About Christine Elizabeth Biggs

We live here in Finca La Fuera all year round. We are originally from England and we have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. We love living here in Tenerife as the weather is so nice all year round. We have a quiet tranquil home where, we can get to anywhere on the Island, whenever we want a day out. We love to meet new people and help them to enjoy the best of the Island for their holiday.

Christine Elizabeth Biggs purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Christine Elizabeth Biggs chose Parque natural del Teide

We moved to Tenerife in 2003. When we found our house we fell in love with it and the area. It has the most spectacular views of Mt Teide and also the Atlantic Ocean. The area is so quiet it is a pleasure to wake up here every day.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love living here in the Finca, because of the closeness to the most scenic side of Mt Teide. Also the cleanliness of the air, and the views of La Palma and the Ocean. The rural friendliness of the local Spanish is very welcoming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Michelle (Irish).This is a lovely property based in a very quiet and scenic area, the Casita is very clean and comes with lots of extras to make for a very comfortable holiday. The owners are very welcoming and have a great wealth of knowledge of the area, things to do and places to visit. There are restaurants and supermarkets a short drive away. Definitely a lovely place to go to escape a typical resort environment.

Monika (German). The Finca was restful and gorgeous. Chris and Ron were very helpful and they showed great sensitivity and seemed to know when to be there and when not to be there. Their approachable nature created an easy, uncomplicated atmosphere. That’s why we almost felt as if we were their personal guests. It has been a wonderful refreshing holiday.

Ian (English). Beautifully restored and with all the amenities needed for a perfect holiday. Incredible views and such a peaceful setting makes this my perfect getaway.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had just 3 nights at Finca La Fuera, but wish it could have been longer.

The set up is idyllic, views incredible, room spotlessly clean, and more amenities than you could need. I think that Cris and Ron have gone above and beyond to make this a real home away from home. The attention to detail is admirable.

We had a lovely short weekend, and it comes highly recommended.

Thank you so much!

Aimee, Germar and Leon

Lovely Peaceful Place with Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Tenerife on many occasions but always stayed in the south we decided to have a base for a week to explore the north this time and for my husband to be able to undertake some different walks. We were looking for somewhere traditional but with good facilities and central to most of the historic towns. Finca la Fuera fitted the bill perfectly. We stayed in La Casita. The arrangements prior to arrival were easy and we were given helpful information on how to get there. The apartment was spotless and it is clear from its beautiful appearance that the whole site has been a labour of love. Our arrival met with a warm reception, the accommodation was well stocked with all the basics that you often have to provide yourself plus bread, cheese, ham, wine etc so that we had a simple meal awaiting us which was really appreciated. Cris and Ron are perfect hosts with a wealth of local information, always there when you need them but never intruding. Because we were there in February we knew the weather would be warm in the day and cool in the evenings and one of the things that attracted us to this property was the log burner. It was lovely and made the place very cosy in the evenings. Best of all Ron cleared the ashes and relaid the fire every day. What luxury! We would highly recommend Finca la Fuera.

A week around Icod

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing week staying at Chris and Ron's property and would highly recommend it. The property itself is quite remote and a hire car is essential but with that comes the ability to see and explore more of Tenerife than the usual tourist beaches. Chris and Ron couldn't do enough to help us with advice and recommendations which we found really useful.

Whilst hesitant to hire a car - it can be a hassle - it was a seamless quick pick up and drop off at the airport (with Cica) that enabled us to discover the property and get more out of the holiday such as driving to Teide, Masca (a must but be prepared for some tight bends) and the beautiful town of Garachico.

The property is set quite a way off the main roads but we found it fine with the instructions. It was very clean, aired daily, and the views at night overlooking the towns and sea down below with the fire lit were very special and worth it.

10 out of 5 stars. Perfect! Quiet,

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The cottage was very comfortable. The bed was so comfortable and cosy we didn't get up until 9! Great walks near by. Excellent facilities at the cottage. We have stayed in many, many self-catering apartments and this one gets the stop spot. Plenty of wood for either the BBQ or the wood burning stove. Very, very clean and every kitchen utensil one needs. Cris and Ron were both very quick with any emails and queries. They were both very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend, in fact we have already sent a link to friends and families.

A wonderful, peaceful place in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were kind and accommodating in every way. They'd build a beautiful traditional style building and furnished it very nicely. It was January and each night we slept with out window open and I woke feeling I'd had the most restful sleeps of my life. I'd stay there again for sure.
