Icod de los Vinos, Tenerife, Canary Islands

We would like to share our unique place, a cottage integrated in Nature surrounded by a forest in the proximity of El Teide National Park but only 15 minutes away from the beach. You will have access to the whole property included in a 17.000 m2 land. It has it all, tranquility, peace and access to northern Tenerife. Our home is ideal for hiking, birdwatching and stargazing and made for those who love traveling experiencing the real thing but like to stay away from crowded touristic areas.

Our cottage was rebuilt following old traditional Canary Island style homes. Located in the mountains, our 17.000 m2 property is integrated in a forest of pine trees very closed to El Teide National Park, numerous trails around, the Wind Cave (Lava tube), the and the ancient Drago tree. It has fruit trees available and...

About the neighbourhood
The town of Icod de los Vinos, meaning ‘the local wine,’ is cut deep into the hills of Mount Teide in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Situated at around 230 metres above sea level, Icod has almost 10km of shoreline running along the northern coast of Tenerife and is surrounded by a lush and fertile valley responsible for producing many of the islands crops.
A small yet bustling town, Icod is more a one day stop destination for tourists to explore and enjoy on foot rather than spend a longer period of time at. Idyllic cobble stone streets pave the way for an old town rich in Canarian tradition, offering sweeping views of the impressive Mount Teide and its evergreen canopy that envelopes the top half of Icod.
Getting around
To get to our house you will need to rent a car. Any car can make it there (depending on the load) although we recommend to rent a diesel engine car to drive to our house and around Tenerife. A small car with 4 adults and 4 big suitcases won´t make it up as some turns are a bit steep.
