Garachico is a picturesque village situated to the north of Playa de la Arena, approximately 40 minutes drive away. The village was the victim of a violent lava flow from the volcanoes on the island in 1706. This created lava rock pools which are one of the main attractions of the village. Garachico is also home to the Church of Santa Ana and the former Convent of San Francisco. The church had to be rebuilt after the damage caused during the volcanic eruption. The convent is a beautiful example of Canarian architecture with stunning wooden balconies. The convent also houses a small museum. Visitors can also visit the Museo Capinteria Antiga, a little artisan museum situated at the seafront of the village.

The ground floor property is well situated, being about 20 mins by taxi from the airport and within walking distance of local shops, bars/restaurants and beach. The apartment complex is nicely laid out with a well-designed swimming pool and sunbathing area, well-maintained gardens and a pool-side restaurant offering good value food and drinks. On arrival, we found the apartment to be clean, modern and very well presented, with all towels and linen provided. It has 2 good-size bedrooms, a comfortable and airy lounge/dining area with TV, internet etc. and a kitchen that has everything you need for self-catering including, cooker, fridge, microwave, toaster and washing machine. The owners seem to have made every effort to ensure that their guests' needs are fully catered for. The lounge patio doors lead onto a spacious, outdoor terrace with garden table, chairs, sun-loungers (and childrens' paddling pool) - ideal for eating outside at breakfast or in the evening and a real sun trap...! A real bonus was the delightful sea-front promenade close to the apartment that we could walk along in the early evening to reach several good restaurants and bars (and enjoy some great sunset views)! The whole holiday from booking through to departure was very enjoyable........ we would definitely recommend. Malcolm D

Stunning views down the mountains and lovely peacfull village. Carl, Gwen and the family who live next door and look after the apartment were lovely, they could not do enough for you but at the same time left you to get on and enjoy your holiday. The locals were lovely and we ate in El Chamo most evenings. staff were all very pleasant, warm and welcoming and The food was amazingly good as was the wine. Great area for exploring the local villages and coastline not to far to drive to. You will need a car to get places as the local shops are are very small and the nearest supermarket etc... is about 30 mins drive. It can get a little cold as it's up in the mountains and temperatures drop on an evening. Just what the doctor ordered, peace and tranquility 👌
