Luisa Hernandez and Karl Trojan

Luisa Hernandez purchased this chateau / country house in 1993

Why Luisa Hernandez chose Arico

The Spanish family Hernandez / Galvan is a great farming family rich in tradition, which since many generations, resides in Tenerife and has large landholdings. We are continuing the tradition of planting our villas with organic wine and tropical fruits. Our forests are replanted, and from the

private, 4-kilometre deep water galleries (mine shafts) we get a lot of mineralised, pure spring water, which rises with a temperature of more than 34 degrees Celsius out of the rock.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Out of the old Canarian houses in our possession, we have chosen the most traditional one, stylishly renovated and furnished it completely. In these houses not only a beautiful holiday is possible, but also

the contact to Spanish lifestyle is provided.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

It was the first time we stayed in a private country house, but I can honestly say that we will never stay in a hotel or apartment again.

Our first experience was great! Everything went smoothly on this holiday. From kind communication with the owners to a fab holiday in this lovely well styled spanish house. Located in a little spanish village with great views to mountains and sea.

The house and terrace were very clean, comfortable and has everything that you need. From comfortable meals on the terrace, sunbathing

around the swimmingpool, chilling in the tropical garden with a drink of excellent spanish wine. Really relaxing.

This house in the little spanish village Arico is away from the crowds, but close enough for a nice stroll to the shops, bars, beach etc.

We would definitely stay again in the Casa Almendro.

a lovely country house in a little spanish village

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Almendra had everything we could wish for and was much larger than we thought.

The kitchen was a benefit and it had plenty of work top and was well equipped with everything we could want including a kettle and coffee maker. There was a full oven and microwave and fridge freezer etc but we ate out most of the time as there were splendid restaurants (reasonable prices).

The pool was lovely and the sunbeds meant we spent a lot of time around by the pool in the subtropical garden.

The beaches of Arico were a 10 minute drive away - but there were shops, bars and restaurants, banks and a

supermarket within a short walk. We were so happy in the villa and surrounding area that we only ventured around the island, twice during a 2 week stay as we wanted peace and quiet.

The casa Almendra was easy to find and just a 20 minute drive from the airport. Also about the same distance from a golf course.

The house was clean and well maintained and a joy to stay in. We would recommended it to family and friends and we will book it for next year again.

Sehr schöne Wohnung in einem ruhigen Dörfchen am Hang des Teide, tolle Vermieter!

  • 5 of 5

Ruhiges Spanisches Dorf mit gutem spanischen Restaurant, Bäcker, Apotheke, Bäcker, Fleischer, Mini Supermärkte und medizinische Versorgung! Auto ist notwendig, aber das ist es sowieso, wenn Teneriffa entdecken möchte. Wenig touristisch und sehr entspannt, wer also gerne auf sonst üblichen Trubel verzichten möchte ist hier gut aufgehoben. Ebenfalls, wer den klassischen Touristen aus großen Hotelanlagen aus dem Weg gehen möchte! Der Pool ist nicht beheizt, zur Erfrischung an heißen Tagen, genau das richtige. Waren zur Elternzeit 4 Wochen da und es hat an nichts gefehlt. Zwei Hochstühle und zwei Babybetten waren vor Ort da :-)

Wir waren 3 Wochen ganz alleine, die anderen Wohnungen waren nicht belegt. Haus und Gartfn sind gut gepflegt, der Hausmeister und die Putzfrau sind regelmäßig da.

Luisa und Rayko helfen gerne weiter sei es bei der Übersetzung beim Arzt oder bei fragen zum Einkaufen oder welche Orte man besuchen sollte. Luisa hat uns einen Tag mitgenommen nach Icod, sind eine schöne Strecke gefahren.

Die Paella bei Luisa mit typischer Musik und Gesang von Einheimischen war toll und erlebt man so nicht überall. Das Wetter war im Oktober perfekt um noch einmal richtig Sommer zu erleben bei bis zu 35 Grad sind wir ordentlich ins schwitzen gekommen. Die Mandeln waren reif und die Granatäpfel.

Es sind nur 6 km den Hang runter nach Poris de Abona zum Sandstrand und einem niedlichen Café. Bis zum loro Parque 45-60 min ist auch ok, ist dann halt ein Tages Trip. 20-30 min vom Flughafen Süd entfernt.

Gerne wieder!!!!!

Tolle Unterkunft mit herzlicher Gastgeberin

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Oktober für 10 Tage im Casa Alemendro 2. Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön und sehr gut ausgestattet. Den positiven Ausführungen meiner Vorgänger schließe ich mich an und möchte nicht alles wiederholen. Was ich aber nochmal hervorheben möchte ist Luisa die hier absolut den Unterschied zu anderen macht. Sie ist eine herzliche, hilfsbereite Person die jederzeit für Ihre Gäste da ist. Einen wirklich unvergesslichen Abend haben wir bei Ihr bei einem Abendessen verbracht.

Ein wunderschönes Urlaubs-Zuhause

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im November 2016 für zwei Wochen in der Casa Almendro 2. Eine wunderbare Unterkunft, sehr hübsch (und auch praktisch) eingerichtet. Eine der schönsten Unterkünfte, in der wir jemals waren! Man kann sich dort wirklich sehr wohl fühlen und einfach verweilen und entspannen, wenn man mal keinen Ausflug machen möchte.

Luisa, die Vermieterin, ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. In ihrem Garten kann man leckere Früchte ernten und frische Eier von glücklichen Hühnern bekommen. Und ihre Einladung zu einem netten Abendessen bei ihr haben wir gern angenommen. Vielen Dank für die Leckereien und den unterhaltsamen Abend!

