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.
