George ( Landlady’s son-in-law) picked us up from the airport and took us to the apartment where he explained where everything was and how everything in the property worked. He also gave us tips on how to book trips and told us a bit about the island as it was our first trip there. He even called us the next day to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. He made us feel very welcome. Then at the end of our stay he offered to take us back to the airport which was a very welcome gesture. The area is quiet but that was perfect for what we wanted. The staff in the complex were all helpful and welcoming. The pool was lovely too and warm enough to swim in despite it being January.
Can recommend a trip to Mount Teide and Mus Cat boat trip to see the whales and dolphins. Thank you for a nice few days.
Apartment is independent from the main house and accessed by a narrow external spiral staircase. It had everything we needed, a good shower and a very comfortable bed. There were even suncreams ,shower gels etc and even beach towels. Our hosts Eymeric and Amelie were lovely, very helpful, easy to contact and spoke good English which was perfect for us as we don't speak any Spanish. The only negative was the sound insulation, being up the mountain you could hear cockrels and dogs barking so earplugs are a must. Aldea itself has a fab restaurant Cueva el Campesino which served fabulous food at very resonable prices ,we would highly recommend the pork chops they were massive and cooked to perfection. There are also other cafes ,chemist etc all within walking distance. Also the beautiful castel de san Miguel is here in Aldea although we didn't get time to visit it is beautiful from the outside. You are only a short drive from the many coastal resorts and beautiful beaches and just 15-20 minutes drive from the airport. A good base to explore this beautiful island.
