Make a holiday apartment in La Orotava your home away from home

For people who want to discover Tenerife’s rural north look no further than HomeAway’s range of holiday apartments in La Orovata. Here the towns are old and carefully preserved. Many of the beaches are wild and natural, but it’s also possible to access ones that are full of facilities for families. The landscapes inland are gorgeous too, with lush valleys, banana plantations and steep ravines.

Holiday homes in Santa Catalina will be a comfortable, family-friendly base from which to enjoy days out, beach trips and hikes. Gardens are provided by most rentals and many also afford knockout views out over the Atlantic. Interiors provide the facilities need from modern holiday accommodation, with fully equipped bathrooms and kitchens, as well as satellite TV and internet access at most rentals. For accommodation at another Tenerife destination loved for its rural character, browse our choice of holiday homes in Tacoronte.

Things to do

-Beaches: A little off the tourist trail is El Bollullo, a beach accessed only via dirt track. It’s a beautiful bay, 400 metres long and enclosed by rugged cliffs. Unlike some beaches on the island that have artificial sands, this beach has fine volcanic particles, a remarkable sight for the uninitiated. Just as scenic is Los Patos, which is even longer, stretching out for a kilometre and with no sign of tourist development to be seen. Also known for its rugged coast is Tacoronte.

-Nature: La Orotava is part of the large valley of the same name. This is considered one of the most scenic places on the whole of the island—the valley is 10-by-11 kilometres with a landscape of banana plantations, gullies, cliffs and gorges. This is a fine spot to explore on foot or by bike. In the distance is the iconic El Teide, Spain’s highest peak. This stratovolcano can be scaled via cable car, and the most daring visitors can even climb to the peak by prior arrangement.

-Day trips: There’s much to see within a short car trip of La Orotava. West are lovely old towns like Icod de los Vinos and Garachico, which have managed to keep their historic centres perfectly preserved. Move on from there to the western tip of Tenerife and behold the imposing beauty of the Macizo de Teno, where there are dramatic volcanic cliffs and caves.

-Golf: The north coast of Tenerife has three fantastic golf courses, all of which are within 45 minutes by car. The closest to La Orotava is La Rosaleda, which is great for families as it’s a nine-hole course aimed mainly at newcomers to the sport. Serious players could go west to Buenavista or east to Real Club de Golf de Tenerife for high-end 18-hole courses in inspiring volcanic landscapes.

-Family attractions: This is a good spot for families with kids in tow, as two of Tenerife’s top attractions will be effortlessly close. Across in Puerto de la Cruz is Loro Parque, where visitors can admire a host of animal species, from jaguars to giant tortoises. Right here in La Orotava meanwhile is PuebloChico Tenerife, with scale models of all of the Canary Islands’ top landscapes and buildings.

Weather in La Orotava

Springlike conditions will be in store no matter the time of year that guests come to a La Orotava holiday home. The period from November to March is a little cooler and wetter. In this season there are daily highs in the upper-teens and occasional rainfall. The summer though is almost always dry on Tenerife. Temperatures reach 24?C by day, and there’s abundant sunshine from April to October.

Travel to La Orotava

For holidaymakers travelling from the UK the main way to get to La Orotava apartments will be to use Tenerife South Airport (TFS). This airport handles lots of flight routes from the UK, mostly with budget and charter airlines. After arriving the easiest way to reach La Orotava will be by car. The drive takes about an hour on the TF-1 and TF-5. The island’s other airport, Tenerife North (TFN) is closer, but is served mostly by domestic Spanish traffic.
