The house is ideally located for the coast, golf courses, countryside & mountains as the TF-1 motorway is just a 10 minute drive away, with 15-20 minutes drive to Golf del Sur and Amarilla Golf courses, beaches & Tenerife South airport. The main tourist areas of Playa de las Americas & Los Cristianos are a 25 minute drive, though there are smaller local beaches around the more traditionally Spanish town of El Médano, 20 minutes drive & famous for its windsurfing & kitesurfing. If you like fresh fish, soak up the local atmosphere in the small coastal village of Los Abrigos, a 15 minute drive away with several restaurants overlooking the harbour and its own fish market where you can bag yourself the catch of the day.
Nearest shops, banks, bakery, chemist, bars & restaurants are within walking distance (10-20 minutes walk). You can drive there in less than 5 minutes. San Miguel offers several reasonably priced restaurants providing mainly Canarian dishes - La Bodega, Asador San Miguel, Asador El Portillo and 4 Esquinas rural hotel, but there are also a few cafes serving mostly Canarian food but also some South American dishes such as arepas. There's also an Italian restaurant called Il Moca and an excellent patisserie called Tiramisú where you can sit out on the terrace enjoying good coffee and cake - a very popular spot with our guests!
It's a pleasant town to wander round and explore as it has some lovely old Canarian houses & a museum, La Casa de El Capitán, within 10 minutes walk of the property where you can see ancient artefacts from the age of the Guanches. Many people come here for walking as there are several historical points of interest in the area, and the Teide National Park with its spectacular volcanic scenery is approx 30 minutes drive from the house. There's also a cycling point in the village where you can hire bikes or take one of their guided tours.
Car hire is recommended, although there is a bus route through the village. Free parking is available near the house.
