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.

Probably the main reason that visitors flock to Garachico is to see the Castillo de San Miguel. This 16th century structure was built to guard against invading pirates and now houses a fabulous rock and fossil collection.

It seems a rare find in Tenerife, a private villa with pool and garden and the local area was quiet but well serviced. Otto is meticulous meaning that the villa was spotless on arrival. The check in and check out is very thorough so allow time for this. I would agree with an earlier review that the bedding is not luxury but it was adequate but if you are particular about it I would suggest you take your own. (I took a mattress protector for my little one!) I have suggested to Otto that, if there are other families with young children, he might wish to provide plastic crockery and cups - I would have been a little less anxious had these been provided, in the end we went and bought disposables which was fine. For older children there would be no concerns and the villa would be extremely well suited to them. Otto visits on a daily basis but is unobtrusive and was very helpful. All in all we had a lovely time, the villa was an excellent base for us and I would recommend it to others.
