Two bedroom Tenerife cottage
This cottage is for the discerning traveller who wants to enjoy the real Tenerife...not the one created especially for the tourists! It is situated in the traditional village of Chirche, just 3 kilometres from Guia de Isora in South West Tenerife.
The village is typical of the Canary Islands with narrow streets, picturesque houses and it's village square with pretty church. It is renowned for it's quality fruits which grow in abundance such as oranges, lemons, grapes etc. It is on the edge of the Teide National Park and has been designated an ecological area and as such the local council hope to preserve the existing old houses.
The situation of this village makes it ideal for walkers and there are several chartered walks in this part of the island and the maps and information are generally in folders for your use in the cottages.
The cottage is a traditional Canarian cottage, part of which is two storeys high. The top storey features the lounge with French windows leading onto a small roof terrace with seating, ideal for relaxing and looking at the splendid views.
There are two bedrooms; one bedroom has a double bed and the other has a single bed. Both have adequate storage. The lounge features a wooden floor, with a three piece suite, including a single sofa bed and a wood burning stove. Leading from the lounge via a staircase is a kitchen/ dining room with tiled floor. The kitchen area is tiled and has antique pine units with a granite work surface with a built in electric hob. There is a freestanding fridge freezer as well as kitchen utensils, crockery etc. Along the corridor from the kitchen area are French windows leading to the garden patio area with an old vine covering a wooden pergola and steps leading up to the private parking area. The bathroom is fully tiled and has a corner bath in white with antique pine panels, washbasin and w.c.
Numerous charter flights from all regional airports which normally arrive in Tenerife on Tuesdays or Fridays. Chirche is approximately 3/4 hour drive from Reina Sofia Airport. Taxis are readily available.
A car is absolutely essential for this villa. The owner can offer help with car hire if required. The owner prefers to meet clients at the airport to direct them back to the cottage. Bed linen is also provided, as is electricity. Bookings run from Friday to Friday throughout the year. Get in is from 3pm on the arrival day and guests are asked to vacate the cottage by 10am on the day of departure. There is a lovely restaurant in the village, about 10 minutes walk away, plus 2 more just up the road. Also within a short driving distance there are plenty of good typical restaurants and if you are looking for discos etc., the busy resorts of Las Americas and Los Cristianos are about half an hour away. There are no shops necessary in the village as all the local produce is delivered to the door, by the bread man, the fish man and the vegetable man etc. The large market town of Guia de Isora is 3 minutes by car and has large supermarkets, banks, chemists etc. plus the advantage of a 24 hour emergency medical centre.