Arico ist ein ruhiger Ort mit einer guten dörflichen Infrastruktur (Supermarkt, Bäckerei, Metzgerei, 2 oder 3 Restaurants) abseits des Massentourismus. Im Supermarkt kann man Salsa und andere lateinamerikanische Musik hören - die beste Supermarktmusik, die man sich vorstellen kann! Von Arico ist alles gut per Mietwagen erreichbar.

Für uns waren es zwei wunderbar entspannende Wochen in Arico in der Casa Almendro. Wenn man nach Teneriffa verreisen möchte, sollte man die Casa Almendro unbedingt in Erwägung ziehen! Die Fotos bringen die Atmosphäre sehr gut zum Ausdruck. Wir sind sehr froh, dass wir diese Unterkunft zufällig gefunden haben!

Fantastische plek, met smaak ingericht, heerlijk terras en tuin met uitzicht over de oceaan.

  • 5 of 5

Heerlijke 3 weken gehad in almendro. De woning is zeer compleet, wifi werkte vlekkeloos. Het dorp biedt alle basics op loopafstand en Arico is een goede uitvalsplek om het eiland te verkennen. Tenerife heeft Prachtige stranden en baaien en het El Teide park is een ervaring die je meegemaakt moet hebben in je leven. Huurauto is niet duur (netals benzine 0,90 ct/l). Uit eten (heerlijke tapas) met 2 kinderen minder dan 50 euro (ook in Arico op loopafstand).

De paëlla avonden bij Louisa zijn onvergetelijk, echte spaanse, gemoedelijke sfeer. Ook de kinderen hebben zich al die tijd prima kunnen vermaken, al dan niet op een mooi strand of het eigen zwembad. Nog een paar tips: bootje huren bij Los Gigantes en in een baai gaan zwemmen. Playa Bollulo voor fantastische branding en uiteraard het waanzinnige, rauwe, vulkaanlandschap van het Park El Teide (voor de kabelbaan vroeg komen of dag van te voren tijd reserveren via internet). Vanaf 3700 m heb je rondom een fantastisch uitzicht. Alles goed bereikbaar met de auto en je rijdt hier nooit 'om', want elke rit is een genot. Maar ook de woning met zijn tuin (+zwembad) met palmen en ligstoelen is zo gerieflijk dat je nauwelijks weg wil. (Nb. Alles zeer schoon, overcomplete keukeninventaris, strandhandoeken, parasolletje, strandmatjes, paar lekkere flesjes wijn uit de eigen wijngaard). Ook de andere appartementen waar vrienden van ons zaten waren pico bello met ieder weer zijn eigen charme.

Samenvattend; uitstekende prijs kwaliteit verhouding. De meerkosten van de reis en auto heb je hier snel terugverdiend. En als je ergens niet uitkomt is er altijd nog Louisa (spreekt goed Nederlands) die te hulp schiet.

Gewoon een keer doen; je krijgt er zeker geen spijt van.

The villa is situated in Tenerife South, in Arico. This Spanish town is not influenced by the hustle and bustle of tourists, but has the charm of a dreamy Spanish idyllic countryside. The place has a good infrastructure, all the facilities required for local services, such as supermarket, bank, bakery, butcher, restaurants, florist, hair salon, gas station, pharmacy and medical centre with helipad for emergencies (24 hours), etc. are all within approximately 500 metres. The local wine growers, where you can taste and also buy wine and olive oil from the local farmers is about 1 km, and if you feel like tasting goat and sheep cheese directly from the farm, you can also get them within a radius of 1 km. Nothing stands in the way in a romantic self-catering holiday with an opportunity to get to know the Spanish lifestyle and culinary delights. Tenerife, soaked by the warm Gulf Stream, has a very mild climate and is also famously known as the 'Island of Eternal Spring'. The beaches invite you year-round for swimming and with a trip to the highest mountain peak on the island, Mount Teide, one crosses all climatic and vegetation zones from 0 to 3785 meters above sea level. The mild climate combined with iodine and salty sea air activates and has a salutary effect against chronic inflammations and allergies etc.

Tenerife is a Spanish province with the capital 'Santa Cruz', therefore, the island has all

facilities of a state capital such as schools, university with different faculties, university hospital,

medical care, all shops, administrative authorities, agricultural, commercial,

catering and cultural facilities, in addition to all the tourist attractions. The favourable geographical

coastal location, with the highest annual sunshine hours in Europe effects not only on the quality of life,

but also makes it possible to facilitate production of renewable energy through extensive photovoltaics

and wind turbines. Agriculture is promoted by this climate, because in most cases,

a permanent crop rotation exists and the markets have freshly harvested regional fruits and

vegetables all the time.

The colonisation of the island has historical origins, the original inhabitants, 'Guanschen', who were the

descendants of Vikings, were replaced by Spanish invaders and they had taken the Spanish island in

possession. In course of this historical evolution, the old towns and villages also came up with their

monuments. And 'Loro Parque' in Puerto de la Cruz, 'Auditorium' in Santa Cruz,

'Siam Parque' in Arona are some of the tourist attractions to mention a few.

The island has a well-developed road network. From Arico one can reach almost all points of the island

from within a radius of 100 km with minimal traffic signals.

The coast with several sandy beaches is about 6 km, that is, about 10 minutes away. Distance

to the Tenerife South airport (Reina Sofia) is about 25 km, about 60 km to the capital Santa Cruz,

Los Gigantes - located in the south - about 60 Km.
