A holiday home in Tenerife is delightfully exotic and was suiting us to a T.  "Us" was my late husband and I in 1997 when we were property hunting in romantic Tenerife North,  with a rather ambitious two week holiday deadline.

The topic 'Our island' in the navigation bar is related to a holiday home in Tenerife. Why? That's the best way to enjoy it. This is done ideally during all the cold European winter months or several times a year. 

If your final choice for buying or renting was not a holiday home in Tenerife North or South you may miss out on carnival and amazing other festivals, on typical, nostalgic streets like Calle Iriarte,  found in North Tenerife's  Puerto de la  Cruz on


special walks or, on doing any kind of shopping to your heart's content while on your Tenerife vacation. Calle Iriarte with its typical Canary house Iriarte museum and many interesting little shops is right in the hub of the oldest Tenerife resort and offers many holiday homes to buy as well as holiday home rental.

Climate differences

 Mind you there is 1 or 2 degrees Celsius difference temperature between the Southern and Northern holiday home in Tenerife, while La Laguna on occasion may even be more cloudy and cool.
