“Far from the madding crowd”
Reviewed December 17, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Sergio’s place is a wonderful hidden gem on a busy island, What great Air B&B–we were so pleased to have found this refuge. High up in a beautiful, quiet pine forest, the house is still very close to towns and sights so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. We really appreciated kind gestures like a basket of food on arrival, toys for our little one to play with, and great communication and advice. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you!

“Very nice & cosy cottage”
Reviewed December 14, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We booked the cottage end of october. It is high up the mountain, so a good (& not too loaded car) is recommended. It is in the middle of the woods, but you can reach the highway in about 5-10 minutes. You will have a beautiful view on the ocean everyday. It becomes rather chilly at this time of the year, but the house is very well equipped with a heating system.
The owner is very caring and we found a nice welcome package (some food: a variety of fruits, coffee, ...).
Some facts:
- High quality interior & excellent furnishing
- Good beds
- Very well equipped kitchen (we used the indoor-barbecue to grill fish and made some soup)

The house is huge, we have just been three persons but 4 (and even more) are easily possible to use the cottage.

Hope you are enjoying your stay as we did.

“Fantastic house in the mountains”
Reviewed November 3, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Why do you come to Tenerife? There are probably more than 1,000 reasons for this. Because of the reliable good weather. Because you want to refill some sunshine before or during the winter. Because you like hiking, just in a simple way. Or to climb the highest Spanish mountain, even from Bollullo beach. Because you would like to eat tasty and reasonable meals, sometimes in a rustic style Guachinche. Because you are fascinated by geology. Because you think volcanoes are great and here you have a choise of 321 here. Because you want to visit the Cueva del Viento. Because the friendliness of the Tinerfeños is pleasant for you.
These were reasons for us. In addition, we also came to find silence, which is sometimes hard to find in our hectic mid-European life. We found it here in Sergios and Yanis wonderful holiday house. But the word „house“ does not apply, it is a jewel, a gem. The first drive up here is already an experience. The location is fantastic. The forest is so beautiful. The decor is very tastefully and lovingly made in every detail. The furnishings are upscale, there is nothing lacking. Sergio was very friendly to us, explained everything excellantly and at a later he inquired whether everything was to our satisfaction. Numerous restaurants are easy to reach by car and invite you to eat. Yet cooking in the brilliant kitchen gives so much fun that you stay at home in the evening enjoying the sunset after diner with a glass of wine in your hand.
We have been looking for silence and found it. And the tranquillity, too.
All in all a pure pleasure.
Thank you Sergio and Yani for offering this beautiful house. We are looking forward to come back.

“Ideal way to discover Tenerife at your own pace”
Reviewed August 31, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We wanted to discover Tenerife, but wanted to avoid the "mass tourism hotels". This cottage was the ideal holiday for us, allowing us to combine excursions with days of just relaxing in a quiet environment. Sergio, Yani and their kids were there to give us a warm welcome and accompany us to the cottage. It's quite a climb through winding roads, which can be a bit challenging at first.

We truly enjoyed our time their, just relaxing with a good book and literally being above the clouds, where the only thing you hear is the chirping of birds. Other days we took of to discover the island. Sergio gave us some great tips, both before and during our stay, on things that are worth visiting in the neighbourhood.

I would warmly recommend this cottage to people who appreciate the beauty of nature and who want to discover the island at their own pace.

“simply perfect!”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We were impressed by Sergio hospitality, amazing place, dreamlike house, it was all ideal, best homestay far from home. Road slightly frightens for the first time for its steep rise, but it appeared ok for our small car. We'd like to spend holiday here some time else. Many thanks Sergio and his family!

“Beautiful and peaceful rustic chic home in the forest”
Reviewed August 13, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My husband and I had a fantastic time at Magallotes. The home and surroundings look as good (or even better) than the pictures. Being nestled in the forrest provided so much peace and quiet that I slept better here than I do at home.

Sergio was an excellent host. He met us at the meeting point and led us up the challenging road to the house (which we were able to do in our small Volkswagen Polo rental). He provided a lovely welcome package with cookies and breakfast foods. He also provided great hiking and touring suggestions!

Thank you Sergio for a great stay! We will stay here again!
