                                      Perfect for a relaxing holiday

                                      The whole process of booking and paying could not be easier with the description of the villa and facilities being accurate. We received an email from Jane before arriving explaining she would be there to show us around and answer any questions. The directions from the airport were detailed and led us straight to the villa. On arrival we were met by Jane and shown around. The villa was well maintained and clean with sunbeds set out. Basic foods had been provided so a cup of tea could be made straight away !!! A folder with all information was available giving you valuable info on the surrounding area. The position of the villa was amazing with sea views and dramatic cliff views behind you. If you want peace and quiet this is the place SO PEACEFUL bliss. We did wander down to the town and it is a bit of a hike back but we did have a hire car so used to park half way down so didn't have to do the last bit. Every evening we went out to eat with our favorite area being Puerto de Santiago as had a variety of restaurants and live music in Route 66 every night. The cocktails were also good here !!!! Los Gigantes is very chilled out with a lot of restaurants not opening until the week after we arrived. We did visit the beaches of Playa de San Juan and Playa de Arena but we preferred to just chill at the villa. Loved it don't hesitate to book if you want a relaxing holiday.

                                      Very impressed with totally wheelchair assessable villa with wheel in / roll in shower and outside

                                      5 of 5
                                      What a find. If you are looking for a villa in Teneife that can accomodate a wheel chair bound person, this is the villa for you. It has all that you need for a lovely holiday. Large bedroom with plenty of space and an ensuite shower room that you can wheel into if you wish. The other two bedrooms also have ensuite showers etc. The living / dining and kitchen areas are also large and a party of six persons have plenty of outside areas to choose. More than one sun bathing area and a convenient covered area for those that prefer shade. One of the garden areas over looks a golf course to the sea which is just a round the corner. There is also shop just a short walk away should you need the odd item. For those that like to keep up to date with British TV you can do this in the living room with all the main channels and more. Wifi is also available for those that like to keep in touch with friends and family back home. We normally have problems finding a suitable villa for my disabled wife but not now. Villa Bougainvillea is the best and we are sure to return. Marika looks after your every need and is at the end of the phone if you need her. Well done you deserve an excellent rating. Thank you again. Mr C Watson and family. Somerset, UK
