OUR PROPERTIES IN El Sauzal
Little quiet village with a beautiful Spanish name is located on one of the Tenerife North hills. You would not believe how gorgeous local sceneries are! As a matter of fact, the villa Maria has probably one of the best views in the North, if not on the whole island. And it is not an exaggeration! From your terrace, you will see the majestic snow-capped mount El Teide, the rocky shore with swirling waves of the Atlantic ocean and amazing sunsets.
What really fits into the described picture is a glass of wine – don’t you think? Luckily, Tenerife North is famous for its vineyards, and specifically the town of Tacoronte that has most of them. For wine tasting, check out the Casa del Vino museum-restaurant which offers a selection of great local wines. But it is not only wine that this restaurant is famous for. The food is amazing here, the prices are very reasonable, and there is an exhibition on local wine production.
Another advantage of renting a villa in the North is that it is very green and quiet here – families with little children will appreciate that. Also, one of the best golden sand beaches on the island – Playa de las Teresitas – is located in some 30 minutes’ drive.
Hiking is very popular in the North – mount El Teide located quite close to El Sauzal, offers quite a few interesting hikes, some of them even foresee overnight stay in a lodge. If you want to do something really special and memorable, take a cable car to the El Teide peak and then hike down the mountain. It might be strenuous at times, but the views you see and emotions you feel will compensate for that. On a clear sunny day you will even see the island of La Gomera with a few little settlements.
So, are you ready for an adventure? Pack your backpack and enjoy this beautiful part of the island!
