La Bodega was converted from an old wine bodega and farmhouses by the owners and your hosts Sheila and Ray Atkins.

It is 15 minutes from the Reina Sofia international airport and 600 metres above sea level offering spectacular views to the sea and surrounding countryside. La Bodega is far enough away from the major tourist areas but close enough to enjoy the facilities. If you play golf there are two golf courses, Golf del Sur and Amarilla Golf just 15 minutes away. The principle tourist area of the south, Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos with their superb beaches no more than 20 minutes, not forgetting the pine forests mountains and Canarian villages that are on our doorstep. San Miguel has everything you need, shops, bars, banks and good quality restaurants within walking distance. If you are looking for a tranquil location for your holiday, then La Bodega could be for you.
Your hosts at La Bodega cottages in San Miguel are Ray and Sheila Atkins. They developed this remarkable property over a period of three years and have been welcoming guests for the last eleven years.
The couple live in a separate property on the site and offer a friendly personal service. They have local knowledge and will help and offer advice on places to visit information on local restaurants and anything you want to know about the island. They have lived in Tenerife for 21 years and know the island very well.
Their best recommendations are their guests who return time and time again. They hope to welcome you.
We purchased the property in 1995 and slowly developed the cottages over a period of time.
The main reason for purchasing what was really a ruin of old farm buildings and an old house was the amazing potential and great location. We are just 15 minutes from the airport the beaches, golf courses and yet surrounded by an idyllic rural location. The added advantage of having the shops of San Miguel just a few minutes walk away, coupled with the friendliness of the local villagers and the distance from the touristy areas made our choice the right one.
The benefits of staying at La Bodega are very simple.
If you want a relaxing holiday a home from home with all the comforts. Do not want to be surrounded by hordes of people, would like to enjoy a location away from the tourist areas, yet be close enough to beaches, would like to enjoy the local restaurants of San Miguel or walk to the bakers for your freshly baked bread for breakfast. Then this could be your ideal holiday destination.
'Its always really nerve wracking when you are looking for your 'perfect' place to stay whilst on holiday... so it is such a delight when you find a gorgeous and wonderful sanctuary as this bodega; you've done an amazing job, Sheila and Ray on this beautiful old building. The attention to detail is everywhere. From the comfort and friendliness factor to the faries on the wooden log in the garden. So glad we came to Tenerife and even more thrilled we stayed here... Will recommend to all.' Louisa and Cameron
'The outstanding feature of La Bodega is the unique experience of being amongst local people which you would not have on any package holiday. Your attention to peoples needs are second to none. Wish we had a little longer to relax around La Bodega, hopefully we will get another opportunity soon.' Tania & Frank West Midlands UK
