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.
We stayed at La Bodega for 10 days and found it to be the perfect location from which to see the real Tenerife. Situated in the village of San Miguel it is ideal for walking to the shops and restaurants but is still very peaceful. The fiesta was very lively and great fun even if it was a little noisy some nights! The cottages are beautiful and have everything you need for a perfect holiday. Sheila cooks fantastic meals and could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend La Bodega for anyone needing a lovely relaxing break.
