About the property

11 acres of private grounds, nature reserve, custom walkways

The 11-acre private estate is situated about 600 meters above sea level. It has two buildings - the guesthouse which is perfect for an occupancy of 4 persons and another house in an old Canarian style which is not for rent. Given the size of the property, guests can enjoy walks through the Laurisilva forest and agricultural areas of the finca. Experience the luxury of a spacious landscaped private space without disturbing neighbors or street noise. Watch the sunset from the terrace or enjoy the magnificent view over the Anaga mountain range and Mount Teide in the distance or pick our own chestnuts, figs, balckberries..

Furthermore this Finca is nearby the villages of Pedro Alvarez and Tegueste. The sandy beach and the pools of Bajamar is a mere 10 minutes drive away and the beautiful World Heritage City and the University of La Laguna is only 5 km away from the house.

Laptop computers with Internet access, television, satellite connection (with all European channels) and DVD are also available. The garden furniture or the hammock also invite the beautiful views and quiet moments to enjoy the day. Depending on the season you can pick our own chestnust, blackberries or figs. Also for children is provided, swings in the garden are available and they will enoy our new tree house. For detailed information, please visit our website: www. fincaelroque. com

Hiking: Walks from the property .

The property is situated on the edge of the Anaga Mountains, making it the ideal starting point for hiking tours. In the immediate vicinity there are several walking tours through the mountains, some of which lead directly to breathtakingly beautiful beaches. You can not just start walking tours of the Finca 'El Roque', but also in the nearby villages of Pedro Alvarez and Tegueste. Anaga is the ideal environment for hiking because of the innumerable paths across the top, by the river banks, through forests, past farmhouses and picturesque villages to the sea. The special feature is the dense, green forest, which spans the entire mountain. This is the famous laurel forest with a long history, dating back to the Cenozoic. For your convenience we provide you with detailed maps and other information on the various walking tours.

Beaches and culture: Only 9km from the Finca, in La Bajamar and Punta del Hidalgo, are magnificent, newly renovated, natural salt water pools and swimming pools for the kids. In addition, sandy beaches in Bajamar, El Arenal (sandy only in summer). In the Anaga park you will find beautiful beaches and landscapes. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Cristobal de la Laguna is located only 5km away from the finca. Let us take the impress of narrow streets, museums, churches, the Cathedral, the traditional Canarian houses or the theater. This tour is an absolute must! The cities of La Orotava and Garachico (which are located in the north of the island) are highly recommended, apart from the Teide National Park. In the neighboring Tegueste you can visit the weekly market with its typical Canarian products.

We loved our stay in the finca el Roque. It is a very comfortable cottge, well equiped. It has a great garden with flowers and woodland, and a beautiful vieuw from the terrace. It is within easy reach of an area of great natural beauty, the Anaga peninsula. Also it is easy to shop nearby.

Excellent choice for nature lovers, very comfy

  • 5 of 5

It has been second time that we chose Finca El Roque for our family holiday stay on Tenerife. We have spent 16 nights in September-October 2013. When planning our trip to the Canary Islands we had no doubt as to where to stay again. And here’s why.

The house is located in the north-east part of Tenerife some 20-30 minutes’ drive from the northern Los Rodeos airport. It is neighboring a rural park Anaga which is a large natural reserve in the north-east part of the island – a real precious stone for hiking lovers. The forest literally begins on the property’s land and continues into the natural park area.

The house is located on a large land plot on a hill slope so you can even have a short walks around. Check the earth-road at the back of the old white warehouse. It will take you up the hill to the wonderful smelling eucalyptus trees and you will still be standing on the property’s land observing the house downhill. The property is covered with chestnut trees and blackberry bushes. Go ahead and try – both taste very good! In clear sky you will see Teide volcano from the house as well as enjoy great views on surrounding hills and valleys.

Shops, supermarkets, pharmacy, cafes and restaurants can be found in various directions some minutes’ away drive from the house. San Cristobal de La Laguna is 10-15 minutes away and most of the things one need can be found there. Besides it’s a very nice place to explore on foot – its historical center has been declared a world heritage by UNESCO. Check the local farmers market in Tegueste (follow the sign “Mercadillo agricultor” in one of the roundabouts) on Saturdays and Sundays for locally grown mangos and avocados and other treats.

The house is very nice decorated and clean, well equipped and thoroughly kept. We found it as good as it was one year ago. There are lots of things for children like swings, tree house, toys and more. And our five year old daughter loved it all.

