Overview

About the property

Mountain cottage Magallotes ideal for hikers, birdwatchers and nature lovers.

We would like to share our unique space with guests from all over the world, a house integrated in Nature surrounded by a forrest in the proximity of El Teide National Park but only 15 minutes away from the beach. It has it all, tranquility, peace and access to the beautiful northern part of Tenerife. You could spend the day at the beach and in no time go up to the house to light up a fire in the rustic, cozy kitchen-dinningroom.

Our Tenerife cottage, traditional Canary Islands style home, is integrated in a forest of pine trees within a 17.000 m2 property, right at the limits of El Teide National Park. It´s a 2 bedroom with 2 complete independent bathrooms one in each bedroom. Main bedroom with a queen bed, a sofa bed and full bathroom. Next to the main house building a second bedroom with 2 single beds and another full bathroom. There is a big kitchen-dinning room (best part of the house :)) with barbecue and a porch with a confortable sofa excellent for reading or just sitting watching the views of our beautiful forest.

There are many trails for hiking around our house that will take you all over the CORONA FORESTAL, from Arenas Negras Recreational Area to Los Realejos. It´s a fantastic opportunity to discover nature, bird watching, hiking, mountain biking and enjoy spectacular views, yet we are only 15 minutes away from the city of Icod.

To get to our house you will need to rent a car. Any car can make it there (depending on the load) although we recommend to rent a diesel engine car to drive to our house and around Tenerife. A small car with 4 adults and 4 big suitcases won´t make it up as some turns are a bit steep.

PETS are allowed under certain conditions, please contact us for details.

Recommended visits:

1. Cueva del Viento. This Long Volcano tube (70km) is near our house and guided tours are provided in various languages. Please for more info check their web site and make sure you make reservations ahead of time.

2. Beach San Marco, only 10 minutes away.

3. Garachico, about 20 minutes away, beautiful old downtown and natural sea pools. Excellent pizza at Bacco restaurant :)

4. Don´t miss visiting Volcano of El Teide and its surrounding, Las Cañadas. There is a cable car that will take you from the base to 3.555 meters. If you feel like climbing the last 200 meters make sure you get a permit at "reservasparquesnacionales", click on the option language. Again, make sure you plan ahead of time and make reservation through their web page, only very few people are allow to climb up those 200 meters every day, small groups of 8 to 10 people.

5. Loro Parque, dolphins, killer whales, seals shows, alligators, tigers, gorillas and impressive Pinguin and sharks aquarius. It will take a whole day and excellent for kids.

6. Masca. Excellent views and breathtaking road. About 40 minutes from our house.

7. Taganana. Part of Montes de Anaga in the other side of the island, certainly worth the drive. About 50 minutes from our house.

8. La Laguna old downtown, excellent for a walk with the family, La Laguna Cathedral and La Concepción Church, and in between small stores and cafeterías. Excellent for coffee and a snack.

Some other information:

Mini market, 2 km away.

Supermarket, 15 minutes away.

Closest restaurant, 5 minutes.

Downtown, about 15 minutes away.

Nearest hospital, 15 minutes away.

Paragliding, 25 minutes away.

Why Sergio chose North Tenerife

When my wife Yani and I arrived at this home the first time we felt in love with it. Even though we had a lot of work ahead to really give the touch we wanted, our enthusiasm put us through this project that turned into what is now our beatifull cozy home. The views, the forrest around it, fruit trees, and trails bring us deep into nature the moment you walk out of the car.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is a wonderful retreat! The area feels quite remote, and very peaceful. Hiking trails are all around the house. The village of Icod was a short drive, perfect to pick up groceries or enjoy an afternoon barraquito. There are attractions to discover relatively close: Cueva del Viento (Lava Tubes) and the cable car to the top of El Tiede. So many things to do. The home itself is beautifully furnished and decorated. It had every amenity we might need. The large kitchen is perfect as a family gathering room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Others have said many very good things about this cottage and I can confirm that it is all true. We stayed in the house with 2 persons for 9 nights and had a wonderful time. Our visit was in March 2015. I met Sergio at a restaurant in the nearest village. The directions he gave me were easy to follow. The house itself is very remote in the mountains, at about 900 meters above sea level. You can only reach it by car and it is hard to find, but Sergio will lead the way as you arrive. The ride uphill to the house is a steep pathway and quite exciting, but our Seat Ibiza made it, even in the hard rain that we once had. To reach a restaurant or supermarket you will have to drive about 10-15 minutes. The house is very well equipped with everything you need: kitchenware, gas stove, TV (which we never used), heating (which we were glad to have), internet connection (which works really well even though you are deep in the woods), fireplace, comfortable furniture, towels etc. Everything is in very good condtion. The main house has a bedroom for two, a kitchen and a livingroom that has a nice view towards the forest. There is also a seperate smaller house next to the main building which will have space for 2 more people. Sergio is a very friendy and helpful host. He gave me a thorough explanation on how to use heating, WLAN, fish-feeding duties etc. He will gladly give all kinds of recommendations on sights, restaurants and activities on Tenerife. Sergio will usually reply to any question you have within a couple of minutes. If you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere and a good base for your trips across the island, I'm sure you will enjoy your time on Tenerife in Sergios house as much as we did.

Beautiful quiet location, perfect for a nice holiday away from large resorts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sergio's and Yani's villa. The location is spectacular, albeit with an interesting ride up the mountain to reach it. With a decent car, this was not a problem. The house is in a beautiful quiet location, but within easy reach of several nice towns.

When we arrived, Sergio was there to welcome us, and we appreciated the welcome basket of goodies. Everything was as described, and the house looked even better in real life compared to the photographs. The telescope to enjoy some stargazing was an added bonus.

We had a great stay in Tenerife, and in large part this was due to the fantastic house. It was perfect for our needs, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay away from large purpose built resorts.

a great secluded escape!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this property very much as well as surroundings. The best feature of this house is the location. Although it may be challenging to find it on your own but Sergio is kind enough to arrange the meeting point and spend a considerable amount of time to explain everything about the house.

`We definitely recommend this place for a relaxing and calm time off.

Great house & surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This house is something special! the other positive reviews are spot on.

The drive up is daunting, coming from a pancake-flat country (Denmark). If you make it all the way up, you are rewarded with a charming home off the beaten track.

Our 3 young children all slept in the attached "potato room", which is located in a separate unit next to the house. They loved it.

Sergio was very helpful before, during and after our stay. We could not ask for a better host.

We highly recommend this home.

Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rural location then, Sergio's villa is the place to be.

You will need a car as the house is situated up, up and up a long winding road.

Once there, all you can hear is the wind in the pine trees and bird song.

The grounds of the house itself are enormous with many walking tracks departing from the door.

The accommodation is first rate and Sergio, a very affable man, can not do enough for you.

We were greeted with a table full of welcoming snacks and wine.

For those of you able to master it, there is a telescope for exploring the night sky. Light pollution is almost non-existent.

We recommend visiting the volcano tube, 'Cueva del Viento' only 3 km away. They take small groups in various languages through their web page.

Going up to Volcano El Teide using a ride, teleférico is an excellent and fast way to climb the peak and experience incredible views.
