“An authentic taste of Tenerife”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

The antidote for anyone who might have prejudices about holidaying in Tenerife - this is Tenerife prior to the package holiday development of places such as Playa de Las Americas, but with modern comforts. La Bodega is situated in a small town unaffected by mass tourism, and its four cottages have an authentic Canarian ambience. Stroll 150m east to eat at Los Cuatro Esquinas restaurant, or 150m west to eat at La Tascita de Nino, for genuine Canarian food, both run by helpful friendly owners ( who speak good English). Or stay in the well appointed cottages for excellent food prepared by Sheila. Or cook for yourself, with food bought from the supermarket 5 mins walk away. Have an afternoon coffee at one of the town cafes and settle into the Canarian pace of life (definitely not north european), after a morning walk along one of the marked trails into the surrounding countryside, amongst the wonderful plant life and the volcanic rocks. Or just lounge by the pool with a book, enjoying the colour of the flowers of the garden, insulated from all sound except birdsong. In the evening, you can catch up on movies you may have missed by borrowing a DVD from Sheila's well-stocked DVD library. All the attractions of Tenerife are easily accessed from San Miguel (we would definitely recommend visiting Masca and Teide), and there is secure parking for your hire car on site (not that San Miguel is the sort of place that you need to worry about the safety of your car). Sheila and Ray are unobstrusive hosts, but always available for information about where to go and what to see, and for any assistance that might be required. Perfect base for a holiday combining activity and relaxation, free from the bustle of the main resorts.

Just returned from 5 nights with Sheila and Ray at La Bodega. We wanted a few days to chill and this place delivers perfectly. The pool is a lovely sun trap, various outdoor tables for morning breakfasting with distant sea views, and your own two person accommodation to cook for yourself, maybe take in a film from the owners' library, or catch up on that new book. If cooking isn't your thing there are at least 2 decent restaurants within a 5 minute stroll or Sheila offers a good menu - the quail were fab! The gardens are fragrant, pick yourself some oranges and lemons, and just relax.

For someting different, pretty, clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxing, you can't go wrong at La Bodega. This was our second visit and again we thoroughly enjoyed our ten days here. Sheila and Ray are welcoming and helpful hosts. From lazing and relaxing by the pool, visiting the island's towns and coastlines, to walking in El Teide National Park, La Bodega in San Miguel is the ideal location. The village bread shop supplies fresh baked bread, croissants, cakes 7 days a week, the little supermarket is very well stocked, there are restaurants and cafes and also Sheila's cooking which is excellent. You definitely need a car if you want to see the island. If you want noisy bars and nightlife, this is not the place to be, if you want a lovely relaxing peaceful holiday I can definitely reccommend la Bodega. You won't be disappointed.....

Just returned from 9 nights at La Bodega, once you close those gates you are in a perfect haven. We stayed in Jasmine which was perfect we had everything we needed and Shelia was always on hand to give advice on the area and also to make her delicious evening meals. If you want winter sun a beautiful quiet location La Bodega is just for you.

We've been to Tenerife several times before and stayed different places, but never before in a fantastic place as La Bodega. Not only is the place beautiful, quiet, clean, pretty and cosy - Shiela and Ray are also the perfect hosts. They both made us feel welcome and home and they were helpfull in a very relaxed way.
It all made our vacation very nice - and made us want to come back to Shiela, Ray, La Bodega, San Miquel and all the nice places to go in Tenerife.
See you.....

We spent a week in Frangipani, courtesy of Ray and Sheila. The location was quiet and peaceful, with many places to relax in the grounds of the old winery. Sheila cooked for us for 4 nights out of 7, which we really enjoyed. Her cooking was excellent, her wine list was superb and her prices beat the local restaurants. They could not do enough to please and were genuinely nice people. The accommodation was well maintained and very clean, with all the features you could need. This was our first visit to Tenerife and we were pleasantly surprised. San Miguel is ideally placed for exploring Tenerife and Weill definitely be back again in the next few years. Would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a high standard, attentive service and a place to chill out.

Room Tip: We managed a look in three of the four cottages and there is not much to choose - they are all nice!
