|Further details indoors|
The studio has a large,covered terrace with comfortable cane furniture, perfect for relaxing. It doesn't have much of a view as it faces the adjacent building, although you can see the harbour, off to the left, from the front of the terrace. It also rarely gets any sun however we find this a bonus in hot weather as it helps to keep the studio cool.
Both the front door and the french doors to the terrace feature security grills and there is also a safe for your use in the studio for added peace of mind.

The Tenerife region
The most prominent attraction on Tenerife is Mount Teide, Spain’s highest Peak and very popular with tourists and locals. There is the Loro Park (Parrot Park) in the North at Puerto de la Cruz, which reputedly has the largest population of Penguins outside of Antarctica amongst it’s attractions.
Santa Cruz, the islands capital is excellent for shoping and just south of the city is a large Carrefour shoping complex which houses a number of shops and a very large supermarket.
Santa Cruz is also the home of Club Deportivo Tenerife, the islands main football team, who currently play in the Spanish second division. There is a fan club operating from Las Americas which consists of mainly British ex-pats. They attend every home game. If you are interested in joining them take a look at their website for more details. www.armadasur.com. It's a great day out for any football fan.
Closer to Los Cristianos, there is the Aqua-park (Water Park) in Torviscas alto.
The area immediately around the complex is quite quiet despite the numerous bars and restaurants all within a few minutes walk.
There are also several supermarkets nearby stocking an excellent range of items.
Los Cristianos is generally more relaxed environment than its near neighbour Playa de Las Americas.
The town centre is 10-15 minutes walk away, or five minutes by taxi. There you will find the superb beaches, Sunday Market, wide variety of shops and the harbour with its busy comings and goings. There is a working fishing fleet, ferries to other Canary Islands and numerous boat trips on offer - to see the whales and dolphins, for fishing, or just cruises along the picturesque coast.
The unspoilt and picturesque Island of Gomera is just 75 minutes away by ferry and well worth a visit.
The shopping in and around the town centre is excellent, ranging from tourist souvenir shops right through to perfume, leather goods & quality clothing shops.
There is an excellent café-culture around the town & especially the beach-front area. There are a great many restaurants offering dining experiences from all around the world. The bars range from bright & lively, with live music or karaoke, to quiet and relaxed & there are many authentically local bars & cafes, frequented by the Spanish & Canarian residents.
Just outside Los Cristianos is the famous Siam Park www.siampark.net/en/
A little further away are The Monkey Park, The Camel Park and Aqualand.
Another place well worth a visit is Loro Parque which is located on the North of the island. www.loroparque.com
