Make a holiday rental apartment or luxury villa in North Tenerife, Canary Islands your home away from home

Tenerife holidays in North Tenerife is a haven of peace and beauty, far from the usual tourist haunts that captivate the majority of tourists to Tenerife. Traditional lifestyles and agriculture are still very important in the North, and it is here that you will find the most secluded, peaceful and picturesque parts of the island.

Things to do in North Tenerife

The national parks of North Tenerife are a real marvel. Filled with exotic flora and fauna, parks including the National Park of Las Canadas, Icod de los Vinos and the Masca National Park, are well worth exploring, and there are plenty of marked walking trails leading you to the finest spots in the area.

The Tenerife Carnival is held in Santa Cruz, and is often cited as being the second largest street carnival after the famous Rio Carnival. The Carnival is an amazing sight, filled with colour and noise. Graceful dancers, costumed revellers and amazed spectators fill the streets, and the festivals peak, which arrives on the Friday night, is a spectacle in itself, when almost anything goes! Tickets for the coronation of the Carnival Queen go on sale a week before the event.

North Tenerife is certainly not short on beaches either. The coast is lines with beaches, ranging from golden sands to the famous black volcanic sands that Tenerife's beaches are famous for. Water sports are less readily available than they are in South Tenerife, but there are still plenty of opportunities to go scuba diving, deep sea fishign and windsurfing from a self catering North Tenerife villa or apartment.

Places to visit on holiday in North Tenerife

Tenerife’s capital, Santa Cruz, is a fantastically vibrant town, filled with hidden delights. Although the city does sprawl a little, the Anaga Mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the shop, museum and gallery filled streets. The waterfront provides a perfect antidote if you need one after enjoying the excellent shopping. Many people have visited, been captivated and ended up in long term lets in North Tenerife, or even buying!

The coastal town of Candelaria is a beautiful town steeped in centuries of history and famed for the large statue of the Virgin Mary that washed up on its shores in the year 1390. The town is quiet and deeply religious, as well as being a perfect spot to really relax into a Tenerife lifestyle.

Travel to North Tenerife

North Tenerife Airport or Los Rodeos Airport (TFN) is just 11km outside Santa Cruz. Although there are no direct flights to North Tenerife from the UK, there are a great number of connecting flights throughout the Canary Islands, Spain and much of mainland Europe.

Spacious, clean and well placed to enjoy Puerto without a car

4 of 5
We read all the previous reviews and were anxious about the "dated furniture" but it's simply classic furniture of the area. It doesn't detract from the property which is perfectly suited to walking into town (about 25 mins nice and slow - all downhill) (30 mins back uphill, but by then a glass or two of wine helps) The pool man came twice during our week there which gives confidence in the cleanliness of the pool (Freeeezing!!) The two sun-loungers were well used by us. The garden catches the sun perfectly. Karla welcomed us there and showed us around. There are plentiful clean towels but we would recommend taking basic supplies to the house as there are none on arrival. (Karla - the music centre was not working and this would make a nice addition to the facilities on offer.)

beautiful apartment

4 of 5
The 'grand' apartment is very stylishly furnished, comfortable and well equipped. The views are stunning from the three terraces and spacious rooms. Shame it wasn't warmer for us the week we stayed but there were heaters and blankets, which we made use of. The only drawback was the showers were poor, but when we contacted the manager he organised for this to be rectified and it was done promptly. The bathrooms were dated and in need of bringing up to the same standard as the rest of the property but this apparently is planned. However it wasn't really a problem and the rest of the amenities and accommodation made up for it. A car is a necessity for this location and there are several interesting places to visit all within close proximity. We visited Icod de los Vinos, San Marcos, Garrachico, mount Teide and Puerto de la Cruz. The staff and owner were all very helpful during our stay and we would definitely stay here again. There were several thoughtful touches provided to give our holiday a welcoming, luxury touch such as bath robes & slippers, complimentary toiletries, bar, fruit, towels for the beach and more. A lovely holiday.

A cherished spot in the sun

5 of 5
A very relaxing place to stay, number 7 with two bedrooms is one of the best apartments, sun most of the day. Enjoyed the pool, which you often have to yourself, most of the guests go out most of the day. This year there were the first of the avocados plus bananas. Very clean, well appointed apartment. Visited friends and enjoyed the brilliant coffees and the local fish (go to Bajamar), the food is best in the small towns away from the resorts. Las Teresitas best beach, easy to park, good little snack bars. The Anaga mountains and the trip over Teide always excellent. Plenty of small towns along the coast to visit. We enjoyed the lunchtime concert (every Sunday 12am) in the Teatro Timanfaya in Puerto de la Cruz. Best place to shop is Lidl, better quality and price than the local shops and you can park there (Tacaronte, Puerto de la Cruz). The local market on Saturdaymorning, in the centre of La Matanza is good for vegetables.
