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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We booked this finca after having been let down by another location booked on booking.com in the south of Tenerife (El Medano). Boy are glad the other guy double booked. This is set in the most gorgeous grounds which have been beautifully tended with a view of El Teide (on a clear day), the foothills, a nd rolling farmland down to the coast at Puerto Cruz. It has a (slightly) heated pool in a lovely sunny lawn, a tennis court, a gazebo overlooking the sea view for sundowners, laundry room, citrus trees, parrot in a cage, lots of cats (they don't bother you) and even a private chapel on the grounds. There seem to be about five units ranging from one to four bed. We stayed in the three bed one which had a lovely secluded terrace, three spacious rooms, two bathrooms, one between two of the bedrooms with a door off each and the other ensuite to the third room. The dining/sitting room was spacious but a bit dark - we didn't use it at all preferring to eat on the terrace or in the kitchen but for a larger group and/or in really hot weather it would be handy. The staff are lovely with cleaning six days a week. We had a car but didn't use it in the evening. There are a number of restaurants a short walk away and if you are fit a 15minute uphill walk takes you to the heart of La Orotava (but beware on a Sunday night there are almost no restaurants open there). Other night we caught the 350 bus to Puerto Cruz takes about 20mins - operating every 30 minutes till well after midnight - €1.45 each and either the bus home or a taxi for €10. Very close to the motorway but we couldn't hear any traffic although an American couple staying in another unit did mention hearing some. The grounds are full of little nooks and crannies to read quietly or just enjoy the sun or watch the goat herds. Oh yes and there's a sauna which we only discovered late in our stay. I think we may be back here.

There is a sun terrace but when we were there, to face the sun you have to look away from the sea. Also this terrace is viewable from the narrow winding road, popular with walkers, above and leading to the property. There are 2 excellent restaurants within walking distance, El Bollullo adjacent to the lower part of the property, though it closes at 7 pm, and the San Diego at the bottom of the road down into El Rincon. The food and service here were excellent and it was full on a Thursday night in February, so I would advise booking at more popular times of the year. There is a good path into Puerto de la Cruz , though quite steep in places. If you are looking for somewhere self-catering away from the crowds but close too essentials, this place ticks a lot of boxes.
