Ancient Manor of Tenerife aristocracy

Indeed, this stately mansion which has a rather understated appearance on its outside was residence of the counts of Gomera. However, its welcome plaque promises distinction and secrets inside.

Most of the Red Quinta's shell has been shed inside and out. This romantic hotel of Garachico was totally revamped. High beams which have the color of Teak form handsome, lofty ceilings. A generous hotel patio repeats the building's former colonial elegance. Tall palms with other lush green plants form islands in there.

The plants almost give it a Victorian touch. Enjoy this tranquil oasis to relax with your notebook and free Wifi.
So did the Thirty-something couple of Wales whom I met there in December 2011. They told me that they loved this romantic hotel.

Romance and mystery

It captures your attention. It draws you up and plays with your curiosity. Spot more intriguing background illumination of this romantic hotel whose first name Quinta is Portuguese for farm.

Most stunning fusion of classic interior decorating with colonial backgrounds of Tenerife style

The Quinta Roja's classic, modern interior is even superior to a boutique hotel, while the latter's modern set up often lacks contrast. Contrary to that, the design of the Quinta Roja has it and is therefore much more alluring. Its Colonial Canary house frame sets the base for a nostalgic mood. Its classic furniture are part of the trend setting foundation. Ornamental details enhance it. This romantic haven of great individuality excels in a different way compared to other Colonial Spanish architecture, as seen at Hotel El Mirador. Indeed, this charming small hotel of Tenerife's most tragic town of the past has many enchanting features of ornamental surprises with artistic touch. The decorations are often very simple but, make good focal points and harmonize perfectly.

Take your breakfast on the peaceful, outside veranda which is flanked by plants. Watch the world start the day on the town square Libertád.

Gaze at the trees like a young girl in the picture. She discovered birds who tweat poetic rhymes.

A young lady sat by a table. Later, a young man came. The evening had quickly turned dark.

Idyllic like Paris at night with lovers and festive light

The man put his arm around the young woman who had waited quite long. Both walked off too fast for my camera to catch them sharp without tripod.

Church Iglesia Santa Ana

Listen to the ancient bells of the slender tower of Santa Ana when they strike a chord of days gone by. Discover them by Tenerife photos Garachico which reveal Quinta Roja's surroundings with many a night scene with moonshine for romantic bliss.

Romeria San Roque Garachico

Staying at Finca Rojo Hotel for the spectacular Garachico Romeria festival is an ideal option.
The date for its next event between the end of July and middle of August has not been decided yet. The celebrations will start in the church of Santa Ana, while the street parade will follow. More details can be found later by

In fact, Hotel La Quinta Roja has the most gordeous, dream-like views in its immediate vicinity at night thanks to an amazing historical building and its lit up square where tourists gaze in awe at so much poetic beauty. It's the large church yard of Garachico Convent San Francisco which is bathed in the most embalming, warm light, above all when a full moon is up.

Retreat to the roof terrace to see mount Teide on the horizon. Go there at night to stargaze and spot a nostalgic La Gomera sundown above Garachico's beach. Quinta Roja Garachico is a perfect place to write poems, for honeymoons and to celebrate weddings and anniversaries. Agatha Christie the novelist who was so fond of Hotel Taoro and Tenerife North would have loved Quinta Roja and its village surroundings. However, it's unlikely that the former estate of the Gomeran gentry was looking as good as now in the early XX century.

Have dinner in the handsome, romantic hotel dining room. It is tucked behind the interior yard. Visualize that chamber music was played there once for the dance of the house.

Take a morning or night dip in the hotel's jacuzzi on its upper floor. Or go there to swim or to gaze at the rooftops of a former town which had once owned the island's most important port and riches until drama and tragedy burned and washed most of it into the sea. Times come and go and may tell a story like a legend of history Tenerife which makes your mind spin. Now, Garachico hotels and many an old house tell some of its tale of romance, love and fate.

Alternative hotel option for Garachico
