Make a holiday apartment in Puerto de la Cruz your home away from home

Holiday homes in Puerto de la Cruz are primed for family getaways. The location is superb, next to one of Tenerife’s top resorts. Here there are magical beaches, exciting family attractions and golf courses to enjoy. The nature here is glorious too—there are volcanic landforms, sweeping valleys dotted with banana plantations, as well as the awe-inspiring peak of El Teide in the distance.

Almost all holiday apartments in Puerto de la Cruz offer access to a pool but are also within a few minutes of the ocean and several beaches, which gives guests plenty of flexibility when relaxation is the order of the day. Interiors are neatly appointed, with smart appliances like wi-fi and satellite TV provided. Most rentals have two bedrooms, which are ideal for new families. To broaden the search, the nearby resort of La Orotava also has plenty of holiday rentals.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are six beaches at Puerto de la Cruz, ranging in character and appearance. There’s a small one at the harbour in the heart of the town, and here the waters are remarkably calm. Martíanez is a gorgeous volcanic bay, with lively waters favoured by surfers. Playa Jardín is perhaps the most picturesque beach—it is lined with palm trees and has a large curve of dark sand where there are all the services and facilities required for a perfect day at the beach.

-Natural sights: Puerto de la Cruz is within the Orotava Valley, which is a stunning natural park full of ravines, cliffs, gullies and vibrant greenery. El Teide is almost always visible in the distance. This 3,718-metre-high volcano is the tallest landform in the whole of Spain. Visitors can take a cable car up most of the way to the top, and from there either scale the peak or take in the views from scenic lookouts.

-Golf: There are three courses on the northern side of Tenerife. The nearest is La Rosaleda, which is a nine-hole par 27 with gorgeous views of El Teide and the Orotava Valley. It’s ideal for newcomers or experienced players who want to work on their short game. Just over half an hour to the west of Puerto de la Cruz is Buenavista Golf, designed by Seve Ballesteros, while northeast is the prestigious Real Club de Golf de Tenerife.

-Cuisine: For those interested in sampling Tenerife’s cuisine, guachinches are the restaurants to visit, serving indigenous fare. Among the many dishes to try are fish casseroles and vegetable soups and stews. Salmorejo meanwhile is rabbit marinated in paprika, garlic and chilli, and then grilled. Another way to get to know Tenerife’s culture is to arrive in time for the Carnival in February, and stay at a holiday rental in Santa Cruz, the island’s capital.

-Family attractions: One of Tenerife’s most popular days out can be found in Puerto de la Cruz. Loro Parque is a zoo, originally oriented towards parrots and birdlife, but now containing a host of other animal species including gorillas, jaguars, giant tortoises, otters and alligators, while there are also demonstrations involving seals, dolphins and orcas.

Weather in Puerto de la Cruz

Weather conditions on Tenerife are springlike throughout the year. This is due to the island’s position, not far north of the Tropic of Cancer, and in line with winds that blow from North Africa and across the Atlantic from the Caribbean. Puerto de la Cruz holiday apartments are on Tenerife’s northern coast, which is known for being lusher than other parts of the island due to increased rainfall. Almost all of this rain occurs in the winter, between November and March. Daily temperatures at this time of year peak at 18?C, while the rest of the year gets consistent highs that hover around 23?C.

Travel to Puerto de la Cruz

The closest airport to Puerto de la Cruz holiday homes is Tenerife North (TFN), which is 20 minutes away and has links to mainland Spain and other European destinations. Holidaymakers from the UK will need to use Tenerife South (TFS), which is about 90 kilometres away on the south side of the island. This airport has a host of flight connections to the UK, generally with low-cost airlines. Use of a car is recommended—the drive to Puerto de la Cruz from Tenerife South will take around an hour on the TF-1 and TF-5 roads.

It is about 20 mins walk down to the town which is all down hill but we just got taxis back which where only 5 euros. Todor the villa manager is a diamond he will go out his way to help you with anything he sorted out tickets for us for siam and loro park we left it up to him and he turned up on the morning with the tickets and took us to siam park. The table tennis table and the bluetooth speaker where well used and the pool is lush on a night with its different coloured lights only 1 down side and im probs being picky and that it could do with a few more kitchen utensils like an electric whisk or hand whisk a potatoe masher and some bigger saucepans.just a tip for people getting taxis, take a photo of the street sign on your phone to show the taxi driver as it is very hard to explain to them the street name.thanks to phil for letting us stay in this villa and a big thanks to todor for all his help THANKS FROM THE BARTLETT CLAN XX
