Description

The 11 hectare private country estate has two buildings, one used as the guesthouse and the other used as a storage facility. Given the considerable size of the property, our guests will be able to hike through the ancestral Laurisilva Forest and the farming areas of the property while experiencing the luxury of a private space. Not only this, but you can also sit on the terrace and enjoy the sunset and the magnificent view of the Anaga Mountains and the great Teide volcano in the distance… And that’s not all. Tegueste and Pedro Alvarez are few kilometers down the road. The beaches and natural pools of Bajamar are only 9km away and the World Heritage city of La Laguna is just 5km from the house. FREE 24 WIFI AND LAP TOP FOR OUR GUESTS!

Location description from owner

The Canary Islands region

The area is great. It is a National Park and it is close to La Laguna (UNESCO World Heritage City) and the door to the magnificent beaches of Taganana (0 tourist there and the hidden secret of Tenerife). Anaga forest is just magnificent. Near cities are La Laguna (5 minutes by car) and Tegueste (very rooted on Tenerife traditions). Cilmate is good and combines the sunny days with cool nights. The area is very green and lush and that is what it make it so different being in Tenerife.

Tegueste

Quite village with all basic amenities. Very traditional and very good food in the area. It is 5 minutes away by car or public transportation. You will find everything there (pharmacy, grocery shops, etc.). During the summer it take place the traditional "fiestas", one of the best in Tenerife. It is called the "Romeria" and there are lots of food, dancing and obviously, wine.

“marvelous finca with great view on the Teide”

Reviewed 6 May 2012

Finca el Roque was the perfect place for us - family with two young children - to spend some wonderful holidays. The house is exactly as described: well equipped with laptop (internet), washing machine, big kitchen with everything you need, wonderful big garden, quiet surrounding area. We used the terrace and the barbecue a lot. The owners provided a cot, toys, and a pushchair for the kids, which was extremely useful for us. The owners of the finca welcomed us very warmly. The finca is a perfect starting point for trips to the Anaga mountains (15 min by car to the mountains and you can start hiking) as well as to la Laguna, Santa Cruz, Puerto de la Cruz and Teide.

“Perfect retreat, secluded and yet close to everything. For quiet, adventure, nature, beach, history, food lovers alike.”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2012

My wife and I spend 6 perfect days in the second week of January at the Finca del Roque. The pleasant surprises started from the very beginning. Close from the airport and easy to find using the directions given by the owner. Very quiet and with a tremendous view of the valley and of Teide and surrounding mountains. Well appointed small villa, perfect for a couple, two couples or a maximum of five persons. The owner, who was there to greet us with a bottle of fine local wine, was very helpful throughout our stay with recommendations of local attractions, restaurants and trips. The location is remote enough to be able to enjoy the perfect quiet and relaxation of a rural setting (11 acres property) and yet only minutes drive from a major highway and close to supermarkets, shops, beaches, picturesque towns, vineyards, etc. Indeed it is surprising that a location so close to major attractions in the North of the island can be so quiet. Our activities were varied. On the first day, a Sunday, we visited La Laguna, taking in the historic town and its quaint, specific architecture, much of it world heritage treasures. We were glad to take the advice of the owner and visited the local market - a lively and diverse collection of stands where one can buy produce, meat, wine, cheese, teas, and many others. No better way to spend a quiet lunch than having a plate of cold cuts with fresh vegetables, pickled olives and peppers and a bottle of cold local dry white. Even in January, the days were warm enough, even if evenings are a tad cold and we strongly recommend you pack a couple of warm sweaters and long sleeved shirts. The second day we took a car trip in the Anaga Natural Park . In Cruz del Carmen there is a great info center with competent staff ready to advise you on shorter or longer hiking or walking trips. We chose to take a more taxing trip - from Chamorga to Roque Bermejo and back and we spend about 4 hours in a wonderful landscape of volcanic mountains with marvelous sea views. Even if the altitude difference between Chamorga and the sea level is considerable, we managed well the effort of the trip, even if we're not especially fit or trained. We spent the next day visiting the town of Orotava . Nice local architecture, interesting small museums and great gardens. The local info center has maps and competent advice for travelers. We also visited the Monje vineyard, where the owner was present to give us the tour and help us with a great tasting of the local wines. Most of them are made from grapes specific to the island (Listran black or white, Negramoll, etc...) and are perfected both in traditional manner (very surprising mix of white and red varieties) and in a more modern fashion. Tip: try the locally made chocolates filled with vinegar (indeed, vinegar, however they're delicious). The following day we felt like going to the beach. We traveled first on the coast close to Santa Cruz to the well known beach of Terrasitas . It was unfortunately windy that day and we chose not to stay. Not a problem. Less than an hour drive took us to Bajamar, on the other side of the island. A nice, town beach, with a gulf and a couple of natural swimming pools with sea water. We sunbathed and even took a short dip - hey, can you ask for anything better in January? On the way back we dropped to a restaurant recommended by the owner, "El Rincon del Mago" or smth like that (don't remember the name exactly, however there are cards at the finca). We shared a huge snapper grilled to perfection and enjoyed being the only customers in a local, unpretentious and definitely affordable restaurant. It is not much to look at, the food was however fantastic although simple and the service friendly and attentive. We went for another easy hike the following day, starting again with a visit to the Cruz del Carmen info center. We wanted a secluded but easy walk and were given hand drawn maps of a nice walk through laurisilva - the specific forest of the island, of a type that is no longer found in Europe . A perfect trip in the shade of the trees surrounded by huge ferns, mossy rocks and singing birds. What better way to end the day than a barbecue at the finca with a matured steak on the grill and another bottle of local red from bodega Monje? We spent the last day at home, the end of our stay was near and we felt we didn't enjoy enough the views and the peace of the valley. Indeed, from the very first rays of the sun awakening the song birds that nest in the trees on the property, though the warm afternoon and the cool night with the moon shining over the valley, the changing light and the smells and the sounds surrounding us made that an experience in no way inferior to a great sound and light spectacle. We took in the late evening the advice of the owner and visited a truly unique restaurant, El Bisone. You would be well advised to call in advance and reserve. We did, and we were again the only clients there. But what a treat! The owner and his wife were there to greet, serve and cook for us. The menu is eclectic and they would propose a number of dishes or wines according to your mood or preferences. Moreover, the location itself is a mansion filled with antiques, from photos dating to the 19th century to all kinds of curios, musical instruments, china, pottery etc, etc, etc. A truly rewarding experience. And so, our too short stay in La Finca del Roque came to an end. We are still pining for what we used to call "our valley". Thanking our gracious and most helpful host we hope that - one day - we'll come back.
