Within easy distance of the tourist centre of Puerto de la Cruz and its beaches, Lido Martianez and the historic town of La Orotava with its beautiful architecture. Tourist attractions such as Loro Parque (5km) and the Botanical Gardens (1km) are all within easy reach. Loads of restaurants and street life in the near vicinity. A car is recommended but good taxi services are cheap and available 24/7. Personal guiding can be provided by English people, fluent in Spanish. Car hire can be arranged with airport collection and delivery. This property is owned and managed by an English family who have been resident on the Island since 1906, so in depth knowledge of the Island and its attractions is a speciality. The Valley of Orotava is in the North of the Island where the landscape is truly breath-taking. The house is uniquely located with beautiful views of the sea, the peak of Tenerife (Mount Teide) from the mature and landscaped gardens. The house is ideally fitted for three generations to stay at once. Disabled access is good. We are happy to arrange catering for dinner parties and special occasions. The property is cleaned on arrival and exit and maid service can be arranged by prior appointment.
We make an additional charge of £150 per extra person per week for parties of 7 to 9 people. These prices are for residents older than 8 years old, but all children are included in the first 6 guests. (So, if your party is more than 6 people then the charges apply, unless you are two adults accompanied by 5, 6 or 7 children all under 8 years old. In this case we would need to adjust your price prior to confirmation as the system will charge persons 7, 8 and 9 as an extra). All prices, length of stay and terms are adjustable prior to final confirmation and booking by the owner and renter and we would be happy to consider your specific requirements (additional days, extra people, specific needs etc.)
The location of Santa Barbara, whilst quiet and rural is only a short distance from the towns of Puerto de la Cruz and La Orotava. Puerto has all the amenities one would expect from a modern, world-class tourist resort. La Orotava is a traditional Canary town, a conservation area, with old buildings in the Spanish colonial style, with many Canary features too. The house was a family home of a British resident family for many years and has a prime location, overlooking the sea, and with excellent views of Mount Teide, the peak of Tenerife, the highest mountain in Spain at 13,000 feet. A wonderful day's excursion is a trip up to the Cañadas National Park, a volcanic lunar landscape, with a cable car trip to the top of the mountain. From the peak on a clear day you can see all 7 Canary Islands and the coast of Africa, 100 miles to your east. The villa is a great base for exploring the whole Island, and the North offers a quality of landscape and sightseeing that won't disappoint.
