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.

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.)

                                                                                                      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.

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.
