“Meditaion on a finca.”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just how do you begin to describe such a wonderful place. Well I’ll start with the location, definitely away from all the tourist tat of the southern coast. The finca is situated between the two coasts at about 900 metres in lush forest. Although the owners recommend a car I used a bike and public transport without any problems, during a two month stay. I recommend walking to Agua Garcia to catch the bus to La Laguna and returning via La Esperanza both 25 minute walk, buses run half hourly. If you are loaded down with shopping etc then a taxi will cost you 4 euros. With a car you can be anywhere on the island very quickly.

There are several accommodation options on the finca besides the one I stayed in. All are clean, I would describe the feel as rustic/alternative most with wood burners. I stayed during February and March, lighting the fire at night time and although not cold it took the edge of a chill. Saying that I sat out most nights to eat, day time was positively warm most days. Internet access is available although some of the locations may require you walk to the main house for a signal. The real attraction of this place though is the farm (organic fruit trees) and the people you will encounter. The trees are trained so that the fruit grows low down, so you end up walking through fields of apple, plum, orange, lemon and kiwi, they taste every bit as good as they look! Brigitte is the wonderful lady who looks after the place and is great linguist and authority on all things natural. I met lots of interesting people during my visit, musicians, permaculturists, artists etc…. There is definitely a strong sense of spirituality about the place, something that becomes even more apparent when you leave.

Tips.

If you plan to climb Teide book your access permit before you go and do the walk at the end of your stay so that you have acclimatised to the altitude.

Positively the best place on the planet to cycle but be aware it is very hilly and is not cycling for softies! Perfectly located for road cycling you can climb to over 2000 metres on a continuous 45KM road. For mountain bikers you just cycle out of the door onto the best trails on Tenerife.

Get the bus to the Anaga mountains as this will give you flexibility on your routes. A note on the maps, do not rely on them as they are more of an artists impression than something that could be thought as accurate! The cliff walks are something else… oh and you will escape the tourist hoards too!

Negatives.

None really, as has been previously mentioned this place is not all marble floors and chrome. So if rustic is not your thing then you will probably enjoy the costal resorts of the south more.
