    Casa Carmela is located in the picturesque village of La Guancha in the North of Tenerife.

    Whether you're looking for a romantic get away or a family holiday, Casa Carmela has it all! With a spacious roof terrace and paddling pool it's ideal for enjoying the Tenerife sunshine with your children. The interior, however, maintains its rustic origins and is perfect for relaxing with a loved one.

    Quiet and peaceful yet only 20 minutes drive from Puerto de la Cruz (the main holiday resort in the North of Tenerife). Only 15 minutes in the other direction is Icod de los Vinos home of the famous 'El Drago' (Dragon Tree) and local wine. San Marcos beach is also a short drive away.
