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.

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    Villa Roma is a spacious property - with three decent sized bedrooms and bathrooms for each. The heated pool is pleasant and extras like wifi were great. We made great use of the pool table and table tennis round the back too and liked having three different areas to eat. The air con in the bedrooms was great, though ironically we didn't end up using because our baby was getting a bit congested because of it. The villa is in La Caleta which is about 15-20 minute drive to most of the attractions/las Americas/Adeje/Puerto Colon, which suited us as we hired a car whilst there. I can't comment on accessibility by public transport. The nearest decent family beach took about 25 minutes to walk to and there are small supermarkets with a couple of minutes walking. The sea is two minutes away and there are several nice, but pricey restaurants along the front. There's a kids play park across the road from the villa which got plenty of use too! The villa if anything is in need of a little investment. Things are a bit grubby and whilst it was tidy enough when we arrived the floors were mega dirty - not a problem if you don't mind keeping your shoes on indoors. We're used to barefoot so it was more noticeable for us. The pool would benefit from a scrub too, but they were fine for what we needed. Likewise the dishwasher was a bit rubbish and we couldn't get the TV working as the internet didn't seem strong enough. Could have just been us being a bit useless through. We had thought ahead to bring Apple TV with us and we used this most days instead. The servicing involves getting towels swapped on a Thursday, then bedding and towels are done on Mondays. We were there 12 nights all in. At no point was the villa cleaned for us, just beds made (once) and fresh towels. Again, we didn't mind this as are happy to clean our own mess, but you shouldn't expect more than this when going. The owner is very responsive. We had some issues with a burst pipe on the day we arrived and a plumber was sent promptly to sort it for us. Overall a great place. We only booked for a week but chose to extend our stay whilst out there as we were enjoying ourselves so much. It would be excellent value if all the rooms were being used too (we only went as a family of four so didn't use the top floor). I would recommend and would stay here again if visiting Tenerife.
