“Fabulous character place in real Tenerife village with amazing views of the coast”
Reviewed January 8, 2011

We stayed here for a week at the start of december and had a great time. The english owners are out of their way helpful and friendly both when booking and when there. ( especially when the garage filled up our car with the wrong fuel and they helped rescue us from the base of the volcano!). The cottages and gardens look even better than in the pictures and being able to pick oranges every day made our stay. Lots of bars and restaurants in the village and the well stocked supermarket (which you can walk to)never seemed to shut. Nice to stay somewhere with few tourists to feel a bit of real Tenerife. However only a 15 drive down to the beach.

La Bodega is a very unique place to stay in Tenerife. We have just returned from our second Christmas visit, which was just as perfect as the last. The 4 converted cottages within the walled historic Bodega are ideal for a very peaceful rest. They are very tastefully furnished, well equipped and look onto a delightful garden and swimming pool, not to mention the panoramic view of the sea and coastal area.
Every possible holiday activity can be enjoyed from la Bodega, we prefer golf and had the choice of at least 5 courses within a 10/15 min drive.
Ray & Sheila, who have lovingly restored La Bodega are on hand to help with any information required and having sampled Sheila's cooking (an excellent Christmas Day lunch) the availability of the La Bodega menu is an extra not to be missed.
Although La Bodega has been our "winter escape", it is idyllic all the year round and we look forward to returning as soon as possible.

Fantastic hosts and a fabulous place to stay. The cottages are comfortable and clean with all the facilites you could possibly need. The pool area is great and it's set it in beautiful gardens. If you are looking for a quiet stay I would highly recommend La Bodega, you do need a car but getting around is easy. Would most certainly recommend it as a relaxing hideaway.

I am Marina from Romania , a romantic traveller that would ever avoid crwods and "commercial" places! I had the look to smartly check the internet with the wording "charming rural Tenerife " and the result I got was La Bodega!!!! the best surprise in the middle of October! The best Value for Money! the nicest hosts, 2 funny and warm English - Sheila and Ray, married (and married to Tenerife San Miguel village:)) for the last 20 years! The welcome wine bottle in the room that pleasantly surprised me and my boyfriend, was not only good but only the beginning of the pleasant vacation that Sheila and ray offered! Tranquility, smiles, "how are you", morning breakfast with Champagne on the terrace (I prepared the breakfast, they offered the splendid landscape of Atlantic Ocean at the door steps), the swimming pool with nice blue ceramic tiles, the oranges or pomegranate you could handpick from the garden, the idylic room decoration, the quiet surroundings, the 100% availibility at all times, and the list could continue forever! The perfect match of beautifulness and nice people, this could be found in La Bodega with ray and Charles! Icing on the cake is that if one evening you feel lasy, Sheila will cook and serve you in the garden, just tell her before 2 o'clock! We will definitely come next years, it's addiction!

The huge black metal gates belie the beauty that lies behind them. The gates shut and you are in self- contained world of sub-tropical gardens in ancient courtyards. The accomodation is understated luxury; the views are breathtaking. The friendliness of the owners and the the quality of the food they provide make it very tempting to stay in this utterly tranquil place for the whole of your stay. To do so, however, would be to miss out on the excellent Canarian restaurants that are so close by and the wonderful scenery that is there to be explored. Wonderful!

We spent a wonderful, relaxing week at La Bodega and saw a wonderful unspoilt side of Tenerife. Sheila & Ray have created a beautiful and sympathetic example of traditional Canarian charm. The accomodation was second to none, spotless, homely but traditional and rustic at the same time. The pool was lovely & much needed during the calima (40 degrees in the shade!) and Sheila & Ray were informative and attentive when needed but left us in complete privacy at all other times.

San Miguel is a gem - as the other reviews state, a handful (more than enough for a week) of wonderful, traditional eateries with not a tourist type menu in sight. As it is unspoilt by the Playa de las Americas type masses, it is also relatively cheap compared to home. We would particularly recommend La Tasquita de Nino; Cuatro Esquinas & La Pimienta Verde.

We had a car, which I would recommend, although we didn't feel the need to venture out most days, but it was lovely to be able to venture up to the north of the island (the forests are wonderful) and to visit Teide in the evening when the crowds have died down.

We will definitely be back, hopefully next time with 6 other friends to block book this gem.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at La Bodega. The four apartments surrounding the pool are all equally stunning (Shelia the owner let us have a little peak at two of the other apartments before the next guests arrived) The kitchens are of high standard well equipped,with great granite sufaces. The gardens are beautifully kept with fruit trees and loads of quiet nooks and crannies to sit,read and relax.
Many thanks for Shelia and Ray for a great week of peace and quiet set in a traditional spanish town that seems a million miles away from resorts. Book today before too many people find out about it.
