worth plenty of exploration in its own right. Mount Teide National Park is a short drive away from the town and this is where you will find the highest peak on Tenerife and actually a huge and dormant volcano. You are even able to climb to its summit and there is a cable car to help you out if you’re struggling. On your holidays in Tanque, a rental car is a very good idea if you wish to head to the north-east of the island and the busier resorts of Los Cristianos and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Average temperatures during the winter months will be in the mid to high teens degrees Celsius. Summers are warm and very comfortable with an average temperature of around 22 to 24 degrees. The area around Tanque is very lush and green for a good reason - the average rainfall here is around 16 inches per year.

Wonderfully renovated house for a small family (but does not have separate bedrooms)

4 of 5
The house looks very much like the pictures and is a carefully and lovingly renovated old country house. A lot of the restoration work (e.g. the tiling) is almost artwork and some of the furniture is handmade and very charming. The owner Botho (who lives on the property) is rightfully proud of his renovation and is very friendly and helpful with restaurant and tour suggestions. We had 5 nice days in the house even though it was not exactly how we imagined it. Some of this is probably our own fault (maybe we did not read the details carefully enough), but I do want to point out clearly to other potential renters exactly how the house is laid out: You can enter the main room or the kitchen from the courtyard. The main room and the kitchen are connected by a door, and from the main room you access the bathroom and the stair to the first floor. The main room also contains two of the three beds in the house and some slightly impractical furniture. In other words, the central room downstairs is both a (double) bedroom, a lounge, and a hall. Upstairs, there is a wonderful high-ceiling room with a large double bed and a sitting area. The point is that there are no doors except to the kitchen and bathroom, so all three beds are in the same connected area (although on two floors). There is thus very little privacy, also because everybody has to pass through the central downstairs room when using the bathroom. The rental is classified as a 3-bedroom house on the web page, which is misleading, and when you read the details carefully, you will see that one of the bedrooms is in a separate annex (rented separately). Still, it’s a stretch to even call it a 2-bedroom house because of the lack of separate bedrooms. For a small family, this may work fine, but if you want privacy at times (which our teenage children do), this is not the optimal rental. Note that the only heating is a wood-fired oven in the kitchen (with a fan to distribute the heat), and that use is charged 10 EUR/day extra. During our visit in mid-February, it was a little cold and damp, especially at night, but we did not bother to fire up the oven over night. Also note that the kitchen has no oven.

Spacious and well located for walking

5 of 5
The photos on the website don't really do this property justice. Sitting in an elevated position you have a view over the sea and the island of La Gomera to the west and banana plantation to the east. Inside and outside there is a lot of room for two couples or a family. The ground floor terrace is lovely for meals in the evening and the swimming pool area is fantastic, again with wonderful views. The property was ideal for our purpose as a walking base for the Tamaimo valley which is spectacular. An hours drive ( it looks much nearer!) gets you to Mount Teide and it's an easy hour an a quarter drive to Santa Cruz. Large Mercadona supermarket nearby well stocked with the basics and local specialties with a Lidl a little further on. Highly recommended.
