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.

                                            Very relaxing holiday

                                            5 of 5
                                            Comfortable villa in a complex which has an excellent pool and very helpful reception staff. For us, the highlight was the west-facing balcony/terrace. This overlooks the sea and we dined there at sunset every night of our stay. The view is terrific: the Los Gigantes cliffs to one side and, on some nights, the unique phenomenon of a wall-like cloud bank moving across the sea towards us. This produced some fascinating effects – an exceptional sight! The owners were very helpful with our preparations and responded instantly to a little problem we experienced while we were there. We had a very relaxing stay.

                                            Couldn't ask for anything better!

                                            5 of 5
                                            I've always found it difficult writing reviews of holidays when we get back to the real world of 'normal' life, and so I'm writing this while we are actually here. It's our second visit to apartment 'B', and it certainly won't be the last. The apt itself has everything you ever need. You could spend a week here and not venture out. The balcony is the real showstopper, and it's easy to spend whole days just gazing out to sea, with the famous Los Gigantes cliffs to your right and nothing but sea, and the island of La Gomera in front of you. It is truly a remarkable view, and the sun bathes the large balcony from morning until night, when you can watch it sink over the horizon, with some spectacular sunsets. The balcony is about 300 square feet, and so there is plenty of room for the large table, four chairs and two comfy sun loungers. There is also a retractable awning for when it gets toooooo hot. Lesley, the owner is incredibly helpful, both before and during your stay. Any assistance or advice is handled speedily and very efficiently. Los Gigantes itself is a lovely place. It is quite self contained and is easy to either walk or taxi around. There are numerous restaurants and bars if you wish to eat out, and there are three or four supermarkets to choose from, including the familiar Lidl. The communal pool is clean and very well maintained, and is on the same level as the apartment, but far enough away so that any noise from the pool doesn't reach you! If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Los Gigantes, look no further than this superb apartment. I don't think anywhere else could compare.

                                            Fantastic!

                                            5 of 5
                                            The first thing to say is that none of the other reviews are lying - we stayed at Lesley's fabulous apartment from 21-28 April and did have somewhat raised expectations as the reviews were so glowing! I also work in travel writing, so am quite used to seeing a fair bit of poetic license... however, I have to say that this is without doubt one of the best apartments I've ever stayed in. Lesley really has thought of everything - from the superbly equipped kitchen to wonderfully comfortable beds (it's surprising how often even the big companies get this wrong) to the extra touches of a welcoming bottle of cava, binoculars, candles, sewing kit etc and - my particular favourite - an extra blind over the window in the bedorom to help keep out even more light. Everything was clean and carefully thought of, and Lesley was efficient and helpful right from the get-go of our query. I particularly liked that she asked us to text when we arrived as it was the caretaker's day and off and 'she'd worry' that we'd got there OK and all was as it should be. The view was stunning, especially those breathtaking sunsets, and we did see dolphins with the help of the binoculars! The balcony was a joy to spend time on, we had sun from around 10ish til sunset - loved that swing! - and we found the apartment quiet and the pool peaceful and well maintained. The walk down into Los Gigantes was a delight, though the hill took a little bit of getting used to coming back up - though you soon get used to it, and/or there are taxis. We enjoyed the beach, the lido, and several of the local restaurants, and we'd a hired car before coming (shop around, it was insanely cheap) for visiting Teide and Masca - both quite unmissable. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone - even the most picky would be hard pushed, in my opinion, to find fault - but the best accolade I can give it is to say I've been to Los Gigantes several times over the years, but never wanted to stay in the same place twice. Here, we do actually plan to go back!
