“Beautiful quiet location, perfect for a nice holiday away from large resorts.”
Reviewed April 12, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a great stay at Sergio's and Yani's villa. The location is spectacular, albeit with an interesting ride up the mountain to reach it. With a decent car, this was not a problem. The house is in a beautiful quiet location, but within easy reach of several nice towns.

When we arrived, Sergio was there to welcome us, and we appreciated the welcome basket of goodies. Everything was as described, and the house looked even better in real life compared to the photographs. The telescope to enjoy some stargazing was an added bonus.

We had a great stay in Tenerife, and in large part this was due to the fantastic house. It was perfect for our needs, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay away from large purpose built resorts.

“Great house & surroundings”
Reviewed January 15, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This house is something special! the other positive reviews are spot on.

The drive up is daunting, coming from a pancake-flat country (Denmark). If you make it all the way up, you are rewarded with a charming home off the beaten track.

Our 3 young children all slept in the attached "potato room", which is located in a separate unit next to the house. They loved it.

Sergio was very helpful before, during and after our stay. We could not ask for a better host.

We highly recommend this home.

“Wonderfull Pre-Christmas Time”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We've had a wonderful time in this retreat at the edge of the woods. I definitelly loved the place, its was so peaceful and quiet. The house is really great. As I am much into renewal energy this place was perfect for my friend and me. Sergio has done a wonderful job restoring the building and saving its rural charme. I was very fond of the kitchen und the grill and of course of the conservatory.

Sergio is the best host you can imagine. He had some real good advice for us where to go and what to see. And whenever we've had a question he was there to help - so thank you so much!

I know I am stupid to let everybody know how wonderful this place was - I am really affraid the house might already be booked when we'd like to come back in spring or autumn :)

“Idyllic location”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

If you are looking for a rural location then, Sergio's villa is the place to be.
You will need a car as the house is situated up, up and up a long winding road.
Once there, all you can hear is the wind in the pine trees and bird song.
The grounds of the house itself are enormous with many walking tracks departing from the door.
The accommodation is first rate and Sergio, a very affable man, can not do enough for you.
We were greeted with a table full of welcoming snacks and wine.
For those of you able to master it, there is a telescope for exploring the night sky. Light pollution is almost non-existent.

“Wonderful get away with stunning views, great surroundings in a lovely home.”
Reviewed October 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016


My wife and I stayed with our young toddler and we absolutely loved it. The house has a lovely character and contains everything you need for a great stay and we enjoyed cooking on the indoor BBQ! The drive up to the house is rather exciting, we followed Sergio up in the dark when we first arrived and it was a bonus adventure! It's not too bad after the first time so don't let it put you off, just expect a lot of 1st & 2nd gear! The house is fantastic and has everything you need. We loved the kitchen and cooked our evening meals and ate in more than we ate out! Good supermarkets and shops are near by so getting supplies is very easy.

Lovely beaches are a short easy drive away, towns surrounding are full of character and are worth a visit as is the natural beauty of the island. We went to the mountain, National Parks, forrests, beaches, we drove to Anaga and Santa Cruz easily as it's you can get on the main road round the island very quickly and easily. I would recommend staying here to anyone, it's a fantastic place to stay with great walks near by, wildlife around you, amazing views down to the coast, beautiful clear night skies, places to visit close by and all while staying in an incredibly comfortable home from home. We will return!
