Notes:
The 11 hectare private country estate has two dwellings (the Finca el Roque and the new "Old Barn"). The Old Barn is more luxurious and to be inaugurated on 15 November 2017 . Given the considerable size of the property, our guests will be able to hike through the ancestral Laurisilva Forest and the farming areas of the property while experiencing the luxury of a private space. One can also sit on the terrace and enjoy the sunset and the magnificent view of the Anaga Mountains and the great Teide volcano in the distance… And that’s not all. Tegueste and Pedro Alvarez are few kilometers down the road. The beaches and natural pools of Bajamar are only 9km away and the World Heritage city of La Laguna is just 5km from the house. THE HOUSE: 2 Bedrooms with king size beds 1 bathroom 1 kitchen-dining area fully equipped 1 living room

comfottable cottage in a beautiful location near nature reserve

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

12 fabulous nights in Finca El Roque

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of three with 4 years old child) have spent 12 nights in Finca El Roque in September-October 2012. We found the house exactly in line with its description and very well kept and nicely furnished. The owners thought of many details round the house making you feel rather at home than away. Not to mention swings and kid's tree house. The house is situated on a large land plot on a quiet hill slope with nearest neighbors far-far away from you. Yet it is only 2 minutes' drive from the supermarket and some local amenities and 5 minutes' drive from La Laguna with its nice walking historical centre, market, shops and cafes (and most of other services one might need). On weekends there is a local farmers market in Tegueste which is 2 minutes' drive from the house. The house is perfectly located next to Anaga rural park with wonderful forests and natural landscapes and lots of diverse walking routes. Basically the nearest route we found was just a 5-7 minutes' drive from the house into the mountains. At the same time if you want to spend a day at the sea, the beach in San Andres (playa Las Teresitas) with its golden sand and breakwater is only 20 minutes away. Ask the owner for directions to playa de Benijo to visit one of the most beautiful beaches you might have seen. And yes, it is also not far away from the house. In general we found the location of the house very comfortable to explore many natural beauties of the island and a perfect place to return to in the evenings to relax and recharge for the next day. So if you look for a quiet place in the natural surroundings it is a very good choice. Definitely would come here again and recommend to friends.
