The Experience

Inch through ancient village streets to find, on the outskirts, a cluster of four homely cottages with sea views and a shared heated pool. Sheila and Ray bought this century-old wine bodega years ago and have painstakingly restored it, keeping as much architectural history as they could: antique wine casks masquerade as giant flowerpots and chunky beams remain. Each single-storey cottage sleeps two (not suitable for children) and sports rustic furniture, tiled floors, a vase of wild flowers, pictures and photos, and a welcoming bottle of wine. Bedrooms have large beds (one has a twin), good lighting and enough storage and hanging space; bathrooms have bath and shower and are sparkling clean. Wander through to the main house to choose a book or a DVD, or help yourself to a cold beer from the honesty fridge. Kitchens have all you need, but if you feel lazy you can order dinner home-cooked by Sheila. The salt water pool is a fairly good size and has plenty of loungers around it, so this will suit sociable types. You can stroll to the village for restaurants and bars, you’re close to southern Tenerife’s coastline, pine forests and golf courses.

Great place to stay for a quiet holiday - relaxing if you want as we did, but fellow guests enjoyed doing lots of touring. Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation, lovely grounds and an excellent salt water swimming pool. Sheila and Kathryn produce super meals - we had intended to self-cater, but in the end sat back and enjoyed their cooking! Like all the other guests we intend to return.

Richard & Linda, Epsom

Sheila was a great host, the property was delightful. Our cottage (Bouganville) had a v. spacious living room and kitchen and it was all v. clean and well-equipped. Sheila had thought of everything, including beach towels and bath robes, and she offered great advice both through the booking process and during our stay. Books, DVDs, beverages all at hand in the reception and offers for groceries and meals if required. San Miguel is a little off the tourist trail (an advantage), but close to the main road leading in all directions. We had some good walks from the cottage. Would certainly return.

Della, Rovigo, Italy

Sheila,Ray and their daughter Katherine, run this gem like a finely tuned clock. They have clearly toiled over many years to transform this old Spanish bodega into a rural retreat worthy of the highest accolade. Each of the four little cottages offer the guest a comfortable stay in pleasant surroundings with a beautiful swimming pool and sunbathing areas. I can also highly recommend the food, beautifully served by Sheila, to order. Thanks for a great 10 days.

Each 'cottage' provides excellent accommodation for two adults. Quiet, away from the beach crowds of south and south west Tenerife, a real oasis. There are tables to eat out at, a swimming pool with loungers, a garden with orange, mango etc. trees that you are invited to pick from. Sheila and Ray are perfect hosts - there when you need them but not if you don't! They are always happy to provide excellent advice, information and suggestions about anything you might want to do on the island - places to visit (or avoid!), walks, sporting activities, restaurants etc. Perfect holiday. Will return!

Liz, Newbury

Wonderful oasis in Tenerife, so quiet and peaceful. Accommodation is great and plenty of space for four couples. San Miguel has everything you need and you are in a great place for exploring the island including Mount Teide (David climbed twice on his bike) and not far from quiet beaches with wonderful fish restaurants. We have had a fabulous holiday here.