Summing up after two times on Tenerife we still think it’s the best place to stay for nature and quietness lovers. Will come again and definitely recommend.

Finca El Roque Tenerife

  • 5 of 5

The cottage location within in its own large estate land and enjoying fantastic views of sunsets over Mount Teide is quite idyllic. However, the location is also very convenient for everyday needs of shopping and eating out. La Laguna and Santa Cruz are accessible within 10 mins or less and hence the location provides a great match between historic towns, museums, and great countryside e.g. Anaga Natural Reserve, Parque National del Teide. It provides a great base to see the local/real Tenerife rather than the commercialised tourist spots.

The property description and photographs provide a very accurate representation of a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay.

Carlos was very efficient and pro-active in helping us assess the suitability of the property and location to our holiday needs before booking and then provided great customer service on arrival. He provided great advice of things to do that met our interests and there is lots of useful information provided in the house.

We will definitely recommend the property to friends and family.

An excellent house - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for 10 glorious days in the run up to Christmas December 2012. It must be said that the house is beautifully situated on the hillside in a very quiet and peaceful location but is in no way isolated as there is easy access by car to the local village of Pedro Alvarez, the lovely town of La Laguna and the amazing Anaga mountain park. Plus the owners are very friendly and helpful.

The house itself is ideal, it is fully equipped with all the necessary conveniences plus an excellent wifi connection but for me the best part was the view - there was nothing better than sitting on the patio at the end of the day with a glass of wine, watching the sun going down on Mount Teide - bliss!

I would certainly recommend the Finca El Roque and hope to stay here again

Tolle Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit unserem Aufenthalt in der Finca. Sehr netter Vermieter, der auch gute Tipps für mögliche Unternehmungen gab und allgemein alles schön hergerichtet hatte, z.B. frische Blumen. Alles war wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos dargestellt, sauber, alles funktionierte. Wandergebiete sind mit dem Auto gut zu erreichen. Nett waren auch die tierischen Nachbarn in Form von Hahn und Henne sowie einer kleinen Katzenfamilie, die uns sehr viel Freude bereitet haben. Fazit: Sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man abseits der Touristenburgen einen ruhigen, individuellen Urlaub verbringen möchte.

Wunderbares Haus für Naturliebhaber

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche auf der Finca El Roque. Sehr nette und sorgsame Vermieter. Die Bilder und die Beschreibung entsprechen dem Objekt. Die schöne Stadt La Laguna ist in unmittelbarer Nähe. Außerdem liegt die Finca in der Nähe eines der schönsten Gebiete Teneriffas (Anaga). Unser kleiner Sohn war verrückt nach den Katzen, den Hähnen und dem Baumhaus. Ideal! Einziger Wehrmutstropfen: die angekündigten Wanderwege rund um die Finca sind nicht passierbar, weil verwachsen. Also zum Wandern muss man das Auto nehmen um an einen Ausgangspunkt zu kommen.

Owner's Response: Lieber Gast, Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Es freut uns zu wissen dass es Ihnen auf der Finca El Roque gefallen hat. Nun ist die feuchte Jahrezeit vorbei und und die Wanderwege werden mit dem Traktor in den nächsten Tagen freigeschaffen. Es tut uns Leid dass Sie diese nicht ganz geniessen konnten. Wir hoffen Sie vielleicht ein nächstes Mal bei uns begrüssen zu dürfen. Freundliche Grüsse aus Teneriffa.

Exclusive accommodation for 4 persons with comfort and privacy in an unforgettable environment. The 'El Roque' country house is totally quiet, isolated in a 11-acre plot of land in the Nature Reserve of the Anaga mountain range about 600 meters above sea level. Surrounded by chestnut trees, this property offers total relaxation, breathtaking views in a beautiful green landscape. The ideal location of this farm allows the exploration of the most beautiful and prestigious districts of the Northwest of Tenerife: the towns of La Laguna and Santa Cruz, and the woods, hiking trails and beaches of Anaga and Bajamar (about 5 km away). The neighboring Tegueste with his typical weekly market is also worth a visit. This country house is a place to relax, without disturbing neighbors or street traffic. The international south airport is located about 1.5-hour drive away and the North airport is reached in about 20 minutes.

Golf: Golf in Tenerife is a very special experience: the average annual temperature of 23 ° and the 8 extraordinary courts, which were designed by the best golf course designers in the world,will enchant you. In the north of the island, you can play the Buena Vista Golf and El Penon (about 10 minutes drive away). In the south of the island are 6 further spectacular places and on the neighboring island of La Gomera you can enjoy the unique Tecina golf course.
