Make a holiday apartment in Los Gigantes your home away from home

Perfect for guests who want spectacular natural scenery and plenty of relaxation, holiday villas in Los Gigantes are on Tenerife’s quiet west coast. Here there’s low-key tourism and some breathtaking sights that include cliffs that reach heights of half a kilometre. Play golf, unwind at spas, visit natural beaches and enjoy day trips to Tenerife’s top attractions and sights.

In a part of the island where the landscape is so dramatic, many holiday apartments in Los Gigantes command incredible views of the coast and its cliffs, or the low-lying mountains inland. Allowing guests to make the most of the sun without having to travel are private pools, while interiors are fitted with the kind of appliances and facilities that will make a self-catering holiday a real joy, with internet access and satellite TV offered by many rentals here.

Things to do

-Beaches: Los Gigantes has one beach—a black sandy bay between the marina and the rocks. It is about 200 metres long, and as the main beach in the area is complemented by excellent facilities and services. Not far away in the Santiago del Teide is Barranco Seco, a stunning natural beach, 600 metres in length with calm, transparent waters. To be closer to this lovely beach, take a look at HomeAway’s list of holiday rentals in Santiago del Teide.

-Local sights: Los Gigantes takes its name from the giant cliffs that make up a great deal of the local coastline. Unmissable are the Acantilados de Los Gigantes, huge basalt vertical walls that have to be seen to be believed. Standing at heights of up to 500 metres they are one of Tenerife’s most spectacular natural attractions.

-Golf: At Los Gigantes visitors will be a simple drive from a variety of golf courses. On the west coast these courses take advantage of the dramatic terrain to provide memorable experiences. Abama Golf for instance has one hole 315 metres above sea-level, with striking views out to La Gomera. Buenavista Golf to the North is on the edge of the Macizo de Teno, and sits beneath tall cliffs.

-Other activities: Just north of Los Gigantes the landscape becomes incredibly craggy. This is the volcanic Teno mountain range, which is an unforgettable place for walks, not least because of the rich birdlife that the range supports. Nature-spotting is also available by water—this side of Tenerife is on several whale migration routes, and there are local companies offering cruises to catch this unforgettable sight.

-Day trips: Los Gigantes is neatly positioned on western Tenerife, providing access to both the north and south of the island. For guests who want to explore historic towns, the north boasts gorgeous old settlements like Garachico and Icod de los Vinos. For all the fun and action of modern resorts head for Costa Adeje and Playa de las Americas, where there are lovely beaches and world-class attractions like the spectacular Siam Park. For guests who would like to be nearer the action of these resorts, HomeAway has a selection of holiday accommodation in Callao Salvaje.

Weather in Los Gigantes

One of the many things that sets Tenerife apart from Mediterranean destinations is the sub-tropical climate. This a result of the Canary Islands’ location, not far from the coast of Morocco. On Tenerife temperatures are consistently warm throughout the year. There are really only two seasons: winters bring moderate warmth with highs of 20?C or so and occasional rainfall; guests heading for Los Gigantes apartments in summer can expect daily temperatures to rise to around 27?C.

Travel to Los Gigantes

For holidaymakers travelling to Los Gigantes villas from the UK, the airport to use will be Tenerife South (TFS). This destination is served by a range of charter and budget airlines all year round. By car it will take about 40 minutes to make the trip up Tenerife’s west coast from the airport, using first the TF-1 highway and then the smaller TF-47. Given the relatively remote location of Los Gigantes use of car is recommended.

                                                                                                      Just back from a two week family holiday in this home from home with fantastic outdoor space and views. The house is fully equipped with every convenience including a large capacity fridge/freezer, plenty of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cutlery etc. The outdoor spaces and pool are fantastic and include a shaded dining area. Outside there are 7 sun loungers, 7 recliners, 7 outdoor dining seats and 3 patio tables. I counted 15 bath towels plus several hand and pool/beach towels also. Changes of bed linen were left in the wardrobes and there is a handy large covered patio with a number of clothes lines when such items have to be washed. The house was clean and comfortable, albeit a little old fashioned but old fashioned doesn’t bother me as long as it’s clean and it works. All bedrooms had ceiling fans, mirrors and dressing tables. There was also a tower fan in one of the bedrooms and we bought a second one in the local ferretería. Access instructions were very easy to follow. When I informed Tara our departure flight was a late one she readily offered us the use of the house for as long as we liked as she did not have people checking in that day. We were so grateful as it meant we didn’t have to hang around in 30 degree heat! The location is fantastic – only a short walk to either Los Gigantes or to Puerto Santiago. There are 2 large supermarkets within walking distance and a large Mercadona within a few minutes drive. Alcala and San Juan are nice places to visit within a short drive also. So, why 4.5 instead of 5 for this property? There are a few small issues in the bathrooms – the interior workings of the toilet cisterns don’t seem to shut off the flow when the cistern is full which means there is a small flow of water constantly going into the toilet – so perhaps replacing the plastic interiors would fix this? The tap in the twin room leaked at the base so we had to put a face cloth around it. The junk in the garage and downstairs cupboards needs to be cleared out.. this area is not part of the living area but still. Since we had a large 7 seater car we were not sure if it would fit so we just parked it in the courtyard. Did these small things affect our holiday? Not at all. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend and return ourselves. BTW calima can cover a spotless patio, pool, windows and outdoor furniture in a very short time as we experienced ourselves during our stay!

The villa is in probably one of the best locations in Los Gigantes, at the top of a hill with breathtaking views of the mountains, marina and ocean. We happily walked down into Los Gigantes most days and got a taxi back costing around 3 euros. The villa is in a lovely, quiet location, the pool was a good size and was cleaned regularly. We took a trip to Lidl to get some groceries and cooked alot in the villa, with plenty of space to cook and sit altogether inside or outside. The bedrooms were good sized with comfortable beds, bathrooms clean and gave good showers! We took a few trips around the island but quickly realised how special Los Gigantes is, the people in the bars snd restaurants were so kind and lovely with our children; it really felt like home. Its worth mentioning that the small bay isnt the best, but we were happiest around the pool and happy to travel to better beaches if we fancied it. We caught the bus and used taxis instead of hiring a car. Wifi would have been great, but we coped without it. Overall, really impressed and will definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful holiday :-)
